    Yes, let's finish 2011 in the old thread. I'll leave the upcoming two syncs (today and the 30th) in this thread though until the end of 2011, then they'll go in the "2011 syncs" list.

    I agree, keep 2011 in 2011.

    In synch with Knowing, Estee Lauder, from a sample I got from the shop here.

    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”

    We don't have anything on Jul 27 -- and it can be pretty hot for many of us -- how about a favorite refreshing scent?

    A scent with a musical theme?

    Bonsai, I got another idea for sync -- it's the opposite of favorite ad/description. We can do a fragrance which you love but hate the ad for it (would be fun to post the ads). A similar idea is a mis-match -- a fragrance that does not suit its ad/description/name.

    I'm actually having second thoughts, considering Nahema for tomorrow. I have no bottle, but this was my rocking scent discovery this year.

    Not at all! Perfumes:The Guide is a book written by Luca Turin&Tania Sanchez. Contains ratings and reviews of a fairly long list of fragrances as well as more basic info about perfumes-history,chemistry,fragrance families,etc. Not a book to swear by but a handy little resource to have-mine is downloaded into my Kindle to help enable the perfume shopping habit even more!

    Thank you - another fun idea. I am adding them to the list (combining the two).

    That's a challenge - I am not familiar with most of your fragrances. What about Black Orchid or Bal a Versailles? Or the one you feel like wearing the most today?

    Happy 2012 to all of you! Two more nights to sleep and our first Friday sync of 2012 is here!

    We'll kick off with the first one in the "Travel Theme" series: Arabian nights. Pull out your oriental heavy hitters, your spice bombs, your scents of seduction. Or reach for your damascus roses, scents reminding you of the hot desert sun or of sticky sweets.

    Get your fantasy going and share your choice and the reasoning behind it with us. A fun Friday to all the synchronisers!

    I am still not sure what I will do. Amouages seem to fit the bill (Lyric and Epic especially, and I had some samples of both). Got a sample of SL Arabie too. Decisions, decisions...

    Thank you for keeping this synching going. I could never do it so well or even at all. Great homage to Le Grand Duc for maintaining it for so long and big smackers for you for picking it up.

    I think I will be in Profumos Caravan No 1

    I have chosen for Traversee du Bosphore from a sample. Pleasant enough but I don't need a bottle of it. I have also prepared samples of some myrrh scents yesterday but it's just not cold enough over here for their proper enjoyment.

    Well Les Nereides Imperial Opoponax. So thick,sweet and rich it could be sickly but manages somehow not to be.

    This was a blind buy for me from TKMaxx at under £10.

    Ambre Sultan, also from a sample. Very dry, herby opening, not at all sweet, with just a hint of creaminess at the bottom. Certainly conjures up images of heat and dust. Let's see how it develops.
