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.

New Sniffs: 6.9.2018

Hey Hey Australian Perfume Junkies,

I’m going to try a new Thursday thing for September.

Hoping to combat the guilt I feel when so much arrives and so little gets written about the idea of New Sniffs emerged.

The idea is that anything new that’s passed under my nose through the week will get a short write up. It must feel worthy of comment, either good or bad, and will have a YMMV caveat. Up till now I have kept APJ positive comments only, those days are gone. If I think something is terrible, shamefully lazy, greedy or stupid and you should know about it, it will be said. As you know, not everything works for everyone and it would be pretty boring if it did. I’d love it if you all agree, respectfully disagree, have any thought-out opinion and want to share, do so in the comments below. As always the point is starting a conversation with you all.

Anything that I’m not going to keep will become a GIVEAWAY. A super simple one. All comments are instantly entered. Next week I’ll tell you who random.org picked. If the winner doesn’t get in touch with me during the week it will JACKPOT to next week and that winner will get both.

Sale Gosse by Fanny Bal for Frederic Malle 2017

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?

SOTD 3.9 – 9.9.2018

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.

Neela Vermeire Creations: Summer Vacation Memories + GIVEAWAY

Hey there APJ! How have you all been doing?

Summer has gone by in a flash here. The schools only have six weeks of vacation which in my mind is too short. That aside, it was a fantastic summer here in the Netherlands with high temperatures and no rain. You see, I love the heat and sunshine.

Neela Vermeire Creations

So, in order to get my yearly fix of heat and sunshine I flew with my son to Atlanta to visit my parents and see family and friends. I decided to travel with a couple of Neela Vermeire Creations perfumes.
