    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..."

    I think I'm in sync with Rosarium--not that I think red or pink, because I always feel a sensation of disembodied floating and forward movement--gliding like a bird on a breeze.

    Good morning scented friends!

    No synesthesia here but Ambre et Vanille is making me feel
    warm and fuzzy. If it were a colour then maybe it would be burnt
    orange. It is a scent to lean into for sure.

    I'm synchronized today in Barbara Bui. This is a sparkling cloud of gold at the start, like a golden fog. The aldehydes at the top also have a slight fizzy sound to me, almost hissing. I don't see or hear all my scents but this one has a definite impression. Also it's pretty, and cheap, I'm on my third bottle and the overall cost for all three over the years is still under $50.

    Afternoon all!

    l have a day off, & l've only just got out of my PJs, showered & dressed, after spending the morning doing some online Christmas shopping & other stuff that needed to be sorted online.

    Synching now in Chergui: all the colours of autumn with a fuzzy, suede-like texture.

    I don't get real synesthetic experiences from scent so much as from sight. I had one profound auditory hallucination when I turned a page in a National Geographic magazine and saw a colorful underwater photo. With varied coral and a multi-colored fish, there were so many dabs of different colors that I think I couldn't take it all in in that moment, so my brain tried to interpret the image by overflowing into another of my senses by generating a sound reference. It was that "noise" of all the various instruments of an orchestra tuning up independent of each other.

    Wearing Mira Bai simply cuz it's hitting today's sweet-to-tart ratio, which is often my determinant in selecting sotd.

    Happy Friday, all! Improved enough today to want perfume. I must have gotten some Mitsouko on the bedroom carpet; I got a whiff out of nowhere early this morning and realized my nose is back on! And so was the Mitsouko craving, so that's what I've gone with. Not intentionally in sync, though this does evoke color for me; in my mind, it's peachy gold.

    In a case of "be careful what you wish for", I was offered two kittens this week. Probably 8-9 weeks old. Of course I said yes. And yes, I know I'm nuts! It's been almost 20 years since I had little ones, but I have raised enough kitties to know they'll be pains in the @&$ (and ankles!) for a bit. But man, are they cute! I'm such a sucker. We get them in the morning and can't wait!

    Thanks to Shycat's PSA, all perfumes will be put away in the closet by tomorrow. At least you were able to warn others, if not save your poor Shocking!

    Have a good day, everyone!

    As I recover from rotator cuff surgery, I choose green scents to visualize healing.

    DSH's Rose Vert VdP is my choice. From Dawn's website: "All Botanical / Natural Perfume, Australian Sandalwood, Bulgarian Rose Absolute, Bulgarian Rose Otto, Centifolia Rose Absolute, Citrus Oils, Damask Rose Absolute, Green Oakmoss, Moroccan Rose Absolute, Turkish Rose Otto"
    Small decisions, made consistently, have huge impacts. Think about what you do, be mindful of the results. Accept responsibility for your choices & do not blame others for your behavior. I speak for myself.

    You're doomed. After 6 weeks with my new little monster, I'm convinced that kitten adorableness is an evolutionary trick to keep us from murdering them. Mine is just now learning that hands are not for biting; and soon I'll have the kitchen counter training and the squirt gun to look forward to. He redeems himself by always wanting to greet me the way cats greet each other, by touching noses.

    Thanks to Shycat's PSA, all perfumes will be put away in the closet by tomorrow. At least you were able to warn others, if not save your poor Shocking!
    I did the same. Everything sitting out went into drawers. Poor Shycat: unable to be a shining example, relegated to being a horrible warning.

    I'm not in the synesthesia camp either, but I'll take a stab at it with some pumpkin-orangey Tilda Swinton Like This (thanks to Trilby). So appropriate for the season.

    Hi, folks -

    I'm not synesthetic (is that a word?), but I do tend to associate most of the perfumes I wear with colors (I almost always color-code my SOTDs). Today I wanted to go with Chanel's Beige, but to my dismay, I don't seem to have the sample I thought I had. Ah, well. It's not like I have a dearth of scents from which to choose!

    What I did have, and what I've chosen for today, is Chanel Coco.



    Got a compliment straight away, too. Nice!

    Fabulous Friday, everyone!

    Coco fragrance notes: Angelica, Mimosa, Frangipani, Mandarin, Pimento, Coriander, Cascarilla, Orange flower, Bulgarian rose, Jasmine, Carnation, Ylang ylang, Cinnamon, Orris, Tuberose, Labdanum, Ambrette seed, Opopanax, Benzoin, Tonka, Vanilla, Olibanum, Musk, Honey, Civet, Patchouli, Vetiver, Sandalwood.
    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
