Chanel Gardenia and Tom Ford Velvet Gardenia Perfume Giveaway

Happy New Year! I hope that your year has started off well, and to make it even more so, today we have an amazing giveaway courtesy to Fabienne. The first wonderful part about it is that Fabienne is giving away a bottle of Chanel Gardénia EDP (200ml, 80% full, no box) and Tom Ford Velvet Gardenia EDP (50ml, sprayed a few times only, no box). As you might know, Velvet Gardenia is no longer possible to find, so this is a particularly precious find. As Fabienne says, “these perfumes were gifts. I wore them and tried to like them, but gardenia is not my style. I don’t want to sell them. I want to give them to someone who will enjoy them. I don’t comment often, but I read every post here and I want to give back to Victoria and this nice community.”

The second great part about this giveaway is that although Fabienne is based in the US, she is willing to ship to the US and EU (she can’t ship outside these two zones due to the expense of shipping.) The EU-based winner must accept to wait till late January to receive their prize when Fabienne goes to Europe to visit her family.

Disclaimer: Bois de Jasmin is not responsible for leaks or damage during transit or for lost packages.

Please answer all of the questions below to be entered into the draw. I will create two groups and randomly draw one winner from each.

1. What perfume captures your idea of glamour? What perfume would you like to receive, if you win this giveaway?
2. Are you based in the EU or the US? (No need to specify the country, just the general geographic location to help me organize the draw.)
3. May I contact you via email to notify you of your win and share your email with Fabienne?

The contest is now closed. The winners are Sara A and Marion. Congratulations! I will be in touch with you via email shortly.

I would like to thank our entire Bois de Jasmin community for your generosity and kindness, whether it means giveaways like this, advice or comments.

    I live in NYC.

  • Marianne: Oh what a fantastic offer Fabienne. So generous. I’m not eligible as I live in Australia, no matter, it’s lovely to see this. January 3, 2022 at 7:39am

  • Heather M.: What a generous offer! I would love to win the Chanel Gardenia. When thinking if glamour, Chanel always takes me back to an old-school style. My favorite Chanel is Chanel Chance, I know it’s a more modern Chanel take , but I love that it is an every day fragrance that makes me feel glamorous all the time. My 12 year old daughter has jumped on the Chanel bandwagon and she has been collecting Chanel samples because she loves how special they smell. I live in the US and yes, you can contact me. January 3, 2022 at 8:09am

  • Georgia Bonham: Vintage Cristalle by Chanel is the most glamorous perfume in my collection. It has everything: something grand and old fashioned, it’s fresh yet sweet and has that gorgeous drydown which is something quite animal, bodily and comforting.
    I’d love to add the Tom Ford to my collection! I’m in Wales. January 3, 2022 at 8:15am

    • Victoria: This giveaway is limited to the US and EU. January 3, 2022 at 8:57am

      • Georgia: Oh yes – I forgot! It may not be the time or place but just for the record I didn’t vote for Brexit 🙂 January 3, 2022 at 12:41pm

        • Victoria: You are welcome here regardless! It’s just that post-Brexit, any shipment to the U.K. is subject to customs fees. Plus, shipping alcohol is now more complicated, so I understand Fabienne’s decision. January 3, 2022 at 4:02pm

          • Georgia: I know, understand, have similar issues sending parcels to realtives in Germany. Been an avid reader of your website for a few years now. My first stop for reviews.
            Best wishes

      • Cezarina: Happy New Year, Victoria and group! When I think Glamour I think of Marlene Dietrich era. I am imagining heavy opulent perfume with impossible high sillage. Opium by YSL would fit that in my mind. Could not ever wear it but a diva could. I live in USA. Don’t care about the result if I win, I am here for the comments:) you may contact me of course. January 3, 2022 at 12:04pm

        To me a most glamorous perfume would be one Victoria once mentioned Salome. Also something vintage such as Shocking.

