Hey APJ Gym Bunnies, or not!
I have just walked in the door from my workout. Currently I am preparing to go and meet Vanessa from Bonkers About Perfume in Germany tomorrow. I am two days late writing this, failing to meet my own deadline. FFS. Face palm.
I have a question for those of you that go to the gym. I am sure it is not the first time it will have been discussed, but let’s do it anyway. Over the years I have not put a scent on to workout. Seriously, who want to be next to someone in a cloud of Portrait of a Lady huh? I reckon it is kinda rude. But I usually take a perfume with me for afterwards, and include taking a picture of it for my Instagram. Yeah yeah, whatever, it’s fun. 🙂 After workout #scentoftheday !
Still as a fairly hardcore perfumista, I do feel that something is missing when I go out of the house not wearing anything. Which brings me nicely to:
Released in 2016 L’Animal Sauvage is the first scent for the Amsterdam based Marlou fashion label, founded in 2016 by Marlou Breuls. And I absolutely love it. I mentioned in a post towards the end of last year that I did not have a musk in my collection. Never took the time to search one out, and those that I tried along the way did not bite me in the arse.
L’Animal Sauvage by Marlou 2016
Marlou give these featured accords:
Orange blossom. Violet.
Seriously this stuff is freaking gorgeous and I cannot get enough of it. It melts into the skin and seems be an extension of my own smell. Which is maybe what a musk should be anyway? All in all making it absolutely perfect before a work out. So after many years of the gym I finally have found my SOTG. I am complete.
I cannot describe how it smells. Read the damn notes, they truthfully say it all. If you are into musks, and even if you are not, this is an elegantly sexy one, and you must give it a go.
You can order 1.5 ml samples, or 30 mls or 50 mls. Prices are brilliant. The 50 ml is only 95 euros. When I think of all the utter rubbish that is out there at ridiculous prices …..
I bought the 30 ml bottle, as I liked the plainness of the rectangular bottle. The spray on it is fantastic, as good as, or better than any Chanel or Dior. It was an absolute bonus. But I reckon I will need to grab the 50ml bottle next, as I am more than half way through it. This really is Fucking Fabulous stuff. Oh wait, has that name been used? LMAO.
Do any of you APJers have an opinion of perfumes in the gym? Yes? No? Over your dead and mangled bodies? Drop me a comment, I need to know.
“Marlou’s L’Animal Sauvage is sexiness pure, wrapped in sweet florals that lie to you.”
