    I went with the 2007 formulation of Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille for this week's sync.

    Calling for any last minute suggestions for Sync Friday 2020, I want to have to the list finalized before Christmas.

    Good morning!
    My SOTD is Cacharel Lou Lou for the synch.
    This plush scent always puts me in a festive mood.

    We have my husband's work's do tonight so I may change
    to another scent for the evening. He retired in June but they
    still asked him back for this year's Christmas event.

    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..."

    Good morning/good day, and TGIF!!!

    In sync times 1.5 today, and I'm wearing Daesin Winter thanks to an extremely generous BN-er , layered on one wrist with Van Cleef & Arpels Les Saisons: Hiver.



    Both are good, and the two are playing fairly nicely together so far - though I think I prefer the Daesin by itself.

    Fabulous Friday, everyone!

    Winter fragrance notes: Blue spruce, Pine, Black cardamom, French lavender.


    La Saisons: Hiver fragrance notes: Green Lemon, White Pepper, Cardamom, Musks.

    Good afternoon all !. CuddleCat, you have my sympathies. That must be intolerable


    I wonder how Tom Ford came up with that title ? (Edit: teardrop just beat me to it - glad I'm not the only one confused ).



    In synch with Frederic Malle - L'Eau D'Hiver.

    Definitely real it hasn't been officially released though. I found it on eBay through a trusted seller I've bought many Tom Ford fragrances from in the past. Very rosy, hints of lemon...I'm not sure what else I'm smelling aside from rose because I haven't seen anything regarding the notes yet.

    I'm wearing Santal Exotique this morning, not in the directory, before I brave the wind and rain to see the last Star Wars movie. Well, the last one I'll see, I think. I am not interested in the spin-offs.