        I live in the US and yes you may contact me via email.
        Thank you Fabienne. Blessings to you both January 3, 2022 at 11:32am

      • Karen Elliott-Grinnell: Thank you Fabienne! Chanel no. 5 epitomizes glamor for me as it was what my mother would wear when going out to dinner with my Dad. She’d don a little black dress, crimson lipstick and her Chanel 5. I would love either of the offerings, as I love gardenias. I live in the US and yes, you can contact me by e-mail.

      The perfume that captures my idea of glamour is Chanel’s 31 Rue Cambon. I fear I will never be able to pull off the glamour required by this exquisite perfume but I happily wear it anyway. I live in the US and can be contacted via email should my name be drawn from the hat. If that lucky occurance happens I would love to receive the bottle of Chanel’s Gardenia. Happy New Year to all!

      3) of course share my contact info!
      Happy new year 🎊🎈💥 January 3, 2022 at 11:36am

  • Hollis Sherman: The epitome of glamour? Chanel Coco. Rich, gleaming, bejeweled- just so luxurious! Sometimes I just wear it around the house so I can imagine a night at the opera as I clean the kitchen!

    I would like to receive the Chanel Gardenia – it must be so beautiful and would help though the winter, as it appears to be Spring in a bottle.

    You may contact me if I win – I live in the U.S. January 3, 2022 at 9:29am

  • Rhinda: Happy New Year Victoria and my perfumed friends!
    1. My idea of glamour in a perfume belong to Eau du Soir and Fracas. I would be happy with either scent. That’s very generous of Fabienne!
    2. US based
    3. Yes, I can be contacted by both of you. January 3, 2022 at 9:33am

  • renate: Happy New Year to this wonderful community and thank you so much to Fabienne for her generosity.
    My idea of glamour is captured by l’Heure Bleue, followed by Chanel N°19 which epitomizes elegance. I would love to receive Chanel Gardenia.
    I live in Europe and yes, Victoria, you may contact me by email and also share my email with Fabienne were I to win. January 3, 2022 at 9:39am

    2. I live in the US.
    3. Yes, of course you can contact me! January 3, 2022 at 9:48am

  • Vy-Vy: Cartier Panthere de Cartier EDP is one of my most glamorous perfumes. I have only tried the older version (the bottle has a glass panthere carved onto the cap) but the current version and brand as a whole feel quite glamorous to me, too. Location: California, USA. Yes to email contact! January 3, 2022 at 9:51am

    • Vy-Vy: Entering for Tom Ford! January 3, 2022 at 9:52am

  • Zeezout: 1. Guerlain’s Vol de Nuit is my glamourous favourite, not just because of the scent, but for its associations. Early aviation is much more truly glamourous than filmstar antics.
    I would love the Tom Ford, which according to Victoria’s review really captures the smell of Magnolia (so difficult to find).
    I live in the EU, and yes, you may contact me. January 3, 2022 at 9:52am

  • Pedro: 1. Nahema by Guerlain. I would love to receive “Chanel Gardénia”, but, if not possible, I would also be very happy with “Velvet Gardenia”.

    Thank you for your kindness! January 3, 2022 at 10:08am

  • Mela: Dear Fabienne and Victoria,

    What a lovely give away! Gardenia has become one of my absolute favorite notes.
    -However for pure glamour, I would have to say Ormonde Woman or Tolu. Unless I’m feeling really larger than life, then…Fracas swirling all the way. I would love to try the Tom Ford Gardenia, a shame it has disappeared.
    -I live in the US
    -yes, either if you can contact me
    Thank you so much January 3, 2022 at 10:09am

  • Loretta Z.: Thank you for the opportunity to participate.

