    Been looking forward to this sync and trying to figure out a strategy for a dozen or so bottles and samples, and I always seem to be challenged by too many choices.
    .
    So I just lined up my FB’s in order of release date and what do you know?
    Looks like Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thurs - a week of Dior takes me right up to the next sync!

    I like the way you think!

    But I see a flaw in your rankings. See how your bottle of Dior-Dior has the house name printed above the scent name? That indicates it's older than anything else there except the Miss Dior bottles.

    I'm going offsides with a "vintage" sample of New Look 1947. Great stuff. I had liked this in the boutique, but went with Vetiver on a rumor from another BNer at that LV meetup, that Vetiver was "at risk".

    Even this old sample smells fresh as if newly released. It's wonderful, and very Dior, but I will say it's utterly different from the Roudnitska Dior chapter, IMO.

    Before I scrub New Look 1947 with terrible injustice, let me say it has awesome sillage.

    Righto, thanks Cook.bot! I was thinking fragrance release date and didn’t even consider bottle date. Now I’m thinking even if the Dior-Dior is second oldest, maybe I’ll go ahead and wear it tomorrow first since there seems to be a little gathering of Dior-Dior wearers forming, and then continue on with the week,

    Wow! That line-up is almost paralyzing and perhaps this will be of no help but here goes..
    Agree with Redneck Perfumisto if the day is sunny then fruitties Dior-Dior, Diorella, Dolce Vita.
    Diorama, Dioressence if it is overcast or cool.
    Miss Dior always and forever.

    I'm starting the synch with Diorissimo from my tiny tiny sample-sized mini bottle. This scent is very springlike, cool, collected and calm.
    I can see how the creators of modern scents like Baiser Vole by Cartier or Gabrielle by Chanel could have been inspired by Diorissimo.

    In the evening I'll take a dose of Hypnotic Poison.

    And that Eau Sauvage ad was quite unexpected to me. So cheeky! (Couldn't resist the pun, forgive me.) Thanks for sharing

    Let me see, I think I may have some Dior perfumes around here...

    I think I will go with Diorissimo Extrait de Parfum (2014), the only modern Dior I own. Demachy did an excellent job with this one, and it truly evokes the vintage version. Also, the lily of the valley are blooming in my garden right now, and I should perform the annual ritual of trying to smell them in situ. (Their natural scent of the ones I have is scarcely detectable.) The fresh contrast of white and green and the form of the leaves and flowers are undeniably beautiful though.

    Dior is my favorite house and will always be, based on the merits of the vintage perfumes. They lost me after Poison, but even Poison holds a place in my heart because I had so much fun wearing it in the 1980’s.

    Started last night with Dior Addict as SOTE. Very dark juice, very sweet vanilla
    Today, SOTM was Eau Sauvage EdP (2017); more of a going-out scent, quite formal
    SOTD is Fahrenheit EdT; if I hadn't bought multiple 5ml samples a couple of years back, I might have bought a FB by now
    Rounding off this evening with DHI as my SOTE : older dabber sample; generally lacking sufficient going-out occasions for a FB
    Summer is here : greens, vetiver, aromatics. Selecting from : Bottega Veneta Bottega Veneta pour Homme EdT; Guerlain Vetiver, Etro Palais Jamais. Aramis Tuscany; Penhaligon's Juniper Sling; Knize Sec; Caron Yatagan; . Evening : Etro Ambra, Etro Shaal Nur; Knize Ten, Penhaligon's Elixir.
    Currently wearing: Vetiver by Etro

    Going with Granville - Normandy coast in a bottle! Why, oh why was it discontinued?

    Still very fond of Diorissimo, which was a favourite of my mother's many years ago - oddly enough I didn't like it then because I thought it smelled like grass and nettles - with my later love of greens the version I remember from those days would be brilliant now - I find the current version doesn't have the same green kick. I keep meaning to get some Dune - every time I try it I like it, but have never even owned a sample...

    Synching further with Hypnotic Poison.
    It is beautiful. Some say it's a gourmand, but I'd say it's more a proto-gourmand or a semi-gourmand. I mean, it has some vanilla and almond and edible spices, but it's not sweet at all. Well, at least to my nose. It's just cozy and with a lot of character.

    All the times I tried it in the store before it was mainly an almond and vanilla scent to me, but the bottle I have smells very strongly of caraway. Maybe I got an older batch then, who knows? The lady who sent me it said it's "second reformulation", but I'm not sure how many reformulations it endured. I prefer almond and vanilla as I am not a fan of caraway (I absolutely hate how it tastes, smell is actually okay), but I must agree that caraway makes it quite unique. And it's less perceptible when it dries down, too.

    Hypnotic Poison, first-generation (black cap) EDT.

    One tiny spritz, shared between both wrists, filled the room at 10 o'clock last night and is still going strong this morning.

    This is kind of like eating one of those croissants that are filled with almond paste and washing it down with a big glass of root beer that has had a splash of amarena cherry juice added to it. But it isn't overly sweet, more like just... very luscious. I wish I got more caraway from it, like Alice does. This far drydown stage is rather woody, and some added spice would be welcome.

    I was browsing some of its BN reviews and was surprised by how many men admitted to wearing this. And even though this scent is not for me, I can see how people who lean toward this style would appreciate it, and I might enjoy occasionally smelling it on someone else. It's quite beautifully constructed, with just enough twists and surprises, like most Annick Menardo creations.
