Surrender To Chance Gift Certificate

Hiya Happy Huffers,

One of the things I love MOST about this mad fragrance addiction I have is Sample and Decant Stores. The crew I use the most is Surrender To Chance. They have a great selection, reasonable postage rates and are friendly and helpful whenever I have a question. I know the gang that runs the business through the Perfume Posse Scentsation Bus Tour in May 2013. They are a fabulous and fun crew and they made me feel like family from, the first minute. As you may have noticed I look for family everywhere, surprising how often I find it too.

  25. Hey Portia,

    I just love these decant shops. They give people a chance to dibble and dabble in many types of fragrances without breaking the bank or blind buying a full bottle. I especially love the sample sets.

    I would love to try Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris Pluriel Masculin. Everything he creates is a aromatic wonder! He really knows how to construct great fragrances using high quality synthetics and natural ingredients. I see it’s new to the StC shop.

    I follow via email. Thanks so much for the draw!
