    Default SotD-- Friday, February 1, 2013

    We're back!

    Let's see, today's synchronized Friday is:

    "The oldest fragrance in your collection (date of purchase or date of release)"

    For me that is Muguet des Bois, just because I owned it before any of my other fragrances, since age 13.

    The oldest fragrance in my collection:

    A bottle from ebay of 'Love's Deep Earthy Musk', half-used. I wore this in the '70's. It's gone a little flat, though not bad, and still has the smooth, light, chypre musk note I used to love.

    I should be wearing a precious drop of 1930s L'Heure Bleue but I'm actually wearing Gorilla Karma which smells sufficiently medicinally like embrocation to make me feel like I've had a sports massage on my poorly hip.

    Oh ... wha ...Hello! I missed you all.

    Thanks for the resuscitation, Grant. And good luck diagnosing the source of our problems.

    The first fragrance I learned to love and it remains a favorite, having emptied more than one bottle: Guerlain's 2003 limited edition, With Love.

    Original Issue
    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..."

    Hello everyone!

    House twins with Jon in Guerlain Nuit d'Amour. Pretty pink pepper and rose, what's not to love? If only it was a bit more loud...

    Also, I got a package from a very generous Basenoter yesterday and among the samples I found Lyric woman by Amouage. I tried it a long time ago and while not falling in love with it I appreciated the quality and density of the "dusty rose." However, when smelling it again I didn't recognize it at all. It is rose, but very watery without a hint of dust...Did I miss something? Did Amouage reformulate Lyric woman?

    Have a wonderful Friday everyone!

    Hello everyone, so nice to be back!

    I am out of sync. I decided to make a conscious effort to choose more widely among my collection. To that end, today's pick is Penhaligon's Endymion, a spicy oriental with accents of aromatic freshness. Wonderful stuff.

    Wish you all a lovely Friday.

    Hello,

    Its UUUU like Ubar for me:-) , to be in synch today i should have worn Dia extrait, but i have noticed my nose is sensitive to synthetic musks, and it starts beein kind of soar note after few hours......so i avoid it unfortunately....

    And Montale Cuir....as a coat fragrance am still in love with this combo:-)

    And tried some Samsara for the first time, i did not know this is jasmine scent! Loved it but then it had some terrible metalic note that was like yilang yilang but 10 times stronger that i had to wash it off, i imagined its 100 % synthetic...whish i knew if the old Samsara is 30% better?

    And i wore some Vanilia:-) oh today i loved it:-)

    Iivanita, have you tried Comme des Garcons incense Jaisalmer? I find some similarity between V's top notes and J's overall scent.

    Luckily, I had taken a peek at my wardrobe yesterday to decide on a fragrance for today's synch ... I was going by issue dates and assumed Shalimar would be my oldest. But no, it would be Habanita from 1921! It is not one I wear to work usually, but I've enjoyed very much today.

    So glad it is Friday! Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
    I've trademarked the color bleu
