    Havana and Ambre Sultan are going to draw two very devoted fan clubs, indeed. Gonna come down to who has the bigger one, and I fear it's Ambre Sultan.

    I think I underestimated the following of Ambre Sultan when filling in my forecast bracket.

    Personally, I think Ambre Sultan is just a 'meh' amber.

    Ah come on, how has lame Ambre Sultan come so far and is beating Havana? Not only is it not the best amber, its not even the best Lutens. I suspect people are voting for the Lutens name here. Some one please explain to me how exactly is this a great, rich, authentic amber (and no, 'Turin says so' doesn't count).

    With you 100 %.
    Within the genre it is beaten hollow by TF Amber Absolute / Montale Blue Amber and within the SL house Chergui, Iris Silver Mist and Gris Clair are far superior. Havana gets my vote along with Eau Sauvage.

    If both Havana and Kouros lose I am thinking of plugging both nostrils for a week with black cotton rolls in protest.

    I was hoping that Havana would get more support seeing how it's been re-released and more people have had the opportunity to try it, but i guess not...

    Looks like we have another nail-biter, folks!

    Given the choice of Havana or Ambre Sultan -- and i've tried both, though not vintage Havana -- I would choose the latter. It fits me better.

    Fair warning, the next game will be a bit delayed, I'm in Cleveland with Diana and we're getting her new computer set up, which also has the BMM info on it. It'll be up around when they're supposed to go up, Midnight Central if not sooner.
