    Default Is the winner among us?!

    "THE PRIZE - MAAI n.1000 is out there, somewhere. If you find it you will win this. A crystal bottle with a sterling silver cap, manufactured in England in the year 1886. I asked to Italian jeweler to add a silver chain with a small bogue medal, a white pearl, a skull and a starfish. An 100% one-off bottle to celebrate MAAAI. The lucky winner will receive a lab amber bottle with 200 ml of MAAI as well to refill the bottle. The real luxury is to give presents. Good luck!"

    It is, indeed! And I wish that I had won it, but am at the very least, hoping that some other BNer did.

    Doesn't mention how to identify Bottle #1000. Is it a puzzle? Or are all Bogue bottles numbered?

    Hmmm.. I went to the Bogue website and didn't find a word about the 'Prize'. Did Bogue sponsor it?
    Only the fool would take trouble to verify that his sentence was composed of ten as, three bs, four cs, four ds, forty-six es, sixteen fs, four gs, thirteen hs, fifteen is, two ks, nine ls, four ms, twenty-five ns, twenty-four os, five ps, sixteen rs, forty-one ss, thirty-seven ts, ten us, eight vs, eight ws, four xs, eleven ys, twenty-seven commas, twenty-three apostrophes, seven hyphens and, last but not least, a single!

    Go ahead. Test the veracity of this (1960s I think) pre-computer generated masterpiece of self-referential sentences.

    And has the contest closed? Sure hope it doesn't show up on eBay any time soon.

    This quote was from Bogue's FB page, so I'm assuming they ponied up for this.

    This is all from their current Facebook page, and it says nothing about dates. Sorry!

    Maybe someone else knows more about this? Their FB post seems rather mysterious and some of the vital details are missing (like when the winner is notified/announced, etc.).

    Love the bottle design.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    My bottle of MEM has a card with the bottle number handwritten on it (#92.) My understanding of this contest is that if you buy a bottle of Maai and your card says 1000 then you contact Bogue to claim your prize. Seems it could take months or longer for someone to get it. I plan on buying a bottle in the next few months, but I couldn't imagine what I'd do with over 200ml of it!

    Good point--I'd probably end up selling it on Ebay for a trillion-gazillion bucks. :-)

    The real winner here is Bogue. That 1000 bottles of MAAI actually got made /sold(?) is news to me.

    Whoever won or wins it I hope it is someone who is a true Fraghead and also from Basenotes.

    Did not even participate in the competition, finding out about it only now, but would be glad if a fellow Basenoter really is the winner

    Did MAAI not sell well? I had no idea.

    Yes, I was really thinking/wishing it were some genuine fume head who was in love with MAAI.

    My feelings exactly! Truth is however, that this bottle of Maai will last me forever. One to two sprays takes me through an entire day with ease.
