    Hi, bunch!
    I'm a sad sicko again, and was yesterday too. But I was in sync, just could not get to the computer to post it.
    I wore Frapin 1697 and 1000 Lilies by DSH!

    I was in synch with Six scents Series 1, number two. It was a sample I still had lying around, and I have to say I found it as horrid the second time as the first: Cold...and just plain unpleasant. It is supposed to smell like "pure air". It does smell "airy", but in a veyr chemical way. Like the inside of a cool pack would smell in my imagination. Next synch please!

    I was in synch with No. 5 Eau Première earlier in the day, and No. 19 Poudré later. Those were both no-brainers for me. There aren't many Chanels lately that I can't wear easily. I had a few other things with numbers to try, especially 525, a masculine fragrance by Bourbon French that I still want to sample; and No. 88 by Czech & Speake, but I never got around to those.

    Our next synch is Travel Theme #2 - Latin America. I'll be giving it some thought.

    Thanks for all the great scent synch friday ideas! ♥

    Oops, forgot to add that I could have worn Shalimar (I mean No.90) for this last sync!

    No idea what to wear for this week's sync, though- I'm stumped.

    I'm stumped too. Other than chocolate gourmands might fit the bill. Bitter cacao in Angel Taste of Fragrance might fit the bill. Or Chocolat Amere from a sample from a dear Basenotes friend

    Yes, I think we're going to have to get creative. I'm thinking Habanita. IF I'm in the mood to wear that.

    Maybe Maja by Myrurgia or Torero (but I haven't a clue who made mine. I have a matching Corina)
    There is a Vierges et Toreros by Etat Libre but I don't have that

    Deferring to a 1927 Time article about Mexican Banditry, Bandit may be the only scent in my wardrobe that holds a link for this friday's synch. I do feel a Bandit mood coming on....
    I also like Aliytke's idea of chocolate gourmand scents...creative!
    Or how about scents with a coffee note?

    Coffee note would be good-

    Anything with Tango theme would be good- suntanny beach scents would work as well.

    I love all your creative "Latin America" sync ideas. I was also really stuck on this one. The solution came in quite a funny way: I spritzed this morning Havana Vanille on and inspired by it I was looking for reviews. The first I stumbled accross was from NTS: "Havana Vanille is the latest fragrance to join the travel series at L’Artisan Parfumeur. It follows Bois Farine, Timbuktu, Dzongkha and Fleur de Liane — not bad company, as these things go. This time, we’re off to Cuba:

    From its vibrant Salsa rhythms, its famous cigars and Cuban rum, it is certain there is something magical about Havana."

    How come I did not think of it by myself that Havana Vanilla would be a perfect fit for Friday's sync? I need more sleep...

    I love the ideas of Habanita and Bandit as well (thank you!), so all of a sudden I have three scents to choose from. Great!

    I had to really dig deep in my samplebag to get ideas for this synch...For now I'm thinking that Fragipani by OJ and Amour de cacao would qualify as Latin American themed scents

    I thought that I was stumped too! Then I remembered that I had a sample of Czech and Speake Cuba. Ha! Then even better, I got a little goodie bag from a BN friend, and in it, as a surprise, was a little Habanita. Perfect timing, so go on lilibelle and I will join you!

    Ok, Foustie, Habanita it is.

    One of those Escada Rockin' Rio scents would have worked, but I don't have one. I've never sniffed any of those, actually. I like the idea of suntan lotion/tropical beachy scents. That extends my choices a bit, as would anything with tuberose.

    Suggestion: How about the theme "A scent that makes you feel sexy" Is that too simple?

    I still don't know.
    I was thinking about Narcisso Rodriguez, but I don't have anything of him that I like... and also Amazone (I know, it's a different one, but what the heck?) -- I don't have that either.
    Might have to go with tropical theme!

    I'm thinking possibly Havana Vanille or Carolina Herrera (I believe she was born in Venezuela). The bottom of my Prada bottle says "Made in Spain" but the scent just doesn't say "Latin America" to me so I think that one is out of the running. More than likely I'll go with Havana Vanille or Pacifica Mexican Cocoa.

    Carlos Santana for Women or one of my Myrurgia Classics—Nueva Maja or vintage Maja. Thinking, thinking. On the horizon, or, more accurately, in the mail is yet another Myrurgia: vintage Maderas de Orient. Wasn't looking for it, but stumbled across a picture on ebaby and realized I had owned that frag in my college years (1970s), totally forgot about it. What I bought is "Locion", back in the day I had the EDT

    Habanita parfum fits the bill for me. Actually didn't think I had one for today until I read this thread mid week and it was of course Habanita!

    I went one step further from the Havana Vanille idea and put on TF Tobacco Vanille from a sample. I love the tobacco leaves and the vanilla in it, but I wish they had used much less honey, it's verging on being cloying.

    I've been wondering... I think this.. it's a bit of a long shot though.....

    Narciso Rodriguez for her

    According to Wiki:-
    Narciso Rodriguez III is an American fashion designer. Rodriguez is the first child and only son of Cuban parents Narciso Rodríguez II, a longshoreman, and Rawedia María Rodríguez who are of Canarian descent.

    Will I count?

    edit... (oops sorry Warum, you've already said this) and yes.... very stinky.... no likey much

    Wearing my SH Coconut Milk sample. This is very nice and I really don't care for coconut. Very natural smelling, no whopping white florals (which I normally can't do), really smells the way it sounds. My dad once tricked me into drinking coconut milk right from the shell, telling me it was the best tasting thing ever. It is not- it is very bitter and there is definitely some of that bitterness in this scent. Here, instead of making me choke, that bitterness lends interest and takes this slightly out of the realm of "suntan floral".

    This certainly is beachy, though; making me crave sun, sand & warmth. Where's my cabana boy with my umbrella topped cocktail?
