Fumerie Fragrance Swap 6

  • Fumerie Parfumerie 3584 Southeast Division Street Portland, OR, 97202 United States (map)

Fumerie Fragrance Swap 6 will take place on Saturday, October 20, 2018 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at our boutique on SE Division Street. For the uninitiated, the idea behind fragrance swaps is very simple: you bring fragrances that you would like to trade and then you trade with other attendees at the event. We do have some rules, but they're pretty straightforward and ultimately intended to make the experience fun and rewarding for everyone.

This event is free and open to anyone who is interested in participating. All you have to do is bring at least one fragrance that adheres to our guidelines. If you haven't had a chance to participate, let me take this opportunity to address a common misconception about these swaps: they are in no way niche-only. Many customers I have spoken with over the past few years have expressed reservations about attending because they feel that their fragrances are not "good enough." Well, let me disabuse everyone of that notion. The whole idea is that if you love something, it doesn't matter if it's a widely-available blockbuster or an ultra-rare limited edition fragrance. You can never predict what will happen or what someone may be looking for. The bottom line is these events are a lot of fun and full of surprises. We invite you to bring whatever you have and see what happens.

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 be assigned a clearly marked and delineated space to display their fragrances. We ask that you submit a complete list of the fragrances that you plan to bring so that we can prepare. 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.

On the night of the event, participants will be directed to their assigned space and given a booklet of color-coded stickers. Participants will be afforded the opportunity to explore all of the available fragrances prior to the swapping portion of the event. During this time, participants will have the will be instructed to indicate their interest in a fragrance by applying their color-coded stickers to the bottles. Once the swapping portion of the event begins, Fumerie staff will proceed lot-by-lot, facilitating fragrance swaps.

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.
