Perfume giveaway: five in one! Tea theme.

I've been accumulating cute little perfume samples at a zealous rate this past year. Knows Perfume has been holding these once-a-month classes on a given fragrance note, where as part of the experience you get a bag of samples containing that note, and, well, I can't resist that. But naturally only *some* of the fragrances work well enough on my skin that I want to hoard them. The rest I feel inclined to share with the world, so as to let them find a perfect home and spread the gospel of scent, etc. etc. Why am I still talking? Without further yapping, here are the five, yes, FIVE scents I am giving away this time:

The Dormouse, Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab: four teas, light herbs, peony.

Scent, Costume National: amber, jasmine tea, mother of pearl hibiscus, woods.

Sandalo e The, Bois 1920: jasmine, Bulgarian rose, sandalwood, tea leaves.

Malabah, Penhaligon's: lemon, Earl Grey tea, cilantro, ginger, nutmeg, cardamom, rose, orris, sweet amber, sandalwood, musk.

Fire and Cream, Strange Invisible Perfumes: orange, orange blossom (neroli), tuberose, frankincense, white lavender, vetiver, sandalwood, patchouli. (Not a tea scent, but tossed in for variety.)


All are in the usual 1 ml sample vials, though concentration varies. (I believe BPAL and Strange Invisible are oils, or at least higher concentration, while the others are EDTs or perhaps EDPs.) Comment on this post to enter the drawing. Winner gets all five vials, naturally. I'll pick a winner by random number generator in one week. I'm dreadfully sorry, but I'm restricting it again to US entrants. Going to the post office and dealing with customs forms took more time than I can usually spare, whereas I can weigh and stamp US mail from home.

Thanks and good luck!
