    Jicky baby, you just got to do it. You are almost there. Just another nudge or two and then you'd be in victory land.

    Rive Gauche, you've put up a good show. Great but don't push your luck too far. You are battling indomitable Guerlain heritage *no pun intended*.

    Its hard to go against a Guerlain - ANY Guerlain in the last couple of years. I know there is a certain prestige and history behind the brand, but it was still there before LVMH acquired it and saved it from trouble. I didn't see this much adulation and goo goo gaa gaa a few years ago, when the Guerlain scents themselves might have been in a better shape than they are right now.

    As far as I am concerned, I will take the currently available Rive Gauche over the currently available Heritage anyday. And I will take the currently available No. 88 over the whole stuble of currently available Guerlains anyday.

    This one is going down to the wire.

    Dan: what time exactly is this one ending? Could you add the finish time in addition to the date for future matches?

    I have noticed that all games are generally uploaded daily between 5:30AM GMT & 6:00AM GMT.

    That leaves us at least 6 more hours from the time I make this post.

    This is a titanic struggle among 4 fragrances that consider themselves to be at least equals. A double duel to the death on the edge of a cliff! Wow..I need a beer! Mercy!

    Woah, Heritage alone got 4 votes in a row in the last hour. This could spell doom for Rive Gauche!

    Comparing their current formulations Rive Gauche homme is superior to Heritage EDT, even in the quality of materials.

    Was more of a Mouchoir de Monsieur guy myself...No.88 can't lose to Mouchoir thin Civet fart !

    It's 24 hours after whenever the thread initially goes up, so 12:03AM CST (GMT -6) in this instance. I'm not quite machine enough to have them consistently go at midnight but just note the start time of the thread and add a day.

    I think the female vote will tilt this towards Guerlain ..

    So apparently these polls aren't closing as they should, something I'll have to chalk up to the most recent update. This poll will no longer take votes after 12:03AM Central, so here in about 12 minutes.

    This one's officially over.

    Heritage def. Rive Gauche, 50-49
    No. 88 def. Jicky, 51-48

    There wasn't much call for a BMM Hall of Fame before, but I'd throw these two games in it in a heartbeat.

    Woohoo! No. 88 should be a shoe-in into the conference finals now. But then again, stranger things have been happening in these polls.

    On one level I tend to agree with you, since I have three bottles of Jicky (one edt and two pdts) and one hand/body lotion of it, buuuuut, in keeping with capitalism, I voted for the one I don't have since I take what I've got already for granted.

    I'll take responsibility for one of No.88's votes and thus one fewer of Jicky's.
