The Big Four Winners are…


Thank you so much for all your entries in the Big Four giveaway to celeberate four years of this very blog.  I had a great response and can now announce the winers. (Drum roll please)

Can all winners please email me their addresses to please.

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!


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.

      1. Aw, thanks so much for the lovely prize and note!

        I wore it today, my first thoughts were: ‘wow, very sharp citrus, and slightly more feminine than I expected’. Once that initial zing settles down, the dry woody and vetiver smells come through and it smells pretty sophisticated actually.

        I was racking my brains trying to think of what it reminds me of (I agree it seems oddly familiar), and the best I could come up with was if L’occitane’s Eau Universelle and Terre d’ Hermes had a child, this it what it might smell like. It also reminded me of Arran Aromatics’ Bay Citrus – but none of these comparisons quite hit the nail on the head.

        Anyway, I like it – it’ll be good for day or night, it’s office-friendly if you don’t overspray, and it really does have good longevity. I’m a very happy reader – thanks again! 🙏 😊

      2. Oh Steven, what a lovely review! It is so lovely of you to get back in touch and share your thoughts. It was my favourite of the four I gave away, and I must say, it was hard to part with. Thank you so much. I’m glad it went to a good home. xxxx
