    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.

    Aptly for floral sync, Ophelia by Heeley courtesy of a wonderful BN friend.
    Jasmine, a touch of tuberose, some greenery but not the kind that makes a floral go into floral green. A scent of this Summer, feels like.

    Didn't have time to chime in, but I decided to sync with y'all this week. Wore Centaur by MPG, a rather leafy green jasmine with a hint of smooth, creamy powder. It has a very classical, masculine feel, which was appropriate - I was in a workshop with a bunch of people I don't know so well...

    Frag with a musical theme tomorrow. Diva, Arpege, Calypso, No 5 (for Beethoven), superworldunknown (inspired by a swedish musician I think)? That's it from my collection. Any other ideas anyone?

    Further thought - a frag composed by Bernard Chant! Well, chanting is like singing, sort of ...

    I have wierd one called Pianissimo. I know nothing about it. The label is rubbing off, so it's obviously a quality item.... lol



    It looks like Wagner, then Eau de parfum, then on the bottom it says KECOFA Kerkrade NL, 100ml, hash 5137

    Any thoughts welcome

    hmmm.... well, there is Songes, Chamade, and no. 22 (as in Piano Sonata no. 22 by Beethoven) which I am having a fling with this week, so it may have to be that one.

    oh, and how about Love Potion no. 9 ?
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    Any by Beyoncé, Avril Lavigne, Celine Dion, Justin Bieber and of course the new Lady Gaga Fame. This is in no way an endorsement of any of their music or perfumes bearing their names, but each of their job descriptions is technically "musician." I own none of these, but for those who do, today would be the day to rock out with them. Speaking of which, there's 37 "Rock" perfumes in the Directory. I checked, and there really is a perfume called "Symphony" by Bizet (?) but I almost wonder if that is a joke.

    Also, any perfume with the word Diva, Opera, Aria or Song or Songe in its name:

    And Stradivari by Prince Matchabelli. I wish I had that one. Resin? I wonder.

    I'm sure I'm only scratching the surface. There's a lot of perfumes.

    Personally, I'll go with Arpège.

    Ok, on goes the Pianissimo......

    Eeeeu..... cheap hairspray scent. Fruity, amber synthetics. I will endure this for a bit.... but I may join another band before long.... A vanillic note is emerging. It has that metallic harsh note like the sharp edge of plastic or penicillin. No idea what that note is. Sorry guys, this non-surprisingly is a total scrubber. This could grade as a cheap car air freshener perhaps or a washing conditioner liquid scent.

    I'm off to find another song instead.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Scrubbed and re-fraggled

    Roberto Capucci - Opera IV pour homme, edt strength

    Took a severe battle to get the lid off. I nearly gave up. but I'm glad I didn't. It explains why I haven't put it on before. I bought it with a job lot of mint condition unused minis eons ago.

    A completely delightful very traditional classic citric/herbal/floral manly niff. I would say for an older refined sort of chap. I'm amazed this is edt, it is more like a cologne strength. I'm surprised we don't hear more about this one. It's a superb classic linen suit summer day sort of wear. I could snuggle into someone wearing this. I love it. This was made for a real man who probably lives in a hot place. I can see a mediterranean stylish man wearing it or in fact anyone in a hotter country. There is an anisic or peppermint twist emerging as I write, keeping it from being dull, whilst the background is being a classic chypre type mossy, greeny, woodsy thing. It is keeping light whilst being deep at the same time but not overpowering. There is a merest hint of something like suede with the minty/fruity sparkle on top. It reminds me a tiny bit of a classy and light version of Duc de Vervins by Houbigant.

    Great ideas above!
    I'm test driving L'Artisan Batucada - "Batucada" being a version of Samba. I do like it's slight animalic undertone but it won't be put on my "to buy" list.

    Btw, as far as I know Songes by AG refers to "dreams" and not to singing.

    Hiya everyone! I have been so busy. I have missed our little Friday soirées. What a cracker today. Thank You professor goggles. Well straight away I thought what a great excuse to wear Moulin Rouge, but I have changed my mind and I am going to join devilcat and Donna225 in Calamity J, from a sample.

    Oh, wonderful posts this week gang!

    I thought like Foustie (big surprise) and nearly went for Moulin Rouge. But I have the Weil pass here and it's so large that I feel I must stay on track. Then it hit me- "Duh, PL this Weil pass was organized by jujy!" Jujy, our resident professional musician! Anything I choose of hers will do! In my mind at least.

    So, I'm in sync in Weil's Padisha. Yes, I am.

    Incidentally before checking the theme, I put on Gres Cabaret this morning. LOTS of it, because this little cheapie gem usually fades to a lemonade skin scent on me. Not today: spray 4+ times and it's smokey bars and sheer rose/patch cocktails. Oldschool Berlin and LIIIIIIZAAAAAH. "Life is a cabaret, old chum..."

    (Re-posting from SoTD board):

    I'm swooping in to do the Synch Friday - scents with music associations - before heading back "out" to hit the books some more. Miss you all, and hope everyone is doing wonderfully!

    Backstory for today's fragrance choice: My oldest kid (who left for college in Chicago a couple of weeks ago - I AM NOT OLD ENOUGH TO HAVE A COLLEGE-AGE CHILD!!!) asked me awhile ago what my "theme song" was... The tune that just shows up all the time in your head as you're going about your life. First off, I realized I did have a theme song, but hadn't been actively aware of it. Secondly, I thought it was extremely cool that my kid not only was aware of the theme song phenomenon, but brought it to my attention and asked me about it. Anyhow I had to admit that my theme song is (somewhat embarrassingly) "Tea for Two" from the musical No-No Nanette. It runs through my head all the time whenever there is 'space.' I don't even like the song all that much, but there you have it, my theme song anyway.

    So my SOTD is Tea for Two by L'Artisan, which just happens to be one of my very favorite frags, and which the powers that be have decided to discontinue.

    Anybody else have a theme song?
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...

    Yay - I'm finally in sync in Balenciaga's Prélude ...now, I already posted the rather obvious video (sorry) on the sotd thread, but would y'all like a little Bach for this thread, too?

    Yes? Okay, here ya go -


    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    Comdiva- that's a pretty excellent theme song!

    My theme song is Fleetwood Mac - Gypsy. It has been all of my life. Being of some Romani heritage has nothing to do with it, but I also don't really find Stevie's use of the word gypsy offensive (compared to the way it's usually thrown around). It's a lovely old-fashioned vibe kind of lilting-yet-torch song. Perfumes that go well with it for me: Ombre Rose, old Arpege, vintage L'Heure Bleue ... all in actual scent, not reputation.

    I was stumped, then realized I'd synched without realizing it - Opus 1870!

    I don't know if I consider it a theme song, but pretty much anytime I'm whistling unconsciously, it's "Let it Snow"...
