    Group C presents the first of only two true tossups this whole tournament, according to the predictions, the other being Himalaya and Old Spice. Should be a fun one.

    I hope the toss up is between Knize Ten and Musc Ravageur. I'd be ready to shoot myself if it happens to be between Jicky and Junk Street!

    No great surprise to see SMW wiping the floor with Joop.

    In Group D, I picked Giorgio for Men to upset Habit Rouge.

    I knew it would be an uphill battle, but 19-2 in favor of Habit Rouge?

    Come on Giorgio!!!!

    Yes, the MR and K10 matchup was a tough call...I chose MR, even though K10 is the better frag. I think MR gets more widespread appreciation, so I went with what I thought was the popular choice...

    I was thinking the Jicky vs Wall Street might be a close game, too, but so far Jicky is prevailing, yeah!

    I figured Knize 10 over Musc Rav by a small margin due to what I have seen as 10s following on Basenotes. An apples and oranges pairing!

    Rooting for Knize Ten! Go Leather!

    I'm surprised at Polo's performance. I guess I underestimated 88, but then again I voted for Le Labo 31 in the opener. I am pretty sure Jicky, SMW, and HR have their games in the bag.

    Bump... Musc Ravageur is starting to pull ahead. The other matchups are completely lopsided!

    Yep. Always good advise to not call or email your friends when your drunk off your ass. Same applies with posting online.

    K10 is only 7 votes behind Musc Ravegeur but baring some miracle in votes this evening I think he's sunk.

    Having K10 and MR meet this early is just awful. Imagine the first round of the tournament pitting Kansas against Syracuse. This means that there will be less deserving frags hanging around. The selection committee should be admonished.

    KNIZE TEN getting eliminated by the frail, weak, and overrated Musc Ravageur is a disgrace to the world of perfumes. BLASPHEMY.

    I voted for MR over K10. Why? While K10 is technically better, I can't stand its harsh isobutyl-quinoline overdose. Thats about it really...MR is pleasant but light years away from a classic or even best-in-class.
