    Default Maria Candida Gentile Sample Draw: Winners

    After singing the praises of some of Maria Candida Gentile’s creations, over the last few weeks, I thought it would be a good idea if some Basenoters had the opportunity to try at least a couple of her creations. So, after a few correspondences back and forth with Maria, I am pleased to announce that she has kindly agreed to donate a few samples of two of her creations, Gershwin and Exultat, towards a Basenotes Christmas draw.

    There are six pairs of these 2ml samples up for grabs – three for male Basenoters and another three for female Basenoters. If you would like to enter the draw, all you have to do is leave a reply in this thread before the 24th December, 21:00 GMT.

    The entries from each forum will then be divided into two groups – the veteran/experienced Basenoters and the relative newbies. One draw will be conducted for each of these four groups (i.e. 2x male and 2x female). After the first four winners have been randomly chosen, the remaining entries will be once again entered into two final draws (one exclusively for female Basenoters and the other exclusively for male Basenoters).

    The winners will be announced on the 29th December.

    If you happen to be one of the lucky winners listed, please PM your address details to me ASAP and I will pass them onto Maria, who will then post the samples out to you.


    Now, before you hit the reply button, there are a few rules:

    1) Only one reply per Basenoter is allowed – multiple replies will be disregarded.

    2) This thread has been posted in both the men’s and women’s forum, so please post your reply in the forum relevant to your gender (in other words, male replies only in the male forum and vice versa) or your reply will be deemed as void.

    3) Any replies after the closing date will be disregarded.

    4) The draw is open to all Basenoters except for members who registered this month and guests.

    Good luck!

    Please count me in, too. I should be delighted.

    I do not seem to find very much about these fragrances anywhere on basenotes. Any hint of what they are like?

    Edit: Apologies, I did not notice your blog. And what a blog it is! My compliments. (I like the sound of Barry Lyndon, one of my favourite films.)

    From their website:

    Gershwin is an ode to the forests, flowers and sounds, musics of different continents which one can grab only by exploring, an ode to our spirit of freedom and belonging to the same planet, the earth, our home.

    Gershwin is made of citruses and rare incenses. It contains at the same time the vibrations of the the Sicilian sun and the Memphis blues, the Sycomore fragrance vibrating together with the peated scents of the night.
    A visit to the Church of Saint Lorence in Lucina during the hour of Vespers "provoked" the fantasy of Maria Candida, for the creation of Exultat.

    An evocative and spiritual perfume, which blends trascendence and matter, holy and lay. Into Exultat, Violet and Vetiver overlap and merge with Incens of Somalia, but the absolute of Violet leaves gives a touch of depth and spirituality to this creation.
    Also, enter me please =)
