    Look at those prediction scores by Gupts, An_Oud_Girl, Wicozani, Zliang, and The_Good_Life.

    JICKY... NOOOOOOOOO!!!! Well, at least my bracket isn't entirely screwed. I'll be really surprised if 88 takes out Chergui.

    Go BdP and Habit Rouge!

    Oh crap, Rive Gauche lost too! Damn. Well, I'm screwed then. My hopes: dashed!

    BdP is too hot for M7 to handle. As the match up turns out, I can't believe i will be voting for MR yet again..

    Reckon this could be another close one. I'm going with BDP and Habit Rouge.

    I would have thought MR should stand a chance against Habit Rouge.
    HR is definitely a very refined frag but MR is waaaay more likable and subtle.
    The other match WILL be a close call as BdP is awesome, indeed, but M7 was initiator of the Aoud trend, it's one of the few exceptional designers and even though I really like BdP I'd take M7 over it any given day.
    Actually, it's my SotD.

    Twenty-nine votes and it's close already in both races. Another tight one like the last one maybe.

    I just picked this match as the one where BdP lives on overconfidence and a fleet-footed powerhouse of nimble out plays it. M7 plays a big surprise game, I think.

    Habit Rouge has a classic "bonus" and I seem to recall a "meh" trend towards MR on the boards from former adulation. But I'm shocked at BdP trailing so badly. It must be the best-loved Creed behind GIT, while I thought M7 is broadly considered an admirably courageous designer scent nobody actually likes to wear (and which has become superfluous after Montale burst on the scene). Maybe the BdP fans are tied up in teak-panelled business meetings just now .

    27-19 for M7? Is this for real? It would be interesting to see how many of these votes are from people who don't follow that many threads or are relatively new. M7 doesn't seem to be that big of a basenotes darling if we go by the threads, whereas BdP is.

    Actually, M7 is always very popular with the Basenotes Awards; M7 won Best Fragrance for Evening Wear 4 times!

    Come on M7, we now you're greater than Bdp.
    Stand up for all it's worth and get yourself your well deserved win.
    Seriously, I think if anything, it's the other way around - BdP gaining profits for being creed and for being a good gentlemen frag.
    So get some designer in here, get some Aoud in here, praise M7

    No. 88 is gonna go all the way! It didn't go out. Jicky did. Apparently, the polls aren't closing automatically and some people might have voted after 12:03 - the cut off time. But bluesoul didn't count any votes after the cut-off time. No. 88 all the way!

    Bluesoul,
    I have a suggestion. Instead of Group A and Group B, could you list them as Match 1 and Match 2? Some people might still be getting confused and thinking they need to pick either Group A or Group B.

    Its interesting that BdP got the lowest votes of all 4 frags...the anti-Creed force was in full flow here.

    Interesting indeed. I considered BdP to be at the top of the Creed acceptance list.

    This may be slightly skewed thinking. Maybe the current crop of voters just prefers M7?
    There hasn't been much discussion of BDP lately, but lots on oud and M7.

    There's been a lot of Creed discussion lately but also a lot of negative Creed discussion (if you know what I am talking about)
