Sample Sunday - Perfume!

Over the past few weeks I have been delving into my stash of sample perfumes to see if I can find one or two that take my fancy.  I am a subscriber to The Fragrance Club Discovery Box and the one good thing about it is that I am sent samples of fragrances I might not perhaps think to try.  

Having also been to one or two events and been lucky enough to receive some more samples and  as spring has arrived and summer will soon be upon us, I have found this is a really good opportunity to try out and test some of those sample perfumes.

So the ones I have tried are:

Sample perfume

Elie Saab - L'eau Couture.  This is the only sample which comes in a cute little box and offers the following description "From the house of Elie Saab comes a new deliciously addictive, soft, almondy floral fragrance. Created to offer a taste of summer, the scent kicks off with a citrusy top that sparkles with zest which leads into a couture-inspired heart topped off with an addictive base".  

This scent I also really like, it is a light scent which is perfect for spring and can be worn either during the day or at night for me.

Sample perfume

GUERLAIN - La Petite Robe Noire Couture.  It is described as "The third fragrance to join the hugely successful La Petite Robe Noire collection by Guerlain. The range is inspired by the little black dress, a must have for any fashionista wardrobe. La Petite Robe Noire Couture is a fruity floral vivacious scent fit for the red carpet, perfect for when a splash of luxury is needed!".  

I am indifferent about the scent of this, it is nice, but I wouldn't purchase a full sized bottle, I am happy enough to use the sample.

Sample perfume

Loewe Quizas Quizas Quizas pasion which is a Spanish brand that has just come to the UK and is said to be inspired by The Art of Tango - The deep red juice bursts with fruits for a romantic fragrance that leaves a lasting trail wanting those left in its wake wanting more.

I am still on the fence with this scent, it is quite floral and fruity and definitely has a wow factor as soon as it is sprayed but I find it doesn't really last that long once on my skin and I need to reapply it later in the day.  That said, it is a lovely fragrance.

Sample perfume

Givenchy Very Irrésistible is the perfume world's first Aromatic Floral. This fragrance is feminine, energising and timeless. It pays homage to the brand's historic culture and reflects an Irresistible woman. floral notes centre around a plethora of roses. Its central floral harmony is made up of five Rose notes: Daring Peony, Spontaneous Fantasia, Intense Passion Rose, Sensual Emotion Rose and Elegant Centifolia Rose. Following this is the aromatic notes of the fragrance, a harmony of Star Anise with a pinch of Verbena leaves. 

If there was one perfume from this sample I would buy from those I have been trying, this would be it.  I absolutely love it, not a perfume I would ever think of trying but now having tried the sample, it is a hit.

Sample perfume

So those are the perfumes I have been testing.  I have another batch to test over the next few weeks, so look out for that review too.

Have you tried any of these perfumes before? 
Have you got any samples to try?
