While you wait... a giveaway!

***quick note to people finding this post - sadly the draw closed on September 11th!
Thanks for your interest and do subscribe as I'll be doing more! ***


Apologies for the silence - I've just been so busy since I've been 'unemployed'! If I'm not out and about, I'm glued to the screen writing emails and working on the websites. A huge post about the Scandalous High Socie-Tea is in the works, but while you wait for me to tell you all about it, how about a giveaway?

I bought a vial of the fabulous Speakeasy Vanilla perfume from Wiggle Perfume on Etsy, following a post the other week about the shop by Solanah. Now I absolutely can't fault Solanah's taste, the perfume smells absolutely delicious... just not when I put it on my skin. The vanilla smell faded immediately and the frankincense smell amplified on me until it was overpowering. I tried it a couple of times, but I have come to the sad conclusion that this delicious scent just doesn't work with my body chemistry. However, since it obviously works for Solanah and also for the lovely Twila Jean at The Mysterious Life of the Metropolitan Housewife, I thought I'd offer this little gift to one of my readers, to try it out for themselves.

So here it is, a 5ml vial of Wiggle Perfume's Speakeasy Vanilla scent!



I'm just going to copy all the gals who've done giveaways recently and say that to be in with a chance, simply leave me a comment below, but for an extra chance, post about the giveaway on your own blog and send me the link.

This giveaway is open to anyone in the world. I'll announce the winner next Friday - the 11th. Good luck everyone!

  1. Oooh I'd love to give this a try. It'll look beautiful on the dressing table if nothing else :-) I don't have a blog, and its been a long time since my site was updated as I've not been performing since Christmas, but I can put on my cutest smile, flutter my eyelashes, and other such things that may or may not improve my chances :-)

  21. Oh I hate when something smells good in the bottle but noT on you.In my early 20's I worked for Estee Lauder and I remember one of my co-workers no matter what she wore it always smelled good on her,even Youth Dew which I can't stand.

  24. Ah, too bad you can't wear this scent. Vanillas are just absolutely wonderful - remind me of baking and all things sweet and lovely. I would be quite glad to try if the perfume would behave better on my skin.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oooh yes please! I've had a wiggle perfume on my to-buy-when-I'm-employed again wishlist...
    I have a blog I'll resurrect (after 3 years of no posts) for this for sure!
    Hopeful-tea I'll win it, I love vanilla!
