    Default If you were to choose 3 to 4 fragrances to use what would they be?

    Hello,everyone on basenotes I know most of you have a large collection of cologne's or perfumer,but if you had no choice to own only a few colognes what 4 cologne's at the most would you choose? The ones that I probably would choose are the following: summer and spring: L eau d' issey. Fall and winter: jean paul gultier and for my romantic scent's I would choose: versace:the dreamer and joop homme. Please tell me what what few fragrances you would choose for your fragrances year round. I wan't your input for the best summer and spring fragrances,the best fall and winter fragrances and the most romantic fragrances you would choose for your collection if you had no choice.

    That's a toughie. However, after much back and forth in my own mind, I've decided my four would be:

    Paco Rabanne PH
    Guerlain Vetiver
    Jaipur Homme
    Green Irish Tweed


    I picked these because they are all among my all time favorite scents, and they represent the best variety for four frags, in terms of genre, feel and seasons.

    P.S. Can we make it FIVE frags, so I can include Kouros?

    Guerlain Habit Rouge Beau Cavalier

    Great choices. I really do love 3 of your choices. The dremer by versace is unbelievable. Le mal gaultier is amazing. Chrome is amazing. I have never smelled platinum egoiste,but I am sure by your choices it is a great scent also. Thank's replying to my thread.

    It is ok if you wan't to ad in Kouros if you wan't to. I actually own about 15-17 cologne,but I was just curious as to what cologne's people would choose if they had no choice or didn't have the money to spend on multiple cologne's as to what the 4 fragrances they would choose throughout the year depending on the season and also special occasion's like going out with the wife or going out on a hot date.

    I actually have separate fragrances for each of those occasions.

    If you forced me, I probably could do with (at the moment, of course):
    Serge Lutens' Chergui - my all-time beguiling oriental
    EdP Frederic Malle's Une Fleur de Cassie - for my sinful flower moments
    Histoires de Parfums' 1725 Casanova - that's romance IMO
    EdP Frederic Malle's Musc Ravageur - for, yeah, the hot moments, dates whatsoever...

    Creed - Green Irish Tweed.
    Creed - Millesime Imperial.
    Penhaligon's - LP No.9.
    Guerlain L'Heure Bleue.

    However, if you ask me the same question again next week the answers could be completely different.

    It's easy:

    Gucci PH II (Spring/Summer - daily office/romantic)
    Body Kouros (all year around - parties, sex, romantic)
    A*Men Pure Malt (Fall/Winter - daily office/parties/romantic)
    Dior Homme (formal)


    I'd miss something for sport but its better to rather use some cheap deodorant anyway.

    I actually ask myself this same question quite often, and I try to narrow down my purchases... Unsuccessfully, of course.
    So:
    - Eau de Rochas pour homme
    - Meharees L'Erbolario
    - Prada Infusion d'Homme
    - APOM Francis Kurkdjian.

    I'll click the "post reply" before I change my mind... Done!
