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.
