    Same here.

    Unrelated but I love your avatar, that was a ridiculous but hilarious movie.

    cmax: Not very late, maybe two or three days into the promotion?

    I think it was posted early Saturday morning, and the first 200 entries get samples.

    Who knows? Enter anyway; you've got nothing to lose.

    I put in for it.

    Normally these things get shut down when they fill up, so we should know soon.

    I have my eyes on another cutie-pie these days but haven't yet gotten around to changing my avatar (I'll probably do so when BMM09 ends next week). That would be Elisha Cuthbert who's best known for playing Kim Bauer, Jack Bauer's daughter in the TV series 24.

    I entered on Saturday morning. Maybe the sample will arrive before my actual osmanthus bushes start to bloom. They should be filling the garden with intoxicating fragrance by now. Everything's off schedule.

    I did as well. I was confused that the article said it was launched in 2003 but the Basenotes directory and Fragrantica list it as 2006. I hedged my bets and listed both.

    Good luck to everyone!

    I entered! Only a couple hours after it was posted, too, so hopefully I'll get something.

    This gave me a start. I'd said 2003, based on the article. Now Smell This has a review from April 2005, and the Basenotes directory now states 2003. That Fragrantica used the same erroneous date as BN previously had ... hmm, we know they were posting fragrance reviews copied from BN. I feel my blood starting to boil. I'm gonna go outside and pull more weeds.

    Mine arrived today and I absolutely hate it. It smells nothing of osmanthus and reminds me of cheap fruit-salad fragrance that you'd expect in a Glade Plug-in air freshener.

    I got my sample this morning - it smells like something I've smelled before, but I can't my finger on it. I like it, but.... Not ready to post an opinion on it just yet.

    Btw I also put 2003 as the answer to the question, whether that's right or wrong!

    Mine arrived on Tuesday, haven't tried it yet, but I suspect it is going to be too feminine for me. I also don't think Osmanthus is really my thing - I certainly didn't like SL Datura Noir. but one never knows....

    I got my original 2003 or 2004 sample vial out and will be doing a side-by-side test with the new sample tomorrow. It's probably just the same but I'd like to know for sure. I know that I didn't like it the first time as it was in the back of my sample box.

    Mine came in a few days ago. Testing next week. I thought I might be too late, and then again I thought why would Ormonde Jayne not send out samples beyond the 200 to a very potential buying group (Basenoters) even if the requests/entries were a bit late?

    I always feel bad when a company is nice and sends away free samples and my reaction is negative. This is one of those cases, and it's not a provocative, interesting negative, either. I smells like a hundred fruity shampoos I have known.

    Maybe me and osmanthus just don't get along.

    Ditto. Received mine a few days ago. I've always loved the smell of osmanthus fragrans and was expecting to find it distilled into this bottle. Yes, there's a hint of the smell of the flower there, typically reminiscent of ripe apricots, but it's veiled in a cheap, generic floral mess. Certainly a man couldn't pull it off. And a woman shouldn't try.
