    I am joining Kewart and jujy in the "Promise her anything but give her Arpege" love fest. I was looking for my bottle of Bellodgia, was tempted by Via Lanvin, but then found an onopened boxed set called "Les Romantiques D'ARpege" I got on evil bay.
    1 oz Eau D'Arpege, .25 parfum. Original price tag still on the box- Osco $6.00.

    I'm wearing vintage Derby for today's synch. I might be cheating a wee bit Derby was actually introduced in 1985, which means IF my decant was from one of the early bottles, it would count. But it probably wasn't ... but I don't care. I LOVE Derby and this was a perfect opportunity to wear it.
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Random sample grab! OK going to do it just now. My samples are organised in boxes but the themes are loose. I am going to a box which mostly contains purchased samples from Les Sentuers, some really just for reference, and which has stuff collected over several years. I won't look.............................................. ................................OK, I'm back. Tauer Pentachord White has been grabbed! So that is my SOTD today.

    PS This is good, I have stuff like Yatagan in there, but if it had been picked it would have to have been worn. Respect to the synch!

    Amouage Homage.

    So it's an obscene field of roses for me today. I'm skeptical of overly decadent perfumes, but maybe I'll fall in love with Homage throughout the day.

    Been meaning to test the 30 perfumes I bought since I was 16 (all mainstream fruity florals) to decide whether I'm keeping them or selling them (almost all are 90% full). Grabbed 4 today, and must add that I'm disappointed in my past self's taste (or lack of it).


    So for today's sync I'm wearing Vera Wang EdP, J'adore L'absolu, Chloe EdP (giving this away free on the Free to a good home thread), and Salvatore Ferragamo Attimo. I'm not going anywhere so it's ok... :P
    Perfume appeals to my nose the way music appeals to my ears, exquisite food to my taste buds, photography to my eyes, and great loving from my man to my sense of touch.

    I can safely conclude, then, that PERFUME IS ART in its purest form.

    As an artist, I therefore have a responsibility to buy as much perfume as I can. You know, to learn about art and all.

    Oh, ick. I grabbed EldO's Vraie Blonde. Already knew I didn't like this, second wearing is not changing my mind. Supposedly an aldehyde scent but here we go again- just because a perfume contains aldehydes does NOT make it an aldehydic. There is no sparkle on me, just heavy, sticky sweetness. I may as well be wearing pie filling. Want to find an EldO to love; this ain't it!

    That's so funny, PerfumedLady, about wearing pie filling, lol.

    Random sample is Diptyque Ofresia, which is nice, but maybe a tad boring. Notes are white freesia and black pepper. It's very pleasant, light and fresh floral.

    Interestingly opposite ends of the fragrance spectrum. One sweet, vanillic edible. One dry, tarry astringent

    Semi-syncing. I just had the wardrobe genie pick a random scent for me because most of my samples are at work these days.

    From Ineke's Alphabet series Chemical Bonding

    Chemical Bonding is sparkling citrus combined with powdery softness of floral and musky notes.
    top= citrus, blackberry and tea
    heart= peony
    base= vetiver, amber and musks.

    It's refreshing like an traditional EDC but the base is slightly powdery and make it last more than the 20-30 minutes of a traditional EDC.

    MMm, I didn't care for the Chemical Bonding much, seemed like I got a note of orange Pledge or something on top.

    I scrubbed the Montale and put on An Evening Edged In Gold.....much better.

    Funny how many of us drew random samples that we didn't like and knew we didn't like!

    Blind test result: I got rid of the greasy, overbearing, simply not for my skin type Homage within forty minutes in favor of the new Habanita edp. Probably heresy, but the latter was so much better. I hate orange and dislike oud and put them together= hate-dislike dizzyspell. None of the feminine Amouages I've tried work for me. As a beginner I may not quite be up to them yet, but they're too heavy, like a canvas soaked through with gold paint.

    Oh, I love freesias! I've read that Ofresia captures the beauty of the real scent better than many freesia perfumes... what do you think?

    Our internet was being dodgy so I didn't post. I had also picked out Montale and thought very little of it. It didn't actually say what it was, just says Montale Paris. Smells like a lavender loo freshener to me with a touch of bubble gum like the round pink sticky hubbaloos we used to have as kids. Do you remember blowing such huge bubbles that they popped and stuck over the whole of your face? I just couldn't get away from that idea once it was stuck in my head. It then turned into an amberish lavender sweetie guest soap.

    What is it meant to be? I shall have to look it up.

    Morning Donna!

    Well I do do Citrus Colognes. Love 'em. Isn't it great how diverse we are?

    But actually my favourite refreshing fragrance was probably Heeley's Sel Marin and I just swapped what I had left of it with a good friend (in the knowledge that I will buy another one). It is like being caught by sea spray and ozone. So, today I will go to one of my old loves, Santa Maria Novella Acqua di Sicilia, a straight up citrus cologne of the very best kind. Lovely.

    Synching up in my most refreshing scent, not summery or anything since I'm averse to major citrus and other freshies:
    Shiseido Energizing Fragrance for a too-early morning in which I really need that Energizing thing to happen. Trying it for the first time today.



    top: carnation, green petals, clove, black pepper
    middle:iris, jasmine, heliotrope, lily-of-the-valley, star anise, rose
    base: sheer woods and white musk

    Shiseido's minimalist marketing and simple ingredients make their scents seem tame--almost like simple hygiene products or, with this title, aromatherapy. This one is actually quite intriguing, sexy, and complex. Refreshing like a sauna followed by a dip in a cool pond more than like a blast of cold air.

    Sigh, are we doomed to be free ad generators up in here? I do really like it though! Unexpected.

