Day 4 of the advent calendar- a draw

This draw is closed.

Please visit the advent calendar for more chances to win. Thank you!

Good morning. Today is day four of the advent calendar. Today’s picture: From yesterday's acrylic painting class.
You can continue following the story of the people of Bankonupatut in my advent calendar. Please visit it daily, also to learn more about draws and more. Here is the advent calendar page.
And you can win a tauerville rollerball. (that’s a 10 ml rollerball size. You can choose your scent from the list of 4 scents that I offer there on tauerville: ROSE, VANILLA, INCENSE or AMBER) Just leave a comment here and I will pick a winner in the coming days.

After yesterday's charity price on the advent calendar: I feel this is a right mix there, and I am looking forward to more.

And I was happy to read all your notes about your happy days (with some exceptions). I had many happy days in 2015. Tauerville was one reason why. I so love what I did there, and what happened since I started. Amazing! Creative outlet sounds still perfect to me and I can't wait for 2016.
Fineprint: we pick a winner using The discovery set ships from Zurich, Switzerland or from the US. And wherever you live, local taxes, VAT, and import fee may apply and are not covered by Tauer. The winner is responsible for making sure that they are allowed to import the prize. The draw is open for anybody, but winners from these countries should provide a mailing address elsewhere: Italy, Russia, Spain, Croatia, Greece.
Good luck!

    I'd choose Vanilla, which is at the top of my wishlist. I also really want to try Amber, even though I don't need another amber, because I'm sure your take on the theme is fantastic! Thank you for making smaller, more affordable sizes.

  • Great story Andy! Reminds me of one I heard about a Christmas crocodile.

    I have a lot of decorations to put up today - I'd better make it snappy or the day will be gone in a flurry of baubles.

    I'm enjoying the story and wondering what the intrepid nomads will get up to next.

  • This is one of my favorites of your paintings. Just beautiful and a nice way to start the day. Thanks for your generosity!

  • My dear Andy--love this year's Advent adventure with stories and art and the spirit of the season of giving. Thank you for your wonderful scents and, as this is my birthday, I hope I am the lucky winner today!

  • Best wishes to all! I have not tried any of your perfumes yet (and I really want to), but I've blown my fragrance budget for the year. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

  • I appreciate that you've added charitable contributions to this year's advent calendar. I'm enjoying reading about the different organizations you've selected.

  • Philip Faustin 4. December 2015 at 14:05

    I have rose and incense flash. Would love to smell Amber flash.

  • Hi Andy,
    Thanks for the draw. I love your perfumes. If I win, I'll choose the Rose one.
    Greetings from Hungary.

  • Thank you, Andy, for the story you has shared with us. I would like to reply in more sentences but I am not very skilled in English. So thanks for your "professional" clicable advent calendar and also for today s draw. Have a nice day! Lubka

  • Good morning and thank you for the lovely visuals to start the day!

  • Happy Friday! Thank you again for your generous drawing. Love the paintings and stories! :-)

  • Advent calendars have been a favorite tradition since I was a little kid, and this is one of the best; thanks for keeping this tradition alive & thanks for the draw. I love the image of milking the camels.

  • I am new to fragrances. Well, I have been using couple of colognes that wife bought for me years ago. But a few months ago something changed(mid life crises I guess) and I got interested in fragrances. I am now trying to smell all fragrances(male, female,unisex, spices, soaps, sewage). I have yet to try your line but have heard great things.
    Keep up the good work

  • I love the advent calendar theme. Every day a new surprise. Thank you for the draw!

  • Andy, what a lovely painting!

  • I hope I'll win.

  • Please include me in the draw, & I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

  • Im not very knowledgeable about perfumes but a family member gifted me your Incense Rose and I adore it. Looking forward to trying more!

  • Love your perfumes, dear Andy! Have a great weekend!

  • That painting reminds me of a river in a desert :) Have a lovely Friday, all!

  • Andy, once again thank you for the generous gifting. I love your Rose Flash scent and would love to see all the images you have created in relation to the scent.

  • Dear Andy, I love your pictures - especially the drawing of the sand dune. And your story is very good too. what will happen next? i'll have to tune in tomorrow to find out! best regards from the rainy pacific northwest.

  • I would have a hard time choosing a scent! Thank you for the fun giveaways!

  • I love every scent you have created, thank you for the chance for more in my collection!

  • Really intrigued by the story! Look forward to reading the rest.

