  8. Radmila says:

    My favorite summer indulgence is to have a full day only for myself – with children away with their grandmother, and me with a book and a plate of peaches. Love Potion No.9 for me please

  9. Ed says:

    My favorite summer indulgence, at least with fragrance, is Comptoir Sud Pacifique’s Vanille Banane. It smells like banana cream pie, and I think it’s wildly fun for a scorching summer day, especially if there’s a party involved. ….am I the only one who wants Kokorico, for the funny bottle??? :-/

  10. poodle says:

    My favorite summer indulgence is sitting on the deck with a cup of tea or a cocktail and watching the hummingbirds. I would be happy with either fragrance.

  11. Darilyn says:

    Even though I live in Florida, my indulgence in summer is a day at the beach! At this time of year the water is so warm! I can spend hours in and out of the water, then stop for an ice cream cone on the way home! I would choose Love Potion No. 9…thanks!

  12. dremybluz says:

    A summer day at the beach is always fun. Love Potion #9 would be my choice, Thanks for the generous giveaway

  13. Jackie b says:

    Summer indulgence is the lazy afternoon nap. In a hammock.
    Cannot deal with those black bottles, so Potion #9 is my choice!
    Thanks for the draw

  14. Ellia says:

    My summer indulgence is to spend a day at the seaside – just me, the beach and the sound of waves 🙂 I would be happy with either fragrance.. Shared this on Facebook!

  15. Thank you and Georgy for this giveaway, Birgit! My favourite Summer indulgence is being able to spend more time reading than during the school year. I shared this giveaway on twitter. And I would love to win Love Potion no. 9 🙂

  16. My favorite summer indulgence is air conditioning and a good book. Thanks for the giveaway! I’ve got Love Potion #9 on my test list, so I’ll opt for that please.

  17. Annina says:

    Thank you for the giveaway! My favorite summer indulgence is a gin and tonic and good book on a child-free deck!

  18. lucasai says:

    My summer indulgence is a homemade summer mint ice tea.
    I devote my pasrticipation to Penhaligon’s one.

  19. Summer indulgence? Swimming laps in the pool and drying in the blazing sun, that salty zing when you lick your lips and the heat coming through the towel from the pool pavers. HEAVEN!
    Were I lucky enough to win then Gaultier please
    Portia xx

  20. Sarah Lachance says:

    Favorite summer treat? An icy lemon gelato.

    Love Potion #9, please. Retweeted you

  21. karins28 says:

    s Love Portion N°9
    and my favorite summer treat is Ben and Jerry’s ice cream!

  22. ringthing says:

    Oh, how nice, what a great draw! My summer indulgence is fruit, tons of it, especially sweet cherries. There are others, but cherries….have my heart. I’d want Penhaligon’s Love Portion N°9 For Men, please! I shared this on FB; my account is under my real name. Thanks for the chance.

  23. Kafkaesque says:

    My summer indulgence is actually more like an obsession. I discovered that BBC America has the UK Masterchef Professional series on, and I am utterly addicted. I love gastronomy far, far, far, FAR more than I do perfume, and the series focuses on professional chefs trying to cook Michelin-level food, often for 2 or 3 Michelin-starred restaurants in the later stages. The 2011 series featured the 2nd best restaurant in the world, in Spain, after Nobu, along with Joel Robuchon’s Atelier. The 2012 series has Hestor Blumenthal’s Fat Duck and others. All under the guidance of Judge Michel Roux, Jr. from the legendary Roux cooking dynasty. I tell you, I’m so obsessed that I’m upset when it’s the weekend and I know the episodes won’t be on. I’ve NEVER looked forward to Mondays more…..

    Er…. sorry, I think I got a bit carried away. As you can tell, gastronomy is my real passion in life. (A bit like your husband, non?) 🙂 I’d like to try the Love Potion No. 9. Thank you to the two of you for the giveaway.

  24. FeralJasmine says:

    I love a shower followed by a light spray of Penhaligon’s Amaranthine. Warm like summer, but not too warm. I would love to try another Penhaligon, so please enter me.

  25. Nancysg says:

    Summer indulgences….sitting on our front porch listening to the peeper frogs in the evening. I would love to try the Penhaligons.

  26. mridula says:

    ooh I would love a chance at the Love Potion No. 9. Thank you to Georgy and to you Birgit. My favourite summer indulgence has to be the more relaxed pace life takes wit the kids home from school.

  27. Must Have Boxes says:

    My favorite summer indulgence is going on fabulous vacations. I’d love to win Jean-Paul Gaultier Kokorico. Thanks!

    – KW

  28. chamekke says:

    Favourite summer indulgence? That’s almost too hard to answer! But if I have to choose, it’s probably taking a leisurely walk by the sea with my husband, enjoying the play of the clouds over the mountains (and keeping a keen lookout for otters, whom we’ve sometimes discovered playing about on the driftwood).

    By the way, when I saw your photo of Love Potion No. 9, I thought it was decorated with a moustache. Bottle as rorschach test, hmm…

    P.S. Either fragrance would be lovely but if I win (and am given the choice), I think I’ll go for the “moustache” 😉

  29. Bianca Rogoveanu says:

    Watermeloon lemonade on the terrace of my back yard….i would choose Gaultier.

  30. Hello, have been very happily getting reacquainted with your blog, thank you 🙂

    My favourite summer indulgence up here in Glasgow is the LIGHT: sitting on my front step drinking a cup of tea at 22:00 is pure heaven. I am drunk on light all summer long. It’s worth the dark winters for the long summer days!

