    I'm glad it's synchronised Dominique Ropion day because he is one of my favourite perfumers.

    Today I'm in the sublime Carnal Flower.

    CoSTUME NATIONAL HOMME


    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..."

    Ooh - Roberto, that smells nice to me!

    Ropinon must be the nose of the month for me, Ive been doing Accenti, some Anglomania and the favourite of this chilly autumn here - Soir de Lune. So I go for that one today aswell. The other day a coworker actually asked that a meeting should be held in my office, because "it smells so nice there". (Note to self: watch out, dont overapply...)

    Not just a name day, Sophi, it is like celebrating your own personal Patron Saint, the second birthday of sorts. Right? More wisdom to us all from St.Sophia.

    Ropion day.... Hmmmm..... Nothing really to wear or write home about. Not at the moment, although I did have fun with his creations. Used to. Oh well.

    Will wear Shiloh then for a casual Friday.

    Also, please remember Neil Morris' birthday tomorrow.

    Have a lovely Friday, all!

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue.

    I started the day with Mitsouko extrait but I will wear Frederic Malle Geranium Pour Monsieur this evening to tip my hat to a very talented perfumer indeed! He shows such impressive range. Safari was one of my favourites back in the day (though I famously got 'told off' by a sales assistant in a posh department store because 'it's not for blondes').

    I have only two samples of Ropion fragrances to choose from: Carnal Flower (thanks, Mimi!) and Jungle L'Elephant, neither of which I can wear this early in the day, but I will pick one for later this evening. It's a shame that's all I have because, reading through his list of creations, it appears I'm a fan and have worn a few in the past. I'm very much looking forward to trying Acqua di Gioa.

    This morning I'm sampling some vintage Coty L'Aimant flacon mist - which I presume is a cologne formulation. It's not really wearable (for me), but it's fun to sample it at home alone when I can spray without annoying my husband. I can see why people compare it to No. 5. Later, I'll probably wear something suburban and safe as SotD like Pleasures or Pure White Linen to go about my casual Friday.

    TGIF!

    p.s. Best wishes to Sophi! (I want a name day, too!)

    Also, I'm getting on a plane later, so I wanted to keep it as low-key as possible while still wearing a definite scent.

    Happy Second Birthday Sophi!

    I'm having a bit of a Duchaufourfest, with Avignon up front and centre, Dzhongka to the left and Baume Du Doge to the right. The first hour was great, but now they aren't playing well at all. My poor beloved Avignon is quivering under the assault from a bag of wilting vinegary bitter salad on the left and a melted rancid chocolate bar on the right. Hope this cold goes soon!

    Currently wearing Hermes Eau Claire des Merveilles. I 'm writing performance reviews today and have decided that to be at my very best for each one, I'm going to wear a different scent (only on my left wrist) for each review I write. The first review went very well in the company of ECdM, and I'm now changing over to Chanel Cuir de Russie. Not sure what scent No. 3 will be, but thank goodness for decants that travel in my purse!

    Great Friday and weekend wishes to all!

    Evangeline, I used to wear Krazy Krizia. I loved that scent. Also Krizia.

    I tried to join Friday Scent Synch in Kenzo Jungle L'Elephant this evening, but it hit me the wrong way. I remember loving this, but I just can't tolerate now. My tastes are going through a change. I scrubbed it off as best I could, and now I smell like Ponds cold cream, Sea Breeze, a sprtiz of Eau d'Hadrien, and a faint trace of ineradicable L'Elephant - not a bad combination.

    In very good company and in-synch by wearing Ysatis today. My bottle of Ysatis was actually a gift I gave my Mom many, many years ago and she never wore it. I rescued it, wiped off the protective layer of dust it was hiding under and gave it a new home. I rarely wear it and I'm not exactly sure why. It was just beautiful on me today!

    Glad I waited - the topnotes made me think that I'm wearing someone else's perfume. Pretty but "not me". Now, a good hour or so later, it is a much more pleasant floral...

    Will wait until tonight to wear a Ropion scent (will probably be Une Fleur de Cassie)...
