    Question You must choose ONE!

    You are exiled from your homeland to a place, although identical to you current life, is entirely devoid of any cologne. You are, however, and for reasons not entirely clear, allowed to take ONE bottle from your collection or otherwise, with you to this strange and frightening place. For the sake of the things, we will say that bottle is infinitely filled.
    Yes, you have entered, The Twilight Zone.



    Doodoodoodooh. Which one is it going to be?

    ooohh this again. I have to say I'd go with Erolfa. It's low sillage and simplicity results in it never being annoying or overplayed. Always makes me happy to smell like the sea.

    Ooh, Erolfa is a good choice. It's not quite satisfying enough in winter though, which means I'd have to go with something else.

    Hmm. Prada Amber, perhaps? Well, it could become a bit cloying in the heat of summer. L'Anarchiste? No.. it's too strongly associated with fall in my mind. Antidote? I'm not sure why but no. Ungaro II is just too beautiful for everyday use. Although, if I could only have one scent, would I want to wear it everyday? That is what the choice comes down to for me - do I take my most pleasant everyday frag with the intent of wearing it frequently, or do I take the fragrance I find most beautiful and just wear it on special occasions.

    I don't know which way I'd go in that decision until the moment came, but if I went with the former direction, I'd go with Versace PH. The latter would be Ungaro II.

    I'm thinking Un Parfum des Sens et Bois may be the scent that best fits the middle of that spectrum.

    This is too hard!

    Just cleared out my PMs. Will respond in a second here to yours .

    Prada Amber? Hmm, it's got that barbershop/shave cream kind of thickness and texture, and then dries down to an incensey (lots of myrrh, smooth cardamom, and vanilla - along with at least one semi-unique musk "Nirvanolide" - wish I knew what that smell like on its own.)

    I just think it is a perfectly blended fragrance and the transition from almost sweet and smooth in the top to a dryer, dustier incense base is amazing. One or two sprays of it is enough, anymore than that and it can get cloying.

    Another thing I love about it is the way it straddles the clean/sexy line. It is definitely both clean and sexy, without seeming contrived, imo.

    I am like a father asked to save only one of his children. No way. Kill them all! There is no way I can chose only one. I would leave them all behind but I would be feeling like betraying my dear Route du Vetiver original formulation, the first nich fragrance that I knew I had to have a bottle of. The one that got me hooked on perfume.

    I would take ETRO New Tradition.
    No one else likes it here (at least not that I ever hear of) Its probably the most versatile fragrance I own, combining all my favorite elements lavender, rose, patchouli, subtle spices, and musk. Beautiful beautiful stuff.

    Uuh, tough metaphor
    Id save my oldest son though, it had to be Coolwater if I was in that position.
    It was my first fragrance and still stands out as one of my most beloved ones.
    There are many occasions I cant decide on best suitable frangrance but I cant imagine a single one where Coolwater would feel out of place.

    An unending bottle? Then it has to be Henri IV Dudognon Heritage Cognac Grande Champagne. Not a fragrance, you say? With an unending bottle, I'd use it as fragrance if I had to just to qualify.

    I don't drink, but without fragrances, who knows?

    To be serious, Polo, the original. I don't wear it very often, but if I was the only person on earth wearing a fragrance, I would probably wear it a lot more since it wouldn't be perceived as some sort of cliche or time capsule.

    Love it! I remember that day as well... I haven't been the same since! (Andyjreid don't leave the store without trying Arabie and Ambre Sultan, two of the Serges which in my opinion sum up a lot of the aesthetic of this great house!)

    Anyway to answer the question: I'm going to choose Ambre Sultan, but it'd be really hard to leave Declaration and Rose 31 behind!
