Ho Ho Holidays, The Festive Fragrance Gratis Thread!

A little birdie told me that Santa's sleigh is touching down early this year and some of our active community members have a holiday gratis parcel en route.

 

Please feel free to use this thread to share your holiday gratis unboxings and let us all know what you think of this sweet surprise gift 🙂

 

Thank you, as always to @TeamBIC for putting together these wonderful opportunities that celebrate our members of the BIC community.

 

Can't wait to see what everyone got!

Re: Ho Ho Holidays, The Festive Fragrance Gratis Thread!

I love your pictures and your descriptions, @Guessgal

Re: Ho Ho Holidays, The Festive Fragrance Gratis Thread!

@Guessgal   That's exciting!  Congratulations!

Re: Ho Ho Holidays, The Festive Fragrance Gratis Thread!

Thank you and congrats to you as well @Ispend2much6 I loved reading about the gardenia bushes near your house. I haven't seen these white flowers where I live so I'm not sure I would identify them if I stumbled upon them.

Re: Ho Ho Holidays, The Festive Fragrance Gratis Thread!

@Guessgal   Thank you!  Oh, you would know if you ran across a gardenia; the scent is soo prolific when they're actually on the bush.

Re: Ho Ho Holidays, The Festive Fragrance Gratis Thread!

Yes, they are SO INCREDIBLE in real life - so gorgeous and so heady! Which, though, is why I was so surprised upon smelling this fragrance the first time, because I don't really pick up ANY real gardenia in this one. But I do love it, and bought it, prior to getting this gratis box. I guess they are pretty finicky and hard to grow unless the climate is just right. One day, maybe I will live somewhere tropical and have some of these, along with jasmine! @Ispend2much6 @Guessgal 

Re: Ho Ho Holidays, The Festive Fragrance Gratis Thread!

@sister13   We have Carolina jasmine also; it smells so pretty in the summer. But, to keep things balanced, we also have a terrible mosquito problem... and plenty of other various insects.  🙂

 

I agree; I can't smell gardenia either.  I sprayed the box just to see what it would smell like, and it's a sweet, light, fresh scent.  I can't pick out any particular scent, but I'm not good at deciphering fragrances.

Re: Ho Ho Holidays, The Festive Fragrance Gratis Thread!

Congratulations @Guessgal.

Re: Ho Ho Holidays, The Festive Fragrance Gratis Thread!

@Guessgal Congrats on this gratis 

Re: Ho Ho Holidays, The Festive Fragrance Gratis Thread!

Congratulations, @Guessgal !  I appreciate your first impressions about the fragrances! ( I don't have descriptive skills when it comes to fragrances, but I love them.)  💕

Re: Ho Ho Holidays, The Festive Fragrance Gratis Thread!

Congratulations @Guessgal!

Re: Ho Ho Holidays, The Festive Fragrance Gratis Thread!

Congratulations, @Guessgal! Thank you for your descriptions and thoughts so far. I am trying out the Gucci today so I gave extra attention to those notes. I was expecting more gardenia and am grateful it is subtle. Enjoy, your photos are beautiful, too!

Re: Ho Ho Holidays, The Festive Fragrance Gratis Thread!

@eshoe I’m glad it was helpful! I wore Gucci again yesterday for dinner unmasked and I noticed it a bit more on myself, but yes I’d still categorize it as subtle. Excited to hear what you think! 🙂

Re: Ho Ho Holidays, The Festive Fragrance Gratis Thread!

@Guessgal I find it subtle also, which is unusual for a gardenia/jasmine based perfume. It surprised me, but in a good way.

Re: Ho Ho Holidays, The Festive Fragrance Gratis Thread!

Congratulations @Guessgal ❤️

Re: Ho Ho Holidays, The Festive Fragrance Gratis Thread!

Big congrats @Guessgal and really love your descriptions of them too! 💞

Re: Ho Ho Holidays, The Festive Fragrance Gratis Thread!

@Guessgal @Congratulations!! Based on your description of the YSL Black Opium Extreme, I have to buy it! You know how I feel about Bourbon. ❤️

Re: Ho Ho Holidays, The Festive Fragrance Gratis Thread!

@bem564 Yessss I think you would enjoy it! Funny enough, I placed a YSL order last month and it came with a cute miniature Black Opium dabber and body lotion GWP so I got the whole package with this scent 😅

Re: Ho Ho Holidays, The Festive Fragrance Gratis Thread!

Ahh congratulations @Guessgal !! Totally fangirling with you on the Kilian response, love when the brands are responsive on social - makes it so much for fun!
