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?
Today's giveaway/virtual rummage sale is the following used fragrances:
Jardins de Bagatelle by Guerlain
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.
