Hey there Crew,

I loved doing this so much, LET’S DO IT AGAIN!!

There are a bunch a samples & decants that sit here, tested but now in the discard pile. Some of the reasons for being there? Maybe I bought a FB, it had an issue that renders it unwearable, I liked it but have something similar, somehow I have double, I hated it, I LOVED it and completely forgot about it, I’ve moved on. So many reasons, so MANY samples. They are all used a bit but they have heaps for testing and trying. This pack has mainly dabs rather than spritzers but there are some with atomisers. I know you’re going to love at least something in this pack.

Most of these samples have been purchased from Perfume Niche, LuckyScent, Posh Peasant, My Perfume Samples and Surrender To Chance since 2010, but some are gifts or manufacturers samples.

    What a wonderful give away, Portia ! I have been sampling Frederic Malles lately. Would love to win this set, as Precious Oud has been on my wish list for Some time. I follow via mail and FB.

    Hi Portia
    Follow by twitter,facebook and e mail.Sampled Aerin Lauders four new scents and loved the rose scented one.Cant remember the name exactly of the Rose one but its nice.

  5. greennote2 says:

    Hey Portia, an amazing set of samples you’re giving away!

    I recently sampled Kerosene Santalum Slivers. First time around it didn’t do it for me. But this time I got a lovely great big whack of lemon (lemon!) on the opening and then a nice ride through to the drydown. I’m glad I persevered.

    I follow by email and RSS feed.

  6. Gina Tabasso says:

    I follow via email. The last decant that I tested was by Solstice Scents. She makes interesting, lovely things and is a nice person!

  7. Jaybee says:

    Oooh, droolworthy samples! Annick Goutal’s Vent de Folie was a nice sample, a raspberry-scented breeze. Follow by email. 🙂

  8. Lyubov says:

    Dearest, Portia,
    thanks again for a good chance! I am most curious about the two from SOIVOHLE, but the whole pack is gorgeous, and I would pay the ones I know forward to someone else to enjoy!
    The last time I fell for a new (to me, of course) fragrance to the extent of craving a full bottle was when I tested White Zagora from The Different Company! It’s almost a mono fragrance, a study in neroli, but it gave me butterflies in the stomach! I am so easy sometimes… 😛
    I follow by email, on the FB page, and in Google +.

    Hello Portia, Thanks for this chance. We followers are lucky to read such a generous blogger. Last month,as a newcomer to the scent scene I wanted to try a ‘classic’ so went for a sample of Bandit by Robert Piguet. Its Initial whiff was quite a whack to the nostrils but quietened down mid way though. Now working up the courage to test Fracas, also Robert Piguet! I follow via email.

  10. willa says:

    I want to win this pack! 🙂 My favourite samples of late are from Aerin Lauder. Email

  11. FeralJasmine says:

    Sure, enter me! My most recent sample that I loved was Feve Delicieuse from fact, despite my no-buy, I am thinking about one of those vat-sized bottles. I follow by email.

  12. Bec says:

    Thanks for another great giveaway! My most recent decant is Tilda Swindon – like this, which I am loving. Am tempted to get a full bottle. The only downside is that it doesn’t last too long on me.

  18. Aelfrik says:

    I follow via email – And my most recent sampling that tickled my fancy was Coven by Andrea Maack. Come summer Imma gonna need a full bottle methinks.

    Thank you.

    What a beautiful way to welcome your followers, to taste delicious samplers of fragrances and tickle ones nose with scented notes of fancy. I follow you by email and think this is divine. I recently tried Dolce by Dolce and Gabanna, I am enjoying its light and feminine touch.

  23. jamie s says:

    Thanks for the giveaway. I follow via email. I recently tried the scent that Barbara Herman created for the vintage perfume project. Night flower is fabulous!

