Well here are the 4 frags that I prefer more than any others the past six months. Pressed to choose one fragrance? I couldn't...Givenchy Vetyver and Montale - Red Vetyver will have to agree to exist together.
The other two are: Bond - Bleecker Street and CDG - Vettiveru

My newly found absolute favorite fragrance and signature-to-be-for-quite-some-time... ETRO New Tradition.
I find it to be the perfect combination of all my favorite notes: lavender, rose, vetiver, patchouli, herbs...it's very fresh and aromatic, like a damp garden full of herbs and roses. Lasts all day on me (and into the next day on clothes), yet it doesn't have ridiculously strong projection so never seems "perfumey" and always smells natural.
And ETRO even makes a New Tradition shoe shine sponge, how cool is that!

I would have to say, at this point, it would be Creed, BdP, but I tend to hoard it so I do not wear it as often as I would like. I used to do the same thing with clothes, buy a $200 pair of jeans and never want to wear then for fear of damaging them or only wanting to wear them for special times. Anyway, I love the citrusy woody smell of BdP, but my senses have been changing so much lately I do not know how long this will last for.

Oh, it's Escada Pour Homme--I wear it more than anything else, for sure. It's the one scent I own that I cannot imagine myself without.
However, I am still in the whirlwind introductory sniffing/learning/loving stage and my tastes are certain to change like the winds of a long-off Upstate summer. I received a bunch of samples last week and the earth around me began to shake: Evil, thy name is niche...
If by signature, you mean that others can recognize me by scent, then no I don't have one. Too many varied fragrances in my rotation right now. But if I had to choose one, I suppose it would be Chanel PM (1955). Or Dior Homme.Or possibly Boid d'Iris. Then again, if I had the money to spring for a bottle, it might very well be Iris Pallida or Iris Silver Mist.

L'Artisan - Tea for Two has always been my signature. I wear it less often but it is the scent that people only associate with me. No one else I know or been around has worn it so I still have the rights, among my friends/family, at this time.
I have given up on finding that particular scent that defines me. I tend to like groups of things, like Vetiver (Guerlain and Chanel), Caron's (L'A, PuH, #3, Yatagan, Lutens Chergui, a couple of Creed's GV and GIT and Malle (Musc Ravageur) All different. All Nice. MIne

Don't really have a signature scent, but my go to guy has become Chanel Egoiste. This is the finest scent I own. It is so regal, refined, and sophisticated that I feel like it embodies the person I am (or want to be).

I don't have one. I wear something different every day. But before, when I only had 3 colognes, I used Lucky Brand Lucky You the most. I don't use my best scents often; I save them for special occasions. Therefore my everyday scents tend to be something that I don't like as much.
If I had to pick one right now, it would probably be Encre Noire. But, it is hard to get down to even 5. The others right now are Terre d'hermes, CDG 2Man, YSL M7 Fresh, Burberry London and Bvlgari PH Soir. All are bottle worthy.
