    Hello there!
    Today has started better than yesterday so far, so fingers crossed.
    I am wearing Eau Ressourcante by Clarins. This scent with calming
    essential oils always centres me and makes me feel I can take on the world.

    SOTD is DSH Perfumes Au Lait, a lovely, cozy, your-skin-but-better scent with milky-vanillic accents. There's a touch of something sensual, too, like ambrette and/or musk, that keeps it from being straight foody.

    I'm in sync in Ouarzazate today - with a bit of amber oil that I bought in Morocco (in Ouarzazate, in fact) on my wrists, to double down on the theme. It is very much evoking memories of my fab trip to Morocco two years ago!

    Good morning all! Today I'm wearing a vintage perfume by Avon called Evermore as it's listed on this website. My bottle actually is named Splendour which is the same perfume with a name change made in the 90's I believe. A very spicy, skanky fragrance.

    Hi everyone!

    It's cold this morning, 30 degrees with a good coating of frost.

    Big day for me, it's 1 year today since I ended up in the emergency room. The surgery and all the major complications I had after, make me feel so thankful that I made it through it despite the odds. Something like that really make you appreciate each and every day.

    Celebrating by buying a bottle of Lumiere Noire Pour Femme, it's also my SotD. Will try to sync later.

    Have a great weekend, everyone!

    I would have joined Evangeline in Safari for Scent Synch, but I haven't had that in years. And then I thought, "what a perfect day for Antilope!". But I don't have that one either. So...I rummaged through the samples and came up with Le Maroc pour Elle by Andy Tauer. It's gorgeous. It would work better for me as an evening scent, though, as it is a super-potent floral. The Mister just walked down the opposite end of the hallway saying, "phssssssh....I can smell that stinky perfume!" I only dabbed a bit. But I stink so gooood!! (channeling Quarry).

    Because, as announced on Ix o1,

    WHITE IS THE NEW NAUGHTY FAWN

    I think today I will just wear three layers of Jicky. Since, even with three layers on, this is tantamount to wearing nothing, It comes interestingly close to wearing an olfactory simulation of the complete absence of chromatic saturation.

    Older version Van Cleef & Arpels First edp. What an incredible fragrance; the daffodils and honey are almost gourmand on me, but then the animalics cut through--resolutely old-fashioned, and the composed drama of those unremitting aldehydes! It's finally cooler and moody-dark here in St. Louis, just the way I like it and much better for perfume wearing. You can take the girl out of Seattle, etc. etc.

    Will be changing into Maroc by Ultima II for the sync. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

    MdM, I'm sorry your Jicky is so wan. Are you wearing the newest formulation because you want to break the new office personnel in gently??

    Jon, I like your synch connection!

    Kumquat, I forgot about Panthere!

    Le Maroc pour Elle is still going strong. For a while there it smelled similar to EldO Incens et Bubblegum (sp?) and also a little like By Kilian's Sweet Redemption - in other words, very sweet and floral, which I love. Then I was gettig an almondy impression. Now, it has dried down to a pleasant sort of sweet and smoky incense.

    Ha! I made the same sort of connection this morning as Jon, but rethought it when I realized Safari more perfectly fit the sync ...but as it happens, I've been craving this gorgeous Absolu ever since, so it's now my sota ...even though it really has even less of an African connection than By Man, which at least comes in a zebra-striped bottle!





    Kiliwia - congratulations, that's so great! You enjoy your gorgeous new Lumière Noir PF in the best of health! I love that one, too - such a beauty.

    That sure is a lot of Tchaikovsky, Jon - enjoy your weekend!

    kumquat - you always smell great, but something about you this afternoon seems so ...oh, I don't know ...youthful, somehow.

    Am testing Amouage Lyric Woman.

    It's lovely, but to my untrained nose which fails to interpret nuances in notes, it smells a tad similar to Ormonde Jayne's Taif and Rosine's Rose Kashmirie.

    Exquisite spicy rose, nevertheless.

    Just a couple of dabs of Bourbon French Anastasia this evening. I daren't wear anything stronger...the hubs is too close tonight, he will complain. We are having a bed-Friday-night media binge: dinner (cheese, crackers and a sliced apple), newspapers, kindlefire, laptop, TV with baseball game, we two, the dog, all together in bed. I enjoy these evenings. We only need one room to live in. Speaking of Funk...he's got a good three day one going himself. He has announced his intention to shower and shave tonight, though. And he complains about my stinky perfume!! The dog thinks he smells wonderful. She is gazing at him with adoring eyes and licking his hand with relish. Speaking of Bourbon French...I just made hotel/flight res for NOLA for Christmas week. I am going to stop by and say hello to Mary at BF, and I'm going to stop by the other places we visited last year too, Hové and Avery.
