    Oh, wow, so tomorrow is Dior day? I must do this then, I will do vintage Diorissimo. I wish the weather was a bit warmer but regardless I do love my vintage Diorissimo so much... what fun!

    I have a few Diors but tomorrow will be a good excuse to wear Hypnotic Poison Elixir - not that I really need an excuse...

    Did you see the vintage 30ml Diorama extrait on the bay which went for over 500 quid? Would like to try that! The juice was the colour of whisky

    Oh I really crave vintage Poison for tomorrow! But I have a long day of talks (enclosed spaces) and performances (respect for cast members essential)... I've been very into my Dune lately too, so maybe it'll be that lady of sand and skank for me again

    Have fun all, and happy Dior Friday!!!

    Funny, these were my exact thoughts before this sync. Though I knew it quite well in advance that I AM going to chicken out on Hypnotic Poison. I wanted to smell my Dior Homme sample yesterday evening and guess what - it broke between my fingers! So I ended up wearing Escale a Portofino from a sample - I still don't like it, it's a fairly boring citrus with an artificial edge. Should have gone for Diorella.

    Aw, come on! You too Bonsai. I will enjoy having an excuse to wear Hypnotic Poison. This was one of my Friday synch surprises. I had been given a wee mini but I wasn't really of a mind to wear it, then I dug it out for the previous Poison synch, and I discovered that it is gorgeous, almondy woody, with great longevity and a lovely trail.

    good morning all. hypnotic poison is my all time favorite out of all from the poison line. although i don't have any. so i figured since it's Dior i'll be wearing my Fahrenheit 32 today.

    I don't have any Poisons (except the internal liver medicine kind). I tried the ordinary Poison donkeys years ago in about 1980 before i knew much about perfume and remembering it smelling just like poison on me so have never smelled it again. From the murky depths, it may have had a black bottle and a purple box. I may have to have a sniff again and see next time I come upon any.

    I think I'm going to Dune it. Have a happy Dior everyone.

    Hey y'all -

    I have a few Poisons, but I've got to be in the right mood for them. I'm in vintage-60s Miss Dior edt instead - this is less moody.

    Eau Sauvage for me this morning. I don't have any Poisons except for a decant of Midnight Poison, and that one isn't for me.

    Well, we're both in synch then.

    No Poison here, either. Already sent off the MP sample I used last time we had Poison day. Only Dior in the house is Mr.PL's Fahrenheit, which I like to wear occasionally but isn't calling me today. If I could choose any Dior, it would be Diorella. Need to grab some one of these days.

    So, I'm out of sync for the first time this year. What a bummer! Party on without me, gang!

    I am staying green with Dioressence. I am just not a Poison person. I can't take the intense sugar high there. Luckily, I have an old atomizer from the 70's, I think. It has an intense oakmoss/ambergris base that is to die for. Hurray for chloro-flouro carbons!

    For me, it has to be Miss Dior. This is much like my beloved Vol de Nuit. (Not in the mood for the very gourmand Addict.)

    I am peeved at Dior renaming this.

    I have a Poisonless collection. I think I've posted before that I still have an aversion to original Poson it because all the local rich be-atches overwore this in its heydey. C'est la vie. The genius of the Dior line is that there is something for everyone.

    Diorissimo vintage EDT it is!

    Just in time! As in late afternoon mail held an ebay purchase whose seller was merciful quick in sending. I am no longer a Dior virgin, and what did I lose it to?—none other than vintage Miss Dior EDT. Cumin-soaked skank, by all means; this is Miss Balmain with a few drinks in her. Marvelous.

    jujy - you get cumin in Miss Dior?? Egads - that's the ultimate kiss of death for me. I thought I'd be able to catch it no matter how well-hidden it is, so I suppose I should feel relieved I've never detected it. I'd have to give it away!

    Scent from another Bner's wardrobe tomorrow. Since you're directly before me in this thread Evangeline I'm going with you. Will choose one of your 5* frags - perhaps Dune or Angel Liqueur de Parfum. Dune has the edge I think, haven't worn that for a long while.

    OK devicat. I will "do" you then! Actually I thought that it would be a fragrance actually from another basenoters wardrobe, you know, decanted from it ?! I had some options and ideas too, but I guess that we would have had to do a lot more planning with that though. Anyway, I am more than happy to be going with this way, and I am more thatn lucky to be after you devilcat because lets face it there is so much choice!! We do share a couple, so I am going to go with Tauers L'Air because I haven't worn it for a while.

    See you tomorrow.

    Hi Foustie, i shall join in the chain and have a rummage in yours.... do excuse me a moment... this won't hurt and i'll be very gentle.... hang on.......

    I won't be long... it's nice in here....

    Can I come to your house?

    Not many crossovers, I can do Aromatics Elixir, Bvalgari Black, Coco, no 5, Shalimar and if I have the samples I may be able to do Tauer l'air du desert marocain but I may not have that one and be getting muddled with another, same with Mure et Musc extreme.

    Thank you for the pleasure dear. It felt like being a cat burgler a bit.... stealing your niffs at night....

    I wanted to use Twolf's wardrobe, having relied on her nose and power of description, but we have none in common amongst her current collection which is truly a "short list" in the best sense.
    [Note to self: Coriandre!] Seeing as other are using the wardrobe of preceding poster, I'm raiding Perfumed Lady, specifically Champs Elysées, perfect for the springy weather we're having in CLeveland.

    I find this a fun sync! I had several scents from most of your collections, I have written them all down and then let my mood guide me this morning. The result: Violet Blonde from gabinstyle's wardrobe.

    From Bonsais wardrobe I only have Bvlgari - Au thé Rouge. It will be well worth it trying it out again - I used to absolutely love this until I started exploring more niche scents and got bored with it. My husband adores it, though. He will be very happy. I wonder how it will strike me now...

    EDIT: It is actually quite pleasant, although I would definitely see it as a "beginner's" scent. It is a little more interesting than your run-of-the-mill department store stuff, but it is definitely not a masterpiece or anything like that. It's a tad too sugery for me these days.
