Yes that is really true for me too!!!
Kiliawa! Aaarghh! To die for! How does it smell?
Sort of in synch, that's a scent I discovered and brought in 2015!
Happy and fragrant 2016!
thos old films were fascinating! when I went to you tube i got suggestions for a lot more!
I would definitely go to the pergamon Museum!
I have nothing for next Friday, I will have to give it a twist or something.
I love the list for next year! I can't wait for the Crypt, mossy, dirty and decay Friday! Brilliantly named!
And we should never ever let go of a Chypre Friday!
I totally missed last weeks...
I can totally deal with ''stalker'' when it's in jest. I'm against being so PC that you can't make a joke. I think I will choose Kumquat, who has the loveliest wardrobe!
Excellent idea, although I'm not sure about what it means to stalk a basenoter
I'm in Spellbound, Estee Lauder! Very spicy.
Foustie, of course you need your sleep, enjoy your time alone and your Christmas!
I have been working like a beast over the last week, and looking after my husbands grandchild. I'm alone too now....
I have given the hubby a 1 liter bottle of Paco Rabanne, and it needs to be decanted in a more reasonable sized bottle for use. He is not happy with the ''nemat'', (bestbottles) bottle I got him, he...
I had no idea we can send ingredients....
Ho! Just nosed the PONK nose, there's a whole website set up! Excellent!
I'm in for a PONK membership. I have long been wishing for a better and more informed sense of smell.
I have been accumulating a certain number (though by no means complete) of essential oils, as I...
As promised: The one liter bottle of vintage Paco Rabanne. The colour of the juice is an orangy amber brown. The bottle is actually clear. It is very, very good! It does have more depth, it is more...
The seller put up good photos, but the bottle is brown of course, Anyway, it's on it's way here now!
I'll post pictures...
Or you could print a list of the fragrances suggested, and also look at the fragrance directory, and check out TJMaxx if you have one in your area.
My plan is to pick a fictional character each day and then imagine what they would wear. And then spray. or dab.
RHM, I'm very sorry to hear about your loss
Actually, although of course the juice will get used, and it is cheaper than a lot of small bottles, it was a bit of a joke too to get him such a enormous bottle. He didn't get it...
They do come around, I got him a 1 liter bottle of the modern Paco Rabanne three years ago, that one's nearly gone. Time for a new one.
I decant them for him in a smaller glass spray bottle, they...
The vintage has more depth according to the reviews, he has been using it for the last 30 years...
C Rose! Thank you thank you thank you! I got an ENORMOUS bag and am working on the Donna Karan right now! I have wanted to try the Black Cashmere for ages!
I am so happy with all these new olfactory...
I am really excited about next week, this is one week I plan to really relish!
I brought a vintage bottle of Paco Rabanne... 1 liter!!!!!!!!!!
My Christmas gift to the hubby, who showers in Paco Rabanne. I hope it's good, it was quite expensive!
Betsy, I generally wear/enjoy a scent for many days in a row. It seems to be the natural way. Of course for some special occasion I will look for something appropriate.
No, no, of course the extrait is worth buying! It's far more rare though, and the EdT is qood. I usually don't go for EdT because I think they're wishy-washy, and often also different, like a...
You can easily go for an Eau de Toilette, these vintage EdTs are usually about as strong as the modern perfumes. Just make sure you get a real vintage one. Make sure it's from...
PS, the hubby who is super sensitive to scents, and can't abide any artificial ingredients, approves of the vintage Chantilly. Almost a miracle!
And even better, in my experience you can go for any...
Could I still join? I would like to try these. I do have vintage Chantilly, and am a big fan. I even choose it for my wedding perfume!!! To me it is a bit powdery, oriental and very, very alluring...
I am planning on one of my perfumes from Hové or Bourbon French, they are lovely and I think you can't get more niche than with a perfume you can only buy from the maker and nowhere else.
I'd like bag#1 otherwise I also like bag #2, especially the Black cashmere!.
Either one would be great!
There are posts online with tips how to open ancient bottles, but it is tricky!
I thought I'd finish this with the seller refunding me 10 dollars, which I consider reasonable. I just saw this version in TJ Maxx today for 39 dollars, which I what I payed for it at the end.
Never heard of this, it sound fantastic and one I will need to try!
I have quite a lots of spicy scents, I don't think I have anything coffee or tea? I want to wear something I don't usually wear. I will figure it out tomorrow.
The suspense is killing me!
I am going to wait and see what the next batch is like, I would only want to try Fath de Fath from this batch so it would be unfair to claim it.
Oh, Foustie, now I need to try all those scents! You write so enticing!
Quarry, I am experiencing a novelty: I am in synch in my one sample of Tom Ford, Violet Blonde, never gave it a try before today.
Actually, I have the most gorgeous samples thanks to all my...
I am in synch! I have rummaged through my samples, and found one Tom Ford!
I am in Violet Blonde!
It is a very violetty scent, but now the middel notes ar up I like it much better, something deep...
I now notice I inverted the A and O...
Working My Ass Off...
I invented it this morning.
I am happy to say that the dinner went very well, the Turkey was perfect. I am getting better at it every year. This year I did a dry brine, highly...
I always knew my spirit animal was a guinea pig!
I am wearing Azurée today, super spicy, because I thought it was friday, and it was spices synch.
WMOA for thanksgiving dinner tonight, that might have some influence
Yes, great photos, lovely dog!
Very vintage tabu of course
In synch with Tabu
Foustie, what a funny story!
