    I have little experience with Mouchoir de Monsieur, though I have tried it, and it didn't 'wow' me like Ambre Sultan did the first time I tried it. For that reason, AS gets my vote here.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. MdM is one of the greatest classics of all time.

    I don't have a dog in the hunt and, while Ambre Sultan has been in my top twenty for a long time, I voted for my latest acquisition and new love - "the little fougere that could" Mouchoir de Monsieur.

    I can't vote in this one, or the Habit Rouge game either, as I haven't tried that or MdM. But I guess this means I totally need to, huh?

    It wouldn't be fair to vote for or against something, having not tried it or it's opponent. Unless it was Beyond Paradise. That stuff is just crap

    I hold Ambre Sultan in high regard. (I still can't believe it took out GIT, though!) But I think I'm too much of a white dude to pull off something so rich and ambery. Still, I can't vote for it over MdM, because I haven't tried it.

    Same here on both accounts (MdM and HR). All my picks are gone already. I wouldn't have imagined TdH and Antaeus both would not make it to the final four.

    I just double-checked my bracket and my final four is N. Carolina, Louisville... No, wait... I had Antaeus and TdH too. Plus Havana and Guerlain Vetiver.

    I think this has been a no-brainer from the outset and nowhere near as exciting as the GV v #88 match-up.

    Are these games at all tied to the 9th Annual Basenotes Awards?
    Did that just disappear?

    Not linked at all.

    The 9th Basenotes Awards have not been announced yet.

    Do they usually take this long? The polls closed about a month ago, didn't they?
    Not trying to rush things - just curious.

    I'm wearing Ambre Sultan again today because of the love here in the BMM. I like it. I really like it just fine; it's good stuff for sure. But I'm definitely not feeling the big love that so many of you have for it. Oh well, more juice for you guys!

    I'm with an_oud_girl on this one. I like AS well enough, but there are other ambers I like much better, and MdM is an amazing fragrance, unlike any other (except for its similarity to Jicky).

    Well this is rather sad--looks like MdM won't make it

    I think we also lost the momentum and spirit by going to a 2 day poll. There was a huge rush to having a new one each day.

    Two day matches are one day too long.
