Back by popular demand, we will be hosting our fourth fragrance swap on August 30, 2017 at our boutique on SE Division Street. We are so happy that these swaps have been embraced by the fragrance community and we couldn't be more excited to provide a venue for these events. If the last three events are any indication, this should be even bigger and better than the last swap.
This is a free event open to anyone who is interested in participating. In order to attend you must sign up below and you must bring at least one fragrance to swap. All fragrances must adhere to the guidelines below. Please make sure to read all of the rules before signing up. Fragrances that do not adhere to our guidelines are expressly prohibited.
First and foremost, this is a functionally independent event hosted by Fumerie Parfumerie. The event will be taking place at Fumerie Parfumerie's boutique on SE Division Street and moderated by Tracy Tsefalas and André Gooren. One of our goals is to serve as a meeting place for fragrance enthusiasts and the boutique will be functioning as a venue for this event to that end.
Participants must sign up below in order to attend. Each participant will have a designated space either on the counter or on one of our display tables. Each space will be clearly marked and delineated. Spaces on the counter measure 12" wide × 18" deep and can accommodate up to about twenty fragrances. We will also have a table set up with larger spaces measuring 20" wide × 25" deep for participants who wish to bring more fragrances. When signing up, along with your name and email address, please indicate if you will require one of the larger spaces. Please note that there are only three of these larger spaces available and spaces will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. This time around we will be requiring a complete list of all the fragrances you plan to bring. We realize that this may take a bit of time to sort out, so feel free to sign up and send us your lists at a later date. We are asking that attendees please provide us with a list of fragrances no later than three days before the event. Due to the nature of the event, if you find out that you will be unable to attend after registering, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can plan accordingly.
After we receive your registration, you will be assigned a space. On the night of the event, participants will bring their fragrances to Fumerie and set their fragrances out in the space bearing their name. In addition to your name, each space will include a complete list of your fragrances available for swap. After everyone is set up, participants will be able to explore all of the fragrances available for swap. This time around, you will have the opportunity to write your name next to any fragrances that you are interested in swapping for. It is our hope that this will ultimately make the event proceed much more smoothly. After everyone has been afforded an opportunity to explore all of the available fragrances, we will reconvene and begin the event.
Fumerie staff will then proceed lot-by-lot, announcing each fragrance. If you are interested in a fragrance, you will have the opportunity to propose a swap.
In order for a swap to occur, both parties must consent to the trade. You are under no obligation to agree to a swap. If nothing at the event interests you, you are free to leave without swapping. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us.
