    Good morning all !. Happy Birthday ClaireV .


    Day off today celebrating my parents wedding anniversary and heading out for lunch at a country hotel with all the trimmings.


    Patchouli was my initial thought for today's synch so I'm going with my very favourite rendition. SotD is Ulrich Lang Nightscape.

    Happy Birthday, ClaireV and Happy Anniversary to Jon and partner.

    The only synch-type scent I have come up with for today is
    Mary Quant Havoc. I wore it in the mid-seventies.
    I bought a silver canister off ebay around eight
    years ago and hardly ever wear it these days. It's by
    Guy Robert and starts out with a hugh dose of chemicals then settles down to a
    bright floral with a metallic note. It reminds me of Calandre a bit.

    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..."

    Happy birthday, ClaireV!
    Your reviews are the best. I wish you the best year, too!

    JON, happy anniversary to your parents! Have a great celebration.

    I'm synching with Habanita today.
    I'm thanking again for all the get well wishes for my dear Banshee-cat - and I'm sorry I didn't thank you earlier. She was quite lethargic after her neutering operation (as vet said, it was to be expected), didn't eat or drink for two days (as vet said, it was to be expected), and when she finally started drinking and nibbling on food, she peed on my bed and seemed to be very sad about it as she's normally a very clean kitty (as vet said, it was to be expected, too). So yesterday evening I was busy washing the bed linings and blankets and scrubbing the mattress with soap and water. Had to sleep on the couch and I hope the accident doesn't repeat on the couch as I'd have nowhere to sleep until the mattress dries up.
    At least she's eating and drinking already!

    Good morning everyone First of all Happy birthday to ClaireV and congratulations to Jon's parents Today is my last full day at my mom's before I travel to my bf's dad. My bf left yesterday, so looking forward to see him again For the bohemian/hippie synch I'm in Coromandel. I guess this is more bohemian than hippie, if any of them. But it's the best I could find for the theme and I like this synch, being slightly " bohemian" in style myself

    Tell Mom and Dad your BN friends send them good tidings from across the sea, Jon.

    Oh, Clockwork Kitty (nickname CK?), your mommy understands you'll be perfectly behaved when you're fully back on your feet, er, paws. We all forgive you.

    Being of the hippie generation and, ethnically, a capital B Bohemian, I could be pretty liberal in my interpretation of the sync. Reflecting on the '60s, I feel pretty confident that peace, love and happiness bloomed in psychedelic new ways for us flower children (back when grass was less than $35 an ounce). I'm wearing Happy.

    We watched our kid last night on a live broadcast of a trivia game show from Walt Disney World News Tonight. She did very well and looked so lively and funny. It would have blown my '60s mind to imagine what life would be like for me 50 years in the future.

    Thanks to a ferocious storm that passed through overnight, we're getting a brief break from the suffocating humidity, which allows me to join the Sync Day in:

    Bonne Bell Skin Musk perfume oil (1975*):



    *1975 according to Barbara Herman, but I'm pretty sure I owned this in 1972, in the tiny bottle with the gold ball cap.

    She's just expressing her displeasure with you for her vet trip. She'll get over it. My most beloved cat, who was the very picture of perfect behavior, had to move house with me four times during the 18 years we had together, and every single time we got to the new house, he peed IN MY PURSE. The only house accidents he ever had. Just the one time each, and after he'd let me know how angry he was, he returned to being a model pet.

    Cats are weird.

    Happiest of birthdays to ClaireV. What a treasure you are!

    Happy anniversary to Jon's parents. And get well CK!

    I'm synching today in April Aromatics Bohemian Spice. From a sample. I'd consider it a little heavy for summer, but it's cool and overcast so far so it's wearing well.

    Wishing ClaireV a very happy birthday, and Jon's parents a very happy anniversary. You did great with your son.

    In sync today in an unusually warm-weather-appropriate patchouli:

    Fresh Index Patchouli Pure.




    I really enjoy this one - happy to have an "excuse" (read: reminder) to wear it!

    Fabulous Friday, all - and counting the hours to wine o'clock!

    Index Patchouli Pure fragrance notes: Ginger, Bergamot, Orange, Patchouli, Cinnamon, Pimento Berry, Vanilla, Amber, Tonka, Musk.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    For the Bohemian sync, I'm wearing L'Air du Desert Marocain. It brings to mind my favorite cookbook author and food anthropologist, Paula Wolfert, who discovered her calling in Morocco back in the day:
