Best to all.
Looks like two of our fine gents beat me too it. Count me in anyway ...
In synch today with Shalimar.
Could wear this every day and never tire of it - will Monsieur Perez be joining me , I wonder ....
(Mike, sorry yesterday was such an emotional roller-coaster for you - hope you are feeling more upbeat today)

A sunny, frosty morning here; a perfect day for Carnal Flower. Off to work in a bit, but joining in the chorus of "TGIF", as l have this weekend off.
Have a good one, everyone!

Ted Lapidus Silk Way for me, wish you all a lovely Friday. (((((BNers)))))

Good afternoon, patchouli smelling, here, I've tested a few: Nightscape by Ulrich Lang, L'incroyable Patchouli by Réminescence and Mazzolari Patchouli... Now I must find out and thank the kind BN lady who suggested Mazzolari to me, a few months ago, 'cause I think I'm falling in love....

Great day to all of you!
Beware of what you wish: it might come true.
I'll probably wear Shalimar edc today for Guerlain scent synch Friday.
Sending out love to Twolf and MikePerez, and to you all. Xoxoxo

So glad it's Friday! It's been a really long week.
(((Twolf))) and (((Mike)))
In sync with Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire.
NICOLAÏ POUR HOMME
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, everyone -
And good morning to you, Larimar ...lol! Now that's a grumpy puss!
I'm in a Valentine gift from the hubs, Prada's gorgeous Infusion d'Iris Absolue ...he chose well. ♥
Y'all have a great day!
Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan
Kiliwia is back to my favorite plumerias, very eye-pleasing and smelling of a tropical vacation too. I think I would look for some tropical scents to sniff for this coming summer.
Iodine, I think the person you are looking for is ExtremeK, she is very keen on the house of Mazzolari in general and was wearing them day in and day out all autumn long.
Yesterday was an excellent day here, placed an order for teas with Amazon -- it is becoming a wonderful Valentine's Day tradition and the teas last me the whole year. Beats soda any time too!
Today's sync is the house of Guerlain. While I am partial to their time-proven classics -- booooo and harhar dee harhar, right? -- like Shalimar and Jicky and many many more -- I DO enjoy me a benchmark specimen every once in a while. Fleur de Feu, of which I think there is only two or three bottles left in the whole world.
Have a nice day, bunch. And extra hugs to those who would not push them away.
Midnight in Paris EDP
Shalimar ... from my yesterday-arrived auction bottle. It's edt, so don't know how much throw I'm going to get from it. I'm only 15 minutes in. Will certainly say more in days to come.
Please accept my tardy valentine. Work got in the way on the 14th.
Of course it's a Guerlain Sync and I didn't even check so I'm in a non-Guerlain scent. Duh.
Chaos by Donna Karan
Aptly named, for how I feel today.
"Until you practice surrender, the spiritual dimension is something you read about, talk about, get excited about, write books about, think about, believe in — or don’t, as the case may be. It makes no difference. Not until you surrender does it become a living reality in your life."
-- Eckhart Tolle
Good morning to this fine smelling group!
I'm in my decant of Lyric which arrived yesterday. Wow, is this a girlie perfume. So different from a lot of what I've been wearing lately. It's grown up, and unabashedly feminine. On me, it comes off as the perfect perfume to wear with a sleek black dress and pearls, hair up, at the symphony, with an amazing pair of black pumps. I love it, but I don't expect it will get every day wear. I'll probably save it for those special occasions.
You smell great Teardrop!
SOTD/SOTE is Gardénia Pétale. I find myself wearing this quite a bit - it is such a lovely gardenia.
A big hug for ((Mike)) today!
We have a sunny day here and the snow continues to recede in the 40s temperatures.
SotD has not been chosen yet...maybe later.

Hello, all my cuties
Larimar, you will look fabulous in the Lyric attire And the cat is all ears!
Mike, do feel better. Things settle, it is just the getting there. Hug for you today.
Twolf, you are being a good sport today on Guerlain synch
I totally bailed on the synch, almost wore SDV from a sample, but chose to stay with my favorite house - Chanel Coromandel for me today. Possibly applied a little too much for work, but they will just have to deal
And, FINALLY, TGIF!!! Wine oclock starts at 6 tonight, unsure of the flavor since it will not be my choice. It is all good though!
Well done on the tea order, Twolf! Do you have a favorite or two?
I believe I am going to lemming today and spritz myself with Mazzolari Patchouly -- partial scent twins with iodine.
Mike, as you know, the wonderful thing about Chaos is that the fragrance completely belies the name. I don't find it chaotic at all. That lovely saffron note, the incense, and then that touch of musk in the base is straightforwardly heavenly. So I hope that your day matches the fragrance itself and not its name. ((((Mike)))) Thank you for the ee cummings treat last night. It's a lovely, delicate piece.
LOL Larimar, you made me smile! No dress code, you can wear whatever you like with Lyric, but I do agree, a little black dress looks great on every woman! I will take your suggestion and try it on a warm summer evening, maybe it would be perfect for watching fireworks too!!
It's Wine O'Clock and I'm beginning to feel like the odd one out here . Larimar impersonating Dita Von Teese, G sporting his bloomers - maybe I should raid Jenny's wardrobe and dress appropriately before I uncork
Still in synch this evening with Vol De Nuit.
For those in need ....
Musc Ravageur ce soir.
Comfy clothes on and wine uncorked (Pouilly-Fumé). So glad it's Friday night.
Best to everyone.
