Massive Sample Sept ’16


Post by Portia


Hey There APJ!

I have a bunch of samples that I have tried, written about and loved or not. Some are carded manufacturers samples, shop bought decants, gifted decants etc. 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. There are .7ml all the way up to 3ml. So what better way to share the love than a FABULOUS GIVEAWAY!!

    One fragrance on my wish list is something I wore for the first time the other day, via an Osswald sample: Hesperys by Phaedon. Light and citrusy with a hint of musk. I was surprised to see it categorized as a “masculine,” because it definitely seems unisex to me.

    I recently smelt for the first time L’Orpheline, and I just can’t get it out of my head! Every time I’m in the city I pop into myer and spray it all over my clothes and on a number of cards to bring the scent home with me (the SAs probably think I’m a bit of a weirdo by now, but I gotta get my fix!!) 🙂
