Fragrance samples are very popular amongst perfumistas, you can guess why. So I am glad to be able to report that Keiko Mecheri parfums have set up a brand new sampling program through their recently-launched website.
You have three main options: 1) you can order samples of all 30 fragrances from the collection for $48. They come in "a large coffer with blotter cards for smelling the scents. This is accompanied by a beautiful bound booklet explaining each scent and the philosophy of Keiko Mecheri."...
I have a copy of the booklet and it is indeed very nice, with a luxurious feel to it. There are many pictures and the paper is thick.
2) You can also try the new trio of Loukhoum perfumes for $10.
3) You can purchase any set of 5 fragrances that will come in 1.2 ml mini-sprays for a shipping and handling charge of $8.
The prices for the two first options include the shipping and handling fees.
Finally, if you order a full-sized perfume from the website, you will get 5 free samples that you can choose by yourself.
