    Default Game: Guess the Fragrance by the Picture!~ PART 3

    Game started by BrothaG

    Go here for Part one.
    Go here for Part two.

    ::Copy of the first post of Part one with the rules::




    Get ready for a brand new game!

    It's based upon the following idea: someone will post a picture that is in some way related to (the name of) a fragrance. Every member will then be able to guess that particular name. For instance, a picture of the Nile river and a garden near it could translate into Un Jardin sur le Nil.

    The rules are quite simple:
    ** Post a picture that refers to a fragrance. It doesn't necessarily have to be an existing image, you can also come up with a combination of images or create/shoot something yourself. Be creative.
    ** If your picture appears to be too hard to solve, you can give a few hints later on. For instance, mention that the fragrance's name is French.
    ** Please respect the web traffic and copyright of other people. It's recommended to upload your image to a free hosting service such as TinyPic , ImageShack , or Xs.to so that the original uploader won't suffer from hotlinking. Also, make sure the filename ('nameoftheimage.jpg') does not reveal the answer.
    ** Once one is solved, feel free to post a new challenge. If you've posted an image, please check back to the thread often to see if people have guessed the scent's name.
    ** If the poster of a puzzle does not return to the thread in a fair amount of time, other members are free to come up with a new one. The previous poster can still confirm later whether or not people were right in their guessing.
    ** For those creating puzzles: when confirming the right answer please include the house to allow easier archiving of the thread.
    ** Please note: everyone is greatly encouraged to guess along. However, this has to be an equally fun game for all members and therefore, everyone guessing is kindly asked to contribute to the thread by creating a challenge yourself every now and then. Don't let the guessers keep guessing and the creators creating, but be creative instead.
    ** Motivate your guessing, i.e. mention why you think it's this or that fragrance.
    ** Please only use fragrances that are listed in the Basenotes Fragrance Directory (over 10.000 listed). This way, people who are not familiar with a certain scent can still play along.
    ** For all other cases, please refer to the Basenotes Forum Rules.

    The list of fragrances used in the past became too long and was not really useful any longer. So, it is deleted. For those who are curious, part of it is still visible in Part One.

    Have fun!!

    I got a headache from the Guerlain puzzle. That is the risk of thinking too much!
    At least we now know how kbe thinks. It's verbal...

    Congrats to darling Habanitta!
    It's time for revenge.

    Fragrance name and house, please:

    Hi kbe! Nice to see you here. You do have Aspirin, yes?

    Noone got it yet. Fashion history is important here, and its icons.

    Follow Me Boyby BPAL would have been a possibility but unfortunately it is 3 words..

    How about Dior Homme by Christian Dior?

    Noone has it yet - but I like how your minds work. The house has been mentioned, but not the fragrance itself.
    Another hint which may be frustrating:



    It will all fall into place. Think outside the box.

    Due to the 60th anniversary of the house of Dior and the 10th anniversary of their cooperation with John Galliano, Dior introduces three perfumes, each dedicated to a world wide famous lady. Just like Dior had its three muses: France, Lucky and Victoire, John Galliano also presents his ladies of choice, fashion icons of the new age: Stella Tennant, Kate Moss and Gisele Bündchen as the inspiration for the three new fragrances. Passage n° 4, the rose perfume, is aristocratic, romantic and eccentric with notes of fiery pimento just like the woman that inspired it - Stella Tennant. All three perfumes together make an original mixture, and each one emphasize a person, a flower and a haute-couture dress presented on the latest fashion show.

    Thanks, Sophi - I didn't know this.

    Continue guessing - a two word fragrance.

    No, Sophi. No, Duckie.
    You can keep it up for a while - I'm going out tonight in my Eau de Galliano; and I will be back by tomorrow.
