An awesome excuse to go shopping at Twyla


Listen up, perfume fans! You may have recently seen my rave reviews of the new(ish) online perfume store Twyla Perfumes & Apothecary here and here. Well, Twyla contacted me and she would like to do a special offer for readers of my blog. From now for the next month you can get 20% off all purchases from Twyla’s shop. So, go forth and shop!

How do I get that 20% discount then?
Simply use the code PRISSYPERFUME at the end of checkout when the Paypal process is almost complete. Don’t panic and think you missed it, because it does wait until the very end to prompt for it, so keep an eye out.

Can I buy samples of limited edition perfumes?
Yes, you can! Twyla sells samples in sets of 3, called Little Drops of Poison, and you can buy samples of any of her perfumes, including her limited edition scents.

And here’s the cool part. If you buy a sample of a limited edition and it’s been taken down, you have a month's grace to request a full bottle purchase and Twyla will create a special listing for you. Just contact her via her site. This is a great deal , because as we foreigners especially know, sometimes the mail can be deathly slow, and it’s horrible when you wait forever for an LE sample, only to find that when you finally get it and fall in love with it, it’s too late to get a full bottle.

And on that note, Twyla has released her Valentine Bouquet – 5 chocolate-themed scents that sound AH-MAAAAZING. You’d better believe I’m going to be all over those. They will be up until February 15, so get in there.

How long is this deal running for?
I just said that above. You’re skimming, aren’t you? One month from now, so you have a bit of time to get your shopping list together.

What if I want to ask questions about the perfumes first? I have allergies/I don’t know what benzoin smells like/I want something that smells like X?
If you have any questions about Twyla’s perfumes, go ahead and contact her directly – she is super friendly and approachable. She has a contact option on her site (see the little contact widget on the right edge of the page), and she also spends a fair bit of time interacting with her customers and friends on Facebook here.

P.S. If you need even more proof that this is a store worth checking out, read these reviews of some of the perfumes I sent over to Su recently to play with here and here.

    1. Ordered full bottles of Slammerkin, Milk Flower and samples of Bone Flower, The Golden Lily and Only Alice! I may order again to our new address. Thanks so much for the code :)x

    2. Hey, thanks to Tywla - I'm just the messenger. :-)

      I'm debating whether to bypass sampling Slammerkin and just go for a full bottle. I have not had a disappointment yet with buying unsniffed the full bottles - I have 6 that I ordered before I ever even smelled one of her scents!

  2. Mmmm.. what a great deal! Me wants! But the international shipping costs a bit too much at Twyla's... *sigh* Ok for full sizes, but not for samples...

  4. DAMN YOU DEE FOR ENABLING ME!! *shakes fist*
    But yay, because I did have a list already, starting with Slammerkin, and if I don't buy them now, it's like losing money, right? RIGHT?!
