Thank you Eluard and Kbe! And it was a wonderful puzzle (as always) Kbe!!
4H for Him and Her?
Away for awhile and missing you all! Don't know when I can check in again, but how about Oxygen Sci?
YaY for TVlampboy (blushingly admitting I didn't even SEE the leather--couldn't figure out why everyone was guessing along those lines! MORE COFFEE!!!!)
Lily, I didn't get tired of giving hints, I just thought the players were getting tired of guessing. BTW, the answer had a connection with the "house" picture - see...
I do think Riannon deserves BIG congrats for figuring out ANYTHING about this knotty puzzle. But apart from what El said, her answer (as she noted) didn't have anything to do with the "house"...
ok, here is the result of some wild associations (don't even ask):): Crown Alpine Lily
Oh, I meant that driving a solar car from Adelaide to Darwin or v/v. was a specialized sort of talent (but every country needs something to be proud of):cool:. [GO RED SOX!]
YOUR talent, Dutch...
You MUST be right, LiB! Early congratulations! :thumbup: and the name of the challenge--3 words as per R's instructions--is the World Solar Challenge. Who knew? Nasty, nasty Riannon!:D...
But I can't make anything of that! Darwin is also a free, open-source operating system. Thinking simply (as you instructed) how about something like Free World Woman? --Oh, I forgot all about the...
For what it's worth, the woman in the picture is Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen, Queen Consort of William IV of England (succeeded by Q. Victoria)
Yay! You got it LIB! The "opinion: select" is what you are asked to do at the end of a Basenotes review--vote "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" (or neither, but we will forget that )!. Congratulations...
Nope, and nope (although I like the guesses):).. . .finally one that isn't guessed right away.
Hint: Where have you seen the middle part? That will help you...
Yay! Great puzzle Kbe! Wish I could make them as good as yours! Keep playing Tang! And thanks, Tao.
Ok, I will try. I don't know if this will much too...
Daylight Encounter by Yardley, I think. If so, tricky, tricky Kbe (tricky in any case)!:)
Happy belated birthday to Hannibal! So sorry I missed it (though I always try to have at least a birthday WEEK, myself)!:)
Thanks, but a lot of the credit goes to Riannon. I wouldn't know a juniper berry if it hit me over the head. I actually saw this 'fume at first (when I was hung up on blackberries) but I decided that...
Baie de Genièvre by Creed (as I'm running out the door) :)
Well, that looks a bit like the L'Artisan Mûre et Musc limited edition bottle, though I don't see any musc there,:) So there's also MPG Eau de Mûre, Molinard Mûre, and Sephora Mûre Intense. Of those,...
Just returned. Touché by Jovan or Touche by Annabella.
OK, see, when I say easy, I mean EASY.:) You are all right--Metropolis it is! Kbe was first!
Hmmmm. . . I never heard "atomic bombs" added to that list>:)
Well, it really is my turn, so I will make what I hope is a very easy one, b/c I can't check back a lot!...
Sigh. Finally. It was a great puzzle--although I AM equally fond of some of my other answers (esp. Youth Dew, and, my personal fave cause it's so unlikely, Leon-ard Eau Fraiche):) And I was thrown...
Florida Water (Murray & Lanman)????? I'm going to bed. . .
Ok, now I'm really confused, 'cause I used up most of my FoY guesses. How about Leonard Eau Fraiche (streching a point here)?
Ok, how about Cortez by Fruits and Passion? I have no idea if it's really C. in the painting, but he was the only conquistador I could find in the directory:rolleyes: (after I got over being obsessed...
Eau Jeune (Gemey, Paris)? There's also a Jeunesse by Impulse but I think the first fits better with the picture--and your clue ("wet your whistle").:)
Just got home and find I missed a lot of fun! I think the name is great, R! And for the new puzzle, how about Youth Dew? Going to work now. . .
PdP actually crossed my mind, too, but I (also) thought--NO! She wouldn't!:happy:
Like R, I don't care for it (I think we are the only two):D, but that wasn't the reason. . . .:rolleyes:
Congratulations to Riannon and thanks to Susser--the Dutch rule (apparently)!:)
How about just Palace by Regines?
[quote=kbe;1076028]BINGO lilybp!! Most excellent, with an able assist from the ever erudite and our own shaded block lower-case man, Eluard!
Font=Anna, in the Art Deco style according to the...
Deco, IMO. ITC Anna, I think. . . . So how about Fontana Déco (1925)
by Borsari ?
Hmmm. . .thought of "if," but couldn't get the Wimbledon connection. Shows you what i know. Good one, R!
We will miss you Sudsy. You added a real spark of life here--and, I am sure, everywhere you went.
On R's puzzle: Kipling wrote a story called "Little Foxes"...
Yay! You are a puzzle-making and clue-giving (DJedi) master, K!
How about "Nothing" by Parfums Jamaica (a line you seem to like)?:)
Space for Men (Cathy Carden)? This is, in effect, a translation of El's! There are also several Space NKs (amazing how many space-y perfumes you can find).
Yes, indeed--Riannon does have big (but lovely) shoulders!:)
Thanks to her--and of course, to you, kbe; I dub thee Professor Backwards of Notesbase.
Well, there IS a perfume called Jour et Nuit, but it's not in the Directory. . . so I will go with Dianoche (Daisy Fuentes).
Thanks, TWolf! Your hints are what did it.:) This is a really great thread! Wish I could be around more!
Well, this probably isn't it, but "Abel" means "breath," so once he was slain, he would become. . . . .
Breathless (by either Avon or Victoria's Secret)
I think, then, that it's Rykiel Woman (Not for Men!). If that's it, I do like this--though I don't wear it much--and though it has leather in it, it's tamed to a degree that I don't really think of...
