Hi there APJ lovers,
We are back from the dead. Welcome to the New APJ!
Welcome Back APJ
We are finally back in business. Thank you to the people who have worked and helped and recreated this wonderful meeting place for fumies, fragrance lovers and perfumistas from around the world. Belinda, Alex and Undina (from Undina’s Looking Glass) all gave time, insight, knowledge and muscle to get us back. Thank you.
It will take some time to get back into our groove and we hope you will bear with us as we implement some change.
Please tell everyone you know that APJ is up again because we lost all our Followers and Subscribers in the hack & changeover. We are really starting again from scratch.
So yes, we will be back to the perfumed chatter ASAP.
We have missed you all.

Hello Fellow Fumies,
Every Saturday we have a Question, an idea purloined from Olfactoria’s Travels. Everyone gets to chime in with an answer, chat with other responders and it is 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 and see if anyone has responded to your comment and you can reply to them.

Happy Spring or Autumn APJ!
Beginning of Spring and I woke up to a shitload of snow and minus temperatures. Headed off to take the 07.30 train to Vienna to meet up with Lady Jane Gray over brunch, calm my Oud Ispahan lemming, and go do a little sniffing on our Hermès to Haring day.
A SOTD (Scent Of The Day) thread is a really good conversation generator. The idea is you’ll chime in through the week with whatever scent you are wearing. You don’t need to be super knowledgable, have high faluting tastes or be a published author to comment. Just tell us what fragrance you’re wearing, smelling, buying etc.
You can also comment on everyone else choices too. It’s great to tell someone how much you love their choice, ask for more info about it, the house or perfumer. There’s someone here from around the world 24/7 and perfume people love to chat.
Have a quiz and see if you won.

Hey there APJ Crew,
This week has been about friends, food and fragrance. I seem to have been spritzing and then eating. Perfect combination of my two favourite things really.
