    We're in Cincinnati for a tennis tournament and I certainly didn't plan it when I was packing, but it must be kismet, as I'm totally in sync with Chanel Cristalle Eau Verte. Then again, with Chanel the odds are sort of in my favor.

    Which Penhaligon's, Lucasai, if you don't mind?

    I want to sync from Chanel today and cannot decide: Cristalle or №22? Which one of the two? Both are an association with PerfumedLady for me, both are beautiful scents, absolutely gorgeous and very different. The cloudiness of the morning calls for 22, but if the Sun comes out, it will be more of Cristalle weather... decisions decisions... I'll wait and think (liked that "Sync Friday makes you think... and sometimes stink", Foustie!)

    ...one big grading day and all the finals should be over!.. whoo hooo!

    Lol, Warum, just to throw you off, I'm in Cuir de Russie! Still have some of that 22 you sent me for being a squeaky wheel! I learned my lessons from Twolf very well.

    CdR is not my favorite Chanel, or even my favorite leather but it is a masterpiece. My time at BN has taught me that if I'm ever forced to choose only one house to give my money to, Chanel would be the only one to keep me happy for the long haul. Na-na-na-boo-boo, Guerlain, you have lost this girl's devotion.

    Love this sync and aim to get into 2 more Chanels today- that lovely vintage No.22 and of course my fave of them all, No.5. Have worn gallons of Cristalle this summer or would go for that one. Warum, I finally did it, learned to love No.5 in EDT! And the newer Cristalles are growing on me, too!

    Let's see, which are the scents that came home with me after a trip abroad:

    Bronze Goddess, purchased at an airport, reminding me of the lady at the cash register who did not feel like chatting about fragrances, just wanted me to pay as quickly as possible and give way to the next customer.

    The four L'Erbolario scents I stumbled accross in a tiny shop in Frascati, Italy: Meharees, Ambraliquida, Iris and Tiare. The sweet shopkeeper only spoke Italian (which I do not) but I managed somehow to explain her that I'd like to smell the L'Erbolario scents. She did have the patience of taking all the testers off the shelves and letting me spend a considerable amount of time sniffing and re-sniffing everything. I was slowly becoming a local attraction, the other customers looking at me strangely, some more adventurous ones joining me in sniffing and commenting on the scents (sadly, in Italian). I left with four bottles, a bag full of samples and a desire to visit that tiny shop again sometime.
    This was the same trip that my Citizen Queen decant I took with me has leaked and scented my hotel room, probably for ever. Now, one year later I am slowly becoming accustomed to the thought of wearing CQ again.

    And the beautiful, sparkling Etro Dianthus, reminding me of a summer day on the fantastic island of Helgoland. Not only a paradise for those who love watching birds from closeby or swimming with seals, but also for those who enjoy a good chocolate or a beautiful scent (the island is a duty-free zone, overflowing with perfume (even some niche) and chocolat/alcohol/tobacco shops). AA Herba-Fresca and Angelique-Lilas have also accompanied me home from that trip.

    Oh, Bonsai, sounds like you had a wonderful (and well scented) trip!! I've not sniffed anything else from the line, but I bought Iris from L'Erbolario blind and I really enjoy it. The iris body butter is great too, and quite strongly scented. The fragrance is one of the few that I have gotten a compliment from a stranger while wearing

    I love Herba-Fresca too, and in fact really should just purchase for next summer.

    Good to hear from you again, and welcome back!!!

    I will have to give tomorrow a miss. I never go on holiday, sorry. Two cats who would have nervous breakdowns if I left them, plus too much perfume/cosmetic buying means I cannot afford to holiday.

    I'm assuming tomorrow's theme requires a scent acquired from somewhere a bit more exotic and further off than Manchester?! If not I would have lots to choose from. I think I will go with a purchase from my latest trip overseas, which was to NYC only last month. I picked up a bottle of Vetiver pour Elle from Saks on Fifth Ave. It was my sole perfume purchase from the trip, and also a birthday present, so extra special. I had wanted to try it for a very long time and it didn't disappoint.

    Pretty sure I synced last week in Eau Premiere.I too tend to use money on frags rather than travel -but my parents brought me a bottle of Alaskan Mist (smells similar to CK1),or the Egoluxe Feminine (like Baby doll by YSL) that Dad brought back from a business trip to Germany.

    Synching today in SL Ambre Sultan which I discovered whilst I was away in Edinburgh. I'm on my second bottle now but in the intervening years it has lost some of it's claws

    In synch with NIRMALA, which I bought from the lovely Molinard
    boutique in Nice. This little shop has soaps of every hue and scent on display outside
    and all the perfumes displayed enticingly in the small, but friendly
    inside.

    Nirmala is a very full-on, almost blousy scent packed full of ripe fruits and therefore
    has an almost boozy quality to it. It can wear you if not applied with sufficient restraint!
    A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.

    Yay - an actual reason to wear my latest love again! I'm in sync in Shalimar Parfum Initial, which I picked up on our trip to China and Japan last month. As I was just saying to the folks over on the sotd thread, I really didn't expect to like this very much, being a Shalimar and all, but I was wrong - one spritz and I was hooked. I wanted something new and different to remember the trip by, and this was my choice for evenings. And it really was a perfect choice - I absolutely adore it and all the special memories it holds in its tender flesh-hued juice.

    Egoluxe for me today- my car's A/C isn't working so something that will last is preferable.The Alaskan Mist is more like 4711 than CK1 and won't last very long.

    I've just come back from Spain and I was given Fragonard Bleu Riviera. A younger girls perfume IMO but fairly pleasant. A sort of marine violet floral with sweeter vanillin nuances.

    I'm wearing Dolce Vita today, a fragrance I bought while on a cruise in March 1996. We were on the island of Martinique, a French island. There was a lovely department store, can't remember the name but it was very French. The cosmetics and fragrance areas were large and well stocked with a lot of things I couldn't buy in Kansas ... This was before my perfume obsession began, and I think back and wish I knew then what I know now. I remember I also bought some L'occitane perfume, I think it was called Bourbon Vanilla. It was in such a cute square bottle with a very exotic looking label. Well, it was exotic to this fragrance newbie who had never seen L'occitane in any store at that time.

    I wore Dolce Vita the rest of the cruise ... I still love it!
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Thank you for the kind words. No, the Italy trip with the cute L'Erbolario shop was a short work travel about a year ago. We went sailing this summer, island-hopping along the north coast of Germany (East- and North-Frisian islands).

    Creed Fleur de The Rose Bulgare for me this week, this one I am very stingy about. Rarely worn but much loved by me. Of course my bottle came from 30 Roses, like lots of other BNers' did. Was such a great opportunity to buy this one reasonably. Love this best of all when it's hot outside, today will be perfect for this lovely.

    bonsai, so nice to have you back! We missed our fearless leader!

    Okay, I must be a bit dense today, LOL-- clearly it's roses today (PerfumedLady for once I should be able to synch!) but where is there a grand list off what the synch is for each Friday?

    I'll wear FdTRB also!

    Lol, 30R it's florals today, you are close enough and certainly well stocked for this sync! Glad you chose your Creed; it' s been making me so happy all morning!

    The big master list is on page one of this thread. I have to dig it up every week because I still have not made myself a sync calender, like some of these smarties have.
