HERMÈS Un Jardin Sur le Nil Giveaway Contest Winner Plus Your Favorites

Congratulations to Susan DeB! She was selected by to receive the HERMÈS Un Jardin Sur le Nil fragrance. Susan was notified by e-mail. Susan got two entries because she's a Twitter follower, making her twice as likely to win! I'm still getting the "knack" of Twitter, but I'm having fun out there. It sure is time consuming, though, to read or scan all those tweets when you follow a lot of people!

HERMÈS Un Jardin Sur le Nil is one of my favorite fragrances. I wear it all the time. Its name evokes the mangos of the fertile Nubian region of Egypt. However, it's so much more complex than those overly sweet mango fragrances that abound. It has notes of lotus flowers, shown on the box, sparkling citrus fruits (definite grapefruit), and something very green. There's a very slight woody note that comes from sycamore. Although billed as unisex, I think this fragrance is very feminine. From the moment you spray it on until later in the day when you still get a whiff, it's feminine charm is undeniable. I hope Susan will like it!

Susan's go-to fragrance is Bond No. 9's Chinatown. My "little poll" results were interesting. Most of you turn to different fragrances. There were very few repeat selections in your choices. Estee Lauder's Beautiful was one repeat. There were too many entries for me to list all of your favorites, but here are a few that you are wearing: MARC JABOBS Daisy, MARC JACOBS Lola, MARC JACOBS Rain, Missoni Acqua, Armani Code, Jo Malone Dark Amber & Ginger Lily, Jo Malone’s Vanilla & Anise, Victoria's Secret Dream Angel, Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel, Chanel No.5, and Estee Lauder White Linen. What variety! I enjoyed reading about your selections!

Thank you for entering! We will start another giveaway contest tomorrow. Come back, please!
