I love the feeling I get from wearing a perfume that smells wonderful on me, but don't appreciate the expense and disappointment when a scent doesn't compliment my body chemistry just right.
I'm a big Sephora shopper and have enrolled in their Beauty Insider program to earn points for freebies. In addition to earning free beauty products, they also automatically give 3 free samples with each order. They also offer coupon codes for online customers for special discounts and other freebies. This past year, I earned a free bronzer and moisturizer (I'm saving my points now to earn a higher tier product in the future.) through the Beauty Insider program.
With their coupon codes, I received FREE 2 silvery purses filled with 10 beauty samples each. (I shared my extra with a friend), Bare Minerals sample and a 10 piece men's product sampler. For my birthday, I received FREE 3 tubes of lipgloss. My husband and I now have more perfume/cologne than either of us can use in a year's time, all for free.
We've also been able to try some expensive beauty products at no cost. With all the freebies, I've had to buy quite a bit less in the makeup/beauty dept. = SAVING $!
Another way I like to save is by removing the perfume/cologne samples from magazines. My husband and I use them quite frequently trying out new scents. It provides a day's application and they're FREE! They're also great to take on the go or when I travel so I don't have to worry about my perfume leaking on my belongings.

I don't buy anything from Sephora (two $$$ for me) - but I DO enjoy the samples they give out to their membership program! I get coupons for those samples via their email list. YOu don't have to buy anything!
If you have a Sephora store near you, they will give samples of perfumes if you ask. They actually have these little spray vials to fill with whatever you ask for. Both my husband and I have gotten samples and found some we hated wearing and some we loved.

I looked into this offer and see it is only for US residents. Us Canadians miss out on some of those super deals! (12/13/2006)
