    Happy Quarry BN day! Late posting, we had the power off for about 8 hours yesterday. So, 45C (113F) heat & no air conditioning! I wore No. 19 Poudre by Chanel in the morning, White Tea by Elizabeth Arden in the afternoon & in the evening, after the arrival of the cool change & after the power was back on, I wore Rose Flash by Tauerville so I was probably wearing this when PerfumedLady was wearing it - scent twins! I do wear No.19 Poudre & Rose Flash in the winter months, I haven't tried the White Tea during the winter months yet as it's new to my perfume wardrobe.

    Reporting late (MY SCHOOL HAS BLOCKED BASENOTES AS "SUSPICIOUS"!)...I am synching with Jo Malone Tudor Rose & Amber, a dark and jammy spiced rose. It makes me imagine candlelit Tudor Christmas celebrations. Happy Quarry day!

    For me, there was only one option for today's winter floral sync: Portrait of a Lady! There is nothing like POAL with it's jammy rose and earthy patchouli to cut through the cold weather!

    I seriously considered this one as well as this cuts through the cold extremely well.

    Really Does your school have a security system that blocks out websites that it doesn't recognize or considered safe?

    Another good choice that I was considering as well. Not as dark as POAL but jammy rose does work for the cooler months.

    It does. It's tricky for my students who want to write research-based arguments on gun control or legalization of marijuana. And also apparently challenging for perfumistas to post on BN.

    In other news, the other fragrance site is perfectly accessible.

    I’m honoring Quarry by wearing SL Fleurs d’Oranger today. Even though orange blossom is more a scent of Springtime, FdO is perfect for Winter wearing. It’s thick and dense with a touch of cumin for depth. I wear it year round, but I think I enjoy it the most on cold days.
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    PoaL is never an option for me. I say very little about that one because No Like At All. Rose Flash in winter is perfect, though! These cold days are when I love it most. In summer, RF usually gets a rest in favor of lighter roses and for Flash cravings, I usually reach for Amber (a particularly heat friendly amber). Rose Flash is very solidly in the winter floral category for me!

    This was a fun party! Ms.Q inspired a lovely winter garden!

    I don't either, so I'll "synch" in something with a similar name. Fleurs d'Oranger, Tubereuse Criminelle (instead of "diabolique"), or Tea Rose. (Probably the first...want to try it out in cold weather anyway.

    Just from the name and knowing your love of vanilla, I'd choose the first!

    Every time I see see "Ava Luxe," my mind mashes it to "Axe".

    I don't have any Ava Luxe, and I don't have any Axe. Will think of something!

    Ha! My brain does something similar with it, but I see "Traveluxe", the vacation package company.

    I don't have any of it either. No dress for the dance this week.

    Could we perhaps expand the synch to include any US indie perfumer this week?

    We do have an Indie day already scheduled for Cazaubon's day in March.

    I think it should be whatever everyone can agree to.

    I have nothing from Ava Luxe's sizeable oeuvre and don't really know why? Will probably opt for something from Olympic Orchids, or smellbent, or Del Rae from my collection.

    I own Cafe Noir, but I’ve left it on the other side of the world. Not sure I could pull it off as a summer scent, even with that heavy dose of camphorous lavender.
    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.

    The Vanille Jolie is the only AL I have on hand at the moment, so there's that if you'd like a twin! I also think a light dose of Tabak Kretek could be nice for work. I need to order from her again soon; as mentioned, the catalogue is massive. So many fun things to try! And I do love those extraits.

    Loosening up the sync description for this week is fine by me! Count me as a vote for whatever you wanna do!

    l have a small amount left of my sample of Ava Luxe's Nag Champa, so that's what l'm going for today. This one is on my buy list.

    l also have a much larger sample of Tuberose Diabolique, but for me it's a summer fragrance.
