We recently discovered that The house of Caron offers a very convenient perfume sampling program for those who cannot make it to their boutiques in New York City or Paris or prefer to sample at leisure at home. You can order any number of samples you wish for $5 each. They come packaged in adorable little individual cardboard boxes stamped with Caron's trademark gold dots and reading Caron Paris. As I ordered, amongst others, a sample of Lady Caron (a stupendous tuberose-gardenia scent by André Fraysse, review forthcoming), they also sent a lovely luxury miniature booklet telling the story of this special perfume. It is a collector's item.
Just call (212) 319-4888 to order the samples of your choice.
