Paris Giveaway!


Here is the fabulously lovely thing I am offering to all of you, a treasure brought from the most wonderful and elegant city of Paris. It's a set of ten sample size perfumes from Fragonard, the luxury French parfumeur founded in 1926 that owns the tiny and exquisite Musée du Parfum in Paris. These scents are some of the company's most famous. Fragrances like rose, patchouli, bergamot, freesia, amber, and lily of the valley, among many others, give each perfume a luxurious and timeless smell.

All you need to do to have a chance to win this utterly fantastic set is to leave a comment on this post telling me about your favorite perfume and why you love it. Entries will be valid until August 12th at noon Eastern Standard Time. Later that day I will put all your names into a random generator and choose a winner (your comments are just for my entertainment, they won't actually factor into your chances of winning, but please leave a good one anyway!). Only one entry per person, please, and U.S. residents only.

Bonne chance to you all! And seriously, I am so jealous.

P.S. I am in serious need of some blog layout help that involves changing the size and format of my header. If anyone thinks they can provide assistance, please let me know!

Oooh, a giveaway!:) I don't wear much perfume, but one I like is Dream Angels, Heavenly from Victorias Secret. One of the few perfumes that doesn't smell 'old ladyish':):)

how exciting! my favorite perfume is "field of freesias" by anthropologie... not only are freesias my favorite flower, but the perfume smells so good & reminds me of my fiance's smell.

Eeee, fun! My favorite perfume is "Armani Code" by Armani because it smells like orange blossoms - the best scent EVER in spring in AZ.

Sylvia said...

Cool new header darling!
Well, I don't know if I've found my favorite perfume yet, but I have two that are kind of special to me. Both were given to me by my Oma when I was much little and I always viewed them as grown up treats that I could put on and transform me into someone very classy and importance. I don't use them often or in large amounts, but when I do I remember that feeling. One is Ô de Lancôme and the other I do not know the exact name of because it is hiding from me at the moment! Also, a third perfume I use more often and like the scent of is silver tea citrus flower. Anyway, this is fabulous and excited to see the winner!!

It depends on my mood or what I'm doing but I go back and forth between Ralph Lauren Romance and Chanel No.5. It reminds me of my grandma and being a little kid and wanting to be just like her :)

Jamie said...

Ahw it's only for US residents.

But I'll still want to tell you my favourite perfume. Le male from Jean Paul Gaultier. My boyfriend has that one and when it combines with his own scent...I love it.

Sammi said...

I love giveaways...even though I never win. My favorite perfume is Very Sexy by Victoria's Secret. I like it because it's very sexy, obviously and it just makes me feel beautiful. It isn't too strong, and my boyfriend loves it. (It's very sexy, not sexy, very very sexy, very sexy hot, or very sexy dare. Not kidding, it always takes me forever to find it!)

scarlett said...

Lolita Lempicka! It's French, simplistic, enchanting, rebellious, lovely. :)

Isabel said...

Boo on giveaways that are only for US residents! I guess it's okay cause I never wear perfume anyways - my best friend is allergic!

alexis said...

my favorite perfume would have to be daisy by marc jacobs. it's got so much personality. it's sexy, yet playful. whenever i smell it, i am instantly happier. it also makes me feel classier, even if i am just wearing jeans and a teeshirt. not mention, it's marc jacobs :)

Anna G said...

Let me say that Fragonard is amazing!!! I got to see their factory in the South of France, when I went on my trip. And naturally, we all got to buy perfume at the end. My favorite is by them it's called Juste un Baiser. But I wish I bought more.

Taryn said...

What an amazing giveaway! :) well my daily favorite is Chance by Chanel. My mom gave it to me so it hold sentimental value, plus I love that the scent is both light and complex managing to change as it wears on. My other favorite is Amour by Kenzo, I probably like it even a little bit more than the Chanel one, but I am yet to get my hands on a full size bottle.

Randi said...

Hmmm... I don't have a favorite perfume, I change mine as often as my mood or the weather! When I wear perfume, it's either Fracas (the one worn by my mom) or a fabulous lilac oil that I have. I love the smells of baby powder and suntan lotion even more than most perfumes....

falaska31 said...

My favorite perfume is Lancome's Miracle because it isn't too feminine, but it isn't too masculine or musky. Whenever I wear it I feel totally awesome.

The Clothes Horse said...

Er, I'm no blog expert but I use the tutorials around the web and manually adjust the html. But I'd be happy to help if I can with a specific question...
My favorite perfume? I'm torn, I love Escada's summer scents, it really lifts my spirits in the winter. Lemongrass lavender though is wonderful as well.

