    In a gothic, noir mood... Messe de Minuit, original EdC. This is art. Would a perfumer today be able to bring this out? NEVER!
    A gothic mood seems to trigger a strong and fruity red... so, Zinfandel it is. Cheers!

    I have a late 90s/early 00s bottle of Eau Sauvage (I think that's about right), and I get a distinct civet note in the drydown. It's getting to the point now that I am forgetting what the old classics I once knew smelled like. Diorella from the 70s was so wonderful, I can't wear the current version. Gandhajala, that must have been fun last night.

    It's winter here and no doubt about it, and I'd like to friday synch but I wear the same ones all the time now. I don't have any particularly wintry scents, nothing with snow or winter in the name, nothing bleak or gray. Last night I wore Prada L'Eau Ambree to tutor. I hadn't worn it in such a long time, and I enjoyed it so much that I may continue with that today. I'm not scented yet.

    Agree on Nocturnes and yes, proud! That dry oil is beautiful stuff, you smell divine! I think my addiction to perfume ancillary products must be contagious! Some houses make wonderful bath&body products but many more are duds in that area. Goutal definitely gets it right!

    Very interesting, G., sounds like a fun evening! So glad you all sniffed Chypre, such a great lesson!

    I'm Foustie's sync twin in L'Eau d'Hiver today. Have a great Friday, gang!

    In sync, wearing SL Fille en Aiguilles again today - it's almost a comfort scent. I didn't pick up the association to the inspiration (supposed) for this fragrance - a pine forest in summer. If so, he was in the deep heart of the forest, eating candied fruit. The irony isn't lost I'm wearing this as my Winter scent.

    I missed the fact you were testing vintage frags yesterday, Gandhajala - how lucky you are! I'm sure it's an invaluable experience.

    Another thought - I've been reading many posts without posting myself, sort of dazzled by the different lives of the people on this forum, talking of places I've only dreamed of. It's odd how one's own life seems mundane, and others exotic, no matter what and where we're living. I have a hard time seeing my own life with any perspective, especially since I'm only doing what I was raised to do. What a broadening thing a forum such as this is, beyond the sharing of a common passion. I'm still fascinated by the fact there are people at this moment sweltering in the heat, enduring midwest storms, living and working in the largest cities in the world, engaging in perfume parties. The internet is still a marvel to me for how it brings people together that could never meet 15 years ago, with such a fertile exchange of experiences. Nuff said.

    Brava, flathorn. Well said. I, too, was marveling over the fact that you're a pilot with your own plane. Although I know that in some parts of Alaska, planes are more of a necessity than cars -- which is really amazing to me. I haven't visited Alaska yet, but I plan to in the next couple of years.

    Last night, I wore Sonoma Scent Studio Rose Volupte to bed. Rose Volupte is a reformulation of Vintage Rose and has notes of rose, plum, amber, labdanum absolute, sandalwood, cedar, vetiver, heliotrope, clove, cinnamon, oakmoss, subtle aldehydes. It's finally happened -- I found a predominantly rose fragrance that I like. Scratch that: REALLY like. I fell asleep sniffing my wrist and then proceeded to actually DREAM about sniffing my wrist! 30R, have you tried any of SSS's rose fragrances?

    I am completely unsynched today, wearing Slumberhouse Norne.

    Iodine, crossing my fingers there were no injuries.

    Sorry to hear about this. According to the news it seems to have been about 30kms North of Viareggio, but it could be felt as far away as Milan, and it mainly affected the Northern Italian Areas of Tuscany and Emilia Romagna. I hope that everyone is OK.


    Wolfie, how rude of me! My head is too full of stuff. But they were sincere congrats anyway.

    Not tonight Jon, unfortunately! Probably Sunday. I'm pleased that you are having yours though. With neeps and tatties I hope? Enjoy your dram.

    Have a great weekend all, whatever you may be doing.

    Foustie, are you having haggis for Burns Night ? - ours is simmering away, and there is an Isle of Jura single malt waiting to be uncorked later. Wine o'clock will have to be tomorrow - whisky o'clock today

    Congratulations to Twolf on the post milestone! Ginormous hugs to you!

    I'm unhappy as I continue to try the scents from the tuberose pass. It was Animale's turn but makes me smell.....I dunno, unwashed. Just not loving these. Notes for this one are: Tuberose, Neroli, Kumquat, Aromatics, Prune, Blond Woods, Immortelle.

    With this and that, I went to work unscented. Slathered myself with Udder Balm though and came back a happy camper.

    Lilybelle, I am still hunting after that version of Diorella. Please let me know if you see one.

    F.
    and JR, may I please post my favorite from Burns? Pretty please?

    Flathorn, you are great. I missed your posting, honestly, all these years. Totally agree with you. The thing that gets me most is Australia -- they are having summer down there, right now as we speak. I also went through your To Test list and I will get something prepared for you. Still the same address (PO Box ending on 07)? Because you guys from AK are like from a different universe -- nobody ships to you (CONUS only, right? Wrong!!!!!) and if they do the prices are outrageous. I think I will always help Alaskans out, let my charity start at home, OK?

    Thank you, RHM.

    Now what? I want and WILL smell like Lady E. in older First. 'Cause I can. And then, if we were to sync, I'd rather sync with her.

    Good evening girls, and boys:-)

    I love to come here too, to get ideas of new scents, to see different peoples tastes as well as weather report from various parts of the world:-) , its really fun, people come here from allover the world, BUT amazingly i see so little French people, and we talk about french perfume houses every day:-)

    Today i was wearing:
    Beloved- its all about sweet musky bit olibanum drydown, and something synthetic(synthetic civet adds sharpness but no animalic notes)
    Tuberose 3- i recovered in that warm, soft, pleasant tuberose

    Onda- man what a scent, exactly as i imagined it will be according to basenoters descriptions, i just imagined it will be sharper then it is, its vetyver, tobbaco-civet smell .....like some vintage from 1940s!.....doesn't smell modern at all, but its not hard to wear!

    Mito- oh that one is special gem, this is perfect summer scent! I feard i wont like it but i do, its not only green, citrus it is slightly sweet,

    kiki- i adore lavender and geranium! Best lavender so far for me!

    Rubj- i expected to love it, its so watery sweet gentle fruity floral, i thought i smell tuberose but this is orange flower and egyptian jasmine...and the drydown is musky, not that bad as Beloved, but today i can take no more:-) musks for some reason remind me of synthetics, these are all natural perfumes?

    Jeeez i had Miss Balmain too

    Hehehe, what is wrong with me?:-)

    Twolf, I'll be sure to let you know if/when I run across that particular one. It would have to be sealed in a box to be any good, I'm pretty sure.

    SotD was the last of a decant of Miller Haris Terre d'Iris, a nice scent for a cold snowy afternoon. I'm spending the evening indoors with a pile of books and dvds. SotE is vintage Chantilly edt. The crazy Yeti dog is very happy with the snow but I'm not going out until it melts, hopefully by tomorrow afternoon.
