Every Birthday deserves presents so we have an extraordinary prize today.

When I was in Paris in February, shopping at Guerlain on the first floor of the Galleries Lafayette, I was given a special gift with purchase that is so precious to me that it would NEVER get opened. It is a four pack of beautifully boxed Eau Imperial 40g soaps in a very desirable presentation case. This GWP was not even in the regular gift line but an exclusive gift for the people invited to Guerlain’s Christmas Party in 2012 and the last of its kind that the girl had to give away. THIS IS SPECIAL!!!

If we make 100 individuals commenting I will add in one Kerosen X Pegasus Perfumed Soap made especially for RELIEF Fundraiser made of Coconut, Palm and Castor oils from sexy John at Kerosene Fragrances as a second giveaway!!


Leave a comment below wishing us congratulations. That’s IT!

    I can’t believe it’s been a year since I witnessed the beginnings of this blog! My, how it’s grown! No need to enter me in the drawing since shipping soap from Oz to Us (especially to someone who makes soap:-) is probably not the best use of postage money – just wanted to transmit big hugs, congratulations, and best wishes for an even more spectacular year ahead.

    • You were the FIRST ever perfumer to give APJ their blessing Ellen Covey.There is always a place at the table for you. Your warmth and welcome made a fun idea concrete.
      Thank You. And if your name comes out of the draw I’m sending your prize.
      Portia xx

    Hi Ladies,
    The only emails I ever look for at the end of a tiring day are yours.
    I have been a perfume junkie since I was a little girl and my Nanna gave me a bottle of Norman Hartnel “In Love”.
    I WAS in love and have been ever since. If I close my eyes I can still conjure up that beautiful scent now, fifty years later!
    What a gift she gave me, I life time love of fragrance.
    Thanks ladies for your wonderful site and congratulations on your one year birthday.X
