All Christmas in a Day

I love the idea of the 12 Days of Christmas, with a gift each day, right up to Epiphany. Alas, our world today rarely allows for that. So I’m going to jam All Twelve Days into One Day – today – with TWELVE GIVEAWAYS!!!

All of these are curated from The Messy Armoire and I am thrilled to share the Fab with you. Best gift of all? They’re already set up to get mailed asap, no faffing about, trying figure out where I put them (imagine that!!)

Here’s the lineup, in no particular order (and not a lot of descriptors because we’d be here all day):

  • A little suite of vintage minis, including Miss Balmain, Joy and an Uncle Serge
  • A set of Bruno Acampora The Essences
  • A Discovery Set of my beloved Liz Zorn’s Signature Naturals

Sooooo many goodies….

  • An amazing sample set of Amanda Feeley’s Esscentual Alchemy line
  • A Surrender to Chance sample pack of O’Driu &Xerjoff
  • A lovely boxed set from the lovely Mindy Yang’s Club code/deco
  • 3 different batch iterations of Chanel LE Bois des Iles
  • A gorgeous carded sample group of Ramon Monegal’s shimmering scents
  • A selection of Carded samples from Parfums Quartana (they are glorious)
  •  Another selection of carded samples from Parfums Quartanaaround
  • Yet another selection of carded samples from Parfums Quartana
  • A fab little sample tray filled with goodies from the Messy Armoire. Some vintage finds, some current. I stuck my paw in – what came out went into the tray, which is a pretty win from Brooklyn Fragrance Lover, aka Carlos Powell.

Whew! I’m worn out just typing this! The Girl is going to break the keybpard, poking it for winners. To enter, tell me what’s going on in your world!! Winners will get the prize associated with the order they’re chosen, from 1 to 12. Best of luck, everybody!!!


  • Hi! Just wondering if you have selected the lucky winners. Smile I was just going to sadly assume that I wasn’t one, but thennnnn I decided … Maybe I just missed a notification?

    Well, hope Springs Eternal.

    And I hope you all are well!

    work … yeah, work … and spending time with the child back from uni for the hols. and discussing stuff with the architect… and no more xmas shopping. except food 🙂

  • Jennifer S says:

    Whew. Work, work and more work this time of year!

    Just had a refrigerator issue resolved where we bought one and had it delivered just before Thanksgiving. There was an issue with it so we wanted to exchange it for the same model without issues. Well, after a couple of failed delivery attempts due to bad weather we finally got it in yesterday and I can’t tell you how freakin happy I am not to hear the door open alarm going off every three minutes anymore! I am sane again! Well. Maybe. Lol!

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway. Happy Holidays!

    Whoa that’s a lotta goodies in one day!

    I went to a historic hotel which is majorly into Christmas and Moravian Stars, it was lovely and I think I got all of my (nonparticipant) Christmas spirit in there.

    I’ve been helping a friend’s grandfather move, while trying to get a handle on my own overflowing teeny place. 

    Not all that much happening other than trying to stay on top of things…been doing a lot of learning and percolating, and also making an effort to put myself out there when the opportunity arises and appreciate the people around me while they’re still here.


    Thanks for the chance! Happy holidays all

  • Riv says:

    Wow that’s a lot of prizes. Would like to win any out of these!

    My world right now is an exchausted place also known as “a week before holidays”. Just trying to keep my eyes open basically. Spritzing some Atelier Cologne fruit fragrances now and then to perk myself up 😀 (I live in Finland, winters here are dark and gloomy.)

  • Rustee45 says:

    I’m currently scrambling to get the few last Christmas gifts delivered.  Thanks for this chance!

  • Dina C. says:

    I need to write and send out some Christmas cards with gift cards to my far away nieces and nephews, wrap a couple more gifts, and then I will be all set on the gift front. Then I can turn my mind to cooking and baking. I’m doing a quiche for Christmas morning this year.

  • rosarita says:

    Ms A, you’re so awesome and generous to do 12 packages, thanks for the chance! I’m immersed in elder care but my sister arrived last night so I’ll have a little break to visit friends and relax. 

  • Anna Egeria says:

    I have always celebrated Christmas for 12 days and I give myself a little gift on Twelfth Night. It will be a decant of a new fragrance. I’d love to have anything from this lovely draw! Wishing everyone here a beautiful holiday season!

  • Pam says:

    What a month it has been and it’s not even Christmas yet! I spent today at a seminar for work, then a quilt bee, followed by a holiday lunch with a group of friends. Tomorrow I’m traveling to visit my mother, who is in nursing care. Maybe things will slow down in the new year. Happy Holidays, Posse People!

