Vinci & Rakos Parfum Sample Program 
Parfum Sample Website

A great way to experience over 200 beautiful Vinci & Rakos Parfums.  Each sample is a full-bodied, Parfum with no added alcohol. $25.00 for seven (7) Parfums of your choice, packaged in a drawstring organza bag.

Purchase price $25.00  *  Original Price $45.00

The Parfums have been arranged two ways to help in the selection of a new scent: Alphabetically and By Predominate Notes & Categories. The Parfum categories and descriptions were based on years of working and listening to the comments, preferences and interpretations of the clients. The sense of smell is very subjective, so no one will ever describe an aroma the same way, agree which category would apply or which notes are in a blend. The descriptions were written with these ideas and thoughts in mind, so many of the Parfums are listed in more than one category, and reflect the views of the clients. If pertinent, a reference to a fragrance type on the market is indicated.
