No responsibility taken for lost or damaged goods in transit.

Special THANKS to LibertinePerfumerie for the So Nude Bottles. Please visit their site because they are so generous and helpful. If you wonder why they are more expensive than the discounters or OS retailers it’s because they are the only licensed company selling their fragrances in Australia; where you know you are buying new, fresh and genuine product. The cost of importing, and buying the right to import, alcohol based fragrances (and having the right to send alcohol based fragrances throughout Australia, which are illegal to send in the Australia Post air system) is expensive and they must cover their costs to bring you these luxury goods.

    Hello Portia! BIG CONGRATULATIONS!!! The APJ’s are so much fun and you are the best.
    On Libertine Perfumerie I found Miller et Bertaux “Bois de Gaiac Poire 4”. I’ve never tried it but Maya did a post recently on “Gaiac” by Jean-Claude Astier. Her post piqued my interest in gaiac wood. (Oh, I follow by e-mail.)

    I follow you by email 🙂

    Thanks heaps for this giveaway!!

  21. Lyubov says:

    Cheers to many more, Portia! It’s great fun here with you!
    You know what I did – I checked what the Fragrance Finder on the Libertine would suggest for me.
    Three options popped out and I give you the first – L’Eau Neuve by Lubin! The others were Les Nuits d’Izu by Keiko Mecheri and Limes by Floris, and I gave Still Life by Olfactive Studio for a fragrance I am wearing at the moment – the most comfortable discovery for me this year!!!
    Thank you for the marvellous giveway! I am following by email.

  22. poodle says:

    Congrats on the new milestone! That is pretty impressive. I’m a WordPress follower, but you knew that. For a fragrance I’ll say Tokyo Milk Gin & Rosewater.

    • australianperfumejunkies says:

      I think I have a sample of this Poodle. somewhere in my sample cave. Never sniffed it yet though maybe I should.

    • australianperfumejunkies says:

      I have tried very few of the Creeds, only two of them have ever really tantalised me were Fantasia de Fleurs because I love the Empress Elisabeth story so I bought a bottle and Royal Oudh but I’ve not purchased yet.

    Hello Portia!

    200.000 views! Congratulations! We have waited for this, as I could see on FB.

    Beside WordPress, FB and twitter, I also activated following via email. Each way has its charm. As you know, I like to retweet, then it also goes to my FB timeline.

    There are many of interesting and respectable names at Libertine .
    I will go with Amouage Jubilation XXV that I love very much.

    • australianperfumejunkies says:

      Heya dgambas,
      You are a great reposter. I thank you in my head and heart every time.
      I have a big fat decant of Jubilation XXV sitting in front of me on my desk but I’m scared to try it in case it’s love.

      Thank you for being supportive, friendly and generally wonderful through it all. You were in my first 5 followers.

  31. CC ... says:

    Congratulations! If I recall, it wasn’t that long ago when you reached 150k! A million hits by this time next year, I am certain. So happy for you as it is such a happy little piece of the internet. Thank you! I think I would love Hierbas de Ibiza Agua de Colonia right now as it is hot as hell here. xox

    • australianperfumejunkies says:

      Thank you CC. One million seems incredible but then so does 200,000. It’s so great that you’re here to celebrate with us.
      The heat will abate very soon but anything with Ibiza in it is cool by me.
