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: How Do You Perfume Budget?
Something I always tell the newbies to the perfumed rabbit hole is to set a budget. This addiction is expensive and ultimately frivolous. Here Warren Buffett puts many of my Dads lectures into a very simple sentence.
“If you buy things you do not need, soon you will have to sell things you need.” — Warren Buffett
It’s very easy to get carried away with our hobby and especially so with the way the market has become in aspirational pricing.
Short Answer: No
How I wish I was better at money. I’m terrible at it. Not super terrible but sometimes I reflect on dollars squandered on living a full, fun and fabulous life and my stomach drops. While I’m not rich in any sense of the first world hierarchy, compared to billions of the earths other citizens I am extremely comfortable, and grateful for it.
So today I’m looking for inspiration.
Do you budget your perfume consumption? How do you do it? Is there a spend limit weekly or annually? How do you check yourself? Do you write it down? Is it only you who keeps track?
