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.

ELdO True Lust – Rayon Violet de ses Yeux
This is a Press Bottle from my mate Bronwyn who imports ELdO to Australia. The opening is like a chemical spill but after about 20 seconds this beautiful spicy rose and parma violet fragrance comes pouring out. So pretty. ELdO has a way of making quite old fashioned fragrance tropes seem utterly new. I like it. The dry down has darker and more feral, woods and animal musk. (Review & Giveaway coming)
Eau My Soul by 4160 Tuesdays
Everyone is going crazy for this over the last year. I can see why. So wearable and pretty. Honeyed tobacco and boozy amber, yum.
Music For A While by Frederic Malle
Thunked my 3ml decant. Pineapple, Lavender and stuff. What a stupid name for a perfume. Smells so good though.
Radox Bath Salts
Don’t worry. I have a back up.
Estee Lauder Youth Dew Deodorant
The perfect underlay for any spicy, amber or woodsy fragrance. Youth Dew gives everything a little lift. I can’t even remember where this came from but I loved it.
Have you tried any of these? How did they work for you?
