    1. Parure
    2. Diva
    3. Vol de Nuit
    4. Zoe
    5. Oscar
    6. Arpege
    7. Coco
    8. Anne Pliska
    9. Coty Chypre
    10. Must

    I kinda divide them by occasion, season etc.

    my signature: Mitsouko Parfum (any time, any place)

    As for the rest:
    1. ArpĆge (concerts, theatre, company parties)
    2. Coco (company and private parties, dinners)
    3. Femme (autumn/winter private dinners)
    4. L'Heure Bleue (summer nights)
    5. Fracas (black-tie, cocktail parties, opening nights etc.)
    6. Shalimar (another summer evening favourite)
    7. Narcisse Noir (ł deux, theatre, private dinners)
    8. Nuit de NoĹl (obviously season's holidays, also whenever I feel festive)
    9. Bal ł Versailles (elegant events, cocktail party, smart dinner)
    10. Musc Ravageur (dates, parties)
    11. Lipstick Rose (whenever I feel very romantic)
    12. Angel (very universal, wear it to all occassions)
    13. Vanisia (autumn/winter evenings)
    14. Gardenia Passion (summer evenings casual)
    15. Chergui (autumn/winter semi-casual occasions)
    16. Chanel 22 (spring/summer weddings and parties)
    17. Nu (autumn/winter evenings)
    18. Messe de Minuit (autumn/winter private evenings)

    I could probably make another dozen lists, depending on the style and colour of chosen outfit, various occasions, my moods, company etc.

    Nothing to be alarmed about, Glo. Maybe you just haven't noticed how wide my scent range actually is; it's not just indie, alternative, off-beat or even downright weird, I love my Classics, too...

    [waves dorkliy] Hi, new here!

    My top dress-up scents, which are also my top anytime scents......

    1. Passage D'Enfer - As an Episcopalian (Anglo-Catholic) I adore the incense smell in this!
    2. La Chasse aux Papillons- yep, I'm a L'Artisan fan
    3. Ecume de Rose by Rosine - just got this last week. Really unique. I love the rose -ocean mist smell!
    4. Youth Dew - My mother and grandma wore this - never underestimate the power of nostalgia!
    5. Shalimar - see no. 4
    6. Miss Dior - more for daytime events - very fresh and green
    7. Opium - My first real perfume. I wore it all through high school, but I was the dark-haired, quietly intense type so I was able to pull it off.

    9. Bond no.9 Broadway Nite
    10. Arpege
