SmellyBlog Logo Poll Contest Winner Announcement

Draw Logo Contest, originally uploaded by Ayala Moriel.

It's time to announce the results of the last few contests I run here on SmellyBlog.

First of all, I'd like to thank all of you who participated in the poll for choosing SmellyBlog's new logo. As you can see, I have completely disregarded your advice, and went for my own favourite... I'm kidding, of course. You can probably imagine that there were other factors for my decision making besides your opinion (which matters to me a lot). I asked many people in person, besides on the blog, and consulted with friends and family. The logo with the little "cartoony" nose seems to be the best choice - my decision committee (lead by myself and my devoted graphic designer) felt that this was the most original, and we liked how it was humorous and a bit of a parody on my company's logo. Instead of the graceful and dreamy fairy, we now have a snotty nose with a similar line qualities (and the same font, by the way) and an amused expression of scent enjoyment smeared all over that minimalistic face.

After I have got my graphic designer, the talented Terry Sunderland, to perfect it and clean it up (the lines and the angles are a bit different - you'll need to have an eye for detail to really notice the difference between what I posted originally here as part of the poll, and what you can see above as the header for this humbly stinky blog). It's been up for a while, with no frilly introductions. Now is the time to announce its presence, as well as who won a full bottle of Opium Fleur Imperiale!

SAMANTHA, you are the winner - so please contact me with your mailing address (your bogger profile is secret, so I have no way of contacting you other than through this announcement). Once I hear from you, Fleur Imperiale will be shipped to you immediately!

Contests Winners and Announcements

First of all, I have to apologize for taking so long to announce the winners of SmellyBlog's recent contests. One of the contests is still open (more in a minute), and some already have winners!

Following up on the Annick Goutal trivia question, Theresa is the winner of a cute little purse spray of Annick Goutal's Songes EDT (I will perform the illegal act of decanting it myself). Congratulations, Theresa! Your prize will be on its way tomorrow.

Theresa is right: Elizabeth Taylor was sued by Annick Goutal for the use of the name Passion and now her perfume is called Elizabeth Taylor's Passion. As much as I love Songes and the brand of Annick Goutal, they seem to be into suing for name rights for perfumes (I am sure many of you remember the battle over Extrait le Songes by l'Artisan). I am surprised Annick Goutal brand was never sued for using names such as "Vetiver" or "Neroli", so often used by other brands...

I am still waiting for more SmellyBlog logo votes to come in before I announce the winner of an Opium Fleur Imperiale bottle (100ml) - the limited edition from last year. There are more than 200 people visiting SmellyBlog daily, so it's impossible to think that only 10 people will vote here. Surely more of you have your own opinions. So please, will you share them with us, please? The contest details are here, and you can either vote for:
logo no. 1
logo no. 2
or logo no. 3

Please leave a comment on the post showing the logo you like. The draw will take place May 31st, and the winner will be announced than. I am going to add more prizes (drumroll...):
1) Opium Fleur Imperiale (100ml)
2) Complete collection of my Vetiver Mods which were discussed quite elaborately on this blog
3) Sample set of 4 of the newest perfumes from my collection - Coralle, Tirzah, and two others that will remain secret for now except for the lucky winner...
