Giveaway: Win a bottle of Tru Blooms eau de parfum ($65 value)

Certain city odors can intoxicate the senses (and, Chicagoans, I’m not talking about the Red Line late-night).

This fall, local perfume company Tru Fragrance decided to bottle the city’s essence in an exclusive, limited edition scent, called Tru Blooms Chicago. I had the pleasure of testing it out, and in a nutshell, it’s fresh, light and youthful, and can be worn year-round.

The scent is built around three floral notes – violet, lavender and rose – extracted from flowers planted in more than 22 plots across the city. I actually walked by one just last week on my way home from work (pictured below).

Given it’s exclusivity, this one’s a must-have. Perfume hoarder (*raises hand*) or not — and regardless of your roots — here’s a chance for you to bottle up the city’s essence and win this limited edition parfum. ($65 value)

It’s super simple to enter and you’ve got four chances to win, just…
