YOU GOTTA HAVE A SCENTS OF HUMOUR!!
It is exactly a year now since I met Portia.
This perfume world is absolutely crazy, fun, rewarding, uplifting and at times absolutely hilarious.
I have two favourite perfume games. They can be played as solitaire or with multiple players.
Game 1. Are they? / Aren’t they?
As I am out and about in the city, with or without my daughter (non perfume junkie friends don´t play this game)
we like to pick approaching people at random and guess if they are going to walk by in a huge cloud of fragrance,
leaving a trail behind them, a light spritz, nothing, or a bad case of BO. After playing this game for several years it is extremely satisfying to
see just how often I get it right.

Game 2. Maybe I know More Than You
(usually played silently and pleasurably in your head, depending how annoying the sales assistant is)
Ever been into a perfumery, department store or wherever and had the sales assistant talk a lot of nonsense?
Freddie from Smelly Thoughts recently told me that the SA in Harrod´s explained Vero Kern´s Onda as a lavender. Need I say more?
So one year on and I am about to meet up with Portia again. We will be in London together.
Harrod´s, be warned.
So APJ lovers and friends, feel free to share any perfume games you play!
