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!

Thank you, @tsavorite!! Yes, it definitely got me in the holiday mood!! Such an lovely gift!! 🎁 

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

Oh, lovely pics! Congratulations and enjoy! @haleyvvvv 

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

Thank you, thank you, @sister13!! 

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

Congratulations @haleyvvvv 🍾🎉🎊🌹 can’t wait to hear what you think of all these goodies. I wear YSL yesterday. It’s a classic hit 🥰

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

Thank you, @blackkitty2014!!

 

I'm slowly getting to try them out, but I can't wear perfume to work, so it's been a little slow going. I just wore the YSL for a full day and really like how spicy and warm but sweet it is. 

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

I have had a crazy and hectic week, so I have been enjoying this incredible and generous box of joy from @TeamBIC ! This year has been rough between some work and life events and this truly lifted my spirits and set the holidays and end of year in a positive light! Thank you, thank you, thank you to @TeamBIC and the brands for this package, which was stunningly designed and put together for us. 

 

The Kilian was truly the first to get my eye, as I’d been considering purchasing either this one or Angels Share and really couldn’t decide so I was holding out. Also, I had gone to Nordstrom to try these out and get samples and the lady was so stingy and wouldn’t give me any! Which was so stupid because I am a huge Kilian fan and would have probably bought one of them. Anyway, this just sealed Sephora in my heart of hearts, as if they weren’t already! 💕💗💕

 

I first tried Kilian in France a million years ago, and then I have been a sucker for all the sampler sets, then finally purchased the Love Don't Be Shy, which is one of my all time Holy Grail scents. I have blind bought a few scents, including Voulez Vous Couchez Avec Moi (not my favorite - it’s too powdery, but it is signed by Kilian) and the Love Don’t Be Shy Eau Fraiche (I LOVE it). And then, Intoxicated may one day be a full size purchase, except my husband has a super sensitive nose and can’t take that one. 

 

Anyway, I’m in love with Apple Brandy. And no worries about @heartsmyface taking her fragrance out of cart, because now I’ve already ordered Angel’s Share, haha. I wanted both but didn’t want to buy both, so I bought none. As much as I’m a fragrance junkie, I am not the greatest at descriptions, but I do get a boozy, fruity, pineapple-y, sweet-but-not-too-sweetness from Apple Brandy. I think Angels Share was slightly less sweet and boozy, but I can’t remember until it arrives. 

I was super surprised by the Chloé Chloé Naturelle Eau de Parfum 1 oz/ 30 mL Eau de Parfum Spray because I have always wanted to love regular Chloe (the description sounds so lovely, and I love florals) but it has a super sharp and awful note to my nose. This one still doesn’t sound like the description by any means, but smells like clean laundry, except I don’t love clean laundry perfumes. 

The Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia Eau de Parfum is such a beautiful bottle. I actually wish it had more gardenia to it. It’s a bit more generic floral to me, but I still really like it. It has a super fine mister. 

Anyway, here’s some pictures of these lovelies, even paired the KILIAN Paris Apple Brandy Eau de Parfum 1.7 oz/ 50 mL Eau de Parfum Spray with a Brandy Old Fashioned.

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

@sister13 You have such a beautifully curated fragrance collection and I've enjoyed being introduced to many luxury fragrances via your reviews over the last few years!

 

I bought Angel's Share a few months ago and I love it soooo much, probably more than Apple Brandy. I hope you love it, too!

 

And that cocktail looks absolutely delicious! Cheers!❤️❤️❤️

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

Congrats, @sister13! Love your cocktail pairing!

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

@sister13, it made my heart smiled to hear how much joy this scentillating box of beauties brought you! Congratulations! 💝 Of the Killian liquors collection, my favorite is Angel's Share (I also picked up a full size - we'll be haul twinsies!) and then the Apple Brandy. Loooooove the photo with the Old Fashioned - it was at one time my most loved spirited refreshment. 😉 

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

Wow! Congratulations 🎊🎉🍾🎈!!!! @sister13  And cheers 🍻 or as we say in Spanish Salud! 

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

Congratulations on getting this gratis @sister13 ! I was hoping you would, your fragrance collection is truly unforgettable lol. I remember you'd showed me a glimpse of it before - divine!

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

Compliments on the Fab photos. So nice to have both a display-shelf plus a cute tray for parfum. Enjoy!

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

I cannot get over this photo of the Old Fashioned + Apple Brandy @sister13!! 🥃 So happy this gratis made its way to you. Enjoy these fragrances, and hope you have a wonderful holiday season~ 

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

These are the most stunning photos EVER. That Killian fragrance looks like a dream on the vanity, bathroom or even bar table 🤤

 

Lucky you!

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

Oh, wow. Beautiful pics, @sister13 ! Wish I could reach through the screen and steal that drink! 😋

 

Thanks for the reviews! And congrats!

 

P.S. I am loving the mister on the Gucci, too! So, so fine and nice!

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

Thank you! I am a fan of fragrance and of craft cocktails!  @RavenR 

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

@sister13How cute that you have your fragrances divided by season!  Congratulations and I hope next year is easier for you.

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

Yes! Some are eternal, but some suit better or I reach for them more frequently when it’s warmer vs when it’s cooler. I love so many different types of fragrances, so it’s one way to organize and enjoy them year round. @Ispend2much6 

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

Congratulations, @sister13 !  I love your photos and comments.  I'm glad to hear how much this gift has lifted your spirits!  Your Fragrance Collection is incredible!

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

Thanks @tsavorite! It really has! I ave been more discerning about which fragrances to purchase in the last couple years, but fragrances are a deep love of mine in the beauty world.

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

Congratulations, @sister13!! 🥳 

 

Also that Brandy Old Fashioned looks so good!! (And that pineapple garnish stick is too cute!!)
