    Default what to do with extra samples

    Hello-
    I'm starting to amass a large collection of samples. Fun, but I'm only interested in purchasing one or two out of many. I don't want to throw away all these samples--that seems wasteful. How do I get them in the hands of interested folks? I'm happy to send them out free of charge as long as the recipient pays for postage. These are good samples from Nordstrom, The Perfumed Court and Surrender to Chance.
    Thanks! I don't have any local friends who are into perfume.

    In my case I hang on to most of my samples. I'll go back through them again in a year or two and see if my opinion has changed. I've had many frags that I really disliked at first, but then came around to at least liking them.

    You could mention it in the Sticky: Free to a Good Home - Men's Giveaway Thread 2017 - 2018 - 2019 in the Male fragrance Discussion Forum and see what responses you get.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Thank you! I love your avatar. Not too many hyena fans out there in the world. My daughter is obsessed with them.

    You could donate them to a charity thrift shop or shelter.

    Offer them on Basenotes for someone else to try and experience, there are a few threads on Basenotes that allow you to do this.

    List them in the for sale here on Basenotes. I've purchased a number of samples from others here, even half full. Depending on the sample itself I've seen them go for $1 each plus shipping (roughly).

    On many occasions I do include samples in both bottle purchases and swaps in packages.
