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 20th Century Perfume Should You Have Stockpiled?
This is a question I have had to deal with on more than one occasion. Obviously, as a child and young adult of the 20th Century a whole bunch of my perfume memories and associations are grounded in that time. Being a sentimentalist and loving a bit of nostalgia I like to have, and wear, those fragrances that give me instant flashbacks. Sadly, due to reformulation, management changes, cost cutting and a slew of other reasons many of the scents I loved are shadows of themselves, if not changed beyond recognition.
Tendre Poison by DIOR
I really wish I’d bought 100 bottles of this beauty. Not for me, though I quite like it. For my girlfriends who constantly lament its loss. There’s something about this green sparkling beauty that really captured the hearts of so many of my mates. I think it might have been around just as a bunch of my friends finally had discretionary spending money. Tendre Poison was an early buy that serves as a reminder of those early, fun filled, fabulous years before real commitments started taking precedence and life was to be lived. So many times I’ve heard the lament.
Every time I see one online for a decent price I grab it and gift it. The joy when mates have their hearts desire is wonderful. That first spritz and all the happy stories come flowing out. Perfume is magic.
