    Default BMM09: 3/17 Games 49&50 (Scented Sixteen begins! TdH v. T42, RG v. Antaeus)

    Basenotes March Madness 2009
    Games 49 & 50
    (Round 3)
    Poll ends March 18.

    (2) Terre d'Hermes vs. (11) L'Artisan Tea For Two
    (9) Chanel Antaeus vs. (12) YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme


    Here's the updated bracket after the first 48 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.

    I'm rooting for both underdogs here. Go Tea for Two and Antaeus!

    I've not even smelled Tea for Two but it HAS to be better than "an old shoe grinding a baby aspirin into a dirt road" Terre D'Hermes.

    SoS, I agree--T42 is ok, TdH is olfactory assault. I'd rather go for boring than painful.

    OMGOMGOMGOMG!!!!
    The battle of Titans! Is Rive Gauche PH ready to stand up against the big daddy? against the power house that Antaeus is?
    Yes it is. Though clearly inspired by the Chanel, Rive Gauche has taken the lead in terms of dynamism, modernism wearability and sophistication. It is not as convoluted as the Good Antaeus, but it is much more elegant and suave. Time to move on.
    Let's kick some GREEK GIANT BUTT!!!
    THIS IS RIVE GAUCHE!

    Antaeus an underdog?
    no way
    rive gauche is a joke compared to the mastery and legacy of Antaeus
    this shouldnt even be polled
    move antaeus to the next bracket and save time
    thanks

    I thought Antaeus was an underdog from the popularity standpoint. Early results are indicating that I was wrong. Well, that's fine by me!

    Had to be Terre and Antaeus - I don't like Rive Gauche PH at all, drydown is horrible I think,
    In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...

    Wow! This by far the most compelling matchup to me so far. Both of these should be real close. TdH has really begun to bore me to tears so it has to go to T42 and I got to go with Rive Gauche, a modern classic!

    Funny, I voted for the same two without having seen your "cheerleading," SoS!

    While I like Terre d'Hermes, I *adore* Tea for Two. And Antaus is also awesome. Let's hear it for the underdogs!
    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

    NOOOOOO

    I concede victory to Antaeus, still a summit within male fragrances.
