Random.org has spoken, and I have the names of the fifteen winners for the huge Muguet Fleuri perfume giveaway so generously provided by Oriza L. Legrand Parfums (“Oriza“).
There were 92 people who entered, and Random.org selected the following 15 names:
Shawna Lisk, Stephan, Ana (A.), Rnocean, The Ascetic Libertine, Carolyn Gudgel, Nemo, Imelda, Caroline, Malmaison, Tora, NancySG, Megan in St. Maxime, Maybell, and Anita M!
Congratulations to you all! You will each get ONE 10 ml travel spray of the new Muguet Fleuri from Oriza L. Legrand.
You have THREE (3) days to contact me with your shipping information. I will then forward that information on to Oriza in Paris. The deadline is end of the day, 11:59 p.m. Central Standard Time in the U.S. on Monday April 21st. Please send an email to Akafkaesquelife @ gmail . com (all one word, scrunched together) with the necessary information.
If I fail to hear from you within the deadline, I will give the gift to the next person on the list shown above, and/or move the winners up by one.
Oriza will send the prizes directly to the winners. Given that the company is located in the Paris, it may take some time (up to 2 weeks, depending on your location and Customs processing) for you to receive your gift. It may take even little longer if your country has really nightmarish customs issues.
Neither Oriza L. Legrand nor I am responsible for items that are destroyed by customs or that are lost in transit for some reason.
I would like to thank you Oriza’s two owners, Hugo Lambert and Franck Belaiche, for their enormous generosity, kindness and thoughtfulness in offering so many wonderful prizes. They have put their heart and soul into Oriza, trying to stay true to its great legacy, working to keep it relevant in today’s modern world, and doing it all on their own. I wish them nothing but the greatest success, and I fervently hope that this giveaway sparks more interest in a venerable house that goes back almost 300 years.
I also hope the winners will let me know what they think of Muguet Fleuri when they receive it and have the chance to try it.
For those who didn’t win today, you can always order samples of Oriza’s creations directly from the company. Almost all the fragrances (except for Foin Fraîchement Coupé) come in a sample set that costs €9 for a total of 7 fragrances, each in a 2 ml spray vial. Oriza’s international retailers are also listed at the end of this post.
As a side note, if you are the U.S., Luckyscent will soon carry the entire Oriza line — including the new Muguet Fleuri, the soaps and candles, sometime this week. If you are in New York, you can always try Oriza’s fragrances at JuJu s’Amuse, though I don’t know if they’ve received the new release yet.
Thank you to everyone for stopping by, and have a lovely weekend.
OMG! I’m so stunned and happy to be one of the winners! Literally pinching myself. 🙂 I just sent you an email with my information, Kafka. Thanks so much to you & Messieurs Lambert and Belaiche for this generous gift!! I’ll definitely write in and let you know what I think!
I can finally write in about this, having given it some time. I wasn’t familiar with lily-of-the-valley scents prior to this one, and I have a feeling I will be spoiled for life because this one is so, so *good.* And I say that as someone who generally doesn’t want to smell like a garden. But everything you wrote in your review, about how it’s basically a spring forest in a bottle, is absolutely true. I didn’t know how I’d feel about it at first–it starts out so floral, in a way that seems almost indolic, if that can even be what I smell–so I knew I’d have to give it a few tries. I’ve always worn it on warm days. On a day when I was anxious, it gave me that nice feeling of zen you said you got from it, and I was really grateful for that. More recently, things have gotten a bit rough, and my usual spring go-to’s were not cutting it, not even my beloved Orange Sanguine. I’m so sad right now, and the weather is finally warm and sunny, and nothing in my tiny perfume arsenal was appealing or seemed right and then I remembered the Muguet Fleuri and I grabbed it like a life raft, and it is the perfect choice. So for that reason and many more, I’m so glad I was one of the winners, and so glad I have my 10ml of this. I think it’s going to get a lot of use. Thanks again, Kafka.
I’m so, so very pleased to hear that you love it, my dear. How wonderful! I only wish that it were cooler weather right now for you, so you could see how it would work in that sort of environment. I suspect it would be much crisper and fresher, instead of possibly “indolic.” (I’m not sure what you mean by that in this context.) Regardless, I’m so glad that you’re enjoying it. 🙂
Congratulations to the winners!
Congratulations to all the winners!
Turns out it was a good idea to have jumped on that Split, after all!
Congratulations to all the winners! Can’t say that I’m not muguet green with envy, though!
Thank you and Hugo Lambert and Franck Belaiche!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Congrats, happy winners. Let the rest of us know what you think of it.
Oh dear heavens, I can’t believe I’m number 16 on the list! Bummer, but congratulations to the winners!
Well, all it takes is one person not giving me their address by the deadline, and you’ll be next. 🙂 But I already have 8 names/addresses that I’ve sent off to Paris, so maybe you can just drop Hugo a line and ask to buy a sample of Muguet Fleuri. I’m sure he remembers you from your visit to the store. 🙂
My dear Vagabond, one of the winners did not contact me within the designated time period. So, you’ve been moved up and are now one of the winners. Can you send me an email with your contact address?
Oh joy! I’ll do it right away! 😀
Thank you so much for the awesome prize Kafka ,Hugo Lambert and Franck Belaiche!!So happy to be one of the winners. Sooo curious about the Muguet I recently fall in love with Chypre Mousse and I need Full Bottle and Horizon was also good so I’m curious to try another scent. Muguet Is one of my favourite flowers and note in perfumes:) Thank you 🙂
Congratulations to the winners! Love to know what you think. 🙂
Yay,I’m one of the winners!And isn’t it amazing that before knowing this,I was actually wearing Chypre Mousse all day?Thank you,the details email has been sent!
Yay, think I’m a winner as well–can’t wait!
Muget Fleuri arrived already! Did a quick test this morning, and staying power, sillage and quality of materials are all very good. I always test pre-shower in case I hate something, so it’ll be interesting to see if it develops over time (it was LOTV soliflore during the time I had it on). Thanks again.
You’re very welcome. I hope you like it.
Thank you so much! I am thrilled to be among the winners. This is awesome!
Congratulations lucky winners! 😉
Congratulations to the winners! 😀
I am so excited to win this. I can’t wait until it arrives! If like to say thank you to Oriza for the generous sample and Kafkaesque for having the drawing!
