    Price being no object, if you could wear only one scent until the end of time, what would it be and why?

    Such a tough question... That scene must be quite, gentle, soft and mature, right? Let me see... My lifetime perfume should be Opium pour Homme.

    I got this one after reading your daughter's comment about the penguin pool actually. A few weeks later I received a sample of Montale Sandflowers and I'll be damned if they aren't extremely similar. But the Sandflowers has got an INCREDIBLE longetivity which I really don't think Aqua Motu has. So if you'd like something that stays and stays but is just like the CSP I suggest you contact mainsonstinky here on Basenotes and at least buy a sample!

    My own choice would probably be Daim Blond.

    For me, it is Very Irresistible for men. Although quite a bit of people here think it boring, it is just enthralling for me. Besides, I have always loved sweets :P

    I WAS going to say Eternity. I just tried it on for the first time since becoming a junkie,.. and for some reason it smells completely different than I remember. Its not a very pleasent smell. Eternity was basically the only thing I've worn for the past 15 years so I figured it would stand the test of time.

    With that out, and my L'artisan package yet to arrive,. I'm giving my vote to Chanel Allure Homme. I love it, chicks love it, and it works well with my usual atmosphere without much of a concern for seasons.

    I use to like Eternity as well before, but now it gives me a headche, I like Very Sexy For Him which smells like Eternity but much better.

    Hi all,

    Oooooh, such a tough question! I LOVE my SMN "ACQUA DI CUBA", YSL "KOURSO", LORENZO VILLORESI "PIPER NIGRUM", MPG "EAU DES ILES",
    SMN "PATCHOULI", MPG "ROUTE DU VETIVER", DIPTYQUE "L'AUTRE",
    L'ARTISAN "DZING!" GUERLAIN "HABIT ROUGE" and soooooo many other fragrances that I do NOT presently own (such as LERGE LUTENS MKK or MONTALE). That being said, IF, if I had to choose only ONE for the rest of my life...I continue to choose CREED TABAROME MILLESIME!

    The one scent....Nicole Miller for Men. Without a doubt my absolute favourite....with so many others I own now, I save it and horde it like a prisoner. However, I've never come across something that was so conflicting yet inviting...all the frag notes contradict each other yet still work together...such a wonderful blend. And I'm a scotch fan, so the boozy note is a real nice thing....lol!

    Default Re: One scent for the rest of your life.

    Somebody mentioned earlier thats its strange that so few niche frags have come up. I think its because if you had to wear something for the rest of your life something terribly unique would start to be boring or maybe even awkward. If you asked the same question about cars I'd bet very few people would pick a Bugatti, sometimes its just not appropriate.

    If I had to wear one scent for the rest of my life it would be Emporio Armani He, a very close second would be Givenchy pour Homme, which I got as a random gift from my grandmother, because she found a gift set(4.2oz bottle and refill) for $8.50canadian.

    Default Re: One scent for the rest of your life.

    If I could only choose one (what a horrible thought), I would want something that I really love, that is ALSO versatile, not something that is MERELY versatile.

    My top three contenders would be YSL M7, YSL Kouros and Chanel Antaeus, probably in that order.

    This would be an excruciatingly difficult, perhaps impossible, decision to make. I would have to choose one from among the following:

    - Chanel Egoiste
    - Caron L’Impact de Pour un Homme
    - Czech & Speake No. 88
    - Czech & Speake Neroli
    - Boucheron Jaipur Homme EDP
    - Clive Christian 1872
    - Chanel Bois des Iles

    Its funny to see a lot of the same frag popping up, Egoiste, Geir and No.88 have come up three times or more each, probably others.

    How about a compromise....

    For spring/summer, due to the amount of compliments I've received lately, I wouldn't mind wearing Kenneth Cole Reaction each & every spring & summer.

    For fall/winter, I'd wear Bulgari Black

    And I'd sneak a few squirts of CK be whenever I could.

    This question is implicitly in my mind whenever I'm wearing a fragrance--any fragrance. Could this one be me always? Could I make it? Could it make me?

    I'd go with Guerlain's Vetiver, but L'Artisan's Santal and Voleur de Rose have equal pull for this answer.

    Anyways, I would choose Coco Chanel, because it's my absolutely favorite and the EDT and EDP strengths are actually quite different in personality while still remaining the same scent. It also has a pretty decent line of body products, which is nice to mix things up.

    The Old Spice guy might have been serious, its not exactly ground breaking but its pretty straightforward and won't offend anyone. If you had to wear the same thing everyday until you died there are choices that could be a lot worse.

    Besides, I think we all know someone who plans on wearing Old Spice until the end of time. Or until he doesn't get a bottle for Christmas...at which point he will dig into his arsenal of English Leather....(looks at shoe box of EL, pulls out a bottle, removes top, smells top)"English Leather, Christmas 1989.

    There are so many interesting scents that I would love to choose, but if I'm going to be wearing it for the REST OF MY LIFE, it had better be versatile.

    TM Cologne.

    or Bvlgari PH.

    or Yang.

    I can't decide. So shoot me.

    It would need to be something that would never get boring but still could be used in many situations. I'm thinking Tabarome Millesime or Michael Kors.
