Hello Fellow Fumies,
At APJ we have a Saturday Question. Everyone gets to chime in with an answer, chat with other responders and it’s a fun event each week. Taking sides never means taking offence and everyone keeps it respectful and light, even though we can sometimes trawl the depths.
The idea is you’ll see it on the weekend or chime in through the week. Hopefully you will come back regularly and see if anyone has responded to your comment and you can reply to them. The aim is to generate real conversation and connection even though we are scattered around the globe.
Over 100 responses I will draw a Secret Scent Sample Pack (from my collection)
Last Weeks Winner: Diana

Saturday Question: What Are Your Perfume Fantasies Before A Purchase?
You are humming and ha-ing over a purchase. Maybe you’re reading a bunch of blogs about the latest, greatest, newest thing, or you’ve spritzed something in store. You’ve been sent or bought a sample or someone you know wears it or maybe you’ve had it on your hit list for ages and now there’s a super bargain. Suddenly your brain goes into overdrive…..
This happens to me ALL THE TIME! My decision to buy a fragrance is rarely dispassionate. You know, I like it, I have the money, I’ll buy it. That is not the way my brain works mostly.
My brain will suddenly jump in to scenario fantasy overdrive.
If I’m sniffing it and I fall in love I start thinking how this will be my next season staple. I’ll ignore the 1300 other bottles in my collection for a season and wear this one frag which will give me the best scent memory stamp for that time in my life.
Reading about the latest and greatest will have me thinking everyone will be so glad to read how much I loved it. I’ll be able to decant something totally cutting edge for the winners of the draws. Next sniffy at my place everyone will get to try this new baby.
If it’s something a friend owns my mind will be making sure I do enough things away from that person to not be wearing the same scent on the same day.
Bargains are so compelling already and then my mind goes, Well you were going to buy this anyway and look how cheap. Is there anything else for a good price on this sale doc, on this discounter site, in this store? Suddenly my cart is full and I’m pressing the PayPal button.
Seriously, it’s a never ending litany of fantastical and barely realistic thoughts.
