    Default You can only keep 5 from your collection..

    Imagine; You can keep 5 fragrances from your collection, and it`s important to find something that will cover all requirement..Consider it carefully!

    -I have thought of this "backwards and forwards", (it will never happen) and conclude that I would keep these from my collection:

    -All occasions, all seasons, all attire, signature scent: CREED HIMALAYA,and AMOUAGE DIA
    -Autumn, winter, chilly weather, formal, evening, bar, party, dinner, club etc: FREDERIC MALLE MUSC RAVAGEUR and DIVINE `L HOMME SAGE.
    -Casual, spring, summer, daytime, work, weekends, summer-holiday etc: CREED EROLFA.

    Really hard. Looking through my wardrobe, it would have to be:

    Making me feel good: Zino Davidoff, Balenciaga Portos

    This list is only applicable at this particular moment and I reserve the right to change my mind...

    I couldn't possibly do this. It'd be hard enough to pick five to keep from each of my favorite houses, much less five total.

    Cool Re: You can only keep 5 from your collection..

    Oslo, I don't need to imagine. I'm well employed (at least till Friday) but in these tough times I can't re-buy Jean Patou PH, Vintage Tabarome, Richard James and even the underrated Roma Uomo is a stretch.

    *sigh*


    OK here we go:

    1 Himalaya------------------------It still feels like tap dancing in heaven.
    2.Antaeus or Bulgari Black-------Welcome to the sophisticated forces of evil.
    3.Habit Rouge---------------------Best in cold weather, but cold or warm the spotlight follows . . .
    4.Guerlian Vetiver----------------Because spring and summer are upon us.
    5.Alfred Dunhill Original (1934)-Masculine, elegant, formal, perfectly balanced leather an floral heart.
    Old School!
    ( Incidentally I confess to being amused when someone young worries about "Smelling like an old man. " Have you sniffed the aquas and the pop crap at the mall? Or some niche houses I'm too civil to mention?
    Gentlemen, you should really worry about " Smelling like a little old lady. " )

    Cheers,

    Mario

    P.S. Someone did mention HAVANA, right?

    For billion reasons:

    Mouchoir de Monsieur
    Eau d'Hermes

    For wearability:

    Helmut Lang EdC (I find myself reaching for it very often, it never bores me)
    Guerlain's Imperiale or Santa Maria Novella Colonia (not in my top 5, but I usually wear one of these two when nothing else seem right)

    For special occasions and wrist sniffing sessions:

    Santal Noble or Eau des Iles.

    Something I have to squeeze in, although I've already reached five:

    LV Uomo
