    Default Pick -One-, No 'Top Three'

    I know, I know... Gun to your head pick only ONE scent forevermore, many folk would entertain the idea of saying, "Okay, then, go ahead and shoot".

    BUT... here's mine, and it's not even a scent I wear VERY often, anymore. I've gone through an extended oceanic phase, and I'm often entranced by my Happy Sea Trio of Erolfa, Bulgari Aqua, and Mare... However, my own Gold Standard if not for style than by its lasting power in my Frag Happy Zone is:

    Guerlain Vetiver.

    (Which actually gave me second thoughts about the blind buy on first wearing.)

    Okay, no waffling -- If you had room for one scent, pick it.

    I'm starting to get the feeling that questions like these are being posed by bloggers or bloggers to be.

    So I'll second Envy.

    I would have to go with Kouros.

    Honestly, when I wear this one I feel that if all of my other fragrances were to disappear, I wouldn't even mind.

    As of today, it would have to be Musc Ravageur still.
    (But Chergui, Noir Epices, JHL, Patou pour Homme and Versailles pour Homme are very, very close behind in the running.)

    Right off the top of my head, here are my top hoices:

    Philtre d' Amour - Guerlain
    Corps et ames - Parfumerie Generale
    Vetiver Tonka - Hermes
    Alpona - Caron
    Irisia - Creed

    I'd probably choose Alpona for the one scent I'd wear for the rest of my life - it is multifaceted enough for most occasions and moods, IMO.

    God, If I had to wear Geurlain Vetiver I would put the gun to my head myself........lol (just kidding).

    Mine would have to be Boucheron PH, it just has it all for me.

    Old formulation or new, though? THAT is the question.

    inner-directedly: Villoresi Sandalo (my holy grail, I suppose)
    outer-directedly: Acqua di Parma (it works anywhere, anytime)

    Ultimately, I'm inner-directed.

    Just one???? Crap. With a gun to my head I'd probably blurt out Musc Ravageur...but after just a week I'd be missing Bvlgari Black, Lolita Lempicka au masculin, Clinique happy, & Kenneth Cole Reaction, & Mugler Cologne like crazy!!!

    If I had to answer right now, which I guess I do, since I am, I don't know how I could go without the Jalaine Patchouli that is holding me in its warm embrace as we speak.

    if I get two more, I would pick Chanel no 19 as my old stand by staple, and
    Tabac Blond, because she is my first passionate love in the realm of perfume.
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. 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." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

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