|Did you know that it is really simple to request small fragrance samples every time you place an order? The picture to the right shows an example order with a fragrance request. Fill out the comments section with something like this. “I would like to smell Starfruit, Soothing Chamomile and Summer Melon. May I have some samples?” When our order department processes your order, they add your sample request to the order!
Each sample vial is taped to a sachet card and the name of the fragrance is handwritten on the card. After you receive your order, remove the stopper from the vial and place the sachet card over the opening of the vial. Turn the vial upside down and allow the fragrance to soak into the card. Turn over again and replace the stopper. Wave the card toward your face in a fanning motion to smell. Repeat again in 10 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour and 24 hours. This allows you to smell the fragrance at the various stages of aging. At the beginning, you will smell the top notes that mellow out quickly and as time progresses, the middle notes will become more noticeable. Eventually, the base notes will be easier to define.
Make sure to write notes of your impression of the fragrance oil. These notes will help you if chaos strikes and then you can’t remember what the fragrance smelled like. I’ve been there and done that!
Doesn’t this sound so easy? Feel free to request samples of any fragrance next time you place an order.