Really have no idea, so I'll take a wild guess--is it maybe an Etienne Aigner?
Lovely puzzle, KBE. And yours, too, Riannon.
xoxo you all,
Dropping in--don't know whether I'm supposed to say anything, but I could never keep my mouth shut!:)
I would guess that it's XOXO by, um, XOXO
Parfums Jamaica White Witch
Thanks guys! And great head-scratching puzzle, G!!
Yay for the brilliant KBE!!! That's it!:cool:
Some help: the reason I was being coy about Sudsy's question is that the name of the house is included in the frag name (1st part).
The pictures are in order. Telling you more than that would be, um, telling too much. Good guess, Suds, but not what I was thinking of.
I guess I owe one now, though, so here goes (following from KBE). Can't promise I'll be available today, though, so feel free to go forward without me:
Thanks--and LIB's "assist" was a VERY big one!!!
Just dropping by, and coming out of left field: Beth Terry Creative Universe Té?
Thank you, LIB. Wonderful puzzle! I've been really out of it, so I'm sorry if I spoke too quickly.
Well, I've really missed you all! I can only drop in briefly, but I'll make a guess while I am here:
La Maison de la Vanille, Vanille Noire du Mexique?
Thanks, but sorry all--I need to pass this one. School is starting tomorrow and I'm overwhelmed with work.:(
Missed me? Brief visit!
Mmmmmm. . . How about Tova for A? I've never smelled this myself, but. . .
Just dropping in to say that sample A sounds a bit like AG Songes to me. But this is probably very far off.:)
Just dropping in to wish RIANNON a wonderful, fragrant birthday!!!!!
Wearing biehl-Mark Buxton 03
Congratulations to the clever Riannon. And many thanks to the wonderful, tricky (and kissable) kbe. I, too, have to be away more, but I will try this one. Is that Pandora? Second picture doesn't...
Citrus Cordial (but the win belongs to Riannon and her crazy computer) :)
Fleurs d'Oranger, then?
Yay! That's right, Kbe--congratualtions!
Riannon has clearly read abaout the, um, interesting model; some info for others (from Wikipedia):
Gian Giacomo Caprotti da Oreno,nicknamed Salai or...
St. John does seem reasonable, but it wasn't what I was thinking of. But you have identified the picture, so you should be close. (he does look like he's saying "up yours"--and considering the model,...
LOL! Thanks Riannon--and, of course, Kbe. Great puzzle!
Ok, I guess I owe one. Warning--I may not be able to check back soon (or much at all). I will try,...
I Am Naked by Danica???
"Unique up on it!" I love that!!!
I really have no idea, but how about Boudoir Sin Garden?
Had a great time getting to know people on the Emergency Board--no refund necessary!! This works beautifully for me.
Thanks, Eluard! Good puzzle; sharing the win with Riannon (after all, I don't have to deal with a rabbit(!
Hi everyone! How about simply Lily Angel (aka Lys Angel, one of the
Garden of the Stars)?
Yeah, I figured you didn't really need her ("patience--patience, I need"), but the father coincidence was kinda interesting. :)
Exactly!!! Bravo! And very, very quick, too. ;) I KNEW you would get it!
First guy = U Nu (known as the Father of Burmese Democracy).
second group--Nicole (Ritchie) + Ay
Well, you are right so far. You just need to, um, narrow it down a little.
Well, because Eluard is SO close, I really think we should finish this off, so. . ....
well, the first one is hard, but if you think about the second (and you are, of course, right) you should get it anyway.
Well, I think it's "Si" (yes) Esta.
And I assume de Chirico's street is empty because. . . .
edit--noticed the Miro connection, but have to admit that I didn't work that out.
OK, here is a silly--and I hope a quick--one:
I actually once...
Oh, yay! That was a very hard puzzle, Eluard--but a very good and fair one! Like Riannon, I started with the PreRaphaelites, but couldn't get the painting for the longest time. . . . :embarassed:
How about Siesta? (the first painting is Esther by Millais)
Giorgio? (di Chirico)
Congratulations to Riannon! Two at one blow!
Boy, I've missed a lot of great puzzles! I can only drop by briefly (at least I SHOULD work) but I will try, without much hope 1835 Eau de Cologne for the Lady in Black's teaser (1835 is the date of...
Just Me for men (Paris Hilton)?
I am American and I have read about Falun Gong in newspapers (can't remember which ones)
Dunhill Desire for a Man? (Another way of saying, "I have no idea and I'm off to the gym."):)
Artemesia? (typo in yours). But that would be a bloodier picture. For this one, it would have to be Lucas (nice name, but. . . ). And you are right; my hippie days are in the past. ;)
That would make sense. :D
Oh, yay for G!
BTW, Eluard, the Holofernes fantasy has to do with my name, which is not lily.
gee, I don't know, El, but I love it--looks like Chanel gone wrong: share the fantasy, indeed!:)
Kenneth Cole New York Men?
I have missed you all (and some very good puzzles) and I am just running out now, but I will guess Karma (Lush)
Aladdin is holding the Hand of Midas.
Gotta go back to work. Is it something like DK Gold (or Amouage Gold, etc.)?
Sartre is the one with hair. :D
Oh, sorry!! You are right! And the other picture is, of course, Genet. Congratulations!!!
I think the problem here is that you are not familiar with the perfume. Too bad, because I really like it. It is recent, but not in the directory; you will have to look around.
LOL! It does have vetiver in it, but I didn't even know he was in Roots. It's not that complicated. :) And NOT Jean-Paul Sartre.
