Grogeous sample that's just arrived from TPC - Keiko Mecheri's Attar. Think I may have to buy an FB. Strictly for rose maniacs like me.
Its Friday. Hooray!
Musc Ravageur for me today.
Best to all.

Hi all. For synch Friday (an ornate scent) I'm going with Cacharel LouLou. A utilitarian bottle carrying a complex heady scent - part oriental, part floral, part gourmand, with a rough undertone. Cheap as chips too. What's not to like?
Belated congratulations to Quarry and Mr Q for your anniversary yesterday. Hope you had a lovely day.
Have a good Friday all.
Good morning! Have a fine Friday!
Le Parfum de Therese by Edmond Roudnitska, from a sample.
G The La Pavoni machine is great actually. The ritual of filling, tamping, fixing, twisting, pulling levers and turning cogs to open steam valves to froth milk can be really satisfying. Great when you have your pals round. But what a palaver when you just want a coffee!! Yeesh! Think I am going to have a Nespresso one right enough Push a button, et voila!
Comme Des Garcons "A New Perfume"...I'm getting addicted...

Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

Happy Anniversary Week to Sir and Madam Quarry
Continuing my research of Lyric Woman...also fits nicely into the synch theme today, imo.
"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
A belated but heartfelt Happy Anniversary to the Quarries!
Jon - that's wonderful news, thanks for letting us know!
SOTD is L'Artisan Parfumeur Nuit de Tubereuse
Wish you all a happy Friday!

Synching today as promised in Bois d'Encens by Armani Prive. Only 1 use left in the sample at a guess so going to have to bite the bullet and purchase as I adore it so much
Will be in Paul Smith Rose this evening... Ornate again on account of the packaging and printing

Good morning, good smelling people!
The end of my sample of Neil Morris Storm. It is raining today and this smells so good. I am torn between this and SSS To Dream for a FB. They aren't similar but they sort of fill the same category in my wardrobe, I love them both. It may hinge on who does a sale first.
Petruccijc, how is the Turquoise, with the turpentine top note? I've always wanted to try that one.
For sync Friday I'm joining Devilcat in LouLou.
Top notes: Bergamot, black currant buds, green leaves, marigold, mandarin
Middle notes: Jasmine, heliotrope, mimosa, tiare, ylang ylang
Base notes: Tonka bean, incense, iris, musk, vanilla, sandalwood
(notes from Michael Edwards' Perfume Legends)

"I love that a scent can make memories come alive."
elaborately or sumptuously adorned, often excessively or showily so: They bought an ornate Louis XIV sofa.
In sync in:
Homage by Amouage
Quite possibly the most ornate scent I've yet to encounter, this morning instead of dabbing it on from a toothpick I instead dropped 1 tiny drop in my morning bath and wow...amazingly scented (me and the bathroom!).
Tonight it will be one of my other ornate favorites: Private Collection (extrait) by Estee Lauder.
HUGS to all and T.G.I.F.!!

Doing a drive-by posting this am, and not in synch as of yet, in Replique. Take care, all.
Good evening friends. I wore Violet Blond Blond this morning and I'm in narcosis inducing spray amounts of N'Aimez Que Moi Parfum extrait. The boutique doesn't have Extrait in stock, only the EDP and spray tester of the extrait.
As promised here are pictures from my brother in law's future wife's back yard lol. It's an hour and a half north of Dubai in case anyones interested.
I had intended on taking more and better pictures but , alas , even though my car is an all wheel drive , it's not the kind that can climb sand dunes.
My brother in law was so shy, thinking about it now, my constant teasing may have caused some of the shyness, lol.*
Mr.camel basking in the *rays of the setting *sun.
And just for fun, a silhouette of Dubai city skyline. That's Burj Khalifa, tallest man made structure in the world.
I am wearing L'Heure Bleue today in respect to jujy54. She and FrouFrou have had to face the loss of family members this past week. Hugs to all in need.
If I had to chose my most ornate scent for Friday sync, it would 24 Faubourg, but I wasn't in the mood for it today anyway. It is definitely full of notes, volume, phases, and fringed with sillage.
Warm thanks to anniversary good-wishers. You guys are as sweet as American chocolate. Kumquat, your quarry reference is especially appreciated and put a smile on my face!
Welcome waves to cestrum nocturnum ... and anybody else I've missed.
While it's TGIF for many of you, it's the start of a new work cycle for me as three customers have erupted into demand mode. Now, can I maintain my Kindle Zen or will I fall back into a harried mindset? Sister PerfumedLady, is there an app for that?
Hedonist, your photos continue to slay me. What a beautiful landscape. And I love the new measurement: "Narcosis-inducing spray amounts."
In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.
Great pics Hedonist! Thanks for sharing those.
Chanel 31 rue Cambon for today, a few more sprays than usual for work, so I'm loving the smell of myself today.
Most likely not in synch, but maybe close.

Great pics Hedonist!!!
