    I am trying an unknown perfume. I have seen the bottle before but I can't remember what it was.The cap has two protuberances shapped like irregular circles. To me they look just like Shrek's ears. Anyone knows what I am talking about? By the smell it's something from the late 80's.

    Good morning everyone!

    Although I usually don't associate animalic notes with skank as much as velvety and warm kitty fur, I actually understand why this is considered a bit dirty and usually save it for evening....but naturally, I've made an exception for le Duc's Skankfest Friday. I'm in Femme de Rochas, vintage pdt.

    I couldn't start my day in something skanky, as I had an important meeting at work today...so I'll have to join all you later.

    For now it's:

    Dang, dang, DANG! I knew I should have listened up this week, what a perfect opportunity to slay my coworkers with three sprays o' Tabu! Well, that'll come later, you can count on it. Besides, today feels more like an Alien day.

    Twolf, your spry make me laugh!

    I'm in Penhaligon's Bluebell today but not on skin, where it quickly turns to clove on me. I have it on my new aromatherapy locket/cage type pendant, where it is wafting up a delicious hyacinth smell. I may buy a bottle.

    In fact, today hubby and I are headed to the Yale Center for British art which sells a number (not all) of the Penhaligon's fragrances at their gift shop. Because so many BNers have not had the chance to smell Penhaligon's fragrances, I'm going to ask the SA if they wouldn't mind giving me a number of samples for the purpose of doing another pass-around of samples. Wish me luck!

    Looks like I'm not the only man joining in... my SOTD is the stinkiest fragrance I own, Giorgio Beverly Hills for Men.

    I accidentally overapplied, and I already got a funny complaint (that's complaint, not compliment) from a family member: "The whole house stinks... You smell like you're going to Walmart!" The funny thing is that I was going to go to Walmart shortly to pick up a couple of things, and I appreciated that "complimaint" on this extra-stinky SSD.

    I forgot to check what the theme for today was. I'm wearing Adrienne Vittadini, has some musk, but by no means skanky.

    Laughing... I was inspired to go to peopleofwalmart dot com, to find just the right photo to post, but really, they're priceless and I couldn't pick just one. So I'm encouraging anyone who has the time and the inclination to check it out themselves. Kind of goes with the skanky theme... :-) (ahhh, yes, proud to be an American...)

    Well, my wardrobe is short on skank! (I've got some L'air Derriere -- forget which basenoter I'm quoting here -- but am not in the mood for it this warm day) So I'll look at this thread carefully for inspiration, and make a list of must-samples, so I'll be ready next time. Or, I may just not be WOMAN enough... I have an old Tabu around here somewhere. It frightened me the first time I opened it, and the trauma is too fresh to try it again.

    Think I'll head in an entirely different direction, as I've been trending to iris this week -- Iris 39 for me today!

    Have a lovely FRIDAY all!!

    Phoey on that, CRose. Having met you in SF, you are definately woman enough- you're just in need of a classier skank 'fume.

    I have been under the weather since yesterday morning with a stomach flu. I do not feel like an application of anything- much less skank- so I will miss this synchro day. I might have worn my adored Jicky EDT (actually,the only version I own) or Paco Rabanne La Nuit (which I have but haven't thoroughly tested) Oh well, another day.

    It's Friday again!
    I clean forgot! And it's such a brilliant theme today!
    I am testing En Passant today, Fredrick Malle, but in a few hours it will be Dana TABU!!!
    Brilliant, I haven't dared to try my vintage bottle yet. Brought it on E-bay and had it send to the bf who is an olfactory challenge. But he will have to lump it today!
    Excellent excuse to put a few dabs behind the earlobes tonight!

    The manager at the gift shop of the Yale Center for British Art was very interested in helping us out in sampling Penhaligon's and gave me a large number of samples to send around in sampling groups. I've just gotten home and have not yet sorted through the bag, but as soon as I eat lunch I'll have a good look through the bag and post to start new sampling groups.

