    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 have a hard time viewing a fragrance as provacative, per se. I know what gets me the most compliments and lean ins, but I can't claim that's a provacative kind of thing. I think my best bet is to go with Polo Blue, since that provokes me. Call me old fashioned.

    Good morning all !. Just a very brief check-in to wish everyone a good weekend. Only able to post from work at the moment due to our home computer being backed up and upgraded to Windows 10. When it is finished, I'll be back .

    SotD is Roja Dove Unspoken.

    When I was young, we called it "personal space", not, "social distancing" like nowadays. Actually, shouldn't it be called Public distancing?

    Spritz and dash (sort of) - In sync times two. On one wrist, twins with ine in what was my signature scent for many years, YSL Opium. On the other wrist, a fragrance I haven't ever worn "out" before because (on me) the "wallop of jasmine" (thank you, NowSmellThis!) goes a bit too, um, 'dirty': Septamanie Perfumes Pavillon des Fleurs.



    Opium fragrance notes: Mandarin, Bergamot, Plum, Hesperides, Clove, Coriander, Pepper, Bay, Pimento, Jasmine, Rose, Carnation, Lily of the valley, Ylang ylang, Peach, Orris, Cinnamon, Myrrh, Vanilla, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Myrrh, Opopanax, Labdanum, Benzoin, Castoreum, Amber, Frankincense, Musk, Tolu, Cedar, Vanilla, Olibanum, Cistus.

    Pavillon des Fleurs fragrance notes: Jasmine, ylang ylang, orange blossom, English leather, iris and lily of the valley.

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

    Neil Morris Prowl. Oh yes I am synchronized! Like Shycat, I'm not easily provoked by fragrance. But I'd call this one sexy and the musk is prominent on me.

    I guess I'm in synch today! Recent blind buy and unintentional but definitely one of the more provocative fragrances in my collection.

    Kind of synching in Love’s True Bluish Light by Ava Luxe. It doesn’t necessarily provoke provocative comments from others but I think it’s sexy as hell.
    Have a great day, all.

    Hello all,

    My SOTD is Cristalle. Today is Day 4 of workers in the house who are making repairs and painting woodwork and doors. It’s starting to look very nice.

    Have a good day.

    Feeling tired and out of sorts, will be provocative in an inconsiderate dose of Guerlain Lui.
