Recession-Proof Beauty: Free Fragrance Samples

We've already talked about which department stores give the best fragrance samples, but considering how high gas prices are, why leave the house if you don't have to? Fortunately, a few perfume promotions will bring the scents to your mailbox. You don't need to do much — just fill out a form online — and you'll get a goodie in the mail within a few weeks.

For three ways to score a sniff,


You might remember my review of Escada Moon Sparkle. It's a fizzy fruity scent that works well for Summer nights. Request a sample at Escada's site and see whether you like it.

Sarah Jessica Parker's Covet can be tried for free if you fill out a survey.

Finally, you and a friend can each receive a postcard with a sample of Yves Saint Laurent Elle.

Even though you have to watch out for phishing schemes online, all three of these sites are legitimately connected with the fragrance brands. Supplies can run out, of course, but this is a pretty smart way to discover a new scent.

Don't you usually just get a scent card? Those aren't really true to the scent. All of the samples I've gotten in the mail are just the little cards, nothing special.

I usually get my fragrance samples when I order beauty products from Sephora, Macy's or Bloomingdale's. All include a few different scent samples usually (well, you can pick them at Sephora, but Macy's usually throws a few in with your order).
