    Lightbulb Same Scent Day: Experiment

    How about this for a crazy idea: we designate one day, one special day that will be known as the Same Scent Day when everyone's Scent of the Day is the same scent?

    We could take a poll and after we've chosen the scent, everyone participating posts to the SOTD thread--to show they're participating--and then, afterwards all participants post their take on the SSD. What was the frag like on you, the drydown, etc. Any compliments? Etc., etc.

    What do you all think?

    We already do this . It's called Scent Synchronization Day. Our last one was in September...perhaps it's time for another one??

    Let's do something more risky this time. How about Chergui?

    How about something a lot of people would have access to? I don't doubt there are a lot of members who own Creeds and other niche houses, but then again there are those who don't.

    Proving the old truism that there's nothing new under the sun! Thanks, CJ!

    I think it'd be great, but we obviously need to choose something that is "common", by which I mean in quantity not quality!

    I'll put in a poll.

    ifconfig & LeMale have the right idea. This only works if it's a frag that the many members have a bottle of, or can easily get a decant or sample from a department store or from a fellow basenoter. The goal is to get as many people to participate as possible!!!

    The last scent synchronization day was back in september as said CJ (and I couldn't be in since I didn't own the juice ) so it's time for another one for sure, hoping to be able to participate this time.
    Moreover, actually dear Riannon&Co on the female board are close to have a whole Lutens themed week, so why not to ride the horse and get in also from our baby naughty boys side?
    Btw, I'll be at least partially in!

    It should also be said that GIT was our SSD scent last year, too. A great scent, for sure, but we should probably pick something else this time . Anyone remember what the one before GIT was?

    The ones I remember has been GIT and Mugler Cologne. Haven't been around long enough to remember the earlier ones...

    Voted for Le Troisieme Homme (3rd man), one I've been curious about for some time. I'm 100% certain it won't win this round looking back on previous votings for SSD:s. Let's try and not be overly predicatable please, more fun (inmo) that way!

    Smile Re: Same Scent Day: Experiment

    I voted for Dolce and Gabbana Pour Homme as I think that might be the one scent on the list more Basenoters might have in their collection. But hey! ..what the heck do I know!

    I would also be willing to send out some small tube samples decanted from my own bottle to a dozen or so Basenoters who dont have D & G Pour Homme at my expense (stamp/envelope/wrapping/vials if I could get some in time). I just need a quick and inexpensive small order source of the small sample vials to do it.

    Anyone else willing to do the same? We should be able to get this organized if D & G is the choice, otherwise, I will do the same with any other scent chosen that I own in bottle size. (See my Wardrobe)

    I voted for Gaultier² for several reasons: It's a great scent, it's extremely accessible, and it's unisex (so the ladies can join in if they like). Plus, the TV commercial rocks... "I've got to have you..."

    P.S.: Our past SSDs were for (in order, from most to least recent): Mugler Cologne, GIT, Azzaro Visit, and Guerlain Vetiver.

    I'm glad you voted for Gaultier2 . I was on the fence between this & Bvlgari Black. I ended up going for BB. I remember that Bvlgari Black was the runner up frag when Mugler Cologne won. And I think more people probably own BB than G2. But, I wouldn't shed a tear if G2 won .

    I'm pretty sure that A*men was chosen for a past SSD.

    Oh, and my vote goes for the Dreamer! I think that this is a great scent that nearly everyone can appreciate (as long as you give it a few wearings).

    Perhaps you could make it possible to select multiple options? I selected D&G but I wouldn't mind following another selection.

    Once again, like in the 'Masterpiece' thread, Egoiste is in the lead. Will it keep that lead, I wonder?

    I'd like to put together some questions for SSD participants to answer, such as:

    How many sprays or dabs?
    Where?
    10 minutes after application, what are your impressions?
    Ask a family member for their opinion: did they like it? What were their descriptive?
    Half-way through the day (4 hours after initial application), do you still smell it?
    What are your impressions at that time?
    What's the sillage like, do you think? Did anyone notice and comment?
    Ask a co-worker if they can smell your perfume, if you feel comfortable doing that. What are their impressions, descriptives?
    What are your normal activities during the day (office, etc.)?
    What are your end of day impressions? Still going strong or mellow or non-existent?
    Ask someone if they can smell your frag at this point. Impressions?

    Anything else you'd like to know so we can compare the answers?

    Thanks!

    I voted Genvy... Delicious! I think Egoiste is winning, but not as many people have access to it. Even fragrance stores like Perfume Pizzaz are no longer offering samples or even a test spray of it.

    I didn't participate before as I did not have any of those frags at the time. I voted for Bvlgari Black because I like it and it's well spread among the community...I think.

    I agree...

    Remember, all, that this isn't necessarily a "best frag" contest out of these selections, it's more of a question of what the majority of members either have or could easily get access to a sample.

    Well, I voted for BB because it is the only scent I own, but I would not be averse to trying to make it to my local mall and spritz myself with Gaultier 2 or even , more interesting Egoiste.
    Will be looking forward to a bottle of 3rd man soon, for my honey, can a woman wear this?

    I chose Rive Gauche. I don't think I've ever seen a wardrobe that didn't end in Rive Gauche. There are several scents listed that I don't own/like as there are plenty of things I do own which make people gag and put me on their ignore list. Best of luck

    btw: 13 scents listed that I don't own.
