    I had to take another look but I think it is:

    Lolita Lempicka Midnight Fragrance (special edition)

    If I have to know the year of the special edition that will make it a softball for someone else.

    Ok, keeping up with answers is a little trickier than I expected -- I'm updating right now!

    I like how y'all are keeping each other (and me!) in line. If I misplace another bottle on the list, let me know!

    (Also -- please submit additions and corrections in a new post so I can keep track of the timing.)

    Some of the update edits I've made don't seem to "stick" the first time around.

    Over half of the bottles have been named!

    Here's a visual on which bottles have been named so far:

    Seventy bottles identified within 24 hours! Only 18 more to go.

    Current tally:
    anamari: 6
    an_oud_girl: 5
    Asha: 5
    chaoskitty: 5
    ComDiva: 1
    darkdreams: 2
    Dimitri: 1
    Jarno: 3
    jillsy: 5
    kewart: 2
    lannansidhe: 2
    mira187: 2
    musse: 5
    Perfume Addict: 3
    PhinClio: 1
    Quarry: 5
    Riannon: 6
    Somerville Metro Man: 5
    Tavorna: 5
    The Fragrant Zebra: 1
    ubuandibeme: 1
    Vivek: 5
    Wordbird: 5
    ydee: 5

    It's a lot to keep track of, but if you're missing points, an answer may have been given earlier by another player, or an answer required more detail (house + fragrance + any special edition notes).

    Please let me know if I'm missing anything!

    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Bumpity bump!

    Does any of you see a bottle of my favorite violet smelling fragrance, sweet with hints of raspberry? A kind of sad that nobody named it yet, I am on the second bottle, and my current one looks just like the one in the collage! (Not in the Directory though ==> not in my Wardrobe).

    Just to keep this thread alive!

    16 more to go.... [ Updated graphic ]

    The puppy perfume is one that I stumbled across in the directory by accident, while playing the Guess the Fragrance game on the Off Topic Forum.

    Row 6, Bottle 5 has a sister who appeared in one of the blue contests.

    When all else fails, try Google Images.
