Lady E’s Favorite Things: Perfume

During December I developed a serious addiction to perfumes. I used to avoid perfumes as they trigger my rhinitis but colognes and body sprays don’t last the whole day so you have to re-apply. There are two things that I only do once a day before I leave the house: 1. Comb my hair. 2. Spritz perfume. I hate bringing perfume bottles when I’m on the go. So I decided to splurge on perfume. They are a good long-term investment and I don’t get hassled anymore.

One of my favorite brands is Givenchy and they are giving away samples of their 2 new fragrances – Play for Men (endorsed by Justin Timberlake) and Le Secret (endorsed by Uma Thurman) to one of my lucky followers. And I’m also throwing in Lady Million by Paco Rabanne:

MB has Play for men and I have Le Secret which we will give as a gift to someone in the family.

They come in cute spritzer bottles:

Play is very potent so you only need a small amount. It lasts the whole day.

House Rules:

1. I need at least 5 participants for each giveaway to push through. If there are not enough participants, the prize will be put in the next giveaway’s pot. There will only be 1 winner for each giveaway unless otherwise stated. So for example, if there are not enough interested girls in the above prize then I’ll include this in the next giveaway. The winner of that giveaway will win both the above prize and the featured prize of that giveaway.  If that giveaway still does not push through then the third giveaway winner will win 3 prizes and so on.

2. Be a follower. If you already are, state in the comments section.

3. Blog about this giveaway or place in your sidebar. If you don’t have a blog, you can tweet it or put it in Facebook. Send me the link.

4. Answer this question: What is your favorite perfume and why?

5. State all your answers in the comments section. Example:
Lady E. I’m a follower. I blogged about this giveaway here (link). I also tweeted about this here (link) and you can find it in my FB here (link). My favorite perfume is Clinique Happy because the scent just perks me up every time.

6. This first giveaway is until Friday, February 4, 12 MN only. This is open to Philippine readers only.
Since there were not enough participants in the first giveaway, I am including all these in this giveaway:

  3. i am actually a scent person. most of them are just eu de toilette and not eu de parfum. but unlike most men who like musk virile scent, i prefer the lighter, unisex type. in fact, my daily use right now are Inspire(Marks&Spencer) and Light Blue(Dolce&Gabbana). hahaha.

    i had them because they're cheap but not the likes of the "Bambini Cologne for Men, halimuyak ng lalakeeeeng desenteeee". :)

  4. @John Ray: I like light scents too. I stay away from musky scents. Tingnan ko nga ung Light Blue.

    Sus, if I know, nagBambini ka no?

  5. my favorite scent is Lancome Miracle.