    Kokorico would be my choice please, if I’m lucky enough 🙂

  31. dgambas says:

    My summer indulgence is always the same. As Adriatic coast has a special place in my heart, I like to spend three weeks on a small secluded beach, with my wife and son. It is important to be just “our” little beach where no one else is coming. Certainly a lot of swimming in clear water! Evenings are reserved for walks along the beautiful road above the coast. Sea and mountain air are slightly mixed there.
    I love to crumble dried immortelle we can find on the road. It is scent of my hands during vacation.
    Liked, tweeted, FB shared… LP would probably be more appropriate for me.
    This is truly original and generous giveaway. Thank you very much, Birgit and Georg.

  32. dkchocoman says:

    My summertime indulgence is eating Apple pie a la mode relaxing in a hammock between two shady trees swaying in the cool breeze. I liked and retweeted this post. LP No 9 would be my choice. Such a great giveaway! Thanks Birgit and Georgy.

  33. patricia says:

    My summertime indulgence-ice in all my drinks! and playing with my 2 cats-georgie and LULu. Thanks for the drawing Georgy and Brigit! Very nice you are thinking of us 🙂 BTW i just found out im going to be a first time grandma!

  34. Julz says:

    Wow B’, what a fab giveaway – thank u (& to generous G’ too !) … As for fave summer indulgence, it’s probably bucket-loads of strawberries & cream (our proper i.e. non-import Brit’ strawbs really are the best methinkz) 🙂 … & I’d chooz LP No.9 pleaz …
    (& I already ‘like’-d u, … but pressed it again for luck) 😉

  35. leathermountain says:

    sleeping late, and then napping when it gets hot
    just typing that makes me feel like dancing

  36. Scentedlife says:

    My only indulgence this summer was having some holidays, but unfortunately, I won’t have any 😦 but I can still treat myself with a new perfume, Kokorico would be a great start! I shared you on my fb page as well!

  37. nushechka says:

    Great giveaway!!!
    My favourite summer indulgence is to spend a day at the seaside.

  38. nushechka says:


  39. susan says:

    Favorite summer indulgence is swimming at the pool! I like on facebook and will share on Twitter as well. 🙂 I’d like to win Kokorico.

  40. Bren says:

    My favourite summer indulgence is napping during the hot afternoons after reading a good book.

    My choice would be Love Portion N°9 For Men.

  41. scentsentiments says:

    It’s already rainy season here in Manila, but my favorite summer indulgence was eating fresh, ripe, golden mangoes. That made me wish for Jo Loves A Shot of Oud Over Mango. Alas, they don’t ship to the Philippines. Anyhow, should I get lucky, I wish to get Penhaligons Love Potion No 9. Thanks for the draw. Sharing this to FB and Twitter.

  42. My summer indulgence? Lobster rolls with shoestring fries and a cold beer! The roll has to be a split-top hot dog bun, buttered and toasted. The lobster chunks have to be big, fat, and sweet, and all those yummy bits can only be tossed in Hellman’s mayonnaise and chopped chives. Maybe celery salt or Old Bay seasoning. Can you tell I’m picky? 🙂

    Thank you both for the giveaway!

  43. Oh! And Kokorico would be my choice 🙂

  44. Martin says:

    My favorite summer indulgence is taking the boat out on the lake and letting it drift as the wind blows. I would love to sample Penhaligon’s Love Potion.

  45. Jennifer Smith says:

    Thanks for the drawing !
    My favorite summer indulgence is a decadent cupcake(Gigi’s- frosting is about equal to -maybe greater than the actual cake) .Yum!
    I would be happy with either one as my taste in fragrance is quite eclectic. Although the rosewood in LP #9 for men does sound slightly more tempting…

  46. Steffi says:

    My favourite summer indulgence is being on a garden party for an auspicious occasion, meeting friends there and making new ones.
    My choice is LP°9!
    Thanks for this opportunity

  47. Yulina says:

    My indulgence would be a big cone of ice cream, preferably cookies and cream!
    My choice would be JPG’s Kokorico, thank you so much for the wonderful giveaway!

  48. Lyubov says:

    Thank you two for the generous givaway! I love to wiggle my fingers in the crystal clear water of one of our alpine dams.Along with close friends and family, of course. And a good book, as well. And a raspberry lemonade, too. And a Kokorico, please!

  50. Maureen says:

    I love the beach and will be going to AC, NJ next weekend with my daughter. I would love either of these fragrances, they both sound fun! Thanks for the draw.

  51. My favourite summer indulgence is, strangely, walking outdoors in the middle of a tropical thunderstorm! The reason for this is that I get to spend my summers in Southeast Asia, where heavy thunderstorms are common. I’d love to win the LP No.9. Thanks for the draw!

  52. oldfriends/bookends says:

    My favorite summer indulgence is luxuriating in my air conditioning after a bout of power yoga. Nothing poetic or fancy, but this is the first time I’ve had air conditioning in San Diego in the last 7 years. It makes me feel so luxurious!
    Kokorico, please! 🙂

  53. Veni from Prague says:

    My favourite summer indulgence? Probably picking ripen fruits in my garden, “talking” with my tomato plants, eating ice cream with walnut flavor…

  54. lotta says:

    Beach beach and beach! My favourite place in the world, just lying there like a seal 🙂
    I would love the Penhaglions ! Thanks for the draw!
