Lutens, Mugler, Penhaligon’s




Hey Crew,

I’m drowning in samples here. It’s getting out of hand so I’ve decided this week to put a few samples in the giveaway. They’re all carded manufacturers samples. Good luck.

Lutens, Mugler, Penhaligon’s

Serge Lutens: Arabie and Cedre

These samples were given to me on my 2013 first visit to the Serge Lutens Palais Royale store in Paris. I was so overwhelmed at even being there I didn’t notice that the SA was giving me samples for bottles already in my collection. They have sat forlorn and untouched since. It’s time to move them on.

Thierry Mugler: Alien and Angel

While buying Mon Guerlain, A*Men Kryptomint and something for Jin in Luxembourg earlier this year, as we were leaving to catch the train, I was given a bag of samples by the SA which was full of wonderful stuff. I have bottles of both of these though and they really need a new home. Bugler has done some really excellent scents, these two are just the beginning.

Penhaligon’s: Clandestine Clara and Roaring Radcliff

I love the stories that came with this set of fragrances, go look them up. Hilarious and naughty. The quirky (and extremely heavy) brass heads are fun too. I had longevity issues with these but hopefully they will hold to your skin better than mine because the scents are very nice.

    I don’t want to be entered in the giveaway because I have all of these. I LOVE the Penhaligon’s Portraits series and have a full bottle of Tragedy. They last for shit.

  2. Loren says:

    Hi, I follow APJ via the email newsletter. I’d love to try Lutens, as I’ve tried Mugler and Penhaligon. Thanks 😊

  3. Patty Pong says:

    Oh I’d like to try the Roaring Radcliff. Not something I have heard of. I follow by e-mail. 🙂

  4. Jaybee says:

    What a generous giveaway! I have a thing for Lutens, but the Penhaligons are intriguing too. Follow by email. 😊

  5. Kandice says:

    Such a generous draw, and I have to say I sadly haven’t tried any of these despite many being a classic. My choices to try would be the Arabie and the Clandestine Clara. Thanks for the chance 🙂 I follow via email.

  6. Anthea says:

    I follow APJ via email. I’d most like to try Clandestine Clara, mainly because I’m a sucker for pretty/quirky packaging and bottles! The design with the peacock is right up my alley! 😛

  7. David Hallinan says:

    I follow via email and see posts via the AFN group on Facebook, the ones I’d be most interested in trying are any besides Alien Woman/Man, because I own one and have smelled both.

  8. Tena says:

    Hello Portia,

    I would love to try Arabie – I am a great Lutens fan, and have somehow missed this one.

    I enjoy following through email and FB

    Kiss the hounds for me please


  9. Shannon Whelan says:

    I follow by email and by facebook, I’m interested in any of them really as I’m stilll very new to perfume! However I’ve a soft spot for both Lutens and Penhaligons! I did have a chance to try the Roaring Radcliff a month back and couldn’t make up my mind on how it compares to Lutens 5 O Clock Au Gingembre? For some reason I expected them to be similar in ideas but they were quite enjoyably different?

  10. Annet Z says:

    I would like to try the Arabie and Clandestine Clara.

  19. Hage Kay says:

    Hi, definitely the Penhaligons pair, the name Clandestine Clara and Roaring Radcliffe is temptation enough. I follow via WP and email.

  20. HanneA says:

    Ooh, goodies. 🙂 I’ve never tried anything Serge Lutens and would like to try Arabie and Cedre. But I’ve not tried anything Mugler either lol. I’m open to both but leaning to SL. Thanks for the chance. I follow by email.

  21. I follow APJ via email. I’ve never tried anything Serge Lutens and would like to try Arabie and Cedre. But, I Love Penhaligon´s!!!!!!!!

  22. Ingeborg says:

    Please enter me in the draw. I follow by email. I am not a big fan of Mugler, but the other samples are all tempting and should I happen to win the Mugler samples there’s plenty of people here who would love them.

    Thanks for your generosity Portia. A fragrance with a name like Roaring Radcliff is a must-try for me. I follow via FB.

  26. Jc Loh says:

    Anything that’s naughty has my attention so would love
    to have Penhaligon’s please.

    Email subscriber, thank you.

  27. Saffyishere says:

    Simply by name I’d love to try the Clandestine Clara or Roaring Radcliff. Also a lady at work loves Alien but can no longer afford to buy a bottle, so I’d be excited to give her the sample. I follow you via Facebook.
    Thanks for the drawer.

  28. Lisilou says:

    I’ve never tried any Penhaligon scents. These look intriguing! And I’ve a soft spot for SL and have never sniffed Cedre or Arabie. I follow by email newsletter.

  29. Katherine M says:

    I would say Serge Lutens – I have yet to purchase my first bottle and have had gris clair on my wishlist for ages. I recently retried it on my skin ( as opposed to a carded spray) and hated it.. I was so dissapointed , but am determined to keep trying to find my Serge Lutens scent.

    I follow by facebook and newsletter

  30. Neva says:

    Most of all I’d like to try the Penhaligon’s because of the interesting names, of course. Thanks for the new giveaway.
    I follow APJ via email.

    Lutens’ Cedre and Alien by Mugler would be my picks. Thanks for the draw, Portia 🙂
