    I'm in with O de Lancome.

    Oooooo nice! I have Shalimar and No5 from that list at the moment, though... I think I have a couple of Coco samples somewhere, sent by the ever-so-generous BN-ers. O de Lancome would be perfect if it's hot...

    I'll go with whatever you guys pick! I can always nip down to a perfume shop to spray some if you pick a scent I don't have

    Oh, this weekend will become the warmest yet this year
    here in Scandinavia, I guess it will be hot as hell on the
    British Islands too?!

    Looks like we're going with Ô de Lancôme?!

    I don't have Ô de Lancôme and it won't be hot on the Pacific Coast, so I'll be happy to join either in #19 or in Miss Dior Cherie.
    Of course, I can also join in Poison -- original, pure, or hypnotic!
    Right now I'm leaning to join in #19 to start the Sniff & Speak early, but let's see what everyone else thinks.

    Fun fun!!

    My wardrobe contains:

    N°5 Eau Première
    N°19
    Coco
    Coco Mademoiselle
    Cristalle
    Miss Dior Chérie
    Poison
    Samsara

    It seems N°19 is shared between Warum, Inees and me. Shall we three synchronize with this one?

    And of course I also have No 5, Samsara, Shalimar.

    I can do no 5, Coco, Miss Dior and Shalimar. I do know O de Lancome as I used to wear it daily in warm weather. i shall try to get a squirt of some if you choose it. If not, then I shall just remember it with you. My sister may have no 19...

    Of those we are discussing, I have N°5, N°5 Eau Première, N°19, Coco & Samsara. Either don't have or can't wear Coco Mademoiselle, O de Lancome or Shalimar.

    No 19 would be my 1st choice, Eau Premiere, my second choice but any of the "have" list would be fine with me.

    Looks as if everyone has at least one of the Chanels on the list, but perhaps not everyone has one in common. Perhaps we should all synchronize by wearing a Chanel - Synchronized Perfume House Friday??

    Well, that seems like a good ides,
    and a hell of a lot easier to generate.
    Lets try to find a frag, if not, then
    just a Chanel of any choise.

    Next week, we could do this as a poll,
    with unlimited answers, that way, it'll
    be easier to get an overview!

    I don't have all of those on the list. Last time I think I didn't have any of them. I think a synchronized house wearing would work better toward involving more of us, though it would be more fun if everybody could wear the same fragrance and compare notes. I like the idea of Poison - any Poison, too.

    Most of us must have one of the Poisons, no?!

    Are we doing Poisons?!
    Or House of Chanel?!

    We could go with two fragrances to choose from,
    so that we have two sets of syncronized ppl.
    It's not quite the same, just to be in the same house!

    OK, ladies ... how about this;

    Instead of just Chanel frags,
    lets try to use a many different
    ones as possible, that would be
    cool.

    I would be first to call then, and
    I have a huge sample of

    '31 Rue Cambon', what do you say?!
    What would you be in, try to chose one that
    haven't been chosen before ...

    The only Chanels I have are #19, #22 and Bois des Iles, I can take any of these for Chanel if we're doing as many different ones as we can, not synchronizing.

    (i love the idea in synchronizing in #19 though -- but it's tough, not everyone always has the fragrances)

    it is fun!

    Well it took a lot of posting back and forth to arrive at 'House of Chanel Day', but we're finally here!

    I'm wearing Sycamore (from a sample). Beautiful, cool, dark, greens, incense and tobacco smoke. There's a subtle sweetness to it as well, that balances it perfectly. Just gorgeous!

    Actually there is a point in wearing exactly the same perfume if that were logistically possible. We would all have to send each other little samples for the day. It felt very nice last week absolutely knowing there were 11 people around the world who smelt the same as me. It was a sort of long distance bonding affection thing with other human beings.

    I wonder if there is a guiness book of records statistic for the most known people wearing the same frag on the same day......

    Now there is a challenge.......

    I like the idea of seeking a Guinness World Record! Of course, there would be endless discourse on what frag to choose before we settled on something like Mitsouko or No. 5.

    I'm in my Bel Respiro, which has that discreet Chanel air, but with a tendril connected with the outside world of vegetation. Today I'm thinking that if I worked as a receptionist, I would trust this scent to be tidy and professional, but still beautiful in an accessible sort of way — not aloof as some Chanels can be.

    I remember liking Chanel's Gardenia, Brielle. You're not alone in the love.

    I'm with you gals! It's the prettiest gardenia I've tried. I just wish it lasted longer.
    I'd suit up in 22 if I didn't have an interview this morning. I'll wear Chance. That should be safe, right?

    I love Gardenia, Brielle !!! You are not alone ! I love it. RainDropSparkle loves it too. Damn - I should have worn Gardenia with you . I went with my little No.18 sample instead. Never mind.....later today !

    I'm wearing Chanel Beige now (thanks to Sunnyfunny). I find thie one delectable. I get the honey, the fruitiness of the freesia, the frangipani...but I don't think I'm familiar with hawthorn. I smell other things too, some other white florals, something banana'ish (?), and something a bit incense-ish, whatever that is, hopefully not my imagination. It becomes super sweet and heady on my skin...right down my alley. How could I not love this one?
