June Grab Bag Giveaway!

French Bulldog PackSummer, huh.  This is my summer!  Time for strawberries for me and the puppies, kiddie pools and gardening.  Funny thing about trying to redesign and replant your backyard, the little plants are very tenuous with all these little feet and mouths around. But they’re fun, and I don’t really care. I’ve finally figured out how to live my life reasonably well with all these dogs.  Important now that I’m back at doing some part-time work because, well, a little bit bored.

Time for the random sample grab bag drawing, and I’ll be including a ton of new release samples that I’ve gotten, and I’ll even toss in a sample of the new Amouage Figment (Men and Women).   Drop a comment to be entered, and I’ll draw from commenters for two sample grab bags.

  • Rachel says:

    I’m thinking about getting a few dogs soon, they really do just brighten your life!

    I’d love to enter the giveaway, please! I’ve been out of the perfume hobby for a little while but I’m enjoying getting back into it and sniffing new things 🙂

  • HeidiC says:

    Such cutie-booties! I still haven’t got any gardening done — if I can’t get it in soon, I’m worried it’ll be too late! Thanks for the draw — what’s in the Amouage Figment — fig? Hope it’s fig!

  • Omg, such cute little scrunchy faces! Thank you for the chance to win! <3

    I recently started gardening and I am so excited about it. I've got a tomato plant that I'm waiting for flowers on. Two new baby sego palms that my neighbor gave me, some Marvel of Peru that I planted recently, and Wandering Jew that I'm trying to transplant and hoping and praying that it worked. We'll see soon enough. Along with my Habanero's that seem to be going strong, catnip, and various other things…

  • shylotus says:

    Sweet beasts indeed! Thanks for the draw. I’d love to check out some new releases!

  • Paige W says:

    What a delightful menagerie! We are still a couple of weeks away from strawberries yet, since winter just hammered us here on the coast. Enjoy these early days of summer!

  • Fabs says:

    Winter is long in this part of Canada so the pooch and I don’t always get out at much as we’d like. Once Spring is in the air the two of us are pretty much outside as much as we can till late Fall. I have a Jack Russell, she an older gal now but when she was a youngster it was always an adventure going for hikes and the beach. I’ve had a few dogs over the years, large to small. Dog are the best companions but it’s sad we don’t get to have them longer. I bet your house is non stop action with all those fur babies running around. Frenchies are so adorable and yours are cuter than cute.

  • Anna Egeria P. says:

    Your summer sounds a lot like mine only I have cats too! Thank you for another lovely giveaway! I love the Bogue Gardelia!

  • Ingeborg says:

    Please count me in, I would love to try something new. No pets here, but I admit your dogs look cute. Still a mix of rain and sun here and I really hope it will get warmer soon.

  • Thanks so much for such a generous draw. Love those pups. Spray it forward…lol. Brightest blessings

  • tfk31 says:

    I am thinking there might be room for one of those stinkin’ cute pups in any box of samples you send. 🙂 Ollie ( in my Gravatar pic) would love a playmate. I am in love with the Bracken Woman, so hopefully the Figment will be great too.
    Thank you so much for the chance to win

  • RoseMacaroon says:

    So much fun in one picture! I have no pets, just lots of pet envy atm.thanks so much for the draw, even the chance is enlivending my summer!

  • monika says:

    Please enter me in your drawing! It’s raining cats and dogs here in Florida with no stopping in sight. So depressing… A little perfume therapy is in order…

  • Doc Sinister says:

    Can I win a doggo instead of the samples? My husband foolishly believes that “two is enough”. Fortunately he does not have a problem with me adding perfume to the family.

  • Lisa D says:

    I’m calling this the Summer of Rejuvenation, simply because I’m in need, and hopeful. 🙂 The pups – what a cute pack! You probably don’t even need pillows on the couch with all those warm and cuddly critters snuggling with you.

  • Sapphire says:

    Those dogs are so cute. Almost makes me want a puppy or kitten……naaahhh! Two dogs and two cats are enough and they don’t stay puppies and kittens forever. Thanks for the drawing!

  • mikasminion says:

    Pups! I spend my day surrounded by them at work and never get tired of them. Can’t imagine having more than a couple at a time, though.

  • Heather says:

    Ah, summer is wonderful, especially now when it feels wonderful and full of promise! Thanks for this fun opportunity to maybe smell new smells. 🙂

  • Maggiecat says:

    Puppies! (I’m homebound while recovering from ankle fusion surgery, and easily amused.) Thank you for the draw -and the puppy pics!

  • audesko1 says:

    Happy summer! thanks for the chance to win!

    Happy summer, Patty! I’d love to smell something new.

    Three cheers for summer! That is one cute pack of pups.
    Thanks for the giveaway:)

  • Maureen says:

    I love your dogs, God bless you for trying to keep up with that many. I have a part lab, part border collie named Misty, she is fun, but keeps trying to herd me down the stairs. I can’t keep up with all these new releases…I would love to try them. Please enter me and thanks for the draw.

  • Tiara says:

    Looks to me like someone is whispering possibly mischevious plans to the other two, with the others awaiting their orders! We have been without pets for a while now and there are days when I could easily go adopt. But then I think of how crazy things are here already and I stop myself. Or mention it to my husband who yells, “Are you NUTS?”

