Celebrity fashion and accessory lines are very popular right now. There are also so many new celebrity endorsed and/or designed fragrances coming out that it's hard to keep up. This is a great way for perfume makers to promote a new scent by attaching the fragrance to a well known person. A promotion technique we all like is sweepstakes and sample giveaways. We can try before we buy. For those who live in Australia, Kate Moss Parfums is sponsoring a sweepstakes to win prizes that include fragrance and clothes from the Kate by Kate Moss brand . You can also get a voucher for a free fragrance sample by referring friends to the sweepstakes. Enter at this link. The sweeps ends on January 2, 2008 at 11;59pm (AEST) (*The website had the dates as Nov 2007 to Jan 2, 2007 but that must be a mistake???)
For U.S. residents, Allure magazine invites you to enter for a chance to win a bounty of fragrances – 18 of the best scents! Enough to share with some very grateful friends. Sweepstakes ends 11:59 P.M. EDT 11/30/07. Enter at this link or this one.
A rose by any other name might smell as sweet to Juliet, but the language of fragrance can confound the rest of us. ("This scent is a watery ozonic." "This one has fresh, minimal top notes.") Sounds like jargon to us. Perfumer Frédéric Malle makes sense of it all in Allure's November issue (page 102), and names his top picks in each category. One Allure reader will receive all 18 of them—including Cartier Must de Cartier, Lanvin Arpège, and Malle's own fragrances Bigarade Concentrée and Noir Epices—worth more than $1,500. Enter today and you could score the ultimate cult-fragrance collection.
