    I'm going to send you some mumsy.

    Todays synch is a pleasure. The little Irish house, Cloon Keen Atelier, Terre de L'Encens.

    (I'll send you some of that too.)

    Have a good synch girls.

    Ta muchly ducky.

    I am creating for a commission today, so I am testing a very small and previously unheard of house called my own. So new it doesn't have a name yet. It is so rare there is only one bottle.... lol. It is the best one so far in the vein of a smoky cocoa chypre. I thought it was ready and 'the one' but as I wear it, I feel it still needs some mods to the base... bother!

    Ooh, I love the small house sync! One of my faves because it gives me the chance to yammer about my particular indie world darling- Ava Luxe. Had to be Pivoine Rose today, what with all the recent peony talk we've had.

    For last week's sync I did a play on name Original Liz Claibourne Realities because reality is a _ _ _ _ _ and therefore viscious.Right?
    Hmm small house.... I'll get into my samples ,probably either a Garner James one or a Tauer.(will need to get FB in both houses!)

    I'm all about small houses so this week's synch is going to be the ruin of me. I've decided I need to get my mitts on some Cloon Keen Atelier samples somehow - if only they shipped internationally! And mumsy, smoky cocoa chypre sounds incredible.

    As it is, I had a hard time choosing from all the small houses I enjoy particularly - Slumberhouse? Dawn Spencer Hurwitz? Or perhaps something completely left-field like the O'drił samples I've been making my way through slowly (come to think of it, the opening of any of these would instantly qualify them for last week's vicious sync). But after a long, exhausting week, I picked up something I hadn't worn in a while and retreated into the comfort of the awkwardly but oh-so-aptly named November in the Temperate Deciduous Forest by Jill McKeever of For Strange Women.

    Favorite celebrity fragrance....hmmmm....thinking, thinking. I only have two, Queen by Queen Latifah and Carlos Santana for Women. Both are orientals, CS being more sumery, Q more gourmand, haven't reached for either in ages. I'll go with CS as I also have the body lotion, and the coldish weather here might call for some moisturizing.

    I don't own any celeb fragrances.

    Cheapest??

    Well there is Coty Musk Oil which was free, Avon Occur £2.50, but at the same time I bought my Crown Perfumery Ess Bouquet and Eau de Russe for £2.50 a bottle years back.

    Crown Eau de Russe it is.

    Eeech..... I've got a nasty feeling that Darling by Kylie Minogue satisfies both criteria in one bottle but I just don't know if I can stomach that first thing in the morning. There is a Elizabeth Taylor White Diamond mini somewhere and i'm not sure that is much better. I cannot remember, but I know some like it. I'm really not in the mood for a screecher.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I've braved Kylie for this synch only.... I don't promise not to scrub..... and it's very pink and smells like bath cleaner with penicillin. Wow, very aspirin with flowers.

    - - - Updated - - -

    It actually doesn't screech after a moment. It goes something like this....

    .....of bathing in soapy bubblegum flowers whilst crunching on your aspirins with the tinny hangover from last night... This ought to smell quite nice but your head and eyes aren't quite opposite the holes so it misses the mark but only just. Clean, sweet and soapy with a floral nuance of chemoflower. There is a slightly damp earthy flower in here like an older vase of flowers you left on the bathroom shelf and forgot to pour the water out last week, neither old nor new so you didn't bother. There is a musky smell because you left your last nights clothes by the bath too and the smell of last nights perfume is still there but fading into a musty clothes, almost fruity smell. Not horrid at all, just very slightly unfresh when it ought to be fresh. Fading into a vanillin woodsy thing. Smells very chemical to my nose but nicer than I expected.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I am however going to scrub now..... that is enough for me....... lol

    Mumsy, you are a joy! I adore you.

    I don't think that I have any celebrity fragrances either, maybe some samples. I'll look later. But can I put a WISH on todays synch. I would like to have Sarah Jessica Parkers Lovely. I really like it. Must get it. I used to have Paloma Picasso when it first came out. Wish I had kept that one!

    My cheapest is probably Yardley Citrus and Woods.

    Poor mumsy! Didn't Kylie get you with another of her sugar bombs last year when we did this sync? Lol!

    Will join you all later in my cheapest-Yardley Royal English Daisy. Could count as a celebuscent I suppose; this was created in honor of Kate Middleton back when she was just the fiancee. Whatever. It's cheap and lovely, the real reason for my purchase. Just a simple green apple, fresh cut grass and meadow flowers type scent. Similar to Daisy but not so synthetically loud. Dries down to blah but who cares? Certainly cheap enough to refresh as needed.

