    Tang, if the contest comes to an end and there are unnamed bottles remaining, are you going to give a chance to people who have already met their quota of 5 to name them?

    Yes -- I offered that in the first post, so I'll follow through if that's how things go. I'm hoping most of the ones that remain can be identified by then, though! I might open it up Friday or Saturday, but I'm mulling over the fairest way to do it, since the Australians & Europeans would have a headstart.

    Any suggestions?

    I think the only fair way to do it so everyone has an equal chance is to advertise a time (sort of in the middle so that everyone can participate) and then let it be kind of like an auction and whoever gets the answer in first, gets it. That's the only thing that comes to mind.

    Only 9 to go? Yippee!

    I agree that all people should NOT go over 5, thus making the whole game a strategic assignment. How about counting "Two for one" for the last bottles, i.e. everybody who names one remaining bottle out of the LAST 10 bottles get twice as much points as people who named the easy ones in the beginning? I know it is taking chances, but I think it is only fair. What do you guys think?

    OK, welcome Mira! Are you (by any chance?) related to Dimi?

    Hello Twolf,
    Yes, Dimitri is my hubby who manages to spend more time here than I. But after his Aqua Shock victory some weeks ago, I decided I too would try my hand at identifying these new bottles. I can now say is its a lot harder than I may have first given him credit for. I am working from the laptop while he uses the stationary PC. I don't think he has quite come to terms with the fact we're 2-1 in my favor right now. lol

    Bump! Bump! I've identified a bottle that has yet to be named, and thought I'd borrow from another thread here on BN to offer up some clues (house and name). Tang gave her kind permission, so here it goes:

    Along with an_oud_girl's picture clue for one of the bottles, there has also been a clue for Row 6, bottle 5, and a pointer to one of Twolf's Teasers for a bottle that can be worn around the neck.

    If you have already guessed 5 bottles, you may guess ONE additional bottle starting exactly 12 hours from the time of this post. I hope that time frame is workable for anyone who wants to jump in.

    Anyone who has not yet identified 5 bottles may post new guesses at any time.

    Good luck!

    Shall we wrap this up? Once again, starting exactly 12 hours from the time of this post, any player who already has 5+ guesses can guess any/all of the final three bottles. No limits, let's knock this out of the park.

    Any other player who became a member of Basenotes prior to June 1, 2008, may submit guesses from now until the deadline.

    And anyone else who would like to post clues to help others guess -- feel free!

    Just wanted to tell you that this contest was particularly fun and those last three totally challenging. You are a whiz at finding these beauties. I am curious which is the one that Twolf loves and in the picture puzzle I see the guipure (I kept thinking lace), the silk, and the moon but the first two pictures, what were they?

    Yow. Those last three were complete stumpers. I googled my face off trying to figure those out. And I even ventured to guess that last one had the word "black" in its name judging from the bottle, but still could make no headway. Amazing finds, dear Tang.

    The Results:
    We had 25 players this month, up from the usual 6-8 players. 85 out of 88 bottles were identified by the deadline. It was fun to have so many people join in.

    To draw the winning tickets, I used my handy spreadsheet and the RANDom number function (re-calibrated after the 1st & 2nd drawings). The RAND function selects a player's number as randomly as if I had put over 80 pieces of paper in a hat.

    The Winners:
    1st place: ydee
    2nd place: kewart
    3rd place: Asha


    The three of you will be contacted regarding your prizes. :bounce: Congratulations, and thanks so much to everyone who played along!

    I will defer to an_oud_girl for the picture-puzzle question. I first thought the 2nd picture was Dudley Moore as Arthur (hence Arthes?), but I'm not too sure about that myself.

    I think Twolf's favorite violet is Row 6 No. 3: Violettes de Toulouse from Parfums Berdoues. Pascal Shaller Caine is the pendant bottle that made a previous appearance (before my time) in the Same Name Game #8 thread.

    As for finding all of these bottles each month, 99% of the credit goes to other Basenoters behind the scenes who suggest bottles to find each month. Several of you also helped out enormously when I asked for red & blue suggestions. I truly appreciate all the ways that you support my collage contests. Thank you!

    I LOVE the gradated purple arrangement!

    anamari-- The first two pictures are of Arthur Miller and Dudley Moore as Arthur, a couple of "Arthurs" = "Arthes." I really enjoy the Fragrance/Picture game in the off-topic thread, but I don't let myself pay much attention because (like these puzzles of Tang's) I get too drawn in and nothing else gets done!

    Congratulations Everyone!

    Congratulations to the winners! Loved the new format, enjoyed the fact that many more people were not so intimidated, pleased with the results, adore the new "from light to dark" collage.

    Tang answered the question about Twolf correctly -- my fave is Violettes de Toulouse by Parfums Berdoues, and the most difficult one, I suppose, was that Pascal Schaller Caine "around the neck" bottle. For having done this, tang will get her little prize too in a few days! Anamari, please PM me your address and I will forward a drop of Violettes to you as well.

    Still encouraging more people to weigh in -- be it with their suggestions via PM, prizes, ideas. Hoping that (maybe!) castorpollux -- wherever this individual is hiding at now -- sees this thread and starts posting. BTW, it is his birthday today and I can't believe I forgot! Sorry darling.

    And the last point: collages take time. Summer is time to tend to our gardens, children, families. I think it is only fair that we all give tang a break and let her skip one month, vacation from collages of sorts, what do you folks think?
