A Quick mini Guerlain giveaway!

angelinaPerfume people won’t have failed to notice that Guerlain has just launched its first new scent ( and thereby hangs a debate) since 2012. Mon Guerlain is fronted by the unfairly beautiful Angelina Jolie, and I reviewed it here.

monguerlainsample

I have an unused sample of Mon Guerlain ready to give to you .  I used up all of my first one and haven’t touched this one at all. It’s only a little giveaway, but if you have had trouble getting hold of a sample, just leave a comment below or on FB and Twitter to win this one.   If you’re not already following me on social media, please do  join my little insta-twitter-book-lovin’ ramblings!

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Bloglovin.

Closing date is two days from now, so midnight on the 8th March. Please don’t enter if you live outside the UK as I won’t be able to post this to you.

A Big Giveaway to Celebrate Four Years of Blogging

 

violeteyes

Dearest readers,  it’s time I gave something back to you for your loyalty and readership since January 2013 when the whole thing began as a little WordPress blog with a lilac background. Incidentally, before I go on, I’d like to apologise if your comments have gone unmoderated or unanswered recently. There’s a glitch in the sytem which means I have to approve even my own comments.  I’m on top of it now, though.

Back on topic- Yes, as promised, it’s time for the  IScentYouADay giveaway, now that we are four- that’s the Royal “we”, in case you were wondering. Four years is giddy stuff!

There are four prizes up for grabs- one for each year of the blog.  Due to postal regulations, I’m afraid this is only open to the UK and Northern Ireland.

So here’s what I’m giving away:

Library of Fragrance Nutmeg Ice Cream.

With warm almondy notes, this reminded me of Bakewell Tart, warm nutmegand crisp and straight from the oven. It’s making me long for that marzipan covered Christmas Cake my mother made me for Christmas (I’m embarrassed to tell you how quickly it disappeared at my hand).  Library of Fragrance Nutmeg Ice Cream smells delicious, and so will you when you wear it. 30ml Cologne.

Perfumer’s Choice- Valerie

valerieThis is a big hitter for fans of YSL Black Opium. There’s coffee, white flowers, vanilla, patchouli and OOOMPH. Guaranteed to last a minimum of six hours, a little goes a long way, making this excellent value.  You can read my review here. 93ml EDP

 

Perfumer’s Choice- Victor

victor1This is a gorgeous masculine scent (although I like it for me as well) with notes of grapefruit and vetiver. This smells like something far more expensive and famous but I’m blowed if I can name it! It’ll come to me at 3 a.m, no doubt. Guaranteed to last a minimum of six hours. 93ml EDP

Elizabeth Taylor Violet Eyes

elizabeth-taylor-violet-eyes-adYes, the very bottle I reviewed the other day.  Elizabeth Taylor Violet Eyes has notes of peach and cedar and a hint of jasmine. This bejewelled 15ml bottle has only been tested by me, but is otherwise full and boxed.  I wasn’t a massive fan, but that doesn’t mean you won’t like it, or know someone who does.  The bottle has a little diamante choker on! So cute.

How to Win

Just tell me which one you’d like to win and I will enter you into the draw. You can tell me in the comments scetion below, on Facebook or on Twitter.  Closing date is one week from now- 16th January 2017 at midnight. Good luck!

Acknowledgements

Many thanks to the Library of Fragrance for the Nutmeg Ice Cream Cologne. Thanks also to World Class Fragrance for Perfumer’s Choice Victor and Valerie.

Library of Fragrance Giveaway!

cakepic2

Those nice people at Library of Fragrance have been kind enought to send me some bottles to review. As much as I want to rub my hands together like a miser and refer to them as “The Precious”, it is only fair that I spread the joy.  After all, it is Christmas and  a good deed goes round the world.

log-cabin

I will be giving away a bottle of Cupcake, Blue Spruce and Log Cabin. All you have to do is comment below, or on my Facebook page, or on Twitter ( @IScentYouADay) to tell me which of the three you would like to win. The giveaway closes at midnight on 17th December 2016 so I’ve got time toget it to you before Christmas.  The giveaway is stricrly UK only, I’m afraid, due to postage regulations. But don’t worry, that’ll all chage when I’m Queen of the World. I am also on Instagram, so you can follow me there too! I’m iscentyouaday.

Good luck!

The Fragrance Shop Discovery Club Box Giveaway and More!

Poudree

I have exciting news about this quarter’s Fragrance Shop Discovery Club Box. Not only is it a great selection of samples, but I have one to give away AND my very own discount code so that you can get one free when you subscribe. I feel properly famous now. I’ll probably be in Celebrity Big Brother next. (Day One.  Samantha heads straight for the kettle.  The other housemates have labelled her “boring.”)jimmycvhoo2

You may have correctly surmised by now that I am a huge fan of discovery boxes. Many a time have I stumbled across a fragrance that wasn’t even on my radar or my “Must Try” list and many a time has that fragrance ended up being a favourite. Discovery Boxes turn your head and whisper “I know you don’t think you’ll like this one, but have you actually tried it?” It’s also a great way to try new releases and new flankers without traipsing round endless shops wondering what your coat sleeves smell of after trying ten scents in one morning. (Guilty).

This month, the Fragrance Shop sent me a Discovery Club Box to see what I thought. I have been a proud subscriber since the scheme began, so now I have two.  As I often tell my sons “It’s not fair to have two when your brother’s got none.”  I am therefore giving one of them away. The contents are a mix of established classics and new launches. There’s three for him and four for her, but that’s just labels. In my opinion, anyone can wear anything.  There’s also a Fragrance Shop booklet containing discount vouchers on a full bottle of each scent sample in the box. Ill be reviewing some of them shortly so watch this space.

What’s in the Box?

Samples are between 1.5ml and 2ml. Here’s what’s in it:fragshopdiscbox16

1. Stella McCartney POP

2. Narciso Rodriguez Eau de Parfum Poudree

3. Jimmy Choo Illicit

4. Hollister California Wave For Her

5. Hollister California Wave For Him

6. Hugo Boss Boss Bottled Unlimited

7. L’EauD’Issey Pour Homme

Here’s How to WIN

Simply tell me which of the above scents you would most like to try, and you could win the whole Discovery Box. You can comment below on the blog, or on Twitter, or on Facebook. Entries are picked via Randompicker. org and entries closes on July 26th at midnight GMT. Please note that this is a UK only giveaway due to postage regulations.
