Amazing Calvin Klein Fragrance Giveaway Contest with Three Prizes

Congratulations to our three Calvin Klein fragrance winners! They were notified by e-mail. Lisa won Beauty, Kelly won Euphoria, and Tanya904 won Euphoria for Men.

This has to be the ne plus ultra of giveaways! We have not one, but three Calvin Klein fragrances to give away just in time for the holidays, including one for the guys. How good does it get? I'm really excited about this and hope you will be too. Please tell your friends!

The generous PR firm Attention USA is sponsoring this contest. I'm rushing the giveaway into print so that we can get these gifts to the winners before Christmas. Whether you decide to use them yourself or give them to special people on your list, one of these ought to put you in the holiday spirit!

Calvin Klein's BEAUTY ($50-85) is a modern floral fragrance that evokes sophistication, glamour, and strength. With a new interpretation of the lily flower's fragrance, its heart notes bloom with femininity. Absolute ambrette seeds provide a spicy warmth while conveying the presence of a powerful woman. The loveliness of jasmine, one of my true fragrance loves, elevates BEAUTY's floral attributes, and the dry-down is punctuated with unforgettable notes of cedarwood. These layers come together to radiate a hypnotic trail.

Beautifully feminine, its curvaceous bottle rests on a luxurious glass heel, suspending the fragrance inside a luminous sphere. A metallic silver ring embraces the glass bottle, expressing the modern sensibility we associate with Calvin Klein.

Diane Kruger is the "face" of BEAUTY, lending her classic glamour to the advertising campaign. I'll bet you've seen the ads in the best magazines. She looks like a blond goddess. We have the 3.4 ounce size to give away. It has a retail cost of $85.

Calvin Klein's Euphoria ($45-78) is an entirely different fragrance. Come nightfall, Euphoria is about sexiness and fantasy to jazz up your holiday festivities. Euphoria speaks to the woman who has the urge to break free from everyday life and put on a provocative fragrance - to be part of an exciting world filled with pleasure, surprise, and temptation. Euphoria is a contrast between exotic fruits and seductive florals, and a perfect signature scent for the confident woman looking for a rich, creamy, guy magnet.

Did you know that men adore pomegranate? I don't know what it is, but I don't know a guy who isn't attracted by pomegranate. Some wear it; others burn pomegranate candles; others like to nuzzle in on it. Euphoria has pomegranate notes, along with persimmon, greens, black orchid, lotus blossom, champaca flower, amber, mahogany wood, black violet, and a cream accord. The fruits and woods marry perfectly to please the woman who plans to be a tigress when she sprays on her fragrance. We have the 3.4 ounce Euphoria, worth $78, to give away.

For the man in your life, we have the 3.4 ounce Euphoria Men ($68). Described as mysterious, tempting, and exciting, Euphoria Men creates a fantasy world, revealed in a pure aromatic oriental blend with crisp and spicy accents - a sexy, rich signature for the modern man. It has top notes of ginger, pepper, raindrop (fresh), and sudachi. The heart is composed of black basil, cedar leaf, and sage. The base notes are suede, patchouli, Brazilian redwood, and amber.

In his review at Now Smell This, Marlen wrote that Euphoria Men shares the sweetness of Euphoria, but is pleasantly tempered by warm woods and green herbal notes. Perfect for the smooth, sexy man in your life!

Right now, while supplies last and through December 31, you'll receive a complimentary box of chocolates with every 3.4 ounce purchase from the Calvin Klein Euphoria Collection at Macy's - and they are delicious. How tempting! These fragrances are available at many fine department stores and specialty stores nationwide.

So, is this the fragrance motherlode? How can you enter to win? To enter to win this giveaway contest, just leave a comment here once, telling us which of the three prizes you would prefer to win. I can't guarantee you will receive your first choice, but you could be one of three lucky gals - or guys, if any of you men are reading.

After you comment, feel free to e-mail bestthingsinbeautycontests@gmail.com and identify your comment. You can never be too careful about sharing your e-mail address on a blog, so I would follow this second step if I were you (an alternative is to code your e-mail, e.g., myname at gmail dot com, in your comment). That's what most of you do.

You can "earn" a second entry by tweeting this contest. Just make sure to include "@BTiBeauty" (without the quotes) in your tweet. I will tweet the contest soon, and you can simply retweet it to earn that second entry. You can earn a third entry by following the blog - either here or on Twitter (any entrant who is already a follower will automatically earn the follower point).

The deadline for entries will be Monday, December 13, at midnight. The next morning, I will use a random number generator (random.org) to select the three winners. I will e-mail the winners at that time. The winners will have 24 hours to reply to my message and provide a shipping address. After 24 hours, the prize will be forfeited, and another winner will be selected. Please note the short response time. We want to ensure that you get your prize before Christmas because it will be prime shipping time.

The contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada. Given the issues of shipping fragrance by air, we can't ship this overseas. It's considered a hazardous substance. Sorry! Such is the state of shipping today.

Good Luck!

My sincere thanks to our friends at Attention USA (and Calvin Klein Fragrances) for these generous holiday prizes for you!

Liz said...

Beauty sounds really lovely, and I would love to try it. The men's perfume sounds delightful too, though. Hmm, decisions!

Wanda said...

To be truthful, I would be happy just to win anything fragrance wise since I'm a perfume junkie. Either BEAUTY or EUPHORIA would me make one happy gal. Thanks for hosting this giveaway.


Ashley said...

Wow - fantastic giveaway! Beauty was already on my fragrance wish list, so that would be my preference. But I've sampled Euphoria before and like it as well!

tanya904 said...
