    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.

    Having nothing by the house of Frederic Malle, I shall be semi-synching in Hermes Bel Ami Vetiver, by Jean-Claude Ellena who has created fragrances for Malle.
    Of course, that's just a rationalisation for wanting to wear BAV tomorrow.

    A no-decision sync for me -- Le Parfum de Therese is the only Frederic Malle I own, and only because I'm a Roudnitska completist. I find several Malle scents pleasant, but I need more than "pleasant" to justify those kinds of prices.

    As planned, l wore Allure last Friday, & l hope foxbins enjoyed her floriental day!

    The only Malle l own is Carnal Flower, plus a small decant of Une Rose that l kept when l sold my bottle. lt's a spectacular rose, but l found it too much for me & never really felt like wearing it. l'll decide later which of these to go with, if l feel like synching at all...

    I have carded samples of a few Malles, but since I'm in a rose tonight (Agent Provocateur), I might a well be in either Lipstick Rose or Une Rose tomorrow!

    Not synching today as the only Malle I have is a sample of Vetiver Extraordinaire, which I've already decided is not for me. Curious to explore this house more, but when I read the notes of the perfumes nothing really grabs me.

    Someone who loves this house - please tell me what I'm missing! What is it that you love?

    I can't locate any Malle right now. In lieu of Lipstick Rose, I'm wearing Smolderose, for the time being.

    I’m wearing Carnal Flower in the hair and body oil. It vanishes quite quickly, but it’s beautiful while it lasts.

    Weather here has finally started to cool down (despite Wednesday in the 80's...and a freak tornado!) so Musc Ravageur sounded like it would hit the spot, and it did. It's the only Malle I have a full bottle of. Well, a partial bottle, but the only thing that isn't a carded/boxed sample or decant.

    Also wearing a small spray of Angeliques sous la Pluie on my other hand. It's nice while it lasts, which isn't very long. Might spray on a little Superstitious later, it's been probably a year since I've sniffed it but I liked each time prior.
    ______

    Last week for foxbin's Floriental Day, I wore Teatro alla Scala - Krizia. A recent obsession of mine and quite a beautiful classically styled floriental. Not normally the type of thing I'd wear to work, but what can I do on Friday but sync?
    Currently wearing: Supercell by Sixteen92
