The Giveaway begins on Friday, July 30th, 2023 at 05:00:00 p.m. Central European Time (“CET”), and ends on Wednesday, October 31st, 2023 at 11:59:59 p.m. CET (the “Entry Period”). A random drawing will be conducted on Friday, November 3rd, 2023. The winner will be announced on November 3rd, 2023, in our e-newsletter and social media channels.

There will be one (1) unique random drawing to award one (1) Prize. Entry in the Giveaway does not constitute entry into any other promotion, contest, giveaway, or competition. By participating in the Giveaway, each Entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these rules, the Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor, and the Administrator whose decisions shall be final and legally binding in all respects and not subject to further review in any forum. Entries submitted after the Entry Period will not be eligible.


ARTICLE 3 – How To Enter

There is only one way to enter: by submitting a fully completed website form on the Giveaway page of the Le Parfum website (https://www.leparfummagazine.com/giveawaynyc/) during the Entry Period. Every fully completed submitted form counts for one entry. Entries that are incomplete or do not adhere to the rules or specifications of the Giveaway may be disqualified at the sole discretion of the Sponsor. With submitting an entry, the Entrant agrees to the Giveaway’s Official Rules.

There are two ways to increase your chances of winning:

  1. Chance booster 1: share a post on your Instagram feed about Le Parfum magazine chapter 2 using the hashtags: #leparfumgiveaway and #scentxplore2023. Promoting Le Parfum chapter 2 on your social media will count for an extra entry in the Giveaway. The extra entry after posting on Instagram can be redeemed by filling in YES on the website form on the chance booster 1 question and filling in your Instagram username before submitting. More posts on Instagram do not count for extra entries. The exposure will be reviewed by the Administrator (Le Parfum needs to be visible in text and image/video, and be posted with the hashtags  #leparfumgiveaway and #scentxplore2023).
  2. Chance booster 2: add the unique code on your golden ticket in the Le Parfum chapter 2 mystery box to the website form before submitting. Each Le Parfum Chapter 2 mystery box, that can be ordered through https://www.leparfummagazine.com/product/le-parfum-mystery-box-2/, during the Entry Period contains a golden ticket with a code written on it. This code is personally attributed to the customer who ordered the mystery box on the website and is therefore non-transferable. The code can be used only once by entering it in the website form on the Giveaway page of the Le Parfum website. Entering your unique code will count for five additional entries in the Giveaway.

Entrants may only enter the Giveaway once by submitting a fully completed website form on the Giveaway page of the Le Parfum website. You may not enter more times than indicated by using multiple email addresses, identities, or devices to circumvent the rules. If you use fraudulent methods or otherwise attempt to circumvent the laws of the Giveaway, your submission may be disqualified at the sole discretion of the Sponsor.

Your submission can be boosted to a maximum of seven entries in total, including the extra entries which can be earned by the two chance boosters. (1) By submitting a fully completed website form on the Giveaway page of the Le Parfum website counts for one entry. (2) Promoting Le Parfum chapter 2 on social media (with above mentioned requirements) adds one extra entry. (3) Purchasing the mystery box and including the unique code to the form adds five more entries to your name. Every Entrant can submit one form on the website, so if you want to make use of the extra chances to win, the actions have to be taken before submitting the entry.


ARTICLE 4 – Limit

You may enter one (1) time by submitting a fully completed website form on the Giveaway page of the Le Parfum website (https://www.leparfummagazine.com/giveawaynyc/) during the Entry Period.
