    Default If You Could Only Wear One House's Frags...

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    If you like Chanel that much you should visit one of their boutiques to smell gems like Cuir de Russie, Bois des Iles, Sycomore, Coromandel and 31 Rue Cambon!

    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.

    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    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.

    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.

    ^^^ what he said.

    With dozens of fragrances to choose from Guerlain is the obvious choice, however I'd choose the even if limited to what they make today.

    Chanel would be my second choice.

    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.

    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?

    Niche and designer (even those that have been around for ages) houses are both guilty of producing lackluster scents that have been over-hyped. It does seem that when a niche house/scent gets praised, there is more tendency for one to view it as over-hype, compared to when a designer house/scent gets praised, deservedly, or not, IMO.

    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.
