    for the nomination and the seconding of that NCal and Cook.bot! But, I agree with ClockworkAlice that veterans should fill the slots. Yay grayspoole, Donna and Zilpha! Surely there are many yet to do weeks. See there, if I was a veteran I would know the answer to that.
    I love participating and have fun with the brainstorming so very happy to do that!

    OOPS I misspoke. That's what I get for leaving an unposted item up for 45 minutes.
    EDIT - I see ClockworkAlice may have a breakfast themed day! I think "veteran" here means "veteran perfumista" which would surely include ClockworkAlice.

    I am however, a newbie in that regard as well.

    This mood one sounds very interesting.

    I went back and looked through past syncs and found some that looked fun. Not sure how participation went for them but they are open enough to accommodate anyone’s wardrobe.

    01-19-18 - BEAST MODE COLOGNE GUY PERFUME LADY DAY -
    17-03-2017 - A character from your favorite film, what would s/he wear
    18-08-2017 - What fragrance you might wear when going drag(ie. if you were to dress as the opposite sex to your own - either way)

    Also:
    — If we are doing countries then ITALY!

    — Wear a perfume that was gifted to you - tell the story if you wish

    I am not a veteran in any way, I'm a total newbie. Much more of a newbie than you claim to be! That's why I'm saying I'd rather leave the themed user day for veterans.

    the fragrance in your current collection that you have been wearing for longest and most often (or your BN 'most worn')
    use the BN 'select a random frag from your wardrobe' and wear it (report back, especially if it was spectacularly inappropriate)

Forest-synch,The tundra / norhern Europe, your darkest rose or a rose-chypre synch, most animalic scent, a blinde buy....For cities: Cape Town,....oh and a fairytale synch

    I like all these ideas, too!

    I am not a big fan of city/country synch, but I think it would be great to scent a forest, a tundra, a desert, a savannah, a swamp, an orchard, a sea, a tropical island, a meadow, a mountain chain...

    I'm also suggesting Wear a celebrity scent day - maybe it was done before, but I don't think it was this year.

    I disagree. I think it would be great to have participants from all parts of the spectrum whether it's several decades or just getting started. It would be a pleasure to have both you and Earlyn for BN days in 2020.

    These are a bit more labor intensive -

    Double-feature. Instead of two movies you do a pair of back to back complementary perfumes.

    Creative projects can be fun -

    Perfume porn - wear your most provocative (animalic?) or favorite scent - take your best perfume bottle glamour shot of it and post it.

    Your Unicorn.

    Yes, the one you own that has been discontinued or reformulated to the point of it is nothing like it was.
    You own a bottle but know once it is finished the chance of being able to get is like finding a unicorn.

    How about a choice day called "Crush, Torrid Affair, or True Love"?

    You name three scents that fell into those categories for you, and then pick one of them to wear that day?
    This is a perfume that fires its entire staff on Christmas Eve.... This is a perfume that backs dictators and arms rogue nations at a profit. This is a perfume on trial in absentia for crimes against humanity. This perfume hasn't just violated the Clean Air Act-- it's condemned under the Geneva Protocol for its use of chemical warfare.

    Inspired by Pstoller's cat, a sync theme featuring your pet posing with a perfume bottle - that could be BN day for Pstoller.

    This one near Valentine’s Day, of course!

    I support some previous posters thoughts that this thread welcomes all levels of perfume maniacs. We need newbies and veterans alike. The beauty of this thread is, of course, that "the sync makes you think" and we all get to share our thoughts on a comment scent or theme. While I have no specific suggestions on theme days, because for the years the thread has continued the mods are doing a FAB job, I suggest that it's Ok to repeat themes from past years.
