    +1 on that.

    I have been wearing TF Oud Wood the past 2 days, admittedly, not on it's own, but i feel like wearing something new, and i loved my initial spritz of Sergy Boy, so he's accompanying me on my travels tomorrow.

    Hey everyone! Y'all smell soooooooo good ...especially donna.

    I'm also in Bois des Îles, my usual double dose of parfum and edt.

    My favorite woody scent? Geez, most of my wardrobe is woody. I like to wear florals, as long as it's a woody floral, and I like to wear orientals, as long as it's a woody oriental, and I like to wear citrus, as long as it's a woody citrus.

    Too many choices for favorite, so I decided to revisit a possible future favorite: HDP's Jules Verne (1828). I really enjoy the treatment that the cedar gets in this one. It's a very nice, smooth, creamy cedar, maybe Atlas or Himalayan, definitely not one of the Juniper-family cedars. And it's quite well blended with the other notes, producing my favorite thing in a fragrance, a smooth, seamless "chord", where the combination of notes produces something quite unexpected, odd, and somewhat indescribable. I wish it lasted a bit longer, but this is the kind of fragrance I'd be happy to add to my collection.

    Been in SL Bois de Violette too cold in the opening to be a totally woody to my nose and is certainly a better summer wood that autumnal wood

    Sorry guys, I didn't get to check in on Friday. What lovely woody fragrances. I would be happy with ANY of them. My wee special for Friday was Xerjoff Richwood, from a sample. It is goooorgeous!! Still on the synch theme today with Tom Ford Santal Blush, also gorg!

    I don't really pay attention to ad campaigns. I see the Chanel ads, but pay no attention(okay I channel hop in the ad breaks) Don't buy magazines any more.

    So it will be a miss from me tomorrow.

    Spoilt for choice really, since I regard most 'fume ads and descriptions as a load of old marketing cobblers. Got me thinking of the reverse: a scent you hate but with a good advert, in which case my vote would go to Ricci Ricci.

    Will probably wear Kenzo Amour tomorrow. This from escentual: "Kenzo Amour, is both an evocation and the fruit of a languid voyage of love in Asia, punctuated by encounters, soft sensations and perfumes bursting with life. Olfactory souvenirs brought back from a journey through India, Indonesia, Japan, Myanmar and Thailand. Sensually elongated bottles that evoke a bird, symbolizing a voyage of love taking flight. Kenzo Amour... a voyage of love..."

    Let's cut to the chase shall we? It smells like rice pudding. I do love it though.

    Hey y'all -

    I wrapped up my week of roses for today, and synching was easy-peasy! I've been yammering about it enough already ...I don't like the Dior Addict ads, but the fragrance is beautiful and luscious, so that's what I'm in today.

    My rant is directed at the Kelly Caleche print ads. This scent is one of my favorites from my collection but I find the ad to be beneath Hermes' usual simple and elegant style. And the model in liquid black leather, whip in tow has NOTHING to do with this perfume. It"s not a badass leather, as the photos would imply. I don't think anyone who has tried this would call this a "black leather". It's luxury purse leather and Hermes could have gotten this ad so perfect because what do they make?- the Kelly bag! Have never understood why they didn't link into their beautiful leather goods with the KC ad campaign. But I'll forgive them because I love JCE!

    That's funny, I went and looked up KC ad. Whoa! That's some whip!

    I was not going to be in sync because I am trying to go through Dior exclusive collection samples right now, but... I think I will be in sync after all, closer to the afternoon. Today I got my Las Vegas FB purchase in the mail (psst, I haven't even mentioned it on "Today I bought" thread nor on our trip thread). It is Nuda by Nasomatto, and it is a gorgeous happy jasmine, it is not too dirty but there is definitely a heady indolic feel to it. But it is happy! Not creepy! And this ad that I found for it is creeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeepy:

    Just look at it. Ugh. Disturbing. And Nuda is such a happy scent, it does not make me think of nudity, especially not such creepy nudity. I am more likely to connect these images to it:





    P.S. How do I get rid of these annoying thumb previews for the pics I post?

