    Friday's almost over here in Oz. It's 5:30pm, so to those of you almost in Yesterday, have a good day.

    I'm trialling Guerlain Terracotta Voile. Mixed feelings. Rather an odd beginning. Actually rather odd, full stop. Not sure it was worthy of buying a little bottle of.

    Notes are: Bergamot, Mint Jasmine, White Lily,Rose, Ylang ylang Carnation, Iris, heliotrope, vanilla, pear

    This one's going to take some time to 'get'.

    Morning all. In synch with Balenciaga Paris (Olivier Polge). Will no doubt change to one of his illustrious dad's frags a bit later.

    Alright, Twolf, it goes like this...
    Monsieur gets up, refreshes himself in the bathroom, sprays liberally like 15 times his upper body with Mouchoir de Monsieur, while staff has prepared breakfast outside in the patio. Monsieur in a cloud of fragrant sophistication finally arrives to be handfed with fresh fruit of all kinds, while Monsieur is typing this.

    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”

    This is a true classic and still one of my best-loved scents.

    Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur. I have never been able to detect a drop of musk -- I am anosmic to some -- but it's a beast oriental and plenty sessy as is.

    Have a lovely Friday, all!

    Not in synch but happy Friday smell of Jailia - again - great summer smell and very good for a 'jeans day at work' scent IMO.

    Now that I have checked on the Synch Friday, I will be wearing Cristalle.

    I have been testing Pour Monsieur Concentree, which I believe is by J. Polge, and it is terrific. Gandhajala, are you wearing the newer stuff or the original Pour Monsieur? Can you compare? I have not yet found any of the non-concentree to try.

    Good morning!

    Well it's the start of the Memorial Day weekend and our forecast isn't cooporating at all. There is rain predicted all 4 days. (Sorry Jon )

    It's Jacques and Olivier Polge sync day, there's so many wonderful scents to pick from. It took me half an hour to figure out which one to wear or if I should go with some Profumi del Forti samples that are calling my name. Finally settled on a classic I haven't worn for awhile, so today I'm scent twins with Kewart in the beautiful Rive Gauche.

    Top note: Aldehydes, Bergamot, Lemon, Leafy Green
    Middle note: Rose, Jasmine, Gardenia, Honeysuckle
    Base note: Vetiver, Tonka, Sandal, Oakmoss (according to Osmoz)




    Have a great holiday weekend!

    Well Happy vacation Inees! And I'm sure you did better than you think, I never walked out of an exam without imagining a worse case scenario. Snow? Well enjoy your summer holiday.

    Congrats to 30 Roses and daughter.

    Today I'm starting out with vintage Oscar parfum. If it gets too hot again I'll go back to something green

    Thanks, ladies! She was pretty jazzed up about getting the Drama and World Languages awards -- but today she has moved on already and is watching TV!

    I don't know about scent today-- I'm sneezing and honking with this cold. Might be a good day to just chill and read my book.

    Have a lovely Friday, everyone!

    Synching today with Jacques Polge's Coco. No-brainer for me today. Been several days since I've been back with my good friend. She is so nice and lovely.

    Hope everyone has a terrific Friday.

    Good morning all.

    30 Roses, that sounds particularly nice given the vindication.

    In sync today with Bel Respiro (Jacques Polge). I applied generously but I hope not too much so - somehow, even fresh, I can barely smell it. I have some more Exclusifs on the way, but so far I find all of them fairly light.

    I don't think I could play the fragrance - prescribing game. For one thing all my samples are in the wardrobe and I don't know where most of them are. But for another the mood has to strike me to wear something. I don't even participate in as many synchronized Fridays as I could, although I like the idea.

    Perhaps if I ever edit my collection down to scents that I love... but then my tastes are fickle. I almost disposed of my decant of Chamade the first time I tried it. But I decided it deserved another try, and last time I lifted the lid to sniff it appealed. Oh well. Since I have so much choice, choose I will.
