Warranty

All sales are final, we are a perfume sampling company - letting you try perfume before you invest in a bottle. Unfortunately, we cannot refund any product that you do not like. If you are new to perfume or wanting to break out of wearing the same scent, try our starter sampler packs so that you can find the perfume that works for you.

Description

Perfume should always play with naughty. What is naughty? It's referred to as "skank."  First coined by March at Perfume Posse in January 2006, she refers to it as "Skank is not gracious, or nice, or even fundamentally pretty. The Skank is about sex, and only sex. It's a rump-grinding, head-shaking invitation to a booty call, no matter how politely the scent's been dressed up at the opening."

This is the sex in perfume, and it's been there even back in the days when the hems of dresses never got above the eyelet lace-ups of their Victorian boots.

To read more about what is skank, sex in pefumes, read Tim Girvin's blog where he also talks about this sampler pack (as it used to exist in my other store before we moved here, so the link in that article is misdirected).

Your sampler pack will include a sample of each of the following scents.  Samples are all 1/2ml, but larger sizes are available.

  1. Jean Desprez Bal a Versailles EDT (Retro) - The queen of skanks, there is NOTHING nice about this, and that's a good thing.
  2. Miller Harris L'air de Rien - Scary Skank!  Like scary spice, but a lot more fun. 
  3. Papillon Salome - this goes so far beyond bad girl, it's scary.  And amazing.
  4. Narciso Rodriguez For Her EDT - honey flower, solar musk, orange blossom, osmanthus, amberlyn, vanilla, tactile musk, tactile woods, vetiver.
  5. Rochas Femme PDT (Vintage) - Made during The Depression, when women were hanging on to their sensuality by their fingernails, it is skanky perfection.
  6. Serge Lutens Musc Koublai Khan - Animalic musky skank.
  7. Worth Courtesan - Tropical skank, amazingly so!

    I think the Ava Gardner picture is a better descriptor than 'skank'

    I can't imagine rating any sample set below a 4-star because I would never want to discourage experimentation in such a subjective subject. This set was super interesting and I was really intrigued by the descriptions. Some of them are really complex and earthy, musky, really enticed my imagination. Some others were to me too much. To each his nose. I think the Ava Gardner picture is a good match to this set. There is intention here, there's pretty direct communication. They set an agenda, and an atmosphere.

    An Interesting Scent Adventure for Anyone, Naughty or Nice

    I had such fun testing the various scents in this sampler, both on myself, and for my significant other (who, alas, might as well not have a nose at all--every once in a while, something smells "nice"). For me, it came down to a draw between Miller Harris L'air de Rien and Penhaligon's Amaranthine. I liked most of the others as well, but some didn't have much lasting power on me (Jicky, Bal a Versailles, Worth Coutesan) and others were quite similar to scents I already own. Rochas Femme smelled like a scarf you might find in a vintage pocketbook--not unpleasant, but very old fashioned. Montale Oud Cuir d'Arabie smelled far too much like a combination of horses, horse sweat, and old leather for me to consider wearing. It's a very familiar, again not unpleasant, smell, but most folks take showers after a long ride, precisely so they won't smell like that! The Party in Manhattan gave me a headache; to me, it actually did smell like someone else's used underwear, so off it came after about an hour. All in all, this is one of the most entertaining, informative samplers I've purchased. Who knew what other people find sexy? Give it a try. (It would make a great gift for a friend who is just starting his or her perfume explorations.)
