Balenciaga L’Essence Contest

There are so many contests going on these days and I would highly recommend you  taking a  part at least in some of them.

I can’t actually believe that I am typing this as I am so apathetic when it comes to contests and even giveaways!!!

But this year I’ve decided to take a part in those that I find interesting because a) it’s fun b) some contests are very challenging which is great c) you need to try new things from time to time.

You can actually follow me on Twitter as I try to RT and share some interesting competitions.

So here is the competition from Balenciaga that I really like.

From November 18th to December 9th, Balenciaga invites you to share your interpretation of L’Essence – ‘a daring and expressive fragrance brought to life at night – submitting images depicting late-night mood and attitude. Be inspired, take your shot and submit it to’

Judged by a team of pre-eminent international bloggers from, 40 images will be collated as a framed artwork & winning entrants will receive a candle and 50 ml bottle of Balenciaga L’Essence.

Follow the weekly winning gallery on

‘Late-night mood and attitude’ sounds right up my way.

I actually have their first fragrance so that would be cool to try the second one.

PS. As I was typing this I read that  you should  ‘avoid portraits or obvious depictions of people’s faces’ and I had a beautiful photo with the makeup and styling I did on one girl taken at night. Looks like I won’t be able to take a part. But I still think it’s a great contest!

  1. I’ve recently taken to liking contests and even won a giveaway last week! The Balenciaga contest sounds great. Too bad you can’t submit your photo. I’d love to see it anyway. Following you on twitter so I can hear all about more contests!
