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: What Is Your Most Expensive Perfume Purchase?
There are a few ways you can look at this. You can tell us something you may have bought a sample of and give its price per ml. Price of a full bottle. Price it cost you to get it, maybe you flew to France to buy something rare, discontinued or place specific. You can even give us a fragrance that cost you in emotional turmoil, that might be fun as well.
I have two answers for you today.
A few years ago when Jin and I were not very long along in our relationship I discovered how freaking hard it is to buy for him. He just goes and buys anything he needs and wants so there’s very little left for me to buy him. We had been down to Peony Melbourne and tried the Mona do Orio range and he had fallen madly in love with Oud. Their most expensive offering at the time. So it cost me over US$500 to buy it for him. That is by far my most expensive outlay to date. Just so you know, it smells freaking amazing on him.
My personal most expensive buy is Neela Vermeire Creations Mohur Extrait. A richer, deeper, less explosive version of Mohur that lasts for days. If you spray it on your scarf you will smell it for years. Takes me on a magnificent rose and EVERYTHING journey, each ride is slightly different and conjures stories in my head. Worth every cent!
