    Hello everyone and happy Friday!
    I'm synching with Cafe Chantant by Nobile from a sample. It's quite light for vanilla fragrance. Light isnt bad at all in my book, but this sample won't become a bottle when I use it up. It's pleasant, but it doesn't move me.

    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..."

    Morning all!

    l made excellent progress with the house-cleaning yesterday, & plan to get some more done today. lt feels good to do something physical after three days of sitting & writing earlier this week. And getting out my old Boston CDs to play while l work really helped me along. l'd forgotten just how extraordinary those tunes were: great riffs, vocal harmonies & guitar/organ arrangements. Still one of my all-time favourite bands! l might listen to some Journey today, as well.

    Synching today in Black Flower Mexican Vanilla by Dame Perfumery; first try from my sample.

    teardrop, what are your some your favorite songs from Boston and Journey? More Than A Feeling stood out to me from Journey.

    Don't forget the xmas tree.

    I hope all my American friends had a Happy Thanksgiving. I survived. My turkey was excellent and it's a good thing because that's all I made. Me and dear son had turkey sandwiches for Thanksgiving, and I've just now made my stuffing separately while I roasted the duck. Tomorrow maybe I'll make a vegetable. Hard to say.

    I dabbed on a little Tihota *waves to N. Cal.* to be in Basenotes sync for bedtime-- while I am wildly out of sync with the rest of the sleeping neighborhood.

    N.CAL, More Than a Feeling is Boston, not Journey! That's the only one that ever seems to get played on the radio, but my favourites (among others) are To Be a Man, Don't Look Back, & Long Time (together with the long intro track called Foreplay).

    l have many Journey favourites too, but l'd pick out Lady Luck, Still They Ride & Faithfully.

    The tree is going up next week!

    Hi, everyone!


    Not in synch, I am wearing

    Divine by Divine today.

    I usually like its classic vibe, but today it seems too much for work.


    When at home I'll also change to a vanilla perfume, probably Vanille by Molinard.

    My husband turned me on to SRV, when we started dating. Another fine musician who died too young... Kenny Wayne Shepherd was another excellent bluesman.

    Hello and best to everyone. In synch with Diptyque Eau Duelle.

    Thanksgiving dinner turned out well, if the large amount of food consumed is anything to go by. I made roast turkey (and a small glazed baked ham for those who don’t care for turkey), sage-cranberry-sausage stuffing, corn pudding, roasted Brussels sprouts drizzled with balsamic vinegar and honey, candied mashed yams, and orange-cranberry relish. And I baked pumpkin and pecan pies. I ain’t making nothin today.

    Wish you all a good day and weekend.

    Good morning all! I'm enjoying the vanilla synch very much. I'm putting lots of fragrances on my test list. Today I'm in Tihota by Indult. I think it has been slightly reformulated in recent years but it's still a wonderful "not too sweet" vanilla, and my favorite.

    I don't have any particularly vanilla-forward frags aside from Shalimar and Jicky. Shalimar's a bit "big" for first thing in the morning, so Jicky it is. I think of J as three notes: lavender, civet, vanilla, but it is, of course, much more complex than that. However my wardrobe may shape-shift, J's one of my forever fragrances.

    Never care to be on trend (we ate chili yesterday), but our tv just gave up the ghost, so I'm monitoring Black Friday and Cyper Monday prices. We're tv addicts, especially at this time of year, and we love the immersive experience of a big screen.

    For Hazel's Vanilla Sync Day, I though I might enjoy a trip far outside my wheelhouse in original Angel EDP. But I was wrong. Scrubbed it after an hour. I do sometimes enjoy smelling it on others, but it's straight-up nauseating on me.

    Instead it will be Rogue Perfumery's Derviche, whose beauty can't be denied even by a non-oriental, non-vanilla person like me. It feels as if Hypnotic Poison got a grip on herself, cut the sugar out of her diet, and put aside her trashy ways.

    Good afternoon all !. Not happy . Thanks to the French indulging in their favourite pastime (striking) our forthcoming trip to Bruges next week has gone up in smoke. Eurostar trains all cancelled on the day we were supposed to be travelling and alternative options have drawn a blank. I guess we'll just have to stock up with Belgian beer / waffles and indulge here instead.

    For the moment, merlot will do just fine. TGIF !




    In synch with L'Occitane - Eau Des Baux.

    Jon, sorry to hear about your trip. Hope you get back any money you've paid upfront, & enjoy your at-home indulgences!

    Q, sorry to hear of the demise of your TV. Hope you soon find a brand spanking new one for a bargain price!

    The cleaning is just about done, so l've downed tools to enjoy an early wine o'clock. Cheers, all!

    Thanks teardrop . Pleased to report that we won't be out of pocket as the tickets will be fully refunded, ditto the hotel. We will almost certainly re-book for early in the new year and still have a shorter working week to look forward to so it isn't all bad



    Staying in synch for the evening with Shalimar.
