Oh boy... the 3 I had initially nominated made it to the list! I'm voting for Encre Noire anyways
Azzaro pour Homme
Gucci pour Homme I
Guerlain Habit Rouge
Hermes Terre d'Hermes
Lalique Encre Noir
Narciso Rodriguez for Him
Yves Saint-Laurent Rive Gauche pour Homme
OK. We have our finalists!
Voting is set to end September 9, 2009 at 12:46 AM EST. That will give everyone almost 2 weeks to obtain a sample of the winning fragrance, if they need to. Remember the Scent Synchronization day will be Tuesday, September 22, 2009.
May the best fragrance win!

Voted for GPH. I hope the winner won't be something i don't own.
"A parent's only as good as their dumbest kid. If one wins a Nobel Prize but the other gets robbed by a hooker, you failed."
May 'Encre Noire' win :-)
That's a decent list of finalists there. Other than Narciso, I will enjoy whatever wins. As it is starting to get a little cooler here now, a little vetiver would be good. Encre Noir for me
Na, since I cant wait for that little final push to obtain Habit Rouge my choice goes to that one.
Plus it has so many editions to cut across a wider spectrum of users. A poll of sorts can be derived on that day if HR is chosen.
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
Aw. I'm the only one who voted L'Anarchiste.
Sorry, but if Habit Rouge wins, I'm going to throw it in the bin!!!!! The worst buy I've ever made!
I voted Narciso Rodriguez for Him for four reasons:
1) It's the only scent of the group that I own.
2) We already did Guerlain Vetiver once. Remember Paul G's stories on the SSD on the old board when it won?
3) My friend at BPI (who happens to make the juice) is returning from a brief hiatus around the same time as SSD. And she's such a sweetheart.
4) It's a great scent anyway!

Top 5 for Winter:
1) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
2) Back to Black - By Kilian
3) M7 (vintage or Oud Absolu) - YSL
4) Aventus - Creed
5) John Varvatos Vintage
My mission statement: "I am not afraid to keep on living - I am not afraid to walk this world alone."
Out of those, I'm for Habit Rouge EDC
I actually wanted Azzaro ph to win but I voted tactically for Habit Rouge to keep out the devil that is TdH.
I was the first who voted for Heritage. It doesn't seem to get much love here.
I'll wear whatever that wins.
Current Top 5
1. Creed Aventus
2. A*Men Pure Malt
3. L'instant Extreme
4. Nasomatto Duro
5. CDG - Kyoto
I voted for Guerlain Vetiver, but Habit Rouge would also be a good one.
Looks like Habit ROuge is going to slowly run away with this one. Aw well, just another excuse to go shopping
Just a reminder -
The idea behind Scent Synchronization Day is to try to get as MANY BNers to wear the same fragrance on the same day. So picking a fragrance that a majority of people already own or a sample of can be EASILY obtained, will increase the number of members who can join in - which is ideally what we want. That is why I think Burberry London was a great pick last year.
So you may want to keep that in mind when voting.

Yeah, didn't we already do Guerlain's Vetiver a while back?
I'm in, with a vote for Lalique Encre Noir. Yay!
It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson
My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...
I voted for my newly acquired Rive Gauche, however, I'd love to wear some Habit Rouge EdC if someone would kindly send me a sample.. I can trade!
I hereby cast my ballot for - Lalique's Encre Noire !
I voted Equipage but will happily wear the likely winner which looks to be out of EN or HR.
Conscience is what hurts when everything else feels so good.
I voted for the only one I have, Rive Gauche.
bumped Encre Noire up 1 to tie w/HR at 19ea. (I already have EN)
I haven't tried HR so if forced to go get a sample then ok by me!

Voting ends shortly after Midnight tonight (EST).
Looks like it is a 2 man race right now, unless some last minute voting pushes up another contender........
haha my event horizon is tied for the top again!
At your service
I suggest a run off between Habit Rouge and Encre Noir, so that a true majority winner can be determined.
Eddie: Sweetie, what are you drinking?
Patsy: Oh, this? Chanel No. 5.
-- Absolutely Fabulous
I just had to pick Gucci pour Homme. I adore the scent and hey....its the perfect Autumn scent !
Habit Rouge and Encre Noir and tied with approximately 6 hours left in the voting. Cast your vote before time runs out!
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
Just voted, so It's Lalique Encre Noir by a nose.
Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....
Has everyone checked out my Top 100 Blog??
Well clearly we need a tiebreaker poll!
"It's not what you look like when you're doing what you're doing; it's what you're doing when you're doing what you look like you're doing."
I'll throw in another vote for Encre Noir, seeing we have a tie. ... Maybe this can be taken as the final push forward past the winning line for EN ???
Well it looks like we had a tie!
Please vote in the tiebreaker poll ASAP - http://community.basenotes.net/showthread.php?t=235585
Voting for the tiebreaker poll will close on 10th September 2009 at 05:07 AM EST.
