Free perfume samples are a great way to try out new perfumes before you buy them. If you do a little digging you can get enough free perfume samples that you might just never have to pay for perfume again.
I have a drawer full of free perfume samples and I can't remember the last time I've needed to spend money on a bottle of perfume. I always get to try the newest fragrances and I seem to always have a new favorite.
Look below to find a current list of all the free perfume samples that you can request and receive in the mail. You'll also find several other ways to get free perfume samples. You may even have some hiding right under your nose.
Current Free Perfume Samples by Mail
Free perfume samples by mail can come in mainly two different forms. The best perfume sample you can get is a small vial with perfume inside. This will last for quite awhile, giving you many uses. I personally love to take these along when I travel.
The other form of perfume sample you might get is a paper perfume sample. The perfume is infused on a piece of paper that you can simply smell, or get one use out of. After I use these, I like to put them in one of my clothes drawers to make everything smell good.
I've also seen perfume samples as small moist towelettes and even as temporary tattoos.
Here's a list of the current free perfume samples you can get by mail:
Each time a new fragrance sample is available, I'll post it on my free sample page. Check there often for new additions.
Perfume samples are one of the few free samples that are available worldwide, so if you live outside the U.S., request away.
Other Ways to Get Free Perfume Samples by Mail
There are a few other ways that you can get free perfume samples by mail. These leave a little more up to chance, but I've gotten a ton of perfume samples this way.
- Look inside your magazines. You can find free perfume samples in many women's and fashion magazines. If you already receive one of these magazines, make sure that you flip through it and look for free perfume samples. I make sure I request every free magazine I can so I can stock up on the free perfume samples.
- Request a free Ulta catalog. Create an account at the makeup and fragrance store, Ulta, and indicate that you want to receive mailings. Each month you'll receive a free catalog that inside has several free perfume samples.
- Keep your eye on Allure Magazine's monthly freebies. Each month, Allure magazine gives away full-sized makeup, beauty, skincare, and fragrance products. Check the Allure calendar to see if they're giving away free perfume this month. I've gotten a few bottle of free perfume this way.
Go Out and Get Some Free Perfume Samples
Beauty specialty stores like Sephora and Ulta often have a ton of free perfume samples available, that are yours for the taking. Just ask for one and you will receive.
Also visit your local department stores, like Macy's and Nordstrom's, and stop by their fragrance counters. They usually have quite the stash of perfume samples or will sometimes pour a fragrance into a vial for you.
