July Grab Bag Giveaway!

Cream French Bulldog CoraAll the puppies with their new collars and bows.  I know it’s hard to believe, but about 2 hours after I put them on, those bows were filthy and are now in the wash.

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 Papillon Dryad and the two new Dusitas – La Douceur de Siam and Le Sillage Blanc.   Drop a comment to be entered, and I’ll draw from commenters for two sample grab bags.

    yay for puppies.i would love to try some new smells : )

  • Rachel W says:

    Would love to try these. Curious about Dryad, even though there have been a lot of comparisons to a classic perfume I don’t love — Vol de Nuit. Would also take a puppy.

  • katrin says:

    Beautiful puppies! I hope I am not too late to take part in the giveaway. Would love to sniff something new.

  • Jenbat says:

    Can’t pass up a chance to try a Dusita! I wish I too were surrounded by a gang of puppies! My cats are very reserved and will not stand for bows.

  • Nicole says:

    What sweet bows! My dog was too furry for anything cute like that to show up. Thank you for the drawing!

  • Julie R says:

    I haven’t had a new perfume in forever! I’d love some samples!

  • Pats says:

    Puppies and perfume – perfect!

  • taxi says:

    Puppies are adorable warm, wiggly, laugh-inducing, playmates, soon to grow into loyal companions. It’s probably to late to enter the draw but just wanted to share love for the pups.

  • Gail Scott says:

    Wait, you have puppies? Happiness. I’ll enter the draw, thanks!

  • RoseMacaroon says:

    Puppies are entirely too cute!! I love all the Papillons… thank you so much for the draw!

  • Nemo says:

    The puppies are adorable!! Thank you for the giveaway 🙂

  • Kate E. says:

    Thanks for the draw & please throw my name in. I think 2 hours is about as long as a bow ever lasted on either of my (human) girls, so that seems like the right lifespan of a bow!

  • Nelle says:

    Puppies are so cute! This a great grab bag giveaway, please count me in!

  • monika says:

    Oh my gosh, how cute are the pups! Nothing like unconditional love and joy! Please enter me in the giveaway!

  • Constance says:

    Puppies in bows and a grab bag giveaway! Happy things <3

  • tiffanie says:

    Adorable photo! Love the look of pure puppy joy on that little face.

  • Kathryn says:

    Sweet puppies! I put bows on my cats every now and then. The bows tend to stay clean because the kitties usually manage to wiggle out of them within a few minutes. Thanks for the draw!

  • Patty Pong says:

    As a cat person I’d like to enter, thank you. 🙂

  • Jennifer says:

    Those puppies sure look like a fun handful!
    I’d love to give some samples a sniff. It’d be exciting to discover a potential “fbw” one!

  • Wanda Balandiat says:

    What a wonderful way to travel via fragrance samples!

  • Laura Bynum says:

    I had no idea that I’d be able to tour the world via scent via samples (God bless Surrender to Chance, too!) until I found your website about a year ago now. It’s like finding out there’s another color in the rainbow. Thank you for following the passion you all put into this site, and for sharing your ‘vision’ of these scents with your readers. All the best, Laura Bynum

  • Kathleen Smith says:

    I love to see photos of your babies! I’m happy to hear the bows ended up in the wash and not eaten by somebody! We did bowties at my boxer boy’s first birthday party and one went missing 🙁 I just heard about Papillon but have not tried the fragrances yet, please enter me in the draw. I’m always enjoying the fragrance journey and olfactory knowledge.

  • J. Tong says:

    It’s good you are starting them with bows so early! It’s too late for me — I can’t even get a Santa hat on my furbaby for more than half-a-second.

  • HeidiC says:

    I am DYING to try the new Papillon — Dryad sounds like an old-school Guerlain chypre, with some galbanum and smut. Mmmmm — sign me up!

  • Miriam says:


    Please Count Me In I am so behind on even knowing what new releases are out there. Need to catch up on the blogs.

  • Neva says:

    I’d love to try something new because I’m in search of a new perfume love. It’s been a while since I fell in love with a new fragrance. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Our last dog could keep his bow clean for hours only because he wouldn’t move until it was removed!

  • Tami H. says:

    SQUEE!! Puppies AND perfume! Would love to smell Dryad!

  • Koyel says:

    Ooh I’d love to try Dryad. Those puppies are adorable. I absolutely believe that the bows turned filthy almost instantly 🙂

    Dying to sniff Dryad, thanks for the draw and the cute puppy pix!

  • janebkrn says:

    I love trying new scents. But the smell of puppy breath and Frito feet are awesome.

  • Leigh Allen says:

    I have a pug who is 14 years old. Love her dearly. Would love to try some samples, too! Thanks!

  • shiva-woman says:

    I’ve been itching to try Dryad too. I’m waiting on a puppy until we move up to the hills permanently on the ten acres we’ve been clearing. In the meantime, we have six (6!) cats which includes one lovely sweet kitten. We’re pretty full-up at the moment. Thank you for the drawing!

  • Edward says:

    Fun! I havent treated myself to samples in forever, Throw my name in.


  • Melissa says:

    I might have squealed with glee at the puppies. I’m just getting into fragrances, so I’m all over the chance to get my nose on anything that I can. Thanks!

  • Sarah says:

    Bows in garbage, puppies in lap. Sounds like a winning exchange to me. You are all kinds of lucky Patty with all that adorableness.
