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)
- CHANEL Coco Extrait
- Pour Un Homme De Caron
- Guerlain Shalimar Extrait (20th century)
- Hermès Equipage Geranium
- Ungaro Diva (20th Century)

Saturday Question: What favourite scent do you want in a bottle?
This week we are talking those things you smell and love but don’t seem to be in a bottle yet. You know, the kind of thing Demeter is famous for. Not really perfumes but smells. Like Grass, Candy Floss, Gin & Tonic or Christmas in New York. What smell do you love that you haven’t yet found in a bottle.
The list is endless obviously but a couple that I think would make excellent perfumes are
My pups have the best smelling feet. It’s freaky but true. There’s something so warm, friendly, animalic and sweet about them. Sometimes when my greyhound Paris and I are cuddling he’ll put a paw up to my face like he’s going to pat me. The smell is so good I just want to sniff it till the end of time.
Delhi International Airport (before the renovation)
Getting off the plane at Delhi International was a sensory experience like no other in the world. It wasn’t a bad, or a big smell but it was unique. Hot air, aircraft fuel, car fuel, dust, dirt, humanity (clean and unwashed) and something el;se I could never put my finger on that was completely Delhi. Now it’s as sterile and lifeless as almost every other major world airport. Sad.
Jin Wearing Bottega Veneta EdP
Nobody smells as good in Bottega Veneta EdP. Jin brings a healthy skin, spiciness and voluptuousness to it that I’ve never smelled on anyone else who wears it. Entrancing. He lifts the fragrance to something holy, id follow that smell almost anywhere.
