    YES YES YES! You did it!
    Rocaille is French for rocks, rubble.
    And - why did they "reformulate" it into Fleur de Rocaille? The original is nothing like the new version.

    My next hint would have been:



    Fleurs de Rocaille is mentioned in the film.
    So, congrats Haunani, let's enjoy the tango. A true classic.

    Nicely deduced Haunani. I had yet to begin thinking of non-English names.
    Very good puzzle Madame du Barry. The frag fit the pic like a glove. I recall the Colonel (Al Pacino) naming the fragrance that Frances Conroy (as Cristina Downes) was wearing with typical aplomb

    It's an 'action' picture. It can be substituted for the hand in front of the cookie in the first picture. So it will read as this;

    Hint, think of another name for "cookie".

    Not Kapsule Woody Haunani. This frag is sort of a play on two words combined into a one word fragrance name and one of those words is specifically used (but not limited to) cotton when talking about it. Chemistry buffs might see a definite hint at the other word in the relative positioning of the two cotton puffs in the pic.

    I am hitting the hay. Past 1AM here. Good luck!

    The pic is of the Roman statue Silenus (half man half goat) and nicknamed Il Babuino (The Baboon) because of its grossness. The wall behind was usually covered with graffiti although in this pic it has all been cleaned off and the wall painted with anti-graffiti paint so...

    You nailed it, kbe! I'm impressed that you know what it is. All I knew is that is was some fountain in Rome with a man on it (didn't even see the half goat aspect). So yes, I was thinking Roman water man, or some such.

    Can you explain why aqua is spelled that way instead of the normal Italian "acqua"?

    The Latin word for water is aqua so I imagine it hints at antiquity and to the predecessor of the Italian language as darkdreams already pointed out..

    Sorry for the delay folks.

    Yes Haunani your descriptions are spot on and saripatates is correct as to the man/skull pic, but the puzzle is not a phonetic one. It is indeed a scene from Hamlet but only consider a certain specific aspect of each pic and how that relates to a specific aspect of the others. What needs to be done is find out what all three pics share in common (and it is not a particular seen feature of the pics but rather more of a classification) AND what fragrance would express that commonality.
