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 Was Your Last Full Bottle Purchase?
OK, I am a fairly consistent buyer of fragrance. Because I’ve been leading up to our honeymoon though there has been a bit of a hold on shopping. There have been a few things off Sales Docs on the FaceBook pages and a couple of super bargains but only one big ticket item this year. I even made it a split to defray some of the costs and assuage my guilt.
My last FB purchase was CHANEL 1957 200ml. When I first tried it on my body I was massively underwhelmed. You know, I really like to be bowled over by lavish and fabulous fireworks at the start. 1957 isn’t like that. You need to give it time to develop, also repeated wearings bring out more and more nuance. After a few wears I wanted MORE! So I could lavishly spritz to my hearts content.
There’s something so satisfying about the feeling of the 200ml bottle in my hand, even though I sold off about 1/3 it still looks like I have enough and I love to give myself those extra couple of bursts. Very happy shopping outcome.
