Sample GIVEAWAY May 2016


Post by Portia


Hey There APJ!

I have a bunch of samples that I have tried, written about and loved or not. They are lying around in my office and will probably never be looked for again. A couple of them are only half full but others are only 2 spritzes used or brand new, some I have bottles or doubles of. So what better way to share the love than a FABULOUS GIVEAWAY!!

    ONE perfume on my wish list? Only one???? How to decide? That’s why my wish list gets longer because I have too many that I want to sample. Hmmm, I think one of them is Tauer’s Fruitchouli. But, there are many much more expensive houses that I have never sniffed, such as Bond, Creed, Regina Harris, Le Labo, Cardinal, Comme des Garcons, Carthusia, The Vagabond Prince, Papillon, Oriza, Diptyque, Floris, Phaedon, Nasomatto, Parfums de Marly and Xerjoff. I will not live long enough!

  5. RuthF says:

    • Gina Tabasso says:

      I bought a vintage mini. I love Guerlain. I don’t know if mine had gone off, but I HATED it. To me it smelled a little floral but mostly woody with a little plum and whisp of rose in the dry down.
