Random.org has spoken, and I have the names of the two winners for the perfume giveaway kindly provided by Neela Vermeire Créations, Parfums Paris (“NVC“).
Grand Prize: to FeralJasmine! One full bottle of Mohur Eau de Parfum (retail cost: $250 for 55 ml/1.85 oz at Luckyscent), along with a sample vial of Ashoka Eau de Parfum and a sample vial of Mohur Extrait pure parfum.
Second Place: to SultanPasha! The “Try your India” sample set (Trayee, Mohur Eau de Parfum, and Bombay Bling), plus one sample of Ashoka and one sample of Mohur Extrait pure parfum.
You have FIVE (5) days to contact me with your shipping information which I will then forward on to Neela Vermeire. Deadline is end of the day, my time or Central Standard Time in the U.S., on September 20th. Please send an email to Akafkaesquelife @ gmail . com (all one word, scrunched together). If you don’t, and if I fail to hear from you within the deadline, I will give the gift to the next person on the list, and/or move the winners up by one.
Neela Vermeire Créations will send the prizes directly to the winners, and pay for all shipping costs. Given that NVC is located in the Paris, it may take some time (up to 14 days, depending on your location and Customs processing) for you to receive your gift. It may take even little longer if your country has really nightmarish customs issues. Neither Neela Vermeire nor I am responsible for items that are destroyed by customs or that are lost in transit for some reason. The Grand Prize cannot be replaced.
Thank you again to Neela Vermeire for her generosity, kindness and thoughtfulness in offering two fantastic gifts. I really hope the two winners will let Ms. Vermeire and me know what you think of the perfumes when you receive them and have the chance to try them. For everyone else, you can always order samples of Ms. Vermeire’s creations from Luckyscent or, in an even better deal, directly from the Neela Vermeire Creations website. (If the e-store is not loading for you, you can send an email to order either of the two perfume sets.) Thank you to everyone for stopping by, and may the fragrant winds take to you India.
Congratulations for the winners. Sofia & Walter.
Thank you for entering, Walter.
Congrats to the winners. But damn, I was so close!!! 🙂
You were so close! Houndie! Woof!
Very close! If I don’t hear from both winners, you’ll be moved up the list as next in line. 🙂
Is it bad to send out bad vibes into the universe to get what I want?? :|~
LOLOL! It’s certainly very human! Alas for your chances, both winners have contacted me and their addresses sent on to Neela Vermeire. I’m sorry, hun. But I really hope you get to try Ashoka soon. xoxox
I’m not worried about that. I’m just worried that I’ll buy a bottle!
Dear Hound, please don’t bad-vibe me, because I love dogs and couldn’t handle hurt looks from a dog’s eyes. My own dogs know this and are able to get almost any treat that they really want, but I’m not sure it would work if the treat in question were from Neela Vermiere ;-).
Congratulations to the winners! Damn, it’s hard to be a gracious loser in these situations! 😛 Enjoy the beautiful Mohur, FeralJasmine; and to SultanPasha – enjoy the sample set!
Thank you for entering, Kevin.
Wooooooohooooooo!!! Yeah baby! 😀
Sincere thanks to Neela Vermeire and good ol Kafka for the prize. I can’t believe I won something! What a truly wonderful Monday! God bless you! 😀
Email me with your contact details and I’ll send it on to Neela Vermeire. She should be back from Pitti Florence any day now.
😀 Congratulations, Sultan! I have a suspicion that you’ll love Trayee! I don’t know how you feel about roses, so I don’t know what you’ll think about the Mohur Extrait, but I think it’s a stunner. Trayee, though, I think may be very you. I can’t wait to see what you think of them all!
Dude I looooooooovvvvvvveeeee roses. My ultimate love amongst all the smellies I own has got to be the rose saturated Amouage Lyric Man and Homage attar. However I’m always on the lookout for something to trump these two especially after their recent reformulation 😦
your description of perfumes in general is very visual, which I can relate to and comes very close to my tastes so in term of Mohur I may very likely fall for it.
I’ve a certain affinity for iris and fig so Ashoka is one I’m very curious to try especially with its other notes.
Trayee sounds very interesting almost like an Indian spice market caught in a monsoon storm at the darkest part of the night.
I will most certainly give my feedback as soon as I lay my hands on the beauties. Thank you again matey!
Congratulations to the lucky winners! What a treat 🙂
Thank you for entering, hun. I’m sorry it didn’t work out for you.
Thank you for entering and trying, Lucas. I’m sorry the odds didn’t work in your favour.
I’m not good at winning anything 😉
Congrats to the winners! Enjoy!
Thank you for entering, Patricia. I’m sorry it didn’t work out in your favour.
Congrats to the winners! That’s a great prize.
Thanks so very much! I am mind-blown. Kafkaesque, I have emailed you my address. Again, many thanks to you and Neela Vermiere for your generosity.
You’re very welcome! 🙂 Congratulations and enjoy!
Congratulations FJ !!
Awesome. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to Ms. Vermeire for her generous gifts and Kafka for the wonderful hosting.
Kafka, I found I couldn’t stop at one comment! This ray of beauty and generosity beaming into my day is a lovelier feeling than I can make clear. And to all the rest of you, until now I was always the one who never won contests, so keep entering, you never know!
Reading your reaction gives me greater joy than you might guess. I’m utterly thrilled that it made you so happy. I don’t know you or your tastes, but I hope at least one (or more) of the scents wrap their way around your heart. Really so happy for you!
PS — Since you’re having such a lucky day, it might be a good time to go buy a lottery ticket! 😉 😀