  • Anniea says:

    Wow, twelve prizes!  Well I went to a classy Nicolai event hosted by Scentrique. It was in an art gallery for extra class. I also went bonkers at theYves Rocher BF sale and have a bub of Rose Oud before it’s gone forever. 

  • Elizabeth Watson says:

    Posse peeps, I just fell by to say hi. I retired from my 31 yr. job last week. I only want to say you all smell fabu. And for please sake, Musette, don’t enter me in the draw. I’ve no more room for fumes, anyway. Always readin’ you. XO

  • Koyel says:

    Thanks for the giveaway 🙂 What am I doing? Well, I’m getting sick because work has been so incredibly stressful that it’s been giving me stomach ulcers and suppressing my immune system. Also trying to find time to make the homemade Christmas presents I decided to give friends back before work got so busy. Looking forward to some days off next week!

  • Maggiecat says:

    What I am doing is trying to recover from the flu quickly enough so that we can leave on our annual pilgrimage to visit family Back East.  Tomorrow, we hope.  It’s been a rough year and a challenging holiday but still a happy one. Because, you know, Christmas.

  • nicevulady says:

    I’ve just finished a three day performance of The Messiah with our symphony and am now getting ready for another concert this weekend.  I have gifts to wrap, food to cook, etc etc etc and no time. Merry Christmas to all. Thank you for a very generous draw.

  • ScentSpirit says:

    Baking and wrapping. My immediate family includes Christians, Buddhists, Hindus and Jews so we all celebrate everything. Everyone can get on board to celebrate a holiday that honours hope, joy, love, faith and family! Oh yeah, and food. 


  • hajusuuri says:

    Ooh, nice lineup!  I’m trying to keep my head above water.  I kept thinking I have more time but Christmas is a week away! ?.  Thanks for the generous draw!

  • Mindy Grazulis says:

    Just one more week in retail holidays are over!! Working extra hours and sharing the love of the Scentilicious!!! Ahhhh ~ Liz Zorn is one of my faves!! Thanks for all you do and this generous draw!!

  • Kathleen says:

    Wow, what a generous draw!  The holidays are quickly approaching and I am trying to stay ahead and be prepared.  We already celebrated an early turkey dinner with some family here in Colorado and are leaving to spend Christmas with my sister and Mom in Arizona on Friday.  Warmer weather, here we come!  Merry Christmas to all!  And hug your sweet Girl from me.

  • Aww. My original post direct doesn’t seem to have gone through, so sorry if it double posts.

    I just finished up working in a haunted attraction. Interesting use of scent, especially in the toilet scene. I can’t even describe it.

    It was literally 120 degrees in my costume, so I wore medical grade lavender to manage the dreaded body odor. snigger

    Ahhh, but I did get a Fright! I fell … and being silly, hoping it would just magically get better, I delayed going to the doctor. Yep. I’ve a broken shoulder.

    It makes me cuss. I could definitely use a pick me up … ’cause I know Santa ain’t bringing me NOTHIN’!

    I hope you, dear perfume posse, are happy and healthy 


  • taxi says:

    What a great idea! You’re so generous & all those are lovely gifts. I’m avoiding the holiday hoopla stuck at home recuperating from foot surgery a couple of months ago. (Looking forward to burnng the crutches soon.)  Meanwhile, netflix & Amazon prime + re-sniffing perfumes & edt keep me relatively sane.  

  • Claudia S says:

    Just hanging in there, working at school. Fighting the good fight. 

  • Erica says:

    What a great giveaway!  Trying to stay cool in the Australian heat – 40+ degree plus days here atm and a long summer ahead.  I subscribe to BFL – I think he’s both hilarious and knowledgeable.  Would love to win any but Chanel, the vintage minis, Surrender to Chance, Ramon Monegal all stand out. 

  • Tara C says:

    All quiet on the western front here, trying to keep warm. Thank you for the lovely drawing. I would love to win the vintage minis or the Liz Zorns. 


    Need to do some baking, decorating and go to the PO but I am sooo lazy!

  • MMKinPA says:

    What an amazing giveaway! I’m just trying to survive one more day of preschool teaching without contracting my usual death illness for Christmas. Starting Wednesday I’m off until January 2; a blessed break from little kid germs!

  • Gina says:

    Thank you for your holiday generosity. I adore Mr. Carlos at BFL. He’s a good man. My world is sick sick sick. I’ve been in bed for four days. On antibiotics today. Have to go to work tomorrow. At least I can still smell!

  • HeidiC says:

    Thanks for the fun draw! Fingers crossed for the Liz Zorn or the random armoire goodies! I just finished grading final papers and posted final grades for all my community college courses, so now I can haz a few days to veg out before the holiday mayhem commences. I foresee eating cheese and binge-watching something trashy.
