    For the sync: there were just a few new releases this year that appealed to me on a personal level, and I would like to hugely thank Kiliwia and 30R. for having kept me in the know. The old fragrances that were re-discovered this year -- not entirely new to me but I started seeing their new facets (yes, I like them multifaceted and done with minute precision, most of you probably know by now , just like that VC&A ring featured in easyfish' post) -- included Sinan by JM Sinan and Guerlain Shalimar Ode a la Vanille (Hi, E.!), and it totally feels like another Sinan day as a SotD.

    Happy Friday.

    Good morning everyone Sotd is Shalimar...So not quite in synch,but at least I've really rediscovered Shalimar in 2012. Have a great day all. I'm off to work soon. Slightly nervous since I'm alone at my new job about half the shift.

    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..."

    Jon Rodgers, hellooooooo!!! So nice to see you again. We've missed you.

    LadyM, I received my decant of Une Voix Noire a couple of weeks ago, but it arrived broken. It's been filling my apartment with the most fabulous smell, though, as I await my new decant. Lush, dark, and lovely. I LOOOOOVE it!! (So, you smell wonderful today.)

    Well. Today is a red-letter day for me. Firstly, I'm in synch with my new-found love, HdP Ambre 114. It's official. I'm getting a full bottle of this one. Heaven.

    Secondly, I just received the divorce decree, signed by the judge. As of December 14, 2012, I will be officially not married. It's been a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooong two years, and it feels wonderful to have it FINALLY done. What a great present for the holidays! G, I will definitely be raising a glass or two tonight!

    A lovely Friday and wonderful weekend to you all!

    Not a glass-raiser, as a rule, I will be raising something this PM, with most of you, for obvious reasons.

    Another heart-warming, rather than simply statistical, thread is shaping up as SotD today.

    That Sinan is fabulous. A nurse at the home where I work (previously blessed with decants of Cabaret and 1876 from my stash) asked for a decant of it. Will most certainly comply, someone has to, right?

    Yesterday my sister passed away from advanced lung cancer. I was with her, she passed peacefully and was loved.
    Today I woke up and had a perfume accident in which I wore both Le Labo Rose 31 which was intentional since I generally reach for rose when I need comfort and freshened up with Le Labo Vanille 44 which was a mistake, but it all worked out. Tonight I am sampling Estee Lauder Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia, thanks to lovely Primrose who sent me a care package just in time without realizing how perfect her timing would be.
    I am dazed, but I do love you people and I know enough that beautiful scents support the heart through the ups and downs of life. Please don't feel heavy from my news, my sister is in a better place, and no longer suffering. She's the taller, pretty one in my avatar photo, I'm the cranky scowling little one.

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."
