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)
Last Weeks Winner: Brigitte

Saturday Question: What Are Your Favourite Bath/Shower Products?
As you all know I am a 100% bath lover when convenient. Which is almost always while around the apartment. When I go on holidays though it’s usually showers. Either way I love to use my shower gels for bubble baths and for soaping up in the shower. I use a range of them, from expensive luxury through to super cheap. As long as they bubble up, smell good and clean me I’m no snob.
Blenheim Bouquet Bath Oil by Penhaligon’s
This has been one of my long time best buys ever. Blenheim Bouquet is a lovely masculine leaning floral that smells wonderful and leaves my skin feeling soft and supple. It’s also a really good way to keep my skin moist for extra fragrant longevity.
Fate Woman by Amouage
Imagine a slim line version of Fate Woman. Take out all the challenging bits and leave a spicy citrus, narcissus and resinous scent and you have the shower gel. The scent isn’t nearly as tenacious in the shower gel form either, adding a just refreshed in spring feel to your skin. It doesn’t bubble as well in the bath as it does on your loofa, but still makes a very nice showing.
Olympic Orchids Amber Labdanum Bath Oil
Another bath oil, this one is a massive beast and smells amazing. All the crunchy goodness of top notch amber with extra labdanum to give that animalic goatish added extra. Just a few drops in my bath before I plunge and the world smells better than you could imagine, while relaxing in the bath my mind is them free to wander and is often transported on the most amazing journeys.
Rose Jam by LUSH
Especially exciting because Rose Jam is now a regular feature ofd the LUSH stores. My photo is of one of my old bottles while it was still an LE. ALL The roses, great bubbling, makes the house smell unbelievable and only leaves the merest trace on skin to lift your rose centric fragrances.
Tabu by Dana
There was a time when this was going for peanuts at the discounters. I might have bought a dozen, SHHH! A simplified, cozy, purring version of Tabu with loads of soft, furry animalics. Smells well over its budget price range. I always feel like a movie star from the golden years of Hollywood when I have a Tabu bubble bath.
