Post by Val the Cookie Queen
Greetings APJ Readers.
Each time I attend some perfume related gathering I intend to take lots of pictures.
Cookie Queen & Portia on Tour
Fact is I suck at it. I am overwhelmed by everything that is going on and never quite get it together as I planned. Still, the following pix will give you an idea of what went on. Tara has covered the event brilliantly on both A Bottled Rose and Australian Perfume Junkies.
Dr Fox, partner-in-crime, therapist, and she’s driving me to Milan.

Around the time that you are reading this I am either packing my bag or on the road to the Esxence in Milan. I have a theory. Three days in Milan, six decent pictures each day, eighteen pictures. That ought to do it. Plus some pictorial updates on social media. My hands are shaking already.
