    Default Ordinance: 1 fragrance for the rest of your life!

    If an ordinance was issued and you could only wear 1 cologne/perfume for the rest of your life, what would it be?

    (I know that this is a hypothetical question, and it is difficult to answer, especially for people who love perfumes, but this way seems the worship of the one and only..)

    I am assuming we are talking a post-apocalyptic Earth, where we must scavenge to survive? Buildings reduced to mere rubble, vegetation growing over formerly bustling streets, hauntingly devoid of human life? A world where endurance is based on ones ability to bring forth their primal instincts and become a survivor? I choose Carnal Flower.

    What tyranny! Not even a little orange-blossom water?

    I'd probably be content with Eau Sauvage, but at the moment the most beautiful fragrance I know of is Chanel's Cuir de Russie. An animalic floral with a hint of leather. Captivating, albeit, unlike Eau Sauvage, not appropriate for every occasion. Nevertheless, I would choose Cuir de Russie.

    From what I've smelled I would choose Hypnotic Poison Elixir and Dior Homme Intense.
    I still haven't even smelled any niche fragrance, which is very sad.
    From these two, I think that HP Elixir is the best.

    For me that is an EASY choice....the one that started my interest and has NEVER disappointed me...
    Vintage Chanel for Men....it does not get any better...a close runner-up would be Patou Pour Homme...

    Having to wear just one fragrance is kind of like having no fragrance.

    So in that situation, I would choose nothing.

    While not my #1, the answer is easy for me. Montale Red Vetyver, because I just never find a situation where I don't want to wear it.

    Night at home cooking dinner with the wife: Check
    Gigging in a crowded club: Check

    Business Meeting: Check
    TOP 5
    1. Montale Wild Aoud
    2. Amouage Jubilation XXV
    3. Montale Red Vetyver
    4. Montale Aoud Lime
    5. Le Labo Vetiver 46

    I'm thinking Sous le Vent but don't quote me.

    The thing with this one is that it's got a breezy feel (pun intended) - it doesn't try too hard. The front has enough of a kick start to stand in for Eau de Guerlain or a good EDC, then it settles into what feels to me like a 'herbal' quite earthy, reassuring vibe, underpinned by oakmoss, which I appreciate more and more these days (as IFRA seems hellbent on giving us less and less). It is a three dimensional scent - the mossy chypre quality gives it a bit of heft and as it fades at the end of the day there's an arresting warm tail end (which even got me a compliment right out of the blue).

    Which is all just another way of saying it evolves effortlessly thru different movements in the right order, basically. It's a 4 in 1 package. Kevin Guyer noted the phrase 'lived in' as a quality he likes in a scent recently and that's exactly what I get from Sous le Vent - it's a totally unselfconscious composition with a spring in its step. I can wear it anytime, anywhere and it just feels good.

    Puredistance M for me. At the end of the day "M" just becomes an extention of my own scent. I never perspire, even when I go to the gym - so I just get a mild, end of the day, manly smell. When I remove my shirt at the end of a day I smell "M" but it really just smells like me, only a little stronger and better. If I'm stuck with just one, I think I would be happier smelling like myself over the long haul.
