Hey Hey Perfume Junkies,
OK I’m adding a THUNKED section here too. It’s becoming an APJ obsession and I love the idea of us using our fragrances and hoiking the vial, decant or bottle. Thunk is the sound of an empty hitting the bin so you must empty it for the thunk to count.
Anything worthy of comment, either good or bad, that’s passed under my nose through the week will get a short write up. If I think something is terrible, shamefully lazy, greedy or stupid and you should know about it, it will be said. As always YMMV.
I’d love it if you get involved: agree, respectfully disagree, have any thought-out opinion and want to share, do so in the comments below. The point is starting a conversation.
New Sniffs + Thunked: 10.1.2018
Arielle Shoshana EdP
This is not strictly a New Sniff but I did get the bottle out after a hiatus and get it on my skin again. It is a freaking masterpiece. So weird and ultra high octane in the opening but the heart is absolutely heavenly. Passionfruit, citrus, vanilla, box and sandalwood. A seriously considered fragrance that is also TOTALLY FUN! Smiling the whole way through my wear.
Sa Majeste la Rose by Serge Lutens
A honeyed rose with bark and leaves. Very nice in this heat. I’ve had this sample for a few years and it smells even better than my memory of the first time I tried it. Maybe it needed more juice on my skin.
Jonquille de Nuit by Tom Ford
Thunked the last 1ml+ of a decant. Medicinal, strawberry, green and daffodil-esque but which smells like the entrance to a swanky hotel on me.
Myrrh by Abdes Salaam Attars
Sweetly resinous, boozy and smoky with an animalic honeyed backbone. I thunked nearly the whole 2ml in one go. SO FRAGRANT.
Knize Sec by Knize
Thunked my LuckyScent Sample that must have been sitting around here for 5+ years. It’s a woodsy incense over lavender, some floral bouquet, light leather and a softly honeyed amber. Not the same powerhouse as Knize Ten but much more daily wearable.
Have you tried any of these? How did they work for you?
