Where To Find Free Perfume Samples in the UK

One of the most popular ways to try out a new perfume is by sampling it before you buy. What's even better than going out and buying a sample is getting a free perfume sample! You don't just get to try out the latest perfumes, but you also get to have a sniff whilst saving some money.

In this article, we're going to cover everything you need to know about finding free perfume samples. From what they are, why you should be using them, and even how to get your hands on some fabulous free samples.

What are Perfume Samples

Perfume samples or fragrance samples are small decants of a selected perfume. These samples come in much smaller sizes than you find the bottle in - anywhere from 1.2ml to 30ml. These smaller sample sizes are offered mainly by online stores and the occasional perfume shop when they carry carded samples.

You can find paid-for perfume samples quite easily, but free perfume samples of select fragrances are quite hard to come by. When you purchase a full-priced fragrance, some shops will throw in free fragrance samples but you usually can't select which ones - it's normally a fragrance that's just been released by the same brand.

Why Use Free Perfume Samples

So why should you use perfume samples - especially free perfume samples? Here are the main reasons people go made for a free sample of a perfume:
  • The biggest reason is the fact they can save a tonne of money when it comes to finding their next favorite eau de pafum or EDT. Free perfume samples save the headache that can come from blind buying bottles. Sure, the notes sound perfect on paper - but how will it react to your skin? will certain notes be more prominent than others? Samples allow you to test out new perfumes on your skin and get a real feel for them.
  • If you get your hands on a slightly bigger sample size of an eau de toilette or eau de parfum, it makes a perfect travel companion. You won't be lugging around a big bottle with you - a simple 5ml or 10 sample is all you need.
  • They're also perfect for special events. You can simply stash one of your free samples in your pocket and carry it around with you to freshen up throughout the day or night.

Where To Find Free Perfume Samples

You can get your hands on free perfume samples through quite a few different methods. You can usually get a very small sample thrown in for free when you purchase a full bottle. You have to shell out for the full bottle first though, which can set you back.

There are also various raffles and prizes to win free samples hosted by sites. This is one of the most common ways of getting hold of free samples, but you have a slim chance of getting your hands on one - there can be loads of other people who are also entered to win the free samples!

You can also find various sites that give away a small sample for review. These can be great - but you often don't have a choice in the perfume you're going to sample and you'll be added to a waitlist.

We do have a great solution to get your hands on some great free samples, which we'll cover in the next section...
