I referenced in another thread just now, an ugly sweater pairing with a scent (and a drink). This would be ideal around Christmas time next year.
Fragrance Haikus/Limericks would b
How would a BN Robot synch work? I don't know how to speak to the robot, Grant never taught us that.
Here's another one, I thought of it while I was in the shower.
Fragrance Analogy - Chose a scent and create some kind of analogy that describes the feeling of this fragrance. It could be in the form of a humorous fictional story or just a simplistic description of what it's like.
For example Rogue Perfumery Mousse Illuminee - Imagine going through a wilderness that has been raining 40 days and 40 nights straight. As you're walking through the thick mist, ninjas come out with swords fanning out their mossy odor on their gear. You run away as fast as you can and out of nowhere a sloth falls from a tree and covers your eyes so that your blind. You trip over a tree root and fall out into a lake full of tree sap. That's the feeling I get from wearing Mousse Illuminee.
The sync currently open for ideas, hopefully you can contribute some ideas
You'd have to be a bit more spontaneous for this one l think, & wait to see what the Robot was wearing that day. l'm pretty sure the Robot just hits "pick a random fragrance" anyway, so l don't think he/she plans ahead either.
I’m loving all these suggestions coming in!
Or we could each use our wardrobe button to pick a random fragrance from our collection. Everyone would be guaranteed to have something to wear since it would be coming from their own wardrobe.
On the other hand, I am prone to ignoring the random choice that results or clicking it again many times until it gives me an answer I like or one that is seasonally appropriate. Could be fun though.
Something along the lines of wear something that you would normally wear during the opposite time of the year?I've been thinking about the theme offered earlier, a seasons challenge. I wore Chanel #22 today and it's a wintry fragrance for me. It would be interesting to discover its different aspects wearing it in the Summer.
If we were to have this again next year maybe we should encourage the sharing of audio of the actual music or video clips the opera, I know we did a little of bit of that. Perhaps a brief discussion about the classical music and opera. Why it was chosen and what does it mean to the individual and the scent? Personally I would like to see a little bit more going into the theme to make it insightful.I enjoy everyone's suggestions so far I also really enjoyed this year's Classical music/opera theme synch so hope to repeat it for next year
Complexity of challenge involving feelings, thoughts and poetry such as you suggest, may draw in non-linear participants. Has the effect of drawing in people who are inquisitive.I tend to like syncs that give ideas but aren’t either (a) so specific that people find it difficult to participate, or (b) so requirements-filled that it feels like work to participate vs fun.
I love getting to know other Basenoters and why the fragrances they wear (or avoid) speak to them in some way. Sometimes, I’ll revisit a fragrance I dismissed purely on the basis of a trusted BN’er’s opinion. (Hmm. That could be a sync, but I wouldn’t want it to feel clique-ish, especially for new members.)
I like the colors/synaesthesia/texture idea, as well as emotions, zodiac, and haiku/limerick. And Panned by the Guide. I really like the Challenge Challenge, and the “opposite season” wear idea.
What about something along the lines of, “Ususlly, I struggle with [____], but it somehow works when I wear [____].”
Maybe include an animal pose with the scent as a bonus? We did that previously.I was just on the dog and cat pictures 2021 thread looking at Bavard’s trio and imagining what Margo the apricot standard poodle would wear. Something delicious I’d think.
How about we do a scent your pet day?
No reason to limit it to cats and dogs though.
