We’ll admit, it’s a little strange for us here at The Beguiling to be giving away a set of perfume (perfumes?), but this is a pretty cool perfume.

Pop singer Gwen Steffani just released a set of signature perfumes in her “Harajuku Lovers” apparel line. It’s a collection of five perfumes, each inspired by Gwen and a member of her crew, and each bottle is actually shaped like the little chibi-versions of the ladies. Check it out:

We’ve got a set of all five fragrances in the 30ml/1oz size, with a retail value of more than $250 (perfume is expensive, yo!). They’re going to make an amazing last-minute gift for whoever wins them. Speaking of which, here’s how you can win:


  1. Subscribe to The Beguiling’s events mailing list. You can subscribe at, in the upper-right corner of the page. Winner must be subscribed to The Beguiling mailing list for the duration of the contest to claim their prize.
  2. Send an e-mail to with your name, telephone number, and “HARAJUKU LOVERS” in the subject line.
  3. Send that e-mail before Monday, December 22nd 2008 at 11:59pm.
  4. Winner will be determined by random draw on the morning of Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008.
  5. Entrants must be 18 years of age or older (sorry kids, get your parents to enter for you). 5. Only one entry per household.
  6. Odds of winning depend on number of entrants, but are roughly 250:1.
  7. Not open to residents of Quebec because they’ve got pretty harsh rules about this sort of thing.

The winner will be contacted Tuesday morning. Good luck!
