    Default Time for another Scent Synchronization Day?

    What do you all feel about this? For newer members, this is where we all pick a scent that many people have in their wardrobe or could easily obtain samples of & wear it on the same day. Recently, we've done this with Dior Homme, Mugler Cologne, & Green Irish Tweed. Let's use this thread to make suggestions, & after many have chimed in I'll make a poll out of the 7 or 8 most recommended frags. Then after the winner is chosen, we'll set the scent synchronization date out a couple weeks so people can obtain samples if they don't have the frag in their wardrobe.

    I'll start. I'm looking forward to cooler weather, so I'll suggest Bvlgari Black, YSL M7, & Burberry Brit.

    I wouldn't mind Burberry Brit or Gucci pour Homme! Sounds like a lot of fun.

    Bulgari Black sounds like a great idea - I have never given it a full wearing.

    I'm sure up for this party. I'll wear most anything, but I've already got M7. I'd go for trying out Egoiste or Anteaus too, or even Allure.

    I'll pitch in.........

    Got M7....actually haven't worn it in a while.

    Don't own Bvl Black or the Brit, but I'm sure I could get some.

    What do you guys and gals think of D&G PH.....just throwing that one out there.

    What a fantastic idea! The great thing about this is I have a 75ml bottle of Bvlgari Black arriving tomorrow, and the even better thing is I only had to pay £6 ($12) courtesy of a pricing mistake on the cheapsmells website!! Hows that for a bargain?

    I also have YSL Body Kouros arriving tomorrow, both blind buys but I'm feeling confident and with Black being so cheap I don't think I can go wrong!

    I'm extremely curious about M7 aswell, I've heard very good things.

    Great idea guys, I'll post up my opinions of Bvlgari Black tomorrow.

    Sounds really fun.

    I've never actually tested Bvlgari Black on my skin... this just might give me an excuse to buy a bottle. YSL M7 is one of my faves, too. (I liked Brit for a while, but I swapped it as I stopped liking it).

    Another idea of mine: Gaultier&#178;. I'm surprised that Ann didn't mention this one, as it's a fave of hers. And it's one of my faves, too... plus if we chose this, all the ladies could synchronize with us, too! Scent Synchronization Day for Humanity, anyone? Or, if we would prefer to use a traditional masculine scent, Armani Code and Sean John Unforgivable could be good bets, too.

    Gaultier2 is fine, as well.

    But Black and G2 are the only ones I own that have been mentioned so far.

    non of them, I got Brit for Men (i never wear this one), Bulgari Black is to sweet for me (it is a nice scent, maybe in the coldest winter), but i would wear Original Santal or Green Irish Tweed (Creed), French Lover (Frederic Malle), Rive Gauche (YSL) or Terre d&#180;Herm&#233;s (Herm&#233;s), Egoiste (Chanel), Homme or Fahrenheit (Dior), John Varvotos!!!

    I thought about suggesting G2 in my original post but I didn't know if a lot of the other members owned it & liked it. I know there are a few of us that do!

    I currently only have brit, but have been wanting to pickup M7 & Black for quite sometime now. So any of the current suggestions sound great

    Lightbulb Re: Time for another Scent Synchronization Day?

    I haven't worn M7 or Burberry Brit in QUITE a while (it's still too damn HOT here to wear either one), so I'll nominate those 2. Plus, I think some of the ladies here could pull off wearing either of those 2.

    Gaultier&#178; , because a) it's such a chameleon and b) it's fairly available all over the country and c) can be worn by either gender.

    I'd be fine with several of the fragrances mentioned.

    [edit] I'm deleting my proposal of Fleur du M&#226;le, because it's so new on the market that it's relatively hard to get samples or cheap bottles.

    I'll jump in with support for M7, Brit, or Gucci Envy.

    I also think it would be cool to do a Chanel classic like Egoiste or Antaeus.

    And another name I'll throw into the ring is CK Obsession, a mainstream classic that I think is so far past its overexposed heyday, it's now underrated.

    Finally, I'd like to suggest KOUROS, just because I think the world needs more KOUROS (seriously), although I do not expect that such a polarizing fragrance would ever gain the necessary consensus.

    Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

    No more hunger. No more suffering. Kouros is just that damn good.

    M7, Envy, Gucci pour Homme all sound like appropriate fall scents. G2 however, I am not a big fan of.

    Keep the suggestions coming, guys & gals. I'll probably tally the most popular requests this weekend...most likely Sunday. Then I'll create a poll & we can choose from there!
