Gucci Mémoire d’Une Odeur by Alberto Morillas 2019

Well hello there everyone!

It is an extremely rare thing for me to go to a store and ask for a sample of a fragrance, and even rarer that I write about something that I do not own.  And yet here I am.   It was the chamomile note that intrigued me.  I am no chamomile in perfume expert, but several years ago Vero gave me an old Hermés parfum with chamomile in it, and it gives a most exquisite scent.  This knowledge allowed me to recognize the chamomile clearly in the Gucci.

Hi APJ,

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. and how it makes you feel and/or anything else about it that tickles your fancy.

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.

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.

Hey there APJ Crew,

The kids are still with us. It’s kind of nice having them around the house. They basically take care of themselves at 16 & 20. Jin is loving being an Uncle and I quite like hearing their chatter, even though quite a lot of it is in Korean and Slovakian. If we had kids we would need more room though, not that we want kids, that’s definitely 100% off the table.