    Oh, my goodness, all that weird webbing makes the nude look like she's had a bikini wax gone very, very wrong! Creepy indeed- I think you win this week, Warum! At least the KC photos could make an attractive ad for a much darker scent. The Nuda ad is just disturbing!

    Glad you found yourself a pretty new jasmine! And we heard it here first, how exciting! Enjoy your new "baby"!

    I don't know any ads that I hate either. I don't often see any, actually. And if there was an ad I hated I probably wouldn't have the fragrance, not because of the ad but because...???...I don't know.

    Ok, I agree. Kelly Caleche may win for me too. And I love the scent. It is cold and dreary here in the mountains of Virginia today, so a bit of a warm leather goodness wrapping its arms around me sounds lovely.
    Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as hunger. There is really nothing to be said about it. It is like the perfume of a rose: you can smell it and that is all.

    Not a lot of what I buy has ads that I can come across easily. And, besides being totally cheezy, most ads don't do anything for me one way or another. But then I remembered... I wouldn't say I love this fragrance, but I own and enjoy it, it's simple and woody and easy to spray on and forget about, and it's very dry and unsweet. A very nice, masculine scent, and different for a designer offering. But I don't think I'll ever come across an ad that turns me off as much as:

    mj-bang1.jpg

    I refuse to post a large picture of the ad... Luckily, it appears that the court of mass appeal agrees with me on this one, and I was able to pick up a 50ml bottle for $20 at Marshall's!

    Yup. Look at these fingers, it looks a bit as if they were burned off, ewwwwwwww!
    I agree that KC ad could work pretty well with some other scent.
    I am enjoying my new baby very much, thanks! will write about it a little more tonight (hopefully) when I put out my Saturday part of the trip.

    I remembered a series of TV "mini Films" directed by Baz Luhrman, starring Nicole Kidman which were loads of pretentious old tosh. Hence No5 has been my scent of choice today

    ^Lol, Alityke, I know the ones you're referring to - they were pretty silly. I agree with y'all on that ridiculous Bang ad, too.

    Warum - I can completely understand how that ad vs. what you find to be an innocent jasmine perfume might cause a bit of cognitive dissonance, but I think the illustration's quite intriguing and interesting ...I really like it, lol. It actually makes me want to sample Nuda, and I haven't had any interest in it at all up to now. Funny how that can work, huh?

    Wow, it IS funny how that works! Nuda is not THAT innocent, it does have a twinkle in one's eye and one needs to be quite fond of jasmine. But now that I look at this ad I wonder if this is an ad for Narcotic Venus. THAT actually would make a lot of sense! I got this ad from an article on 1000 fragrances blog describing the launch of Nuda, but... but... who knows? I'm going to look it up.

    One scent comes to mind: Chanel's new Coco Noir. There is nothing really "noir" about this except the nice bottle. This is a spin on Coco Mademoiselle and the original Coco, and essentially a "fruitchouli."

    I actually like this. Not my top 10 or even top 50, but something pleasant and wearable.

    I looked it up - it is for Nuda. Here's a better view. I suppose I can see how it might seem slightly lurid, but I really don't find it creepy ...I think it's sensual and beautiful.

    Yay! Friday tomorrow. Lots to choose from for the synch (water). I guess anything with Eau or Aqua in the name will hit the target, although that does seem a tad dull. Still, at least I can do better than a splash of H2O behind the ears. Maybe Missoni Aqua or Uncle Serge's L'Eau. Anyone have more interesting interpretations?? Traversee du Bosphore perhaps?

    I suppose, technically, anyone who wears an "eau de toilette" will be in synch. I was hoping not to have to resort to that, but I'm not really in an aquatic mood. Then again, if it is as warm tomorrow as it turned out to be today...I may well go for aquatic. I like it when it's difficult. It makes me have to be more creative in my interpretation. That's what's fun about this. We don't have to be so literal. I did bag out on last week's. I couldn't think of a hated ad of a fragrance I loved.
