    Good morning,

    Yet another house twin, guys!
    I'm in Boxeuses... still slightly underwhelmed! It is too soft-spoken and the dark plum accord is too dominant until the quiet drydown. I splashed it on my chest and found the remainders on my shirt smell really good. A nice fragrance, but not daring enough, Serge!

    Happy Friday to all!

    L'Artisan Iris pallida 2007 from a tester I ordered after reading an "iris thread" here. It's simply wonderful, and I am glad it lasts max 2 hours on my skin, so I won't have to start a hopeless and expensive search all over the fragrant world to find a bottle

    For today's sync and out of solidarity with all SL fans, it is Fleurs d'Oranger on me today.

    RHM, it is some good piece of news. Don't be nervous, I will keep my fingers crossed.

    A lady at work brought us two boxes of produce she grew: peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, cantaloupe, onions and a head of cabbage. Since I will be working the whole weekend -- you see, sometimes I think we live in southern France here, as the Labor Day weekend coincides with the township celebrations complete with the parade, street dance, music bands, beer garden, cookouts, games in the park and a pie social in the library -- and the restaurant needs my feet and hands -- all this bounty has to wait until Tuesday. Meantime, I will be looking for true and trusted letscho recipe. Please PM me if you have one.

    Twolf I have no recipe for you but have been meaning to ask if you have looked at Aerosoles shoes. I have a pair of open toe 2 inch heels from their A2 line that are among the most comfortable shoes I own. Hard to believe but true!

    Shades, glad you shared you Obsession story yesterday, was so touching. Carrol must have been a fabulous person. You are very lucky to have been mentored by her.

    Creed Fleur de The Rose Bulgare for the sync today. Hug and wink to 30R. Happy Friday, gang!

    Good morning everyone!

    I'm in sync I think, in Fragonard's soft and beautiful Belle de Soleil for the continuing drama of US Open tennis! Jon and gandhajala - I meant to tell y'all that I thought about you when your little sweetie Laura Robson was beating Kim Clijsters - it looks like you have another Brit to cheer on, and she clearly has champion potential! And cello, I almost forgot about the hurricane that hit NY last year, but I do remember finding myself sniffing the air for any traces of iris perfume in the hopes of picking you out in the crowd, lol!

    Speaking of hurricanes, my parents are fine as is their home, and my home is fine, as are our kitties ...who don't like storms very much and hid from their sitters so some were reported as missing - eek! But all have been accounted for - phew! Anyway, thanks again for your concern Jon, P-Lady (congrats on your big milestone!) and 30Roses - it means a lot to me.

    So yes, perfume ...Belle de Soleil has this wonderfully soft and tropical frangipane note that I love more and more every time I wear it, and that's a floral thus I'm in sync. Y'all have a fantastic day!




    ((Shades)) - wonderful tribute, you honor Carrol beautifully.

    ps - I wore my new-to-me vintage Nahema last night ...of course it's perfectly glorious!

    Today I'm in sync wearing "La Tulipe" by Byredo. Such a pretty light floral for another 94 degree hot and humid day. I wasn't aware tulips have much fragrance and this smells more like lilacs (not listed in the notes) and freesia to me and adding light spices in the dry down. Just wish the longevity were longer on me.

    Synching in Ombre Rose L'Original de Jean Brosseau parfum for iris loveliness (okay, I admit I'm layering it over the faintest spritz possible of Aromatics Elixir... which is not capable of being faint). Enjoy the Friday. That's an imperative, apparently.

    Oops I forgot Iris is not technically "floral." Oh well, Ombre Rose is still classified as a floral!

    That's good news, Evangeline.

    Synching with PerfumedLady (I noticed you hit 1000 posts, congratulations!) and wearing FdTRB today!

    It is sunny here, should be humid and quite warm, 92 or so. Not insufferable but still the AC is on.

    But I need to get out of the house! I've felt awfully cooped up this week, dealing with my temperamental mother and daughter, and I need a good gallavant to get the mental cobwebs out. What to do, where to go?? Thinking, thinking....

