Here are three recent TTAB decisions in Section 2(d) appeals. I'm not giving any hints, so you're on your own, my friends. How do you think these appeals turned out? [Answer in first comment].

[Section 2(d) refusal of the mark R.C. for "essential oils for aromatherapy use, in view of the registered mark RC COSMETICS & Design (shown immediately below) for "cosmetics and cosmetic preparations; cosmetics and make-up" [COSMETICS disclaimed]].
