My daughter has tons of fashion magazines with those glossy high-end perfume samples. Besides their obvious use, a quick, one-use product try, she found that saving them in baggies until ready to give them a whirl helps them last indefinitely.
I like to put them in dresser drawers, shelves and the under bed storage boxes my bed linens and comforters are in. They're also great for keeping that mustiness away from out-of-season clothing bins and in holiday decoration storage containers.

Tuck several magazine perfume samples throughout numerous pages of old book to remove musty smell. doesn't matter if different fragrances. Works great!
I agree with you on using these samples. I tuck them in my underwear drawers, p.j.'s, gowns, etc. to give them a sweet smell. They are also sent in some of my mail advertisements. I appreciate these freebies.

What to do with perfume pages in magazines? I recently got a few free subscriptions to magazines and I noticed that there are a lot of perfume ads where you open up the flap and can smell it.
Before recycling the magazine, take the scents out that you like and place them in clothing drawers for a nice scent! I also do this with those perfume swab-papers you get that you can rub on your wrist. :)

Thanks for sharing this! What a great reminder because I used to do this and have fallen in the past couple of years from this habit. Back to doing it now :-) (11/30/2009)
I agree with you this is a great idea. This keeps mine and my husband's underwear smelling good.
Glad the magazine ads pass them on. (12/09/2009)
