    Next Friday is a hard one. Juliette Has a Gun fragrances or Lady Stetson are about all I've got. Unless I did Estee Lauder Dazzling Gold, since gold has a lot to do with the wild west. Any other suggestions?

    Oooh, I like the dancing ladies' face powder idea!

    Also wild rose, violets, crisp green prairie grasses. I suppose it depends where in the wild west we are! Now my brain is unlocking! And sarsaparilla, a tea with a licorice/root beer sort of flavor.

    Have asked another BNer, Al Gae for some ideas. Don't know if he'll have time to post but he's working on some scents of his own using the American West as inspiration. If there's something we're not thinking of, he will!

    Sarsaparilla is a great idea!

    Kiliwia, using gold (or silver) is also a good idea, for mining.

    I have no idea what I'm going to wear. I do have a decant of Lady Stetson, but I doubt I'll want to wear that fragrance.

    Quite flattered, PerfumedLady. I'll be marinating on this a bit this week, but don't have a lot of time at the moment. My last trip to the Old West consisted of sawdust, of course, and the hot steel and exhaust of the chainsaw. A bit of old Scotch, peaty, and a faintly smokey wool from my dad's old coat (I no longer have a coat appropriate for such climates ). The frigid wind howling up the valley - faintly piney, and frozen-fresh. And the cactus I stepped on, a sharp bite of blood. And Mom's cooking. But that's another story...

    I'll be watching this thread! A lot of good ideas here already, I'll be sure to be borrowing some... I mean really, has NObody made a sarsaparilla fragrance? I used to love to drink that stuff as a kid. It really takes me back.

    Sarsparilla would be cassia-ish I suppose with some heavier earthy sweetness and berry nuances. I like the peaty whisky smoky ideas.

    What a plethora of fantastic ideas for coming Friday! I'm afraid I can't add anything, all of the ideas I had have been already listed and surpassed.

    I love your idea, kumquat! We had one single slot open in the 2012 list - now it's taken. Our list is complete! My biggest 180-deg fragrance was Shalimar - sickeningly sweet when first tried and jumping into my top 3 a few years later.

    Don't let the full list hold you back though, I'll store all the coming ideas and we'll use them to kick-start the 2013 list.

    Thanks for the help, Al! I like the peaty/whiskey/smoky thought too. Very unisex idea, which is great, we do have some sync day guys. Although I'll bet our Gabe wouldn't mind smelling like a barroom hussy with me!

    Get on that, willya?! Our city has an annual Johnny Appleseed Festival in September- one of the main reasons I go each year is to have a cup of sarsaparilla tea. It is so yummy!

    Ok, this is how weird I am- I've been sniffing my Coty translucent loose powder, a make-up item I keep ONLY to sniff. Never wear it; have my nicer, technologically advanced mineral powder for that. But I love the scent and it's exactly what I'm thinking of for my dancing ladies. I know what scent I want- Guerlain's Meteorites. Since that's an impossibility, it will have to be Insolence, the next best thing. Still more modern than I was wanting, though. Guess my saloon girls will have to be futuristic floosies!

    Guerlain Meteorites definitely has that talcy faded dusty floral smell--definitely suitable for a nineteenth-century wild-west saloon dancin' girl!!

    Hi, Aglaia! I know, I know! Isn't it a shame Meteorites was discontinued? Never understood it; was a very popular scent in my area. Welcome to the Sync Friday thread, hope you'll join us!

    Hi kumqat, with the last open slot being taken I meant that I used your idea to fill it in. Thank you again for it.
    The "don't let the full list hold you back" was a message to everybody - sync ideas are always welcome even if we can't use them this year anymore.

    Looking at my samples I got an idea for tomorrow's sync: the Gold Rush. Maybe a fragrance with "Gold" in its name?

    Default Re: Synchronized Fridays 2012

    I have DK Gold so that would work, and I actually like it.

    I was thinking of RL Pure Turquoise, too. He always does something western themed. I have a sample of that, but the problem for me with Friday scent synchs is that I never know what fragrance I’ll actually be in the mood for when it’s time to pull the trigger.

    Me too and that is what I am going to go with. I have tested and smelled it so far but I haven't actually worn it. I have some business to do though so I might keep it till a bit later when I can really wear it. To begin with it smells like you have been standing next to roadworks, laying asphalt, but then it gets a bit smokier and softer. For this morning, eeehm........I just went for a look and actually I might go with Shalimar Parfum Initial. What with the tassle and the bottle it just looks right today. Yes, thats me. A saloon girl today and a cowboy tonight. I'm good!

    See you later girls and Gabe.

    I am loving all the ideas for today, gold rushes and saloon girls! It is just great!

    My first thought was Dzing! with the sawdust and sweaty horse theme...However I now decided to wear a Calvin Klein scent ( he's american isn't he?) for the synch.

    I'm late! Took about 40 min. just to log in to BN, another 10-15 to access this page. Could just be my old laptop but after the week we've had, I'll no longer access the site on my newer gadgets. None of you expected the dancing party girl to be on time anyway, did you?

    Insolence today but it's not hitting the spot. Guess I really did just want Meteorites. Need less tart berries, MORE powder!

    Lol! Lilybelle, I thought that saddle was a toy until I noticed the appy underneath! (Unless it's on one of those Breyer horses and I've been fooled twice!)

    Syncs are always so fun... I wish I had more options, but I could only come up with TdH for "cedar" or DK Gold, and I went with Gold. It reminds me of Tommy Girl minus the tea, and I finally looked it up and they are both by Calice Becker, so I guess that makes some sense. And now I can't stop thinking of Gold as "Ommy Girl" (no T! lol)
