    Kbe's correct about one of the three clues; Riannon's correct about two of the three clues.

    Latrelle: "What?"
    Peggy: "Brother Boy has tried to kill himself. He jumped out of his bedroom window."
    Latrelle: "Isn't he only on the second floor?"
    Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."

    Phew

    Let's try Banana Republic M then. M for Marianne. Or for the 'Me' in the picture of Bush, depending on the picture of the frag being first or last.

    No, but soooo close, Riannon.

    Thank you! For all the different images one could use to represent truth, that was a fun one.

    All I'm getting so far is bumper sticker stuff like 'I brake for Obama'. And there are no fragrances with brake in the name.

    men's or women's frag?

    frag name in English or French?

    There's Democracy by Ayala Moriel, but I don't think that's it.

    Well you are off to a good start but I would not take pic number #3 so literally - yup it is Obama's HS pic ....

    The first pic is an eye..

    Clue: the first two pics are syllables of the first word in the name of the frag - 2 words total.

    ROFL - great guess but not a Hippie

    Clue # 2 - (Tang is warm) what kind of animal is pictured? Hint - galapagos (2 words)

    black and white has nothing to do with it (pic 3)

    The Galápagos Islands (Official name: Archipiélago de Colón; other Spanish names: Islas de Colónumio or Islas Galápagos, from galápago, "saddle"—after the shells of saddlebacked Galápagos tortoises)

    I love these puzzles only because of wikipedia

    Galápagos tortoise (Galápagos Giant tortoise), Geochelone elephantopus, known as Galápago in Spanish, it gave the name to the islands

    Where does she live? On Galapagos Just kidding.....
    "A quickie" Dee said

    Trying to look at the puzzle from a new perspective:
    eye + land = Island
    young Obama = Hawaii, where he spent his childhood

    so, risking a guess....Michael Kors' Island Hawaii???

    Just the name of the fragrance.

    With those kinds of antlers, this looks like a fallow deer? I'll start off with a wild guess for Velvet.
