Tru Blooms Fragrance: For the ChiTown Lover in You [Enter to Win]


What happens when you bottle up a lovely mix of rose, lavender and violet notes, all grown and harvested exclusively by Chicago farmers? You end up with the new fragrance, Tru Blooms Chicago

Wondering where the ingredients are sourced? Well, they come from perfume gardens all over the city, including the ones along the iconic Michigan Avenue. And with Tru Blooms being the “first-ever fragrance made from indigenous-sourced ingredients grown by the residents for whom it’s created”, it doesn’t get more authentic than that.

Thanks to the lovely team at Tru Blooms, I was able to get my hands on a bottle. I’m not a perfume connoisseur, but I must admit that I’m a fan of this fragrance. Not only because I have a soft spot for all things Chicago-related, but also due to the fact that I have an obsession for all things infused with lavender.

It is the perfect gift for any Chicagoan, from those currently living in the city to those residing in other parts of the world but want (or need) a reminder of home.

Tru Blooms Chicago is available for purchase at several Chicago-area retailers and Water Tower Place (click HERE for the locations). BUT there is a way you can win a complimentary bottle. I’ve teamed up with Tru Blooms to offer one lucky Twitter follower a bottle of the Chicago-bred fragrance!

Here’s how to enter:

Complete the following phrase and tweet it to @chitown_fashion and @TruBloomsCHI:

“The best thing about Chicago is ________”

Pretty simple, right? Get those tweets in by 11:59PM CST on Monday, December 17 . Then, we’ll announce the winner the next day.

Best of luck to you all!
