Press kits, lookbooks and beauty samples are slowly taking over my living space, which is why I've decided to share the wealth and host one fragrance giveaway a week for the rest of September. This is your chance to start the season (or the school year) off on the right foot with a sweet new scent! Every Monday I'll announce a new giveaway, and each Friday I'll announce a winner. Simple, no?
The first fragrance in 'The Sweet Scent of September' giveaway series is one of Givenchy's latest, the Ange ou Démon Le Secret Elixir eau de parfum intense. Billed as a "depply sensual floral white flowers fragrance," it features notes of Italian lemon, green tea, and neroli, as well as a mix of white flowers: Sambac jasmine, orange blossom, and frangipani flower. The flask--a pink-purple faceted pendant with hints of smoke and amethyst--would be a welcome addition to any dresser top.
Overall, Le Secret Elixir is light, pretty and pleasant without being cloying. It starts off fruity and floral, then fades to a lingering powdery vanilla/patchouli finish. In Canada, Le Secret is available exclusively at The Bay ($61-114 depending on the product).
To win a bottle of Givenchy Ange ou Démon Le Secret Elixir:
- Leave a fun comment on this post explaining why you're an angel or a demon. For example: "I'm an angel because I'm a Big Sister"; "I'm an angel because I always offer my boyfriend a bite of my food before I dig into it"; or "I'm a demon because I make fun of girls who wear Uggs."
- Entrants must have some means for me to contact them (email, blog, Twitter, etc.). Entries without a means of contact will be disqualified.
- The deadline for this giveaway is Friday September 16, 12pm PST. One winner will be drawn randomly.
