    I will be syncing with Creed Virgin Island Water. This was something Vernona had in her wardrobe for some time. A nice fun scent to wear by the ocean, definitely a nice fit for Split Croatia and strange how this weeks sync coincides with Croatia's chance to winning the World Cup for the first time! Two days to go!

    Also a happy Friday the 13th!

    I am in synch with a lavender perfume (Caldey Island) to remind me of
    my visit to Split in 2015. Ladies who sell lavender are everywhere on the streets there.
    Good luck, Croatia!!

    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..."

    With thanks to N.Cal and others for the inspiration (see below), I’m in sync for "Croatia" with Neil Morris Fragrances Aegean. I had no idea, I was not imagining a place so bright and beachy – So thanks for the education, too!

    Fantastic Friday, all.

    Aegean fragrance notes: Mandarin, Basil blossom, Lavender, Quince, Sandalwood, Benzoin, Pearl musk.

    ComDiva, those photos are making me depressed as I sit in a corporate park just outside of Chicago. Not the most awe-inspiring views. Haha.

    I've done a huge turnaround with this one. I went from liking it to thinking it was weird, cheap smelling...selling my small 15ml bottle a few years ago. Coming back to this one, I could easily make this my signature fragrance. So unique, you could wear it anytime...It smells divine. Once I got over the "BB Works Shampoo" thoughts and really dug into the individual notes I have't looked back. LOVE this one.

    Good afternoon all !. Back in the loop after a week trying to juggle between work related problems and caring for recuperating family. Completely exhausted and planning to unwind with a cold beer or two this afternoon and a trip to the coast tomorrow where the sea air and slightly lower temperatures will be therapeutic. Looks like the heatwave may be breaking before too long with relatively normal conditions by Tuesday. Bring it on


    Congratulations on the big 34K, Mike. You are irreplaceable and indispensable

    Not sure how to synch today. Apparently member Verona was from Croatia, and a great favorite here. And a gourmand lover. So maybe testing Gourmand Coquin is in synch? Anyhow. It's what I'm wearing.

    No sign of a storm here yet, but it's got decidedly muggy. l've finished my presentation & got a couple of chores done, so l'm enjoying an early wine o'clock & continuing to synch in lntense Tiare, picked from Vernona's wardrobe.

    Today is bright, sunny and cheerful (and hot, of course) and actually quite welcome after a couple of fussy, rainy days that culminated in some crazy storms all afternoon/evening yesterday. I made a smoothie and now I'm wearing Amor Amor and trying to find something new to read.
