get it on skin
Our perfume sample program
We're on a mission to bring independent fragrances into your wardrobe — the wild, weird and wonderful. The best way to learn what you love is to try scents on skin. Here's how:
1. Order $5 samples from our site (shipping is just $5).
2. Redeem the price of samples & shipping when you purchase full bottles of the scents you tried.
3. Wear your new fragrances with abandon.

Living with Scents
The focus of the Living with Scents exhibit is on objects — creative and artful interfaces to deliver scents, from the hedonic to the functional. An unprecedented collection of useful, meaningful and beautiful olfactory objects to be discovered through the eyes and the nose. Exhibition runs through June 5, 2022. We recommend.

The online store and service is superb... Shipping was amazingly fast and the perfumes came nicely protected, but also beautifully presented.... I'm incredibly satisfied with my experience, I'll be doing my perfume shopping here.
Tigerlily is THE place for all fragrance enthusiasts. If you want a signature scent unlike anybody else's, you're sure to find thoughtful, top quality options here. Great customer service and wonderful energy. Would recommend!
I can think of no better place to purchase and try niche perfumes in all of San Francisco. Make that anywhere for that matter... Exemplary in all areas. From keen pricing, extensive catalog and above all excellent customer service and attentiveness...
The best. Knowledgeable, friendly staff. Authentic... Best fragrance shopping experience of my life. Will definitely keep returning. Opposite of everything fake, pretentious, snooty, and off-putting about department store fragrance departments, while maintaining elite products and database of knowledge and suggestions and wise network of sellers.
Indulgent enclave, encompassing a unique cornucopia of personally selected fragrances, captivatingly helpful staff and a wonderful community spirit. Always worth a drop by.
They have an array of diverse niche perfumes you won’t be able to find anywhere else. This place was great, because you can sample some niche fragrances you won’t be able to find anywhere else. 10/10 recommend.
We had just one day in San Francisco and Tigerlily was amongst our top priorities to visit... If I had to describe our time there in a few words it would be "feels like home"... the people in Tigerlily are extremely nice and kind; regarding fragances for me coming from Europe this is paradise I could find lots of treasures from creators within the states.Spain
Tigerlily exceeded my high hopes on every front. The store front is lovely, the displays are creative and thoughtful, the variety of scents... just amazing. The staff generously nerded out with me for a really long time, they really know their stuff!
Had the best experience at Tigerlily today! Was recommended by a friend and was so glad I finally got to check it out. I loved the vibe, the music, the service, and the selection! I loved the fact that there were so many brands that were new to me...
