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)
Saturday Question: Have you ever loathed a fragrance so much that you threw it in the trash?
This question came up a few months ago on one of the FaceBook pages and it made me laugh so much. Some of the stories were humdingers. Please don’t take offence if one of your favourites is mentioned, this is all a bit of silliness. Let’s try to stay fun and respectful.
Ever bought a scent at the discounters on the net, from a sales doc, been given it or from eBay and it has been so utterly loathsome that rather than pass it on to anyone else you’d prefer it went to landfill?
I bought a bottle of either Elie Saab Resort Collection or L’Eau Couture from a sales doc. I can’t remember what it was and it only got spritzed twice. There was something definitely wrong with it. I think it may have been a fake because it was putrid. I could smell pretty white flowers at first but it was later overlaid with this awful, headache inducing plastic smell and something else I cannot name and have never smelled before or after. Ghastly is the best adjective I have.
It went in the bin so fast and without remorse. So awful I wouldn’t even have given it to goodwill. GAK! Even the memory of it makes me twitch.
