    Default BMM09: 3/8 Games 13-16 (Rive Gauche, Jicky, Hermessence, etc.)

    Basenotes March Madness 2009
    Games 13-16
    (Round 1)
    Poll ends March 9.

    (7) Guerlain Jicky vs. (10) L'Eau D'Issey PH
    (3) Basala vs. (14) Bandit
    (5) Caron The Third Man vs. (12) Rive Gauche pour Homme
    (1) Hermessence Vetiver Tonka vs. (16) Versace Man


    Here's the updated bracket after the first 12 games:



    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 in 24 hours.

    Drat, I have more sampling to do! Luckily the only two I have tried before were head-to-head.

    (1) Hermessence Vetiver Tonka vs. (16) Versace Man

    Here's hoping for a complete blow-out.

    I voted for 3: Jicky, as an obvious choice; the very good and very mistreated Basara/Basala, and my personal favorite Rive Gauche pour Homme.

    I thought Third Man was more popular than this. But I never tried it's competitor, is it that good?
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Rive Gauche pour Homme is phenomenal ! Currently I am giving it a "break", but I do love this fragrance and am pleased that it is doing well. And rightfully so, with all due respect to the house of Caron.

    3rd Man losing?! Versace Man got 9 votes vs. Vetiver Tonka?! I see pigs flying!

    P.S:
    I meant how did Versace Man got even a single vote, let alone 9 votes!

    ^^^ Ditto. I had projected a Caron face-off with 3rd Man defeating Tabac Blond to advance to the third round, so my Creed bracket looks pretty ugly right now. I need to get my nose into some of this Santal Noble stuff. Is it really that much better than Tabac Blond?

    Having not tried Tabac Blond I can't compare them directly but I didn't care for Santal Noble, the coffee note in the vintage formulation (which is all I've tried) gave it a definite 'funk' which ruined the whole thing. The new version apparently has fig instead.
