    Good guess, Kiliwia, but not the right answer. The House I was hinting at is not Guerlain. Still, it is one of the places you have to visit when you are in Paris.

    And again I say: work with kbe's answer ::and where IS he::

    I had problems logging in and "going advanced" so it could be BN problems again and not your computer But now we both can go into Zen mode again because Parfum Sacré is the right answer.
    Congrats my dear

    Yeah, I remember it's a door in Florence, Italy. But I think it's on a church.

    I think those are the bronze doors named "The Gates of Paradise" made by Lorenzo Ghiberti for the Baptistery of the cathedral of Florence. There are ten panels, depicting scenes from the Old Testament.

    Lots of possibilities here. Beyond Paradise by Estée Lauder?

    Goodnight

    Not Palazzo by Fendi musse

    Acqua di Portofino by Acqua di Portofino? Not this Aiona

    You are absolutely correct Riannon: There are many paths to X out. The doors are indeed on the The Florence Baptistry or Battistero di San Giovanni (Baptistry of St. John) and made by Lorenzo Ghiberti and located in Florence, Italy.

    Beyond Paradise by Estée Lauder? Not this Riannon.

    L'Heure Mysterieuse by Cartier? and not this Hednic.

    **Correction--PLEASE READ!***

    --a couple of hints to point all slightly in the right direction: The answer is a French House and the Fragrance name in in English, and one part of the answer is a play on language/words when thought of in English.

    Not Ciel d'Airain musse. Basically both the House and the frag are what you see, taking into consideration the hints I gave.

    Oh great, I am not good in "sounds like" and "a play on language/words" puzzles Have mercy with this non-native English speaker.

    The best I can come up with is Bronze Sweet Sun by Christian Dior.

    Well...heck! My best bows to your best. You nailed it kiddo. And I thought I could toy with you folks for at least another day with this one..."Mercy" you cry? "Have mercy"? It is I who needs a dose of quality of Mercy (shaken but not strained).

    Christian Dior Bronze Sweet Sun is absolutely the answer.

    Well done Riannon!!

    There, their, they're, dear I must have had an angel on my shoulder.
    Thank you for a great and devious puzzle. I am actually sorry that the answer was correct, the game should have lasted longer.

    At this moment I have no puzzle ready and will leave soon. Perhaps one of the other players feels inspired?

    OK...no takers for posting a new puzzle so I am posting another. Fragrance only. Hopefully this one will be more of a challenge.

    Nice legs. Why do nobility always seem to have clothing with some kind of white with black spots on them?
    But anyway, so it's not d'Orsay. Google-ing d'Orsay, he seemed more of a top-hat kind of guy, right?
    So this dude is older?

    He looks a bit mad, but he's certainly not King Ludwig. They had short hair anyway.

    He's Louis XIV. The Sun King. You're really into the "sun" thing lately, huh, kbe?

    My guess: Le Roy Soleil

    That is ermine fur, Aiona. Worn by the highest nobility.

    I expect that this will be a beast of a puzzle, as revenge

    How about Bourbon Homme by Marina de Bourbon? Or looking at that coat: Bleu Royal also by Marina de Bourbon?

    Well thought out guess Sunnygirl Aiona..the picture is Louis XIV. The answer could have been Le Roy Soleil on another day, but today it isn't.

    Two more good guesses by you Riannon, particularly prescient and germane to the correct answer in a general way was your remark about what he is wearing, but again, those two answers are not what I am after. I originally considered this a much easier puzzle than the last. I had both waiting in ambush and believed 'The Doors' the one that would give the most trouble in solving.

    Concentrating on his coat now. Could it be Gilded Lily by Ineke?

    You are on the right runway concentrating on something to do with clothing. Not Guilded Lily however.

    Neither Hedwig Riannon nor Sa Majesté hednic. The answer is a particular description of the clothing in addition to who it is for. Three word answer.
