Hey Hey Perfume Junkies,
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.
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.
Thunk is the sound of an empty hitting the bin but there is some leeway here, selling or gifting away can also count.
We also want to know what you have tried or thunked each week too, please share in the comments below. You don’t need to be a hardcore perfumista to join in, just give your impressions. Others will join in with their impressions too, everyone has a slightly or hugely different experience with scent. That’s part of the fun.

I popped my head into City Perfume on Saturday and tried some new stuff. I didn’t keep all m,y card, which is annoying, so can’t give you real run downs on anything except the ones I put on skin.
Mon Guerlain Bloom of Rose
WOW! WOW! WOW! A light lavender, citrus and rose fragrance that wears so beautifully on me. I’m so close to buying a FB. Very unisex and smells amazing. I sold two of them while in store just because it smelled so freaking good on me. Soft focus nutty vanilla dry down.
OScent Pink by AlexandreJ
Nice. Berry fruity with vanilla and a hint of woods. Not really my style but I can see it being a big seller.
Petroleum by Histoires de Parfums
O M G! I haven’t work Petroleum for a while and being surrounded by the usual floral fruity fragrances spritzed so often in a store it was utter culture shock. Like dousing yourself in petrol. SO WEIRD but fabulous. Interestingly, once that screechy petrol burns off a lovely cozy amber with patchouli and leather comes shining through.
Wasabi Shiso by DSH Perfumes
This is weird and lovely. Spicy and green and utterly unlike any other fragrance I ever smelled in my life. It is so reminiscent of soups from Asia and even has the smell of sizzle. You must try Wasabi Shiso, it’s uncanny. Still manages to also be a beautiful fragrance as well as a smell.
Finished the bar of soap in the bathroom. I think it might have been an Annick Goutal Louvre Hotel, Paris one from back in 2013/4. I really am not 100% sure what it was but I have a vague memory of opening that packet…….
Have you tried any of these? How did they work for you?
