Last week we shared 5 different ways to incorporate scent on your wedding day, and today we’re back with a giveaway! You’re probably familiar with Cashmere Mist, a delish floral scent, that combines the essences of Moroccan Jasmine, Lily of the Valley and bergamot, against a warm background of Sandalwood, Amber and Musk. Well, Donna Karan offers gift sets that can be your bridesmaids or maid of honor special thank you package, or your own pampering box of goodies.


Here’s another little something to make you smell and feel good – Donna Karan is giving away 4 gift sets for Ruffled readers! This exclusive gift is a 1.7oz Cashmere Mist EDP and 3.4oz Body Lotion set with an SRP of $78 and value of $100. How great would that be as a little gift to yourself or to share with your bridesmaids? To enter, head on over to the Donna Karan site, then leave a comment below about what your absolute wedding weekend essentials would be- whether a stunning rehearsal dinner dress or maybe lovely lingerie? The giveaway winners will be announced in this post on June 24th.


Take a little time to check out our Cashmere Mist Pinterest board here, and the new Her Scent app that Donna Karan just launched on Facebook here. It’s a fun and helpful interactive quiz that reveals your fragrance personality and which Donna Karan fragrances are a match for you.

We’re super excited to announce the 4 winners of the exclusive Cashmere Mist giveaway…
