Hey Hey Hey APJ!

As you may know we have been moving house, repainting, reorganising, decluttering etc to sell this apartment. Well during that madness I’ve found a few larger samples that did not get used, the sheer weight of samples and full bottles in this house would give you pause to think about my sanity, or lack of.

A favourite Independent Fragrance House, SmellBent makes affordable, fun filled fragrance that is both beautiful and sometime quite challenging. Owner Brent Leonesio is quite the hunk and has a super brilliant LA white smile and last time I caught up with him electric blue hair.

Today on APJ we are giving away a supercool set of mostly discontinued SmellBent samples.

FrankenSmellie s13#916: Absolutely no idea what this is meant to smell like. I’m getting incense, wood, resins, some unnamed florals and musk. I think there may be some honey or something else quite sweetly animal.

Gimme A Break!: My skin amps the musks in Gimme A Break and it smells like a hookers Christmas panties, tenacity is extreme.

Ice Station Zebra: Resins and musk, a little bit of Vicks Vapour Rub too. I don’t get the zebra…

Pere Noel Coward: Dry, dusty, woodpile with the teeniest hint of syrup and a nod to the sauna.

Winter Vixen: Imagine the yummiest chocolate mud cake ever with rich chocolate, butter and cream icing. You have just been to the gym, you get home all sweaty and disheveled, you are taking a bite….

Till Valentines Day Feb 14 you can get FREE SHIPPING with SmellBent orders over $30

Go to it crew,
Portia xx

    Jasmine tobacco and the note is…not a jasmine blooming or tobacco, but sandalwood!

  9. Lauren B says:

    I follow by email. I checked out a few smellies – the florist’s fridge sounds intriguing to me. Amongst other things it has “buckets of chilled flora”. And now I want to buy it… see how you did that to me?

  10. Anka says:

    Hi Portia,
    I follow via email, thanks for the draw!
    It’s hard to choose between Sweet Tyranny and Walk of Shame, both seem to feature my beloved iris but I’ll go with the latter. Notes: morning-after musk (I know that note!).
    Hope you are fine!

  11. Gavin Smith says:

    I loooove Jasmin Tobacco, but the notes are a tad too obvious to fairly qualify here, so I give you the marvelous patchouli note in Hippie Holidaze as my exhibit A. I love Smell Bent and their left of centre approach!
    Good luck to all the contestants for this giveaway and thanks to Portia for being so generous!

  12. Patty Pong says:

    Wow, great draw, Portia! Thanks a lot for the chance! No Smell Bent around, and I don’t know any!
    My pick – Disco Nap with vanilla!

    hey, I follow by email,
    and I’ll go with Horny Little Devil, cause it is a good name, and cause it contains filthy musk!

  16. Carolyn says:

    I follow by email/wordpress. Hard to pick just one but I’d say Hungry Hungry Hippies. Fun to revisit my younger years legally…LOL

  17. Helena says:

  18. Scar says:

    Great giveaway!
    I choose Werewolf Lumberjack – how can you get past the note of “oversexed wolf musk”?!
    I follow by email.

  19. Lean S says:

    Oh my gosh! I’ve heard of these, but now I’m fascinated to try them. Thank you for this opportunity! I found Sweet Tyranny interesting, with notes of orris root with fresh orange and bourbon vanilla… creamsiclee! I follow via email (LeanS12(at)gmail(dot)com)

  20. Nemo says:

    It is really hard to pick one perfume, because they all look and sound so fun! I will go with Never Never Land with the note of “arid outback.” It sounds appropriate for APJ 🙂 I follow by email.
