    Default BMM09: 3/22 Game 58 (Terre d'Hermes vs. Guerlain Mouchoir de Monsieur)

    Basenotes March Madness 2009
    Game 58
    (Round 4)
    Poll ends March 23.

    (2) Terre d'Hermes vs. (13) Guerlain Mouchoir de Monsieur


    Here's the updated bracket after the first 57 games:



    Remember to only vote for one of the two. If you want both 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.

    bump.

    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost

    MdM is holding up pretty well. Must be because the voting is only open to basenotes members, and not lurkers as well. It will be the greatest shocker so far if MdM wins, despite it being a better scent.

    The venerable classic versus the all-synthetic upstart. The master of modern versus the champion of postmodern perfumery. What a match. You know who I voted for .

    I think this one is going to run tightly, Terre is off to a weak start, but there are an awful lot of fans of it out there...

    I like them both, but I'm glad to see MdM pulled it out without too much difficulty. As I said many rounds ago, it's a great classic of perfumery. I usually throw on a couple spritzes when I wake up for my pre-shower morning dog-walk-starbucks-trip, and it's a great way to start your day.

    I like MdM more than TdH, but the funny thing is that more people here have tried TdH than MdM (which is harder to find) yet ...

    I have never sniffed MdM unfortunately, so I have to vote by default.

    Before I went to bed, it was something like 21-9 in favour of MdM. When I checked in the morning, it was 25-21 for TdH, then 33-25 for MdM. People are voting in herd!

    I think it has to do with regional time differences. I think europe has favoured MdM slightly and USA TdH. But I could be wrong.

    I think that has a lot to do with the differences between the early results and how they end up.

    I've gotta say I'm shocked that MdM is still leading with only a couple hours left.

    Personally I'm surprised that that many people like the civet note in MdM.

    Doesn't work for me, so, although I'm a Guerlain fan, I prefer TdH.

TdH has just, for the first time, got exactly what it deserved. ... TdH can now go back to polishing furniture ... with it's tail between it's legs ! (wink, wink, -grin ;o) ...)

    Amazing how close these polls are. Makes it very intriging.

    I am very happy that the Guerlain won
