    Default If you had to pick only 4 perfumes to wear from now on, forever...

    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.

    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.

    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!

    I agree. This is WAY too hard. But fun because it made me think. I'm too new to make a final decision, but if I had to choose today, these four could cover a lot of my fragrance needs:

    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

    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

    No, the evil perfume court of FourSniffLandia only allows 4...

    The whole point of this thread is that you really must CHOOSE. And it's meant to make you think and it's meant to be hard!

    "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
