12 days of Christmas giveaway: How to win fabulous gifts from Tiffany & Co., Miu Miu, Bang & Olufsen and more, courtesy of Buro. Singapore
'Tis the season
No matter if you've been naughty or nice this year, we all deserve to be treated well this season because 2018 was absolutely brutal. First, Uber exited Singapore, then Anna Faris and Chris Pratt went kaput, and Stephen Hawking was laid to rest. Because life wasn't hard enough, there was no Game of Thrones to let off steam with. Sorry for the reminders; we had to make a point.
As respite to the terrible awfuls, we're treating friends of Buro. Singapore and our beloved fans (that's you!) to 12 gifts over the next 12 days leading up to Christmas. From earsets, fragrance coffrets, to getaway packages, check back daily to find out what we're giving away. Details, after the jump.
Day 12: Google Pixel 3 XL and Pixel Stand
Here to beat out its previous edition, the Google Pixel 3 XL comes with a fleet of upgrades, centered around the buzzword — artificial intelligence. Case in point? A 12.2 megapixel rear-facing and a eight megapixel front-facing camera with a shutter that's branded with AI. Charging is entirely wireless with the Pixel Stand, and at the same time, your phone becomes a display (akin to a smart home set-up) that plays music, transition to a photo frame when idle plus a handful of other tricks unique only to the Pixel 3.
Day 11: Westin Langkawi Weekend Getaway Package
There's nothing better than a short weekend getaway with a loved one. Westin Langkawi has got you covered — from the roundtrip airport transfers in a private vehicle to an hour spa treatment at their award-winning Heavenly Spa by Westin. No weekend away is complete without tipples and good food — a pre-dinner cocktail or mocktail and a buffet dinner is thrown in as well. Sounds like a brillant weekend to us.
Voucher validity: 1 February 2019 - 1 July 2019. Blackout dates apply (10-12 December 2018, 24 - 30 March 2019). Offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer. Additional T&C's apply.
Day 10: Shangri-La KL Getaway Package
You'll be surprised at what three days away from Singapore can do for you. Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur invites you to stay in their executive room with breakfast for two. With direct access to their Horizon Club, you can be reassured that you'll be taken of — we're talking afternoon tea and evening cocktails that are all prepared by chefs on site. With signature massages that promise an hour of escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, a rejuvenated mind and body is in order.
Prior reservation is required. Please bring original voucher and present during check-in.
Day 9: Bang & Olufsen Earset
Bang & Olufsen has made a bold move by bringing back a beloved earset from the '90s. Don't worry, there's none of that broker/property agent-bluetooth headset aesthetic; but instead with B&O's magic fingers, comes the obliteration of the once-dated connotation. You can effortlessly control your music, pick up calls or activate Siri — via bluetooth and its built-in microphone — without touching that iPhone in your purse.
Day 8: Jyunka Beauty set
This beauty bundle by Jyunka brings together a powerful blend of radiance-boosting ingredients like vitamin B and sodium hyaluronate to retain the skin's moisture. With three parts — a rejuvenating toner, an eye cream, and an anti-ageing serum — it's a streamlined skincare set with simplicity at its core. The Jyunka beauty set comprises the M+ Fluid at 30ml, Ageless Eye at 15ml and Ageless Emulsion at 50ml.
Day 7: Burberry Her set
An energetic spirit of a Londoner is unveiled in Burberry Her, a fresh and fruity floral eau de parfum by Burberry. Fronting the campaign is British actress and model Cara Delevingne who embodies the vibrant nature of the fragrance. The Burberry Her EDP set comprises the eau de parfum at 100ml and Limited Edition Londoner pins.
Day 6: Burberry Blush Festive set
If jasmine and pomegranate took a bath in rose petals, then you'd have My Burberry Blush EDP, a delicate, fresh fragrance emblematic of spring. With a signature design inspired by the buttons of a Burberry trench coat, the bottle reflects confidence and femininity in a sophisticated pink hue. My Burberry Blush EDP set includes the eau de parfum at 90ml, a Mini Cat Lash mascara and a Liquid Lip Velvet in the shade of Dark Rosewood.
Day 5: Tiffany EDP Christmas Edition
This Tiffany eau de parfum is an exquisitely vibrant, warm fragrance that envelops the skin with notes of mandarin, patchouli and soft floral musk. And just like the opening scene of Breakfast at Tiffany's, this fragrance boils that experience into a scent and leaves you with an appetite for luxury.
Day 4: Miu Miu Fleur D'Argent EDP
How does a scent inspired by "the layering of a structured jacket over a dazzling dress" translate onto the skin? Starring a new top note of tuberose and undertones of musk and akigalawood, the Mui Mui Fleur D’Argent toes the line between fresh and floral, and conjures up words like "feminine," "intense," and "Parisian cool girl." C'est magnifique.
Day 3: Chloe Nomade EDP set
Founder of Chloé, Gaby Aghion used to say: "My colours come from Egypt." It is this spirit of escapism from which perfumer Quentin Bisch derived his formulation for the dreamy floral luminescence of a scent he calls Nomade. Following a burst of saccharine sweetness, the ladylike mirabelle plum lingers alongside the freshness of freesia, before continuing its wanderlust with oak moss. The Chloe Nomade EDP set comprises the eau de parfum at 50ml, a miniature at 5ml, and a body lotion.
Day 2: Calvin Klein Women EDP Christmas set
Calvin Klein Women — the first fragrance developed under the vision of the label's chief creative officer Raf Simons — in many ways echo his vision of the eclectic identities the fairer sex possesses. Never just one individual, embodying only one persona, Calvin Klein Women upholds her diversity through a paradox — the woody floral scent. At first whiff, eucalyptus acorns. Then, orange flower followed by Alaskan cedarwood. Calvin Klein Women EDP Christmas set includes the eau de parfum at 100ml, a miniature at 5ml and a body lotion at 100ml.
Day 1: Marc Jacobs Daisy Love EDT Christmas set
An update to the original Marc Jacobs Daisy, Marc Jacobs Daisy Love effuses top notes of crystalised cloudberries before settling into cashmere musk and driftwood. At its heart, creamy daisy tree petals threatening to send hearts aflutter, whether you're in love this holiday season or not. The Marc Jacobs Daisy Love EDT Christmas set includes the eau de toilette at 50ml, body lotion at 75ml and shower gel at 75ml.
