Perfume Samples & Minis

I did a post way back in October 2012 entitled Perfume Samples where I was going to use up my samples. It never happened and my collection has grown. My pal Julie beats me hands down though with 79 vials and 33 minis! My tally is 73 vials with 17 minis! A lot of mine have come from The Perfume Society Discovery Boxes.

Are you a perfume samples hoarder?

*pr samples


  1. I totally am a hoarder and I always keep them in my handbag and desk drawer at work, just incase I need them x

    1. I've got them everywhere too! Loads in the desk drawer too x

  2. Good luck using up your hoard, you have some great choices. I have just about managed to use up my perfume samples as I take them to work with me and also on holiday and weekends away. Now I just have to work through my full size perfumes. I haven't counted them yet as I have so many and dread to know how much they have cost me.

    1. Thanks! I carry several (6+) in my make up bag at any one time. Ditto re full size bottles! scary!