    Happy New Year! January 3, 2022 at 10:10am

  • Heather Chase: 1. Glamour is Frederic Malle’s Carnal Flower. It is not so carnal as to be vulgar, but it demands more assurance and a desire to be noticed as glamorous than does, say, Iris Poudré. I would like to receive Tom Ford’s Velvet Gardenia.
    2. I live in the U.S.
    3. Yes, please contact me by email and share my email with Fabienne. January 3, 2022 at 10:31am

  • Christie O: Happy New Year All! What a generous gift, Fabienne!

    1- Vintage Chanel Coco EDP is the most glamorous scent I have ever smelled and still makes me feel that way. Whether I’m in a fabulous dress or my bathrobe and fuzzy slippers in my mind, I’m the most glamorous person in the room.

    2- I live in the USA.

    3- You may certainly contact me through email and share it with Fabienne.

    Thank you for making me smile this morning. It was fun to think about glamorous scents. January 3, 2022 at 10:32am

    • Christie O: Oops! I got too caught up in the glamorous perfumes and forgot to say I would love to win Chanel’s Gardenia. 🙂 January 3, 2022 at 10:36am

  • Abby: Happy New Year, and thank you for this most kind offer!

    1. As what I find glamorous can shift from time to time, I will stick to what I can remember at the moment: Arpege, Patou’s Joy, Black Orchid, Ma Griffe, Cuir de Russie, Lyric Woman, the older versions of Emeraude. These are my best, but I have much much more! I would dearly love to add the Velvet Gardenia to the collection.

    2. I am in the United States

    3. You may contact me by email January 3, 2022 at 10:33am

  • Nubia Roque: Thank you Fabienne and Victoria for your generosity, this should inspire me to do something similar in the future.
    In the mist of uncertainty and a bit of hopelessness, a fragance can captures a perfect moment in time, for a moment you can be in the mist of a garden, a fragrant bazaar or in the woods.
    I most commonly reach for Chanel #5 if I need to be transported to a world of soft leather gloves pearls, red lipstick and and not too many worries…..
    I love anything Chanel, I live in Los Angeles California and wish you both and whoever wins this giveaway a very good new year.
    Thank you Victoria and best of luck in your fragrant endeavors.
    Nubia Roque January 3, 2022 at 10:34am

  • Megan: What a lovely offer! I am not entering the giveaway myself, but I am enjoying seeing the perfumes that make others think of glamour. Best wishes to all! January 3, 2022 at 10:34am

  • Doretta: 1. L’Heure Bleu always synonymous with glamour–chic, sophisticated, elegant. One of my lost favorites is also Ecusson –timeless elegance. I’d rather the Chanel Gardenia.

  • Jette Akopyan: Happy new year from Vienna. Thank you for the oppotunity to take part at this generous give away, Fabienne.
    1. The vintage version of Chloe by Lagerfeld embodied my idea of glamour and still does. I received ist when I was 19 years young as a gift and it was many years my signature till the formula was cheapened and Chanel Coco took over. Since I am still a flower child and Corona damaged my economical existence terribly, I would love to receive the Chanel Gardenia

    1. Glamour: – I have a vintage Guerlain Vol du Nuit and also Vega that I treasure; I still love Vero Kern’s Onda, Lyric Woman, and recently started to wear 4160 Tuesday Red Queen which is rose/incense and beautiful.
    2. I am in the US and would take either of the two perfumes, have never smelled the Tom Ford one but have smelled the Chanel.
    3. I will share my email January 3, 2022 at 10:44am

  • Genevieve Lalonde-Martini: 1.In general, perfumes with large doses of white flowers are my idea of glamorous. On my shelf, I would likely reach for the Montale Full Jasmine. I successfully grew buttery white Gardenias this year and picked the flowers to perfume my hallway alongside the Diptyque Lys candle, the gardenia are on my facebook profile picture. I think a glamorous home smells of white flowers also…

  • Lisa G.: Happy New Year fellow fragrance aficionados!

    I have so enjoyed following bois de jasmin for years, and am so grateful for Victoria’s gifts to us – her mastery of the world of fragrance, so incredibly shared by her eloquent writing abilities. Such a joy!

