    Shiny New Givaudan Survey Thread (NO REFERRALS PLEASE) 5th Aug 12 at 8:57 AM
    This is a continuation of violetta's thread here http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=2432387&page=51

    I have started a new thread as the link in the old OP is dead and quite a few people are asking how to join.

    If you would like to apply to be a part of the panel then you need to email argenteuil.panelconsumer@givaudan.com and ask to join the survey panel.

    A big paper survey is sent to you on joining and after every year of membership that you have to fill in with your preferences and if your lucky you just may get a large bottle of perfume every year as a thank you for being a part of the panel. Although last years perfume presents seemed a bit hit and miss and old members will remember

    The surveys are usually about washing powders, fabric softners, perfumes etc and you get sent a £5 Capital Bonds Voucher for every 5 surveys completed.

    When we all receive the perfume we scan all through this thread to find out what perfume we have received so I will put the list here:
    ARR = L'Air Ricci
    AGM = Angel Thierry Mugler
    ANG = Angelique Noire - Guerlain
    ATL = Attraction Lancôme
    AZPT = Azzaro Pink Tonic

    BDB = B de Boucheron

    CAP = Candy Prada
    CEB = Cerruti 1881 Bella Notte of CerrutiCER = Cerrutti 1881
    CPF = Prada Candy Florale of Prada

    EBA - Eau de Belle by Azzarro
    ECA = Eau de Cartier
    EDS = Eau Du Soir by Sisley
    EMG = Escada Marine Groove
    EMH : eau des merveilles Hermès
    ESA = Emporio She Armani

    FAF = Façonnable Femme
    FCA = F!!rie from Van Cleef & Arpels
    FEM = Femme Rochas
    FSA = Feerie Spring Blossom by Van Cleef and Arpels

    GAT = Aqua Allegoria Tiar! Mimosa ? Guerlain
    GGB = Gucci Guilty Black
    GGY = Gucci Guilty

    HBW = Hugo Boss Woman

    IDIP = Infusion d'Iris - Prada
    ING = Instant de Guerlain

    JAD = J'adore de Dior

    LIP = Love In Paris - Nina Ricci
    LHS = Hypnôse Senses - Lancôme
    LMJ = Lola Marc Jacobs
    LOC = Love Chloe

    MAK = Madly Kenzo
    MDC = Miss Dior Ch!rie
    MDB = Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet of Dior
    MML = Marry Me Lanvin
    MIG = My Insolence Guerlain
    MSE = Moon sparkle d'escada

    NRH = Narciso Rodriguez for Her

    ONF = Calvin Klein Obsession Night feminine
    OP = Opium
    OVH = Orange Verte Hermès

    PSR = Paul Smith Rose
    PEA = l'Eau Ambr!e - Prada

    R1DG = Rose the One Dolce & Gabanna
    RBC = Roberto Cavalli
    RER = Reflets D'Eau de Rochas

    I think mine came by courier. I've just completed the survey for the trial.
  • Charlotte49
    Not sure, but it came in a massive box (considering the size of the samples).

    Has everyone has their survey email for the shampoo and conditioner? I received the samples, however I didn't get any introductory email, so I'm wondering if I've been missed off somewhere.

    Two post trial emails were sent. The 2nd one is the correct one. Just completed mine.

    Did anyone else receive a email this week from Givaudan and when they clicked on the link it did not work, I tried several times and did not manage to get the survey.

    I've not had any further emails from them since the trial questionnaire, but received another £5 capital bond voucher.

    Me too! I was very happy to receive it too, especially at this time of the year!

    I've hardly heard anything from them this year though.

    Recieved an email from them today about a shampoo/conditioner trial. Seems they'll be sending out 2 sample lots in the new year. I'm all signed up!

    It's my first testing with this company, so I'll see how I get on.
    Because it's fun to have money!

    I received that email too, I hope I get picked again.
  • JAN43DAW
    They also sent me that email then about half an hour after I replied and sent it back I got another one saying that they had missed some of the questions off it and would I do it again.

    I also had an email from them yesterday - twice! The first one was wrong. Fingers crossed I'll get picked this time!

    Has anyone else had a really quiet year? I've only had two trials and not many surveys.

    Luckily I have had a steady stream throughout the year

    I think more panelists have been recruited in the last couple of years hence less frequency of trials & surveys...

    That said - I had the latest shampoo & conditioner emails too

    So it's wait & see time now to see if I get selected

    I've also had a quiet year from them. It seemed to slow down after the perfume fiasco earlier in the year! Saying that though, I did receive yesterdays survey, so fingers crossed it's going to pick up next year? Hope so - the loss of the food diary vouchers will be sorely missed in this household!
