    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!

    And the final three bottles are:

    Row 3, Bottle 3: Jeanne Arthes Guipure & Silk Blue Moon
    Row 3, Bottle 11: Pascal Shaller Caine
    Row 6, Bottle 9: Creation Lamis Black Light

    Thank you so much to everyone who participated!

    I've been a little distracted by tornado sirens and neighborhood flooding tonight, so I will plan on drawing and announcing the winners tomorrow, a.s.a.p.

    Tang, hope everything is OK with the bad weather up in your area.

    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!

    Hi Tang,
    Very surprized to see my name at 1st place. Had to run to my daugther and tell her! lol.
    Wow, that is very nice, never expected, thanks.

    Congratulations to kewart and Asha.

    I just had much fun to find the bottles and really love the purple bottle collage, who is making these beautifull colages?

    It is talented Tang who composes these pretty collections. Aren't they special!?!

    What a great turnout you had, Tang. Your new collage is gorgeous. Can't wait to see what July's contest will be: pink?, yellow? green? clear?

    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!

    kewart-- Sent you a PM.
    Eddie: Sweetie, what are you drinking?
    Patsy: Oh, this? Chanel No. 5.

    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?

    That's so considerate, thoughtful Twolf. Plus, we want to extend the fun as long as possible into the future, too.

    Only a month? Tang, please take all the time you want or need. It is great that you take the effort of making these beauties, to provide entertainment for a lot of people. But it is not an obligation and family is much more important.

    Congratulations to the winners. Ditto the others, Tang you should certainly take a nice long summer break these must take so long to do, and I'm sure there's much more you stuff you want to do over the summer.

    Thank you for all the kind words! These collages are a nice distraction for me. I don't feel obligated to stick to a certain schedule, but I think I will put them on the back burner for the next few weeks.

    Stay tuned for pink!

    Hi Tang,
    Your second purple collage is even more beautiful. Great work.
    Saw the ones befor too and they are well done. But purple is my special love, must be because it is my birthdaystone color.

    My Prize arrived !!!! I choose PARIS NUIT DE FETE 75mlEDT, will always remember me to the Purple contest and BaseNotes, when it is empty I save the limited edition bottle cause Paris is my favorite.
    I didn't open it yet as I want to do so for a special occasion, may be next week if my daugther graduates will wear it on her party.
    Am so happy with it !!!, thank you Tang.

    It is not in the directory, I am sure been given out befor Christmas 2007.
    Found this on notes at a French site all on a row: Bergamot Violet OrangeBlossom Nasturtium RoseDeMay Mimosa Iris Hawthorn Oakmoss Sandal Vertiver Musk.

    Suppose the first 4 are topnotes and last 4 are basenotes.
