    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.

    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!

    Me too Donna. I don't know why, it was never a deliberate choice. Something just captures your interest and you just have to go there.......

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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).

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 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.
