    I think I will go with Chanel- no.19 for Lauren Bacall in "To Have and Have Not". Her first film, she was only 19 years old and she met the love of her life, Humphrey Bogart. The smoky vintage version makes me think of this film. It is in black and white and everyone is smoking all the way through it.

    Taking it down a few notches both in movie/ books and fragrance. Going to sync with BCBGirls Star as it has a strawberryish note in it. At least to my nose it does. This is to fragrance Bella from the Twilight books and movies, in which she uses a strawberry scented shampoo ( which pretty well sums up the scent). This isn't my favorite movie or book but it's a character I could come up with quickly ,and would be wearable with a light headache.
    Favorite movie is " The Slipper and the Rose" and I'd probably fragrance pair with AG Ce Soir Jamais( sp?). But I didn't want to ramp up a headache any higher with a headier floral.
    I believe this is my thousandth post ! WoooHooo!!!

    I have thoroughly enjoyed reading everyone's picks for today's synch! I love synchs like this that let you use your imagination, much more so than specific house synchs.

    Interesting that a couple of you picked Mad Men to synch with. I am slogging through the seasons and really started loving it on Season 2. I just got Season 4 in the mail and will probably start it tonight. Betsy, Christina Hendricks was on the cover of Health magazine a couple months ago and mentioned that Serge Lutens Fille en Aguilles is her current favorite fragrance. I thought that was so interesting! Who knew she was a perfumista? Someone should write her and tell her to start posting here.

    Article at: http://www.health.com/health/article...7_last,00.html

    I synched today in vintage L'Interdit thinking of Sally Jay Gorce in Elaine Dundy's hilarious and sexually liberated novel The Dud Avocado, published way ahead of its time in 1957, the same year L'Interdit was released.

    Evening synch is 1889's Jicky for Edna Pontellier in Kate Chopin's 1899 novel The Awakening, probably my all time favorite novel.

    Next synch will be easy for me. I only have two perfumes by these perfumers; Cuir Beluga (Polge) and Futur (Guichard) so it will be the latter in this heat.

    Default Synchronized Fridays 2014

    I found the perfect fragrance to synch for this week's theme! I was researching both perfumers, and I discovered that Aurélien Guichard composed Moon Sparkle by Escada. My wife bought me this fragrance a long time ago when it first hit the shelves in 2007, and although I have received compliments while wearing it, one female colleague said that "no man should EVER wear something called 'Moon Sparkle.'" To this day, she continues to tease me about it. As a result, I hardly ever wear it in fear of somebody asking me what I am wearing...(although I suppose I could just simply say, "Escada."). The notes include ginger, vodka, vetiver, floral notes, and bergamot, and I do have to admit that it does smell quite juvenile...(am am 34), but I work with kids and it is perfect for the scorching hot weather of the Arizona summer.

    Nevertheless, I also realized that this week marked the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing, so in honor of that major historic event, I will proudly announce to everyone that I am wearing a MEN'S fragrance named Moon Sparkle!

    Happy Friday, everyone!

    Now THAT must be the synch of the year! Fantastic, on so many levels.

    Thin pickings for me today. We are going to have a cloud of Dior Homme over the UK today as I join Donna and Ken. Hi Ken! Nice to see you here.

    Knit, The Bvlgari Au The Rouge is really good, isn't it?

    I didn't know that I have perfumes by Polge or Guichard - learning again. Too bad that I don't have Eau Parfumée au Thé Rouge with me, so it will be John Galliano EdP (Guichard) - but only later in the evening.

    Kumquat, I too elected to wear Bond No. 9 - Chinatown using a sample you sent to me. Thank you so much. My other choices were Burberry The Beat or Lancome La Vie Est Belle by Olivier Polge.

    Erin t
    hanks for the info on Christina Hendricks favorite being Serge Lutens Fille en Aguilles. I must go on a search.

    BRM85282, you definitely have taken the lead for Best Synch of the Year for Moon Sparkle.

    Excellent sync theme today.
    Foustie, I always enjoy wearing the red tea! Today's wearing was no exception. This evening when it faded I layered on some Bvlgari Rose over it. The Rose is not my favorite but it goes nicely with the tea scent (IMO)

    Envious of the Chinatown wearers. I love it on paper but on my skin it turns very sour.

    The only one I have from this period is Diorissimo Edt. While I love it I am not in the mood for it these days. I usually only wear it in early spring.