    Synched in Molinard Violette & Muguet this morning. Now in the incredible vintage Femme from an incredibly generous and stylish BNer. Femme is the scent my mum wore and what an early boyfriend wore, for me a real comforting beauty. SL Arabie is nearest to the 1989 reformulaion but nothing comes close to the fleshy peachy, plummy, stoned fruitiness of the original

    For happy Friday, I pulled out a sample that I have been meaning to try all summer! Since I have only a few more weeks, I bet get rolling.

    I'm in synch in La Perla Blue today - citrus, fleurs and a faint woody patch it seems. And water I like it though, as it doesn't get sharp and unnatural on me. Perfumed, but natural - like I like it.

    Congratulations, perfumedlady, on 1000 posts!

    ((((30R)))) How about a trip to the quiet corner of CT? Sharpe Hill Vineyards in Pomfret has a really great restaurant and winery (although the wines, not surprisingly, tend toward the sweet side). :-) My college roommate grew up near Storrs, and she and I took a long girls' weekend in CT with her mom and aunt, who still live in the area, back in April. The weather was wonderful, and we had a lovely time at Sharpe Hill.

    I'm synching today Songes. I love this one!

    RHM, I'm so sorry about your migraine -- I suffered from them for a very long time until I ceased taking a certain daily little white pill. I'm glad you're feeling better. Congratulations on the call-back, and good luck. I'll be sending oodles of confident thoughts your way!

    ExtremeK! We love the Quiet Corner-- but mostly we go antiquing there; no doubt the winery would be interesting but we are a non-drinking family.

    We're going to go to Mystic and North Stonington tomorrow. The temperature will be lower by 8 degrees Saturday, a nicer day to stroll around. My husband and I and our first date in Mystic so it's always fun to go back. Plus, tomorrow is the 20th anniversary of my brother's death and I always get a bit morose every Sept. 1, so that will be a nice diversion.

    I want to apologize for not being very active these past few days or so. I've been a little busy. Today I went out with my mom, we spotted dressers that would work really well for my room [one of our neighbors put them by the curb for my mom to come look at exquisite, definitely similar to what I wanted] We came, back from our errands and they were gone, ah well. I did buy a nice Audrey Hepburn print at Walmart for 10 dollars, black and white on canvas. Audrey's my girl crush, I love her. Anyway I spent most of today cleaning and listening to Rocky Horror, dancing the time warp in my bedroom. In sync today with the Synchronized Friday testing the remaining Rosines from my samples finally. Hope everyone is having a good day

    LOL, this is too funny! I decided that a Friday sync in floral, my favorite category, will be perfect to come back to my long-missed SOTD thread.
    You can find me still through PMs and the Blind Sniff thread and that's all great, but not quite enough for me.
    So here I am, deciding that I will come in and give a vow to be fully back and give my lovely BN community some regular attention -- and look who's my MIND-sync and VOW-sync! Hey Quarry! I've been loving your DK Jasmine Essence, but I am rocking a different jasmine today -- lovely gentle unforgettable Ophelia by Heeley.

    Oh, 30R, I didn't know about your brother. I am so sorry. I must say, it seems like you're due for a good weekend. Hugs!!! I love Mystic!! Hopefully that will be just the soul salve you need.

    I just discovered that our local Von Maur (i.e., Nordstrom wanna-be) started carrying Bond No. 9's I Love NY series on August 1st. So I'm testing I Love NY For All tonight, and so far, I'm really enjoying it. It's the only fragrance with an overt pepper note that I can wear. Now, I know you all will be SHOCKED by this, but I'm loving the vanilla dry-down.

    Was wearing the classic men's Stetson I couldn't resist putting on at a drugstore to contrast with a very sharp-edged outfit. Nice for a super-cheap, but I started having a multiple-citrus reaction sneezing fit.

    Today I also tried the Gaga scent again to see if my dislike had been wrong. Found its opening even worse and the not as bad drydown more fleeting.
