    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.

    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?!

    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...

    Here's an alternative Big Four picked from my most worn scents stats from the past three years:

    Jicky
    Comme des Garçons EdP
    Encens et Lavande
    Folavril
    "Wovon man nicht lesen kann, darüber muss man schreiben."

    Allure Sensuelle parfum - cozy and sexy
    Iris Poudre - uber elegant and appropriate for virtually every occassion
    Chanel Cuir de Russie - classic, lady like and yet a little naughty
    Amouage Gold (men) - bombastic, baroque and glorious

    I find it a relatively easy task to pick my top four fragrances. When asked to pick a top ten I find that my selections vary a great deal depending on the season - these four are core favourites that tend to remain consistent on my lists.

    Agreed! It's also lovely to see so many really unique choices with an expected blend of Chanels and Guerlains in the mix. For me, the most entertaining part of this thread is the myriad of ways in which posters are trying to circumvent having to narrow their choice down to just 4.

    Very hard. And this week's picks wouldn't necessarily be next week's (or even tomorrow's) since I'm still fairly new to fragrance. I think I have to go with fairly complex fragrances to keep my interest up, and therefore I would leave out all of my Vanilla Loves! Yikes!:

    Mitsouko
    Ormond Jayne Woman
    Killian Les Liaisons Dangereuse (there's some vanilla...!!)
    Hermessence Vetiver Tonka (I guess it's not that complex, but every time I wear it I smell something different!)

    Oh shucks..I left out so many that I love.

    Femininite du Bois is still pretty widely available in shops here in Switzerland, for 90 Swiss francs for a 50ml bottle of edp. I read that its going to be absorbed into the Serge Lutens collection, so they'll stop making it in that lovely sculptural bottle and put it in one of Serge's tall, straight bottles.

    Nuka, if you want me to buy a bottle and post it to you, I'm coming to the UK at the end of the month, so I can do it then. Let me know by PM if you want me to.

    And this is me putting off the walk to the bedroom where I'll stand there, scratching my head and looking at the bottles while I choose just 4. Just 4!!!!!
    And I already know 2 of them - Jicky and Madame Rochas.

    Right - you have to understand this is just a spur of the moment thing and it's actually just about the things I love to smell most, nothing to do with appropriateness for any situation or anything thoughtful like that. And that I"d like to add a a 5th with vanilla in it, but I'm torn between Dior Addict and Hypnotic Poison and even Dolce Vita because of that lovely Femininite du Bois base, but that's beside the point.

    Oh and while I'm putting things off, can I just say how many of the fragrances listed above by Noters have made me say 'oooh, yes, that one's really good too!' and how many others have made me say 'that's one I really really must get to smell'.

    Oh hell, I can't put it off any longer; here they are. Nukapai, you're a sadist. Brilliant thread!

    Guerlain Jicky (preferably in edt or even cologne)
    Hermes Hermessence Ambre Narguile
    L'Artisan Parfumeur Dzing!
    Editions de Frederic Malle Iris Poudre

    Wait! Wait! I take it back. I can't believe how much anxiety this choosing is causing me. It is as if somehow I will be held to my short list.

    I must have an Edmond Roudnitska. Must. Either Parfum de Therese or Diorella.
    And how can I forget my ultimate comfort scent, Love's True Bluish Light?

    But what to delete from my list? Help!

    That was hard. I'm not sure about the last 2 either, but I know I would have to have my Alien and my Angel.
    Alien is my "if only, but, but..." scent too; didn't make the list because I wanted to keep in variety! Now I feel as if I've hurt its feelings

    Yes, yeeees, I have made a nefarious deal - and next week, you'll all wake up one morning, only able to use the ones you've listed...

    (But - in all seriousness: I think most of the respondents to this thread have felt surprisingly anxious about having to choose! Myself included. It's been really interesting!).

    Great idea!

    Mine would probably be:
    Vetiver extraordinaire (Malle)
    Ambre Sultan
    Chanel Pour Monsieur
    Kouros

    (It'd be even MORE interesting what kind of men those scents would be attached to! ).

    P.S. I'll have you know this is another CHEAT... because I can't be the only one now going, hmm, which of those could I borrow...
