Also, the nice people at Micallef request that as part of your entry you go to Facebook and "Like" their page. Since we know not all of you are Facebook users and none of us in interested in policing this giveaway more than is required by law, this part is optional/honor system, but I do recommend doing it simply for easy access to news, giveaway and such.


This is what Micallef minis look like

The even smaller print:◆No purchase necessary. Ever. Because I don't sell anything◆participants must be 18 or older◆void where prohibited by law◆regulated by the State of NJ◆Prizes will be sent by the Micallef company.

Again: leave a comment telling us what's your favorite summer perfume. And please (please!) include your name in the comment if you're not signed in-- we kind of need to be able to reach you in some way or another.

  2. My favorite perfume for summer is Monyette Paris. That creamy musky gardenia makes me feel like I'm on the beach like I should be, and not on the computer like I usually am, lol.

  3. Oh, I have been wanting to smell Pomelos for a long, long time! Hope I win!

    My current summer favorites are Kai and Child. But I also love Monyette Paris and Coquette Tropique. :-)

  10. My favorite summer scent is old, but maybe becoming classic: Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. I like the cedar vs citrusness of it.

    You are so cool to host this giveaway. I just found your blog.

    I 'liked' Micallef on facebook (where I am Margot Core and connected to an entirely different email: annazed10 [at] yahoo [dot] com); and I made a request to join your group too.

    I love pomelos, so this could be something special.

  23. Thank you for the give away! I love Goutal's Rose Splendide for summer. Just the right amount of green to counteract the heat.

    ReplyDelete
  24. This was, all right, the early 1990s, before I knew better. My summer fragrance was Eternity for Men, by C. Klein.


    My summer fragrance this year? Not sure yet. For my birthday in mid-July, I might buy myself a bottle of Mandy Aftel's Tres Vert. Or a C. B. I Hate Perfume, like In The Library or 1968.


    Tomorrow, however, is a family function, a memorial service with a reunion luncheon immediately after. I am going to wear Jicky or VentVert. I need the moral fiber they give me. I might change my mind, and wear Tom Ford's Violet Blonde.


    Happy Summer to all!


    Lawrence in Ohio.

    Thanks for the give away!

    ReplyDelete
  56. It hasn't been too hot here yet but I have been enjoying SMN Gaggia. I think, though, that lifetime fave is good old 4711.

  59. I just love kenzo flower in the summer. Been rocking it for years now.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Enjoying everyone's posts! I am impressed by the fortitude and convictions of all who have been able to respond with a single fragrance, as I am much too weak to declare fidelity to a lone favorite.

    One scent I always love for summer is Passage d'Enfer; spritzing it on is like stepping from a hot and crowded city street into the cool, silent darkness of an old cathedral. I also return to the elegance of Lys Mediterranee, the perfect scent for a wedding by the sea. I will relish the refreshing tea in Oolong Infini; the crisp clean serenity of Juliet Stewart; the gentle yet airy sweetness of Ylang in Gold; the sunny joy of Soivohle Honeysuckle Bird; the grassy figgy goodness of Ichnusa; the bewitching Seville a l'Aube; and the alluring peach nectar of Flower of Immortality.

    Thanks for the opportunity to enter the draw. I own and love several M Micallef fragrances, and I'm sure Pomelo will be another winner for this house!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I think my favorite summer fragrance is a toss-up between Frederic Malle Carnal Flower (it just blooms so wonderfully in the weather where I live) and Creed Millesime Imperial - sun-warmed skin, salty from a dip in the sea, with a hefty dose of citrus and watermelon! Love your blog, and thanks for the giveaway : )

    ReplyDelete
  65. I've seen the same response from several (another? reader) -- Diorella, the original version. Roudnistka at his best, imo.
    New summer loves are Hermes Osmanthe, and CKbe. Thanks for the draw ....

  67. I have heard such great things about Micallef Pomelos!Goodness, my favorite summer fragrance changes by the day. I tend to reach for rose fragrances and citrus fragrances when the weather is warm. SOTD is Rose Poive from The Different Company... but last week I couldn't stop with the Bois Farine... it just felt perfect--neither a rose nor a citrus... I just went to look at my FBs... I buy so few, and mostly live with decants... but I noticed my Zen limited edition (purple bottle), which is a terrific summer fragrance...citrus and rose and lily-of-the-valley, and maybe jasmine... note to self to wear it tomorrow...

    ReplyDelete
  68. I think Eau de Sud has got to be my all-time summer favorite. It's so cooling and stands up to the heat.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Thanks so much for your geneous offer! I love Daim Blond and completely understand the "peach fuzz" note you describe, so I'd love to try Pomelos! My favorite summer scents are a far cry from the spicy, amber-y niche fragrances I favor during the cooler weather. For summer, I make no apolgies for loving the original 4711 and Thymes Ginger Milk, but other favorites include Parfums del Rae's Eau Illuminee and Parfums de Rosine's Rosa Flamenca. Joyous fragrances in warm weather all!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Thanks for the giveaway--those little minis are sweet! Right now I am wearing lots of Ineke's Poet's Jasmine, but I have a feeling that when it really warms up I will be heading for the citrus--bring on the Pomelos!

    ReplyDelete
  71. My faves for summer include Eau pour le Jeune Homme and Baime by MPG and Balle de Match by Nicolai. Would love to try Micallef Pomelos!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Who knows for this year, but last year I enjoyed Chanel Sycomore and Frapin L'Humaniste the most during the summer. Thanks for the giveaway!

    My scent this season is chlorine. I'm hunting for cleansers that can completely remove the eau de pool. Or perhaps a scent that would layer well with my aqua antiseptica?

    I do love Guerlain AA Pamplelune on a blotter but when it's on my skin I smell like a cocktail. I keep looking for the bar.

    I'd so much rather go looking for that lemon grove you mentioned! Thank you for the lovely draw. You can reach me at alederberg at hotmail dot com.

  80. Hey Gaia! Thank you so much for hosting this giveaway! I know you'll scoff, but I think my favorite summer scent is Ommia Profumo - Madera. At least for now. I am using a sampler and it makes me think of pecans, caramel, and rum drinks. Why on earth I love it for summer is not something I can explain, but I like it a great deal. I can be reached at SophiePinkCheeks@gmail.com if I'm a lucky winner.

  90. It has been Herba Fresca or Mandragore the past couple of years but this spring I'm crushing hard on Elie Saab EDT and I think this fling will continue through the summer.

  102. L'Artisan Timbuktu. Reminds me of childhood summers at my grandmother's in Mississippi - her linen closets were scented with beribboned bundles of vetiver roots bought in New Orleans. I think they were meant to scare away bugs. Timbuktu is my grandmother's linen closet meets camping out in Joshua Tree. Awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I love Osmanthe Yunnan, but it's so $$$ I can't spray with as much abandon as I'd like :) Mandragore is another summer go-to.

    ReplyDelete
