    ONE? Never I have a few I can't see myself living without.

    Just when I think I have found IT I grow weary of it and move on. There are a few ITs that I come back to though and that I assume I will never be without. It still doesn't cure the hunger to keep searching.

    I guess that is when you know you have found IT. My assumption is that it would completely kill any desire to keep looking for the next one.

    i agree with the above. i used to fall for a fragrance and instantly spring for a bottle only to tire of the scent within a few months. these days i buy 10ml decants of scents i love and only if i use the entire thing and still feel the same love for the scent do i spring for fb. needless to say, my fb bottle purchases have come to a standstill while my collection of decants has grown drastically. for me its much better this way. the more fragrances you own, the less ml of each you need. but im not a collector, im just a fragrance lover. being one doesn't necessarily mean you're the other, and vice versa.

    I think I may have found the perfect 200, but that won't stop me from sampling new ones that I think I might enjoy.

    Hard to find one "it" for all ocassions, seasons, moods, settings etc. But several that serve their own function well while good enough to fill another. None perfect but some damned close.

    If I could have only two scents the rest of my life, they'd be Dior Homme Intense and Creed Aventus. That is the holy grail for me
    CURRENT TOP 5

    1. Dior Homme Intense
    2. Creed Aventus
    3. Tom Ford Extreme
    4. Gucci Pour Homme II
    5. Terre d'Hermes

    Doesn't mean it's not still "the one" though. It's still my favorite and I could live with it the rest of my life.
    I'm curious, Jack Hunter and L'Aventurier, which fragrances are these?

    Thanks everyone for your feedback. From what I read, maybe "The One" does not exist for the majority of us. I guess it's true, human nature, we're curious creatures and we always like to try different things. But also some may argue and keep true to their principles of One fragrance policy (maybe woman as well) like Dailey and his fahrenheit or eggy and his Aventus. For example, my dad uses only Kouros since the day it came out in 1981 and still happily married to the one woman he loves since his early 20s.

    Jack, whats the difference between holy grail status and perfect. Does perfect somehow trump holy grail status ?. To me I always thought holy grail = perfect

    NO questions about it...I'm in a lifetime relationship with Molecule 01.


    Fortunately for me, I can layer it with anything and it only gets better!

    My mistress is Kenzo Air. --- I cannot live without either.

    It's no surprise that you love Kenzo Air - it has one of the highest concentrations of Iso E Super on the market! It's a great scent and so hard to find these days

    My Holy Grail is Angeliques sous la pluie. People complain about its longevity, but one spray to each side of the neck lasts 12 hours easily as an under the radar fragrance. I've gotten tons of compliments on it (hours into a wearing), even though it's not very popular on Basenotes.

    The two closest will be the top two now. L'edu d'Hiver is so comforting and Noir de Noir is simply sexual. One is like a wife while the other is a mistress
    Current Top 5:
    1. Frederic Malle L'eau d'Hiver
    2. Tom Ford Noir de Noir
    3. Dior Homme / Dior Homme Intense
    4. Thierry Mugler A*Men Pure Havane / Pure Malt
    5. Creed Aventus / Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille

    My latest "it" is Eau des Baux by L'Occitane.

    Armani Eau pour Homme - probably the only or, at best, one of the "chosen few" scents I'd be "monogamous" about.

    I don't think I can be monogamous to one frag, but there may be a one that I go to regularly.

    I absolutely love this fragrance. Will forever be my favorite, my "it"

    It is subjective but for me a Holy Grail scent is something that has that big "WOW knock you off your feet factor every time you smell it" but may not be versatile. A perfect fragrance is a scent that is well balanced in every department and ticks all the relevant boxes for projection, longevity, unequal smell, complexity etc.

    Out of the hundreds of fragrances I have smelled only the below two have come the closest to what I consider to be a Holy Grail fragrance but they are not perfect.

    Vintage Amouage Homage
    Creed Jardin d Amalfi

    Fahrenheit is the only fragrance I consider to be as close to perfection you can get.

    Vintage Givenchy Gentleman, vintage Worth Pour Homme and Annick Goutal's Sables. These three I'm certain I will always be wearing. Not a 'one' per se, but still. The thing is I don't wear them all the time because I want them to be special. To stick with your analogy I'll say fragrance as a whole is my 'one,' and these three are like three different sorts of... activities.

  25. #55

    Default Re: Have you already found it?

    Yeah, a number of times...

    First "it" was Aventus, then it was Straight To Heaven, and right now it's Oud Wood. I never ever want to settle for one. There's too much to experience out there!

    By Man by Dolce & Gabbana is my holy grail.

    That still doesn't stop me from enjoying other scents but By Man will remain king.

    Default Re: Have you already found it?

    It's hard to choose. It's probably between Tonka Imperiale and Fahrenheit.
    Current top 10 (No order):


    1. Pure Havane
    2. Menthe Fraiche
    3. Tobacco Vanille
    4. L'Air Du Desert Marocain
    5. Green Irish Tweed
    6. Fahrenheit
    7. Musc Ravageur
    8. Tonka Imperial
    9. Gucci Pour Homme II
    10. Dior Homme Intense

    Thought I was done; Nothing but Eau d'Hermes for nearly two years, but after finding the copper cap harder to get my hands on, I allowed myself a mistress or two, and have fallen hard for both Sycomore and L'Air du Desert Marocain.

    Continued to lurk during my monogomy and inevitably cheated on my lovely Eau.

    @ theonlywaste - Prada Amber pour Homme is, indeed, a fine scent, and was, in fact, my SOTD.
    And, by the way:
