Thread: 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?
unico grande amore.
Damn, it's got to be Spirituese Double Vanille. I just re-discovered this in a big big way
PVC and Leather. A Chain and a feather
Jovan Sex Appeal cuz there will certainly be needy women looking for a real G to take away their pain. And nothing says take your clothes off sweet mama like Sex Appeal.
Today - Annick Goutal Duel; no wait, YSL Opium p H; no,no, Terre d'Hermes; umm ...
Amouage Jubilation XXV.
Longivity isn't that great, but since you said we had infinite amounts of it
The critic has to educate the public; the artist has to educate the critic.
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!
Too hard damn it!
Aqua di Parma Colonia Assoluta
Sent you PM. 2 actually. Oh and delete some of your inbox, it says you're full.
oh, and I tested out prada amber ph today, what is it that you like so much exactly?
I liked, but I don't think I "got it" yet. Will try again tomorrow perhaps...
As far as one scent...........
I just cannot decide. Which is why I made this topic, to torture everyone else into a decision!

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.
Aramis Havana without question!

This sounds more like Mission Impoossible than the twilight Zone.....I can never give an answer.
Dior Homme Intense edp and a bottle of Tuscan red!

Santal Noble... hoping it never gets too hot
At your service
Since we get an infinite amount, and because I love to bathe in this stuff anyway, I'm going to say Millesime Imperial, I'll spray it 3 times a day.
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.
IMHO Spirituese Double Vanille , the most perfect fragrance I have yet discovered and never want to be without
I would take ETRO New Tradition.
No one else likes it here (at least not that I ever hear of) It’s probably the most versatile fragrance I own, combining all my favorite elements – lavender, rose, patchouli, subtle spices, and musk. Beautiful beautiful stuff.
“I wanna say something. I’m gonna put it out there. If you like it, you can take it, if you don’t, send it right back…."
If I was allowed to bring something I don't own yet, it would be Vetiver Pour Elle easily. If it has to be something that I already own, then it would be Maitre Perfumeur et Gantier Garrigue.
