    I have posted the list for 2014 through the end of May. Suggestions are more then welcome.

    I tried to leave things open so members new to fragrance mania could participate but also have some things for more devoted fragranistas and an opportunity for novices like me to learn. When I said suggestions are welcome I meant it.

    Does anyone know how to make something a sticky?

    This is a fun idea! You should consider posting it to the Men's Discussion thread as well.

    Hi, glad to hear from you. Hope you will participate this coming Friday. The more people that post the more fun it is.

    This was started many years ago. It has always been in the Women's Fragrances section although many men participate. As the new moderator I'm just leaving it as is until I find my way around a bit more.

    The group has been very quiet during the holidays. Sure hope it picks up this Friday. I've learned so much from all of you.

    Betsy, thank you so much for taking this on! The schedule looks great, it should be a lot of fun. I think you need to ask a moderator to sticky a thread and they do it for you.

    Betsy, thank you very much for doing this! I like the list a lot, there's indeed something for everybody in there.

    A few ideas:
    Your favourite parfumeur/nose
    The house you have the most bottles from

    Looking forward to Friday!

    Great ideas, Besty!

    I like the oud or woody note day ... maybe we could do a few other days dedicated to one note? Maybe honey or saffron notes? (I suggested those as not being too odd or too common.)
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    You could do a Sadie Hawkins theme where one wears a fragrance designed for the opposite gender or a historical theme where one wears the oldest (or newest) bottle in your collection.

    Great idea! I often wear fragrances marketed to men. Should it specifically marketed to the other gender rather than unisex? Might be a bit more of a challenge?

    Either would be fine...something marketed specifically to the opposite gender or if you don't own/have access to one or have samples, then a masculine or feminine unisex fragrance would work.

    Betsy! This is terrific. Thank you so much.

    I really like the list so far. I like the idea of single note days and days dedicated to one perfumer. Sometimes I think that I don't have anything by a particular perfumer and it transpires that I do. I just wasn't aware that they created that fragrance. I like it when Friday synchs throw out a little challenge which makes you really look at your collection and samples.

    I will come back to chip in with some suggestions soon.

    Oh, Donna, don't you sometimes get what you really want for Christmas/Birthdays by gifting yourself? I sure do.

    You really want to make me work don't you? I have no idea what has honey or saffron but that is why I love this group. It helps me to learn and grow. I have added these along with everyone elses suggestions.

    Thanks so much.

    I will try to keep up. Something as a gift. I have very few of those. Maybe one or two. I can dig them out, though.

    I have a sort of vintage idea- don't know if you've done it before. How about something you have that is pre re-formulation? Or maybe something discontinued?

    I love that idea. Discontinued is pretty easy for me. So is reformulated. I know the ones that I use that have been reformulated but every time I turn around I find another one that is reformulated.

    So how would you know? And which re-formulation? Shalimar has been done at least twice since 1980 and probably more.

    I really like this suggestion a lot. Just trying to pin down how to describe the re-reformulation issue. Any ideas?

    I have added Discontinued (June) and also Reformulation.(September).

    Can't wait to see what everybody does for reformulation as it can get pretty complex if you think about it too much.

    As far as pre re-formulation, I'd say if you have a vintage version that you know has been changed- one that you like better than the new changed version, go with that.

    It would be fun to do another sync the other way round as well: a re-formulated scent of which you like the new version more than the original.

    We could also do a "flankers" Friday.

    Syncing in vintage Bellodgia from a mini I received from a fantastic friend.

    Betsy, you are doing a wonderful job, your #4 should be in every book as a great moderating example. Thank you!

    In sync, with vintage -- and often misunderstood -- Crescendo de Lanvin, a refined carnation scent with a fruity vibe and lingering drydown. Thanks to a European BN friend. *kuss und gruss*.

    Syncing with Tresor by Lancome - the newer version. A gift from a friend several years ago.

    This is my first wearing and not sure how I feel about it. But I'm glad to have it in my collection as it has become a classic.

    Done and done - see July and August. Great ideas especially the "flanker".

    I enjoy this idea of having a theme each week...although I think I'm one of the only (the only?) male that is participating.

    Today I am wearing Prada Amber Intense. Most people know not to get me fragrances as a gift, but for my birthday last year, one of my best friends gave me a Sephora gift card and this is what I bought with it. I almost wore Versace Man Eau Fraiche because it was given to me by my wife (and today is her birthday), but it was too summery for this cold January day.

    I wish the guys would do something like this. Great ideas! Today I'm wearing Riverside Dr. by Bond No. 9 which was given to me this past Christmas. One of my favorites.

    Moschino- Cheap and Chic - Hippy Fizz, Given to me by my decidedly chic SIL. The only one who has ever given me perfume. It's actually very tangy and chypre-like so she does ​know what I like! I'm amazed and flattered. I'm sorry I never tried it before.

    Oh great! Some more guys! Hello.
    I'm synching in Fendi Theorema, a gift of a mini from a kind BN friend. This perfume is always such a comfortable wear, all orangy oriental flavors and colors.

    I'm wearing Cuir Mauresque for our "Something You Got As A Gift" synch. I was hooked on Cuir Mauresque at first sniff and hopelessly lusted after it for years. A sweet santa made my Christmas in 2010 with my very own bottle! I'm so happy to have it in my collection ... it is still one of my very favorite fragrances.

    Notes: amber, myrrh, burnt styrax, incense, cinnamon, aloe wood, cedar, civet, nutmeg, clove, cumin, musk, mandarin peel, orange blossom
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Happy Synchronized Friday!

    Today I am wearing Dolce and Gabbana The One for Men (introduced in 2008) which fits the Synchronized Friday Theme of "wear something made from 2000-2013." I chose it because despite the poor performance, it remains one of my to 5 fragrances of all time. In addition, the year 2008 is significant for me because it's the year my daughter was born.

    I'm wearing the beautiful Shalimar flanker Shalimar Ode a la Vanille sur le Route de Mexique. I wish Guerlain would just widely release (and bring back) all the Ode a la Vanille editions - each and every one of them is gorgeous.

    Bottega Veneta, this is one of the moderns 00s which will stand the test of time. It really has classic written all over it. I found it totally addictive on first sniff.

    Something I haven't worn in a long time - from 2012 Jo Malone Iris and Lady Moore by Christine Nagel. Isn't the bottle beautiful?

    I like the sync. It makes me think. (Yikes. I really did not intend for that to rhyme. )

    I woke up this morning and thought, "Fahrenheit will hit the spot today." Then I remembered it's Sync Day, and Fahrenheit doesn't fit the sync, as it is from 1988. It got me thinking about what else I have that fits the sync that would function similarly.

    Not necessarily smells similarly, but functions similarly. Most of the warm, wintery scents I have are also sweet to some degree, which I didn't want today. I ended up with Michael Kors Michael for Men, which gives me the warmth and presence I wanted, without being sweet; plus I get tobacco, which is almost always welcome; and it's from 2001. Ta-da!

    A fun exercise. Thanks for the workout.

    Great choice Bonsai. I too love the Ode a la Vanille editions.

    I wish we had more people synching (is that a word?). There use to be so many. How can we get them back?

    I'm planning on wearing created in 2008 BBW Black Amethyst all layered today ,as it's been very dry and cool-cold here.And supposed to drop to 19* tonight. (((Shiver))).( I may end up spritzing Chanel's Coco Mad on top but it's also a 2008 creation so still a sync.)

    Oddly my sync post (Amen) above doesn't show me as the author or my avatar pic or anything --weird.
