    My first instinct is Frederic Malle, but part is me is saying Dior now. Definitely something with a diverse line.

    Default Just one fragrance house?

    Hi Guys,

    Could you get by with fragrances from only one fragrance house? If yes, which would it be.

    I have thought about it, but haven't found a house that has the fragrances to satisfy me all year round.

    I wouldn't want to do that, but if I had to, I'd probably choose Guerlain.

    Malle from the more recent houses.

    Very close between Guerlain and Chanel - but Chanel would get it mainly because I love Chanel No.5 so much. Couldn't live without it.

    Creed may not be the most innovative, but their products sure are wearable.

    I have a sample of Xerjoff Mamluk, I wasn't too impressed. I really like oud fragrances though. Which do you think is the best from Xerjoff?

    Is there some kind of learning curve with Channel no. 5? I just can't get myself to like it. Please help.

    To choose only one would be traumatic, however, in the spirit of the posted question, I would choose Guerlain to be my maison de fragrance.

    Since my last response on this thread I've discovered Jicky EdP, which is my number one right now by some margin.

    Having said that, I've also discovered Eau Sauvage Extreme and Eau Sauvage Parfum - the former is very good, and the latter is fantastic. So I'd hate to have lose Dior.

    But Guerlain has it, if I have to choose one.

    I have come to realize that I cannot pick just one without mentioning others that I adore.

    Whose idea was this anyway? LOL. I believe variety is the spice of life, especially in olfactory pleasure.

    I have to mention, or else I wouldn't be honest - Balenciaga. Their male fragrances literally stop me in my tracks when I smell them - I am mesmerized. A house that is so significant and dear to me.

    A more fair thread that was on BN a while back - "Name your Top 5 houses". At least then, we don't feel like Tom Hanks stuck on an island talking to a ball named, "Wilson", losing our sanity. That is the relative effect of having to choose one house for us with a deep passion...

    Cheers.
