  • Jean Paul (perfumes and aftershaves etc) sent the two samples I had asked for (only small maybe one or two uses)

    I think I may go and buy the "le male" one - but I dont think much of the "fleur du male" (just as a mini review :D)

    All I can say is merci beaucoup !

  • 3M, Mitsubishi Pens and Krispy Kreme gave me some stuff :)

    Kudos to them, especially Mitsubishi Pens - I'm going to be buying Mitsubishi pens from now on because they're actually superb quality and my handwriting is much neater!

    Including: Lush, Lacoste, Hugo, Joop. To name some. Will post responses :D

    I emailed lush to see if they felt they could donate anything to be used as a prize for my charity event...

    They said no but suggested I either wrote to the head office or visited my local shop where it is the managers descretion! :T

  • I'm a photography student and I emailed Ilford a couple of days ago to say how great I think their products are and to ask if there was an 'promotional' material they would be able to send me and I've had an email back today from a lovely lady saying she's had a rummage in the cupboards and she's sending me some films she has found and a promotional pack of high quality inkjet paper. So generous!!
  • How nice of Ilford to support a photography student! I am an art student myself and I have e-mailed various stationary/art companies to ask if they could send me some samples to see me into my AS Level courses. Quite a few have replied - kudos to them and I they shall have my regular custom from now on :)
