All I want for Christmas is… Perfume

I don’t feel like doing a Christmas gift guide this year, there are many other blogs and websites where you can find those and they’ll be done way better than my guide. But if I happen to come across something fragrant that’s worth your attention, something that becomes a lemming as soon as you look at it,  you’ll be the first ones to hear from me. And I just did find something pretty!

Among hundrets of niche perfume brands JUL ET MAD is one of my favorites & has a high place on my list; I’m always excited to read about their new developments. They’re also a perfect example of thinking about perfume lovers and clients in general. The brand is more high-end and luxurious, their awesome fragrances are crafted with high quality essences, but you have options to choose from.jul-et-mad-coffret

If you don’t need a full coffret with a sparkly flacon you can pick a minimalistic version – a perfume in a sanded glass bottle in a plain box (called Love Basics). But that’s not all, if 50 ml is too much you can opt for a sleek black travel spray – Le Compagnon which holds 20 ml of the perfume. JUL ET MAD also offers you a possibility to try their line through 5 ml miniature. Could it get any better?

Oh yes it could! And it does! That mini, known as Love Dose have just gone through a total metamorphosis. From now on they hold 7 ml instead of 5 and have been repackaged into elegant & handy vials with sprays (instead of splash). Get a separate one (€25-28) as a perfect stocking stuffer or one of two available coffrets (€115-145) to gift more luxury. Plus they are refillable too!

The previous week you had a chance to free your imagination and creativity to come up with a perfume name and a key-note that a possible JUL ET MAD fragrance could have. Submitting entries finished last week and today, one week from then it is time to announce the three winners! I’d like to say that everyone did great, Julien, Madalina & I had a hard time picking up from among so many brilliant suggestions but we finally made our choice (that’s why it took a little bit long.)

The winners are:

  • Once in a Lifetime, a tobacco perfume suggested by Davis Brandao
  • Papillons en Hiver, an oriental perfume suggested by Anka
  • Fourrure Lunaire, a fur-inspired perfume suggested by Asali

If you’re one of the three winners please make sure to contact me (via contact form) before Sunday, December 8th at the latest, providing your complete shipping details and your choice of Jul et Mad Love Dose miniature. If I don’t hear from the winners before the fixed date, I reserve the right to pick another winning person. Congratulations to the winners and thank you to all participants!