I am in the sadly discontinued Balmain de Balmain. Definitely unisex IMHO.
PS, I wear chypres to Heavy Metal concerts! They do fine there!
Arida, your English is fine, don't worry! I don't see chypres at all like that. I think it is an idea based on that fact that the accord, and it really is the accord which makes a chypre a chypre, is...
Hee Magie Noire smells good again? I am going to ave to check it out!
A chypre without the chypre accord is not a chypre.
I think the manufacturers are now misusing the word. No oakmoss, no chypre.
I haven't joined in because no suitable scents, but today I am in Interlude, bu Amouage, and it does have something boozy, so I think I am synching today.
Looking forward towards the next week...
Tabu (only vintage)
La Perla (layered with Tweed for special occasions)
That is of some help. I don't think it's a fake, just a different version, it's the frosted bottle with the flower, but spray painted it and it looks ugly, I do think it's legit, just an ugly...
I can't find anything boozy :( , I'll go with Halston for today.
Thanks for the link I will check it
So guys, give me your opinion please.
I wanted a bottle of Aromatic Elixir and I decided to go for the limited edition bottle, now there are two types
I wanted this one:...
No synchronized fridays is the best! Every time I am AWOL for too long Friday synchs is what brings me back!
I like the idea of ''comfort scent!'' That will be very interesting!
That would be Miss Baimain again!
Darn missed it then. Well that will show me what I get for not being on Basenotes often enough!
We used to do the gender swap thing for synchronized fridays, I thought it was great fun, don't know if I would do it for a week though.
Did we had a synch where you would wear the scent of your...
OMG!!! That was hilarious!!!!
I have just been away for some time too Quarry. Work, being a Stepford wife, pets... It all takes up so much of my time!
Oh well, darn... The Q just called me to tell me he's working tomorrow night so no party and no dressing up.
Maybe I'll dress up on sunday just because I want to show you :(
Foxbins, it is of course vintage extrait, brought for my own birthday.
I really need to make good photo of it and post it!
I brought a bottle of Aromatics Elixir
I have to fess' up, I did also buy a new bottle of aromatics Elixir. But that's definitely all for now!
I will have to keep it inside my wardrobe. I can't buy anything new just now. (because I spent all my pocket money on vintage/antique bolts of gorgeous Japanese kimono silks!)
I was very much drawn...
I am in a good whallop of Cabochard!
Ha! I wondered about Tabu myself! But although I love it, (vintage) it seems to have such a bad reputation.
I am going to go for Cabochard tomorrow!!!!
I love Great Danes! I bet no place is safe from them.
Although you should not underestimate a lab/whippet mix.... Expert counter top surfers!
All very good, yes, Magie Noire of course! I have a tiny vintage bottle!
I was thinking of l'Arte di Gucci myself....
Dark rose, funeral lily.... oh yes!
I can see the Aromatics elixir and...
Bandit would be interesting, I am intrigued by Spellbound. The name is brilliantly appropriate as well.
I am going to dress up as Morticia. Now what perfume would Morticia wear?
Something classic, elegant, dark and sultry, but with a real bite!
I'm not sure, maybe Miss Balmain, but it seems to pop up at almost every synch. I'm going to spray later in the day, after work.
Yes, that's a very good point to remember
I am afraid she sound gorgeous and will get attention if she wears nothing. (perfume wise) I concur with letting her try Bottega Veneta, and Arpege.
I was in Miss Balmain since 15, and always ready...
Good idea, I like it! Especially Chypre week!
I don't care either BoyChanel, Yeah, I found a grey hair so I just googled, silver hair. Because when the grey really hits I am going to go all white in one fell swoop!
And so I found out it's the...
Yes, I hear you. Same problem here... I do Japanese tea ceremony and now I have ten tea bowls. It needs to stop!
Jon, those stairs are amazing! Love the fish one.
Kumquat, lovely case, and beautiful collection!
It looks great!
I don't think it's strange at all.
I always planned to go all white/grey once I am getting grey hairs, and go for the French Marquise look, but I just found out it's the hottest...
Halston, brought a small bottle at TJ Maxx for 4 dollar, and that was very well spent!
I brought a bottle of Halston natural spray at TJ-Maxx, for $4 yay!
Hi everybody, not in synch, I don't own any Serge L, I am in a good dollop of Estee Lauder's Knowing.
I once spent a whole evening watching all the haka's of the All Blacks on You Tube!
My grandmother had sachets of lavender all over too, we made them as children, I still make them, but I often do a mix of rosemary and lavender. I used to buy it in bulk from France, it was so cheap...
In synch with Encre Noire, by Lalique. (pour homme of course)
A mega vetiver-bomb! Works well in warm weather and perfect for visiting the horse.
Knit, I never realized that the original Ivoire...
This will be an easy one as to bottles, I have a few vintage Coty, and I have a number of vintage Houbigant. The problem will be in which to chose!
Bourjois is a favorite of mine too! For many years the only eye pencils I would use.
In synch and scent twin with Kumquat in Estee Lauder's Azurée! a vintage bottle btw.
Aromatic Elixir, by Clinique.
And I got a compliment! I was in the Kimbell museum and a lady hàd to ask me what I was wearing!
About that shark attack, I think it's always good to read the other side's story.
I have a vintage Eau de Lanvin, My Sin, and I don't like it very much.
I wore Encre Noire by Lalique for this morning's flyball training, the heat was killing, most is washed offf now, will change to Aperçu by Houbigant after shower.
Poor dog! Great halloween idea though...
