New Year Is Upon Us with Perfume Giveaway


The old year isn't quite over, its many gifts settling in and the new one tentatively stealing a glimpse, and I'm celebrating by offering my readers a special treat on this special day: A brand new bottle of Amouage Dia perfume 30ml in a velvety pouch which will be given to one lucky reader who will comment on this post and suggest their favorite charity. The draw is open internationally until Friday 3rd 2014 midnight and winner will be announced in the weekend.


Below Pantelis Thalassinos sings the (fragrant!) folk version of the New Year's Carols from Chios island in Greece. I wish you all the many blessings of the lyrics.

"Good evening I say, ushering fragrant air,
from the frothing waves, sung a thousand times over.

No stone should crack in the house we came to
and may the landlord live for many years.

Saint Basil dear and my dear Saint Nicholas,
protect the sailors in the hour of the storm.

May you live many years and be merry, you and yours,
and may your immigrant beloveds and all your sailors come back.

We wish you all to get love, peace and good health,
a jolly heart, a smile and blessings too.

First day of the month and first of the year, my tall rosemary tree,
and first of January, the day of Saint Basil.

(St.) Basil, my dear, wherever you're coming from and wherever you're descending,
holding roses and anointing,
sit down and feast, sit down and drink, sit down and tell us your troubles,
sit down and sing, and welcome us and come out and treat us,
may you live, may you live and get to an old age. "

    My favorite charity is my local Meals on Wheels program - it provides food and company to housebound members of the community.

    Happy New Year! I'm excited to be entered into a draw for something I've never smelled, but have an enthusiasm based to the comments over the years of others on how beautifully made Amouage perfumes are.

    My favorite charity is the ASPCA, like the commenter above. Thank you!

    My vote goes to a Salvation Army-like Quebec City local institution that is called L'Auberivière. It started as a shelter for both men and women,but they grew into support and reinsertion programs that really work. They even have an organic garden on the top of their building!

    WOW!!! What a wonderful draw and how great it is to see how many animal lovers are here. I have so many favorite charities but my newest one is barcs.org It started in Baltimore,Md. but now has different locations across throughout the U.S. It is a program that spays/neuters animals of low income or seniors for $10.00, how GREAT is that. I'd also like to mention Hector's House (in Greece) that also helps with animal rescue. I do love charities for animals as they don not have a voice in what happens to them. Happy New Year Elena.

  15. What a nice way to end 2013 and begin 2014!! There are tons of amazing charities both big and small. My favorite is one called Hank's Hope in Wilmington, DE that was started by my dear friend Anne. It is named after her son who she lost when she was 8 months pregnant. Despite her loss and grief, Anne bravely began a charity called Hank's Hope that raises money to purchase teddy bears for mothers and fathers who lose a child in childbirth, miscarriage, etc. Included with the teddy bears it is Anne's desire that Hank's Hope can also raise money to provide therapeutic services for these parents. It's a wonderful charity and I have had the pleasure of seeing it from the beginning. It is amazing what a small gesture of kindness can do for someone who is grieving.

  16. Thanks for the lovely New Year's Carol.
    In Australia we have a charity called Fitted for Work - they assist disadvantaged women in getting back into the workplace. These women have often had great tragedy, illness and bad circumstance happen in their lives. Fitted for Work gives them outfits to wear to interviews, coaching, training and most importantly confidence. A remarkable organisation who I support and admire and hope I shall never have need to be a client.
    Happy New Year and thank you for bringing so much olifactory joy to my life! Melanie

  29. Thank you for another year of wonderful blog entries!

    It's hard to choose my favourite charity, so I'll pick the most obscure one: the Marmot Recovery Foundation. It works to protect the highly endangered (and adorable!) Vancouver Island marmot - probably the rarest animal in North America, if not the entire New World - by saving its habitat in the wild and carrying out captive breeding to boost its numbers.

    In my opinion, the biggest charity in my city is pets.ee - the biggest estonian animal shelter, made by strong and gorgeous woman Larissa for thowe, who were thrown away and has no home now. Everyone has a permission to be loved and live with those who loves and cares about you!
    I wish all of the creatures in our small planet to have their own home - a place, where you can rest and find your oun piece of heaven!

  44. I don't have a single favourite charity: while there are some that I give to every year (usually at or near year's end), I will often spontaneously give to whatever charity seems to need my support at the time. But if I had to choose one, it would probably be Planned Parenthood. They do good work.

  77. There are a lot of great, legitimate charities out there. One that I have been donating to for a while is Heifer International. Thirty dollars can purchase the gift of honeybees for a family in need. And that family will have vitamin- and mineral-rich honey to eat and sell, wax for making candles and up to three times the crop yields. I like this gift because I love bees, and the family has so many different outlets for income in raising them including improving their harvest.

    Imagine what your lives would be like not only without perfume, but without the ability to smell or taste anything at all. I encourage you all to consider Fifth Sense (www.fifthsense.org.uk), the UK's first charity devoted to anosmia - smell and taste disorders. It is being launched by Duncan Boak, a remarkable guy I met on a perfumery course I took last summer (which I found out about
    here) - he is doing everything from scratch himself, from bringing together top science and medical experts; relevant industry participants (food, fragrance, other); to reaching out to potential members around the world, in order to establish a resource for all things anosmia.
    Please be generous with your support - either financial, professional or moral.

  117. My favorite charity is the Belfast Soup Kitchen and Good Shepard Food Pantry in the town where I live. Officially, 17% of the town lives below the poverty line; I know the number is much higher. Small charities do much good and their resources are limited, to say the least. In this case, as with most (if not all) local charities, it's neighbor helping neighbor. Thanks for the draw and Happy New Year!
