    Smile If you were only "allowed" to wear two scents for one year, which ones would it be?

    I know that is not realistic, but if you HAD TO make a choice of ONLY TWO, which ones couldn't you be without, and could wear consistently for a year?

    That's such a hard question!!!

    It's suppose to be a difficult question, or it wouldn't be challenging or fun! I have smelled Bvlgari Black, and I cannot really smell the notes in that too much, which is weird, because I have a sensitive nose. Alot of people like it, but I haven't got a clue, with that one.

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    Good question & it is surprisingly easy to answer!
    ANGEL and No.5 edp


    **If I had the option of 3 scents I'd add Farnesiana edp

    Two is extremely hard. I'd probably choose Hypnotic Poison, which I find both comforting and sexy, and Ambre Sultan.

    Based on right now I have to choose Vanille Noire Du Mexique and Lipstick Rose before I have too much time to think about the others.

    Well, I'm not a lover of rubber or tea scents, so that's maybe why I didn't respond to it, but if you enjoy it, good.

    Easy question for me! kai and Jalaine's Patchouli. I wouldn't be happy about it, though. No, not happy at all.

    I did really not expect that it would be that easy for me, but after the Guerlain Week I am sure it will be:
    Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune and Jicky.

    I can't imagine that they would ever bore me and they make me feel good.

    And now it seems I can safely get rid of the ridiculous amount of fragrances in my wardrobe

    In reality, if forced to give up all but two I would probably just let them all go and wear the bitter scent of my tears.

    But since it's just a game, I'll pick Barbier des Isles and Terre d'Hermes. Two versatile scents I love.

    Hopefully that'll never happen, but i'd probably choose Fahrenheit or Égoïste.

    It would be Angel and Bois des Iles. I would be doing a lot of sneaking off to the mall for a whiff of something different though!

    I would wear L'Anarchiste in grumpy protest of the 'year of too many Mondays'. And to remind myself a year is not a life sentence and civility and dignity will eventually prevail Dunhill Edition would get the nod.

    Now, my question is, what dollar amount would it take to get you to actually do it?

    Cartier's Le Baiser Du Dragon Perfume and Comptier Sud Pacifique's Vanille Abricot.

    My usual answer would be Donna Karan Black Cashmere and Guerlain Herba Fresca, but today I'm feeling romantic and I'd choose Jo Malone Vintage Gardenia and Hermes Jardin sur le Nil.

    I just cheated, didn't I?

    It would be SL Chergui and...?(hard time choosing between Un Lys or Fld'O, so I asked my daugther to hide them behind her back)...and I picked Un Lys.

    Not often very hot in summer where I live; so Chergui would be suitable most of the year; and when not..Un Lys would be.

    I just realised I only need two scents! - and now that I've found them; I can stop searching; stop buying blind;...and I'll live happily ever after!

    It would have to be Mitsouko - I think the more I 've been reading about it here recently, I love it - a fragrance with a history and soul.

    Secondly, Chanel No19 - which I have fallen back in love with, after a long absence. I think it must be something about the fresh spring air which lends itself perfectly to that green sparkle.

    This is a question I am asking myself quite often, because I am stressed by owning many frags. And of course it is quite impossible to answer... I have two answers for it, an these two I can´t make a choise between...

    My first pair of perfumes, as I could have as my only two:
    Chanel No 19 and Coco Chanel. They are my two favourite sociable frags.

    My secound pair of perfumes, also possible to have as my only two:
    Mitsouko and L´Heure Bleu. They are my two favourite emotional frags.
    Faves right now: Chanel No 19, Stella Rose Absolute, L´Heure Bleu, Elixir de Merveilles, Samsara.

    Not an easy question, and heaven forbid I should ever have to do it,
    but I would choose Nirmala and Roma (at this moment in time).

    Default Re: If you were only "allowed" to wear two scents for one year, which ones would it b

    I guess I would have to go with my two favourites of the moment: Bond Chinatown and Ormonde Jayne Frangipani Absolute.

    Default Re: If you were only "allowed" to wear two scents for one year, which ones would it b

    Gosh, real tough question. Right now I would pick Bois des Iles and L'heure Bleue. I think I'll have a different answer tomorrow though.

    Now, this is though!

    At this moment I would choose Angel and Mitsouko!
    “I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn't impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.”-Anais Nin

    I would surely keep Arpege by Lanvin and the second would be... damn, now that I'm thinking about it, it IS a VERY difficult question! I would narrow it down to DKNY Women, Ricci's Love in Paris, D&G Sicily and maybe Eclat d'Arpege and then sit and brood about the decision for a long, long time...

    I'd revolt. Slap the cuffs on me now 'cause it ain't happenin'.


    Ok Ok Ok...... Angel and Romance. Haven't worn either in a while so they might not bore me. Then again...

    Ah, H*ll. Get the cuffs back out.
