    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 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.

    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."

    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 ...

    Had a rough day (business trip from very early morning until now)... perfumed the early morning cab with Caron's Pour un Homme. I need a bite now and some red wine. Hedonist, I am happy you are in love with this vintage style gem! I need something refreshing, so I will go with the pleasant lavender Jicky.
    I am very impressed that the En Avion thread is unlocked. Really I am! Thanks!

    Larimar, I hope you are relaxing now, back at home again, de-stressing.

    I'm finally in sync this evening in First edt. I love this one, but I don't think I'm getting the civet in here that others do. Mine is a new bottle so maybe that's why. Still, it's very nice, and I'm not sorry I bought it. I love its seamless bouquet, sparkle and lovely texture.

    Whew, I am glad to have my favorite sync going and a workshop I was giving DONE! Because of teaching hands-on activities today and running around I decided I'll test from dab samples. So I was in sync in Baghari during my talk, in sync in SSS Champagne de Bois afterwards. I'm ready to make it home, shower and wear one of my favorites to stay in sync.

    Aww, it reminded him subconsciously of home. Sweet story! Scent is so emotional, even when we're unaware of the reasons.
