    Arrow your Holy Grail('s) - from curent collection

    It's almost cruel to ask any Bner to name, One! it's simply impossible! (another definition of Holy grail could be that one would purchase these scents again or already have and still rejoicing )

    mine would be the following...

    Serge Lutens: Ambre Sultan & Cedre
    Different Company: Rose Poivree & Bois d'Iris
    Profumum: Fumidus, Thundra & Olibanum
    Mazzolari: Lui
    Parfumerie Generale: Querelle
    Patricia de Nicolai: New York
    Creed: Silver Mountain Water
    Lorenzo Villoresi: Uomo & Incensi
    Aramis: Havana reserva
    Ungaro: I&II


    one other that i foresee in near future is, Tauer's masterpiece, L'Air desert morocain (i recently tried it again, this time, a spray. It's just amazing...)

    Thumbs up Re: your Holy Grail('s) - from curent collection

    For me all my perfumes are Holy Grail ('s)
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    My Best of the Best:
    Indult Tihota
    Neil Morris October
    Mitsouko EdP (I own a large sample and it trumps the EdT big time--still haven't gotten the pure perfume )
    Frederic Male Noir Epices
    POTL Luctor et Emergo (and who knew? I used to HATE this!)
    Hermessence Ambre Narguile and Osmanthe Yunnan
    Bulgari Green Tea-Extreme
    Flowerbomb

    And of course this list will grow and change the longer I ponder the question, but that's a pretty decent collection of fragrances that I would really prefer not to live without.

    I can name one because nothing else is in the same league IMO. Homage by Amouage is my Holy Grail of my wardrobe.

    I think ,right now, if there is a fire in the house and I have to jump into the flames to rescue only one fragrance it will be..... BdP .
    .... and while I am trying to scape the flames, smoke and chaos I will try to quickly grab GIT risking my life.
    After the fire is over I will look through the ashes for Guerlain Vetiver, Yatagan, Havana, XS and Knize Ten.

    My first love, and still the only scent that evokes a: "Wow, this is ME." when I spritz it on.

    There is no way I can explain how I feel when I wear Orris. It affects me very strongly. I hope to always have it in my wardrobe.

    I agree about Orris. It has a very round, human sort of presence--not very helpful if you haven't smelled it--that I haven't encountered in anything else that I can think of. A full bottle went on the sale page here within the last few months and I was really tempted.
