in soviet russia, stink gives me!


It's just a teeny, tiny little giveaway.

Because it's freezing cold and dreary outside, and I want to make someone smile.

Nothing to raise a big stink about.

But I have 14 samples of artisan perfume oil from Wiggle Perfume on Etsy, and I thought maybe someone else would enjoy them.

These samples are so lovely that I have ordered 3 of them in larger sizes and may go back for more tonight. I wear DuBois, Nichosia, and Sicily all the time.

Please keep in mind that this is not a sponsored giveaway-- Ms. Wiggle has no idea I'm doing it. I just love her stuff and want to pass these on to a new home.


They've all been smelled, and some of them have been used... but always when I was clean and fresh. Still... if you like to smell yummy things... and it's free... why the heck not?

To enter the wee giveaway, just comment with your favorite perfume, perfumerie, or online retailer of stink. You must live in the US. You have until Friday morning to comment.

There, now. Have a nice cup of cocoa and get warm.

BPAL! My favorite, most worn scent probably would be Lady Una. I won't call her my favorite, but I love her so and she just works in any situation, any weather, any day.

Issey Miyake L´Eau d´Isey Eau de Toilette Spray became my favorite when I was in college, but I haven't bought any new since I had my first babe almost 4 years ago...maybe I'll win and can try something new! :)

Of course I'm a BPAL person all the way. No one does it like our Beth.
My favorite of all time is Antique Lace, but...alas, component issues. I also love 51...and an infinite variety of others.

I have two favorites. One of them is Ginger Souflee from Origins and one is a very beachy-sunscreeny scent my sister got from Anthropologie and poured some in to an unmarked bottle for me. YUM.

Danielle said...

That's a hard one. I'm not a HUGE fan of stinking, but when I do, I love essential oils. My favorite combination is a divine lemon sage ginger blend. I also like Aveda's rosemary mint hair care fragrance.

BPAL is my favorite of course. I have a haard time pinning down one favorite scent, but I seem to wear Spooky and Dana O'Shee a lot. Right now, I'm wearing The Star.

Crystal Thomas said...

Black Phoenix is also my retailer of choice. My favorite depends on my mood or time of year. Currently, 'Tis the Voice of the Lobster is heavy in rotation.

I love Tocca Cleopatra, but I just wish is wasn't so $$$$!!

Alice Istanbul said...

I don't wear perfume, but if I did, it would be Eau d'Issey. I can't believe that when I was in high school I used to wear Obsession by Calvin Klein, and Angel by Thierry Mugler....gagggggggg.

I love smelling good - mostly to counteract how much my hsuband smells.

love you

I like inner grace by philosophy, and everything lavender-scented.

charissimo said...

Oh, holy shit! ME! ME! Please pick me! I've been a good girl and I usually smell bad!

I like Aveda Love and Coco Chanel, but really want some more natural, every-daysy ones so I don't smell so chickenesque.

You're the best.

I am still using the holiday sampler I got from http://www.etsy.com/shop/scentbythesea - very enjoyable.

I did it. I bought a 5mL of Camilla from www.wiggleperfume.etsy.com, stink-unsmelled, because the thought of something that red and juicy just about gave me the wiggles.

Caroline D. said...

don't laugh, but I like things with patchouli in them. just a hint, i love the earthiness...

M family said...

During my twenties I loved Cool Water by Davidoff. Now, it's some nice perfume in lady shaped bottle that my hubby got during his travels - not sure of the name.

urfaqhesse said...

chanel mademoiselle! if i could afford perfume, that's what i'd buy. mostly, though, i like lavender and the smell of spices cooking.

Angela said...

me me me i don't really know what it the smells are but I would love to try!

Katiri said...

sandalwood, earthy/natural stuff.

Delilah S. Dawson said...

Okay, figuring out winner now. I hate www.random.org. I always feel like I'm messing up somehow.

Delilah S. Dawson said...

www.random.org has spoken, and it has chosen katiri. Twice. Which is tres weird, as 20 out of 20 doesn't seem random, but apparently is. Email me your addy, and I'll get 'em out to you, probably Monday.

Charis, just go buy some, dude. At $1 a pop, they're well worth it, I promise!

charissimo said...

I know, I know. I just wanted to WIN, dammit! And need someone to pick them out for me as I suck in this department. But congratulations, Katiri, darling!
