I greet you APJ for the last time on this platform!
What follows is a bunch of photos taken during my time as Australian Perfume Junkies raving reporter. They are in no particular order, and most of them you will have seen already. APJ has been an incredibly huge part of my life. I mean freaking enormous.
In Harrod’s with Portia.
Innsbruck with Vero.
Esxence 2019 with Megan. (Megan In Sainte Maxime) (Atelier des Ors)
Tara (A Bottled Rose) and I sniffing Sale Goss in London.
With the fabulous JTD JTD in Los Angeles.
Carnaby Street with A B.londeswunder and Tara.
Hannah/B.londeswunder in Bloom.
With Freddie Albrighton, perfumista and tattoo artist. Salzburg.
Hannah had arrived around 23:00 in Vienna, having travelled from Salzburg, to see Portia. She asked for donuts and Portia ran out for a box. Why just one when ten would do?
Visiting the amazing Aus Liebe Zum Duft. Flat hair because German water made it too soft.
Antonio and Vero. Milan.
Thomas – The Perfume Candy Boy
Vero and me in Florence. Sorting out samples for me to take to the States.
The gorgeous Michael watching me sniff some Le Labo stuff. Brick Lane, London.
Anima Vinci. Les Senteurs.
Thomas and Tara. How I love them both.
Milan train station. Portia, Vero, and Antonio.
Coffee and chilling with @scentosaurs in Edinburgh.
Last but not least Vanessa (Bonkers About Perfume) and me in Augsburg, Germany. Meeting up for perfume, and a gig. But that is a Strange Tale on its own.
I have loads more photos but setting them into WordPress is about to give me a complete and utter meltdown. So I am gonna stop.
Bussis to the moon and back.
