Serge Lutens, as always.
for the rest of your life, which house would you choose?
For me I'd say probably Chanel. I love Egoïste, AHS, AEB, and like Monsieur and Antaeus, I'm still familiarizing myself, but I've liked most of what I've smelled.
I could probably go for Creed as a close second...
and YSL is working it's way up too, lol
Serge Lutens, as always.
At this moment, I'd say Serge Lutens followed by Creed, only because I currently enjoy more scents from these single houses than I do any others. But I have yet to sample a lot of reputable scents from many other houses, so this is probably not going to be permanent.
Well if came down to it Frederic Malle would do me fine.
Without a moment of hesitation I can say Amouage.
Iris Pallida 50ml
Ungaro I 75ml
and more! - http://www.basenotes.net/threads/301...n-Man-and-more
Guerlain feels like the obvious choice for me, followed by Chanel. I could easily spend the rest of my life wearing only one of those houses.
Lutens for me too.
Eau d'Italie, or what may as well be named Studio Duchaufour. I like all their scents and deeply cherish two (Sienne and Baume).
For sheer breadth and versatility I'd go Guerlain, though, though I think Italie's range does quite a good job in the latter department.

Right now, definitely MPG!
in the past YSL or Guerlain
Frederic Malle followed by MPG.

"No Pain, No Gain"
Designer- YSL, Chanel, Guerlain, Armani
Niche- Penhaligon's, Hugh Parsons, Creed, ADP
Chanel, Guerlain and YSL would all give me enough options, i think.
Forgot niche..mark buxton sounds good as well, as does
Serge Lutens as well. However, Frederic Malle and Comme des Garçons would also do the job.
But as much as I love my favourite Chanel fragrances (CDR, BDI, Egoïste, Pour Monsieur, Sycomore, No18 and Antaeus) I have to rank the house of Guerlain just a little higher.
Guerlain, of course. If I am going to be limited, I would want to choose from a plethora of high-quality, versatile fragrances.

Guerlain here too.
Paco Rabanne or YSL. Preferably both
D&G The One / YSL Rive Gauche / Paco Rabanne XS Black / Gucci Envy
Guerlain, maybe even Dior.
second would be L' Artisan

But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.
Creed has what I need - something for every occasion and style.
II est de forts parfums pour qui toute matière/Est poreuse. On dirait qu'ils pénètrent le verre.
Would have to be a choice between Chanel and Amouage.
First of all, that would be horrible. I only really wear stuff from YSL and Thierry Mugler though, with a few randoms. Honestly I'd probably go with Creed, even though I'd go bankrupt.
WTT: Creed SMW for Creed GIT.
Serge Lutens (have been wearing SL scents exclusively since 5th September anyway...)

For me, it'd have to be either Parfums de Nicolai or Hermes. But I'd only choose Hermes is it came with a guarantee that Jean Claude Ellena would remain the in-house perfumer there for life.
~~Huge fan of Hermes, Jean Claude Ellena and Patricia Nicolai!~~

I would go fragrance free before I would consider such a thing.
Montale of course.
Guerlain. Or Chanel. Or Hermes... Can't really choose between these three houses!
Chanel or Thierry Mugler
Want to buy/trade: looking for some escentric molecules kinski, I have a bunch of decants/samples including escentric 02 and escentric 01
Hermès or L'Artisan.
Sniff and let sniff.
Creed for me here...I have not tried any Guerlain or Serge Lutens perfume before and if someone can suggest me something from those lines I would look into it.
Guerlain for me . I would be very happy to just wear Guerlain forever .
For sale. Carnal Flower and Vero Profumo Onda.
I dont have any Malle fragrances but everything that I have tried is simply divine.
The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.
In this order:

In that order. Frankly, I could wear Une Fleur de Cassie for the rest of my life and be happy.
YSL. i dont really understand the hype of the niche houses. most of them are overrated
and produce mediocre frags. some of them pop out of nowhere without any proven history.
there are enough designer houses such as YSL, HERMES. GUERLAINE That had been there for ages , still are, and probably will continue in the future to produce wonderful frags.
YSL or Hermes
Chanel for greens.
Parfumerie Generale for everything else.
So if this happened I'd have to picket Parfumerie Generale until they did a killer galbanum green. (Without amber.) I don't suppose they _have_ a killer galbanum green that I've missed?
Designer - Guerlain
Niche - Serge Lutens
Between them I think they have enough fabulous creations to keep me enthralled.
Easily Creed for me.
Though I've yet to add a single bottle of theirs to my collection: Serge Lutens. Their scents just seem to fit my style...

Probably Hermes, Guerlain or Frederic Malle although I am currently on an SMN binge. I love SL, but am occasionally just in the mood for a refreshing splash and that is something they just don't do.
then Estee Lauder,
Support your local Leonberger rescue.
Guerlain or Malle
If pressed, I suppose I would choose Malle.
