    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 Friday!

    I‘m joining Roberto in Pour un Homme. I still have almost half of a huge older bottle. So wonderful in this stifling heat here!

    Hoping the best for the actual path and strength of the approaching hurricane!

    Happy Friday, all. Synching in Yves Rocher Néonatura Cocoon, which would qualify for the ZC approved expanded synch. AND I was inspired to go to eBay and purchased a small bottle of Sweet Honesty (which I wore as a teen).

    While not syncing, decided to go with an old small bottle of Bodycology White Gardenia. Could something this cheap have macerated over the years? Because it is really strong for a "fragrance mist". Pretty good bang for my quarter.

    I've remembered to check the Friday Synch and I've dug out Avon's "Little Black Dress Limited Edition" from the wardrobe for a spritz or two;-)

    This is modern, definitely, and has a criss-cross lozenges pattern on the reverse of the bottle (think thin black lines making an Argyll pattern), with a golden bottle silhouette that aligns with the name on the front of the clear glass bottle, and a clear four-sided angular cap. I'm describing it because I can't see it anywhere online so far.
    A muted musky and gently fruity scent, which is a blessing because I'm a bit warm at present!

    Since Zealot Crusader gave permission to us non-Avon-owners to sub a drugstore scent, I'm syncing in a 'bodega brand', Florida Water by Murray and Lanman. And since it's often used as a blessing water in santeria practices, I'm hoping it does double duty for our Florida family staring down the barrel of Hurricane Dorian. Robin, kbe, mikeP -- take care and stay safe!

    I'm wearing Tihota this morning. Later I'll be twins with Donna after I dig out my bottle of Avon Occur! Love that exclamation point in the name.

    Definitely I am in Sync in the fantastic Wild Country by Avon. I have two bottles. One is a mini bottle gifted to me by a buddy who knows I like fragrances. This one smells the most like the one my Dad wore, that I smelled on him all the time as a kid. It's is incredibly strong and powerful, for something called Cologne.

    For those of you that like powder (where is Shycat?!) - you'd love this.

    My dad's bottle looked like this. But my mini bottle, which today I am using up all of it (I will miss it) looks like this:



    But more even fun facts:

    ANOTHER buddy of mine, who knows I like fragrances (and didn't even know that I already owned Wild Country) gifted me this also - which is an After Shave version of the scent. And I have to be honest, the AS is as strong as the Cologne. Insane.

    The bottle is sooooo 1970's:



    I have no idea what's so "wild" or "country" about a steam boat. But whatever lol.

    My beloved Karmala ran out some time ago, so no Avon to wear. I'm in Jailia, for a happy friday scent.
