    Default SOTD: Friday 30th November 2012

    Morning fragrant ones!,

    How are we this Friday? It is awful weather up here, Mr Jack Frost was busy last night! My car is solid.

    I'm not going to be in sync today (I can't believe there is only 4 more to go!)

    I'm in Parfums MDCI - Ambre Topkapi

    Hope everyone has a great Friday and weekend

    Morning all,

    I may not be synching with a gourmand, but I do smell good enough to eat (even if say so myself! hehe): Guerlain Liù.

    Wishing everyone a great Friday.

    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..."

    Good morning and TGIF . Somewhat on the chilly side here too


    Gourmands are my least favourite genre and as a consequence have very little representation in my wardrobe. However, there are still one or two that hit the spot so synching with Penhaligon's Endymion today.

    Well I thought it would be easy as pie to synchronize today, as most of my favorites are gourmand. I don't really have a *favorite* but am in Reglisse Noire along with some Coffee Coco Curl Creme both of which are lovely gourmand smells.

    Good morning everyone First of all I'm really touched by all the condolences yesterday.It's been some rather tough months lately,nd with this on top...Well,at least I got plenty of things that needs to be done, which helps me focus on something else. Sotd is Tam Dao.

    Like Jon, I don't care for gourmands at all in the main, with a few exeptions, buuuuuut, for the synch today, Aomassai.

    When I tried it the first time I was struck by a dominant hazelnut note, but today it is so much more. This is a really interesting fragrance. I begins with a pronounced burnt sugar caramel note then toasted hazelnuts, then a kind of liquorice note joins in (not anise-ey, it is like the black liquorice that you eat). The whole stays dry though which keeps interesting for me. It becomes woody in time. Really good.

    Have a lovely weekend everyone.

    Hello everyone -

    I'm playing tennis in a little while, so no gourmands for me. I was craving something lush and green and vibrant anyway, so I'm in vintage Norell ...this should work just fine.

    Y'all have a great day!

    Foustie, I think I'd like to dunk you in a cup of coffee.

    For as long as it lasts, I'm wearing two dabs of L'Artisan Vanilia. It's a little reminiscent of Jaisalmer's sweeter notes, but thankfully L'Artisan's V is not too sweet at all. This is the best vanilla scent I've found thus far, so of course it's discontinued.

    Gourmand lovers, tell us about your favorites today and tomorrow in the SnS thread.

    I know Lilybelle has given up posting here for Advent. (Gosh, I miss her.) But it also feels like our numbers are dwindling -- or is that my imagination?

    No sync, no scent at all for me. Hubby was right, I can't breathe today. Thank goodness I hustled and got a good start on that Goutal-o-rama last week; I'd feel even worse if I were behind on that. Thank you for all the get well wishes yesterday, gang! The Mr. is a bit better today and my turn is coming.

    I miss Lilybelle, too! Yes, Quarry, I've noticed our SotD thread seems to be shrinking lately. Hope it's just holiday fuss that's keeping our friends busy. You smell fantastic, btw, Quarry! For the most part (for me), if it's vanilla it better be called Shalimar. But Vanilia really is something special! What a shame it's discontinued; was a truly unique vanilla scent.

    JR, I lurrrrrrrrrve your ad!

    I love gourmands. I can do sweets and edibles, one of my (several!) crushes is Pierrrrrrrrre of Parfumerie Generale and -- trust me! -- he knows a thing or two about them tasty things. Strangely enough, I do not have anything (samples or otherwise) by PG or Frapin (another house with the fragrances tastefully and tastily done!) in the house at the moment. I do not "do" Thierry Mugler. It leaves me with a friend of mine -- Garner James Sikar. Underrated, unknown yet masterfully blended by wooznib. Jimmy, how are you doin' these days?

    Good morning everyone! I managed to remember to synch today (!) and am wearing my current fav gourmand, Frapin 1270. I have been wearing this alot in the evenings as it has turned colder, so rather interesting to smell it while at work I love this thing to bits!

    Hoping for a nice glass of red tonight, after tennis with a friend. Or two glasses

    EDIT: I see Wolfie and I are thinking alike again

    I am accidentally partly in synch today in Lutens Fumerie Turque, as promised yesterday. Hi, G! Got your nose turned this direction?

    I say only partly in synch because there's NO POSSIBLE WAY for me to have a favorite gourmand. I love all the ones I have! But Fumerie Turque is definitely up there!

    Mmmmmm, Foustie, you smell wonderful! Aomassai is another one of my favorite gourmands and sunny comfort scents, if you know what I mean.

    Cello, this is too funny -- I was torn between Frapin 1270 and Fumerie Turque this morning. 1270 is one of my new big loves, and if I don't get a FB from Santa, I'll be getting one for myself very soon. That stuff just knocks my socks off.

    EDIT: Cello, I see lots of interesting commonalities in our wardrobes. Have you tried Huitieme Art Myrrhiad and Mazzolari Patchouly or Mazzolari Lei? You might enjoy those. I love them.

    And Wolfie, too! Frapin AND PG! Love it!

    (((ineespenes))) I hope the last of the move went well and that you're surrounding yourself with loving family. Hang in there.

    In synch again for the evening and avoiding the predictable option (Rochas Man). Going with SL Jeux de Peau.





    Will shortly be joining Cello (and others ) with a welcome glass of vin rouge. Home made pizza is ready for the oven and a Spanish Rioja will be the preprandial (with another bottle on standby for during and after, naturally ).

    Synching again this evening in Prada Candy. A colleague wears it and I found it to be lovely on her, woody rather than very sweet. She was kind enough to allow me to have a decant. I am wearing it tonight and it is very nice indeed. Interestingly, it shares quite a bit with my earlier synch. PG Aomassai!.

    I'm in lots of Coco this evening, shower gel, body cream and 80s edp ...just as good as it gets.




    Congratulations Quarry - your very own Nordies! That's excellent ...although Tosa seems like an odd choice to me. But I read some of the comments and a few of them specifically mention fragrance, so this should be quite a boon for all you WI perfumistas, and Mayfair's a lot closer than Michigan Ave!

    Yes.....I got a job, one that pays me, I mean.

    Hermes Eau des Mervielles is best for work. I've been wearing it, Eau Claire & L'Amber (all flankers of the original EdM) for a couple of weeks now.

    I love it when I recognize a scent on one of the residents. There's lots of very classy older ladies here and they dress for dinner. They love to get compliments on their fragrance!

    RedHotMama, please enjoy your time with older and wiser folks. I do mine, too. One lady used to wear Soir de Paris, pre-ref. One was a huge fan of White Linen. Most of them will tell you how it is and what they want. Yesterday we were making gingerbread men and women garlands out of brown lunch bags, with sparkles, pompoms, white trims etc., it was a lot of fun. Today we celebrated someone's 88th birthday. When some of them ask why I am always happy, I answer: Because I feel being loved! (Not really true, sometimes I answer: Because I lack in the marbles department! Yeah, still remember a few years ago when I said I did not have enough marbles, one older guy remarked: They all have turned into diamonds!).