    I also have a sample of Usher for Women. But no, just no.

    Okay at first I thought Oooch tough one (I have a lot of celebrity scents -comes from a lot of discounter and thrift shopping)what to choose ...-hey wait OR cheapest ? How about I combo that to eliminate options ...hmm..Okay think I've got something ....Mary-KateandAshley( Olsen twins) two from their contract with Coty .A co-worker passed it to me so it was free too!
    Here goes ..(spritz,spritz) hairsprayish alcohol,and sort of a soft tea/appleish ? scent in a sort of very light Tommy Girl sort of thing.Not bad Touch of pepper comming through(way better than the eau de WET DOG that's drifting down the hall from recently cleaned up pet) Definitely wearable though it doesn't seem to last all that long -but it was marketed to girls-tweens ,so you wouldn't WANT it to last or be strong as they'd probably hose down in it and choke all life on the planet.

    Mumsy - after that description I'm going out to get me some Kylie!

    SJP Lovely for me. It's my only s'lubscent. Liquid Satin version - bit oily-feeling on first application, but very pretty, sweeter and not as sharp as the edp. Still a vague trace 10 hours later.

    Agreed - for that reason I don't feel as if I'm actually going out of my way for a sync. Having said that, I'm picking a scent that, to my nose, has such peculiarly addictive and almost narcotic qualities that it not only presses all the right buttons but holds them right there for the next 16 hours:

    Mood lifting.... that's actually quite hard to choose. What makes my heart soar in a frag and will suffer two hospital visits without offending others? I may have to do a private wrist synch only. I think I may smuggle in with a micro drop of Houbigant Ambergris on. I adore it and it won't offend anyone. These are good hospital visits, not bad BTW.

    Oh mumsy!!!! A quick dab in the cleavage perhaps, you alone can smell it???

    Well, I was having a rumage(love that word), in a drawer and spotted my decant of SL Encen et Lavande. Had a quick sniff and wanted to get up and dance around to Starships. So that is what it will be. Lavender always gives me a happy high

    Clarins Eau Ressourcante (tranquility) is my mood lifter in a bottle (a very nice easy-to-handle
    blue one at that!)
    Notes of lemon, basil, iris, benzoin and cedar produce a feeling of calmness and purpose.
    This is a huge compliment-getter and I love to wear it on hotter days or after a bath/shower
    to help me relax. Frequent reapplication is required but it is not too exorbitantly priced so I don't mind.

    Mood lifting would be that floral glory Acaciosa by Caron, but I'm hardly about to teach 5th grade in that! Ralph Hot actually gives me the giggles, and seems more suited to the pre-adolescent vibe that will permeate my day.

    Yes, tough choice here; my perfumes are mostly happy and uplifting to my nose. Have only a few deep & dark smellies for when the mood strikes. I naturally gravitate toward cheerful scents, must be addicted to this variety of mood boosting!

    Decided to just go with my newest good mood in a bottle-Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Jasminora. Lemon, jasmine and a touch of lily of the valley. Perfect for a sunny spring day!

    My favorite moodlifter if Seville a l'Aube by LaP. Generally fleur'd'orange and citrus fragrances are turnoners for me.

    I've missed the last few weeks but am game for the sync today. And Lo- the theme is mood-lifter. teeehee. My mood could hardly be more lifted today anyway.
    1. I'm on vacation and leaving for my first trip to Oahu on Sunday
    2. My cat who has cost me a king's ransom in medical bills lately got an all clear from the vet this morning
    3. After growing my hair out what seems like forever, I'm getting the chop later today and donating the tresses to Locks of Love. I know I'll feel 20 pounds lighter

    So....what scent to wear??? It's really hot dry and smoky with terrible fires on the other side of the county so I'll stick to something light.

    I'm wearing Pink Sugar today, one of the best mood lifter scents I know. Yes, it's sweet but surprisingly more complex than it sounds. How can you NOT smile when wearing Pink sugar?

    Ok, day of the roses.... into the cupboard I dive.....

    ...and a memory grab led me to Rose Ispahan by Yves Rocher....

    Enchanting little spicy amber rose. Reminds me of rose pastille chocolate.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I had forgotten about this one. No wonder everyone wants it.
