10 Days of Giveaways: Comment to Win Usher’s UR Perfume for Women

Published in: Fragrance, Just For Fun

The giveaway is now closed, and I’m contacting the winner by e-mail. Good luck!


Since dropping his self-titled debut back in 1994, Usher has sold more than 40 million albums and taken home five Grammies to go with his six-pack abs.


There was a while there where you couldn’t go 15 minutes listening to pop radio without hearing one of his songs. I like a few of ’em (sooo guilty of bumping Love in this Club on full blast!)… I’m looking forward to his upcoming CD, Monster, which comes out this December.

Like so many other mega-star singers, Usher branched out into acting (remember the cinematic masterpiece known as She’s All That?), product marketing, and even purchased a stake in a professional sports team (the Cleveland Cavaliers). Not content to stop there, though, he’s also released several scents for ladies and gents.

Which leads us to today’s celebrity fragrance giveaway. Today’s features one of the crooner’s fragrances for women.

The prize

One lucky lady will take home a bottle of Usher Raymond’s (that’s his real name) UR Eau de Parfum (a $68 value), a fruity floral with notes of peach nectar, white freesia, jasmine, violet leaf, pink peony, honeysuckle, musk, coconut milk and praline.

It’ll have you quoting Usher in no time: “Yeah, yeah, yeah… yeah, yeah. Yeah.” 🙂

    Hmmm… fave 90’s song, that’s hard. Right now I’d say Violet by Hole, but that might be heavily influenced by the awesome music video 😛

  8. Anneli, Tabs no1 fan! says:

    My fave 90’s song is Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve. It gives me chills down my spine (the good kind!) every time I hear it and it remembers me of when my first true love played it on the violin for me during a blackout when we didn’t have anything else to do. Sounds so cheesy, but it was very romantic. 🙂
