    If Lonestar Memories then the old woman is nostalgic about the Earth, lit in the background by a single star

    If Stardust then what isn't made of it, including the Earth in the background and the sun lighting it

    If Sun, Moon and Stars then the Earth allowed those in view to a resident such as the subjects if back on Earth.

    Which One? Each fits to one degree or another depending how one looks at the puzzle, as would many others. Only you really know and mind reading isn't my forte. If it is now one guess per post than Lonestar Memories would be my first choice, and it is a guess as perhaps none of the three is correct.

    so may be i will take the "sun" from soleil fragonard,"star" from Angel Intimate star and the "moon" to make the name of "sun,moon,stars" of the perfume dear KBE suggested?

    Ah, kbe, yeah, I was looking for Lonestar Memories. In my mind, I was thinking about how there are a number of binary star systems, and how planets have been found around them, that our own particular solar system is really quite special. Not so special, that there aren't others with single stars, but it is something that is definitely our own, like blue eyes, or red hair, or a mole on our cheek.

    Anyway, thanks everyone for your answers!

    YOUR TURN, KBE!

    "Really hard"?? You mean, as opposed to Aiona's cake-walk of a puzzle?

    That sounds like it, darkdreams! But in case it's not, there are 6 "Ben Franklins" in there. My guess is Six (S)cents Parfums.

    Great answers, but everybody is clearly centering on the wrong clue, and thereby aiming about one continent too low.

    Look to the sides for two clues, and you will be led directly to the answer. And remember - books are not the only things that should not be judged by their façades.

    You got it! Good job!

    The fragrance is named after their address, shown in the picture in Google street view. As a new niche firm, they clearly aren't occupying the prime floorspace, but who knows - perhaps someday they will. They have three wonderful fragrances, and D600 is the one I bought on first sniff.

    Other coincidences:

    Kilimanjaro's tip is 600m above the bottom of Everest and has a base camp at its 600m mark. Oh well.

    Neil, if reading the print at the right side of the pic is important my resolution is not that good, even using the Microsoft magnifier.

    edit: Yay darkdreams! I was in Barcelona on Google Earth street view ('Kilimanjaro bookstore') but never came close. Good puzzle and good solve!

    Great job, DD, and fun puzzle, RP! I was thinking those were Spanish words, and I experimented with the 600 also, but never got there. I had come to think that it was possibly Paris, and was first thinking about how to connect this thing with Hemingway's The Snows of Kilimanjaro. It went downhill from there... :-)

    That looks like it's supposed to be an ellipses after the treble clef, but I can't make sense of that, so far.

    2Tone it isn't Haunani. Nor are they an ellipses. No. 5 is a good guess to but not correct.

    hint: the answer has something to do with the word sofa

    Continue to think somewhat musically making particular note of the word 'sofa' and you will be half way there..

    Evangeline, I think you nailed it! It's listed in the directory as "GFF F by Gianfranco Ferré." Let's see what Mr. K says. Neat!

    Oh...my...yes! YES! YES! evangeline!

    GFF F by Gianfranco Ferré is it! Very good!! (GFFF notes on the music scale--'FACE'= spaces and 'EGBDF'= lines on the Treble Clef lines and spaces, remember?)

    Tough to find in the directory because putting GFFF into the Basenotes directory gets you ...nothing! GFF gets the right fragrance as the final F is for Female and somehow is not part of the input that gets you to the listing.
    I thought that would be a good stumbling block at the very end of the puzzle but you listed the answer anyway! WTG!

    Thanks to all for playing. I tried to make one a bit tougher this time.

    There are three kinds of people in this world: those who understand math and those who don't (four out of three people surveyed agree with this).

    Great solve, Evangeline, and excellent puzzle, Mr. K!!! I can't believe you had me looking for synonyms for "sofa." I feel like an idiot, but I don't mind. :-)

    Good guess, Evangeline. Haunani, please...I don't even get it now with explanations. Like I was saying...illiterate...

    Do=C Re=D Me=E Fa=F So=G La=A Ti=B Do=C Music Scale


    'sofa' = so + fa = G + F ("you are half-way there" the other two notes: fa = F + fa = F) to give GFFF

    Oh my gosh - I'm really shocked! Hooray!! Thanks kbe!

    Well, reading music definitely helped with the puzzle (as did your clue with "sofa" kbe - I was going to guess Burberry's The Beat before you added that, lol!) but to be honest, I didn't even check the fragrance directory, and now I see that might have confused me more than helped - those similar looking and sounding names of GF's are so annoying!) But I instantly thought "g-f-f-f..what the heck?? Is he going for Gieffeffe, by any chance?" I had no idea that Ferre actually has a fragrance called "GFF F" (!!) ....and I think it's ridiculous, frankly, but it did make for a fun puzzle!

    dd - the musical/singing technique kbe's referring to is called "solfège", or "solfa"...which is where his "sofa" clue comes in.
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    Owww, thank you for educating me a little. I never knew that musical notes have a letter correspondent. I am almost sure it is not like that where I am from. It is good to learn something new. So, double-good puzzle!

    I got as far as looking for "solfege" but that was not far enough. I took music classes in school but it was my weakest topic. Speaking of music, not only I can't read it, but I can't sing either. On someone's birthday, I lip sync, that's how bad I am.

    dd - I'm quite sure you know that musical notes and keys are represented by letters ...I think it's just been over-explained a little bit, lol.


    I have to run, but someone should definitely post another puzzle (thanks again, kbe!) Let's keep this thread goin'!

    I swear I did not know about the letters.

    You didn't grow up with the movie A Sound of Music then. Here is the lesson from Julie Andrews:



    I'm still feeling silly for thinking couch, chaise, lounge for the sofa clue. :-)

    Ms. H now that you mentioned it, I vaguely remember something about those little songs in The sound of music. I was never a big fan of musicals, I am afraid. I am pretty sure I was not speaking English at the time, so I surely watched with subtitles. I did learn something today.
    Who is next?