    This time I can join the synching crowd. I own three from that period:

    Givrine by E. Coudray
    Poivre by Caron
    Cabochard by Grès

    I will wear Givrine as SOTD and Poivre as SOTE

    Because I really like the classics I thought I would have lots from 1950 to 1959. Was really surprised to find out I only own two. They are Diorissimo and Tresor. Lanvinelle since Diorissimo is one of my favorites I would wear it anytime although I agree with you that spring is best. Will decide tomorrow which one to wear.

    Puma and Kumquat you have such unique fragrances to chose from. I'm still learning about fragrance and have to admit I had never heard of any of these. You are so lucky to have such a deep collection.

    I'm snycing with Le Parfum de Therese (Frederic Malle). According to the website, "Composed in the 50s by Edmond Roudnistka, one of the most acclaimed perfumers of the 20th Century, it was never commercially produced and remained a well-kept secret; Thérèse, Roudnitska's wife, was the only person allowed to wear it. Considered a masterpiece due to its water-fruit accord, and 40 years ahead of its time, this complex fragrance is also reminiscent of glorious perfumes of the past. A vintage fragrance that epitomizes its creator's style."

    I originally bought this for my wife, but she didn't like it and said it "smells like Betty Draper." I guess that means I could have worn this two weeks ago as well! It is clearly intended as a woman's chypre, but I think this fragrance easily veers into the unisex side by today's standards. The leather really gives is it some depth. I think it's fantastic!

    Happy Friday!

    I haven't worn the beautiful Vert et Blanc by Carven for a long time so that's for today. I will try to find the notes. It has plenty of oak moss and galbanum, I'm sure.

    Here's a nice review

    I could not pass up on the sync and wore Diorissimo to the gym. It was delightful. I absolutely love the sync which "forces" me to evaluate my collection.

    A quick perusal of my wardrobe tells me I'm utterly spoiled for choice with a even dozen options to choose from. Arrrrghh! Okay definitely 1st world problem. Cabochard or L'interdite or Jolie Madame are strong contenders.

    Well, I'm cheating a little today. I'm wearing Tresor by Lancome. It seems that Tresor was first introduced in 1952. It was re-introduced in 1990 with a formula by Sophia Grojsman. Mine is a version I would say from about 2005. So I am wearing it in tribute to the original. Maybe someday I will find an old bottle somewhere at an estate auction. In the meantime I will just have to pretend. Really love that note of apricot blossom.

    BRM5282 would love to smell that Le Parfum de Therese. Thanks for sharing the story with us.

    I loooove this sync today. After some research, I realized that I own and love quite a few scents introduced in the 1950’s. Unfortunately, I don’t actually own anything that old, but I really enjoyed looking (drooling) over the wonderful vintage bottles pictured here and on SOTD! I flirted with a few florals and vetivers, but it seems like the paralegal has allergies to some of the floral scents that I have worn (lightly!) to the office…so I nixed those. I figured Youth Dew would likely kill him off rather quickly, and he is pretty adorable and helpful, and entirely undeserving of death by YD, so I opted to keep that for SOTE. (Bf likes YD so that’s a plus too!) So after all of that deliberation, I chose the delightful Monsieur de Givenchy for my sync SOTD. I’m wearing the modern version, with notes of: bergamot, lemon, lavender, lemon verbena, hinoki wood and oakmoss. I have the vintage version with carnation and more moss, but chose this current Mythiques edition for the office, as I can’t go about sniffing myself, which would have proved inevitable wearing the vintage! Nonetheless, it is lovely and refreshing and perfectly office inoffensive!

    I don't know if it is allowed, but I am syncing with a fragrance I've already worn on a Friday sync...The One by Dolce and Gabbana (something created between 2000-2013).

    This is perhaps my favorite designer fragrance and in my top 5 favorites of all time. I think this is one of the most seductive fragrances out there. The warm, soft amber gives it a dreamy sensuality that is spiced up with tobacco and ginger. It's the olfactory equivalent of giving someone that "let's get out of here" look. I love wearing this one out on dates with my wife! My only criticism of this fragrance is it's poor performance, but when you wear it for seduction, that can actually be a good thing. The only way for someone other than the person wearing can enjoy it is when they were snuggled up close to you, and once it starts wearing off, the best way to bring it back to life it to let things heat up...

    Happy Friday!
