    It is still Thursday night on this end of the date line, but I am NOT missing/forgetting Scent Sync Friday!

    YSL Paris

    From a mini. Perhaps it's just as well, as Paris is a little, er, intense for the warmth of early August in the tropics. Hugs to all as I head off to bed...

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Avon Occur, this was still available from Avon UK up to a few years back. Sadly it gets lost in my collection but each time I do wear I realize what a great fragrance it really is. Powdery leather chypre.

    Le Parfum, C'est Ma Vie, Neil Morris...aldehydes, rasberry, plum, rose heart, amber and sheer musk are some notes listed on the website. soft and pretty!
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    Mo, you smell fabulous! I wore & enjoyed Nude for YEARS!

    There are only 2 Grosjman's in my house right now...White Linen and Tresor...and I cannot decide between the two! Will have to wait and see.

    Today we're doing créations
    de Sophia Grojsman


    wow, thanks for the opportunity to study this perfumer, Duke! I had SO MANY of her fragrances back in the day and didn't realize they were all by the same nose. Unfortunately, I don't have any of them at hand right now! I'll have to decant some of Mom's Tresor next time I see her. Hey, do you all remember that cute black and white ex-clam-a' tion (sp??) bottle? I loved that in high school!

    So last night and this morning I spritzed some
    on my shirtfront (as it seems lately to react stragely directly on my skin)

    and this afternoon am thinking about


    haven't decided on this evening yet! Have a great Friday BNers!

    Hello everyone -

    I'm in the rich and opulent Jaipur by Boucheron. The mellow but radiant plumminess in this reminds me of Mauboussin, but Jaipur is sweeter, rosier and a bit less intense than Mauboussin. Hm...now I'm in the mood for Mauboussin.

    Estee Lauder - White Linen

    Blazing-hot, white rose scent- pierces through all others.
    I always think of clean, white sheets,
    and the sun bleaching them.

    Created by Sophia Grojsman in 1978.
    Top: citrus, peach and jasmine.
    Heart: lilac, rose and amber.
    Base: cedarwood, sandalwood and benzoin.

    I have chosen YVRESSE by Sophia Grojsman for our syncronised Friday.
    I find this has a very strong personality and I have to be in the mood for its
    chipper, upbeat vibe. It is definitely an optimistic, exultant perfume and almost
    too theatrical for my taste.
    A fruity chypre.
    A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.

    I forgot about Scent Synch Friday! I almost went for Bulgari pour Femme this morning, and even that didn't jog my memory. I'm wearing En Passant as SotD. This evening I may wear Sun Moon Stars, which I have a smidge of. I think of Sun Moon Stars, Trésor, and Eternity as sisters, like the three fates. TGFIF!

    editng to add: I have no idea what TGFIF above stands for...insert "F" word of your choice I suppose.

    I needed a green scent today and reached for Hampton Sun Privet Bloom edp. a

    And now we are headed to the Mystic Marinelife Aquarium. Coincidentally, this is where hubby and I had our first date exactly 19 years ago, on August 6, 1991.

    I'm wearing Bulgari pour Femme today, the only Sophia Grojsman fragrance in my wardrobe. This is a very elegant and lady-like violet+rose scent. I'm cleaning house today because we are having a family get-together here later tonight, I don't look so elegant in my tank top and shorts, but I sure smell that way!

    Notes (from osmoz):
    top note: Bergamot, Violet, Peach, Raspberry
    middle note: Rose, Lily of the Valley, Jasmine, Heliotrope
    base note: Cedar, Sandal, Musk, Amber

    Happy Friday to everyone!

    No Grojsman in the house. I can't play today So I spritzed away with Dior Escale a Portofino. There, I feel better now

    E, I almost reached for Mauboussin today! I'm getting the itch too, haven't worn it in a long time.

    I love Hypnotic Poison, too, Mimi! Just bought it recently, and I always think of Grand Duc too!

    I changed my mind on the Paeonia...trying out a sample of Hermes Kelly Caleche I was given by a great SA at CosBar in the Piers shops Atlantic City. (they carry Bond, Creed, YSL...) WOW SO FAR I LOVE IT!!



    is there any combo more lovely than "Floral-Woody-Musk??" It is very light but very nice.
