No festive cheer for SCB

December 21, 2007
The very lovely, Jennifer, of SCB Marketing[who’s responsible for plugging the new Diesel fragrance via commenting on this, and many other, blogs] sent me yet another email today…

Hi Cillian,

I hope you’ve had the chance to check out the new limited-edition Diesel Fuel For Life gifts I e-mailed you about the other day. If not, I could certainly re-send information and/or jepgs. They’re so unusual and interesting–and totally worth a look.

My response?

Dearest Jennifer,

I’m sure they’re unusual, interesting and then some. But to be quite frank I’ll never feature this particular product on my blog. Thanks for your interest but I’d appreciate it if you wouldn’t harass me henceforth.



Yes, I know it’s somewhat immature but honestly, I’d just like to ensure Diesel get the message. This blog’s not here for whoring and Diesel aren’t exactly a priority when it comes to my personal taste.

Just in case you’re absolutely befuddled regarding the subject at hand, see Thom’s post over at The Sunday Best.

    It’s very tricky managing to be nice to marketing ppl whilst not wanting to offend them by not posting/featuring the stuff they send you….

    I simply wrote back: Stop. Spamming. Me.I suppose this might mean I’ll never get invited to some lavish Diesel do…of course, I don’t think that was forthcoming.
