Contests Winners and Announcements

First of all, I have to apologize for taking so long to announce the winners of SmellyBlog's recent contests. One of the contests is still open (more in a minute), and some already have winners!

Following up on the Annick Goutal trivia question, Theresa is the winner of a cute little purse spray of Annick Goutal's Songes EDT (I will perform the illegal act of decanting it myself). Congratulations, Theresa! Your prize will be on its way tomorrow.

Theresa is right: Elizabeth Taylor was sued by Annick Goutal for the use of the name Passion and now her perfume is called Elizabeth Taylor's Passion. As much as I love Songes and the brand of Annick Goutal, they seem to be into suing for name rights for perfumes (I am sure many of you remember the battle over Extrait le Songes by l'Artisan). I am surprised Annick Goutal brand was never sued for using names such as "Vetiver" or "Neroli", so often used by other brands...

I am still waiting for more SmellyBlog logo votes to come in before I announce the winner of an Opium Fleur Imperiale bottle (100ml) - the limited edition from last year. There are more than 200 people visiting SmellyBlog daily, so it's impossible to think that only 10 people will vote here. Surely more of you have your own opinions. So please, will you share them with us, please? The contest details are here, and you can either vote for:
logo no. 1
logo no. 2
or logo no. 3

Please leave a comment on the post showing the logo you like. The draw will take place May 31st, and the winner will be announced than. I am going to add more prizes (drumroll...):
1) Opium Fleur Imperiale (100ml)
2) Complete collection of my Vetiver Mods which were discussed quite elaborately on this blog
3) Sample set of 4 of the newest perfumes from my collection - Coralle, Tirzah, and two others that will remain secret for now except for the lucky winner...

Thanks so much for the Songes. I've never tried it, so am really looking forward to doing so. I like the 2nd logo with the nose. A little bit funny, but subtle, and goes well with the vibe of "Smellyblog"!

Hi Ayala,

I LOVE logo number 2 with the nose! It's funny and fitting with an elegant sense of humor. I love reading your blog -- thanks!
