    Default SOTD Friday 13th of January 2012

    Gala by Loewe...for Synch Friday
    Gala Loewe was launched in 1991 as a feminine and sophisticated fragrance. Top notes: aldehydes, bergamot, green notes, lemon and rosewood. Heart: carnation, jasmine, lily of the valley, rose and ylang-ylang. Base: amber, benzoin, castoreum, labdanum, civet, patchouli, sandalwood and vanilla.

    Castoreum and civet combination smells great(after a wonderful aldehydes opening)

    Enjoy your day
    LOVE IS BEST

    I'm in synch too with Mary Quant's HAVOC created by Guy Robert.

    Havoc is a mossy, green, aldehydic chypre with an aquatic floracy
    about it. It does seem a little plasticky and over-sweet at the start
    and is obviously not as well funded as Robert's other creations (Caleche,
    Dioressence etc) but I love it nonetheless for the retro vibe it recreates for me.

    Good afternoon darlings.

    N'Aimez Que Moi - Parfum extrait - 20 sprays. Half this amount would have sufficed, normally , but double that was needed to pacify my insatiable craving for it.

    Good morning!

    Sorry, not in sync this morning. SotD is Indult Tihota. Need something calming and good.
    It's -13F and I didn't get any sleep last night, not a good combo to start the day. I hope
    everyone else has a good day though.

    Hedonist, I am always in awe when you speak about this particular Caron and how MUCH you love it.

    K., we are at -3F, but still no snow to speak about.

    Thanks Twolf. Sadly I am not in custody of the eloquent skills , like some of you harness - particularly le mouchoir de monsieur, to adequately describe the captivating charm N'Aimez Que Moi exudes.

    I will though give Larimar, on a silver salver, credit for generating my interest in historical Caron parfums.

    In synch with No. 22 a new love and new discovery for me in 2011 and my first (and only) full bottle of the exclusifs line.
    "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

    Hedonist, love the way you revel in your fragrance passions! If 10 sprays are good, 20 must be fabulous! Spray on, sir!

    Shades, hope you're feeling better.

    In sync in Lancome's Climat today. You're all smelling especially great today!

    Thanks PerfumedLady.

    Funnily enough a man hailing from the Subcontinent of India complimented how good I smelled.

    I asked if it smelt familiar and he said yes very much.
    I said it should because it's a blend of sandalwood and roses.
    Both of which are abundant naturally and used a lot in fragrance in that geographic area.

    Happy 4,000 tdem.

    I'm in MDCI Promesse de l'aube this morning. All this talk about Chanel is making me crave 31 Rue Cambon, so I will switch to that later on, so as to be in synch and in scent heaven at the same time. Take care, all.

    I'm in synch today with Chanel no 22, but sort of wish I had picked something else. It's just not working for me today ... oh well.

    Thanks, PerfumedLady, I'm feeling well enough to go out and pick paint samples. yuck. We have someone here replacing some bad siding on our house and I wasn't expecting him to be working on it this soon. I hadn't even thought about paint. I've decided not to change colors at this time, and just match what we already have: cream body with navy blue trim. (Who is surprised at the blue? lol)

    Have a good day everyone ...
