Black Friday has past, and now Cyber Monday is upon us. The gift-giving season approaches implacably, jingle-bells jingling with every step of its inexorable tread. Or so I have rather vaguely gathered from overhearing others - like so many unrepentant bachelors, I have only the most fleeting and insubstantial awareness of most holidays, excepting the one or two that tend to involve females dressing in a particularly provocative manner at parties. Nonetheless, even I can put two-and-two together eventually, particularly when I start hearing the words "special promotion" occurring with ever-increasing frequency about the office.
And yes, as you may have already guessed, that's just what we have for you today - and doubly so. Firstly, from now up through December 31st, all Smokingpipes customers can expect to receive 10% any Lampe Berger fragrance lamps, as well as the fragrances themselves - plus a full 20% off of all Easy Scent products, too. If you're a married man, this might occur to you as particularly advantageous towards acquiring certain pipe or tobacco purchases during this special time of the year. Let the watchword for this season be: Diplomacy. On that matter, I'll say nothing more, but let us pretend I've just nudged you with my elbow and let loose with a conspirational wink. Assuming the missus isn't watching, that is.
And, well now, speaking of conspirational, wouldn't you know it - we're also offering free shipping on all orders over $50. Pure chance, that. Pure chance also that this offer is also good up through December 31st - the exact same timeframe as that other offer I was talking about. You know; the one on all those lovely, decorative fragrance lamps and their various aromatic oils, and such. Some coincidences are just too hard to believe.
Well, enough dwelling on life's curious little circumstances, we have an update to roll out. Today you'll find going up on offer several new lamps from Lampe Berger (nudge), a sharp-looking humidor from Savinelli, a convenient ashtray-and-stand combination by Peterson, plus the introduction of both Savinelli's flavorful little Apertif cigars, and a limited-edition Borkum Riff blend. Of course, for the main attraction, we then have pipes - lots of pipes. Amongst them you'll find the works of the renowned Wolfgang Becker and the fresh, new Michal Novak, plus some very fine Dunhills, all on top of dozensupon dozens of briars from of Tsuge, Johs, Luciano, Chacom, Stanwell, Savinelli, and Peterson - not to mention a good selection of English and Italian estates.
