    Default BMM09: OVERTIME Game 60 Guerlain Vetiver vs. C&S No. 88

    Basenotes March Madness 2009
    Game 60 Overtime

    Poll ends March 26.

    (5) Guerlain Vetiver vs. (7) Czech & Speake No. 88

    Poll will close in 24 hours. The winner will go on to play Habit Rouge in the Fragrant Four. The next round won't start until the field is set so those waiting on the AS/MdM matchup have another day to rally support for it.

    Be a true BNer and vote for an interesting and unique frag, not a safe, me-too vetiver.

    Hopefully you voted NO on proposition 8, but vote YES on proposition (C&S) 88!

    This is typical.

    No 88 has never been behind in the first poll, amounting to 120 votes, and never has 88 been behind even from one single vote.

    And now he s gonna lose it. There s no justice.

    Also, when ppl see it s very close between both, e.g. there s one vote of difference, i suspect they would be tempted to vote to make a tie (and be "the one"" ^^). Maybe the results would be more accurate if we did not know the score during the poll... I mean it s only 24 hours anyway...

    My bet for this one (current score, No 88 , 38 votes, GV 36 votes) is GV by two votes.

    And it would suck.

    88

    The number of keys on a piano!

    The atomic number of radium!

    Dale Earnhardt's car number in the Sprint Cup!

    Combined with the word Delta, it's a big hoggin' tuna boat of a car!!

    88 is a refactorable number, a primitive semiperfect number and an untouchable number. It is also an octadecagonal number!

    It bitch slaps that weak, measly Guerlain Vetiver up one side and down th-other!

    GO 88!

    You got it. I've never worn it, but I have a vintage sample from purplebird, and it blew me away when I sniffed it. GV can't match SdV, IMO, so I'm going with 88, which is in the same league as SdV.

    I think it's rather inappropriate to compare the fragrances this way. While some of them can be found on every shelf in every store, others are very rare and hard to find. And I'm sure that many vote for a fragrance that they really love without having even tried the "opponent". This was probably the case here... No.88, a masterpiece like no other, is a much rarer fragrance than Vetiver. Vetiver is known (and liked) by many but, unfortunately, there are fewer people to have had the opportunity of experiencing the wonderful C&S line.

    The Header to the voting mechanism in so many words asks which of the two fragrances you would like to see advance. It doesn't require a particular choice be noted as to why anyone voted for a particular fragrance, and reasons do vary greatly as to why one fragrance is chosen over another. It is just a diversion, a fun game for most participants after all is said and done.
