    Talking If you could wear only one house forever?

    Ok so I'm quite literally laid up at the moment and to amuse myself I've been browsing the web for scent. Just looking not buying.... You know

    It occurred to me which non niche house I would wear if I could only choose one which was easily accessible on every high street.

    I know which house mine is but which is yours?

    Non-niche you say.

    Mmm either Chanel or Guerlain.

    I used to be totally a Guerlain gal, but if the question relates to what is attainable from a house in current formulation and not the vintage back catalogue of fame....then I am probably Chanel right now.

    Let's imagine I lose my whole current perfume wardrobe, there is nothing vintage available as market prices make these even more expensive than high-end new fragrances, I can go to only one house with the insurance companies money (sorry taking your original question and adding all sorts of extra definitions). Then I am going to CHANEL to re stock. The rest will take years to find and replace.

    Although I just re-read your post, I must admit I was including LEs and so on.

    Alityke I saw on another thread you were in great discomfort - wishing you a speedy recovery from that soon.

    Non-niche only ? - Guerlain, followed closely by Chanel and Givenchy.

    Get well soon, Ali.

    I'd have to go with the house of Guerlain. Thank goodness we'll never have to find out, lol.

    I hope you feel better soon, Alityke!! Which house would you pick?

    Guerlain, and close 2nd choice would be Chanel.

    I should say Estee Lauder, though, as I wear quite a few of those, and it is an American house, and the prices are reasonable -- they are loyal to their older customer base. They keep their classics and do not discontinue them.

    Thank goodness we do not have to make a decision like that!

    Thank you all for the good wishes. You'll be delighted to know I only ever let myself bitch and whine for 24hrs.

    Looking at my wardrobe I guess I'm a Dior girl. The sheer breadth of the range comes closer to meeting my whims than others.

    For those ahem.... Romantic times -The Poisons
    Assertive work days - Miss Dior or if I'm feeling Thatcherish Diorella
    Relaxed work days - Dune
    Laid back sunny jeans days - Escale a Portofino
    Pretty dress days - Diorissimo
    Winter warmer - Dioressensce

    Yes the vintage versions are all more beautiful but if I could have only the one high street house. Dior would be it

    Yeah, when I think "available on every high street" here, I think...

    ...Time to get a new hobby, then.

    Probably Dior for me, but I'd hardly be thrilled about it.

    Oh my! This is tough. I will have to say ... Hermes , followed closely by Guerlain.

    Ugh. Such a scary thought! Thank goodness we have so much more to choose from. I am so grateful.
    I send thee this sweet perfume a fragrance to the fragrant, as one would offer wine to the god of wine.

    I don't think so, it would feel as my nose and senses were being hijacked by a dictator.

    Not sure if I'd go for Dior or YSL but it would be one of these two.
