Hello and welcome to the first day of our June challenge! If you missed the description of our new Richard Armitage gRAphics project, you can read about it in yesterday’s blogpost.
Today we have a competition between John Thornton and Sir Guy of Gisborne. Our contributions come to us from april73 who requested a contest to determine who is sexier. In case you didn’t know, april73 has a French blog with fanfiction, poetry and other items of interest: April’s Violet. Thank you, april73!

As you can see, I was clearly influenced by Old Spice men’s products. I churned through a few notions before settling on this concept. I thought of comparing candles and torches, surrounding the figures in smoke, and adding the factory and castle. Finally, I decided to incorporate the factory and castle on men’s perfume bottles.
Initially, I was going to name the products “Old Spice” and “Older Spice” but then “Old Smolder” and “Older Smolder” popped into my head. The scent name “Industrial Strength” came quite readily but I needed to think about Guy’s characteristics a bit before thinking of “Medieval Ambition.”
Since this is a contest, feel free to vote in the poll below! Note: If you can’t see the poll, you can try a different browser or click the following hyperlink to be taken to polldaddy: Who has the better smolder?
Can you think of some other scents for different Richard Armitage characters?
