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.

Do you use fragrance samples from magazines or do you ignore them? I stopped using perfume many moons ago, but use these samples in my closet. I have a canvas shoe holder and clip the sample card on a hanger near the shoes. The door stays open so when I walk by a get a quick, pleasant whiff. Also, I air out just-worn shoes outside. I'll leave them outside for awhile so they can get some fresh air before going back in the closet.

I love lightly scented lingerie and socks so I will pull out the nice perfume scented paper samples in magazines and inserts mailed to me to fold into my lingerie drawers! I even add softener sheets or soap wrappers sometimes!
I use the perfume samples that come in magazines at bedtime. This way you can safely "try" it out, & if you don't like it it washes off in the morning. Also because by bedtime my perfume has usually worn off, so I still "hopefully" smell good.
