    I'm wearing Terracotta Le Parfum, the new one. I think it has been around for a while already though.
    Voile d'Ete is long discontinued. I read it's different. But it also has its own page as it's a different scent. Have you tried both? Which one do you prefer?

    I was surprised to find there is even a third one that I never knew about! The bottles and dates are all different.

    I still have my decant of Clive Christian Miami Poolside that I could throw on for the occasion.

    Then of course there's my heavy hitters Creed Virgin Island Water and Millesime Imperial.

    Virgin Island water is a good one! Very pool side appropriate, in my opinion. I will have to get creative as I am away for a weekend of sailing and I don't have much that fits this theme. I think I'll go 'pond' rather than 'pool', and will bring Hermes Le Jardin de Monsieur Li. It's a weird, watery, mineralic jasmine that reminds me of skin after a dip in fresh water, cool wet stones and lazing around in a sun dappled garden on a temperate summer's day.

    I am also away this weekend, but I'm taking my travel spray of Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Mandarine Basilic, and it is so refreshing, juicy and suitable for pool activities in my mind!

    I ordered some samples of some beachy poolside suntan stuff since I don’t have much of that. Unfortunately my first sampling of Fire Island did not go well today so I’m checking on mislabeling since this can’t possibly be what everyone else is describing.

    Hoping some of my samples come tomorrow but I’ll be starting off with Terracotta le Parfum since I didn’t wear it last weekend.

    I'm starting off with the daily dose of Virgin Island Water before moving to other warm weather friendly candidates.

    I found a sample of Frapin L'Humaniste. I might have some L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme Summer edition 2009 left over. Then there's my watery Mitsouko Fleur de Lotus and summery Shalimar Legere flanker.

    Just before packing and going to visit my family I remembered I have a decant of CK Escape and grabbed it! I wore it yesterday to sleep. It's a rich, floral, fruity, ambery, yet abstract melon-aquatic. Feels very fitting to "by the pool" mood!
    It's also a rare instance of an aquatic that doesn't cloy me. Not my favourite still and I don't need a bottle, but I'll be able to use up a decant.

    And today as planned I'm in Aqua Allegoria Mandarine Basilic - a beautiful and happy scent, very sunny and juicy. It always reminds me of summer holidays - and that's why I love having a travel spray so that I could always bring it to vacations and make the happy associations even stronger!

    Wearing Armani Code Ice - if they thought this was summer fare, they were wrong! Maybe "nights out shooting pool" - this is not "by the pool", so I'll be changing later!

    I did something very out of character for this sync; I blind bought a bottle of fragrance, now that's what I call commitment!

    It's like this: last week I was sailing with my parents and I grabbed their bottle of Nivea sunscreen, and they've changed the scent! The iconic, unique, instantly recognisable Nivea sunscreen scent, which smells like my childhood summers: swimming in the- often jellyfish infested- North sea, and eating sandwiches with sand in them on the beach, and cycling home in the late afternoon while thunder clouds gathered, was replaced by something different. The new scent is very pleasant (sweet creamy lavender, Caron Pour un Homme-ish), but it's not Nivea sun. THEY CHANGED IT! Not cool. So I killed 2 birds with one stone and bought a bottle of Nivea Sun EdT (which I'm pretty sure exists only to appease people like me), and it is indeed a pretty accurate rendition of the sunscreen scent, and it's called Nivea Sun, so it fits this weekend's theme.

    Dedication to the sync!
    Enjoyed reading your memories of Nivea Sun - Hope it brings back all that good stuff for you.

    Don’t think I have anything for the Sun/Soleil thing. Briefly thought about purchasing a mini of Sun Moon and Stars to cover both the Friday Solstice and the Weekend Sun one but I just didn’t get excited enough about it. So I’ll just be putting on some Terranova Tiare Lei oil that brings back memories of sunny Tahitian beaches.

    yellowtone, I admire your dedication!

    I must admit I have nothing with literal English Sun in the name - only two Soleils and one Sol.
    Next weekend is dedicated to Soleil, and I might cheat a bit this weekend and wear Aqua Solis by Le Couvent des Minimes on Saturday or Sunday morning. I've been wearing it in the mornings through all this week already - including today.

    I might still have sample of Soleil Blanc sitting around, if there's no objection to using French words that would do.

    I don't have anything with sun in the name (or soleil, but that's next week's problem) so I'm syncing with Ariana Grande Cloud.

    Oh, good idea! I was thinking of Mugler's Womanity, but I was at my mom's all weekend, where perfume is literally banned, so I didn't get to sync last weekend. I was wondering what people would come up with for poolside. I love what I'm seeing so far!

    I did try both, and I prefer Voile d'Ete. It's totally a different scent. I was able to try both from two different decanters on eBay.

    To me it came off as a citrus scent, it reminded me of freshly squeezed orange juice. Didn't get any food aspects from it.
