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.


** Every now and then, we try to update the list of fragrances that have been used on this thread. If you wish, you can refer to this list (see below these rules) and see which scents have been placed so far. The list does not prohibit you from re-posting a fragrance that was used before. Just try to make sure it hasn't been used too recently and provide different clues.

Hannibal, I have a headache, remember? :eek:

But a virtual Teaser! Great idea!

Kicking off with my beloved scent. Habit Rouge?

Correct, Murdock! You've proven yourself a worthy member (and husband), solving the puzzle despite your headache! ;)

OK, this is one I took myself (and edited), probably a little harder:

Baffled!! Not funny for you when the first guess is right.

Right, I will restrain myself (almost impossible):

L'air du désert Marocain? With Rock Rose in the heart notes?

Nope, I'm afraid that's not it, but the rose certainly plays a large role.. keep guessing people! :)

Rose Water or L'Eau Rose? Possibly Ecume de Rose although I don't really see foam on that water..

Well, if that's an aircraft i see, and that's flak i see, and that's a rose i see ... then it's the No. 88. :D

You got it, scentemental :) Thanks for guessing everyone.

Yes, Libery Fizz is one of the Belles de Ricci (the original green one with the pink top). It smells like tomatoes and rapsberries and I love it for summer. I had no idea it was actually called that until I came here...just thought of it as Belles de Ricci..."the green one". :)

Rasa?

You got it my friend. Congratulations.

Czech & Speake No. 88 it is.

Ra is the Egyptian sun god, but Ra is also the abbreviation for Radium, number 88 in the Periodic Table of Elements. You will notice that the picture had Ra written out clearly.

The piano keys. The number of keys on a piano is 88 (36 black and 52 white).

Which clue gave it away?

scentemental



--------------------------------------
The image of Ra is seen = Racine by MPG

Excellent guess Rockford. I wished I had actually thought of that? :)

Angel?

Pictures referring to the Jazzmusician Sun Ra, who claimed that he was of the "Angel Race" and not from Earth, but from Saturn?
On his 'Spaceship Lullaby' is a song called Perfume Counter.

Pfffff, this is a difficult one. But....fun!

UPDATE: :D There I am in the early morning trying to make some sense of this and......someone else solves it!!

But: great Picture Teaser and a very clever answer. Congratulations :thumbsup:

It was the 88 keys. After that I was pretty certain, but I was googling around trying to link Ra to it (been a long time since I learned the periodic table back in high school... diabloical of you!). I was thinking "hmmmm, is he symbolically linked to roses at all?" "Is there anything mournful or melancholic about him?" (nope, that would be anubis). Then I just went ahead and logged my guess.

So I guess I'll put out the next one. A bit of an easy one to get us going this monday morning:

My Queen, then?? (I just found out that they were married :eek:)

Musse, you are on the right track with 'McQueen'. Only it is not Alexander. Another McQueen and ....who is that lady on the other picture?
Think "oldish movies''.....and then start thinking in French.

Alright, maybe it is not as easy as I thought.
A perfume from a French House, it is even in my wardrobe and in the Directory.

Riannon, that picture seems to be Steve McQueen.. I believe he played in The Getaway with Ali MacGraw, which was released as Guet Apens in France... so that would make it Guerlain's Guet Apens, no?
