We’ll do a draw at the end of the day Thursday for 3 winners of one sample each of our two new scents: Wood Violet and Vintage Rose. Just post here on the blog that you’d like to be entered or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and you’ll be entered in the draw.
Tell me your favorite rose and/or violet perfume while you are at it! I’ll start by saying I have a huge list of favorite rose scents, but some of my favorites are Guerlain Nahema, L’Artisan Drole de Rose, Rosine Poussiere de Rose, Creed Fleur de The Rose Bulgare, and my new Vintage Rose. For violet, I love Serge Lutens Bois de Violette, Drole de Rose (which counts as both rose and violet to me), L’Artisan Vert Violette, and my new Wood Violet.
The photo above is a Ballerina rose in my garden. It’s a single rose rather than a rose with many petals, so people often don’t recognize it as a rose when they first see it. This shrub rose blooms many times over the summer season, covering itself in pink blossoms with a white eye and yellow stamens. Marjorie Fair is a similar shrub with red blooms instead of pink. They have no scent, but are still wonderful in the garden and form a large crop of hips in the fall if you don’t deadhead after the last fall bloom.
So, let me know if you’d like to enter the draw! It’ll be open for a couple days, until Thursday evening.
