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.

Saturday Question: What Is Your Guilty Pleasure?
Guilty Pleasures! I have a few fragrant guilty pleasures. Now we can be talking ANYTHING fragrance related here. Maybe you collect your empty bottles or the lids? It could be a penchant for drug store cheapies. Do you need to have the whole set of something? Maybe your secretly a niche snob or have a secret way you apply? Is there a stash of soaps and body washes at your house? Anything can be your guilty pleasure and I think it’s time you shared…….
HA! This could take a while…….
- I am a rampant sample and decant buyer. Can’t help myself. Spend a LOT of money on them, and always 3, 5 or 10ml so it comes in a sprayer. From decanting stores, sample swaps, splits and anywhere you can get them. I’m in. There are literally HUNDREDS of them in this apartment. I try to move as many as I can on in one way or another but it is ridiculous.
- Backups! If I love something and it’s Dcd then you can be sure there is at least one backup of it around here. My Shalimar, Mitsouko, Miss Dior, Liberté, Blonde, Oriental Brulant, Madonna Truth or Dare and Niki de Saint Phalle collections might make you weep.
- I LOVE to troll the internet late at night while in my tracksuit. Reading blogs and FB boards, cross referencing info, looking up availability, checking prices and generally losing hours of my life in the search and hunt. It’s thrilling and fun.
