I was thinking "hmmmm, is he symbolically linked to roses at all?" "Is there anything mournful or melancholic about him?" (nope, that would be anubis). Then I just went ahead and logged my guess.

    So I guess I'll put out the next one. A bit of an easy one to get us going this monday morning:

    Musse, you are on the right track with 'McQueen'. Only it is not Alexander. Another McQueen and ....who is that lady on the other picture?
    Think "oldish movies''.....and then start thinking in French.

    Alright, maybe it is not as easy as I thought.
    A perfume from a French House, it is even in my wardrobe and in the Directory.

    Riannon, that picture seems to be Steve McQueen.. I believe he played in The Getaway with Ali MacGraw, which was released as Guet Apens in France... so that would make it Guerlain's Guet Apens, no?

    Seems we have a suffragette her. So that really is a 'prison picture'.
    But who is it? Not Pankhurst (was in prison more often), Sojourner Truth would have been nice but....pictures most certainly don't match.
    Our Dutch Aletta Jacobs? Nah, and Luctor et Emergo is not men marketed.

    Well, maybe inspiration for a brighter mind. That is, when I am right about 'suffragette'.

    Fredricktoo, I am going to eat some 'piece of cake' and drink a whole lotta coffee.

    not a suffragette — she was the subject of a Chumbawamba song "When Alexander met _"

    she was also quoted in the liner notes of a Chumbawamba album.

    Soooo, here we have Alexander Berkman and Emma Goldman.
    She would rather have roses on her table than diamonds round her neck.

    Hmm, sweet statement, since I love the roses in my house.

    And.....we have a very discontinued scent from Laura Ashley called 'Emma'.
    Can't imagine this was ever marketed as a men's fragrance.

    Hmmm, dunno, but ALES and a 'breath of freedom'? Rather unfortunate name. The 'breath of Borks' seems more appropriate somehow.

    Hug to the esteemed Mr. Fredricktoo for a most entertaining 'piece of cake'. May your kitchencloset never be empty

    I hope someone recognizes this picture. hmmmm I'll need hints tomorrow — to soon to ask — good size fits my window and loaded quickly.

    Default Re: Game: Guess the Fragrance by the Picture!

    Aye, beautiful picture and it loaded quickly for me as well.
    It is Eugene Delacroix's - The Barque of Dante. And now where does that take of scentwise?
    --------------------------------------
    I got it! It leads us scentwise to Passage D'Enfer which roughly translates as the path from this world to the next, or even the gates of hell.

    Nice one Riannon.

    But I must say that 'Styx' was also a very clever guess.
