    For Kewarts Day, instead of taking the safe conservative pick, I want to go all out and be more daring but I might get called out at work for wearing something inappropriate at the office.

    I think I'm going to go with Tom Ford Plum Japonais tomorrow. I actually rotate my fragrances every three months to keep things fresh and seasonally appropriate (yes, I'm a little weird like that ). Anyway, I was taking out my heavier winter fragrances and was remembering how much I enjoy Plum Japonais and haven't worn it in a long time. Looking forward to seeing what everyone else is wearing tomorrow!

    I really must get round to trying that one, Puma. The bottle alone makes me lust after it!
    I have never tried L'Elephant either, believe it or not.

    Happy kewart day, everyone!

    l've gone with the only fragrance l own that l consider to be a spicy oriental: Sheer Obsession. l was lucky to get a good deal on this discontinued beauty some years ago, & l see it now goes for eye-wateringly high prices on ebay. lt really is a more sheer version of original Obsession, & it's perfect on a cold, bright day like today.

    Hurry up, kewart, grab a bottle, there are still a few around!
    You won't be disappointed. It must not be the golden bottle, as the
    juice in the normal glass bottles is the same.

    Me three, Theorema is wonderful, I had a craving today too. I think this is decidely unisex, a really nice take on a sheer-rather-than-dense oriental. The base smells guaiac-driven to me and reminds me a lot of Micallef Gaiac, but I like this more.

    I love orientals, especially spiced ones. My reference is YSL Opium Pour Homme (EDP), which I also have a small spray of on my other hand, from an older blue plastic sheath bottle. Thanks for liking spicy orientals, Kewart! It was a perfect day for them here.
    _______

    Past Synch catch-up:

    Weird bottle = Kindgom - Alexander McQueen (which would also work well for Kewart Day)



    In Memorium = Kouros - YSL a dab of early 80's vintage from a sample in honor of Jack aka FruitDiet whose reviews I enjoyed. He still keeps a blog, much of it non-perfume related.

    It don't get much spicier than this baby monster. And the cold weather's just perfect for it.
    Jungle here too! Spicy, oriental, and instantly sends me to youtube to see this (I know I've posted this before but hey, it's Friday!)

    Perhaps we can stretch pine to include other coniferous notes like fir or cedar? This might make some people's choices easier this week.

    Having recently disposed of Granville and Norne decants this is what I’m going to have to do. I think my choice will be Hinoki.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    I had the best intentions to participate today, especially since I love pine and evergreen notes in general, but I woke up with an overwhelming desire to smell like tobacco. So, I'm in Nirvana Amethyst. My plan was to wear Cape Heartache by Imaginary Authors, but the day is still young. Happy Friday!

    I don't own any pine scents so I went with hinoki. I'm wearing Geisha Vanilla Hinoki by Aroma M. It is going to be interesting to see how this scent fares in really hot weather. Today, there is an expected top of 38C (100.4F) & it's already over 30C outside. Thankfully, the inside temp is only 24C at the moment & Geisha Vanilla Hinoki is smelling great so far - very Christmasy!
