Happy Birthday to The Candy Perfume Boy! – One Year Anniversary Giveaway

Happy Birthday!
Happy Birthday!

I can hardly believe it but today marks the first birthday of The Candy Perfume Boy! It only seems like yesterday that I was tentatively tapping away at my keyboard to write my first full-length review, an apt choice of Guerlain’s Shalimar Parfum Initial for my inaugural post I feel, and now here I am 365 days later with a blog that turned out to be one thousand times better than I ever thought it would be.

Over this last year I have been overwhelmed by the response the blog has received, in that time I’ve received over 180,000 hits, published 194 posts and obtained 3,859 comments! But more importantly than all of the stats and numbers is the friendships and interactions I have developed with my readers in that time, you are priceless and this space would not be the same without you, yes that’s right, you!

So in order show my appreciation I thought I would celebrate with a little giveaway. The prize is a collection of decants from my personal stash and includes my favourite perfume discoveries from the last year. These fragrances have been those that have impressed me the most since starting this blog and I wanted to give you the chance to try some of my “big loves”, I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

The Prize

Inside the grab-bag you will find:

A 2.5ml sample of Guerlain’s Shalimar Parfum Initial
A 2.5ml sample of Amouage’s Honour Woman
