The Freezing Holiday Top 7 Winner

Hey there Posse! Remember the The Freezing Holiday Top 7? It’s great to back home again, even though holidays blow your mind there is very little so wonderful as cuddling up to your partner in your own bed. Having the dogs around, friends, kitchen, washing machine. All these simple things are just a few of the reasons why I come home.

Maybe you remember that I had a pre holiday competition going where the first person to guess my three holiday frags would win a sample of all seven of my Top 7. Here’s the thing, NONE OF YOU GUESSED!!!

Then, to make matters even more complicated I picked three frags and then left them on the desk. I know! Stupid Ass Hole! What were my 3? Geranium Pour Monsieur, Kashmir Spice, Midnight Oud

So here’s what I decided to do. I gave everyone a number and picked a winner. The winner will get a sample of all 7 of the The Freezing Holiday Top 7 and P&H anywhere in the world. The winner is……..


You have till Sunday 2nd March to get your address to portia underscore turbo at yahoo dot com dot au
If, for whatever reason, you miss the deadline I will give the prize to someone else.

    You know we’re your people, when we’d probably all agree that it was better to overspray something strong on an airplane than go “naked.” I can’t believe no one guessed right! If I remember correctly, I had two out of three. Your description strongly hinted that Geranium pour Monsieur was one of the three, and I’m trying to figure out the odds of guessing the other two correctly. One in 6! (factorial)? That can’t be right. One in 36? Well, the important thing is that you had a great time, and that I won. xxx

    Howdy, Portia! Glad you are home OK and settling in. Traveling is wonderful, but coming back home is always special. Still grinning over the Juliette Has a Gnu — perfume humor is the best.

    You left what you wanted to take at home? I always seem to forget something whenever I go on a trip. What I’ve taken to doing, perfume wise, is that I always pack no. 5 in EDT form and a decant of Jicky in my carry on, so if I forget whatever other bottle, it’s okay I have something.

    • Portia says:

      Yes, that’s why I always have a small selection of stuff in my carry on at any given time. Not because I forget stuff usually but because I like to have some choice while traveling to my destination.

    Congratulations to LaurelS and oh, Portia! I sooo feeeeelyerPAIN! I do that constantly – but with prosaic crap like…”hey! I’mo go to the Bank. Hey! I am At the Bank. Hey! Where’s the freakin’ CHECK I was going to deposit. Oh. It’s still on my desk? Oh. Okay.”

    Glad you’re home safe and sound, darling!!!

    That’s the second time in as many days that someone’s mentioned Black Rosette. It’s stalking me. No. no nonono… my bank account is cowering already and I haven’t even sampled it.

    And there you are with Juliet has a Gnu again… it just makes me smile, sweetie, so thanks for that.

  • Tiara says:

    So am I reading this correctly….you didn’t take ANY perfume with you?

    • Portia says:

      I took some samples/decants & small stuff in my carry on Tiara,
      There were two Mandy Aftel mini parfums, a 5ml Angel Men Leather, a 5ml Mohur Extrait and a 10ml Eau Absolue. These have been rolling around mycarry on for a while and THANK GOODNESS!
      Though I didn’t have my glasses on and had a shower in the VERY posh Thai First Class Lounge in Bangkok and spritzed 3 blasts of Angel Men Leather thinking it was something else. OOOPS! We could still smell it upon landing in Vienna nearly a day later.

      • Tiara says:

        Whew! For a moment there I thought you were perfume-naked. Couldn’t imagine that! Surprised 3 spritzes of Angel Men didn’t get you thrown off your flight!

        • Portia says:

          Yes, it probably would have if we were in the back, more room in the front.
          I was a bit embarrassed by it though to be honest.
