    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*.

    Synching with L'Heure Bleue EdT 1998 limited edition (Deco fountain logo). Received this lovely bottle last Christmas.

    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.

    '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.'

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

    Okay after having a good think I remember being given some minis and even a full size tester by a friend who works in a department store..

    Decided on Hermes Eau Des Merveilles 15mls purse spray.

    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.
