Yeah, that’s right, we have been brainstorming, and there’s a cloud of smoke and fumes coming off of our collective brains that is just fierce.
It is time for some Perfume Posse gear and just good perfume slogan gear, so we have a double contest to get us there.
First part of the contest — what do we put the slogan on? We are thinking t-shirts are… out… too many sizes, just difficult to plan for without spending a small fortune. Maybe we’ll do that later once we become a worldwide perfume-reviewing conglomerate *heavy snark*. Well, yeah, the t-shirts are right out. So the potential choices are good-looking ball caps, the ones that fit closer to the head and aren’t “trucker” hats — which mystifies me why those ever came back in style. They are worn by farmers and truckers, usually covered in dirt, sweat and completely bent out of shape. No self-respecting farmer ever wore a brand new hat anywhere but out to the field to break it in. Sorry, off topic… again. So a hat, a USB jump drive, a mouse pad, a travel mug — insert your entry here. If you can come up with something else, that’s a part of the contest. Suggest your idea for “thing to put it on” in the comments, and the thing that we wind up using will be put up as a choice for you to vote for the winner.
Second part of the contest — logo. Maria and Elle already have entries, even though they don’t know it. I hope i wrote these down right, but Elle’s is “Life is short… perfumes are many.” Maria’s entry is “So many perfumes… only one skin.” Those are the first two entries, and we are looking for more! We’ll leave the comments open for a week to take entries. Once it is closed, we shall confer and vote and narrow it down to a manageable number, and please don’t be hurt if we don’t take yours — there are no hurt feelings in perfume. But as incentive to have you give it your best shot, I’ll have another drawing from those making an entry in either phase of this today, and be giving out their choice of two Serge Lutens samples.
We’ll then take the slogans and the “thing to put it on” in a vote for all of you to decide. The winner of the slogan contest and the winner of the “thing to put it on” contest will each get the first “thing” we put the slogan on, plus a couple of perfume sample goodies I’ll put together as a thank you for everyone’s entry that gets used in the vote.
Okay, you clever people and even unclever people, the comments are open for your submissions. And if you think you are unclever, give it a try anyway. I was so unclever as a child, my my daddy always used to tell me … even a blind hog finds an acorn every now and then.
