Perfume Samples

I'm going to do a perfume sample challenge, a bit like the one I'm doing for sachets and trial sizes in skincare and bodycare.  You can read my latest one here.


I've picked out a selection of samples to use over the coming few weeks (or until they are finished) and then I'll let you know my thoughts on them and whether I'd buy them full size before trying out more of my stash!


To start me off I've picked:-

Acqua di Parma Iris Noble Sublime EDP 5ml roll on - this featured in my September Favourites.

Bond No 9 Central Park West EDP 1.7ml - I got this from What's in my Handbag recently and also love it!

Tom Ford Black Orchid EDP 1.5ml

Oh Lola! Marc Jacobs EDP 1.5ml

Lolita Lempicka L'Eau en Blanc EDP 0.8ml

Have you used any of these scents before?

  4. I need to do this too! I have a ton of tiny perfume samples. I find that just by keeping one in my purse helps using them up pretty quickly!
    I've used Oh Lola! It's nice :)

  5. Good idea! I recently posted a picture of my mini collection of perfume samples on Instagram, wondering where on earth they had all come from. I've ended up putting one or two in each of my bags so that they should (eventually) get used up =)

  7. I love love love Tom Ford Black Orchid! I ind that it is a rather heavy scent though, good for the autumn weather. It smells different on everyone, I highly recommend! I will say that it's more musky than fresh so those who love light and fresh scents may not like it as much.

    1. I've had a bottle before when it first launched and I loved it - one I may have to buy again. Thanks for the follow - I'm unable to follow back as I can't find your GFC button x

  8. I try to take my samples out with me during the day. They're small & you normally only get a couple of squirts of of them. I need to try & use more up. I have a stash too.
    I have tried the Oh Lola one & its really nice. My mum has a bottle & it lasts for ages on here I can smell it all day.
