Media & Disclosure

Disclosure (updated March 2013)

First, I want to thank you for reading APB. I hope you like the content you find here, and I encourage you to contact me with any questions you might have.

Here are the specifics about how I run APB.

  • I don’t write sponsored posts, and I don’t participate in any linking/affiliate programs.
  • The advertisements on my blog are provided via WordAds by WordPress.
  • I am sometimes given free perfume by perfume companies and PR folks. I don’t seek this out, but if I think I might like the perfume, I accept the offer with the understanding that it doesn’t guarantee I will write about it. If I write about a product I received for free, I disclose it.
  • I occasionally sell perfume that was given to me on my “Perfume for Sale” page. I understand that some bloggers don’t do this, and that some do in a less open way. And I understand that some readers might disagree with this practice. If I ever got to the point where I was making more money than I spend running my blog, I might reconsider. But so far that hasn’t come close to happening!

In short, I blog for myself and for you, not for money or free products. Thank you for reading!

Media

I am sometimes contacted by people who want to invite me to review products, participate in various perfume-related thingamajigs, and so forth. If you are one of those people, thank you for reaching out to me. I work in communications myself, so I appreciate the job you all are doing. The information below describes what kinds of activities I do and don’t participate in.

If you want me to review a product or write a sponsored post. I’m sorry, but I don’t write sponsored posts or write solicited product reviews on my blog. If you want me to write a review for another site or a magazine, please get in touch (see below).

If you want to send me a press release. By all means, please do. You can email me at anotherperfumeblog(at)hotmail(dot)com. However, please note that I do not routinely post announcements or similar on my blog. Also, please don’t email me the same press release repeatedly. If you want to ensure I’ve seen your release, send me an email, and I will confirm. Lastly, if I ask you to remove me from your distribution list, please do so.

If you want to invite me to write or participate in an event. Great! I like keeping up with industry events, and I love being invited to write or contribute content to other endeavors. You can email me at anotherperfumeblog(at)hotmail(dot)com. But please be aware that I’m unlikely to sign on for opportunities that are strictly promotional or commercial in nature.

If you have any questions or feel I’ve left anything out of this page, let me know. Again, thank you for reading.

  4. I’m hoping you can help me. I apologize if this is not the correct way to contact you on your site, but I thought this may work.

    I am looking for what my Mother (I am her loving son) has described as Oscar de la Renta’s Red. “The one with the red top.” However all I can find is “Red Satin” online. Is this what I am searching for? She fell in love with it more than 2 years ago, so I am not sure if I have it right.

    Any chance you can help out?

    • Hello! Thanks for getting in touch, and I’m sorry it has taken me a bit to respond. Unfortunately, I run into the same dead ends that you do. Oscar de la Renta doesn’t seem to have made a perfume called just “Red.” As you said, there is Red Satin. Other perfumes with red tops, made by OdlR are Red Orchid and Rosamor. Red Satin launched in 2007, so in terms of the timeframe it could be correct. Are you trying to keep the search a secret, or can you ask her if she was sure it was Oscar de la Renta and sure it only was called Red? The first perfume that jumped to mind when I read your message was Elizabeth Arden’s Red Door. Bill Blass made a perfume that is just called Red, and it also has a red cap (sort of). It launched in 2009. If you want to do a little more research yourself, you can check Fragrantica. Let me know if you can’t get any more information from your mom, and I can post a request for help from my readers.

  5. Geoffrey Beene’s “RED” also comes to mind; the perfume was encapsulated in a Crystal-clear Ball with with square-topped stopper and separate stand/holder; the Eau de Toilette/de Cologne (dependent on the market) was bottled in a wine-coloured fluted cylinder with a tasseled stopper; the fragrance itself less memorable, but still worthy of consideration.

    Originally conceived by Parfums Jacueline Cochrane the trademarks are now owned by Benckiser.

  7. Hello, I would like to send you some samples of our fine perfumes for a possible review. See our website and choose 5 x 2ml vials. Let me know your address and I will post them. Cheers, Howard.

    • Thank you for the offer, Howard! However, at the moment, I am absolutely swimming in samples. I’ll have to pass, but really do appreciate you stopping by. Best of luck with your line!
