    I thought this, too, because obviously the root is the same as “horse,” (caballo), but actually it seems it’s also connected to the root for “chivalry,” and has more to do with knights than farmhands:

    Do you really think two bananas can provide enough scent to get you through a whole day?

    I'm also finding these geographical synchs difficult.
    This week's choices, from my Wardrobe/Samples : Tabac, Io Non Ho Mani, Eau des Baux, either tobacco or vanilla. None of which are exactly Latin-American.
    Summer rotation : Guerlain Vetiver; Etro Palais Jamais and Shaal Nur; Penhaligon's Juniper Sling; Prada Infusion d'Iris EdP.
    Summer obsessions : Knize Knize Ten; Etro Gomma; Mona di Orio Cuir; Andy Tauer Lonestar Memories; Caron Yatagan

    I'll be synching with Habanita and I'll start tomorrow.
    I'm going to a music festival and I'm not sure if I want to bring a sample with me because I'll probably won't care about perfume enough during weekend, but at least I will synch earlier. I'll dab some juice on my leather jacket though, I hope it'll stay there for a while.

    Cook.bot, you made me laugh! Can't take the mental image of HoP scenting herself with two bananas out of my head now.

    What's the Dominican Republic famous for? Cigars? Sugar?
    Sounds about right. I’ve also heard knights (I think in an interview with one of my favorite skateboarders in my childhood, Steve Caballero).
    Another slightly tricky one for me in winter. Perhaps Guerlain Homme again with its rum, lime and vetiver. I’m realizing that I’m relying on Guerlain Homme and Kyoto for a lot of my syncs

    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.

    l'm going with OSA by Note di Profumum today, for the banana-like note of ylang ylang that plays a starring role.

    Wore Aventus because I sampled Explorer on my skin yesterday, so I kind of needed to compare. I’m going to claim pineapple works for the sync.

    I went with Roger & Gallet Open, which has a very nice, aromatic, dry cigar tobacco note.

    Synced in Fahrenheit, because there's gotta be a gas station somewhere in the city where someone got sloppy with the pump.

    Last week was Fahrenheit 0 degré, done by Duchaufour, as were all of the Summer flankers.

    Cab was the man, I had a few of his posters on my wall as a kid. Most skaters I was into were the generation after him, or that transition at least. Ed Templeton, Jamie Thomas, Geoff Rowley, Chris Senn, Mike Vallely...basically anyone who rode for Flip, Toy Machine, or Zero. I thought Senn was on another level, he went faster than basically everyone and had great style.

    Bunch of skate talent came out of Australia and still does.

    Synced in Le Roy Soleil Homme (1998) because it has a bit of a tropical fruit feeling in the opening before the geranium fougère accord really takes over.

    Synching in Unum Io Non Ho Mani, for the tobacco drydown. Allegedly there is even a ylang note in the heart, which teardrop described above as banana-like.

    Might join the sync after a long (un-synced) absence, if either La Martina Hombre or Aramis by Havana (chosen from and judging based on the current personal fragrance lineup) might qualify.

    I don't enjoy animalic notes like Hyrax, Castoreum and Civet. There's a few examples that come to mind that I can make an exception to.

    Chanel Antaeus utilizes the castoreum in a way that the scent is not unpleasant in anyways.

    I think I will join with either Assenzio / Absynthium by L'Erbolario for coriander or Black Opium Intense by YSL for liquorice - both ingredients are absolutely vile and totally inedible but I enjoy the fragrances themselves.
    Or alternatively I can synch with one of the many fragrances that have ylang ylang in the notes. When I smell ylang ylang oil, all I get is a gloriously vomit inducing scent of rotten teeth and unwashed mouth, but when it's drowned out in other scents it can be okay (or unnoticeable to me).
