Hi, wonderful Posse folks and happy MLK Day! Hope you all are doing well as we’ve finished up our first two weeks of 2017. At my abode, we are on a major clean-and-de-clutter campaign (one room a month, DH has decreed). And much to my chagrin, we are down to the last downstairs room and the hammer has fallen: The dining room (aka my perfume room) has been deemed the target for January. Now I’m thinking it’s time for a giveaway (with more possibly to come as we progress along this tortuous journey).
So I’m rounding up some samples that didn’t work for me (some cumins, ouds, and numerous others) to pass them on to a loving home.
The idea of cleaning this room bums me out (actually freakin’ overwhelms me, as in I’m THIS close to a panic attack!), but since I know I have waaay too much, and it’s got to be done, I have to be brave and face the music. And a giveaway (s) would make me feel better about the whole thing.
I can’t pinpoint what exact scents would be in this goodie pack, but it will be a good mix of high-end and less-high-end stuff; if you like the deeper, more animalic notes, then this giveaway would be for you. And if there’s a few you don’t like, well, pass them along to another perfumista who might enjoy them.
Just leave a comment below, about the weather where you are, your pro NFL football teams/picks (we are Atlanta Falcons fans and so are super-psyched that our team will be hosting the Green Bay Packers next weekend — wish we could go to Atlanta to see the game), or anything else that strikes your fancy.
I’ll put the names into one of my big straw hats and have my teenage son close his eyes, reach in and pick a winner. Comments will be accepted through 5 p.m. EST Sunday, Jan. 22, and I’ll announce a winner in next week’s post. And I’m so sorry — I really hate this — but due to my uber-strict post office, the giveaway will have to be limited to U.S. addresses only.
Stay safe and warm, folks (or safe and cool for you all in the Southern Hemisphere)!
