Hey APJ

Here she comes, you better watch your step, She´s going to break your heart in two, It’s true, It’s hard not to realize, Just look into her false coloured eyes, she’ll  build you up just to put you down, what a clown.  Cause everybody knows (she’s a femme fatale) The things she does to please (she’s a femme fatale) She´s just a little tease …….

Hi APJ,

A SOTD (Scent Of The Day) thread is a really good conversation generator. The idea is you’ll chime in through the week with whatever scent you are wearing. You don’t need to be super knowledgable, have high faluting tastes or be a published author to comment. Just tell us what fragrance you’re wearing, smelling, buying etc. and how it makes you feel and/or anything else about it that tickles your fancy.

You can also comment on everyone else choices too. It’s great to tell someone how much you love their choice, ask for more info about it, the house or perfumer. There’s someone here from around the world 24/7 and perfume people love to chat.

Hello Fellow Fumies,

At APJ we have a Saturday Question. Everyone gets to chime in with an answer, chat with other responders and it’s a fun event each week. Taking sides never means taking offence and everyone keeps it respectful and light, even though we can sometimes trawl the depths.

The idea is you’ll see it on the weekend or chime in through the week. Hopefully you will come back regularly and see if anyone has responded to your comment and you can reply to them. The aim is to generate real conversation and connection even though we are scattered around the globe.

Atelier des Ors: Riviera Series 2019

Hey there APJ Crew,

Megan from our Mood Scent 4 crew is working with Atelier des Ors. She has kindly sent me samples of the new Atelier des Ors Riviera Series to try and get a feel for. They are based on the classic cologne style but given a full rework with the best ingredients and fabulous longevity. Rather than showstoppingly huge they are more moderate projectors, you will be fragrant but not obnoxious. Perfect warm weather or reminders of warm weather. I can imagine them being a perfect winter pick me up. Also, those bottles are swoon worthy all by themselves.

Hermès: Summer of Hermessences!

Hey there APJ! How is everyone doing?

Summer is my absolute favorite season. The long bright sunny days full of warmth hitting every pore of my body make my heart pulsate with pure joy. Barefoot feet, leisurely days by the pool side, lazy mornings sleeping in and days where I can decide on a whim or fancy what to do take years of stress and weight off of my shoulders. This is cherished time with my son who enjoys summer as much as or if not more than I do.
