Took me many years and it was right under my nose.
Thread: Have you already found it?
Finding the perfect fragrance is like finding the perfect woman. Some people are luckier than others, some will find it early on, and some later on in life. Maybe some will never find it but let us be optimistic.
I'm eager to finding that perfect WOW smelling fragrance that I will stick with it for the rest of my life. I have a gut feeling that it's out there and one day I will find it.
Have you already found it?
If you don't believe in monogamy then maybe this thread is not for you lol

Don't think I could ever be content with the "one".
Perfect? Definitely not. But Hugo Boss is the one fragrance I can wear any time I am stumped.
Some people think they find "it", but nobody ever finds "it"...
not perfect but close. This probably sounds Cheesy but I absolutely adore Givenchy Play Intense, it just describes me in every way and..yeah. lol.

My fragrance harem numbers 150 or so. We all have our appetites. hehe.
'The One' only exists in The Matrix.
Simplex Sigillum Veri
I have only found two that are close to holy grail status and one that is close to perfect.
If you are a collector of frags, you will never find. There will always be affairs....Smile
Well, after a lot of searching, I found the "one." But now it's not as interesting as it used to be. I mean, every time I wear it, I'm still wowed, but the degree of passion with it has diminished. I think that's just human nature, and applies to everything, significant others included.
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.
Interesting analogy to women (or significant others), Freschi.

I haven't found that "one" fragrance that I'd be completely fine with claiming my "one and only". I enjoy the variety far too much, so I doubt I ever will....
Ironically was one of the first things I sampled, and 2 years later and many dollars after, it still is the perfect scent for me: Dior Homme Intense
My sales thread
the one for me is burberry touch. it could change if i find something else to knock my socks off.
I used to think Egoiste was the one. Now I think it's Dior Homme, with Midnight in Paris closely behind (and in the future MIP might become the one with DH taking runner up).
I would say Aventus is my go-to
I'm liquidating my collection to help fund my site. Please show your support for the FPindex and buy buy buy - Tuscan Leather, Egoiste, Costume National 21, etc!

When it comes to fragrance, I definitely don't believe in monogamy. With that said, the closest thing to what you call "that perfect WOW smelling fragrance" is, to me, Knize Ten.

I have classics that will be staples in my wardrobe, But I think I like to pick on my mood to much to stick to just one.
