    I would (as Im sure many others might also) choose Guerlain.

    Derby: my debonair evening scent
    Habit Rouge EDP: My All-day - anyday companion
    Vol de Nuit vintage extrait: My special occasion / spoil-myself scent

    Comme des Garcons

    I like a majority of their fragrances, and they tend to be unique/quirky - and not outrageously overpriced.

    Cool Re: If you could pick your fragrances just out of 1 brand

    Looking at my wardrobe the majority I have are either from Xerjoff or Creed, so Xerjoff easily wins for me out of those two.

    Nio: This is my favourite from this line, so I use this for those special occasions, romantic evenings out with the mrs, or on those days where you just think what the heck, I like it so if I run out I'll have to get another bottle

    Kobe: This is my any time of the day, fresh lift me up scent.

    Uden: There's just something about this one that makes it so unusual, but in a good way. Along with Nio, this is a fragrance I've had loads of compliments whilst wearing, so I use it simply when I feel like a change from the other's I have.

    Fiero: I mostly use this during the evening or on colder days, due to it being a spicy/aromatic citrus, that has a lovely warmth to it.

    I agree with Sorcery on Guerlain:

    Derby EDT, elegant and floral with magnificent leather
    Habit Rouge EDT: the great one I reach for when I can't decide on anything else!
    Habit Rouge EDP (Beau Cavalier in North America): I love the agarwood
    Shalimar EDP and EDT
    Shalimar Eau Legere, sadly discontinued: wonderful vanilla
    Jicky
    Mouchoir de Monsieur: lavender with civet and a touch of vanilla

    I'd go with Serge Lutens. Between Chergui, Ambre Sultan, Vetiver Oriental, and Gris Clair - I'm good to go any time and for any occassion. The most consistently quality house I've yet encountered.

    CHANEL

    Antaeus – Darkly sensual leather and beeswax
    Bois des Îles – Sweet, aldehydic sandalwood
    Chanel No 19 – Crisp and green, versatile, works anytime, anywhere
    Cuir de Russie – Luxurious leather, a little bit naughty and nice
    Sycomore – Elegant, crisp, floral vetiver

    And there are of course more fantastic Chanels I haven't mentioned. My second choice for a house would be Guerlain, hands down. I would really be happy with either, to tell the truth.

    Creed so far, among houses I know.

    The "indispensables" would be:

    GIT
    Windsor

    To rotate according to weather and mood:

    Tabarome Millesime (I must be the only one to like it more than the Vintage) - great winter scent
    Original Vetiver (moderately hot weather)
    OR Citrus Bigarrade (very hot weather - Bois de Cedrat or Selection Verte can be substituted under this chapter in different years)
    "disappeared" love - Verveine Narcisse (no juice left)
    RSLavender (only once in a blue moon)
    Bois du Portugal (same - great fragrance, just not so much my style)

    I am quite familiar with most of the other Creeds, including the female ones, but don't think I like them as much. There are some which I admire but I wouldn't wear.

    There are a couple which give me headaches: SMW, Royal Delight, and Original Santal, for instance.

    I agree with you. Their style satisfies me more than any other house does. Plus, they have a relatively large portfolio - so many scents to choose from. With the exception of MKK, I tend to use random SLs for random occasions. With MKK, I'm more selective over when I wear it.

    it is tough to say. designer would be ysl but Creed would be the niche.

    Creed

    1. Millesime imperial for the summers, great versatile fragrance

    2. Bois du portugal for cooler weather, professional and a sexy fragrance that James Bond would wear

    3. Virgin island water for my more festive days and vacations

    4. Vintage tabarome for important and formal occasions

    5. Acier alumium the essence of sex candidate for sure this reeks sexiness

    6. Royal english leather for work

    7. green irish tweed for any occasion, it is right anytime

    8.Vetiver for the warm weather but still feel mature and professional

    9.Tabarome millesime for a professional fresh scent

    10.Silver mountain water for a casual fresh scent

    I'd have a tough time living with just one house, as I don't really like more than two or three from anywhere...

    YSL

    M7 - Evening, cooler weather
    Rive Gauche PH - Anytime, anywhere
    Kouros Fraicheur - Day
    Opium Eau d'Orient - Evening, warm weather

    Creed or Guerlain; can't decide.

    Lots of scents I love with those two. More with Creed, but the scents I love from Guerlain are hard to match.

    L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme EdT and EdP

    Off the top of my head, I'm actually thinking about Davidoff. Consider some of their offerings:

    Cool Water and all the flankers: Fine aquatics
    Good Life: Great lemon
    Adventure: Good Woody scent
    Silver Shadow Altitude: Great aquatic type scent
    Echo: Used to be a favorite of mine

    I don't know many other houses that could be as good and versatile as Davidoff, and still not break the bank.

    To second the posts on this board, I could most likely stay either within the boundaries of Guerlain or YSL or Creed

    My house of preference would be Guerlain. Home of extraordinary and mysterious Mitsouko.

    I'd probably have to go with Serge Lutens as well, but CDG wouldn't be very far behind.

    I've got to do justice to the houses I've thought could be my exclusive house: once it was Guerlain, then it was L'Artisan, then it was Caron, then it was Diptyque.

    I think it's still Diptyque.
