An amazing Friday everyone

The marvelous POUR UN HOMME DE CARON, a perfume for life
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..."

Joining the synchronised friday with Caron's Parfum Sacre. I find it a pleasant, easy-to-wear powdery scent. It becomes more and more present as time passes. I am truly enjoying it, but I don't think I need a bottle of it.
My SOTD is Caron pour un Homme - for Synchronization Friday.
Top notes: Lavender, Rosemary, Bergamot, Lemon
Middle notes: Clary Sage, Rose, Rosewood, Cedarwood
Base notes: Vanilla, Tonka, Moss, Musk

Still Thursday here (just barely), but that's ok, right?
Narcisse Noir for synchronised Caron Day
This poetic frangrance was created in honor of the consecration of the House of Caron. Its originality lies in the orange note added to the flowery, fruity base that includes rose, jasmine, musk, vetiver, and sandalwood, making it sweet and fresh.

Thanks to the discussion on Coco Chanel's birthday yesterday, I am wearing
Top note is aldehyde
Middle notes of jasmine, tuberose, ylang-ylang, and rose.
Base notes include vetiver, vanilla, and incense.
I have a small decant of this perfume which I have worn a couple of times with no success, i.e. I could barely smell it and wondered how much of this stuff you had apply before it made itself known.
There must have been something wrong with my nose - an hour after application this perfume is glorious. It is silky soft, smooth, white, bright, and incensey.
This is exquisite; so beautifully blended and well-behaved that it might be just too prim to suit me altogether, but I'm delighted to discover this beauty from scratch today.
Reformulation without information is fraud. Call the police.
I could have worn a Caron, but Le Dix called to me.
Today: Caron's "Aimez-moi" - strong violet note, nice- in spite of the stupid name of the scent ... "Love me".
I forgot I had planned to wear French Can Can for the synchronised Friday...
Instead, I put on Egoiste in the morning.
I'll wear a Caron later...

Wishlist is pointless.
Glad to be in sync with Caron, love the house! I'm wearing Acaciosa. So lovely -- a radiant pineapple top precedes a beautiful blend of jasminey white florals softened by rose, all coming to rest on a powdery, resinous base.
Enjoy your Friday, all!

Synching with my fellow Duchesses (and Ducs) in Caron, Fleurs De Rocaille. What a hardship :)
Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.
I'm wearing Nuit de Noel by Caron.
Notes include: ylang ylang, tincture of rose, jasmine, sandalwood, oak moss, musk and amber
Happy Friday everyone!
Caron Infini this morning, from a decant sent by a Basenoter. This is one of those classic style fragrances that needs time on skin to become interesting. I definitely smell narcisse in there, which I adore. TGIF!
This is from a vintage bottle. I've read the new formulations are not as nice.
