Giveaway: Lavender scented paper

Lady Ambrosia's creations box

I received this fine lavender-scented Southworth Fine Parchment paper as a generous gift from a new pen pal. She didn't ask for a review, didn't ask for anything - just sent me the paper because she thought I might like it. I am just touched by her generosity, but alas... my sensitive nose has gotten the better of me. I'm really sensitive to scents, and it's just touch and go whether I can use any scented product or not. (My experience with the J. Herbin scented inks was atrocious... those will probably show up in a blog giveaway someday soon! I have a "spring resolution" to do more blog giveaways, aren't you excited? :-)

Unfortunately the smell of this paper, while not at all unpleasant, is just too strong for me; I can't enjoy it or review it, but I'd really like to pass it along to someone who might like using it.

Wrapped scented paper

Those of you who've talked about scented inks not retaining scent, or scented paper not holding its scent... I haven't tested this, of course, but I really think that the fragrance would withstand a journey in the postal service.

Lavender scented parchment paper

Southworth parchment paper is known among fountain pen aficionados as taking ink beautifully, and the paper itself looks very pretty - like old parchment. As you can see, she wraps it up very prettily once it is scented.

1. To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post. One comment/entry per person, please.

2. No anonymous comments will be approved. You need a blogger profile to enter this giveaway (simply because I need to know who you are - I'm not going to count through "anonymous #7"), and if you don't have a blogger profile yet, just make one. It's fast, easy and free, doesn't require a blog, and I think only requires a valid email address.

3. Sorry about this one, but weight and size restrictions mean I can only send this domestically: U.S.A. addresses only, please.

4. The deadline for comments/entries is 12pm (Eastern Standard/NYC time) on Wednesday, March 17, when I will choose a winner (most likely with a random number generator).

EDIT: WINNER = INDIGO! I need your address.
