Great, lots of choices!
Thread: Synchronized Fridays 2014
I too have more niche than you could throw a niche stick at. LOL
I have some niche, nice to think about which one I will wear...
“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”
― Dwight D. Eisenhower

Niche - I am wearing Let them eat cake by Tokyo Milk. It starts very sweet and smells like cake in the dry down - I think I could have synched with it also for last week's gourmand...
I decided to go rare discontinued niche. Gobin Daude Biche Dans l'Absinthe. Such a great shame this house was never brought back.
I'm in my latest niche purchase, Magnolia Grandiflora Sandrine ...a bit of a stretch to call it a magnolia fragrance, but it's crisp and chic and quite lovely, despite its relative lack of magnolia.
I ended up with Musc Ravageur.
This week for me has unintentionally been Creed Week, so I decided to continue the theme and go with another Creed-- Original Vetiver. I live in Arizona, and it is already pushing the 100 degree F mark, so this clean earthy citrus fragrance should be perfect for the day. Happy Friday, everyone!
Wearing my current favorite - Aqua Universalis Forte by Maison Francis Kurkdjian. Sure hope it's niche.
I had a broad range of things to choose from. I chose to go with a decidedly unobscure house, but a limited edition fragrance: Iris Pallida 2011 by l'Artisan Parfumeur.
OK, so many choices from my wardrobe , but.......a gorgeous Basenotes friend gave me some Tiziani Terenzi samples, so let's give them some respect today. White Fire is stunning, it's a white floral actually, but I've finished my sample, so I'll go with XIX March, inspired by the bonfires of the Spring Equinox.
I am wearing Gold Leather from Atelier Cologne today. I still consider this a niche house, although some would disagree since being picked up by Sephora ... I like this house a lot. I like the classic cologne style made modern with unusual note blends.
Gold Leather opens with a big booze-y note and saffron. The leather is very smooth and the eucalyptus is a surprising touch that keeps everything light. Gold Leather smells rich but not heavy.
Top notes are bitter orange, saffron, rum and plum;
Middle notes are artemisia and eucalyptus;
Base notes are cedar, guaiac wood, agarwood (oud wood) and leather.
I've trademarked the color bleu
I'm syncing with Dawn Spencer Hurwitz's Erbe Bergamote layered with Perfumer's Workshop Tea Rose .
Current favorite? Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmm............?.???
Well whatever I'm in the mood for I guess . Probably a Rose based scent.Looking at the early June sync I realized that I will probably be wearing an Avon as they are in the twenties in my collection any other brand I'm only up to the mid teens.Unless number of bottles is what is meant? In that case the top contenders are Dreams by Tabu , Opium, and Miss Dior.
Another one who goes by whatever fragrance grabs me on the day. Well Miller Harris Terre d'Iris was the one, perhaps because its a bright sunny day???
I'm going to take the meaning of current favorite as a fragrance that is currently in high rotation rather than my all time favorite fragrance. It would be an iris, and currently I am wearing VC&A Bois d'Iris more than my others. So that is what I am going with. this is a warm, woody iris fragrance that is just lovely.
Current favorite......hmmmmmm? This was a tough one. Nasomatto Silver Musk has been my favorite for quite a while, and I've had a few new favorites come and go. But everytime I thought about what to wear today my mind kept going back to French Lover/Bois d'Orage by Frederic Malle. So that 's what I went with today. Unfortunately my allergies are acting up so bad that I can't smell it. Just another reason this was a tough decision today.
Current favorite? That's like having to pick a favorite child! Because it is virtually impossible to pick one single favorite, I chose to pick my favorite from a given note, and since today is Good Friday, I choose incense. I ended up picking Cardinal by Heeley. This has consistently been one of my most complimented fragrances, and I like how this is a light and airy incense, compared to something like Avignon (which smells very similar but is a tad more dark).

Mine will have to be Profumum Rosae Mundi. This one just doesn't disappoint. Lasting, fresh and glorious. This is why I love fumes!

Current favourite?? So difficult, but it is spring and I picked Prada's Infusion d'Iris (eau de parfum), though I still think it is best in summer.
I'm synced for the afternoon in Mimosa Pour Moi, definitely my *current* favorite fragrance, and quite possibly my favorite mimosa perfume of all time.
I'm wearing Angel today, as my current and all-time favorite. Others may come and go, but Angel is my rock and old friend.

Current favorite is Balahé by Léonard. I cannot get enough of it's mentholated tuberose, cumin-loaded, leathery, fruity beauty. Rich and decadent, not overly sweet. Amazingly affordable on ebay, one of my best blind buys.
What do insomniac perfumers do to fall asleep? They count chypres!
Oro by Roberto Cavalli
And coming up is the house of Chanel...such a tough one for me . It will only be tough in the decision of which one to wear. Let me think...
