What's your favorite perfume?

Perfume affects people in different ways. I am stating the obvious, I know (hehe). A perfume may cause sneezing and other negative physical reactions. But then, let's not focus on the negative.

One thing that I like about perfumes: they can alter body odor. Perfumes  give you the luxury of smelling the way you want to. They also affect your mood and boost your self-esteem. You feel good because you know that you smell good.

My favorite perfume is Beautiful by Estee Lauder. I've been using this since I was in college. It has the fragrance of a thousand flowers. It gives off a strong and rich scent. My friends and acquaintances always tell me that I smell so nice every time I spray it on.

My other perfumes include Eternity, Escape, Gucci Envy, Provocative Woman. My sister, on the other hand, likes the following:

My mom likes Beautiful and Sensi.

Ok, so this blog is not giving away any of these perfumes.

BUT I am giving away  a Banana Republic perfume. It's called Modern (for women). It has a very subtle scent. I think Banana Republic discontinued production of this perfume. Fortunately, my sister was able to buy one when she went to the U.S.

In my previous post, I promised that I would be giving away a Banana Republic perfume. Well, I still am. But you have to head over to Grafflink's blog. Grafflink is launching her blog and I suggested that she should hold a giveaway to gain followers. So, instead of giving this away  in my blog, I am donating it to Grafflink.

Please join. The mechanics are really easy.

New GC Winner!

I held another raffle. Why? Because the previous GC winner, until now, has failed to get in touch with me. I already sent her a message through  GFC. Also, I announced the winner on March 7, 2011,  so  I think I have given her enough time to contact me and claim her prize. The GC will expire on May 31, 2011, this is why I am keen to send it immediately to the winner.

Also, I'm sorry that I have not included any time frame regarding claiming of prizes in the giveaway's mechanics. I just didn't expect that this situation will arise. Anyway, I did an old-fashioned raffle for the second time.

So, let me announce the new winner!

Congratulations, Patricia!

You are the new winner of the Bistro Filipino GC worth Php 1,000.

Please get in touch with me within 5 days. If you don't e-mail me within 5 days, I will be compelled to forfeit the prize.  I know I'm being so strict here. But doing the raffle for the third time is no longer an option.

I hope to hear from you the soonest possible. And again, congratulations!

Congrats, GC Winner!

Here's how I did it. Those who did steps 1-3 got 3 entries each -- commented on the post (1),  followed my blog (1), liked GraffLink on FB  (1).

I held an old-fashioned raffle - wrote the names on used paper then cut and fold each entry. It was time consuming, I know. But then, I don't want to use the randomizer. Why? I'm biased. I never won in a random raffle (LOL)

Anyway, enough of the chitchat. Without further ado, let me announce the winner...

Congratulations Dementia!

Please e-mail me your complete address and other contact details so that I can send the GC to you. My e-mail address: amaranthus815@gmail.com

To all who joined. Thank you very much!!!
