    Default Bottle Contest: White Wonder (April Fool's!)

    This installment showcases 95 bottles in various shades & accents of WHITE. The contests seem to be getting too easy for everyone, so I've worked to make this next one a little more rigorous!

    Challenge:

    For the image below, each contestant is challenged to name a minimum of one fragrance and a maximum of five fragrances, by responding to this thread. The more bottles you name, the more "tickets" you'll have in the prize lottery. Thanks to Grant and other generous Basenoters, we have several prizes again for this contest.

    Click on the image below to view it full-size (1280x960):



    Fullscreen: 1280x960 | 1024x768 Widescreen: 1680x1050 | 1280x800

    • If your browser resizes the picture to fit your window, the bottles will not be as easy to see.
    • Give as much detail as you can (gender, special editions, etc.).

    Process:
    • Submit your answers by posting to this thread. Indicate the Row # and bottle position. You may post multiple responses to this thread until you have named 5 bottles. (Do not send answers via PM.)
    • You must name the house and the fragrance for your answer to count. Details that distinguish one bottle from others in the same line should be included. (Example: CK One Summer 2005 is a different bottle than CK One Summer 2007. "CK One Summer" would be an incomplete answer.) If you don't see your answer on the master list, I'm looking for more detail.
    • If some bottles remain unnamed toward the end, I'll open up the contest to allow more guesses per person.
    • I will keep updating the master list as time allows, to reflect the bottles that have been named, but a review of the previous posts may help before you submit your answers.
    • PLEASE post additional new answers in a new reply. If you only edit your first post, I may not catch the update.
    • Have fun!

    Deadline:
    7:01p.m. (CDT - US), Wednesday, April 8, 2009 => 12:01a.m. GMT, April 9.

    Who Can Play:
    Anyone who became a Basenotes member prior to April 1, 2009. Previous winners are also invited to participate.

    Judging:
    The only criterion is that your answers be complete -- list both the house & fragrance for each bottle you name, and includes any special edition details. All prize winners will be chosen at random. The more bottles you name, the more "tickets" you'll have in the prize lottery. (Maximum: 5)

    Prizes!
    1st drawing: a $50 (USD) gift certificate to one of the following
    • BeautyHabit.com (gift certificate via email)
    • ThePerfumedCourt.com (gift certificate via email)
    • Sephora.com (gift certificate via email)
    • ThePerfumeShoppe.com (physical gift card mailed within Canada?)
    • Another e-tailer of your choice that offers gift certificates via email
    • I'm open to other options for Basenoters outside the U.S. (e.g., Aus Liebe zum Duft)

    Other winners will receive one of the following wonderful white windfalls!
    • Creed Love in White EDP, 75ml NIB
    • Montale White Aoud EDP, 50ml, NIB
    • Nasomatto China White parfum extrait, 30ml, NIB
    • Ramon Molvizar White Goldskin EDP with gold flecks, 75ml, NIB
    • Serge Lutens Santal Blanc EDP, 50ml, NIB
    • Comme des Garçons White EDT, 50ml, NIB
    • Tom Ford White Patchouli EDP, 30ml, NIB
    • Lifetime Basenotes membership from Grant!
    • Annick Goutal Folavril EDT, 100ml, NIB

    Many, many thanks to the white goodie providers, bottle consultants, and others who have contributed to postage!

    Awww man, i took like 3-5 minutes trying to figure out why the image wouldn't load, whether it had been faded to REALLY light... i even stared at the image like it was one of those Magic Eye books... this is what the offer of cologne will do to a man.

    Then i finally scrolled down and saw the April Fool's post and i felt slightly dumb. Ya'll don't kid around about this April 1 shindig. That's the second April Fool's post i've come across... you'd think i would have learned from the first one, eh?

    SMM, I'm looking for a little more detail on your first guess.

    Also, Galamb_Borong, Strange Invisible has 23 fragrances in the directory, but I'm afraid I can only credit you for five.

    Good one, tang.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.
