I'm featured! Thus, a giveaway...

There's an article about me on the Nights and Weekends site--I'm their featured e-author this month! Come read it and learn who I cite as my influences and what scents I would capture and stick in a bottle if I could.

And since it mentions the occasional perfume giveaways on my blog, let's do one now to reward anyone who comes looking for one...

Today's double header:

Cafe Noir by Dawn Spencer Hurwitz - has notes of bergamot, black pepper, cinnamon bark, pimento berry, benzoin, Bulgarian rose otto, jasmin, labdanum, coffee absolute, tolu balsam and vanilla. A rich, luscious, peppery coffee scent. It is an eau de parfum.

Labdanum 18 by Le Labo - Le Labo Labdanum 18 eau de parfum features the soft, lingering scent of labdanum (cistus) with a slightly animalic base. This is a lovely, intriguing scent.

Both are sampled, but mostly full, 1 ml vials from The Perfumed Court, who provided the scent descriptions above. To enter to win the samples, comment on this post. I'll choose a winner by random number on Sunday. International entrants welcome. Non-LJers too, as always, though you'll have to leave me some way to contact you. Good luck!

Yay Mol! Fun article. :-) I would love those scents in a bottle, too. :-)

And speaking of scents, I would love to be included in the contest. :-)

Hey, Molly,

You could have knocked me over with a feather with the mention of black pepper.

I'll take your word for it that the perfume smells great, but I'd stick with the other 'lovely, intriguing' scent you wrote about.

Take care

Both those perfumes sound lovely.

Also, congratulations again on being featured...you'll have to include your autograph with the perfume samples when you send them to the lucky winners! :)

Well I would comment but since some kind person has just sent me a vial of Chanel No 5 (!) I'm Ok for perfume atm.

Thank you SO much - wearing it now!

Cool, glad it got there so quick! That bodes well for future international entrants. And now you smell like Marilyn Monroe, so that's good too. :)

Entering again, even though I never win...I think your random number generator hates me.
Oct. 10th, 2009 01:37 am (UTC)
Well, I use the one at random.org, so take it up with them! :)
