Who else loves to read fragrance descriptions? Who else wishes they could smell every one of them? Raise your hand with me! 🙂
It’s my pleasure to inform you that we’re happy to send fragrance samples with your order, because sometimes you just have to smell it yourself.
It’s very easy to request samples. When you are placing an order, fill out the comments section with something like this: “I would like to smell Just For You, Alice, and Black Tie. May I have some samples?” When your order is processed, the sample requests are added, and our shipping department takes care of the rest.
Each sample vial will be taped to a sachet card, and the name of the fragrance is handwritten on the card. Remove the stopper from the sample 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 upright again and replace the stopper in the vial.
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. Next, 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, either on the sachet card or in a notebook so you can refer back to your thoughts.
We will send up to 6 fragrance samples with an order.
