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.
Over 100 responses I will draw a Scent Sample Pack (from my collection)

Saturday Question: What Fragrance Do You Overspritz?
We all know how annoying an over spritzer in a crowded space can be. Headaches, nausea, inability to think rationally and grumpiness can ensue. Especially rude if they know they’ll be in close confines with others.
So, what fragrance do you feel NEEDS to be overspritzed? Maybe something you wear alone in your home to do the cleaning, on outside days in the garden, to wander the grocery store or any other place.
OK, if we are messing up here I do tend to overspritz quite lavishly for work. Being a Drag Queen requires an abundance of scent cloud and yes sometimes I even marinate in my perfumes for it. The thing is, I’m wafting past people mostly and rarely sit down with them for more than 5 minutes. As I know most of our players if I’m overwhelming someone will kindly chime in and I’ll know I’ve gone overboard. Then I’ll keep my distance.
Most obviously overspritzed in Boucheron Trouble. Somehow that little extra goes a LONG way and it does become a suffocating cloud. BUT that’s the way I love to smell it. Sometimes around the house I’lkl give myself 6 hefty blasts to my chest and wander around in a daze.
DIOR Mitzah is another one. Some days with the same amount of spritzes it just seems enormous. On those days it’s like the notes drop into my brain like bricks and I can smell every piece of the composition separately. Very intense but totally enjoyable.
Not the last by any means but one I do love to spritz for myself and wear at home of out grocery shopping in vintage Joy parfum overlaid with the EdT. I wear a LOT of it and feel like my fragrance is a siren song, luring unwary travellers to their graves. These are my two newest bottles that have only been sprayed to test for vintage realness. They PASS!