    Thank you Fabienne, for your most thoughtful gifts!

    As a hat and glove girl, my choice which epitomized glamour for me is vintage Jean-Louis Scherrer. Whether it be short leather day gloves, or over the elbow satin for evening, JLS has been my go-to scent for years. I somehow stand a bit taller than my six feet when I wear this fragrance, and enjoy the compliments and questions it surfaces when enjoying the company of others.

    I would love the Tom Ford Velvet Gardenia!

    I am located at present in the northeast USA.

    Please do contact me by email, and thank you once again!

  • Trudy Hartman: To me the gardenia is the most stunningly beautiful flower there is. I have gardenia plants in the front of my home which start to bloom sometime in April and continue to bloom through summer and into early fall. The intense fragrance is magical and can absolutely make me swoon! Depending on my mood the perfumes which epitomize glamour to me are Chanel Coco, Narcisso Her EDT (black bottle), Marc Jacobs Woman (a beautiful gardenia) and for the past year or so Chanel Riviera. I live in southern California and would be overjoyed with the Chanel but also delighted with the Tom Ford. January 3, 2022 at 11:43am

  • deborah: 1. Perfume that captures my idea of glamour? Vintage Safari – I wore this fragrance when I got married! and I still love both my husband and the fragrance on me.

    • Cheryl: …and my choice is TF Velvet Gardenia. January 3, 2022 at 12:05pm

      • Howard Byrne: Hi… I’ve been thinking this over for a bit & maybe it’s not just the perfume but the person who’s wearing it that plays a significant part in it too… I know a girl who wears Chanel Sycomore & on her it’s the most glamorous thing ever…

        Thanks to Fabienne for her kindness…

        I would favour the Chanel Gardenia out of the two…

        I live in Liverpool in the UK…

Chanel stands for the best craftsmanship, the best fabrics and other materials and the most precious perfume ingredients that can be found All the perfumes radiate glamour, luxury and history translated perfectly into timeless beauty. All perfumes tell the tale of Chanel, but to me Gardénia IS Chanel, effortlessly chique, very feminine, luscious, creamy, classic and at the same time contemporary. So were I to win, then I would love to win Gardénia.

    I live in France.
    Fabienne, what a wonderful and generous idea! January 3, 2022 at 12:45pm

    3.You can contact me via email and also share it with Fabienne. January 3, 2022 at 12:46pm

  • Tami: Very generous! Thank you for this opportunity.

    1. As someone who was a teen in the 80’s, I’d say that Dior Poison evoked the glamour, style, and mystery that I find appealing. Today I would say Carnal Flower, Portrait of a Lady, or perhaps the *original* Kate Spade perfume that was so, so lovely and full of white flowers. TF Tubereuse Neu is quite glam, too! If I am selected, I would like Velvet Gardenia.

    I am in the US.

    And yes, you may contact me via email.

    Thank you! January 3, 2022 at 12:50pm

    • Tami: And yes my email address can be shared with Fabienne! January 3, 2022 at 12:54pm

  • Cathy Beshore: Oh my goodness, what a kind and generous giveaway!

    I always associated Chanel #5 with glamour. My Mom had a bottle on her dresser, and I would always beg for a spray (so I could feel beautiful like my Mom). She would always smile and give me a spray!

    If chosen, I would be honored to own either bottle.

    I live in the U.S., and you most certainly may contact me by email and share my email with Fabienne!

    Thank you ~ Blessings! January 3, 2022 at 1:25pm

  • Tara: My grandmother wore Estee, I think that and Chanel No. 5 are the most glamorous scents to my nose.

    Oh, this is a hard choice. I think the notes in Velvet Gardenia sound more ‘me.’

    I live in the US, and can be contacted via email. January 3, 2022 at 1:34pm

  • Fazal: Thanks Fabienne so much for your generous gift.

