The Puredistance Giveaway has ended, and I have the names of the ten winners!
TO SUMMARIZE THE GIVEAWAY:
A satin bag containing one (1) sample spray vial of Puredistance M, and one (1) sample spray of Puredistance Opardu. Ten (10) people will each get ONE (1) satin bag containing one 2 ml vial of “M” and one 2 ml vial of “Opardu.” The giveaway was open to anyone who follows the blog and lasted one week. I used Random.Org to choose the ten winners who are…….
THE WINNERS ARE:
1st: Yulina 2nd: Undina 3rd: Debbie Baylor 4th: Cacomixtle 5th: Gabriel 6th: Elsa 7th: I-Ryan 8th: Emma 9th: Cookie Queen 10th: Lewis Nesbitt
I thought Random.org would send me a cool little photo thing of the generated list for me to show you, but it doesn’t, so you shall have to settle for this:
WRITE TO ME!
Please contact me with your address so that I can forward it on to Puredistance in the Netherlands. Email me at AKafkaesqueLife @ Gmail dot Com (all one word, squished together and with a period in place of the “dot.”) You have THREE DAYS until Friday, May 17th, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. Central Standard Time (CST) in the U.S. (which is -6:00 GMT -Greenwich Mean Time). If I don’t hear back in time from one of the winners, their prize will go to the next person on the list.
PLEASE DON’T FORGET THE PHOTO:
Please do not forget Puredistance’s one small request to each winner upon receiving their prize:
1) take a nice (creative) photo of his/her satin pouch and spray vials, and post that photo on either your Facebook status or on Twitter; *AND*
2) tag Puredistance at the same time. (ie, @Puredistance on Facebook, or #Puredistance on Twitter.)
Obviously, there is no way to check if you have or have not, so we’re going by the Honour System here. 🙂 But it’s a tiny request from a wonderful perfume house that not a lot of people know about, so I think it would be nice to get the word out, don’t you?
Puredistance is paying for all the shipping and they will ship directly to all the winners. Given that Puredistance is located in the Netherlands, it may take some time (up to 10-14 days depending on when you sent me your address, your location, and Customs processing) for you to receive your sample bag. (It may take a little longer if your country has stringent customs issues and/or you’re far outside Europe.) Neither Puredistance nor I am responsible for items that are destroyed by customs or that are lost in transit for some reason.
Once again, I’d like to express my enormous gratitude and thanks to Puredistance for choosing my blog for their giveaway. Their generosity, kindness and thoughtfulness in also offering so many bags is absolutely incredible. And to the winners, I hope you enjoy the perfumes!
A thousand bussis.
Hi there! The email given didn’t work. Is there one I can try?
I could be wrong but I think there’s an “a” missing. Try akafkaesquelife with the rest of the address.
Congrats to you and everyone else!
Yes, thank you SO much, Poodle! I wouldn’t have even realised without your comment. I checked the post 3 times before publishing it but I’m so tired these days that I must have missed that one. Thank you for bringing it to my attention and for helping out poor Gabriel. xoxoxo
Happy to help. 🙂
Glad you didn’t mind.
Heavens, no, I was bloody grateful!! What a thing to make a typo on! Thank God for you and your keen eye! xoxox
My apologies. I was posting at the wee hours of the morning (here, for me) and I’m a little sleep deprived. I accidentally left out an “a” in the damn email address. LOL. The correct address is: AKafkaesqueLife @ Gmail . Com (all one word, squished together). Again, my apologies. Look forward to getting your address and sending it on. 🙂
While you’re in the correcting mode you should probably also fix the deadline’s date: Friday will be May 17, not 13 😉 (you need more sleep!)
On a separate note: thank you for the giveaway hosting 🙂
LOL! I definitely needed more sleep. And thank you so much for pointing out the date issue! It’s corrected. I appreciate it enormously, Undina. 😀
Dates, numbers – leave it to me to notice 🙂
Congrats to the winners!
Ooooh, really?! Well, that somehow just totally made up for my laptop trying to die this morning!
Congratulations to the winners!
Wow, thank you so much. I never win anything. Been wanting to try this for ahead.
You’re very welcome, though it was all thanks to Random.Org. lol. I hope you will come back and let me know what you think of the “M.” 🙂
I wasn’t sure where to post this…so i’m putting it here. hope thats ok.
I nominated you for The Versatile Blogger Award. I love reading all your reviews and you’ve opened up my eyes to a whole new world of perfumes:) I’ve never in my life owned so many samples!lol
You’re so sweet, Jackie! I was actually just reading your post and laughing at your spider phobia. I’ve got a cockroach one, the big gigantic, Palmetto bugs that are about 3 or 4 inches long (not including antenna or wingspan). The only difference is that I don’t try to kill them. I just scream, run and hide. LOL. Funny stories aside, thank you for including me. I’m truly honoured. And very, very touched. I shall have to think of my own list now. 🙂
P.S. — I hope there are at least one or two in those samples that are tempting you to get a full bottle from sheer love!
It’s my pleasure!! I’ve learnt so much from you:)
Yuck! I’m not sure what I would do if I saw a cockroach but I have a feeling it would involve screaming!LOL!
I did find love with Chergui! I have literally one drop of the sample left. I tried to order a bottle from Lily Direct but they don’t ship to Canada…but according to their customer service, within the next month or two they will be 🙂 My back up plan is to get my brother to send me a bottle…he lives in the States too.
Oh, that’s fantastic news about Lily Direct and Canada. Please let me know when they institute this change so I can let other Canadians know too! And YAY for Chergui! I think you may want to add Parfum d’Empire’s Aziyadé to your list of potential sniffs too. That one may be your cup of tea as well.
I did a happy dance when they told me:) I will add Parfum d’empire to the my list too:
