Greetings APJ Brats

Although the Sale Gosse was launched in 2017, it is only now that it has become semi-available.  Initially it could only be bought in Paris, and only earlier this year did it become available in some stores, London, Italy, and maybe somewhere in the US?  However you can now purchase it online from Frederic Malle.  I was informed by Malle in the Burlington Arcade, London that it would not be going into every Malle point-of-sale.  Which basically means you would have to buy it blind, and we never do that huh?

Hey, hey, hey APJ!!

What’s up?!It has been such a long time and I have missed you all and all of the chats here. Needless to say, I am thrilled to see APJ up and running again.

Haha, so much for my goals. Life has been hectic but wonderful and full of surprises. I am going to tell you today about my love affair with Scotland. Continue reading

Hey there APJ Crew,

We are back in business. Yes, things look a bit different around here and there will be some change. Please understand that this has been a big deal and now we are coming g back from the dead. We have lost all our followers & subscribers and will have to work really hard to  get as many people back, and hopefully add a bunch of newbies too.

Scent Diary is a birdseye view of my week. Often there is a whole lot of living mixed in with the perfumes. Friends & family, food, travel, momentous events, everyday living. I love to read about your adventures too in the comments and often we get lively discussion down there. I try to reply to every comment and add my 2c, feel free to add yours when and wherever. We only ask that you keep it respectful.

Hey there APJ Crew,

It’s Mardi Gras Parade week here in Sydney. Though I’ve kept a pretty low profile Sydney has been bursting at the seams with International Visitors here to enjoy the last week of our Mardi Gras Season. The weather has been perfect for everything and I’m hearing reports of a super year. Saturday nights parade was my Big Event this year, hosting the Sideshow Glam Stands. An excellent week, now I’m bushed!
