The 200th follower giveaway!

Being a rather niched blog I have been very flattered by the attention it has been given since I started it. Now it has reached 200 followers on Blogger and I felt that’s worth a little celebration in the form of a giveaway. During the year I have tried and tested many vintage perfumes and not everyone has been ones that suits me. Instead of letting them collect dust I have decided to give them away. It's a very small giveaway when it comes to size, but vintage perfume samples can be rather pricey, so I hope it will be appreciated.

1st prize: Choose three samples from the following perfumes: My Sin, Shalimar, Joy, Scandal, Blue Carnation and Fracas. A sample of Shocking will also be included.

2nd prize: The three samples remaining plus a sample of Shocking.

3rd prize: A copy of The Little Book of Perfumes: The 100 classics by Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez.




To enter you need to be either a follower on Blogger or on Facebook and you can comment either here or on FB. I know some of you follow on both, please just comment on one place. The giveaway is open internationally.

To get an extra entry, blog about the giveaway or mention it on Facebook and provide me with a link.

As Christmas is approaching this giveaway will end on New Year’s Eve, at midnight, of course. And with midnight I mean when it strikes in Sweden, UTC/GMT +1 hour.
All samples have been purchased from The Perfumed Court except My Sin that I purchased from Yesterday’s Perfume and Shocking that I found on Etsy. If not stated otherwise the sample is a perfume and contain 1 ml. I have tested all the samples, though I have tried to do so as cleanly as possible.

My Sin by Lanvin, 1924 1 ml sample
Bergamot, heliotrope, neroli, aldehydic accord, carnation. ylang-ylang, lily of the valley, violet, iris, rose, jasmine, musk, vetiver and sandalwood.
Shalimar by Guerlain, 1925 EdT, modern version
Bergamot, lemon, mandarin, rosewood, rose, jasmine, orris, vetiver, patchouli, opoponax, vanilla, civet, Peru balsam, benzoin, coumarin (tonka bean), leather
Joy by Patou, 1930 0.25 ml sample
Bulgarian rose, ylang-ylang, tuberose, jasmine from Grasse and May rose
Scandal by Lanvin, 1933
Neroli, bergamot, mandarin, musk sage, juchten (leather), iris, rose, ylang-ylang, incense, oakmoss, vanilla, vetiver, benzoin
Blue Carnation by Roger & Gallet, 1937
I can’t find any notes listed, but there is a very strong smell of carnations.
Fracas by Piguet, 1948 0.5 ml sample
Bergamot, mandarin, hyacinth, green notes, tuberose, jasmine, orange blossom, lily of the valley, white iris, violet, jonquil, carnation, coriander, peach, osmanthus, pink geranium, musk, cedar, oak moss, sandalwood, orris, vetiver, tolu balsam
Shocking by Schiaparelli, 1937 EdP, 1.5 ml spray flask
Bergamot, tarragon, raspberry, aldehydes, honey, narcissus, rose oriental, carnation, civet, patchouli, vetiver and vanilla.

Oh god I love Piguet perfumes! I'd actually be more interested in 3rd prize because I intend to buy a few of those perfumes myself, so would rather they go to somebody who hasn't had a chance to smell them - but I want to work my way through 'classic' perfumes and knowing their history is even better.
