The Best Places To Get Free Perfume Samples

Stores Like Debenhams

Most stores that sell perfumes would be willing to let you try a new perfume before you commit to buying it. This is particularly true when you look at department stores with perfume and makeup counters. These stores will often have small sample vials or scented cards available for the most popular scents or open bottles that you can test in the store. For these samples, you will not have to go to a high-end retailer.

The local discount drugstore should have a few tester bottles that you can try. However, it is important to note that the higher the price of the perfume the rarer an open bottle that you can try out will be.

In Magazines

One of the most popular sources of perfume samples is a free magazine sample. These samples are generally part of full page adverts with a scent strip. Almost all magazines targeted towards women will have a perfume sample occasionally. However, the magazines which are more devoted to fashion are more likely to have these samples, particularly newer scents.

A Gift With A Purchase

It is possible to receive a free perfume sample as a gift when you make a purchase at certain stores. This will allow you to test the scents of other perfume products from the same line or manufacturer as your purchase. Promotions such as this are generally seen around the holiday season and other gift giving times like Valentines Day.

Online Samples

Free samples are something that a lot of people are always on the lookout for. Many of these people are quick to share their free finds with others online. There are a number of websites that you can visit which list free samples, like WOW FreeStuff who offer 100's of perfume samples.

You should also consider visiting your favourite perfume makers website to see if they are offering samples. Many perfume makers will offer free samples on their website or provide a mailing list which will tell you about any future offers.

If you are going to be getting a sample online, you need to ensure that the website is one that you trust with your contact information. If you are getting a sample directly from the maker it is usually safe. However, there are many third-party websites that simply want to get your email address onto their mailing lists. You need to watch out for websites that ask for credit card details or make you sign up to other services to get your free perfume sample.

Many of these websites will entice you with offers of high-value gift cards or a product from an expensive brand name. However, the time, effort and costs will generally not be worth the free sample that you are trying to get.

Testing A Sample Product

When you get your sample product, you need to test it on your body and not simply sniff the card or spray it into the air. There is a difference in your body chemistry which could make the perfume
smell different on you compared to someone else. The warmth of your body will also affect the strength of the scent compared to smelling it directly from the bottle.

Before you buy a perfume, you should try it out for an extended period of time. This will allow you to move past your first impressions of the perfume. You will also be able to determine if the scent holds up for the entire day or evening.

You should also not overdo your sampling. If you have been spraying samples on your wrist for half an hour, you will be left with a mixture of the scents. You may find yourself buying a perfume that does not suit you because you enjoyed its smell when it was combined with others.

Uses For Extra Samples

When you get too many free samples, you might not know what to do with all of them. There are a number of other uses that you should consider. The first is to use the sample to perfume your dresser drawers. You could also arrange them into an inexpensive gift.

If you have a guest room, you can place the samples there for people to use. You could also pass them along to your friends to use. You could also donate the samples to a shelter along with a number of other personal care items.