  • I'm late to the party! Have to bookmark the advent page so I don't forget. I also need to catch upon your charity with the Advent - you are such a dear man, Andy, I think it's a wonderful idea. I hope you're getting ready for Christmas and enjoying the fun leading up to it! :)

    Much love, Devon

  • Hi Andy,
    I like to see your paintings. When I was a kid, my father gave me acrylic paints, brushes and canvases for Christmas. It was the nicest Christmas gift I have ever received! Have a great day!

  • I wonder what scent Santa wears...

  • I like this one. It is beautiful and serene.
    Thanks for all the wonderful advent events :)

  • I enjoy reading your daily story. Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Hello! Happy Friday and a great week-end to all :)

  • Thank you again, Andy! I look forward to this event every year.

  • Happy Advent, Andy

  • It's a beautiful, sunny day where I am. This just makes it better! Thanks for the draw.

  • Having spent the day immersed in the wonderful scent of pine sap whilst splitting and stacking firewood, I'm enjoying a much needed rest. Looking forward to a shower and spritzing myself with L'air du Desert Marocain.

  • Thank you for your generosity and making us all think of others by highlighting charitable contributions during Advent.

  • Thank you for the drawing. I am eagerly reading the story posted day by day!

  • What a wonderful opportunity to get to know your fragrances for those of us who have not done it yet! Thank you and I wish you have a great weekend!

  • So glad you are emphasizing charity this Christmas, but also glad to have a chance to win a rollerball.

  • Thank you so much for organising the yearly advent giveaway, Andy!

  • That painting is just stunning.

  • Thanks, Andy, for your generosity! I hope you're having a wonderful holiday season!

  • Ooooh! It's Andy's Advent time - thanks for continuing to make the festive season suitably well-scented :) please think of the elderly with no family this Christmas - a chat, some wee gifties or a trip down memory lane with the aid of a few scented samples & well- chosen music tracks would make the world of difference :)

  • Ms Matabo had me giggling, looking foward to seeing what happens next. Hope everyone has/is having a good day! Best from winterthur

  • Hello Andy! Thank you for the advent calendar. What a wonderful idea! I'm sorry that I missed the first few days. I'll be sure to come back every day to see what you're up to now.

    All the best for the holidays!

    I'm enjoying the story and the novel Advent calendar thinking.

    Perhaps the camels will have more to contribute, in line with the Discworld camels, than just waste materials?!


  • Love the picture you have for us today. The colors are beautiful. We're having nice sunny day today and since it's Friday, people seem to be in good spirits wherever I go. I'm enjoying the story and must go now to read today's paragraphs.

  • Thanks for the Advent calendar and for your beautiful perfumes.

  • Thank you for the giveaway and for the explorer set I've already enjoyed.

  • Thank you for this opportunity, Andy!

  • Glad to participate again! Thank you, Andy!

  • Loving the annual festive tradition. Thanks so much!

  • Robert Matthews 4. December 2015 at 23:25

    Last night was the first snowfall of the year, so calendar be damned: it's winter.

  • This may amount to a slight disruption of the current celebration, but I want to take this occasion to celebrate the wonders of the 10ml Tauerville rollerball! It's such a merry format for perfume addicts! :D

  • hotlanta linda 4. December 2015 at 23:43

    Warm colors to warm us inside and out!! :-) :-) `Adventure of a Lifetime` from Coldplay!!

  • I am very much enjoying the stories of the dunes. I feel transported to another place and time as I read. Thank you for the adventure.

  • a Tauer rollerball would honestly be the best Christmas present i can think of, crossing my fingers.

  • And oops - missed the advent day thanks to the time zone difference. Please ignore!

  • I missed yesterday's charity giveaway, what a pity :( I hope next time I'll remember.

  • The Advent Calendar has become a tradition with me now. It is part of Christmas. I have a rollerball in the Tauerville Incense Flash and I love using it. After a rough day at work, I roll it on and am instantly transported to a better place. I am loving the story this year and clicking on the calendar. Thank you, Andy

  • Thanks for the giveaway- not sure about the time difference- discard if this is too late!

  • What a beautiful painting Andy. Hope you had a fabulous day. Huzzah for Tauerville! I have loved the three I sampled through Olfactif.

  • Many thanks for the giveaway. Hope I'm not too late.

  • Thanks for the chance

  • I'm so happy I'll be going home for Christmas :)
    Thank you for the draw!