    1. One of the perfumes that is my idea of glamour is Serge Lutens Sarrasins. Sarrasins smells like my idea of a gothic jasmine and is, particularly, suited to cold nights even though jasmine perfumes are usually suited to spring and summer more than colder weather. It is beautiful but also has an element of mystery because I don’t think I have ever smelled a perfume like Sarrasins.

    If I win, my choice would be Tom Ford Velvet Gardenia.

    2. I am in the U.S.

    3. You may contact me by email as well as share my email with Fabienne.

    Have a happy and safe 2022! January 3, 2022 at 1:40pm

  • Charlene Rollins: I’m in my 70’s now and the very idea of glamor has been traded in for other values and tastes, in perfumes included. But when I was a young teenager I would go to San Francisco occasionally with my parents and my father always bought me a gardenia to pin on from one of the many corner flower vendors downtown. I was enchanted, if not glamorized, and I would be enchanted to have either of these perfumes. Thanks for the kind offer. (It was a relatively short trip to S.F., and do please email me). January 3, 2022 at 1:49pm

    • Madelyn Etkind: Hi Victoria and Fabienne,
      Thank you for this most generous offer.

      There are so many perfumes I associate with glamour that it’s hard to choose.
      Ultimately I favor Fracas, Chanel Coromandel and Bois des Îles with allure, sophistication and glamour.
      I would welcome either entry but would prefer the Velvet Gardenia.
      I live in the US.
      You may certainly contact me via email

    The most glamorous perfume I’ve smelled so far is Dusita’s Melodie d’Amour. All white flowers send me swooning. But Melodie isn’t just a bewitching gardenia cloud, it’s got some teeth. It’s done some living & has some stories to tell. True glamour to me is more than mere lush grooming & pretty hair. True glamour’s got wit & style. & possibly a bit of bite.

  • Kit: Hi Victoria and Fabienne, thanks for this generous offering!
    1. In the original sense of the word, I find Patou 1000 glamourous – provocative, yet inscrutable, even mystical.
    A dirty, leathery osthmanthus nestled over a violet chypre, I can’t shake associations with Anjelica Huston (it’s her signature scent), her portrayal of the Grand High Witch, and her modeling work with Serge Lutens in the 70s.
    I would love to receive Velvet Gardenia!
    I am still searching for a true gardenia scent, thick and earthy, that matches my childhood memories of picking gardenias (slightly overripe and browned, with a few ants crawling) for Mother’s Day in southern Louisiana.
    2. US based
    3. Yes, you may email me and share my email with Fabienne. January 3, 2022 at 9:31pm

  • Roxann: How very kind to re gift these and not sell them. I would love the Chanel version of gardenia. My beloved Grandmother (technically a “step”, but I was never treated as such) had gardenia’s growing up the steps to her home. I remember that lovely fragrance when we went to visit. I tried to grow gardenia’s once here in the pacific NW of the USA, but was not successful. I wanted to recapture that feeling of going to Grandma’s house. Reading this article made me think of her, now gone 20 years (how can it be that many years?). My most glamorous fragrance in my collection would be Andy Tauer’s Rose Flash, I work in a school and don’t have the most glam life. USA. Yes, you can e mail me. Thank you for making me think of my Grandmother on this day. January 3, 2022 at 9:45pm

The heat made the gardenias waft waves of glorious fragrance as I walked up the aisle. Even today my friends say that intense perfume reminds them of that day. I’ve grown and adored gardenia for so many years, and to actually have a perfume capturing that day would be blissful. I live in Michigan. Thank you for your generosity. January 4, 2022 at 10:40am

  • Charlotte Barrow: This is so generous! I’m not eligible, but good luck to all entrants.

