    Default BMM09: 3/5 Games 1-4 (Fahrenheit, Cool Water, A*Men and more)

    Basenotes March Madness 2009
    Games 1-4
    (Round 1)
    Poll ends March 6.


    (3) Cuiron PH vs. (14) Dior Fahrenheit
    (1) Thierry Mugler A*Men vs. (16) Dolce & Gabanna Light Blue PH
    (5) L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme vs. (12) Davidoff Cool Water
    (6) Gucci pour Homme vs. (11) L'Artisan Tea For Two

    Remember to only vote for one in each group. If you don't have a preference in a matchup you don't have to vote. If you want both in a group to advance, too bad; voting for both is statistically the same as not voting at all, so quit being so indecisive.

    Poll will close at the end of the day.

    Very hard to choose between Gucci Pour Homme and Tea for Two.

    Absolutely agreed! I spent 5 minutes deciding on that one!

    Wow! L'Instant is primed for an upset, it's beating one of the handful of unanimous picks so far in the prediction thread.

    Oh my, how I hate both Amen and Light Blue, this is harder than the play-in game.

    Cool Water needs some support!

    Nope.

    There are 4 groups and you can only choose one out of each group. So you should have one selected out of Group A, one out of Group B, one out of Group C, and one out of Group D.

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

    How odd, all the fragrances I voted for are trailing

    Lets show some support for my SotD - Gucci pour Homme :wave: I gotta get a full bottle of this terrific fragrance.

    I can't believe Fahrenheit got through to the next round...

    I will say I'm impressed at how games A and D were close all the way down to the wire. I'm bummed Gucci PH lost to Tea For Two. And L'Instant had a consensus like I wasn't expecting, which leads to me to believe it's just people bashing Cool Water, despite the potential for hilarity in the 2nd round. If a mod wants to close this feel free, extended discussions on any games should be made in the peanut gallery.

    I wasn't around much yesterday and missed this round! I thought the polls would remain open for a couple of days at least, like the play-in game. Oh well. Off to vote for 5 - 8.

    p.s. Shoot, my bracket is screwed already. I guess my one extra vote for Cuiron wouldn't have been enough anyway.
