Calvin Klein BEAUTY Eau de Parfum Quick Giveaway Contest

Congratulations to MoonRae!
Calvin Klein's BEAUTY Eau de Parfum is a modern, floral fragrance. BEAUTY is said to evoke sophistication, glamour, and strength. With a new interpretation of the lily flower's fragrance, its heart notes of "neo-lily" bloom with feminine beauty. Ambrette seeds enhance the scent's spicy warmth while conveying the presence of a powerful woman. The loveliness of jasmine elevates BEAUTY's floral signature, drying down to unforgettable notes of cedarwood. These layers come together to radiate a hypnotically iridescent trail.

BEAUTY is composed with Lily, Absolute Ambrette Seeds, Jasmine, and Cedarwood - all great scents in my book. Even if it's not your own style, maybe your mom would like it. Mother's Day isn't far off.

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 saw the ads in the best magazines when BEAUTY was introduced. Kruger was every bit the blond goddess. I have the 3.4 ounce size ($85) to give away, so I decided to do a two-day contest.

How can you enter to win this contest (technically a sweepstakes)? Just leave a comment on this feature (not in another BTiB post). After you comment here, feel free to send me an e-mail at bestthingsinbeautycontests@gmail.com (the contest address, not my "personal" e-mail) and identify your comment. You can never be too careful about sharing an e-mail address you care about on a blog, so feel free to follow this step (an alternative is to code your e-mail, e.g., myname at gmail dot com, in your comment). Please make sure I have your e-mail. If I can't notify you, you can't win - even if your number is drawn.

You can earn extra entries. Follow this blog (through an e-mail subscription, GFC, or though one of the many Google readers - see sidebar at right) to earn a second entry. If you are a follower, it would help me tally entries if you tell me in your comment how you follow. You don't have to follow to enter. I want everyone to have a chance, but I also want to reward my followers. I must be able to track this entry.

You can earn a third entry by tweeting this contest. You must include "@BTiBeauty" (without the quotes) and the contest title in your tweet. Remember, tweet the contest title - if you don't, that entry won't count. I will tweet the contest this evening, and you can simply retweet it to earn that second entry - if that's easier.

The deadline for entries will be Saturday, April 21, at midnight. The next morning, I will use a random number generator (random.org) to select the winner. I will e-mail the winner on Sunday morning. The winner will have 48 hours to reply to my message and provide a shipping address. After 48 hours, the prize will be forfeited, and another winner will be selected. Make sure to check your e-mail - and look in your spam folder - when the contest ends.

This contest is open to anyone anywhere. Here are the terms. I will carefully pack and ship the prize (as I always do). I cannot insure the prize for overseas shipment - it's amazingly expensive to do so because of the way I have to send insured mail. If it's lost or stolen in transit, I may not be able to replace it with another prize just like it. I'll do my best on this end; let's see if your mail service does right by you on the other end if we have an overseas winner.

For all the legalese related to this contest, please see the Contests/Sweepstakes page at the top of the blog. Good luck!

For years, I've been wearing the same perfume, unwilling to try anything new. However, not long ago, I received one of those sample tubes in the mail and it accidentally opened in my hands. I was shocked. It smelled wonderful. Now I'm really into trying as many perfumes as I can get my hands on. If the perfume is as nice as the bottle, I'm sure it will be fabulous. Thanks for another great giveaway. Good luck to all.
