    Asha and Gupts, you guys are too funny. I think you should look out for Docman though. I'm his cheering section.

    Egoiste for me! Two fine products for sure.

    Ooh that is going to be one shattered ego ! (LOL)

    (And as very nice as Egoiste is, I'm actually pretty surprised it even got this far. ... (I mean, who "knocked it out" last year ??? I can't remember. Must go do a quick search, as I'm quite intrigued now).

    But I do think LDDM is gonna rape the hell out of that egocentric selfish little ... )


    EDIT:...And only one single Guerlain in the running 4 the final ??? (And by the skin of it's teeth too ) ... What has happened this year to all the usual Guerlain "groupies" ??? (LOL)

    Well, Egoiste has got one hell of a support club here but I hope Egoistes success fades right here

    I really like LDDM but I love Egoiste so my vote goes to Egoiste.
    GO Egoiste!

    That is very true ! ... Loads of Egoiste luvers around here for sure. ... And I concur, and think Egoiste indeed a lovely frag. ...

    BUT, no one will ever convince me that Egoiste deserves to win here, and especially not as the overall winner, if it scrapes thru ! ... L'DDM is just (IMO, of course) sooo very obviously the superior composition ! ...

    (Even when it comes down to just their longevity alone, for example. ... LDDM easily outperforms EGO 4 to 1. It lasts easily four time as long, if not even longer !?)

    It just seems so obvious ! ... But many a "superior" frag has gone down here. So ....... ???

    Also, ... Egoiste is probably also stealing many extra votes from the ladies here. (For it quite possibly gets worn even more so by women than men here, probably !?)

    I have one horse left in this derby and neither of these is it. However, I chose Egoiste over LDDM by a small margin.

    I don't really enjoy either of these fragrances but I chose Egoiste because I don't think LDDM deserves to take it all (which if it progresses to the final will most likely be the case).

    Egoiste is creeping back! It's a tough choice between these two so I can see why the LDDM voters do what they do, but Egoiste is a wonderful underdog, and a familiar local (well almost) team. Who doesn't have a soft spot hoping the underdog surprises the killer team in the last moments?

    Had to go with Egoiste. L'Air would be a fave if it wasn't so darn overpowering, but as it is, Egoiste IS a fave with that wonderful rose, sandalwood, and naughty coriander.

    LDDM vs. Chergui final? I think the women voting might help Chergui defeat Vetiver.

    I agree, though it would really upset a lot of brackets.

    It's up to Gupts, Asha and zliang right now. They're each going to pick up 16 tonight. If Chergui wins tomorrow zliang will come out on top mathematically no matter who wins the final. If vetiver wins, gupts 2 point lead will prevail over Asha no matter who wins the final. So, for those of you at home betting on brackets, tomorrow is the final!

    Sorry DustB, I bet too heavily on Habit Rouge. *shakes fist at egoiste*

    I'm shocked Vetiver has made it so far. Habit Rouge and the other Guerlains have more character.
    Vintage Guerlain, Maître Parfumeur et Gantier, and other rare off-site sales.
    Frederic Malle, Guerlain, by Kilian, and Amouage splits.
    New atomizer and decanting supplies for sale.

    Yeah, the originating post says the thread started at 10:30pm EST yesterday.

    I posted my comment at 10:46pm EST but it shows up as being posted an hour earlier - something's amiss in the ether.

    I'm happy for Andy! I find LDDM to be beautiful...just can't wear it.
