    I'm very curious as to how it will play out in practice. Seems like one of those things that will fall into place as you go, even if the initial description sounds complicated.
    I've sneaked off and read some of the older threads, and they sound promising!
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    I´d love to send and receive, I´ll let all know when I have new tester vials. If my wardrobe isn't big enough..well..darn I´ll buy some more :P
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    So wonderful of you all to be interested!

    Anyhow, just wanted to inform you that the samples marked A, B and C have been mailed out and should reach purplebird7, MikePerez23 within the next couple of days and Lady_in_Black -- within the next couple of weeks, fingers crossed.

    Thank you! I will look forward to Round #1.
    Mike, LIB, get yer gloves on and come out swingin'. LOL.
    LIB, your nose is every bit as good as mine. Plus, you've smelled way more frags than I have.
    Certainly, I will invite Kumquat to join us.
    And this time, I will try not to blurt out my answer prematurely.
    Waiting... impatiently... to learn name... of round... concerning "Cukoo for Coco..." (good choice for me, actually).
    Ahhh! Can't stand waiting...

    Thanks again, we are going to rock!

    OK, here is what I got:

    March -- Round 1 -- Cuckoo for Coco -- host Twolf, sniffers MikePerez23, Purplebird7 and Lady_in_Black.

    April -- Round 2 -- ___________________ -- host Lady_in_Black, sniffers Lian, Ubuandibeme and veuve amiot (how about making it easy on the host and sending at least 2 packages within the same continent?). Please comment.

    May -- Round 3 -- _____________________ -- host MikePerez23, sniffers debbbora, lizzie_j and Black_Cat.

    June -- Round 4 -- ______________________ -- host Asha, sniffers Wordbird, Twolf and exquisitely me.

    July -- Round 5 -- ____________________ -- sender whisperingleaves, sniffers Asha, Haunani and jillsy.

    August -- Round 6 -- _________________ -- hosts kumquat and purplebird7, sniffers whisperingleaves, Aiona and RHM.

    September -- Round 7 -- _______________ -- host lizzie_j, sniffers lushdoup, kess and arwen-elf.

    The following people will be sniffers for the future rounds after September:
    -- kumquat,
    -- Taolady,
    -- SommervilleMetroMan.



    Of course, if you want to host a Blind Sniffing round, just jump in. And, everybody, of course, can participate in guessing or asking questions when the sniffers post their impressions.

    Perhaps, you have noticed, I was assigning sniffing/sending positions strictly in the order you guys posted replies on this thread. Topics/names for the Rounds have to be further discussed/ thought out.

    If there is a round you are particularly interested in doing either way -- sniffing or hosting -- please let us know. Or, vice versa, if someone can't stand even a thought of wearing, say, a tuberose based scent even for a day -- and there are a few among us! -- please speak up!

    Ooh, exciting! I'll be avidly following the first round and *trying* not to get intimidated by my fellow sniffers with more experience than me in round 2... It'll be fun!

    I got my samples from Twolf. You're so sweet, the way you wrapped it with tissue paper, a cute bow and lot's of little goodies...how special you are. Thanks sweetie.

    I promise not to even open up the plastic bag that the three samples came in, until purplebird7 and Lady_in_Black have received their packages - to be fair. So ladies, please post when you get 'em!

    You are very welcome, MikePerez23! Another reason for me trying to revive this game is an opportunity to share the bounty. I have too much for one person to use up during one life time, and I am not a cat in case you did not know....

    However, there are some changes in post #38, as per a Basenoter request. Black_Cat, please pay attention!

    So, will this be one continuing thread in months to come, or a new thread for each month/3x3? (Just wondering about the logistics)

    We need to keep this one somewhere for resolving organizational issues, like who is sending and who is sniffing and who is jumping in, what topics have been covered, etc.

    For each round there will be a dedicated/separate thread, I suppose. Like somewhere in the middle of March please watch out for 3x3 Blind Sniff Round 1 Cuckoo for Coco. On the other hand it would be easier to have all of our sniffing impressions in one place, but the thread will become so large that it would be hard to follow I am afraid. Whatever works for all of us, works for me.

    Hi, mikeperez! I'm glad you're good to go.
    As for LIB, I hope the 3x3 samples speed their way through to her in Italy. I hate to say this, but the last package of fragrance I sent to her hasn't reacher her yet, and I'm hoping it's not waylaid by customs.

    Guys, please don't make me feel worse than I already do for my crazy customs procedures
    With a couple of exceptions, in my experience it takes at least 10 days for packages from the US to reach me - that is, if they are not held up by customs...you may give "held up" several meanings

    After all, Round 1 was initially scheduled to start on March 15th

    Please, sniffers for Round 2, you may start to send me your addies

    This probably should not appear here on this thread, but here goes: not necessarily! I am also a sock fairy, a junk book fairy and a Ghirardelli -- something Italian not available in Italy -- fairy too. All part time jobs!

    Well, tell me your secret word, because I really wanted a package of amber to reach LIB, and evidently I said the wrong word (at least on the customs form) because it has been weeks if not a month since I sent it.
    Well, warm feet, trashy books and good chocolate? That would make anybody's day great.

    large threads can be intimidating.

    Twolf, when you make the new threads, can you put the schedule in the first post each time? That way we can refer to the most recent thread...

    Maybe reposting the rules in the first thread would be helpful too
