The perfume industry is huge and continues to grow. One of the great things about buying a new fragrance is the samples that are available to try before you buy.
We’ve all done it, purchased a perfume because it smells nice on someone else or the celebrity endorser behind the bottle is one of our favourite actors.
We are still very much influenced by our purchases when it comes to fragrances. There are lots of places where they either offer free samples or samples at a small cost so that you can try a fragrance before you commit to buying the bottle.
A wonderful idea that saves you money on buying a perfume that you potentially may never wear. Everyone’s skin is different so each fragrance will smell unique on your skin.
Many a time we have friends, family or perhaps even strangers who will comment on our chosen fragrance. They like the scent of it and may go as far as buying the bottle themselves, only to find it doesn’t smell the same on their skin.
Another expensive bottle of celebrity perfume sits in the wardrobe or on the dressing table. When I was younger, I loved going into the perfume stores with my late mum to get a collection of perfume samples. It was a cheap way of having a fragrance every day.
Perfume samples nowadays can be used for so many ideas.
Are you getting married?
Have you ever considered purchasing a selection of perfume samples to give to your guests? They’ll love this idea.
Using perfume samples as wedding favours has become very popular over the last few years and doesn’t have to cost a fortune either.
A great way to say thank you to your wedding guests for attending your special day is by giving them a selection of perfume/aftershave samples at the table.

Decorative bags and pouches can be bought online from places such as eBay to make the samples look more elegant as a gift.
There are some pretty drawstring pouches available in a range of colours.
An extra gift
Another idea for using perfume samples is to add a small gift to a birthday or Christmas present. Particularly if you find out what fragrance the person likes such as floral, woody, citrus, oriental etc.
You could then choose those fragrance notes as an extra gift to pop inside their gift.
Be creative with your samples
If you are a user of the tumble dryer during the winter months and usually use scented sheets, why not create your own?
Add several drops of perfume onto a damp handkerchief and pop it in the dryer. Your wet clothes will come out smelling fresh, clean, scented and dry.
