Magazine Perfume Samples, Just a Fragrance Idea!

24 Aug


Catching up on my reading on the many Style and Design magazines yesterday; I don’t know why this suddenly became a visual to me!

Did you know there are at least four to six perfume samples in a magazine?

Hoping that you love the ad, bottle, style and pull the tab to smell! If you love it, you’ll buy it!

Well I’ve tried about four (J’Adore, Chloe, Modern Muse and Daisy).  I’m loving Daisy by Marc Jacobs !  I love gardenia, so I instantly picked up the fragrance of them.  By lifting up the tab and allowing the scent to capture my attention with no pressure, I can make an honest decision on the fragrance.  Which has violet leaves, ruby red grapefruit, gardenia, violet petals, jasmine petals, musk, vanilla and white woods.

So I tore gently the ad with the sample and placed in my bag, as a reminder to go to the mall.  Forgetting about it, I was receiving a lot of compliments while waiting on line to pay for an item at the drugstore (my bag was open).

“What are you wearing, it smells nice?” The fragrance was softly lingering from my bag!

So I got really great reviews and a free bag freshener !  Now I’m not saying if you put a sample in your bag; wait to get feedback!!!! I just reminding that the perfume ad samples are there for you to use to make a decision for purchasing and other ways too! 🙂

  • Place in your lingerie dresser draw.
  • Place in your car under the seat!
  • Attach to your air filter to carry the scent throughout the house

Only if you really like it!!!!!!!!  Let me know, if you have ever selected a fragrance, simply by testing the sample in a magazine, which one and did you buy it?

By the way, I did buy Daisy by Marc Jacobs and I’m very pleased!!!!!  See, the magazine perfume sample did exactly what it was supposed to do!  It smells absolutely wonderful!  There are other fragrances under the Marc Jacobs entourage, so when you get a chance; test them out when you are exploring the samples you’ve collected!   Some how this ended up being a review on Daisy!!!   Have fun!
