    Great job LGD! Exciting and wonderful smelling Fridays ahead for the intrepid sync-ers.
    Being a yankee, you threw me for a moment with using European style dating (7/1/11 means July 1st to me) But my little grey cells kicked in and I now feel so very continental with the European format.

    I'd definitely like an 'Andy Tauer' day and maybe a 'Natural Perfume' day.

    Thank you, Duckie! What a great list of fun syncs, I love them!

    From between 1931 and 1940 I have Tabu, Vol de Nuit, Je Reviens, R&G Blue Carnation/Oillet Bleu and Angelique Encens. If the weather stays this cold than it will most likely be Angelique Encens (or Tabu if I feel brave enough in the morning).

    I agree. Instead, we could maybe make a group of niche houses, say niche houses named after their founder and/or nose. Some to include would be A. Tauer, Ormonde Jayne, M. Micallef, Montale, Serge Lutens, Frederic Malle, Annick Goutal, P. de Nicolai, Neil Morris, Tom Ford, Killian, Xerjoff, and all the others which I can't remember at the moment.

    Hmmm... What would count as an "old lady" scent? Mitsouko? Bal a Versailles? Vol de Nuit? L'Heure Bleu? Chanel no. 5?

    I don't find any of them "old lady" so I have some problem choosing. Help...
    What will be your choice for tomorrow's sync (maybe I can steal some ideas from you...)?

    Whatever you think is an old lady's scent!
    All your choises would work.

    I'm thinking about wearing Ysatis. I once wore
    that one when I worked in a kindergarden, untill
    one of the kids said; 'It smells like my grandma
    here!'
    Oops!

    Default Re: The Synchronized Fridays Anno 2011

    Yes, I think 'old lady scent' is open to interpretation. For me it means soapy, powdery or with violets! I think I'll go with Ma Griffe. There's a great review of it on basenotes from sucresurlaneige where she likens the opening to being knocked around by a flock of powder-puff wielding old ladies!

    I'll be wearing the last few drops in my sample of Gratitude by Zorica of Malibu because their entire marketing strategy seems devoted to the claim that 'women smelling of grapefruit are percieved by men as ten years younger' so I think their target market is, by definition, old ladies. It makes me feel like I'm wearing lemon frosting when I smell it, it's quite nice. Haven't had anyone accuse me of seeming ten years younger just because I smell like graprfruit though.

    I agree with the powder and violets as 'old lady' but I'm thinking that the odd musty topnotes in Cinnabar parfum seem old lady too .

    I still remember the time I got my vintage Mitsouko parfum bottle and I was all excited like a little kid. I told Ray about it, the history of the scent, the critical reviews of the scent, the rarity of the parfum I'd gotten, etc. I took my time opening the presentation box, carefully removing the parfum bottle from the purple, velvety notch, carefully opening up the ground glass stopper. I put some on my wrist, just a drop and inhaled. Beautiful!! I reached over and put my wrist under Ray's nose and the first thing he said was, 'Smells like an old lady'. I kid you not.

    So, that's what I'll be wearing tomorrow. Vintage Mitsouko extrait. Old ladies unite and take over!

    The only 1940s one I have is L'Air du Temps. Which is cool. I like.

    That's a cute story, Mike!

    I have a few possibilities for the 1940s decade - L'Air du Temps, Evyan White Shoulders, Miss Dior (if I can pry the metal band off the sprayer), Fracas, Vent Vert, even Chantilly though my version is Dana's, which just doesn't seem right. I don't know what I'll be in the mood for.

    Lessa, you are hilarious!

    I only have three frags for the upcoming synch:

    - Miss Dior (1947)
    - Fracas (1948)
    - L'Air du Temps (1948)

    ... since I wore L'AdT some days ago, I'll wear
    the other two this Friday.

    Glad I didn't wear Ma Griffe for 'old lady' synch, since I can wear that this week. Or L'Air du Temps, or Fracas, if I can locate the sample ... That's it for me.

    Duc - belated congratulations on reaching 5000 posts!

    My 80's powerhouse for Friday will be Opium. I like sniffing it from the bottle but I have never actually worn it - I'm curious...

    Opium was actually launched in 1977, but it was worn a lot during the 80's and it's certainly a powerhouse... I might join you!

    Madame du Barry- great minds think alike! Poison will be perfect for my shopping trip tomorrow.

    I never know in advance which fragrance I'll feel like wearing. I have a few contenders - Fendi, Antaeus, Coco, Obsession. I don't have Poison, though I reeeally wish I did.

    Perhaps an original Poison scent synch Friday would be a good one.

    Looking at the 1980s list generated from the directory I realise I had quite a few of them back in the 80s - Fleur de Fleurs, Samsara, Ysatis, Vanderbilt (as well as Yardley Lace and Le Jardin - anyone else remember the ad with Jane Seymour in a floaty dress wafting around an English country garden....?). Now sadly all gone. Will choose from Diva, LouLou, Obsession or Paloma Picasso. Anais Anais could also be a contender, if we can go with what was popular in the 80s, though not a powerhouse!

    The 13th of May we have a 'Your Fave Poison'-synch.

    I think I'll be in Obsession, vintage parfum, this Friday.

    I have many 80's powerhouse's I've acquired since joining Basenotes but for sync I'm going to wear something no one ever mentions here. Vallee des Rois (1988) A floral oriental with heart notes reminiscent of Chergui (although this came first). When my bottle ran out I went bonkers finding a replacement and vowed never to be "scent-ogamous" again. But I have to pay tribute to her on such a sync day as the titan she is.

    Ducky, your highness (curtsy)- I'm really looking forward to Five star Frags from the GUIDE this Friday. How about on one of our open days we do a "Your favorite frag slammed by the GUIDE" Sync? Then we'll have both the pics and the pans of Mr Turin. It would be fun, as not everyone agrees with his ratings. Whaddaya think?
