The Australian Invasion
Perfume Pic of the Week, No 6: The Australian Invasion – Sniffing at Bloom Perfumery

Saturday was a very fun day indeed, for it was the day that the Australian Perfume Junkies came to town! Sniffing trips are always full of enjoyment but tend to be a whole heap better when shared with fellow perfume lovers, so it was with a bucket full of joy that I met up with Vanessa of Bonkers About Perfume, Tara of Olfactoria’s Travels, Freddie of Smellythoughts, Joshua of The Smelly Vagabond, Nick of @fragrantreviews and Portia, Val and Michael of Australian Perfume Junkies.

The day consisted of a trio of treats; sniffing perfume at Bloom followed by award wining fish and chips next door at Poppies (well calamari and chips for me) before even more sniffing at Les Senteurs. My main aim of the day, other than socialising of course, was to pick up a new rose perfume, so at Bloom I headed straight for the Parfumerie Generale bottles to try the widely respecte Brulure de Rose (I’m not sure how I feel about this one) and the new Isparta (review to come soon). Neither hit the spot so I have nabbed some samples and will be revisiting them over the coming weeks. I did realise just how much I need a bottle of Djhenné though and am now 99.9% sure on the wedding scent front, so it was a very worthy trip indeed!
