Hello lovely APJ Friends and Family.

You may know it’s my birthday today. It couldn’t go by without some cake. But today’s cake is a little different, YOU get to make a wish and blow on the picture.


Close your eyes

Wish for something simple and achievable in your life

Hold the thought for 3 seconds

Now say THANK YOU for 4 things that you are grateful for. Doesn’t matter how small or big.

Here’s the cake……

So I don’t know if your wish will come true but you know you have 4 things to be grateful for. You’re doing better than almost everyone else in the world.

What will I be wafting on this special day? The Blossom Thief by AROMANTIK and I will be smelling F I N E

See you later,
Portia xx

  1. Happy Birthday, dear Portia! So, you’re finally 21 (judging by the number of candles on your cake 😉 ) – please drink responsibly ;-P And all the best to you on this day – and for the year ahead, until the next birthday wishes.

    It wasn’t an easy task – to think of just four things I’m grateful for since I think I’m blessed with so many great things. But thank you for gifting me with the moment to think about it.

    ❤ ❤ ❤


  2. How wonderful, happy birthday!
    To make a variation on Undina’s joke – you look like 29! There is a saying the 10 happiest years in a lady’s life are those between her 29th and 30st birthday…
    Anyway, all the best, real cake with good friends and family – may your wishes come true.
    (For your special day, I’ll search my sample of Mohur extrait and wear it in your honour).


  3. ahhhhh. another libra. well, that explains almost everything *laugh*

    mazel tov & l’shana tova!

    “May the best of your last year be the worst of your next.”



    • That is an excellent premise. A fortunate year ahead indeed and yes, the Libra thing is so obvious when people find out.
      Thank you Einsof,
      Portia xx


    • Welcome into the glade Holly, you’re still safe, have plenty of trees to run to if you’re scared but here we dance in the sunlight.
      Thank you so much. I feel very blessed.

  4. It’s still the 25th here, so happy birthday lovely Portia! May your next year be as wonderful as you smell! (awkwardly expressed, but you get the idea).


    • Hi Empliau,
      My birthday will run on into Monday this year, I am being spoiled mercilessly, and getting well wishes from all over the globe. You can only imagine how lovely that is for me.
      Thank you.

    • OMG!! Hajusuuri! I would LOVE to meet you.
      November destinations include Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago, New York City.
      There will be perfumista get togethers at every stop.
      I will keep you posted.
      Portia xx


  5. Happy birthday! I hope your wish comes true, and I hope you have a wonderful birthday year filled with many more things to be grateful for. I, for one, am quite grateful for APJ and the wonderfully friendly and generous perfume community 🙂


  6. Geeeeeee, Portia, dear, happy belated birthday from the far-off Bulgaria! I am sure it was bright and memorable day!
    I really wish you the best things in life – health, love, fun!
    And myriad of blissful fragrant surprises! Libras know how to appreciate the world’s beauty! Love Yaaa!
