For those who didn’t win, there will be more giveaways throughout the year so watch this space.  Here are the details of stockists where you can buy the above fragrances, and none of them will break the bank!

Stockists

Elizabeth Taylor Violet Eyes is from Fragrance Direct at only £2.99 for 15ml. Library of Fragrance Nutmeg Ice Cream is available from the Library of Fragrance website for just £15.  The Perfumer’s Club selection is available from the World Class website. A long lasting 83ml bottle is just £14 and longevity is a guaranteed six hour minimum. In my opinion, Valerie smells very similar to Black Opium, so if that’s your poison, you’ve found a real gem. Victor is all about the grapefruit and the vetiver and was my secret favourite of the four.

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!
