    Default Fun Challenge: You are constrained to 1 fragrance house.

    Your challenge should you choose to accept it: Build a collection of no more than 5 from 1 house (niche or designer) that will keep you relatively happy for the rest of your days. * Optional pick an alternative.

    I'd choose Tom Ford:

    Tobacco Vanille
    Noir de Noir
    Italian Cypress
    Neroli Portofino
    Grey Vetiver

    The above would keep me going very happily.

    If I couldn't pick Tom Ford I'd probably go with Hermes:

    Terre d'Hermes EDT
    Vetiver Tonka
    Ambre Narguile
    Equipage
    Concentré D'Orange Verte
    Conscience is what hurts when everything else feels so good.

    Default Re: Fun Challenge: You are constrained to 1 fragrance house.

    I'll choose Creed:

    Windsor
    Vintage Tabarome
    Green Irish Tweed
    Original Vetiver
    Bois de Portugal
    (Feuille Verte, Spice and Wood, Vetiver 1948, Royal Oud and Angelique Encens as an alternative five)

    Came in to thread thinking YSL but then saw OP's post and thought that Tom Ford is actually the better choice eventhough I only own 1 TF fragrance at the moment. But if I were constrained to one house I'm sure I'll be more willing to slap down the money for TF fragrances.

    Default Re: Fun Challenge: You are constrained to 1 fragrance house.

    Tom Ford:

    Tobacco Vanille
    Amber Absolute
    TF Extreme
    Italian Cypress
    Noir de Noir

    Default Re: Fun Challenge: You are constrained to 1 fragrance house.

    I would choose Dior with:

    Dior Homme
    Fahrenheit
    Midnight Poison
    Hypnotic Poison
    Eau Sauvage

    But they will change the scents after 3 years, and they will not smell the same, so forget Dior.

    Tobacco Vanille
    Black Orchid
    Amber Absolute
    Neroli Portofino
    Grey Vetiver or Tom Ford Extreme

    Tom Ford souds a winner!

    This is a difficult question for me to answer. Most of my favorite fragrances come from different houses and their other fragrances are only so-so for me. Then there are houses that have fragrances that I really like but none that I love. I might Choose Tom Ford because there are many that I like and I truly love Black Orchid. Or maybe Hermes because I love Terre d'Hermes and Elixir des Mervilles. Or maybe even Serge Lutens because of Amber Sultan, then perhaps I could learn to love a lot of their other scents. Tough Question...
    Some Favorites
    1. Amouage Epic man
    2. Dior Leather Oud
    3. Perris Monte Carlo Oud Imperial Black
    4. Le Labo Patchouli 24
    5. Amouage Opus VII
    6. Byredo Bullion
    7. Masque Milano Russian Tea

    Lots of fun reading this thread. Thanks everyone!

    I'm very surprised that no one has chosen Chanel as yet.
