Hello Fellow Fumies,
Every Saturday we have a Question, an idea purloined from Olfactoria’s Travels. Everyone gets to chime in with an answer, chat with other responders and it is 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 and see if anyone has responded to your comment and you can reply to them.
Over 100 responses I will draw a Scent Sample Pack (from my collection)
- Vintage CHANEL No 22 EdC
- Divine EdP
- Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme
- Annick Goutal Duel
- Le Galion Cologne Nocturne
Last Weeks Winner: Francesca Berlanger

Saturday Question: How and When Do You Swap And Share Fragrances?
Our perfume habit is expensive. One of the greatest ways to sample a wide range of fragrances for only the cost of some decanting supplies and postage is to swap and share. Where to get Decanting Supplies? People will send you things that you would never pick for yourself and that will expand your knowledge and sometimes give you a new love.
When I first started in the perfume craving I didn’t really know anyone else who loved perfume like I do. It wasn’t until I discovered the world of online fragrant chatter and the scentbloggosphere that my life became about perfumed peeps as well as the juice. I have done a lot of sharing over the years and sometimes swap. There is so much here already that I’ve asked people to stop sending me stuff unless have a conversation about it.
Sending parcels to people around the world filled with scented surprises gives me boundless joy though. When I do it in it’s a completely selfish gift because of my joy. When a recipient writes or phones to say they loved something I sent, or even to say it was exciting getting a package, my heart soars.
Seriously, when am I ever going to use 100ml of most of my perfumes? NEVER! So sharing the love also acts as a balm to my guilt for being such a greedy consumer.
