Well, well, well. Who would've thought that a relatively simple question about the highs and lows of 2011 would've generated so many touching responses? (If you're not sure what I'm referring to, please take a look at the comments on my previous post.) Thank you very much indeed for entering the Tauer draw and for sharing so many personal details about your lives. It's heart-warming to be reminded that although we're all separated by culture and geography, most of us have the same hopes, fears, joys and worries.
If I could give away a free bottle to each and every one of you, then I would, but I'm afraid there can be only one winner on this occasion, and the gods of Random.org have decided that it is...
Congratulations to you. Please send your postal address to persolaise at gmail dot com and be sure to let me know which Tauer fragrance you'd like to receive. (Many thanks to Andy Tauer for inviting Persolaise.com to take part in his Advent give-aways and for donating the prize.)
Commiserations to everyone else, but don't despair. Another draw will be held here on Friday for a sample set from a highly-respected niche house. Friday will also see the publication of my last-minute Christmas buying guide, so don't miss it if you need some ideas for presents. And finally, please remember to tune in to Talk Radio Europe at around 10:30 am (UK time) this Saturday to hear an interview with yours truly.