  24. Jessi bowler says:

    I follow by Email. I recently sampled Aerins lilac path and fell in love. Already purchased FB!
    Thank you

  25. Fifi says:

    Hi, Portia – thanks for another fun giveaway! I follow by email. Recently got hold of Hermes Equipage sample and fell in love. Will have to buy the FB because a guy in my office keeps stopping by to spritz the sample and it will soon be gone.
    Much aloha,

  26. Teri Singer says:

    I follow your lovely site via email and I recently sampled ‘Rose Lipstick’ -Frederic Malle.

  27. Winterlude says:

    Man oh man, I almost want to sign up for Twitter just so I can get an extra crack at these beauties! There are a bunch here I’ve been wanting to try.
    I just got a bit of Tom Ford’s Shanghai Lily and it is lovely. It came in a grab bag and I’m really happy I got it. I follow via email, thanks for the draw!

  28. Fazal Cheema says:

    I recently sampled Christian Tortu Eau Fraiche and first whiff told me why it must not be in production is nothing but high quality citrus essential oils…I love eau sauvage in vintage formula but it is so difficult to create a marvelous citrus creation that doesn’t merely smell like lime or pinesol. Tortu’s Eau Fraiche is simply breathtaking but unfortunately nonexistent now..i wonder how many have smelled this.

    I follow APJ through email

  29. Morrigan says:

    Imogen by Evocative Perfumes. Not at all the kind of scent I normally go for, it’s very powdery, floral and feminine, but I’m really enjoying the sample while it lasts.
    I follow by email.

  30. puhfume says:

    Thanks for the draw Portia. I follow by email. The perfume I sampled recently that really took my breath away was Frederic Malle’s Une Fleur de Cassie. I love that it feels very classical and yet retains a modern sensibility – luminous and not too powdery.

  31. Irina says:

    I follow via e-mail
    my last “wow” was Chanel-Misia
    thanks for the draw

  32. Ricky Blue says:

    I follow through Bloglovin’ and I recently got a sample of Tauer’s PHI-Une Rose de Kandahar, which I thought was gorgeous. Now that I think of it, in the same LuckyScent order I got a vial of Keiko Mecheri Lunea and liked that quite a bit as well.

  33. Damir says:

    I’ve tried many beautiful perfumes recently: NVC Pichola, Rubini’s Fundamental, Canoe’s Skive, Aftelier’s Oud Luban are some of them. I’m very curious about the newest En Voyage perfume that will be launched next month – July, 6. I see so many interesting perfumes in your bag, a gorgeous selection of samples. Following as usual: RSS, WordPress, mail, FB, twitter.

  34. Laurels says:

    I follow with Bloglovin. I recently got a very reasonably priced decant of Robert Piguet Futur from MyPerfumeSamples, largely thanks to your review (I think at OT), and I loved it. It is indeed wonderfully green, but the underlying florals read warm to me, which makes it much more wearable for me than, say, Chanel No.19. Thanks for the recommendation, and all your giveaways! xx

  35. Elizabeth says:

    I recently sampled Russian Tea by Masque and now I want a bottle or two)))
    I follow by email. Thank you for the opportunity.

    That sample pack looks amazing! I discovered you via EauMG and will now be following you via email. I recently got a bunch of the Chanel Exclusifs and have been sampling away, loving some and scrubbing a few – always having fun and sniffing away! Thanks so much for your wonderful reviews and perfume updates.

  40. Nemo says:

    Thank you so much! I haven’t been sniffing new perfumes as much recently but I recently discovered I love Eau d’Orange Vert, which I promptly “borrowed” permanently from my housemate (who didn’t like it much to begin with). I follow by email:)

  41. Lubka K. says:

    Thanks for the generous draw offer. (I think I managed to slip in under the wire.)

  43. Lena says:

    Recently, I was lucky enough to receive a sample of Theorema; it just blew me away! I’m not sure what I was expecting, but it had me at hello, instantly attaining ‘go-to’ status. (Oh, and I follow by email). Thanks!
