    Whew wheeew (wolf whistle!)

    Some great ideas coming in; the paintings, such as the Mona Lisa, I can see descending into a right laugh given the Joie De Vivre of the posters here. The gourmand is a must have one, a very popular genre. For me, thinking about gourmand, I was about to say bleeeuch but then.......You see, this is the thing I have learned about the synch. It is a good way to shove yourself out of your comfort zone. For last weeks synch I wore a fragrance with Almond and Turkish Delight notes.....

    Edit; "out of your comfort zone..." I should say except for Perfumed Lady coz she wears Shalimar EDP every week! Ha ha.

    Hello everyone and Bonsai in particular, I actually liked the idea of geographical fragrances, it is actually pretty wide in my opinion and of course many categories are subjective, I find it more restrictive when we synch houses but perhaphs I will have to prepare and go out and try to find something from the particular house that I like, which is a good way to widen our horizons so not complaining at all, I am sure that everyone will have their favorite synchs and perhaps a couple they do not like as much. So we are doing aldehydes this Friday, correct?

    Yes, aldehydes are next.

    To me it's also primarily about "widening our horizons" as you said or getting "out of our comfort zones" as Foustie put it. I enjoy pulling out scents on Fridays which I otherwise would not wear (mostly because they are not in my usual rotation or because I am not sure yet if I really love them or I simply forgot I had them) - it almost always ends up as a great experience. Though I am dreading the "worst PINK juice" sync...

    Oh, yeah, worsts will be interesting?)) we could do more worsts, that can be fun too. I am not sure I get it though what you mean by "worst pink juice", pink like pink smelling or pink as in pink colored juice?

    Could we have a "bomb" sync. Sorry if it's on or been suggested mea culpe poor memory. Was thinking along the lines of BIG frags that make a STATEMENT! Giorgio, Angel, Byzance etc. Those love/hate once smelt never forgotten scents. I know any excuse to get my Poison, Opium, Cinnabar out

    LOL, no, I did not plan on giving the details!.. :rolleysold:

    Looking forward to the aldehydes sync! I packed samples of SSS Champagne de Bois and Amouage Gold. I will try to get to wear them both!

    Well, you smartypants gals neglected to remind me that aldehyde day was coming up when I shot my mouth off about being able to sync Shalimar every week! Nope, can't do it this week and that's o.k.- I love aldehydes, too! Still considering this week's scent. No.5 is my favorite but won't do that this time. I do have some lovelies from our dear W.'s wardrobe- a whopper of a wardrobe as far as aldehydes go!

    This whole mess has got me to thinking- what with all the Shalimar reformulations and flankers, why hasn't Guerlain given us an airy, fluffy, aldehydic Shalimar? Could be wonderful, I think. Bonsai, just for you, I'll give you any crazy reasoning I can think of when Shalimar could be used for sync! I agree, Foustie- sync day is a great way to force ourselves out of our complacent little comfort zones. Goodness knows I need it!

    Good idea, thank you! I've added it to the list. This will certainly be an "out of your comfort zone" sync for me. I have a sample of Angel I enjoy but I did not dear to give it a full wear yet - here's my chance!

    Bonsai and everybody else: how about a synch day centered around Tdem's scentiment on yesterday's SotD thread "Why don't I wear it more often?" -- it will give everybody a perfect opportunity to dive in and explore our own Wardrobes better.

    tomorrow I'll likely wear Chanel no. 22 for my daytime scent and perhaps break out the Joy vintage parfum thanks to a dear basenoter, you know who you are
    "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." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    Thanks for the idea. We already have "A buried/forgotten treasure" in the list which is about the same. But maybe it does not hurt to repeat it under the name you proposed. Most probably we all have enough scents we neglect (but which would deserve to be worn more often) - it would be fun to pull those out again.

    I have chosen LouLou for today's sync. It's certainly one I should be wearing more often, it's beautiful.

    Good afternoon all. I am scent quadruplets (at least) I think in Chanel No. 5. How fantastic to see our gabeinstyle wearing it! I would love to see how it wears on a man.

    A confession; I don't know a great deal about aldehydes. I know the well known bits, but as a component I have no great experience. I could comment on lots of materials but aldehydes don't feature largely in my little repertoire. So, lots to be learned today.

    I chose Chanel No.5 for good reason. I admire it greatly. It is glamour realised. BUT.. if I tell you that I have had my bottle of EDP for about twelve years you will understand that I don't wear it often! I don't know if I ENJOY wearing it any more you see. So, I have been testing other stuff this morning. I am just about to get showered and dressed for work (a long late shift!), so here goes!

    Decided against No.22, after all- will leave that to Rtamara! Chose Lancome's Climat instead, another treat from Warum. Someday, W., I will wrap you up in a big hug for sending me both scents!

    Climat is so airy and green, it's a wonderful contrast to the snowy, icy, grey day we're having. Per Fragrantica, notes are: (top) violet, peach, jasmine, l-o-v, bergamot, rose and narcissus, (middle) rosemary & tuberose (which I can't detect, tuberose is a fun- ruiner for me when I can) and the F-site claims the aldehydes are a middle note here; think they probably belong in the top notes list. I find that site rather goofy, don't use it unless I can't find other info. And the lovely base is made up of sandalwood, tonka bean, vetiver, bamboo, amber, civet & musk.

    Wore this in my younger days; was introduced when my mother passed her full bottle to me. She was strictly a floral aldehyde gal but I guess Climat didn't do it for her. Think she really just wanted her White Shoulders. Anyway, as a teen, I loved it in summer. Thought it felt sporty and casual but pulled together. This newer version, while not as loud as I remember, still feels the same to me. I could wear this anywhere. And what a joy it is in the cold weather!

    Clinique Wrappings, I do not often wear anything aldehydic but a cool category I think. I love how unique Wrappings is and love the green, piney notes in it counterbalanced by the beautiful florals and a bit of marine notes in the base. Very strange weather here, hail at least three times today, starting out warm and mild but getting really cold and very windy now, perhaps weather for Wrappings in my opinion.

    I'll do 22 then. I adore this....I have a little sample bottle. I would never have thought of trying it had it not been for basenotes. I didn't even know what aldehydes were before BN....

    Didn't make the sync today....been one heckuva day having to go from meeting to meeting prior to my break but in The spirit of it I found a bottle of No 5 dating back to when we moved to this house in 1992! EDT and I'm delighted to say it's in perfect nick and not that different to today's EDT... Either my nose is wrong today or any reformulations have been tres sympathetic

    in my opinion it smells great on a man. Chanel No. 5 was actually the first Women's Perfume that i purchased for myself. i love the strength of it's scent, and after testing it out before buying it, i was very excited how it lasted on me for 8+ hours. I applied it today at 8:30am, and I can smell it on myself now.

    My favorite sync!
    Since I was (and still am) traveling, I decided to take some samples to give them a Yay or Nay. By now I wore Baghari, and it's a yay, and Champagne de Bois which in the end is a nay for me. But now I am really ready to take a shower and then shower myself in the aldehyde SOTE!!

    Forgot the sync yesterday so I'm sporting Mitsouko today. I have a love-hate relationship with this one. It may be a tad too old school for me.
