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: Less than 100

Saturday Question: What Is Your Closest Bottle To Empty?
Because there is SO MUCH perfume here emptying a bottle is a HUGE deal for me. there have been a few bottle thunks this year: 30ml Lolita Lempicka EdP, 2 x 13ml Niki de Saint Phalle and a bunch of small fry. There are a few bottles rattling around with a few ml left: a few Miss Dior, Shalimar, Mitsouko 7.5ml vintage extraits, some Hermès 15ml travels, Montale Sandflowers 100ml has about 5ml left.
This 100ml Joy EdT by Jean Patou wins the award at the moment. Through use and gifting has now reached 5ml or less. It came to me nearly full from one of those incredible eBay bargains that I was the only bidder on over a decade ago. It was so cheap I thought it must be a fake and was stressing until it arrived. It smells fresh and perfectly in tact, deep and richly lustrous. Though it’s an EdT it smells as textured and intricate as the extrait but has infinitely more throw and diffusion. I use to drench myself in it but now that it’s so near the end I content myself with furtive swipes, often just for my own enjoyment on home days.
