    If a tornado came through and wiped out my stash.... hmm, maybe I'd commence re-stocking with Bel Ami, K10, Kouros, Azzaro pH, and Yatagan. But there are probably 30 or so others that could make that list just as well.

    In the very order that I would purchase them:

    Puig: Agua Lavanda
    Guerlain: Eau de Cologne Imperiale
    Givenchy: Monsieur de Givenchy
    Guerlain: Mouchoir de Monsieur
    Caron: En Avion

    The first three are not negotiable, but If I had trouble purchasing either of the final two, I would consider Blanc Violette and Bal a Versailles.

    That's a pretty easy question, I'd want scents that last and do the job.

    Chrome
    Laguna
    XS
    Aramis
    Obsession

    which wouldn't set me back much and would cover just about any situation. Then I could sit back and bargain hunt for new ones.

    In my case, it's simple: I'd focus on the categories which are under-represented in my scent wardrobe.

    In my case, it's gourmands, so I'd go on a gourmand scents shopping spree.

    Default Re: If you own 50+ bottles: imagine you were to start from none now: what are the first 5 you would

    If I were to purchase ones that I previously owned:
    1. Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tobacco Vanille
    3. L'ais du Desert Marocain
    4. Noir de Noir
    5. Aventus

    If I were to start afresh and look to assemble a new wardrobe based on fragrances i've yet to own a full bottle:
    1. Tonka Imperiale
    2. Sycomore
    3. Incense Oud
    4. Portrait of a Lady
    5. Xerjoff Uden or PureDistance M purely for the sake of being cavalier and throwing a blind buy in.

    Tough one for me.

    Knize Ten
    Mona di Orio Oud
    Fracas
    La Myrrhe
    Givenchy III

    I think. But ask me again tomorrow and it might have changed.
