News From Across the Pond: The Penhaligon's "Olfactory Owl" is Loose!

Now I know as a beauty blogger many companies get what amounts to free advertising from sites like mine when we re-post press releases, but this was just so inventive I had to share it with you!

"Penhaligon’s, the fine English fragrance house founded in 1870, is delighted to announce that an Olfactory Owl will be touring London during December. The Owl, created in homage to their
beautifully illustrated Christmas Gift Boxes, will be popping up in various locations around London to spread some festive fragrant joy and offer exclusive discount vouchers and perfume samples.
Dressed in Victorian finery, the Olfactory Owl will be journeying across London on foot and by tube and bus, taking in some of London’s iconic landmarks and shopping hotspots.

The Owl will be promoted via the Penhaligon’s Facebook and Twitter accounts and customers willbe invited to submit pictures of the Olfactory Owl to win Christmas prizes. Customers can keep up to date with the Owl’s progress by checking his schedule on Facebook and Twitter and by following theOwl’s tweets during his journeys.
  • Thursday 16th December – Oxford Street, Bond Street, Savile Row, Burlington Arcade, Fortnum &
  • Mason
  • Saturday 18th December – Regent Street and Trafalgar Square
  • Sunday 19th December – Knightsbridge, Sloane Square, Green Park, Piccadilly
  • Tues 21st December – Covent Garden, Somerset House, British Museuml
Personally, I think if I saw this Olfactory Owl on the street I'd be a little scared. But you know he has goodies for you that would make the moment of terrifying fright bearable.

If you are over in London and happen to run into the Olfactory Owl, please send me a picture of you with him and let me know what he gives you! I'd love to know!
