    Dimitri named the 2nd sachet bottle!

    Of the 4 remaining:

    1 is non-liquid and from the same house as another named in the mirror position in the same row.
    3 are in the directory (including two with "white" in the name). But not with pictures.

    The sailboat has a 1970s Avon quality to me. They did a whole "transportation" series back then with everything from 18-wheelers to trolley cars.

    Not for nought, the naughty nautical bottle is not Avon, nor is it Estée Lauder, even though both have been previous suppliers of knotty vintage vessels.

    Ubu, you are so cute. I can't resist people who think I'm awesome, LOL. With your clue that it looked like a salt shaker and Tang's clue about the bottle in the mirror position, I figured it was bath salts or some kind of powder. I think it was a Google image search of "lady primrose salt" that led to this site:

    http://tinyurl.com/lrmt24

    I'm guessing that Senzuality took a similar path. My site doesn't say "Tryst", so my guess is probably missing that piece.

    Ignore my answer to your question, ubu. It was a question for haunani, how she found out the bottle.
    I was only reasoning "out loud on virtual paper" how I discovered it. Tang left some clues and I followed them.

    Just a gentle bump here. For those of you who haven't reached their limit, or who haven't played yet, there are TWO more bottles to identify! It sounds like both of these are in the BN directory, sans pictures, and that one has "white" in its name. Is that correct, Tang?

    See the missing bottles:

    Excellent work, Haunani! I think I must have cropped the original shaker bottle in the collage from your same link, because the shaker holes are front & center, unlike in the full-size image I posted above.

    The contest doesn't officially end until Saturday, but do we really want to wait that long for these last two bottles? Have no lightbulbs gone off for Row 5 Bottle 4? The house is another semi-regular stumper that has been featured in 3 of the earlier contests, and this bottle is in the directory. (I've had too much caffeine today... I thought I saw someone identify it already!) There is no directory picture, but the eBay listings below the perfume notes & reviews may give you a visual.

    Row 6 Bottle 9: Haunani is correct -- a previous clue mentions that this one is also in the directory, with the word "white" in its name. The bottle is somewhat self-describing, and senZuality has sent me her answer already.

    From Haunani's post above: see the last 2 bottles: http://tinyurl.com/nullax

    I've received 2 correct guesses via PM for Row 6 Bottle 9. Both of these players already have 5 points. Someone with fewer than 5 points can still get credit for this one!

    One correct guess via PM for Row 5 Bottle 4. It's a male-designated fragrance, released a little more than 10 years ago. Following the grand traditions of the Guess the Fragrance by the Picture game, some of my previous comments may contain hidden clues.

    With only 2 bottles remaning, I'm not sure whether to open up the guessing to all the players who already have 5 points. I'll see how things go for a few more hours yet!

    I'm a little scattered this morning... need that second cup of coffee.

  43. #163

    Default Re: Name up to FIVE bottles: Contest #10, White Magic

    I've been away getting sunburned this weekend, so I wasn't able to check in at the time of the deadline. Row 6/9 is In Heart Honey White by Estelle de Valrose, named above by anamari and via PM by senZuality & Riannon. There is also a red heart bottle and hot pink heart bottle in the series.

    Row 5 Bottle 4 is Café-Café Men by Cofinluxe, maker of the Watt lightbulb perfume series and several "Café" variations - also named via PM by senZuality & Riannon. I see it shown with this coloring on several websites, but with slightly different coloring on other sites.

    The identification of the last two was a little complicated. I'm giving anamari a point for the heart bottle and leaving the Café-Café point in limbo. I'll draw names from all the players in the next few days and let you all know the winners. Thanks so much for playing!
