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 Warm Weather Vanilla Fragrance?
Vanilla! It’s one of my favourite notes in perfumery. It goes with almost everything and smells great on most of us. From amber like L’Artisan L’Eau d’Ambre to bakery like Guerlain Oriental Brulant, thick and ropey like Jessica Simpson Fancy Nights to the salty aquatic fun of Vanille Marine by Micallef (also excellent in summer).
Here’s my problem. Though I love vanilla as a note in fragrance, most of my ambers get too warm and cozy in summer.
I know they can all be worn in summer but what I really want to know are the ones YOU wear in the warmer months that are vanilla-centric? What have you, in the Northern Hemisphere especially, been wearing in the summer of 2019?
Whenever I really want a hit of hot weather vanilla the sheer and weightless oddity that is Hermès Vanille Galante is my favourite pick. I’m happily on my second 15ml Travel of it, and nearly through it. Though I can’t imagine going through 100ml it is a staple in my summer travel arsenal. Hefty enough to keep me interested, light enough to not sweat and suffocate. Really, it’s mainly lily but the vanilla is there.