      When I wear No 5, Farnesiana, Nuit de Noel or Narcisse Noir (and this one is vintage so I’m saving it and not daring to use 😉) as when I’m wearing any old classic, like First, or Mitsouko, Arpege, or modern Lutens like Sarassins, Une Voix Noire or Carnal Flower by Malle, even in old jeans or a nightgown at home, I’m feeling like a glamouros lady.
      Thank you, Fabienne for your very generous offer! January 7, 2022 at 3:57am

  • Sharon O’Grady: What a generous giveaway! I think of Chanel no 5 always as glamourous, but also Coco edp. And perhaps Jasmins Marzipan as a modern glamourous scent.

    Yes, you can contact me via email. January 5, 2022 at 12:35am

  • Hilde: Hi Victoria.
    Fabienne is very kind for this giveaway.

    1) I immediately had in mind Cartier La Panthère as one of the most glamorous perfumes I know. It’s a perfume you need to be dressed up to wear it, I find. I imagine Eva Green, the sophisticated and intelligent actress, wearing it in the publicity for Jaguar.

    I would be very glad to win Chanel Gardenia.

    2) I live in the EU.

    3) You are welcome to contact me by email. January 5, 2022 at 3:08am

  • Frances: Thank you Fabienne for this generous giveaway and thank you Victoria for organizing the draw.

    1- To me, L’Heure Bleue is the most fascinating and beautiful fragrance ever made and sure it is glamorous but personally I see it more as a poetic master piece. When I think of glamour I think of sophistication, sensuality and mystery…Glamorous fragrances are the sirens of the screen of scents, they are Ava Gardner embodied in a perfume. So I would say: Shalimar of course and Nahema obviously. And of course Coco. May I add, for the sake of collective imagery, Chanel n°5 (big fan of Marilyn Monroe here) even when to my nose it is more elegant than glamorous.

    If I win, I’d like to receive Tom Ford Velvet Gardenia. At the risk of sounding fragrantly uneducated, I’ve never smelled a Tom Ford fragrance and I’m willing to change that.

    2- EU based.

    3- Yes, of course, you can contact me by email. January 5, 2022 at 4:24pm

    2. I’d like to receive Chanel if I win
    3. Live in EU and happy to be contacted

    Sheila January 7, 2022 at 2:46pm

  • Ken: 1. To me, glamour requires a degree of being off-kilterr juxtaposed with elegance—disheveled lace and pink satin side-by-side! For this reason, I think Boudoir by Vivienne Westwood epitomizes my idea of glamor: a near-fallen star chain-smoking in a rococo dress. — As a white floral lover, I’d be happy to receive either fragrance, but I’m partial to Velvet Gardenia.
    2. US.
    3. Yes, you may contact me by email and share my email with Fabienne. January 8, 2022 at 10:54am

  • Kait: Glamour for me can seem almost intimidating in and inaccessible. It might take some thought to oneself what makes something glamorous?
    Am I glamorous?
    It speaks of golden age of Hollywood bright lights, blonde hair, glittering diamonds, weddings that might never occur but you see them in countless movies-
    Thin women cascading down church steps-with with handsome men.
    Glamour is understated and again slightly intimidating -beautiful in its design-simple with statement pieces that can take your breath away.
    Alluring and again and inaccessible and that is why I’m choosing the Lily as my featured perfume because as a floral note it is not available to Perfumers in nature – it has a noli me tengere must be composed with care -if not it can look and smell very not glamorous and that’s my glamorous Perfume is
    1. CHANEL NO. 19
    2. I live in the US
    3. Thank you so very much for this thoughtful contemplation on glamour and perfume
    Fabienne and Victoria January 8, 2022 at 4:15pm

    • Kait: I did the comment above -meant I thought Chanel 19 was glamorous but I would love to be entered in for the Chanel gardenia perfume probably a little too late. 🙁 January 10, 2022 at 7:54pm

  • Audrey H.: 1. What perfume captures your idea of glamour? Chanel Coco always makes me feel a touch of glamour.

    What perfume would you like to receive, if you win this giveaway? Tom Ford Velvet Gardenia has been on my wish list. It was one of the special ones that got away.

    2. Are you based in the EU or the US? I am in the US