    30 Roses, that is great! Smart manager, too.
    I just had the opportunity to sniff the complete Penhaligon line last weekend and was very impressed. Your generosity and organizational skills will definately benefit Basenoters who are not near major retail centers.

    I unintentionally ended up smelling very skanky today... had forgotten about the synchronized Friday and put on Samsara. Then, I opened a new can of hairspray (herbal essences with a "citrus sunset" scent) and ended up smelling like I'd slept a) in my car, too close to the fruit-shaped hang air freshener < no I don't use one > or b) in a head shop where the cheap incense rack fell over on me during the night. The resulting cacophany of skank was... from the dirty fake vanilla, what might be synthetic sandalwood, and quasi-citrus in the hairspray combined with the jasmine, iris, sandalwood, amber and vanilla in Samsara. Yikes and LOL!

    I think I might add to the effect (I actually got so self-conscious I wet-brushed part of the hairspray out early on in the day) by dipping into my little MKK decant. Since I'm by myself at home this afternoon, that sounds like a grand, skank-filled plan!

    For the skankfest I dug out two samples I kept but was afraid to return to (a prize for bravery please!). One of them was La Rose de Rosine and I am surprised that I found this one skanky when I tried it before. I bet it just mixed with some other scent, a lotion most likely, to create an effect. I don't find it skanky right now, a wonderful grown-up rose. The other one was Bal A Versailles vintage edc. Um, this one fits the bill, I'm sure, especially on my musky skin, but I am certainly much less skank-timid then I used to be when I started onto a perfumista's roses strewn path, so to speak

    Now I wish I had two other samples that I found so unwashed that I gave them away -- Shalimar and Ambre Sultan. I'll try to get them in time for the next skankfest... to find out they're not skanky at all, I guess!

    OOPS... we were supposed to wear the skankiest one we own? A FB, that is? none of my FB can be described as skanky, I don't think, so excuse me if I did wrong -- I did what I could!..

Deep and rich, spicy and sweet. The warm, rounded leather really stands out. It will be interesting to see how it develops. It's certainly not my style, but I'm admiring it!

    I'm reading this thread with a big smile on my face. If anyone walks by, they will wonder what is so funny! You all are a riot!

    I totally forgot about Skankfest! Dang! This morning, I dabbed on a bit of my sample of MFK Absolue Pour le Matin. Pretty, but definitely no skank there. Fortunately (or not), it has very little staying power (almost gone & it's only been about 3 hours)...so maybe I will bust out my reserves of Bal a Versailles! Yeah!

    When we figure out how to best handle these I'll post on ladies and men's boards to set up the groups.

    Got a story for you. Mr.T. (here we go again, he does not know much about fragrances despite my futile efforts) said a few years ago when I was wearing La Nuit: "Is is Kenzo Elephant?" First I was smitten that he knows that these two words go together and the whole concept of "Kenzo Elephant" and then replied: "No, it is Paco Rabanne, why?" He answered: "Because it smells like an elephant, I remember this scent from when I was with the circus" (which was over 30 years ago and neither fragrance existed yet). So, La Nuit is mighty strong, I s'pose.

    I love La Nuit! So glad to see someone wearing it today. That's funny about your hubby calling it Elephant. Didn't Turin or someone call it "Tabu on a horse?" Maybe close

    I love that... Tabu on a horse. Haven't smelled Tabu since my mom or grandmother wore it way back when. (wondering if they knew...???)

    Note about my skankfest-inducing hairspray: It contains "white nectarine" and "pink coral flower" essences (allegedly natural, prunus persica nectarina fruit extracts and rusella equisetiformis flower/leaf/stem extract) along with "fragrance"... hmm. "Fragrance"... (no doubt, "fragrance" is in there, LOL. I guess that's the "Citrus" and "Sunset", that "fragrance.") Smells ever so slightly nectarine-ish in the bottle but once that genie's out, watch out! What it lacks in subtlety and blending it makes up for in massive sillage and longevity. (I guess the trend is to perfume all personal care products as heavily as possible so we don't "need" anything else?) Anyway. I'm taking it back to the store as it is deadly mixed with any other scent at all.
