I Coloniali Fragrance Giveaway!

Happy Bank Holiday Weekend you lovely lot! I have FIVE gorgeous body fragrances to give away from I Coloniali. Funny that I was only talking about body mists the other week.. The scents that I have for you are: Sensual Silk, Ardent Amber, Luxurious Datura, Sexy Vanilla and Angel Musk. I’m laughing quite loudly about the one named “Sexy Vanilla” but I have smelt it and it’s very edible. (Disclaimer: not literally edible, it’s a figure of speech.)

To enter the giveaway, you must be a member of A Model Recommends: ExclusiveFree to join, an amazing newsletter every season, sign up here. Then leave me a comment below stating which of the fragrances you’d like to win – you can see descriptions of each on the Marks & Spencer website. Make sure you leave me your email address where prompted in the comment form, otherwise I can’t get hold of you to let you know that you’ve won!

All entries by the end of the Bank Holiday, please: 23.59 on the 27th August 2012.


  1. I would loooooooove to win anyone of the I Coloniali scents, i know this brand from years gone by, their soap is AMAZING a woody sexy November bomfire day kinda smell, xxxx

  2. Sensual silk please :)

  3. I’d love to try Sexy Vanilla, not just because of its ridiculous name..!

  4. What no Animal Oud?? :(
    I’ll grab the amber then, I’m in desperate need for something to smell animalistic during the fall. You know.. being locked up in a room with someone and every inch of you is focused on seduction? That in a bottle please! So amber it is.

  5. I used to use these products all the time and loved their subtlem, interesting fragrances. Thanks so much for pointing out to me that M&S stocks them!

    They all sound gorgeous, but my favourite – from the words alone – is Sensual Silk. A combination of rose and spice sounds delicious!
