For those of you in the know, Andy Tauer’s been busy doing his annual Advent Calendar Giveaway on his blog – each day he’s giving away samples of “Eau d´épices” (“experimental, fresh from the lab”) – plus maybe something else (teaser set, bottles, etc.) depending. It’s also fun to look at the traffic feeds on the right.
Today, Friday the 18th, the Posse is honored to host a giveaway here, which is simple: leave a comment below. Every comment that shows up here before midnight tonight, Friday the 18th, will be eligible for a special draw, directly from Andy Tauer:
“a Thuja root box, with a full bottle of a fragrance from my line, free to choose, value of 130 $US, shipped from Zurich, at no cost to the winner.” So, folks, you get to choose the fragrance.
Seriously, how great is that? Here is a picture of the box I grabbed off his site, aren’t they gorgeous? (see below right)
Okay, so for the giveaway post today I was invited to blog on any topic, and I think the topic is clear – the awesome love we feel for indie perfumer Andy Tauer and his super-cool fragrances and various interesting fragrance experiments (like sending a traveling fragrance around the globe for review.) Also he makes incredible soap, which you didn’t hear from me. Also his scents make me feel inappropriately cuddly, mushy sentiments toward him, a man I don’t even know, which I won’t be expressing because I don’t want to scare him off.
But you can do it!!!! He’ll come by and read these comments, sneaky thing that he is. Let’s share the Andy Tauer love – here’s your chance to write a comment telling Andy how much one of his scents means to you, a Tauer fragrance memory or moment from your life, which one is your favorite, or whatever. (All comments will be counted in the draw, whether or not you tell an Andy fragrance story.)
Clarifying/reiterating: I’m not going to be responding to comments. IF YOU COMMENT BELOW ON THIS POST BEFORE MIDNIGHT, FRIDAY 18 (notice the comments are timed and dated) YOU ARE IN THE DRAW. I WILL USE RANDOM.ORG TO PICK THE NUMBER, AND I’LL ANNOUNCE THE WINNER DEC. 19 and forward that contact info to Andy, so get it right.
Have at it. Oh, and this is March posting. I have it set to “guest poster” so the entries don’t flood my inbox!
DEC. 18 UPDATE WITH THE WINNER: CONGRATULATIONS TARA C!!! I’ve forwarded your contact info to Andy.
