    For Scent Sychronization Day I wanted to wear Bwah de Eel. (I like eels!)

    But, knowing that many would already be wearing the one Chanel that cooperates with me uncomplainingly, I decided to go with

    Chanel No. 22 parfum (circa early/mid 80s).

    I have a tough time wearing Chanel's signature aldehydic topnotes, but I am finally getting the incense thing others talk about with this scent. Particularly 30 minutes in.

    I wonder if that incense is a result of wearing 22 with Secret Vanilla Chai Anti-Perspirant. This anti-perspirant has a shockingly strong and tenacious scent. The combination of vanilla pudding under my arms and No. 22 on the pulse points seems to improve both.

    But again, my nose is still wonky and can't be trusted.

    Add one more to the list for:
    Bois des Iles
    I used to love Bulgari Omnia until I bought a bottle that had probably been sitting on a shelf in a little, un-airconditioned store in Boston for years. The black pepper top notes had overtaken the entire scent. I lamented, "Where would I ever find that nice gingerbread-sandalwood again?"
    Years later, kumquat introduced me to this beautiful Chanel.
    Warm, soft, sweet, delicious without being gourmand. Airy, diffusive, yet stays close to the skin. Beautiful like a light musk.
    What's not to love?
    I wish Chanel would put it back in the perfume counters.

    I love Chanel in general--the house seems to go with my skin chemistry and my personality. Today I had a difficult time deciding, but eventually settled on:

    *********Coco EDP*********

    It was at one time my "signature scent". This was around the time it first came out in the 80's. I wore it for many years in all concentrations, and had all the body products. I eventually stopped wearing it some time in the late 90's. I still love its powdery, spicy, floral combination. It is really the only thing at the time which could push Coty Wild Musk of its throne, lol

    Today's SSD choices are:

    Cuir de Russie applied in the morning
    Bois des Iles spritzed on in the afternoon
    Allure Sensuelle for bed

    I'll be wearing the EDT versions. As they only last about 6 hours on me... I can wear three different scents in one day.

    Always the odd duck, I figured I'd be alone in my choice for this transparent, chemical concoction. I can't defend my affinity for it with any obvious praises--it's really odd stuff, but like iso-e super, there's something artificially attractive there. It's sort of floral, with cucumber-like lightness, but some Chanel-like woodiness. Luca Turin, who gives it 4 stars, says "it may end up appealing to the phalanx of women who don't really like perfume." To quote Bugs Bunny, "He don't know me vewwy well, do he?"
    Happy B-Day, Schachman--I don't know you (yet), and that appears to be my loss.

    WordBird--Congrats on becoming a real woman.

    Darn, forgot about Chanel day on BN.

    Today I have Mitsouko parfum on the right arm - am getting the fruity peach accord now - and Jicky parfum on the left arm - dry lavender/slightly soapy; not as crisp as the EDT formulation on me. I'm smelling pretty good, if I do say so.

    For Chanel day, I would have worn Antaeus, just for the fun of it.
