Bois de Jasmin’s posting schedule will be light for the next two weeks. My family is visiting, and I look forward to spending time with them. Meanwhile, here is something special. Our reader Karen would like to find a home for a 3.3 fl. oz bottle of Carven Ma Griffe.”I would like to donate my bottle of Ma Griffe for a giveaway if you think it would be something people are interested in. It is not vintage, still have the box and little has been used. On the bottom of the box it has Ref:20100 and also 11J23. Made in France and ingredients – including oakmoss – are listed. Try as I may, I just can’t get it to work for me. Originally, I bought it as a reminder of my grandmother who had a box on her dresser. No memories of a fragrance connected with her, so don’t know if she wore it.”
Karen’s Ma Griffe can only be shipped within the US, so I will draw two winners–one for the US and one for the rest of the world. The second winner will receive a 1/2 oz decant of Ma Griffe from me.
The contest is open to our readers worldwide, but it goes without saying that neither Karen nor I are responsible for leaks or damage during transit, customs fees or lost packages.
To participate, please let us know where you’re based (just the general region, no need for a specific town or country) and answer Karen’s question. “I bought it solely based on my (non-scented) memory of my grandmother, so I would be curious to know what perfume have you bought based solely on a memory or some other romantic or nostalgic reason?”
The contest is open till the end of the week.
I also want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has generously contributed to these giveaways. If anyone else wants to participate, if you have unwanted perfumes that need a new home, please contact me.
