So, for today’s GIVEAWAY, I’m going to drop a bomb on you - which is that I’ve been wearing a Victoria’s Secret fragrance in heavy rotation amongst my usual obscure niche favorites. CONTEST OVER THANKS FOR PLAYING!
I got Bombshell as a sample at VS and of course I tried it (I try everything), and I got really into it sort of in spite of myself - because I don’t think of myself as a “sexy” fragrance person.
On paper, this fragrance is a fruit floral: passion fruit, peony and vanilla orchid. But … do you you guys know what a lenticular is? One of those old-school plastic picture card things where you look at it at one angle and see one picture, then the image changes at another angle. That’s really what this is like: once on your skin it’s very dynamic … at one moment it’s soft and milky like Ralph Lauren Blue (one of my favorites of all time); at another it’s directly sexy in that it evokes a man … something about it is a dead ringer for L’Eau D’Issey Pour Homme which a lot of hotties from my life wore at one time or another.
Anyway, it was a Fifi award winner (that’s like the Oscars of the fragrance world), so I feel validated, because I think it’s brilliant too.
This week you can win the Deluxe Gift Set ($96 value), which contains a full size EDP, a cute little mini EDP (stocking stuffer for someone in your life?), and the body lotion and body wash.
TO ENTER YOU MUST COMPLETE BOTH OF THESE STEPS … 2. Leave a DISQUS comment below and tell me WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE BOMBSHELL? COULD BE MARILYN, ANGELINA, YOUR MOM… ANYONE! I think mine is Anita Ekberg. Don’t comment in “Ask Me Anything.” Contest ends next Friday December 16th, 2011 at 11.59pm Eastern. If you subscribe or follow to enter, you must be subscribed or following at the time of the drawing. XO
