We do not accept returns of perfumes, simply because perfumes can't be resold once they've been opened and used. We encourage you to order samples before purchasing full bottles of perfume. And here's the good news — with every sample purchased, we'll send you a coupon code that allows you to redeem the cost of the sample and sample shipping if you buy a full bottle of the fragrance you tried (in other words, you get $10 off).

Please contact orders@ministryofscent.com if you have a question or issue related to your order or shipping.

Sample Orders

Samples are designed to help you evaluate scents you might want to later purchase as a full bottle. You may order one sample per fragrance, up to 15 total in a single order. Samples are non-refundable.

For sample orders, please check your packing slip for a special code that will allow you to redeem the price of samples and sample shipping when purchase full bottles of the scents you sample ($10 off full bottles).

Complimentary Samples

We provide complimentary samples with $75+ full bottle purchases. You may request up to 3 samples with any qualifying order. Please use the Order Note section on the Shopping Cart overlay to let us know which complimentary samples you would like. We'll try to provide the scents you've requested, but substitutions may occur if items are out of stock.

absolute magic in a bottle

I have so much love and appreciation for this perfume. Thank you, Mauricio!

One of the best perfumes of all time

Ofrenda invokes a sense of awe and wonderment for me. It's got this fresh, but deep and magical earthiness in a way no other perfume that I have tried has ever matched. It's otherworldly, ethereal. It's more full of life than anything else I can think of, it reminds me of all there is left to explore and experience in life. Completely stunning everytime I wear it. I had to have a full bottle, as well as another Herbcraft masterpiece, Memoria. Just wow on these two. I'm always sampling so many fragrances, I have a ridiculous amount of samples I'm rotating thru, but tonight I needed some Ofrenda in my life, and I'm just basking in whatever sorcery Mauricio Garcia cooked up for this brew, and I am off somewhere like a fairy in a forest. I don't know if it would be everyone's cup of tea, but also I don't know how anyone couldn't appreciate it. There's nothing artificial seeming about it, but yet it's on a different playing field than essential oil blends, and nothing like mainstream or any other niche brand I've tried. I'd love to know how Mauricio does what he does, if you need an apprentice, sign me up!

Not Particularly Wearable..

I wanted so terribly to like this. The notes and the mythology behind this fragrance all speak to me! However, the sample of Ofrenda a received did not agree with my nose at all. If I could sum up my dislike of it in one sentence: It smells like a doctors office. There is just this one deeply offputting note, it smells medicinal and bitter and musty like antiseptic spray. This fragrance would be so wonderful without that note, once it's dissipated I get something very nice- slightly sweet, earthy with the faintest whiff spice.

Oh, I want to like this 😭
