    I have no picks in this round, so I have to vote strategically rather than for the ones I like best...

    As I write this post, both games are tied. I vote for Habit Rouge, which I like in both the EDC and EDT versions. The other match, well, I will have to choose Jaipur Homme and the vanilla bomb that it is I like it much better than Envy, which is decent, but not something I want in full bottle form.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge, Concentré D'Orange Verte...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    Oh god this was a really hard choice! Habit Rouge v Egoiste? It was like choosing between too beloved children.

    As to the other choice, it was a no brainer for me, I just don't get the appeal of Jaipur.

    Go Habit Rouge!

    I've abstained from the Jaipur vs Envy vote this round. I haven't spent enough time with either, and neither tickle my fancy.

    Habit Rouge has had a lot of chat recently, not least of all because of the exceptional use of the oudh note in the EDP version. Perhaps some of its most ardent supporters are Monday-Friday BNrs, though I hope that they weigh in here in the next 12 hours or so. I expect HR to stage an impressive comeback on Egoiste this afternoon.

    And while I like Jaipur just fine, it is far less complex and appropriate for an active night out on the town than Gucci Envy. Come on Envy!

    Chanel Egoiste 45

    It is 11:15 EST and I think the polls have closed.

    Wow, two more close races. Glad to see Habit Rouge get knocked off its pedestal.
    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost
