    Now for this week, I have quite a the short list! I'm tempted by a couple of my samples from Atelier Cologne, but I also have some super small bottles of Halfeti & As Sawira that don't get an outing as much as they ought. . .
    My current rotation:
    Vetivers: Root of all Goodness by Parterre & Autumn 19 by Ffern
    Skin scents: Shermine by Pierre Guillaume & Goddess by Lush
    Work horses: Magnetica by Voronoi, Paithaini by Penhaligons & 154 by Jo Malone

    Ha, you beat me to it!

    l have plenty of choices for this week, but as l'll be away from home l'll only have a small selection of decants with me. Out of these, the likely candidate for me will be Allure.

    foxbins, happy Floraliental day!

    For floraliental day I chose Le baiser du dragon by Cartier - I'm not sure if it is actually classified as floriental or just an oriental/gourmand oriental, but I do get a very prominent jasmine note among all the almonds, booze, vetiver and resins. And jasmine fits with the Alien part of the theme, right?

    Happy Foxbins Day!

    An easy synch for me, as florientals are one of my favorite categories. I had a lot to pick from, went with Rochas Alchimie.

    I am wearing Joop Le Bain. This could easily be unisex and is quite
    a heady, warm scent.

    I don't think I own a single bottle I'd identify as a floriental. Which says something about my tolerance for incense and resins, I guess.

    If anybody sees one in my wardrobe that would qualify, let me know and I'll wear it as a SOTE!

    Hmm, I'm struggling with this one. I have Opium and Bijan Bijan. Dune? Is that a floriental? I'm just...not sure I'm in the mood for those today.

    There's Patou Ma Liberte, which is like a floral fougeriental. Will go with that!

    My wife we getting ready for work this morning, and I noticed that she had doused herself with some Portrait of a Lady by Frederic Malle. She mentioned that she was afraid she had over sprayed, so we rubbed our wrists together, and that is how we both came to sync with POAL. I absolutely love this fragrance, and it makes me think of her, as it is her fall and winter signature scent. There is only one catch-- it actually smells better on me that it does on her. Of course if she finds out I said that, I will deny it!

    Opium parfum today. Wish there was a wardrobe widget that would choose a scent of the day for me based on characteristics I’m in the mood for - no amber today, extra tuberose please, focus on oakmoss, etc.

    TBH, I forget what it smells like. I was just going by its note pyramid. Looked kind of floriental, to me.

    I do not have anything by Frederic Malle and do not intend to get any, so I will be sitting this one out.
    But I will be looking forward to your synchs and your thoughts about the scents.
    I have sniffed several of them and found them interesting and beautiful. I liked Musc Ravageur, Music for a While and Portrait of a Lady - will want to try them on my skin some day, too. Carnal Flower was not to my liking, but neither was Fracas by Piguet - I smelled them just as a reference. I'd like to try Noir Epices and the new Rose & Cuir, too, and I will some day.
