    I'll do an Acqua. Acqua di Sicilia. It is not watery or aquatic though. It is a robust citrus Cologne with something like cypress to give it an extra twang. One of my old fragrance buddies. I love it.

    On the l'eau goes.

    Quite tame for him. Pleasant whiff of neroli-ish, lavenderish clean shirts. A minty sparkle in there emerging with a clean floral. It's not bad actually. Clean and laundry bright for those who want that sort of thing. Like a clean just washed linen shirt. None of his normal spicy gourmandy stuff, just clean like scrubbed skin. I wonder if it could disguise an after work body to smell just washed! I'm not going to try that but I reckon it could. I wouldn't have guessed SG on a blind sniff with this one.

    I'm in sparkly "clear water"- Hermes Eau Claire des Merveilles. Not an aquatic , I took some creative liberties this week.

    I went the same way, PerfumedLady, but I was thinking I wasn't being creative enough! "Marvellous Water" is such a literal translation for Eau des Merveilles, but it still makes me think of actual water more than most fragrances in my wardrobe that happen to have "eau" in their names but don't have much to do with water, and certainly aren't considered aquatics, either.

    Evangeline, you are always plenty creative! I'm glad you posted the pic, now that's an ad campaign I absolutely love! Would post the Eau Claire ad, which I adore, except I am on the Kindle. Probably a way to do it but I'm not savvy enough to figure it out!

    Yes, Eau Claire has a very watery vibe as well, I think. Sheer enough for summer, cozy and powdery enough for winter- I really love this one! A great four season scent. Need to wear this much more often!

    Somewhat uncreative yet in-synch with the last of my small decant of Silver Mountain Water. I have to admit, I've harbored a bit of a disdain for the Creed brand philosophy, and the first few of their fragrances I tried did not impress me. This, however, is very nice, and may end up on my shelf sooner rather than later...

    I'm not a big fan of most aquatic scents, especially not in cold weather so I pulled out my sample of Baume du Doge from Eau d'Italie. Swoon...

    For Water, my choice is Shi by Alfred Sung. "Shi" means water in Japanese and Chinese, and the top of the cap shows a pictogram/character of the word

    I like this light aquatic with its frangipani notes.

    Scent twins with Evangeline, I'm also wearing Eau Des Merveilles today. I daydream of deserted beaches and sun-dried skin, salty waves tickling my toes while wearing this. One of my very favorites!

    Tonight, I'm digging out the decant of Carthusia Ligea "La Sirena" ... It's named for a mermaid ... that should bring on some more water-y daydreams!

    Giving the synch a miss today. This theme requires a bit of thought and all my brain power is being used up elsewhere today! I'm interested to see what others come up with though.

    Happy synching!

    I'm in L'air du desert Marocain today. The "why" is quite simple: I felt like finally giving a full test drive to my sample. I think it would work even better on a cold, grey day. It's not luminous enough to match the beautiful, crisp morning sunshine.

    Hi y'all!

    I'm in sync in Mauboussin Pour Elle, which I bought in Melbourne when we were there for the Australian Open in January. I must admit that I bought it primarily for the bottle after a very cursory sniff that let me know it was pleasant enough, but it was too hot to wear there anyway, so I'm only getting to know it now that it's cooler here. As it turns out, it's a luscious and buttery fruity-floral-gourmand featuring a tantalizing rhubarb note, and I really like it!

    It was created in 2011 by Olivier Cresp and Nathalie Lorson, and its notes are rhubarb, red berries, orange blossom, jasmine, rose, gardenia, caramel, amber and sandalwood.

    Another truant here, like devilcat this one requires me to think creatively and there's just no time for that today. While I do use travel as opportunity to sniff and sample locally unavailable fragrances, I haven't actually made a purchase while traveling since my early 20's. I'm picky and usually overwhelmed by in store sampling. It's better for me to order decants once back home (if samples are not offered) of those that perked up my nose.

    I guess I could have gone with something picked up in Chicago but those don't feel very traveled to me! They only had a few hours by car to my house, don't think they count.

    I saw my journey and started to think deep thoughts about the fragrance that encompassed my life's path from a young child to who I am today... then decided I was thinking too hard for a Friday morning, and applied a recent favorite that I picked up during my last trip - the Las Vegas BN meet-up: Guerlain Homme Intense. This was recommended to me by Redneck Perfumisto, and though I usually give a fragrance some time and testing, I tried this one out and picked it up about an hour later on the spot. It's a kind of off melange of just-sweet-enough woods, with the rhubarb and a hint of mint from the opening mojito accord sticking around well into the heart. It's odd: cooling, yet warm, and I think the patchouli really plays a part without really announcing itself. I have a hard time really putting my finger on what I like about it. But I do like it.

    Hi everyone. For todays synch.... no contest. I am onto this one!! It has to be Santa Maria Novella Peau D'Espagne because it symbolises many journeys for me. First smelled in Florence at the shop in Via della Scalla many years ago, bought in Lucca last year.

    To me, it symbolises my journey through my love of fragrance. I recoiled when I first smelled this. I thought that it was incredible but it is very challenging. Now, many years later, I genuinely adore it. It symbolises my fragrant journey to a comfortable and preferred place. I see my journey in it, and I couldn't give two hoots if anyone else thinks it stinks!

    It also symbolises my journeys to Italy, a love affair that will never end, and of course, my journey through the most important love of my life. He was with me when I first smelled this and he was with me on the trip when I bought it. So many journeys in this fragrance, so many loves.

    Oh, what a nice post, Foustie! Compared to your fragrant journey with Peau D'Espagne my Mauboussin just seems like some smelly souvenir!

    I really thought more people would be playing along today ...I suppose I thought everyone brought home a new perfume when they traveled.

    Hello everyone. Well I had to really think about this one today. I have long been aware that I don't actually find fragrance sexy, interesting yes, attractive, oh yes, sensual certainly, irresistable even. I love it! I have followed behind a man in the supermarket just to catch his trail of Terre D'Hermes! But I very rarely find it sexy.

    If I had to choose something because I wanted to feel va va voom, it would be Tabac Blond or Chanel Coco , neither of which I am wearing today.

    I am interested to see what you all suggest!
