    Any oriental would do. The sync's name was a play on words by Duc, I took it over unaltered from the previous year's sync list. I don't think we should take "ornery" seriously.

    My first thought was Shalimar as well but then I saw my nearly empty decant of Histoire d'Eau (a nice spicy amber) and went for that instead. I don't love it as much as I used to though.

    Thanks bonsai. I actually thought that "ornery" maybe meant "plain" which didn't seem right somehow. One of the girls will explain when they arrive later. Oh, this one is quite difficult for me, but that is OK! This is not my best genre. Ehm, I have some Shalimar but I am not fond. I don't think that Shalimar Parfum Initial fits the bill. I have some others but I am not in the right mooooood.

    Oh I know, actually YIPEE. I have a sample of Caron Parfum Sacre, perfect!

    You see, "The Friday synch makes you think".

    I'll have to go for an ornery opulent oriental later in the day. It's a little too early for me for that yet.

    LOL! Yes, I had almost forgotten what this smells like!

    There's a saying about Shalimar- "A lady doesn't smoke, dance the tango or wear Shalimar". Being ornery means being a little naughty. So you see, I am ornery by choosing to wear what a lady would not! Rtamara, are you un-ladylike today, too?

    If you look up ornery in the dictionary there is a picture of a clown with a big red nose, says "Foustie" right next to it!

    Today is going to be a good one; can tell already!

    I'm in sync in the remarkably beautiful, softly spicy floriental 8e Jour by Yves Rocher. This is an all-season oriental, and it's actually wonderful in warm weather! Although I do think it's quite opulent and includes some rather dense sorts of notes, it's somehow sheer enough to never be too rich, and it would never dream of being cloying.

    I can't find any info about the perfumer, but 8e Jour was released in 1993 and has notes of iris, ylang-ylang, rose, jasmine, honey, myrrh, vanilla, cinnamon and sandalwood ...and artistry. I really think this is a little masterpiece. ♥

    And a lovely abstraction it is! Of course you aren't really the definition of ornery; you're too sweet and kind for that!

    I'm now daubed in various sandalwood oils. I think it still counts as opulent and possibly oriental. I have a bit of mitti on too, that can be the oriental. Maybe I need spice. Saffron... (back she goes into the oil cupboard)

    Foustie- You are an absolute HOOT!!! Your American cousin here will venture to explain, it means:
    stubborn i.e. You are watching an old B&W western scene where John Wayne asks Slim Pickens what is holding up the wagon train. he answers "This 'ole ornery mule won't budge"

    That's the most common vernacular use I think LOL

    In addition to stubborn, "ornery" also means cranky and contrary. I doubt we've seen your truly ornery side yet, foustie ...but I'd bet it's interesting!

    I'm in Coco for the evening. This is my favorite, the one, the opulent oriental, the bee's knees, the shizzle. I adore it, I was married in it, I need it. Y'all have a fantastic evening! XOXO

    I wore Aqaba for my opulent ornery oriental. It's opulent, but not ornery - at least it behaves very well for me. It is so lovely it transports me. Many orientals tend to wear me but this one wraps itself around me like a very cozy - but plush - wrap.

    Ooooo.... Dior Day.... More choices choice,Poison? Esprit de Parfum? Vintage 80s EDT? 90s EDT? Contemporary? Or Hypnotic?
    Could this be the day to take the 80s Miss Dior out for a spin? Or the 80s Dioressence found when "mucking out" my cupboards. Diorella? Would have to be contemporary as the vintage is still in the post. Dune? One of my favourites. Diorissimo? Could give the vintage sample sent by a kind BN friend out for a full wearing. Then there's the J'Adore Absolute sample.

    HELP! need to put this to the vote
