    Default Scent Synchronization Day Autumn/Spring 2009!

    Hi everyone!

    Last year we had a Scent Synchronization Day to celebrate the arrival of autumn in the Northern Hemisphere and spring in the Southern Hemisphere. So I am proposing we do it again this year.

    The premise is for us as a group (men and women) to decide on one fragrance that we will all wear on a particular day. We should be aiming to pick a fragrance that most of us already own or can easily obtain a sample of – so no niche please. Once we pick the fragrance, we all wear it on that day and post our thoughts about the fragrance. I am proposing that day to be Tuesday, September 22, 2009.

    What I would like to do in this thread is for people to start naming a fragrance(s) that they think we be a good candidate for us to wear. I will then post a poll next week with the top vote getters. We will then vote on the poll and the winner will be selected. The poll will close well ahead of the SSD so people can obtain a sample if they need to.

    BTW – Last year’s fragrance was Burberry London for Men, so we should try to choose something different this year.

    I will kick off the suggestions with Guerlain Vetiver.

    Definitely John Varvatos...my favorite autumn fragrance

    L'Anarchiste! I think that one would work quite well ... not sure about the availability of samples or testers though. Bottles are cheap enough though.

    I'll suggest Burberry London. It's a solid scent that is not very expensive and easy to find...

    I Have guerlain's vetiver coming in,and hopefully, it'll make it here on the 22nd.

    probably not the best suggestions, but here's something for both sexes
    Bvlgari black
    Kenzo Power

    LF: CAP/LID for Creed Original vetiver and Creed Millesime Imperiale, 75ml. Please pm me.. Thanks!

    If that weren't last year's choice, it surely would have been mine.

    Guess I should read the whole thread, huh??

    In that case, I'll nominate Rive Gauche PH... It's an even better scent that's cheaper while still being easy to find...

    I second the John Varvatos, and I'll also throw in Narciso Rodriguez for Him, Azzaro Chrome, PdN New York (if you want niche), and YSL L'Homme and Kouros.

    Well, whatever it's going to be, I want in!

    Bulgari Black would have been great, but it's already been done.

    I sheepishly suggest Terre d'Hermès. I know a lot of people are less than thrilled with that one, but it is popular, overall. Polo Modern Reserve might be a good fall scent, with enough homage to old school for people who like classics, but fresh enough for people who like modern stuff.

    What about Chanel? Any suggestions there? I tend to think that Édition Blanche is a bit too cool, but it is popular, and worth sniffing for those who haven't. Or maybe one of their older classics.

    I would go for L'Homme, or the new flanker La Nuit de L'Homme.

    Guerlain Homme? Seems more spring than fall to me, but maybe we should give this one to the boys and girls down under.

    Lots of possibilities....

    I hope I get my TdH in the mail if that's the scent we go with.

    can I just chime in and suggest Obsession for men?

    I bought a bottle a while back, and find myself just spraying it on my wrist, or on my pillow and now today on a wall post, I'm literally afraid to put it on, and this might be the perfect "excuse" to go with a full wearing.

    L'Anarchiste - everyone needs to experience this while the leaves are changing color. It's one of the most powerful scent related experiences I've ever had. As a bonus, the scent can definitely be pulled off by women.

    L'Anarchiste sounds great to me.

    Tea for Two is a great suggestion too.
    And i will throw Chene into the mix. This one screams Autumn to me.
    The only problem with these two -- not enough people own either of them to work for a SSD.

    I think we should avoid Rive Gauche, TdH, Guerlain Vetiver, etc.. any scent that almost everyone has smelled. I think we should go with something that less people have smelled that isn't terribly difficult to sample.

    I'd be willing to send out samples of L'Anarchiste if I wasn't down to my last 5ml .