  • Bastet says:

    Cute dogs, and thanks for the generous draw!

  • I definitely want in on the giveaway!! Yay, perfume!!

  • AnnieA says:

    Did not know about the newest Amouage. Am guessing it’s fig-based.

  • jackie b says:

    Look at the little flock of dogs! Our local council does not permit more than 2 dogs per household…probably just as well! I have my 2!
    New Amouages….mmmm

  • Katherine says:

    Great giveaway. Love the pups! Have a wonderful summer.

  • Fabs says:

    Grab bag,nice!

  • tiffanie says:

    Such sweet lil puppets! Looks like they are planning something fun. Yay for summer!

  • Marcelo says:

    Thanks for the giveaway, those dogs look like a lot of fun.

  • Rosemary says:

    That is an adorable pack of doggies! Thanks for the draw!

  • Lynne says:

    Correction: It’s 5:00 am. here, I’m half awake, and I can’t spell worth beans. That’s my excuse, at least. Please forgive me, Patty, and readers. Wishing you all a wonderful morning!

  • Lynne says:

    Your’re pups look like children on a summer morning lookin’ for new things to explore and take home to Mom for her to check out ( and probably clean up). Wonderful babes, curious in nature, and so adorable! I love them all. Please count me in for your grab bag. I’m limited on my perfumes, and would love some samples to celebrate summer with.

  • Claudia S says:

    Thanks for the draw! Fingers crossed

  • lena says:

    Thanks for making me smile with that gorgeous pick of your pooches 🙂 And of course thank you for the draw, too!

  • Bill Tse says:

    I love puppies! Thank you for the giveaway. I’d surely love to try the new Amouage(s).

  • Irina says:

    I can understand the “bored” part- puppies are lovely, enjoy the summer

  • Neva says:

    I’ve decided to dedicate this summer to learning new things. I’m attending some psychology courses at the moment and I’d love to try new perfumes of course. Thanks for the giveaway.

  • Despina Veneti says:

    I joyfully participate, a lovely summer to all!

  • Jeanne says:

    Can’t wait to get home to my gardening. Been traveling. I miss my flowers!

  • verbenaluvvr says:

    Love my dogs, but they can be such pests digging in my flowerbed. Daily I am fixing the mess. Flowers and dogs, I must have them both, so they all get to stay.

  • Kelly Cole says:

    Count me in please! Not feeling June yet at all and some new scents will kick off my summer just right. Thank you for the consideration.

  • Yes please! The puppies are SO great. I miss having a dog in the house, but I don’t miss vacuuming up the hair.

  • Elizabeth says:

    Puppies in summer, sounds like great fun.
    Great giveaway. This is my very first comment. Have previously just kept to lurking. The pups won me over today.

  • Stephanie says:

    Love those puppies! And good luck with setting up your garden. Count me in for the grab bag giveaway 🙂

  • Sarah says:

    Impy faced darlings watched over by a sweet bull. What a treasure trove of adorable. Glad you have them to love on. Gardens lacking beloved beasties just feel lonely to me.

  • eldarwen22 says:

    It sure as hell ain’t summer in my neck of the woods. It’s still rainey and cold in Cleveland an not a whole lot of gardening has gotten done. What is going on with Amouage? They’ve been cranking out tons of perfumes recently.

  • eliz88510 says:

    Nice giveaway! Thanks!!!

  • nicevulady says:

    Your dogs are really cute. I have four. I’m trying to do a Spring cleaning. Ugh Ugh Ugh. I really need this grab bag to cheer me up. Two of my children are moving out, again. Thanks for the draw.

  • Rebecca Shyu says:

    Thanks so much for making this giveaway!! So excited!

  • sunnlitt says:

    Glad to hear that you and the dogs are having a great summer!

    I am, with my siblings, trying to clean out my parents’ house after moving our mother to Assisted Living. It has made us all hesitant to bring anything new into our already-cluttered houses.

    The weather is beautiful–not too hot, not too foggy.
    Thanks for the drawing.

  • Thanks for the draw Patty! And kudos to learning how to live with the many doggies in your life. I know how it feels to have to figure that bit out, animal lover though I may be.

  • Koyel says:

    Amouage has really been cranking them out. I didn’t even notice this one. Your puppies are wonderful!

  • Kathleen Smith says:

    What?!!! Another new Amouage? I stay in the know because of the Perfume Posse! I adore learning about new releases; thank you for keeping me up to date with your posts! I live happily with dogs as well. The house is never spotless but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Your babies are adorable, I love that they are one of each color! The squishy-faced breeds are my favorite.
    Thanks for the draw!

  • hajusuuri says:

    The dogs are so colorful together! New Releases! I’m throwing my hat in the ring. Thanks for the draw!

  • Linda B says:

    The doggies are so stinkin cute! I’m looking forward to even a semblance of Spring. Jersey has been cold and damp for weeeeeeeks. Sigh. I’m looking forward to swimming and good corn on the cob and fireflies and the beach and spending time with my children. Thanks for the draw!

  • Patty Pong says:

    I would like a chance at this grab bag. 🙂
