Hermes Ambre Narguile giveaway



Edie took us out to a few leather bars on SoMA, and I was very proud of Dave when he took off his shirt to reveal his own natural sweater. Although I'm one chromasome off from most of the patrons, I would guess we all appreciate some of the finer things in life including bears, beers and pinball.

It's harder trying to share someone else's fantasy that is not your own. That's the case with Ambre Narguile. Acknowledged as a masterpiece by monsieurs Burr et Turin, it is a prime example of a beautiful scent that simply does not work on me. I know that Turin claims that "personal chemistry" is a load of nonsense, but from experience I find that my skin magnifies ambers and musks to Japanese Disaster Film proportions. Sweet, decadent, and exotic, Ambre Narguile looms very large olive skin. With this baby cranked up to eleven I smell like fresh baklava in an opium den.

So please give it a good home! A 4ml glass vial just for you. Tom? Gaia? My numerous teen groupies? If you'd like it, post a comment, and I'll pick a lucky recipient at random.

Usually when my hubby or friends and family don't like a scent, I love it!! And vice versa, so I'd probably love it:)

Hi quitecontrary,

I'm glad that you smell good in musks. I have a theory that the fairer the skin the better the musk wears. Your peaches & cream complexion would be perfect!

(I don't want to be accused of being the Leni Riefenstahl of scent bloggers, but in my experience melanin and oils help "fix" scent. Great for us swarthy citrus lovers and the fair musk fans)

Hi Rachel,
Look at that pretty tummy of yours! And I must say that's the hippest Wal-Mart dress I've ever seen. I honestly didn't think I'd get more than one response, so I'll have more giveaways soon. Good luck!

Paper Girl,
What incredible pushies! Oooh, this is so exciting, I never knew who was reading, and it's a thrill to finally see all of your blogs!

Robbon Rock Star,

And I never knew we had a ribbon rock star in our midst! I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy!

This is so exciting, I'm thinking I'll have to do another giveaway on Monday.

3boyzmom,

I'll bet you'd love it. Almost everybody does, and I would love it on someone else. I love having a frugal mama in the mix, and I adore your blog design. How did you get your blog so fancy?
