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.

I found a bunch of 4160 Tuesdays samples hiding away in my collection. Here are a couple that I enjoyed
Be Careful What You Wish For by 4160 Tuesdays
A fancy fruit cocktail quickly segues into a vanilla patchouli with oud backing dancers. If by Kilian were doing Indie this is what it would smell like. I’m enjoying it much more than most of the by Kilian recent releases. This has panache.
Raw Silk & Red Roses by 4160 Tuesdays
A zingy rose fruitchouli. The first few moments attacked like a ferocious celebuscent. Once that initial scorching opening died down I warmed to the super sweet fruit compote over red roses and a funky/plastic/earthy patchouli.
Dzhari by Phaedon
Sweet, boozy, woodsy and a hint of those yummy pitted dates you can buy prepackaged. Dzhari is smooth and very lavish, softly plush like velour. Not really food, it smells much more resinous than that. Through the heart the dates take soft but insistent control. Beautiful.
Jardin Clos by Diptyque
I have a 2 x 2ml sample box of this beautiful lilac/hyacinth and oak moss 2003 beauty. No idea where the little box came from. One is now thunked. So pretty without being delicate or winsome.
Rose Absolue Shower Gel by Molton Brown
This was one of the travel sized bottles I got in my Xmas gift from TinaG. If I see it in store I will definitely grab another. Dark, glamorous roses.
Vintage 2016 by Molton Brown
A FULL BOTTLE! What’s more, it’s my second bottle. When Ainslie Walker gave me the first for Xmas 2016 I fell madly in love and went straight out and bought a backup thinking it would last me a lifetime. NOPE! Two and a bit years later and they’re both gone.
Have you tried any of these? How did they work for you?
