    Glad it's "compliment getter" sync Friday. I'm off to see the dental hygienist. Time to shower and then go with ... um ... oh, I dunno. Back later.

    Good morning everyone Was veeery undecided about todays synch. I rarely get compliments, but some scents still seems to stick out. It keeps pouring down snow here...( and I got no shovel to get rid of teh snow on the balcony), but in a bit of a spring mood lately, so eventually decided on #19. This seems to be my mom and aunts absolutely favourite on me. Hope you all have a great day!

    I woke up smelling wonderful this morning, no lie! I don't know what it is that smells so good, a combination of scents, one of them the last faint trace of the honeyed drydown from Jo Malone Red Roses. Or else I am hallucinating some wonderful phantom fragrance. I'm loving Red Roses lately. I have a sample but a bottle is now on my wish list.

    Also on my wish list: a blessed Good Friday, Pesach/Passover to all who observe. We're all concurrent this year (are we?). How often does that happen? Ah well, I am confused. Orthodox Easter (Pascha) is not the same date this year. It is a week later.

    Love you to bits.

    Wanted something incensey for Good Friday. After a good rummage through the decant pile I discovered an old, half-forgotten decant of Anarchy, Long Lost Perfumes' very good dupe of Donna Karan Chaos. It's even better than I remember, a smooth blend of woods and incense with a touch of smoke and spice.

    Anarchy notes include davana oil, myrrh, nutmeg, bergamot, Tibetan suede, tonka, encens, sandalwood, cistus, musk, benzoin, vanilla, patchouli

    A blessed Good Friday and a Zizn Pesach to those who observe.

    Best to all!

    Hello everyone -

    This is an easy sync for me as Tony compliments lots of my perfumes, especially the rosy ones, so I'm in Creed's Fleurs de Bulgarie this morning. We're hitting the road soon - going to Florida to spend Easter with my little niece and nephews on the beach...yay! There's a computer there so I'll probably be checking in, but if not, then I'll smell y'all sometime next week. Take care, be well, be happy! xoxo

    I know exactly what you mean, Mike. Red Roses is exactly right.

    Evangeline, have a nice Easter in Florida. Safe journey!

    Jon, It’s Wine O’Clock!! I love that. It’s not wine o’clock here yet, but soon.

    I’m finally in a SotD, EL Azurée. It reminded me of ginger ale when I was sniffing the atomizer (huffing it). This is a really good one for me, a slightly leathery fragrance that is fizzy and dry, light and breezy, with a sun warmed floral note. I can’t do Bandit and Cabochard or the bad-ass fragrances. This is as bad-ass as I get (except for Madame Jolie, which is sorta bad-ass under the demure demeanor).

    It's a glorious day. We are off to take a family outing, and I'm wearing L'Artisan Fleur d'Oranger.

    We all slept in, having taken the phone off the hook last night-- a defense agains the perennial early calls from solicitors, pollsters and banks sending automated messages offering to lower our interest rate. Of course my cell phone was on, in case Mom had a crisis, but at least the rest of humanity had to leave us alone. I may do this more often.

    My SotD is not very popular on Basenotes, but I sure have received a lot of
    compliments while wearing it. It's Michael Kors Very Hollywood. There's just
    something about this one that people seem to like, especially men. So don't hate
    this one just because it's pink, it actually smells very nice. Notes include bergamot,
    jasmine, ylang ylang, raspberry, gardenia, orris, amber, white moss and vetiver.





    Have a great weekend!

    Oh, goodness, I almost forgot to post today! And I'm out of synch! Double wammy to me.
    I almost never get compliments, but the one fragrance I have gotten one compliment on was Chanel Coromandel. So I could have worn that, but I forgot.

    So, I'm in Chanel #5 Eau Premiere. At least I got the house right.

    I've turned off the wringer on all but one back-room phone, and we've simply stopped answering the land line (which is not just our home number but my business line, too). Even though we're registered on our state's do-not-call list, we're robo-called all the time. We also get calls at inopportune hours for a Chinese food restaurant whose number is one digit different from ours.

    Well, my hygienist complimented me on my gums, but not on my perfume.

    Jon, I wish, I wish, I wish I could join you and Lilybelle for a wine-o'clock or beer-thirty confab!

    But well, I will be able to make it a SOTE and still be in sync, or so I hope.

    I woke up with a headache and a stopped up nose -- and I was terrified that I cannot smell, so I spritzed Onda EDP on my wrist. Oh, I CAN smell alright. And it's the SOTD and I am out of sync!

Somehow Opium has garnered multiple compliments, even with just a tiny spray...or perhaps because it was only a tiny spray, lol...
