Hey Hey Perfume Junkies,
The idea is that anything worthy of comment, either good or bad, that’s passed under my nose through the week will get a short write up. Up till now I have kept APJ positive comments only, those days are gone. If I think something is terrible, shamefully lazy, greedy or stupid and you should know about it, it will be said. Not everything works for everyone and it would be pretty boring if it did >>> YMMV. I’d love it if you all agree, respectfully disagree, have any thought-out opinion and want to share, do so in the comments below. The point is starting a conversation.
Anything that I’m not keeping becomes a super simple GIVEAWAY. All comments are entered. Next week I’ll tell you who random.org picked. If the winner doesn’t eMail me during the week it will JACKPOT to next weeks winner who will get both.
Last Weeks Winner: NEVA!
eMail me at (portia underscore turbo at yahoo dot com dot au) with your address please
New Sniffs: 29.11.2108
Alchemy by Aftelier
Mandy Aftel has sent her newest fragrance through. WOO HOO! Imagine a deep, dark, peppery animalic. Awash with amber vanilla and lightly salted ambergris. I’m totally loving the way this smells, it has the multi facets of natural perfumery but so beautifully blended that you’ll not pick it. Scott and I are 100% into Alchemy.
Brigitte sent me a care package with some teas and St Clair Scents.
Frost by St Clair Scents
Considering how simple the note list is that we are given Frost is a delicate but intricate scent. Citruses, petigrain and coriander create something greater than the parts that produced it.
Gardener’s Glove by St Clair Scents
Galbanum, tomato leaf, jasmine and apricot combine to create a water park smell. It’s deliciously white floral and has that odd plastic vibe that comes with some aldehydes. Very wearable and fun. Slightly foodie in a all natural cafe kinda way.
First Cut by St Clair Scents
Cross a cigar with hay, cut some grass and herbs, drizzle it all in honey and you’ll smell First Cut. This is the one APJ readers have been going crazy for. A modern reinterpretation of Fougere Bengale without the heavy curry. I can see why you love it.
Scott and I also grabbed this one out of a box of decants.
Belle de Jour by DIOR Prive
Roses, woods and the prettiest real deal taste of peach. A wash of fragrance so lovely and perfect for balmy spring days. No worry if you’re working, quite a private scent but you’ll still be fragrant. I would love it even more if it was the price of L’Occitane, because it would fit beautifully into that line too.
Have you tried any of these? How did they work for you?
