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)
- Clinique Aromatics In White
- Dior Prive Granville
- Oliver & Co Resina
- Nasomatto China White
- Vintage YSL Y
Last Weeks Winner: Cassieflower

Saturday Question: What is your “Unwearable Masterpiece”?
I saw this question somewhere recently and loved it.
You know! The one you bought because it smelled so weird and cool and pushed every boundary. While you were testing it you thought to yourself, “Bloody hell! Wait till my perfumista buddies get their noses on this shit! They are going to go spare!” You’ve brought your precious, expensive, magical elixir home with you and given it a whirl. “EEEEEW! Did someone fart?”, “What is that bloody smell?”, “Oh Gawd, the dog’s dropped one!”, “That’s given me a headache” or the famous one from Jin, “Cow POOH!”
OK, I have a few for different reasons.
Let’s talk about masterpieces, I think we all agree that the Slumberous brand has had more than a few. Something in the base of the Slumberous early fragrances gives Jin nightmares. It was uncanny. I’d be up late, blogging away, give myself a goodnight spritz of any of the Slumberhouses in my collection. 2 hours later Jin would be up and awake with night terrors. So, the Slumberholses got moved to happier homes.
Another masterpiece that gave us a fright was La Via del Profumo’s Oud Caravan #3. I was happily wafting my sample of it one afternoon early on in our relationship and as Jin arrived home he said in his (at that time) heavily accented English, “COW POOH!!” O M G! Laughed. Sadly it has forever put that thought into my head about it.
Lastly, I know not to spritz anything with a warm amber base less than 15 minutes before we leave the house because it tickles Jin’s nose and I get moaning complaints.
