    Arrow This seems like a great community....respect, humor and love for hobby. So what's the story behind..

    I'm new here, what is the story behind your avatars or picture(s) on your profile?

    I've notice someone has a black/white photo of a big dog, another has a black/white photo of a WWII era fighter pilot.

    Mine? I love motorcycles, Excelsior Henderson was one of the early American bike manufacturers before the Great Depression killed it in the early 30's.

    Smell ya later!

    I'm being satirical of some of the the pretentious perfume names out there. Adonis sounds like something that would have pheromones in it and would be worn by someone who drives a 1920s replica kit car (no offense to anyone who drives one).

    1920's is a bit much. I would love a Shelby Cobra kit. But I'd rather a real one. *sigh*.

    My picture is self-evident.

    Model Karen Elson, the late-'90s face of Chanel, and 50x50 doesn't do her justice. Here's the big version, and here are some even better pics from the same shoot. No real reason behind the avatar choice besides I dig redheads, and redhead models even more, and she seems like a cool chick in real life.

    Also, welcome to BN! I'm new-ish here as well, and am loving the place so far.

    Great question! I've often wonder that too!

    My avatar is the beautiful magnolia grandiflora. It's the state flower of Louisiana, my home state, and one of my favorite floral notes in perfumery.

    Evangeline is the romantic heroine of "Evangeline, A Tale of Acadie" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. It's also the name of a Parish in Louisiana, as well a settlement in the Acadian Peninsula of New Brunswick. I've loved the name since I was a very little girl - my mother used to call my best friend "Lady Priscilla," and I was dubbed "Lady Evangeline" when we played dress-up.

    Hey, you were talking about me! It's a photo of the late Gregory Peck - one of my absolute favorite leading male actors from the era. He often played the role of a gentleman with a lot of personal charisma - women love to be with him & guys love to have him around. A devil-may-care attitude, as shown by this photo of him in the bomber outfit with a ciggie in his hand, only adds to the intrigue. That's the kind of personality I'd want in a bespoke fragrance.

    YES!

    Gregory Peck was one of the sexiest men around in the day. Absolutely wonderful statement of personality!
