If some kind of calamity occurred and for some reason you'd only be able to pick 4 perfumes to wear for the rest of your life, which 4 would you pick?
Not allowed to pick discontinued fragrances. And have to assume that none of your current, "live" choices would get discontinued in the future. AND ONLY LIST 4! Listing and/or is missing the point - I want to force you to make choices.
I should probably have thought about my own answer longer before posting, but I think I'd have to go for Mitsouko, Le Parfum d'Odette by Neil Morris, Summer by Kenzo and Mandragore by AG. Yeah, that'd provide some variety for all moods and weathers...
Ouch. That was hard.

Mitsouko, Rive Gauche, Fracas, A la Nuit.
Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
Badgley Mischka parfum
L'Artisan Tea for Two
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb
Arghh... naming the fourth leaves out too many.
Bvlgari Eau Parfumée au Thé Rouge... but, but, but....

Iviore, Coco, Flowerbomb, No. 5 Only four is being sooo stingy!!!
Read this thread, then took a shower and gave the question due thought. The answers:
1) A Green Scent I haven't met yet--It would exceed all the green tea, angelica and cucumber scents I've sampled to date.
2) A Floral Scent including Lemon Blossom I haven't met yet--Better than Stephanie, CdG Lily and La Chasse aux Papillons.
3) An Orange/Citrus Scent I haven't met yet--Orange blossom and citrus notes accompanied by a resinous, woody base.
4) A Chalky-Ambery-Spicy-Chypre -- A soup of base notes.
Until then ... Nan Green, CdG Lily, Boucheron, Rue Royale.
In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.
Torture I tell you, pure torture!
A La Nuit
Un Bois Vanille
Feminite du Bois
Yep, I think I could live with those!
Jicky, A la Nuit, Tea for Two, Premier Figue Extreme
And then we band together and share one anothers everlasting collection so we'd have more than 4 :P
Narcisse Noir (vintage)
Vol de Nuit (vintage)
Teint de Neige
But I will certainly change my mind tomorrow morning ! ;-)

L'amour fait songer, vivre et croire. Il a, pour réchauffer le coeur, un rayon de plus que la gloire; et ce rayon, c'est le bonheur. (Victor HUGO)
For the rest of my life...my choices..if I had to decide...
Clarins Par Amor
24 Faubourg Eau Delicate
No 19 EDT
This is not easy! I choose SL Cherugi, Bond No.9 Chinatown, Chanel 31 Rue Cambon, POTL Luctor et Emergo. I would really like to also like to have SL Cuir Mauresque and L'Artisan Dzing!
Chanel No. 19 (this would pretty much have to stand in for all greens)
Chasse Aux Papillons (either version)
Stop it! You're traumatizing the community [goes away to sniff Pour un Homme comfort scent]...
A fresh and beautiful springy floral: EN PASSANT
A versatile rose with a seaside aspect: ECUME DE ROSE
A green that is so much more than just a green: EAU DE CARTIER
A rich, warm amber-based bottle of yumminess: AMBRE NARGUILE
Of course this leaves out the earthy violet iris that also must be in my wardrobe. Couldn't you have given us five?!
Green--Estee Lauder Private Collection
Oriental--Chanel Bois des Iles
Floral--YSL Rive Gauche
Citrus--Chanel Eau de Toilette
But I might want to bump the floral and green so I can have an amber and Feminite du Bois or Jicky

Bois Des Isles
A la Nuit
Since even my TOP 10/20 (or TOP 40/50) changes almost daily, I can't do this, at least not seriously, but right here, right now my Big Four would be:
Annick Goutal: Rose Absolue
The Different Company: Sel de Vetiver
Etro: Messe de Minuit
Serge Lutens: Cuir Mauresque
"Wovon man nicht lesen kann, darüber muss man schreiben."
Bois des Iles
Chanel no. 5
but I'd sorta kinda like to throw in Vamp by Ava Luxe for a sweet girly candy now and then!
"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
Parfum d'Empire Ambre Russe
Parfumerie Generale Cadjmere
The Different Company Des Sens et Bois
