    In synch in:

    Poison (vintage Esprit de Parfum) by Christian Dior



    So, this is how I had to apply this one. I took a bath this morning, so I dropped 10 drops (from a plastic squeezy-thing...I forget what you call those!?) into my entire bath and I swear the guy on the far side of my office can probably smell me. This stuff does not f*ck around.

    This afternoon I'll probably wear some Granville and tonight some of my sample of vintage Miss Dior.

    I'm twinning with Jon in Dior Eau Sauvage this morning. This one is a sly rascal -- that civet in the base.

    Rtamara, that is such a sweet story! ♥

    Sending Ineespenes a (((hug))) today.

    Happy Friday to everyone!

    p.s. Mike, I can smell you all the from Virginia, and it smells wonderful! xo

    Good going, Rtamara!Spreading the joy to another generation; that's what it's all about!

    No scent yet, other than Eau de 30 Volume Peroxide. Had to slap some haircolor over these little whities that I seem to be getting more & more of.

    Received a package yesterday from a very sweet Basenoter that gave me some relief from my Twolf Syndrome; finally discovered Quartz by Molyneux! I am in love and feel like such a jerk for having missed out on it all these years. Reminds me a little of Cristalle, definite similarities as well as its own unique qualities and IMO, just as good. I don't think this qualifies as being cured of TS, not a new release after all, just a classic I had missed. Don't think there is a cure, anyway but this is a very welcome remission! Will be in Quartz as soon as the haircolor fumes clear out.

    Oh, Quartz is so much better, imo ...and I think that's saying something, as much as I love Chanel and all. (Molyneux is a great house, though - definitely worth exploring!) Congratulations on your new discovery - you're going to need a full bottle, I'm sure!

    Evangeline, I have one in my Amazon cart already! I can be very decisive about my frags! There is something about Quartz that Cristalle doesn't quite have, more rounded and full-bodied, maybe? Certainly a "friendlier" fragrance to my nose. It's fantastic; I am so pleased!

    Good for you - new discoveries are so fun! I've always found Cristalle a bit too sharp and bitter, and somehow mean ...not that it's not beautiful, but you're right, Quartz is definitely friendlier. And so chic! I think it's one of the most quintessentially stylish and casually chic fragrances available.

    Maybe I'll wear some Poison later. I'm always in the mood for some Poison.

    ^^ In fact, that is very close to where I live. I'm honest - the Austrian reds I like cost 20+ Euros, which is too expensive (unless special occasions justify it). So, I ususally go astray... I've been so very French recently! Anyway, cheers my friend!

    Good afternoon all!

    I'm wearing Mandorlo di Sicilia-- it's a beautiful, sunny and relatively warm day here. I love how we more or less bypassed winter this year. El Niño is the reason, I believe.

    Eau de haircolor is truly un-lovely stuff, isn't it? My house stinks but as I used to do this for a living, it would be silly to spend that perfume money on a colorist!

    Quartz is an excellent ripe fruits and spring flowers in a luxuriously soft leather bag type of chypre. Will this be in your box of citric greens, Alityke? I'm stalking that thread; I'm as ready for it to get going as you are! I hope you will be trying Quartz, it's so good I will definitely be ordering that bottle. Evangeline said it; this is chic.

    I believe it will be PL. So difficult to get in Northern England, I've never seen it on sale. It is available on Amazon.co.uk though so if I fall hard a FB is obtainable. I fear others will be impossible to find if I fall for there charms.

    That 20 20 peroxide is a deeply unattractive smell but the results are worth it. The result perfectly matches those natural white highlights...lol. I don't cover those whiteys I get more put in deliberately.

    Oh and the house and I smell fabulous wearing the drops from some vintage Poison I've been decanting

    Quartz is in the same family as Le Parfum de Therese, per Hillaire, and she is right I think.

    I'm wearing Chanel No. 5 edt this afternoon. I have such a love/hate relationship with this particular formulation. Sometimes it goes metallic and sour on me, and at other times (like today) it is wonderful. I don't know, just when I was going to purge this now I think I'll keep it.

    I am sadly Poison deprived. I once loved Tendre Poison, once hated original Poison - until around 2000 when I tried it again and decided it was great, never tried Hypnotic Poison (imagine? what's wrong with me!), and I don't think Pure Poison is for me. Midnight Poison is not for me, but I'm not sure. I need to do a Poison sniffa.

    I'm also sadly Dior deprived in general. I must get up to speed. Le Duc would brain me with his sceptor if he knew.

    Some great posts today....poetic and funny

    It's a lovely day here and I opted to sync in Diorissimo. My little flacon is vintage but not sure what exact date- It's a 1 oz EDT that has a ballet pink metal cap with plastic lining and painted gold bands on the top and botton edges of cap. the frosted glass flacon sits on a 1/4 inch gold base.
    This is the EDT but I couldn't get away with wearing this at work. The strength and sillage are superb. They just don't make 'em like this anymore.
    Sync'in and Think'in in 2015!
