Bloggy Giveaway Carnival--Perfumes that aren't good enough for me All gone!


You know how it is when you read a ton of makeup and fragrance boards and people are raving about some fragrance, so you click over to some on-line perfume store and they have free shipping, and some of the prices are unbelievable, so you buy a bunch of fragrances based on their descriptions, and when they arrive, they're OK, but you never wear them? And you want to get rid of them because each bottle sits there collecting dust and reminding you of the money you spent that you can't get back? And yet, the average thrift shop or rummage sale isn't interested in a bottle of eau de toilette with a half inch missing?

No? It's just me?

FINE.

Today's giveaway/virtual rummage sale is the following used fragrances:

Jardins de Bagatelle by Guerlain
Madeleine Vionnet
Caleche by Hermes
Hiris by Hermes
Serendipitous by Serendity 3
Ombre Rose by Jean Brosseau
Allure by Chanel
Joy by Jean Patou
Eclat d'Arpege by Lanvin

Because there are so many bottles, I'll send them to the first takers. Feel free to pick two or three, but don't go nuts and ask for the whole bunch, because that's not nice.

Bottles will be shipped out Priority Mail, probably next week, but don't hold me to it.

Also, I don't remember when I bought these, but most of them are two or three years old and used, OK? Except for the tiny (.05 oz/1.5 ml) bottle of Allure perfume, which I got as a free sample at the Chanel store in Paris because my attempts to speak French made the French ladies there decide that Americans are pleasant enough, maybe even charming, but hardly their intellectual equals. So they felt sorry for me, and loaded me with samples.

"Allons enfants de la Poppy! She is giving free perfume!"

  5. I need something different. I will take whatever you want to send that would work well for a road rage magnet. (It happened again today but this time holding my cell phone and acting like I was calling the cops and giving a description of the car made her turn around in the middle of the road and haul ass in the other direction.)

  6. If I win, I'd take any of the milder scented perfumes!
    I realized I've been wearing the same perfume since highschool... so dated.

  19. Don't know a damn thing about perfume, but I like deep musky smells, like Opium. The other stuff smells horrid on me.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Awesome! I would love to give those perfumes a try :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love smelly things! But I have no idea what any of those are supposed to smell like. I generally like warm fragrances more than cool, but if I win you can just pick whichever ones. If I don't like them, I can just spread the love and pass them on. :)

  29. This is fun. I don't know any of those perfumes, but I go for a more musky, not flowery smell. I'd have to let you chose for me.

  30. Wow! I don't know any of these perfumes either, but would love to try any of them (and have lots of students/etc to pass them on to if they don't work for me. I promise I'd find them a good home!). That being said, I like the names of Hiris by Hermes and Serendipitous by Serendity 3! :)