Mouthwash said...

My favorite parfum (oooh in the French form!)by far is Victor and Rolf's Flower Bomb. I first came across it in the Louvre - underneath the Triangle in Sephora's. Been there?
That parfum is sheer heaven to me. It's a complex floral, and makes me think happy thoughts! Aah, someday.
What a wonderful giveaway!!

Vanessa said...

oooh! i went to the one in eze, in the south of france! perfumes are so great.

GISELLE said...

I don't like very many perfumes, but the one I do enjoy wearing a lot would have to be Very Sexy by Victoria's Secret. Whenever I wear it I feel...well, sexy! It's a perfect blend of spice and je ne sais quois that tickles my fancy.

Thanks for the opportunity!

Shooting Stars Mag said...

I'm actually wearing Very Sexy recently, but I'm in need of some new ones. Lovely giveaway.

My favorite perfume is Love, A bloom. It's got soft rose, a tinge of fruit, and I've never smelled anything that makes me feel the way it does.

:)
thanks for the chance at this!

Annie Spandex said...

I love perfume! My favorite perfume is Sensuous by Estee Lauder because it smells like ginger ale and mixes well with cigarette smoke :)

Iris said...

What a pity I'm not a US resident, I lurve Fragonard!

My favourite perfume? I really love L'Occitane's 'Iris' fragrance - because, well, who doesn't love something that smells gorgeous and is also their namesake?! But my favourite is Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel :-)

heleen db said...

Isn't it heartbreaking when Dumbledore dies :( Or FRED!! Poor Fred, I always prefered him over George for some reason.

Anyway, my favourite scent is the 'Flower' perfume by Oilily. Top notes are mandarin orange and lemon; middle notes are cyclamen, melon, plum, green apple, raspberry and jasmine; base notes are sandalwood, oakmoss and vetiver. (That's what I found on google, I think it smells of our garden which is just perfect.)
But don't enter me in the giveaway because I live in Belgium!

idée_géniale said...

I want to win this! I actually don't have a fave perfume because I haven't found one yet!! (more reason to win!) I really like the Jo Malone perfumes because they're so clean and fresh but unfortunately I can't afford them...:(

Sophia and Mary said...

I wear oil in the summer, cuz it's sweat proof. my fav right now is lavender. I love to smell like a garden! I also love britney's scents (don't hate.)

E said...

Oh I actually love Fragonard! My mom introduced me to this scent. My other fave is Lancome Aroma Tonic - it's a wonderfully fresh, citrus scent.

My sister and I searched for years for the perfect fragrance that would keep us scented like a fresh soap...without smelling like soap...we finally discovered it in Amazing Grace by Philosophy...hallelujah!

It is such a fabulous fragrance, even my husband uses the body emulsion (lotion) to retain a fresh scent.

blorange dice said...

my favorite is most definitely BCBG Nature. My sister received it as a gift once and for some reason didn't want it... and thus, i found my scent! it's sweet, yet gentle and not quite as popular as some of the other perfumes out there, which i like.

Little Monarch said...

oooooh delightful! my favourite perfume is doce vita by dior.

I LOVE IT. I love the fragrance, i love the bottle, i love the packaging, i love the name

everything about it is perfection.

Little Monarch said...

oh shucks U.S residents only. well my fave perfume still remains the same and i still love your blog just dont include me in the giveaway

Sophia said...

Cool! Thanks for the giveaway.
My favorite perfume is most definitely Daisy by Marc Jacobs. I love Marc Jacobs in general, so I figured I would like his fragrances, but that one in particular is just perfectly fresh and pretty without being overbearing. It reminds me of running through fields full of daisies. Probably just cause of the name, haha :)

ONiC said...

sigh this make me wish i lived in state hahaha

jumpseat monalisa said...

i love burberry brit perfume. i've been wearing it since ninth grade and it reminds me of my best friend from when i was 15 and school dances.

Penny said...

I'm excited to enter (:
My favourite perfume at the moment is Light Blue by D&G. My sister wears it, so everytime I hug her I get a whiff.

Talk Pretty To Me said...

I am obsessed with perfume! I have about 7 different bottles right now. Its hard to say which one is my favorite. Right now I am in really in love with Victoria's Secret's new perfume Noir, the only complaint I have with it is that it doesn't seem to last that long. HOWEVER, it smells amazing! Thanks for the giveaway doll!

I've always loved Escada. I remember on the plane ride home from my Peace Corps mission I bought a bottle of duty free Rockin' Rio. It had been so long since I'd worn any perfume that it seemed really special. :)
