Femme (Vintage) by Edmond Roudnitska for Rochas 1943 LIVE Video Sniff

Hey Fumies,

I wonder if Edmond Roudniska is rolling in his grave? My mate David (Margeaux) and I take on one of the world’s most enduring fragrances in a LIVE Video Sniff! We are only enthusiasts and the thrill of being in front of a camera coupled with a few beverages, a group of the APJ crew together and our own madness means that we completely forget much of what we wanted to say, some of what we really should have said, and then mangle what we do say and add in bullshit to boot. Your mission, should you choose to take it, is to unravel the truth and tell us because we are up shit creek without a boat, let alone a paddle; and yes, I do know that Edmond Roudnitska was the creator, Edward Roudnitska is a figment of my crazed, and deranged by sniffing too much perfume, brain.

What I can tell you is that we had a really fabulous time making this. Surely that counts for something. If you’d like to see a review of the currently available for next to nothing reformulation that is still wickedly wonderful then Femme by Edmond Roudnitska for Rochas 1943

As always I have to thank my BFF for her video and editing skills which she gives up her precious spare time to do, THANKS KATH!! Also a shout out to Jin who makes it blog ready and lastly I need to thank Margeaux for being an excellent fellow with such a great personality and a great mate, not to mention that he is a complete SPUNK!!

Do please enjoy our frolic through Vintage Femme by Rochas.
Till we see you tomorrow we wish you only good stuff.
Loads of love,
Portia xx

This whole piece is a reblog from 2012. I love it so much that I thought we could all watch it again.

  1. Hello Portia!
    Yesterday I was attempting to organize my samples (I did have other things to do but…) and found the decant of vintage Femme by Rochas from that same sale at the Perfumed Court! This time, after watching the video sniff, I knew right where to look for what I needed. So… this moment in real time: “POW! Right in the Kisser!” Memories of my very own bottle of pre- reform Femme. Now it is time to go out and take over the world – or at least conquer the slugs that are trying to take over the greenhouse 😉 I wonder if they will follow me as I now smell like “every flower that was ever picked”! Thank you for the fun!

    • Those pesky slugs won’t know what hit them.
      I’m so glad we inspired you to scent yourself today Azar. You smell beautiful.

    • Heya meganinstmaxime,
      we had a really great thing worked out on a Wednesday night after trivia, everyone would come and then we’d do the vids when the pub shut. Sadly that pub is now closed so it all got a bit too hard.
      The vintage is quite different, more peach & civet.

    • OMG! You got lost in a LIVE Sniff Video loop. How funny. Did we get more or less amusing as they went on?
