    Default The longest message ever written- aka your "dream team" list

    What is your absolute "dream team" in terms of frags, I mean, if money, the sheer quantity of frags and even the fact, whether they are discontinued or not would not matter, which "ideal wardrobe" would you put together? I am going to start writing about my favorite and almost "too ideal to be true"- fragrance wardrobe now, irrespective if I actually own this frags already, nor if they are on my to test/already tested-list or not, irrespective if they belong to mass-market, designer or niche.
    And will try not to leave out any title and any fragrance house:

    My (seemingly) realistic scenario, maybe reachable in a few years, since I already own a tiny fraction of these frags:

    Armani PH (my fave one)
    Ungaro III
    Trussardi Uomo
    Grey Flannel
    Halston Z14
    Knize Ten
    Le Vainqeur by Rance 1795
    Esencia Loewe and Loewe Para Hombre
    La Martina Hombre
    Chanel Antaeus
    Eau Sauvage by Dior
    Hugh Parsons Yellow
    Blenheim Bouquet, Opus 1870 and Endymion by Penhaligons
    BDP by Creed
    Very Valentino
    ADP Colonia and Colonia Assoluta
    Rocabar by Hermes
    Mouchoir de Monsieur by Guerlain

    And now, the more elusive part, the more hypothetical one, since I own even less of these frags:


    add ALL the aforementioned frags, to the next ones
    Floris No. 89, Limes and No. 127
    Creed REL, Royal Scottish Lavender, Cypres-Musc, Cuir de Russie, Bois de Cedrat, Windsor, Orginial Vetiver, Vintage Tabarome and Millesime Imperial

    Crabtree & Evelyn Sandalwood and Crabtree & Evelyn West Indian Limes
    Von Sierstorpff
    Acca Kappa Cedro and Muschio Bianco
    YSL PH and YSL PH Concentree

    Ungaro II
    Faconnable PH and Face a Face by Faconnable
    Zino Davidoff
    Helmut Lang Cuiron
    almost anything by Etro


    I did it, I shared my utmost secret fragrance dreams- capable to bring down almost ANY bank account! So which frags would you choose, if you had the possibility to choose ANY frag and money, as well as the often long time, the exclusive places and the fact, that some of them might be vaulted, limited edition or discontinued were NO issue? Like in my case, multiple choices are permitted, I mean one regarding a more realistic, a truly optimistic and a downright lavish scenario.
    So, feel free to explore your utmost daring fragrance fantasies and to share them with all of us.

    Ha yes a month ago I might have decided to add BK, but lately i find it much too sweet and nondeveloping, I much prefer A*Men as a gourmand.
