    Azemour les Orangers for me. A French perfume house helmed by a Corsican with an Italian sounding last name, sprayed onto an American. Fits the bill, I think.

    Seemed to pair extra nicely with humping two cords of firewood. Although anything might have today. After a July of mainly rainy or cloudy days...or "sunny" days with an eerie orange/pink haze of wildfire smoke from 3000 miles away, we finally had a low humidity sunny Friday, with smokeless skies. This weather has the serotonin pumping and probably any perfume would have felt right.

    PStoller and Cook.bot win for creativity! I’m just using this as an excuse to wear three different perfumes today.
    USA: Estee Lauder Pleasures
    Italy: Armani Sí
    France: Not sure yet, probably Twilly or Boucheron.

Quite an interesting history actually, in that they served the Russian Tsars and then later were nationalized by the Bolsheviks in 1918. I guess the Bolsheviks weren't much into fancy jewellery, as they moved to Paris in 1924. I learned something today!
    In fact, the Fabergé family—originally Favri, and changed over many generations—hailed first from France before migrating to Russia, where they established themselves as fine jewelers in 1842 (at which point they added the accent to the last “é” for flair). The Revolution forced them to flee in 1918.

    Samuel Rubin appropriated the name in 1937. When the surviving Fabergés in Paris found out, they wanted to sue, but given the expense, they settled for a one-time payment of $25K in 1951 to grant a permanent license to Rubin and his successors to use the name for fragrance. The emboldened Rubin registered the name for many other uses—including jewelry. He then cashed out in the 1960s for $26M.

    He should have held on. Through a series of mergers and acquisitions, Fabergé was purchased by Unilever for $1.5B in 1989, which then applied the name to everything down to toilet cleanser. The Fabergé family got the last laugh, though, when they bought back all the rights to their name in 2007 and reattained their former elite status as fine jewelers.

    Thank you for those details. It does make more sense that the Revolution forced them to flee, given who they catered to - those ornate jewel-encrusted eggs they were known for look like a symbol of bourgeois indulgence of the highest sort.

    The longevity of the Cellini is such that I don’t need a SOTE to sustain the sync, so if anyone else is looking for a “hat trick” fragrance, I suggest:

    Halston - Z-14 or 1-12. Halston was an American designer, Max Gavarry was a French perfumer, and while we can’t be sure whether the elusive Vincent Marcello was Italian, we can be certain that bottle designer Elsa Peretti was.

    For Larimar’s Great Outdoor’s Day sync I'm thinking of something woody or mossy that evokes either the wilderness or the countryside.

    To me vetiver scent is something that makes me think of wilderness and outdoors in general. There's something calming and free in the scent of vetiver to me.
    I don't know why, but woody scents usually make me think of home, coziness or woodworks instead of wilderness. I enjoy them a lot and I believe they fit outdoors perfectly, but it's not what I'd personally choose here. Unless it's piney scents, these remind me of forests instead of sawmills or a cozy evening by the fireplace.
    And I don't really like mossy scents too much, although there are some exceptions.

    I could go for something coniferous, but since it's hot outside vetiver seems to fit the best.

    So if vetiver it is. I have a lot of choices among my bottles and samples that are either mainly vetiver or have it as quite a significant aspect of the scent:
    Timbuktu by L'Artisan Parfumeur
    Mr. Vetiver by Une Nuit Nomade
    Narciso Rodriguez cubes (I'd choose Narciso EDT here)
    Lolita Lempicka Mon Premier (if I want to go a more gourmand route)
    Le Baiser du Dragon by Cartier (I get just a little vetiver here)
    Fat Electrician by Etat Libre d'Orange
    Bois d'Iris by Van Cleef & Arpels (also just an aspect, it's more irisy-incensy-woody to me)
    Citrus Noir by Molinard (it's mainly smoky citrus, but it does have outdoorsy vibes to me)
    Cabochard by Gres (a bit of vetiver and a bunch of galbanum and moss)
    Angel Muse EDT by Mugler (oh, and I also have a sample of EDP) (well, I get much more citrus, chocolate, nuts and patchouli here, but vetiver is noticeable too if I want to go a super gourmand-chouli route)

    I'm leaning to Timbuktu for now but we'll see!


    and if I am feeling bold and not in a mood for vetiver, I can always choose Mugler Aura for its synth jungle, too.

    Today it seemed, coincidentally, like the BN robot had started a theme that the next few posters followed.
    May I suggest we do a sync some day where we all try to follow the robot's lead, whatever random thing we may interpret that to be.
