    Lightbulb Winners Announced! Bottle Contest #8: Green without Envy

    This installment showcases 102 bottles in various shades & accents of green (and venturing back into aqua).

    Challenge:

    For the image below, each contestant is challenged to name a minimum of one fragrance and a maximum of five fragrances, by responding to this thread. The more bottles you name, the more "tickets" you'll have in the prize lottery. Thanks to some generous Basenoters, we have several prizes again for this contest.

    Click on the image below to view it full-size (1280x960):



    Fullscreen: 1280x960 | 1024x768 Widescreen: 1680x1050 | 1280x800

    When counting the position of bottles, SKIP the big one in the middle. (Name that one separately.)

    • If your browser resizes the picture to fit your window, the bottles will not be as easy to see.
    • Give as much detail as you can (gender, special editions, etc.).

    Process:
    • Submit your answers by posting to this thread. Indicate the Row # and bottle position. You may post multiple responses to this thread until you have named 5 bottles. (Do not send answers via PM.)
    • You must name the house and the fragrance for your answer to count. Details that distinguish one bottle from others in the same line should be included. (Example: CK One Summer 2005 is a different bottle than CK One Summer 2007. "CK One Summer" would be an incomplete answer.) If you don't see your answer on the master list, I'm looking for more detail.
    • If some bottles remain unnamed toward the end, I'll open up the contest to allow more guesses per person.
    • I will keep updating the master list as time allows, to reflect the bottles that have been named, but a review of the previous posts may help before you submit your answers.
    • Post new answers in a new reply. If you only edit your first post, I may not catch the update.
    • Have fun!

    Deadline:
    6:01p.m. (CDT - US), Saturday, November 22, 2008 => 12:01a.m. GMT, November 23.

    Who Can Play:
    Anyone who became a Basenotes member prior to November 15, 2008. Previous winners are also invited to participate.

    Judging:
    The only criterion is that your answers be complete -- list both the house & fragrance for each bottle you name, and includes any special edition details. All prize winners will be chosen at random. The more bottles you name, the more "tickets" you'll have in the prize lottery.

    Prizes!
    1st drawing: a $50 (USD) gift certificate to one of the following
    • BeautyHabit.com (gift certificate via email)
    • ThePerfumedCourt.com (gift certificate via email, but having trouble with this option lately)
    • Sephora.com (gift certificate via email)
    • ThePerfumeShoppe.com (physical gift card mailed within Canada?)
    • Another e-tailer of your choice that offers gift certificates via email
    • I'm open to other options for Basenoters outside the U.S. (e.g., Aus Liebe zum Duft)

    Other winners will receive one of the following green gifts (all generously provided by Asha, Grant, Quarry, rtamara41, & Anonymous! )
    • Chanel No. 19 Body Lotion, 200ml, in box
    • A Natural History of the Senses, by Diane Ackerman (in nice condition; reviewed on NowSmellThis) + Guerlain Vetiver All-Over Shampoo, 25ml travel size

    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Well, there's no envy here, but I supposed coveting is to be expected.

    Yes, yes, hear hear! A calender would be a wonderful thing and I would be willing to spend a fair amount of 'green' on it. These montages are just amazing and wonderful and all superlatives you can think of!

    Tang is a genius! Not only is the art amazing, but we are held breathless and captivated and when finally something that collects all of these lovely and much coveted pictures together, we will all rush at once to be the first to get it!

    Pure genius! (Maybe a bit diabolical, but genius!)

    For lushsoup, tdem1961, lilybelle, and Gblue -- there are 4 bottles for which I'm looking for one extra bit of detail. I believe this distinguishes them from other bottles in the same line....

    I normally don't like green, but as usual tang, this is a beautiful work of perfume art!

    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    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

    Actually, I think I am wrong. I found a different Bleecker Street bottle. I think rtamara is right.

    I'll change my guess to Row 5, #1 Alfred Sung Paradise for Men

    In the Basenotes Article link it says:

    "Chelsea Flowers (peonies-magnolia-rose) is decked with emerald-coloured stones."

    So I think rtamara has the correct answer. Either way, she can have my other correct answer above if not, I didn't mean to take it away from her. I was looking at the pictures and the empty lists and not the posts, I did not know she was after that one.

    I went with this picture from Harrod's. Some other retailers do show a brighter, more lime-green photo.
