Neela Vermeire Creations GIVEAWAY + LIVE Video Sniff

Hello POSSE!!

Portia here from AustralianPerfumeJunkies and boy do we have a GIVEAWAY for you this week! There’s also a LIVE Video Sniff. OMG! An embarrassment of riches for you. As always Radium and I are completely clueless about anything but do our very best to muddle through while being silly and hopefully amusing. We enjoyed making the video for you and gave ourselves a few laughs, wishing you same.

I came the Posse after a hiatus from my fragrance hobby, and discovered your Australian Perfume Junkies blog as an added bonus! I am subscribed via email. I'll throw in for Kohima; not only is it nestled in the mountainous northeast regions, but it put up 40 years of resistance before being occupied for the first time in its history. Tough and beautiful...that's my idea of a great perfume! Thanks for the opportunity!

Kandice December 8, 2012

Finally made it into the comments section of this post! Yeah! (Major navigation problems here somewhat resolved with Portia and Patty's help - thanks guys!) Can I use Lakshadweep? I didn't see it below. Sounds like a beautiful place being part of a group of "one thousand islands." I follow by email. Thanks so much for the draw!

sammm December 7, 2012

I follow via Wordpress, and I've been trying to get a sample of Bombay Bling without forking over moolah for a few weeks now so that's my choice.

Matt December 7, 2012

I choose Madhya Pradesh (didn't find it in the comments!). Its administrative capital is famous for what could be considered the worst industrial tragedy in history, thanks to Union Carbide. We must not forget! That being said, I follow you by mail; I just registered :) Matt xx

jasouza9 December 7, 2012

Thank you for the drawing. I pick Lucknow - perhaps it will make me lucky! I follow via email.

Amer December 7, 2012

Hi there! I follow via email I think Dispur, capital of Assam is not taken yet, right?

Nancy H. December 7, 2012

Hi Portia, I have signed up to follow you through Wordpress. Has Jodphur been taken yet? It amuses me to think of a capital that brings to mind tight pants.

solanace December 7, 2012

Thank's for the draw, I'm so curious about this line! I'll mention the region of Orissa. Had a dear friend whose family was from Balangir, a long time ago. Follow you by e'mail.

hajusuuri December 7, 2012

Hi Portia, I am following via WordPress and email (I'll know for sure if I did it right the next time you write a post over there! I pick Hyderabad. It is a colleague's hometown and he just described for me some of the palaces that are still standing and that is is also a growing metropolis with large corporations situating operations there. I recently got a little Bombay Bling love, thanks to a swap buddy (you know who you are) from the recent Posse Swapmania.

Deanna G. December 7, 2012

1. I follow via email. 2. Uttarakhand.

Lauren December 7, 2012

I choose the capital city Bhubaneswar, because it's interesting to say it. I've never been to India but would love to, someday. I follow both Perfume Posse and APJ via email.

karen December 7, 2012

I read both Australian Perfume Junkies and Perfume Posse in my Google Reader via RSS. I have an ex-boyfriend from Madras/Chennai. Thanks for the wonderful draw.

Lori December 6, 2012

Hi Portia, I follow by email and twitter. As far as I can tell, Assam is not yet taken. Thank you for the wonderful draw!

blowens32 December 6, 2012

Ok now I understand. And I really want to try these! I follow as "tomatefarcie". Also want to mention Pondicherry

Lindaloo December 6, 2012

Totally agree with your description on APJ (which I follow by e-mail) of Bombay Bling as a "makes me want to go out dancing, flirting and cha cha cha-ing" scent. For my entry I will choose Jaipur (aka a fruity floral perfume by Boucheron, which I haven't smelled but that bottle is so distinctive, especially in the Saphir flanker).

Dante's Bra December 6, 2012

I follow via email; I also dream of going to Jammu and Kashmir....

breathesgelatin December 6, 2012

I follow you on my RSS reader as well as Twitter! So excited. I have tried Bombay Bling but not yet Mohur or Trayee and I so want to. I'll mention West Bengal as that's where my Indian ex-boyfriend's family hailed from. :)

Shiloh Woodard December 6, 2012

I am following via email, and Shilong is like my name, only Indian! What a great draw, thank you!

Claudia December 6, 2012

I follow Australian Perfume Junkies via email, and I have chosen Goa. It reminds me of so much yummy Indian food! Thanks for the awesome giveaway! :-)

CarmenY December 6, 2012

Wonderful giveaway! Thanks for doing this Portia. I follow you with my rss reader. A bucket list item of mine is to one day travel to Jammu and Kashmir.

Patty Schneider December 6, 2012

Uttar Pradesh, I've always liked the sound of that! I follow Australian Perfume Junkies via email. Your video reviews always brighten up my day, Portia! Thanks for the draw, I've read so many good things about Neela's fragrances.

tammy December 6, 2012

I hope I am understanding the rules correctly! I would like to mention the state of Chhattisgarh, because I sponsor a child there. He lives near Parsapani. I've never met him, but whenever I see or hear India mentioned, I immediately wonder how he's doing. God bless you, Sukhram. The capital is Rapiur, I think. I follow you on Twitter and via email, because I have never been able to get RSS to work for me!

MARK NEWMAN December 6, 2012

Another great video and giveaway Portia. You are always smashing. I follow Perfume Junkies via email. Thanks for the giveaway. I have made my needed comments on PJ.-Dremybluz

Janet Hoover December 6, 2012

Jammu the winter Capitol of Kashmir. I am following on email.

mridula December 6, 2012

No one's taken Delhi yet? Please, Neela create a perfume for Delhi about which city I would say - if there be paradise on earth, it is this, it is this, i is this. Originally of course these lines were composed for Kashmir. But hey. Each to their own and mine is greasy, loud and fragrant with rain and dust. following on email.

Joaquim December 6, 2012

I'm going to say Maharashtra, just because the name makes me remember Mahavishnu Orchestra, the pioneers of jazz-rock fusion, psychedelia and full of virtuosism, McLaughlin, Hellborg, etc... Thank you for the giveaway! I'm following via email

Heather Wood December 6, 2012

I am mentioning Kerala because of a crab dish I ate a few decades ago that I've never forgotten.

o54837s December 6, 2012

Still following via email, and still going for Andaman and Nicobar Islands...

o54837s December 6, 2012

I go for Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Following via Email.

Cyn Nagele December 6, 2012

Read via word press - Patna. Thanks so much for the opportunity!

Ramona December 6, 2012

PUNJAB! Love that word! Thanks for the great draw- I had a sample of Trayee that i blew through in the blink of an eye is was quick! would love to try another of her creations. Followed via Email and RSS ( I think? What does RSS mean,anyway. I ama computer Dummy!)

Annamaria December 6, 2012

Followed via RSS (Bloglovin'). I will pick Uttar Pradesh!

Andrea December 6, 2012

Following WP and Twitter and Youtube (I just love you Portia Turbo!). I will go for Orissa state! Thank you
