Exciting isn’t it? I’m a bit nervous as I’ve never done a giveaway before but I’m sure that giving nice stuff away for free can’t be that scary. I may get a taste for it…
As you know, I have been reviewing several fragrances from Milton Lloyd lately and as you know, my opinions of them have been positive. I like it that Milton Lloyd caters for perfume lovers who have more dash than cash and no cash to splash. ( I thang you, I’m aiming for Poet Laureate in 2015). Those nice people at Milton Lloyd have very kindly donated some lovely big EDP bottles for me to give away and here’s what you’ll be getting if you win:
Milton Lloyd Colour Me Femme Gold 100ml EDP, boxed: With top notes of orange blossom and raspberry, middle notes of jasmine, lily and rose and a base of patchouli and musk, this long lasting EDP ought to see you well into the New Year. Fans of Paco Rabanne Lady Million often find Colour Me Femme Gold smells very similar.
Milton Lloyd Colour Me Pink 100ml EDP boxed: opening with rose and almond blossom, with a heart of lily, geranium, and heliotrope, and a gentle base of soft musk and vanilla, this is feminine, light and pretty and lasts around seven hours on me.
Milton Lloyd Colour Me Gold for Men: 100ml EDP It’s loud! But good. Colour Me Gold for Men opens with citrus and mint, bedding down to spices, lavender, and rose and finally settling down with base notes of patchouli, leather, woods and amber. Many people think that it’s a dead ringer for Paco Rabanne One Million, and it certainly has similar longevity and sillage.
Milton Lloyd Colour Me Purple (For Her) 100ml EDP Colour Me Purple opens with melon and bergamot, with middle notes of jasmine, rose and violet, and a heady base of oakmoss and patchouli. It reminds me of something far more expensive: possibly a more intense version of Coco Mademoiselle, but not as oriental as Coco. In any case, it lasts eight hours on my skin and makes me smell expensive! Maybe if you win you can share your thoughts on it with me.
Naturally if you win I won’t be able to resist chucking in a few samples that have been reviewed so far, for the ultimate sniff-as-you-read experience.
All you have to do is answer one (okay two) questions on the Facebook page: What was the first perfume you ever bought yourself? And do you still wear it? Please state whether you’re after Giveaway one or Giveaway Two . There is no right or wrong answer and I will put your names in a hat and persuade a small child to pick it out (I may bribe him with Lego). One important point: sadly, due to draconian postal regulations, I can only ship perfume within the UK. Here’s the link to the page you need: IScentYouADay Facebook page
