    Default Can we name all the bottles in this news photo?

    Twolf posted the link to this New York Times article and photo.

    I was surprised that, as I focused on the bottles, so many were identifiable. Can anyone correct me or pick out the ones I missed?

    Bond No. 9, two Frederic Malles, The Different Company, L'Artisan, Byredo, Guerlain Bee Bottle (I think), J'Adore, Issey Miyake, Annick Goutal in Vosshall's hand. Behind the Different Company's bottle, that could be Bulgari Au Thé Blanc.

    Crap! If only I were insensitive to most of the modern musks.

    Well, there are also several empty Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Yellow Label Brut Champagne bottles among those on the window sill..

    There's a Heeley's * I think * - on the right when you look at the pic.

    The third / fourth from right may be Balienciaga Paris rather than a Bee, I think? The far right does look Heeley-ish but maybe a bit fat - the logo looks like Body Shop? Not sure.

    Maybe they hang out in there, drinking champagne, putting on the perfumes and staring at that sort-of-awful picture on the wall.

    That was what I thought as well, Dimi - it *looks* like Heeley's Ophelia.

    I thought empty booze bottles were tacky for an office.

    L'Artisan is Verte Violette, I think.

    I think I see a Hermes Un Jardin -- which one, I can't be certain, although, if it's anything like mine was, then it's an oxidized bottle of Un Jardin En Mediterranee.

    Yes! Sipping champagne, spritzing fraggies, getting tipsy, and throwing corks at that painting!

    By the way, Quarry, I love your new avatar. Makes me sad to think we have no space program now. Miss Piggy would not approve.

    kbe ~ You're so worldly.
    Mimi ~ Dimi concurs and who could argue?
    Mr. R ~ Good eye.
    Volley ~ Yep, 3 Malles and 2 Bonds.
    Fleurine ~ ROTFL
    Twolf ~ Good tweaking.
    Aiona ~ Oh, yeah, that looks right.
    Lilybelle ~ Thanks, yeah. "Pigs in Space."

    So we're going to hit the champagne, sniff scents, make fun of the artwork, and then, apparently, make microwave popcorn.

    Gawd this is like whisky bottle spotting! How do I get myself into these obsessions?

    I think the two Bonds are The Scent Of Peace and Chelsea Flowers.

    Oh, you went way too cerebral on this one, Lil. Obviously, while you were in the library, I was watching Pigs in Space.
