Random.org has spoken, and I have the names of the ten U.S. winners for the perfume giveaway so generously provided by LM Parfums.
I input all the names into Random.org, and its machine has spat out the list of winners. Without further ado,the first ten people chosen at random are: VickyPW, Edward G., The Scented Hound, WeFadeToGrey, Carla Meiners, Cohibadad, Hunter, Two2aHorse, Sara, and Xtopher!
Congratulations to all of you! [Edited to add: In total, 68 names were entered, as indicated by the comment shown that “there were 68 items in your list.”I merely did a Screen Capture of however many names would fit on my list, but that isn’t the complete list. In other words, there were more names shown below #22, but I could only “grab” that amount to show. Please don’t think you weren’t entered simply because I didn’t “screen capture” all 68 names, or the order they came in.]
Each of the winners will get ONE decant 5 ml bottle of my favorite new perfume in many a year, Hard Leather. You have until the end of TUESDAY, February 25th, to email me your shipping information. Please send an email to Akafkaesquelife @ gmail . com (all one word, scrunched together) with the necessary information.
If I fail to hear from you within the contact period deadline, I will give the gift to the next person on the list, and/or move the winners up by one.
I will take care of all the shipping and costs. I plan to go to the post office to ship your packages out by Wednesday if all goes to plan. So, you might want to add on another 5 business days from February 26th before you get your package, fingers crossed. On a side note, I’m always paranoid about things getting lost or damaged in the mail, so perhaps you might email me when you receive your package to let me know that it arrived safely, intact, and without leakage? As I said, I worry about these things.
For that reason, I would like to emphasize that I am not responsible for items that are destroyed or lost in transit for some reason.
I would like to thank LM Parfums‘ owner, Laurent Mazzone, for his enormous generosity, kindness and thoughtfulness in offering ten fantastic gifts. This is very expensive perfume, and it also has been extremely hard to obtain in the U.S. until now, so he really wanted to give more people the chance to try it. I hope the winners will let me know what they think when they receive it. I know the raunchy Hard Leather won’t be for everyone, but I hope a few of you find it to be sex on stick or, rather, sex in a bottle.
For those who weren’t so lucky in the giveaway but who live in the U.S., Osswald in New York appears to have finally received Hard Leather in its store. Finally! It’s still not listed on their website, but they sent out a Tweet yesterday to announce the perfume’s arrival. You can always try calling them to order samples. You may not be aware, but Osswald has a special deal (that they keep rather quiet about) which is limited to those who call them at (212) 625-3111. They offer 10 samples of 10 perfumes in 1 ml vials for $10 with free domestic shipping. It is only available by phone and to those in the U.S., so it is one way for you to explore the LM Parfums line since none of the decanting stores offer the perfumes. Also, as a side note, I will be reviewing LM Parfums’ Black Oud (a much better version of Puredistance’s BLACK, if you ask me) and the floral woody Vol d’Hirondelle in the upcoming future as well.
Thank you to everyone for stopping by, and may the fragrant winds always keep you safe.