    Yes, last week made me stink! But to those who have never tried Vraie Blond, don't listen to me back there. It is a very wearable EldO, just isn't my taste.

    This week I'm neither stinking nor thinking. I'm in my easy, crisp Cristalle EDT. Citrus is great in summer but it's really greens that have the most cooling effect for me. Cristalle has the best of both. Plus, those beautiful hyacinths that make me think of an emerald green shady glade with little blooms popping up here and there. Cools my brain as well as my body!

    Might ramp up the coconut with Zara Coco Romance which is perfumery Bounty Bar with about a 3 minute life span

    Tropical islands - trying to resist just slapping on Beyond Paradise or something with a prominent coconut note and thinking about heat, fruit, Robinson Crusoe, Mutiny on the Bounty, Gauguin paintings, exotic diseases ...

    Pomegranate Noir by Jo Malone. According to the directory this has notes of raspberry, plum, pink pepper, pomegranate, patchouli, frankincense, spicy woods - perfect combination of light and dark.

    Me neither Donna. Wouldn't you think that living in a miserable cold Northern place like I do would mean that I would appreciate a tropical fragrance, but alas, no. It seems that I like miserable cold fragrances too! Aha! But all is not lost for I have a sample of Bahiana. Not a tropical Island I know. In fact I believe that it was inspired by Brazil? But it is a lovely tropical cocktail of a thing so that will do nicely.

    Make that 3 of us! I'm just not a tropical flower kind of gal, that's about the last genre of scent I'd like to wear. Tropical islands have simply never called to me, so am unfamiliar with other scents of the isles. We have lots of cold, damp greyness here, too Foustie, in winter at least. Guess we are "misery loves company" types with our perfumes!

    So, as close as I can get to anything tropical- vanilla. L'Artisan's Vanilia for me today. It is a very summery vanilla. I'm saying it counts!

    Bahiana is nice indeed, Foustie.
    Well count me in the non-tropical folks- that genre always denotes big sweet cloying white flowers and greasy suntan lotion. I just don't relate to heavy scents in the heat.

    I'm digging a really cheap bottle of Giraud Bali Sunrise out of the closet to re-test. The name fits the bill. Reporting back later.

    For reasons that I can't explain, "Giraud Bali Sunrise" really appeals to me!! Maybe it reminds me of an old Bob Hope and Bing Crosbie movie or something. Do report back....!

    I had planned on Mahora for last SyncFri but was at the mall (rare occurance for me) an went and tested Brit edt and Chance eau Fraiche .Whoops!
    For this Friday 8-10-2012 Scent that reminds you of a painting or sculpture.......I don't know yet.
    Paloma Picasso? Jontue- 'cause the package looks Impressionistic? One of my parents' bottles of Van Gogh ?EA Sunflowers? Issey Miyake or Gaultier might squeek under the wire as fabric sculptors.....Terre d'Hermes for flinty stone smell?
    Hmmm...

    Today's is a toughie. I've had a look through my wardrobe and the smells don't evoke any paintings or sculptures for me, so will have to make some other connection. Think I'll go for Angel Garden of Stars Violet, and will associate with Van Gogh Starry Night. Angel edt is another possibility, since the bottle's got that swirly thing going on which is reminscent of the painting.

    Soir de lune. A clever SA spritzed me with it when I was shopping in my lunch break, and when I went back to painting I kept getting these lovely whiffs of scent when I moved, or when my arm stretched out to the canvas.... I had to get a bottle!
    So Soir de Lune has a painting association for me. Today back at work, painting, and wearing Soir de Lune. Hmmmmmm.

    And Soir de lune also has a sculptured top
    Here's a painting

    Not syncing today, as I am dying to test stuff, but if I had synchd I would have worn Olympic Orchids Golden Cattleya. I recently blogged that the perfume reminded me of Audrey Hepburn.

    Here's the pic:

    Perfume appeals to my nose the way music appeals to my ears, exquisite food to my taste buds, photography to my eyes, and great loving from my man to my sense of touch.

    I can safely conclude, then, that PERFUME IS ART in its purest form.

    As an artist, I therefore have a responsibility to buy as much perfume as I can. You know, to learn about art and all.

    FrouFrou! There you are, our gorgeous redhead! So nice to see you! That's another beautiful piece of work you've posted for us; I miss your art around here!

    I'm not honoring a specific work but an entire movement- the Art Deco period. My favorite era for many things: architecture, sculpture, jewelry & perfume design especially. Wearing the most perfectly Art Deco perfume of all, No.5.

    Happy sync day!

    Perfumed lady, I have been solving one disaster after the other, and although I had little time for fun, I smelled great all the while

    foustie, thank you

    Well I have nicked devilcats idea of Van Gogh's Starry Night and I am going with Goutal Nuit Etoilée. I think that is goes very well with frou frou's painting too. It is quite mysterious and it has a wee edge to it. I expected it to be all Patchouli and Pine though and it's actually herbal and minty!

    Ah, I just rememberd once I reached my workplace that today is sync Friday! Arrrrrgh... And I'm wearing Muguet du Bois. No Chanel or Patou decants in my drawer either. I'll sync in the evening, probably with Sira des Indes - the summer has finally arrived here!

    Only have one Patou that I could call on (a sample of Sira des Indes) but I've got plenty of Chanels, so going with Coco Mademoiselle. Haven't worn this in a while. Very nice, and added advantage is that I'm thinking if I have this, I don't need Coco Noir.

    I'm not syncing today. Yesterday I received 5 packs full of perfume samples. Two from swaps, one from a perfume boutique and two from generous friends. Got over 30 new perfume to try so I just couldn't resist and had to go for some Penhaligon's today.
