    I forgot to post here yesterday, but I wore Black Cashmere and enjoyed it very much. It is dark, rich, spicy yet smooth as fine cashmere ... why don't I wear this more often?

    Oh my word I love my gourmands! Might well get the Angel A Taste of Fragrance out which I very rarely wear. That would combining tomorrow's and last weeks synch.

    But and it's a BIG FAT BUT also hiding away is a jewelled bottle of EL Amber Ylang Ylang extrait which is just so edible in all it's banana topped vanilla icecream glory.

    Or PG Tonkamande just swoon inducing

    Aarrrggghhh.... Too many choices

    Traversee du Bosphore for me. Fruit, leather, iris, turkish delight and a hint of cardboard - close to the scent of a newly opened box of chocolates. I like this stuff more every time I wear it.

    Aw! Gourmands are not a preferred genre for me, but I could have gone for something with Almond, then I remembered that I had a sample of Aomasssai, so the synch has given me a chance to wear that. When I tried it the first time I was struck by a hazelnut note, today it is so much more. This is a really interesting fragrance. I begins with a pronounced burnt sugar caramel note then toasted hazelnuts, then a kind of liquorice note joins in (not anise-ey, it is like that the black liquorice that you eat). The whole stays dry though which keeps interesting for me. It becomes woody in time. Really good.

    Started synching at bed time last night. I couldn't wait I started with EL Amber Ylang Ylang extrait. Banoffee pie and ice cream.... Gorgeously smooth sweetness.

    Today's synch has been TM Angel a Taste of Fragrance. Dry powdery cocoa which dries to a softer Angel but lacks its mama's longevity. Really looking forward to the weekend sniff and speak

    I don't really do gourmand scents. I was going to go and put on Monas Vanille but I have just remembered I have a sample of SL Five O'Clock au Gingembre and that is perfect for today. I wouldn't say my fave but I need to try it on again to remember.

    Tomorrow's travel theme "Great white North" is really fitting. Everything is white outside and we are expecting more snow tomorrow. I'll pull out something powdery, Teint de Neige or Citizen Queen, maybe Lou Lou.

    Planning of the 2013 syncs

    There are only four syncs left and we reach the end of our list. Shall we start collecting ideas for the 2013 syncs?

    I'd be happy to manage the 2013 sync forum, but if there's anybody who would love to do it then please speak up and you can take it over.

    To kick-start the flow of ideas: there were a few syncs which did not make it into the 2012 list due to a shortage of Fridays. Here they are:

    Day of The Roses
    The latest niche scent you bought
    Your most abstract, "artificial" scent
    Your most concrete, life-like scent

    Please let us know if you have a sync idea you'd like to put on the 2013 list.

    Bonsai, for the whole year you have been doing the best of the jobs managing this whole thread, putting it to the top, modifying the very first post to reflect the dates, etc. (I know you have been away on a vacation or something a couple of weeks, but in general your skills were superb). Whether you and/or other people decide who continues this in 2013, I would like to publicly THANK YOU: for sticking up, for thoroughly following through, for being a good sport, for being an example of how things should be done.

    Yes, thank you for the interesting and inventive selections.

    I am thinking of Annick Goutal Nuit Etoile because of the pine note. That is of course if I can find my purse spray!!!!!

    Okay, finally found it!!!!!!! It wasn't with my usual decants and minis. Knew I had not given it away and what the box looked liked.

    Eeek! I forgot! But you will never believe it......

    I am wearing O'Driu Linfidele 1003 today and it makes me think of a Celtic Forest, green, trees, and herbs, and oxygen, a Northern Forest. And there is snow forecast here today. So, a northern forest with snow on! *gasp*. Spooky huh?

    Oh come on, one point for trying? Where's mumsy? She'll give me one.

    Teint de Neige or Eau D'Hiver? Snow forecast so may dip out as I'm not sure I want to smell of winter in the cold

    Okay, it will be Annick Goutal Nuit Etoilee for me.

    I did say because of the pine note, pine makes me think northern frosty forests. And this is Siberian pine with cool peppermint.

    Easy-peasy for me today. My little brain processed perfume + Great White North and spit out Ernest Beaux + Arctic Circle + aldehydes. No.5 it is, freezing cold Arctic air in a bottle.

    Cristalle - it smells fresh and clean, but with a sharp edge. Like taking a deep breath in sub-zero temperatures.

    Terre d'Hermes was my first thought, but that's a bit literal. I'm thinking 'soil' rather than 'planet', so might go with Coromandel since I get an earthy, compost vibe with that one (more pleasant than it sounds). Patch is quite an earthy smell, so something heavy with that perhaps?

    Synced in Malle's Une Rose, with its weird and wonderful truffle accord.

    Bonsai, thank you for being our fearless leader this past year! You have done a brilliant job of keeping us organized. I'm happy to see you wouldn't mind sticking with us next year! 2012 has been full of really fun syncs!

    Now we must help Bonsai out, gang; we really need to plan 2013 syncs! I'm all for repeating our favorite or most popular syncs from previous years but we do need some more ideas, I think. Have we ever done a green sync? I realize not everyone loves green scents but maybe could be good for getting folks to step out of their normal categories.

    I have opened a new forum for the 2013 syncs.
    We can do the planning of the new syncs there and keep this forum for the last two syncs we have left of 2012.

    My biggest "from love to hate" fragrance is Shalimar. I found it cloyingly sweet the first time I tested it and haven't given it a second thought for about five years. When I tried it again I was blown away: the delicious, non-foody vanilla, it's heavenly smokiness, the bergamote opening and the animalic undertones - a marvel.

    Daim Blond. Tried it on its release and all I got was apricot jam, which I didn't fancy smelling like. About 3 years ago perhaps on a whim picked up a tester and BANG!! It was suddenly gorgeous, rich, yes still had apricots but the suede etc suddenly came out.
