    I so rarely look in the FFD section, but I can't believe I have never checked out this thread. I could've - I would've - taken part in the Chanel sync. today. Next time...

    A rummage produces……. ha ha… a completely forgotten vial of Chanel 18.

    Floral, very spicy and powdery. Going to have to look this up. It isn't very me. Probably why I forgot it. Pretty though.

    Going a bit fusty on me…. reminds me of an old lady…. Oh, I am one!!!

    Yay! Managed to synch by accident again - I must have been feeling the Chanel vibe. Trying a new one for me today - Eau de Cologne from the 'exclusifs'. Very pleasant, but rather transient - fading to almost nothing after half an hour.

    Today's synch is easy - having only one by Chanel: Coco eau de toilette. I received a bottle as a present more then 10 years ago (I was never wearing it that much though I really love it) and it is still strong. Good on even a warm spring day.

    Wearing my favourite Chanel for the synch today - Cuir de Russie parfum- even though we have a gorgeous early summer's day here in Berlin.

    I'm going with the odd ball Chanel #18. It is a nutty iris with a hint of rose and musk on me. Charming, and just different enough to be very interesting. This one grew on me as I wore it more often.
    Yes, mumsy, #19 is not my favorite either, even though I adore iris! I have a small decant, but rarely wear it. I should have pulled it out today to keep trying.
    Nice variety here today!!

    EDIT: mumsy, just realized you said 18 and not 19!!! Oops. Well, nevermind then

    An easy one for me, too - Bel Respiro for my tennis this morning, since it's the Tennis Chanel and all ...but y'all probably already knew that.



    cello - that sure is the oddball Chanel ...I don't believe I've ever even sniffed No18. You make it sound like 31 Rue Cambon but with rose, which sounds very nice, indeed!

    Kumquat, I absolutely love the picture you posted with Profumum Rosae Mundi. I just love all the perfume porn. Especially the Shalimar ads from France.

    Well I've been so bad this week I didn't even keep the list up for Synchronized Friday and it was Chanel. Who the heck could miss Chanel? I was struck down with trigeminal neuralgia which causes awful facial pain. All you want to do is go to bed and pray that sleep comes. Normal pain killers don't work with it either. I'm so sorry it got me distracted. By the time Saturday rolled around and I was over it I was very embarrassed for shirking my duties. To do penance I'm wearing Chanel everyday this week except Friday when I'll be wearing the synch which is something with white flowers. I'll also wear Chanel all the next week too. So sorry I missed this.

    Hope you all had a good week.

    Oh, wow, Betsy. I am so sorry to hear about your physical issues, and certainly the pain. How awful. But I am glad you are feeling better! Please do not worry about the synch - goodness knows we all have stuff outside of this site. And I hope you enjoy your Chanel week!

    Oh no, poor Betsy! I'm sorry you had some problems, but so happy that is has cleared up! Don't be so hard on yourself ...

    So ... I'm continuing my Chanel weekend with no19. This has never worked for me, but I try it again every once in a while in hopes that I can change my mind. Nope, still not working for me. I know there are a lot of fans of no 19. I can admire it and respect it, but I'm afraid I can never like it.

    So white flowers, eh?

    It's so hot in Miami, I don't want to kill anyone at the office tomorrow (and I have to go to the car dealer before work tomorrow morning also - I could just see the mechanics face if I show up radiating tuberose).

    Maybe I'll wear some vintage Neroli EdP by L'Occitane...either that or some AA Flora Nerolia by Guerlain that 30 Roses gave me, I love that stuff and I forget about wearing it. I do have a few drops of Jardenia by JAR Perfumes left...OMG - who dares me to wear it to the VW dealer in the morning!?

    White florals will be tough.I have so many to choose from. Oddly I am craving magnolia today. Does it count as a white floral?

    Maybe I will just go for a gardenia today. It's cool and rainy so I think Fleur Nocturne will be a good choice.It's a warm white floral due to the patchouli.

    Weird one for me today. Not in the mood for big hitters which most white florals are. Picked SpaceNK In Peace, it has freesia(they are white when used in bridal bouquets).

    White florals...hummm, decidedly not my favorite note family. I think I will go with magnolia, which is white but subtle

    AdP Magnolia Nobile it is then.

    White flower fragrances can be a little scary for me to wear, but I decided to synch with Reflection Man. Although this is the least intense fragrance from Amouage, it can still be a little overpowering, but I do enjoy the jasmine and neroli.

    I'm cheating, I think. Like lanvinelle and cello, I wanted magnolia, but I've got my usual tennis this morning, so I went with Magnolia Grandiflora Sandrine since it's a good "magnolia" for tennis, but I don't really "see" magnolias as white - they smell soft yellow to me. And also, there's hardly any magnolia in this anyway ...but magnolia grandiflora is a white, or off-white, flower, and that's what this perfume is named, after all, so it'll just have to do.




    You smell absolutely wonderful, cello!

    Me. Me. Me. Me. Us.Us.Us.Us. Do it. Do it. Do it.

    Betsy, Dear girl, I'm so sorry to hear about your facial pain. It sounds awful. Take Care now.

    Sooooooo, White Flowers, yes, hmmmm. My most neglected genre. I'm always on the look out for that gorgeous one. I know that some of you guys will do really well today. I won't win any prizes today. I must try harder. You see, I don't care for very indolic flowers, which a lot of white flowers are. I find the queen of white flowers, jasmine, to be a difficult mistress. I really like green, sort of "in the green" jasmine notes but I don't like heady indolic jasmine.I don't like heady white tropical type flowers either. Hmmmmm, OK, I recently received a gift of L'Erbolario Neroli Neroli and it is gorgeous. An Eau really, rather than a fully fledged parfum. Spritz with abandon. It's lovely.

    I also discovered White Fire by Titziana Terenzi which is like a fantasy white floral, gorgeous.

    Oh, yes, I know. I have a sample of Arquiste, Enfanta en Flor and I think that it is a really special and much overlooked fragrance, of Orange Flower.
