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.
Saturday Question: What If You Could Only Own 3 Perfume Houses?
It’s a dystopian future. The fragrant police are jailing, maiming and killing people who have excessive perfume collections. It’s like Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury but instead of books being outlawed it’s personal scent. You are only allowed three houses in your collection. What do you choose?
Dawn has a brilliant range. It’s depth and breadth are astounding and I think that I’d be able to have some excellent choice if it was one of my three houses. I also really love the way her perfumes smell on me. Almost every one I’ve tried has been a success. From the incense/ambers to the sharp green florals, icy to cozy and all the way out to oudh.
Obviously for me. i would be lying if I left them out
Pierre Guillaume is a totally under rated perfumer. His work is good across the board. Not afraid to do both ends of the spectrum. He hits the mark with mainstream styles and freaky fragrance. Dry as a bone to sweet and luscious. His range of creation leaves me breathless. I also like how he comes back and reinterprets his own work with the balances changed or new highlights. Clever.
