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.

Eau Cerise VdP by DSH Perfumes
OOOH! Sour cherries and roses float over a green, stemminess and warm resins. Slightly sweet but in a natural fruit and lightly animal way. Another interesting beauty from Dawn.
Oudh Noir by DSH Perfumes
Woo Hoo! All the funky Band-Aids with a hefty dose of dark tar and some horses mane. So new it’s not eve on the DSH website yet. Really exciting to smell this friendly oudh, perfect for newbies.
Vanille Orient by M. Micallef
I really liked this series from the Micallef crew and bought a bottle of Vanille Marine. This vanilla is a lightly animalic straight up vanilla with a soft focus woodsy angle. Originally my thought was that it is a bit too much like some other vanillas in my collection. Wearing the whole vial today though has awaken me to the interesting depths and variance through its fragrant life. MMMMMMMMM. Now I am craving a bottle of this too. Damnit!
Ormonde by Floris
I had a big decant of this and wore it infrequently over the years. It is a rose and nutty fougere, very pretty and a little bit old fashioned. It seems to be lost without a definite direction and I wonder if that’s why it was DCd. So happy to have thunked the decant.
Have you tried any of these? How did they work for you?
