    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!

    Travel tropical islands this week. Got to be La Maison de la Vanille, Vanille Divine des Tropiques from a very generous sample courtesy of a very generous BN enabler.

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

    I don't do Tropical in fragrance. I know I will have something, especially if I just think vanilla rather than fruity.

    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!

    Not been able to synch due to the migraine. Please may I synch tomorrow morning instead? Surely morning in the UK means it will still be Friday somewhere?

    Was planning the Zara Coco Romance/Vanille Divine des Tropiques combo

    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

    www.aafke-art.com

    “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.”

    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:

    Audrey-Hepburn-Smile-Leo-Fuchs.jpg
    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!

    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!

    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.
