    Isn't it great how different our choices are?
    For me it would be Cristobal, Feminite du Bois, "Y" and Iris Poudre.
    But next year my choice may well be something else...

    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

    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.

    I see A la Nuit is getting a lot of love here. Is it something easily wearable by men?

    Hm.
    For me, right now:
    Floral - Hermès Hiris
    Oriental - Maître Parfumeur Or des Indes
    Green - Diptyque Philosykos
    Gourmand/comfort - POTL Luctor et Emergo

    I mean, at least money is not a factor in this choice, eh? Always look on the bright side.

    Maybe not super easily. But I think a lot of men on BN wears it. I´m squeezing out the last drops from my sample and will by a bottle some day.

    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

    Oh that hurt!

    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!

    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:

    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...
