    I'm with you, Foustie. I don't know what fragrance makes me feel specifically sexy. Scent per se doesn't arouse me sexually. It's all context for me. I'll have to think of a fragrance that brings a certain context to mind. Hmm...thinking. It could be something like Eau d'Hadrien. It could be anything. Maybe a masculine fragrance. Who knows. Thinking further: I have no idea what scent I could wear that would make me feel like I am perceived as sexually desirable. Bacon? Pumpkin Pie? Lavender? Pineapple? All those scents they experiment with. What else? If I feel sexy I will project sexy, no? Probably something extremely expensive with civet and musk, like vintage Joy parfum. Not, Tabu, which is supposed to be sexy. I think it's more cozy. Mine would have to be Joy parfum. Ok, I've worked that out, but I don't have any! Lol!

    I'm wearing Jaipur Homme today. The first time I wore Jaipur was actually the first time I wore a "men's scent" ... I felt so uber sexy wearing something masculine. I felt like a rebel, as if I had a dark secret and I liked the way I felt while wearing it. I really haven't ever lost that feeling with Jaipur.
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    I totally get that, Shadesofbleu...it is sexy wearing a men's fragrance that you love...sort of liberating...and as you say a delicious little secret. That and a man's shirt. As a matter of fact, I think it is sexier to wear a masculine fragrance than it is to wear the sexiest feminine scent.

At any rate, I believe I have several that would be just perfect for this sync, so I'll definitely be playing with y'all!

    This is easy today. I have just been totally smitten by the very front opening of Dzing. The dry down is most disappointing in contrast, but the beginning is stinky heaven. The drydown is still nice but predictable and safe. Thank you to the lovely BNer that just sent me that one. You know who you are. I drink to the elephants and cardboard beginning and will have to just keep re-applying all day...

    (((Alityke!))) Glad to see you!

    Ooh, yes Foustie, I could have gone with RM Impossible Iris, or Cuirelle if I had any left. Still being very stingy with the iris decant, so absolutely could have worn that one. These two are hands-down my favorite releases of the year and both are on my wishlist.

    My pick ended up being EL Private Collection. Not new, in fact it's from the year I was born, 1973. Many of you know I'm always intetested in trying classics I missed in my early perfumista years. This one was recommended by cacio, sample supplied by jujy and instant love for PL. What an awesome zingy green- so great it makes me sad I spent so many years without it.

    Two more very notable classic/vintage discoveries- Weil Antilope and Jean Desprez Bal a Versailles.

    I like todays theme. I have been thinking this verty thing quite a bit recently. How is it that you discover a fragrance that blows you away then a loooong time later you think, "why don't I wear that more often" Precisely. So without further ado, today I am wearing Esvedra by Laboratorio Olfativo.

    My choice was Rochas' Alchimie. I was on cloud nine when I managed to score a bottle of this discontinued beauty for a very reasonable amount. And then... haven't worn it a single time during the two years I've had it. Why? I couldn't tell because I do find it a great cold weather fragrance with it's spicy baked pumpkin vibe. So Alchimie's time has finally arrived and I am really happy it did. I am surely going to wear it more often during the winter.

    Default Re: Synchronized Fridays 2012

    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.

    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.

    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?

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.
