    Vrai Blonde fro ELdO today for Marilyn. This evening will be Fracas for one of Jilly Coopers heroines. The tough TV producer character who set her cap at Rupert Campbell-Black. Can't remember the characters name but Jillys description of Fracas was so wonderful I bought a bottle

    I went with Rosemary Woodhouse's Detchema - I love it so I'm always happy to wear it, but I don't believe I have anything else with a proper fictional character link.
    Dearest E....I meant no offense to Miss Scarlett., truly. I was thinking of the scene where she has made it back to Tara and pulls a raw veg out of the garden and swears she will never go hungry again. I actually forgot about the cologne gargling incident.

    And THANK YOU for reminding me of the Detchema link to Rosemary's baby. A great scent indeed.

    Yes, "So help me God I'll never be hungry again!" as she bites into a raw turnip.

    aw'righty...after some more contemplation I ended up wearing Guerlain Coriolan. I've been catching up on the silly Spartacus series and just felt like having some "roman soldier vibe" in the air around me...LOL

    So I am syncing in Mitsouko too and imagining a lovely scarred only-apron clad witch Hella hoarsely singing: "Guerlain, Mitsouko, Narciss Noir..."

    Foustie, what a clever way to sync! And Inees, I love your theme too!

    Now, I wish I would've give this week's sync more thought. But I've been very wrapped up in Blind Sniff preparations -- we just had one for jan and working on the feb one. Check it out if you have time!

    Thank you! I've never smelt any of her perfumes but now you made me curious.

    Warum, how funny! We didn't even discuss this sync at all. Very spooky (and pretty darned cool!) how we think so much alike!

    I'm way late for this as I was sick in bed for a few days. I am wearing "Let me play the Lion" by Les Nez. Although it is a Shakespeare quote, I associate with The Wizard of Oz, if only for the name. Probably because the lion character is so blatantly a human dressed like a lion.
    It is a warm and dry scent. I like the description on the Les Nez website: "Incense floating through a ray of light." Perfectly captured! It is the warmth of the sun on a cold, dry and sunny winter day. It smells of sawdust and wood chippings. So it's perfect for this weather: It is sunny outside but absolutely FREEZING!

    I'm sorry you've been sick, but glad that you have joined us after all! I just re-visited Let me play the lion yesterday. To me it's how I imagine a lion's mane would smell like, sun-heated fur with a hint of sand. Sort of like my cat's fur after he's been lying in the sun and rolling in the sand - just bigger.

    I have looked through my stash for fragrances which have a number in their name and my options for tomorrow are: Jacomo Art Collection #8, PG 13 Brulure de Rose, PG 14 Iris Taizo, Tea for Two, Five O'Clock Eau Gingembre, Miller et Bertaux #1 and Odin 03 Century. Luckily all suitable for the cold weather here so I'll let my mood guide you tomorrow morning.

    I'm wearing Five O'Clock au Gingembre. One more fragrance I should be using more often, it's perfect on this cold winter day.

    Happy sync day to you all!

    Go Gabinstyle!

    Oh I am loving all of your posts. This synch is turning out to be such a laugh! I had no idea that I had so many fragrances with numbers in their names! Gabe, do you think that there is something subliminal going on here? I could have chosen; 1828, 1876, Une Rose, Tea for Two, Chanel No 5, Iris 39, Molecule One, M7 Oud Absolu, and I have just realised that Tuers have numbers too, for example, Incense Extreme is Number 05. That is just the bottles. There are samples too, lots of Le Labo's, all with numbers, and Histoires..... and that is what I will go for later, Histoire De Parfum Ambre 114, from a sample.

    Enjoy the synch gang!

    Good Morning all. Foustie, i'm loving all of this as well. i envy you as well as everybody that has at least samples from Le Labo. ive been dying to try Rose 31. i haven't had the chance to order any samples from them yet, but i will. i hope that all of you have a great day. you all smell wonderful. for today i chose to wear Fahrenheit 32, simply because i bought it almost a month ago and i haven't opened it.

    A great day to you, too! I'll have to sniff Fahrenheit 32 sometime.
    Rose 31 was a disappointment for me. It started as a peppery rose and then it fell flat. I very much prefer TDC Rose Poivree or even Kingdom to it.

    Hey everyone -

    Happy Sync-ing, Happy Friday!! Y'all smell amazing! I also had a bunch of numbers to think about, but being on a little chypre-bender helped me to decide today's choice - Gucci No. 3 ...imho, one of the best examples of the classic chypre ever made.


    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
