    I've been gone for quite a while, and come back to find I have to pick four frags?! Yikes!

    After much thought, I had to look at it from the angle of "quick, pick 4! and run", and which ones would I grab first. Here are my choices:

    24 Faubourg
    Lolita Lempicka
    Coco
    Ivoire de Balmain

    Now, we're talking full bottles here right? Do we get to pick four more if they're half empty?

    This was difficult.

    Philtre d' Amour
    Shalimar Eau Legere
    Aimez Moi
    Summer by Kenzo

    The man gets to bring onto the island:

    A*Men
    Corps et Ames
    Ysatis (he's open minded about what he wears....)
    Vetiver Guerlain

    Unfortunately, many of my faves are d/c'd or changed: alpona, first, vent vert, so that made the choices just a little easier.

    Great question!!

    Jicky extrait

    That went smooth I obviously have too many fragrances.

    Yeah, that's a good way of thinking about it and the way I ended up doing mine FIRST, but my 4th choice changed when I realised I needed a little more variety... nail-biting nevertheless!

    I must wrench the nail from beneath my fingertips to type this, while I wipe the drips of water from my forehead (from the water torture) to see the screen. Yeah, this is painful.

    In trying to limit myself, the only way I've been able to soothe my heart is to say this list could change. But that's the whole point--that it wouldn't. Why. Why would a person do this to themself? It is truly an exercise in organization and restraint. Brilliant--absolutely brilliant--but inherently evil.

    I was actually waiting to see when a Desert Island list would surface, in the short time I've been hanging around BN!

    It has to be available, huh, not discontinued, too. Had to do that too.

    Oh but wait, I need a woody frag (Jardin en Mediteranee). And a light oriental (Sensuous?). And. . . .

    Never mind. Even with my relative lack of experience, this is haaard.

    Oh, hold on. I thought you meant what 4 frags you'd have waiting for me!
    Drats! I haven't even smelled any of them, just heard stories . . .

    I'd bring:

    Guerlian Vetiver
    Dunhill for Men 1934 (which, judging by the reviews, you haven't smelled either.)
    Nicole Miller for Men

    I'm only at the beginning of my fragrance addiction - my nose is still being educated - so I would expect that these would eventually change drastically, but here goes for now:

    O de Lancome - I've been wearing it forever, and have never found a citrus that I prefer.
    Sensuous - lately it's just what I want to smell like; I keep going back to it
    Avignon - I would definitely need an incense, it's one of my favourite notes
    ...and maybe Lolita Lempicka?

    I don't know - I think I haven't yet met my fourth "desert island" fragrance yet. I feel like I could actually use one of the big classics in place of the LL, but the ones that I've tried so far (No 5, Mitsouko) don't working for me. So the list above is how it would be if I had to decide today, but luckily it isn't carved in stone or anything.

    Ormonde Jayne Woman is "fierce", as they say on America's Next Top Model of a really good walk...It is a cool wind whipping tangled vegetation - if it were a film it would be the Blair Witch Project. Taking Leesee's other faves, I feel more comfortable with the dewy lilies in Le De, or the sumptuous richness of Amouage Gold, but I have to admire Woman. It is Murasaki I am curious to try from L's list, as I have been tipped off about that one by a friend.

    I heard that Shiseido reformulated Murasaki a few years ago. I haven't tested the fragrance lately, since I have a few unopened bottles still. Hopefully you will get the chance to sniff and/or purchase what would be called the original version.

    Two permanent, hands-down, can't-live-without-them selections:

    Other two are of-the-moment; most likely will change (I think I'm just nostalgic; modern scents don't appeal to me recently):
