Results Of The 300th Bonkers Post & 100th "Follower" Giveaway!

I am delighted to announce the winners of my multiple milestone celebratory giveaway on Bonkers. I had recourse to on this occasion, not the usually amenable Mr Bonkers Spontaneous Number Generator (he was engrossed in a computer game and I sensed wouldn't give it his all), nor the intriguing helmet / bowl / unidentified rusty receptacle pictured in my Valentine's post.

By the way, there are enough pens for all three winners to have one, if they turned out to be popular, and unless you all go for the same three scents, we should be okay on the decant front too.

There is one new bottle of Lidl Suddenly Madame Glamour, but I also have a barely used one, in the unusual event of there being a mad scramble to choose this item as a prize... : - ) (SMG is also available as a decant in the set of 3 x 3ml.)

And if anyone has gone right off the idea of perfume, or even a cunning and unique pen/perfume atomiser hybrid, I can also mention again the option of a back up prize of Jasper Conran Woman Bath & Shower Gel (100ml), of which there is a short review here.

And on the offchance that one of the winners may have given up washing entirely in response to the commenter on Candy Perfume Boy's recent post about perfume in the workplace, who suggested that people who wear perfume and scented products are ashamed of their bodies and natural odours, I can also offer winners the alternative of an (unscented) reporter's notebook in black. I am sorry to "report" that on close inspection this essential accessory for the perfumista on the move does not appear to be moleskin, however on the flip side it does boast a flip up top(!), 192 ruled ivory pages, an inner back pocket and a nifty elastic closure.

Oh, and everybody automatically receives a sample of Belinda Brown Blessings EDP unless you tell me otherwise.

So without further ado, the two winners from amongst those who left a comment are:




And the "follower" / member - sorry, we never did find a definitive term for these (presumed) readers - chosen at random to win a prize is:


Congratulations to all three of you! : - )

The next step is to drop me a line at with your prize preference, including the names of your chosen 3 scents if you would like to go for that option, together with your name and address.

If I don't hear from you in the next day or so I will endeavour to contact you, and failing all else I will hold a redraw on my return from London at the weekend.

Yayyyy! (I'll assume that this “Alynsie” is me? :P) I just wrote you! I promise I'll try to keep this de-lurking going. :) Thank you so much!

Hi Alnysie

You are the one and only - apologies for misspelling your name in the post, which I have now amended!

And I got your email, thanks, and will get decanting shortly. Those are great choices for winter if I may say so. I am a bit of a champion of Flower Oriental, of which Robin of NST is also a fan. It seems to have been rather overshadowed by its more regular Flower flankermates.

Congratulations again! : - )

Oh *I'm* the one who should apologize for choosing a username that confuses everyone! :) Thank you so much!

Hi Alnysie,

I think I have got the hang of it now. Your parcel is ready and due to be sent tomorrow!

I must apologise in advance for the very boring black insulation tape on the decants - my local hardware store is very conventional in its choice of colourways... : - )
