    Fairly easy choice for today's synch for me. Initially struggled to come up with an idea but then the light bulb suddenly switched itself on. This is about as minimalist as it gets.

    This is an easy to wear, unsophisticated musk with a few
    florals and vanilla.

    Morning all, & Happy Birthday, dear Kiliwia!

    Jon, great choice of pic for a great scent!

    l'm getting a few things done at home today, & the heavy rain showers continue in-between bursts of sunshine.

    Fantastic Friday, all, and here's to wine o'clock!

    Ava Luxe Cardamom (single note) notes: Cardamom
    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

    Birthday greetings to the wonderful Kiliwia

    I was thinking of wearing Rose Flash. The BN directory simply lists "rose" for the notes.
    But since I have Prada Mandarine to sample, so I'll wear mandarine orange until it poopers out as I expect it will.

    Well. I guess I'm synchronized after all, in Mure et Musc Extreme.

    A little citrus at the top, but then musk and berries all the way down. Simple and perfect.

    Hello and best to everyone. Happy birthday, Kiliwia!

    In synch with Lancôme Lavandes Trianon. Equal parts candied lavender and caramelized vanilla, delightful.

    Wish you all a happy Friday and weekend!

    Good Morning everyone!

    Happy Birthday, Kiliwia!

    Tdem This Lancôme sounds lovely and delicious, I definitely need to investigate .

    Had a rough week at work, made even rougher by L'Artisan Parfumeur depressing news...I am glad I went on L'AP spending extravaganza a while back, and now I guess, my bottles are considered "vintage." Will be babying what I have left and will attempt to get backups.

    Hello all,

    I haven’t worn Cristalle since last March and I experienced a little thrill this morning when I spritzed it on. It was the salty, ashy quality on top that literally made me jump and vocalize, more of a squeak than an ah. That’s a good reaction, in case you’re wondering.

    Thank you for your condolences yesterday. It really helps.

    Happy birthday, Killiwia!

    Have a good day.
    Note to self: Choose being kind over being right, and you’ll be right every time.

    TrilbyLark, my condolences on the passing of your stepsister. I'm sorry for your loss.

    I'm wearing Tamarindo this morning, it has been so rainy and cold here I needed something tropical to cheer me up.
