    Much to absorb! I’ll have to ask Gin if he minds working on my sync day. He may demand extra treats.

    The larger one's collection, the more chances of these letters popping up. It just seems like a fun theme.

    I can do this one easily, with some of the oddball perfumes I own.

    I'm not ignoring this, just thinking...

    You can tell by my signature that choosing is not my strong suit.

    I have a couple ideas I'm thinking about.

    1. Can I do something visual? Like choose a specific movie still that people can scent? Not necessarily this image, but here's an example:

    notorious-ingrid-bergman-cary-grant-1108x0-c-default.jpg

    2. Or, since I am pretty random and choice-challenged, maybe go with the "let Basenotes Wardrobe choose your SOTD"
    Even If this doesn't end up as my theme I do hope it shows up sometime during the year.


    Both of these I think would be fun and accessible to anyone.

    I just saw this! Thanks for suggesting me, N. Cal.

    I tend to connect perfumes with fashion and visual design, so...

    Perfume that you wear with a favorite item of clothing (please describe)

    And as a vintage lover, how about..

    Tardis perfumes: wear a perfume that transports you to another place and time (please describe)

    Would any of the BNers l nominated like to choose their own theme? Those BNers were:

    ComDiva (rich orientals or classy, dress-up fragrances?)
    Kiliwia (maybe tropical florals: ylang ylang, tuberose, frangipani etc.?)
    Robin-in-FL (given your love for Mure et Musc, perhaps fruity fragrances?)
    ROBERTO
    rynegne (l need to think on these last two....)

    The first idea is great - Requires a little bit of creativity but I think it will add a little bit of fun to the selection as well.

    Neil Morris comes to mind regarding to Robin, I know she's big on that house.

    Perhaps woods & incense for rynegne?
    And for ROBERTO, vetiver or leather?

    The 2020 Synchronized Friday list is now up!

    Many thanks to everyone for contributing ideas to the upcoming sync. This year had a fairly long list of suggestions: some that were very creative while for some others that have never been done previously. By no means was it an easy process but the reward for spending lots of time and energy putting this together is that we will have an awesome list for 2020. I look forward to seeing many of you in the New Year!
