    Hi Ipp and everyone! Happy Friday! I am syncing today in Vol de Nuit extrait (a few dabs) and EDT for extra body, like Quarry and Xscent taught me. I have decided that Guerlain is the house I own most bottles from, but in truth, it is pretty neck and neck with Chanel. I find I am turning more and more into a classic type of gal!

    Good morning all !. Only able to manage a quick check-in today. Shortly heading off up the M1 for a birthday bash in Yorkshire.
    Fairly wide choice for the synch - pick any one from about 20 !. Decided on a faithful old workhorse for the journey.

    Hi everyone!! My first post on this thread So, my two scents of the day, since I'm at home right now and just got some samples in the mail, so one on each wrist: Evody Reve d'Anthala- reminds me so much of Yves rocher vanilla, it started more interesting with some lovely tiare but in half an hour it settled to pure YR Vanilla (which btw costs less than 10 euro!). The other one is Byredo Pulp- reminds me of Amor amor by cacharel. So no luck for me today! Have a great day everyone!

    Welcome, Vernona! This is a pretty cool place to hang out and I am so glad to see you here! I was curious about Pulp myself, but now I think I might put that idea to the back of my mind....

    Hi Claire!! Took your advice Pulp is quite a dissapointment for me I must say...was expecting something rich and sweet and juicy...all I got is something really fruity that to my inexperienced nose resembles a lot to amor amor...Haven't checked the notes yet tough but it's not for me...it's really sweet-ishly light and fruity.

    Edit: more refined noses will probably say it's nothing like amor amor but that's really how it feels to me and I owned amor amor back in the day and used it quite a lot.

    Hi and thanks teardrop!
    I was always wondering about Honey and coconut, still haven't tried it. Pleas tell me does it smell of coconut at all, cos coconut is not listed in the notes so that put me off of sampling it earlier...

    lt's much more a honey fragrance to my nose, not really coconut, & it's very sweet. l don't think it would satisfy your coconut cravings!

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Hi kalli! Thanks for your suggestion! I already did my research on Terracotta I can only order it online cos it's not available in my country but it seems to be out of stock everywhere (at least there where they would ship to Croatia) but I've read reviews and it was mostly compared to Bronze Goddess but they say its more floral/fresh in comparison to BG that is heavier on the coconut...and to me not even BG is heavy enough on the coconut. I'm a big coconut lover, hard to satisfy

    Good morning. I am, coincidentally, in Sara Horowitz Perfect Coconut Milk today, the oil roll-on. This is coconut/almond/gardeniaish, to my nose less floral and more coconut. Definitely perceptibly smells of Co-Co-NUT, Verona this would be one to try. It is sweetened smelling but not obnoxiously so, and it settles in nicely.

    l forgot about this one! l have a sample of this stashed away. lt's a very nice, if somewhat suntan oil-like coconut. Worth a try, l'd say.

    Thanks so much for your suggestion! I've been trying to get this one to sample for quite some time now, can't remember why I haven't tried it yet, could be that I couldn't find a sample or that it just wasn't in the first line of priority gonna check today if they have it on Surrender to chance. I love almonds and coconut combos, Profumum Dolce acqua is all about almonds and coconut and it's one of my all-time most loves fragrances...

    I always miss the synch! Next week...next week. I was out a little late with a friend last night, he's a fireman...they always seem to party a little too hard for a Thursday night. Most likely because it was his "Saturday" with the crazy schedule he's on. It was good catching up with him. But, I am in need of a strong cup of coffee that a Keurig cannot provide. Missing my Chemex at home :-(

    Today I'm wearing Bond No. 9 Wall Street - such a hit or miss scent with basenoters...along with the whole line in general. But, I must wear it well because people around me absolutely love it. I always seem to get compliments and I'm not "that cologne guy" I usually go two sprays max with this one as it's rather pungent. Anywho, my office is cool right now as I got in pretty early...the seaweed-cucumber-leather goodness is sitting pretty well with me.




    I hope everyone has a fantastic Friday and wonderful weekend!!!

    Good morning dears!

    Vernona, welcome! Monyette Paris is another for you to try. Probably won't be quite coconutty enough for you but you may love it anyway. I do.

    Oh, and Mike, I ordered a bottle of Madhat Limed yesterday. So excited to try it, rynegne!

    Loving you and leaving you this morning - I am off for a corporate-sponsored volunteer project. In synch today in No.19 (what else?) modern EDP and vintage EDT.

    In Sync in:

    Bois des Iles (vintage Eau de Cologne) by Chanel



    After those initial powdery aldehydes settle down this really does smell like gingerbread on my skin. I love that part. It reminds me of my mom for some reason, I can't seem to put my finger on it but it's comforting and spicy/woody. I am so happy I took the plunge & bought this one blind. I don't get the same satisfaction from the current EdT Exclusif bottle. I enjoy that one, but this vintage EdC is so much more my style. The bottle is a splash (I decant it into a small atomizer & spray it on) and I have to restrain myself from just dousing it right out of the bottle & splashing it on eaux cologne style. I don't have enough juice to do this, but I really want to.

    Later this afternoon, I'll wear some Jersey.


    ClaireV - ooH you smell good. I almost wore Guerlain today, in fact, technically I should have worn Guerlain because that's the house that I own the most bottles of. But I was in a Chanel mood. See how much we're alike. Glad to hear you're doing the Guerlain Layering Shuffle. I do the same with vintage Apres l'Ondee parfum + EdT. To fantastic effect.
    rynegne - sitting here with a steaming cup of coffee myself - I didn't go out last night but I got to bed too late nonetheless. I personally cannot stand Wall Street but it sounds like you're enjoying it. Cheers and TGIF!
    vernona - I smelled Pulp before it was released to the world, when I was in Sweden on vacation (that's where the perfumer is from). My entire luggage reeked of Pulp from a sample that spilled in one of my shopping bags. I think it is one of the most aggressive fruit fragrances on the market. It was one of the blog reviews that summed it up nicely: remember that giant peach from James & The Giant Peach film? That's what Pulp smells like. I also must admit, it was a favorite of my ex-husband's so of course now it's not a good olfactory association. LOL Nonetheless, it's Byredo's best seller, so go figure. Oh and my favorite new coconut note is in Limed by Madhat Scents (rynegne's perfume line), although your coconut threshold is probably higher than mine. Welcome to the SOTD thread.
    Robin-in-FL - that scent sounds awesome
    ErinK - enjoy your day sweetie ((hugs)) Of course you wore No. 19 (I almost did too, the vintage EdC). It's sort of your scent, in my mind, now. If I hear it mentioned or run into a bottle in a department store, I think of you. Glad to hear you got Limed, I think you're going to love it.
    Missing Evangeline, RHM & TWolf - hoping all is well with them.

    Today is the last day for my receptionist, she's moving on to another job. We weren't close but I always see my staff as my 'kids' since I don't have any children of my own, and it will be sad to see her go.

    It's hot, sunny and looks like it should be fantastic weather today. I'm getting a haircut for lunch and doing something fun tonight - I deserve it. Maybe I'll get a massage this weekend. Some sun at the beach, perhaps. Catch up on Mad Men episodes. Maybe go on a date.
