It's...return of perfume giveaway!

Due to childbearing and such, I had put the perfume giveaways on hiatus, but the little vials are still sitting here, waiting for new homes. So let's start up again!

Since they've been around a while through a heat wave or two, and that can affect quality sometimes, I'll do them in batches of two to get through them faster and hopefully find them appreciative homes.

Today, two citrusy scents that are both lovely, but, for me, not quite worth the hard-to-acquire quality and price. Both are 1 ml sample vials from The Perfumed Court, and here follow their descriptions:

Un Zeste d'Ete by L'Artisan: A sparkling, bright, summery concoction of lemon rind, orange bergamot, grapefruit and lemon blossom. A citrus lover's dream! Un Zeste D'Ete is an eau de toilette. Feminine.

D'Orange Verte by Hermes: Hermès introduced Eau d'Orange Verte in 1979 (the original name was Eau de Cologne d'Hermès; it was renamed Eau d'Orange Verte in 1997). It was created by perfumer Francoise Caron and has notes of bergamot, lemon, mandarin, mint, jasmine, orange blossom, patchouli, moss and cedar. Eau de cologne; unisex leaning toward masculine.

To enter to win the sample, just comment on this post. I'll choose a winner by random number on Sunday. International entrants now welcome! Non-LJers too, as always, though you'll have to leave me some way to contact you. Good luck!

It's right here! Just thought fruit would fit for these perfumes...though I guess the icon shows no citrus, actually.

These sound gorgeous, especially the Eau D'Orange Verte. Please count me in, if you're really okay with sending them internationally.

...Er. Or something.
