    For SJP Stash I usually wear a long sleeve shirt or sweatshirt, not much of a sync choice but that's what I'm going with.

    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..."

    Hi, everyone!

    Like others have mentioned, I don't usually pair a fragrance with a particular outfit or piece of clothing, BUT just a couple of weeks ago, I did exactly that! It was also partly where I was going, but the outfit was also definitely one of the reasons I chose the scent I did. So I'm in sync today.

    So, when I went to NYC on a day trip to see friends and a show, wearing a vegan leather dress (!), I chose Neil Morris Fragrances Gotham. It was a perfect pairing, if I do say so myself. (And no, I'm not wearing the leather dress to work today - Just remembering how it felt to wear along with the fragrance!)



    Fabulous Friday everyone!

    Gotham notes include: Black pepper, yuzu, rose, narcissus, ambergris, myrtlewood, Russian leather, amber and labdanum.
    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

    Not joining the synch today. I'm currently wearing Slag Pile Annie by Spectral Spirits.

    Yesterday I saw a huge migration of well over 90 dozen Canadian Geese! This morning, at least 8 dozen! Yesterday's viewing is, I believe, the largest amount I have ever seen. "V's" and "W's", and "Y's", and some "X's", too! The formations were all over the place. I Hate to use the word, amazing but, it truly was!

    i am synchronized, and coordinated, in Reglisse Noire and a gray silk sweater, I love both of these and they fit together perfectly. The silk itself has a nice smell, that goes with the Reglisse, and the color of the sweater is like the color of the perfume's smell. Also jeans and converse sneakers since it's Friday!

    Good afternoon all !. In exactly the same situation as Ine with today's synch. Not really something I ever think about so I'll just sit this one out (unless I can find an appropriate dress ).

    Hello and best to everyone. Yet another who does not coordinate clothing and perfumes. It's never occurred for me to do so.

    Wearing Parfums de Marly Delina and it's lovely, a sweet-tangy fruity floral dusted with powder.

    Wish you all a great day and weekend.

    Good morning, everyone! I'm in synch with a favorite dark grey sweater and complementing scarf which smells of my lovely SotD -- since I wear my SotD with this sweater/scarf combination almost exclusively: Galop d'Hermes, which I have been wearing extensively since our meet-up in Chicago almost one year ago. Can't hardly believe it.

    I've spent the last 8 months or so dealing with some distressing personal issues, but, with time, learning, and lots of (sometimes painful) communication and love, they've been resolved, positively and happily. It feels like all parts of my life are finally in synch (see what I did there? ), and that's made all the difference.

    I've missed this community, and it's time to be back. Hugs to you all.
