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.

Gold Flowers by Montale
Tuberose done up as narcissus with resinous amber, oudh and the dry rasp of pepper over a creamy, Samsara-like sandalwood. SO pretty and I don’t know why I’ve not heard of it before. Like a drug store scent ramped up to niche.
Nice. Polite. Pretty. Citrus, aldehydes, jasmine, woods, white musk. I might have bought a bottle and split it with the Aussies. Easy spritz and go fragrance that probably would have better suited the Eaux range.

100ml THUNKED! In the bin. Done and dusted. I’m not repurchasing till my Bulgari Eau Thé Noire is empty.
Prada Amber Bath Gel
Gone in a bubbly Bath. So good. I’ll miss this beauty.
Musc Nomade by Annick Goutal Shower Gel
I’m really going to miss this beauty. It’s musk was sweet and cozy, smelled seriously gorgeous through the whole house.
So not really a THUNK as such but I did empty these decants while doing my send outs to you lovely APJers.
