Online Perfume Samples

Retailers, cosmetics companies, and fragrance companies all know the importance of samples. Again, they know you need to be sure that their perfume works with your body chemistry. Even online perfume shops will take the financial risk of sending out absolutely free perfume samples as a gift with purchase.

The best part is that you are a fragrance junkie. You need to have new scents and are sure to buy frequently. This is where a little planning and anticipation will play their role. If you know ahead of time the up-coming scents you want, you are well prepared.

What happens when you purchase perfume online you are often prompted to select fragrance or cologne samples. It’s as easy as choosing new scents as a free gift while you are buying your other cosmetics and scents. That’s a win-win deal.


Read carefully as different online and bricks and mortars retailers will have different rules about what kinds of gifts they give with a purchase. Some require a minimum purchase. Others will provide perfume as a free gift only with beauty product purchases (not for buying clothing). The great news is that even the big retailers will give out free perfume including Macy’s, Nordstrom, Sephora, and Ulta.

You can also get perfume free samples from sites like FreeStuff Baby, who offer all of the latest UK free stuff, freebies and much more.

Fragrance Manufacturers

Perfume manufacturers know the secret of selling is to let their products speak for themselves. Sign up with them for free samples. If the perfume works well with your body chemistry, then you are sold. It is as easy and simple as getting onto your favourite perfume company mailing lists. Again, stay aware of when new scents are coming to market from your favourite companies. That will let you sign up in anticipation.

Many companies limit the number of samples, so it requires some tenacity and patience to get onto the list of the hottest perfume makers’ lists. Timing can be everything with them too. For instance, Marc Jacobs, Burberry, Hermes, and Dolce and Gabbana require good timing to get on their list to get a perfume.

Motivation Moves Mountains

Instead of waiting on the perfume companies to send you perfume according to their rules, be proactive. Contact their customer service offices and simply request some free samples. They might say no. Be polite and you may get more help from them. Keep in mind, some may have their boss watching over them, and will not allow them to give out samples unless in their bigger “official ” promotions. They could say yes or no.

Some websites specialize in giving out free samples. They do the hard work for you by locating giveaways on the manufacturers’ various websites, on social media, among other places. Let them send you an email to get the samples. It will not and should not require any financial information, such as credit card details. So, if they ask for it, skip that “free” company.

Another great way to find new scents freely is by visiting cosmetics departments at department stores, or speciality stores. Use their samples to see how it works with your skin. Some of the time, stores will allow you to have a small sample of their perfume. They may let you fill your own small sample vial. Most will probably not do this, so do not expect it. You want to build a good relationship and rapport with the cosmetics people. That way, they will be more than willing to give
