    Default Scent Synchronization Day - Fall '08!

    Alright everyone. The recent thread about our fall favorites got me craving my fall scents, & since we're entering a new season I think it's time to do another Scent Synchronization Day!

    For new members, here's the deal: We try to pick a fragrance that is pretty popular amongst Basenoters so we could get as much participation as possible. Once the fragrance is selected, we pick a day (far enough out so people can obtain a sample if they don't own the frag) to all wear that particular fragrance. Then at the end of the day we discuss what we think about that particular frag.

    Right now, I'd like to take some suggestions of possible frags. After about a week or so, I'll make a poll from the most popular suggestions, & the winner will be our SSD frag!

    Let me start off by suggesting:

    Burberry Brit
    Gaultier2
    M7
    Rochas Man
    "Wait...is David Bowie really God?" - Penelope Garcia

    My suggestions:

    SL Chergui
    YSL Rive Gauche
    MPG Santal Noble
    Narciso Rodriguez for Him (maybe a easier one to do)

    Great idea CJ!

    I suggest London by Burberry. I happen to like this more than Brit, and I think it smells great when the weather's cooler.

    We actually did M7 a long time ago as a SSD. It was the first one I took part in, but that was a while ago and I wouldn't see why we couldn't do it again.

    RG (Pour Homme?) wouldn't be a stretch for me - I wear it about 50% of the time already!
    Brit and London are easily obtainable, so may be good choices.

    Thanks for kicking this off, CJ!

    We should do a unisex so men and women can do it, this would be the fairest approach.

    I would like to see Armani Attitude and Gucci PH up for consideration since they're more likely to be owned by more people than, say, something from Lutens or Malle.

    Yahoo! I love Scent Synchronization Days. Thanks for getting the ball rolling on this, CJ.

    MikePerez and I must be sharing a brain, because Burberry London was also my first thought to request after reading the initial list.

    Also, if we go with London, users of both genders will have the choice of whether to use the masculine or feminine version of the juice -- Personally, while I think London for Women is okay, I really love London for Men, and that's what I'd wear hands down!

    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    AdG? No wait, that's already what every male wears every day

    Given the diverse tastes and multitude of differences between members' wardrobes, I move to consider maybe the allowance of either two or three different alternatives (also voted on though) to the "true" synchronized scent?

    But, but, but.... then it wouldn't be a synchronized scent! I would prefer to keep it to one single scent, as nature intended.

    I'd be up for it. I own M7 and have a BIG sample of Gaulthier2 (A nice "Thank You" to MFfan310!) but can probably get some of the others as long as the choice is something designer and easy on the wallet (No Amouage or Bond No9's and the like, please....I'm broke as a joke! No joke....).

    As long as I have enough notice and access to the scent........love it!!

    I'll keep my eyes peeled, CJ!


    I can feel a poll comin' on!!

    Have no fear all...there WILL be a poll! I'm gonna take the top suggestions from this thread & make them into a poll in a few days.

    And yeah, the purpose of SSD is for everyone to wear the same scent on that particular day. I mean, think about how cool it is when you're browsing the SOTD thread & you see that you have a scent twin. Imagine how cool it is knowing that dozens of your basenotes brothers & sisters are wearing the same scent you are wearing that day! And again, the SSD will be set out a few weeks to allow anyone who doesn't own the chosen scent to obtain a sample.

    Great suggestions so far, keep them coming!

    Although I love (and have) Kouros, Yatagan, and YSLRGPH, I agree that Burberry London would be great. I came very close to buying it already. Just give me an excuse! Please! Or if you wanted to make it more than one scent, it could be a tobacco scent "smoke-in", with London leading the pack.

    But I'm OK with M7 or Rochas Man, too. Lots of other good suggestions.

    Poll! Poll! Poll!

    how about one of these?

    -armani attitude

    these are some that most people might have. I have been meaning to retest gaultier 2 to see if vanilla is still forever cursed to the dammed infernos of fragrant hell.
