Fab Freebie: Channel No. 125

*** This giveaway is no longer accepting entries – see who won below! ***

Random.org has done it again and selected our winner as… Chelsea (who loves the smell of coffee in the morning). Congrats!

The only fragrance we’re giving away this week is that of sweat and elbow grease (yummy, right?). Because this week’s prize comes from Channellock, who not only makes some of our favorite tools but is also celebrating 125 years of forging them right here in the USA. So they’re giving away 1 + 2 + 5 tools (that makes 8, btw) to one soon-to-be-sweaty guy or gal. That lucky lady or lad will be getting a five-piece Tool Roll, two Ratcheting Wrenches and one Professional Laser Level. Can’t ya just smell those projects in your future?

  • PRIZE: Channellock’s Tool Roll #3, Ratcheting Wrenches and Professional Laser Level (a $173 value)
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “CHANNEL ME!” and…
  • BONUS QUESTION: … tell us about your favorite smell. Do you have a go-to perfume or cologne? Are you a sucker for a particular type of scented candle? Or will you admit to something stranger like burnt popcorn, gasoline, or egg salad?
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, August 10th at 8pm EST
  • PRIZE SHIPS: All Fifty United States
  • USUAL STUFF: One entry per e-mail address is permitted. The winner will be selected using random.org and announced on Thursday as an update to this post. That’s right, come right back here on Thursday morning for the announcement of our winner. Good luck…

Note: We weren’t paid or perked for hosting this giveaway, we just do ‘em to thank you awesome folks for stopping in. See our Giveaway FAQs page for more info. Pics courtesy of Channellock.

    My favorite smell is probably the smell of any baked goods coming from the oven – bread, cookies, cake – I’m not picky :-)

    And my favorite perfume scent is Chanel N°19.

    My other favorite scent is summer in Florida when following an afternoon rain shower the smell of wet hot pavement mixes with freshly cut grass.

    My favorite scents change with the season. In the Spring, I love fresh-cut-grass. In the Summer, I love lemon. Fall means hot apple cider. During the Christmas season, I can’t get enough of that fresh-cut tree smell.

    Of course, my favorite smell of all is clean linen. I love it no matter what season and it makes doing the laundry tolerable!

    For perfumes I love Marc Jacobs Daisy….but I really love the smell of matches after they have been blown out! :)

    I love the smell of vanilla….and Clorox bleach (the powdered kind). When I was growing up my Mom ran a very clean household and used Clorox to clean floors and surfaces so the smell makes me think of home.

    My favorite smell has to be the smell of the Japanese sake brewery next door. Every morning it smells like rice cooking (similar to fresh bread) and it just fills the air with the delicious aroma!

    Today I was actually thinking I missed my go to perfume I had put on hold for a bit–Vera Wang Princess. Unfortunately it’d in storage until we move into our new home so I have to hold out a few more weeks!
