Hello APJ Crew,
Momentous occasion. Can’t believe we have made this number. From the smallest inkling of an idea to this is quite remarkable for me.
Thank you. Contributors past and present, Readers, Commenters, the Fragrance Businesses, Perfumers, Perfume Lovers one and all. We have done this together. All of us, a fragrance family that I am so grateful for.
Together we have made a place that I love to come to, a bunch of aficionados that love fragrance. Nothing too heavy, only the sheerest veneer of knowledge but boundless energy, excitement and dedication to all things fragrant. It feels like my living room with a bunch of perfumistas having a chatter and a sniff together, sharing our interest across the oceans and through time. Doing it in lunch hour, on the way to work, after the family is asleep or any time. Sometimes you guys are the one thing that keeps me grounded. Thanks.
Some special Thank Yous go to
Nick & Paige at Libertine Parfumerie who always make sure APJ has samples of the newest and best.
Patty and the crew at Surrender To Chance who make it easy for an Aussie to keep up.
Everyone at My Perfume Samples for support & kickbacks.
Adam, Franco & Steven at LuckyScent for their friendship & support.
George & the First In Fragrance crew who swap samples for cookies
Neela Vermeire of Neela Vermeire Creations who is always great value and a constant source of fun. I love you.
Please go shop with these guys because they are part of what keeps APJ running.
In the blogging community we also have an amazing group of friends, supporters and helpers.
