    This is one of those that I expect four smackdowns, not even close. LDDM, Envy, BdP and Kouros.

    Yeah! Smackdowns! But doesn't hurt to root for the underdogs either. (Feeling the pain of a loss makes me feel involved.)

    Based on the previous rounds, I believe only the hardcore BN'ers are voting. It might be the closest of 4 matchups, but I suspect the margin would still be huge.

    You know, I really hate that these two are getting matched up this early. LddM was my birthday present to myself two years ago, and at one point I considered it a masterpiece. MI, was my first ever niche purchase, and I never considered it a masterpiece. Now both have switched places in my mind. LddM, now feels cluttered and heavy handed, it's a fragrant portrait, that I find rarely wearable, and even when I do wear it, it's incredibly loud, and a bit brash, and I find it tiring. MI, on the other hand, the more I've smelled the more I appreciate it. IMO, there isn't a single fragrance in it's category as brilliant, a beautifully luminous golden hue, of citrus and aquatics. Nary a chemical odor in sight, yet it feels so fresh and rich at the same time. I feel, that it is often under-appreciated by long-standing members, and LddM tends to be overrated by long-standing members, so I predict a perfect storm of coincidences leading to the early exit of MI, unfortunately.

    I really doubt Creed MI is going to close the gap in the next 4 minutes...

    Lol I don't think LDDM will be progressing beyond the next round anyways...reminds me of that American Idol auditions episode this season where a best-girlfriend duo was split up after the judges declared only one of the friends good enough to go to Hollywood and then upon seeing the other friend cry and hug the other, Simon declares 'Dont worry sweetheart, if its any consolation you two won't be apart for long...'
