    Default 1000$ and 30 seconds to decide!

    lets say you are at big perfume store, and suddenly you win a competition worth a 1000$ in fragrances, but you have only 30 seconds to name the fragrances you want or you will lose the money!!! which fragrances you will name ? ( to make this thread a success you must reply quickly with the first fragrances that came to mind)

    Hard to say for me, since I don't know many fragrances yet. I guess I would pick stuff I figure I'd like:

    Jardin d'Amalfi by Creed ($200?)
    Noir de Noir by TF ($250)
    Pure Malt by TM ($90)
    Tobacco Vanille ($250)
    Jubilation XXV ($290)

    I'd pay the extra $80.

    I can't think that fast. All I could think of was, "Go down my Basenotes wish list and keep buying what's available until I run out of money." Said really fast to get into thirty seconds, of course.

    That would be:
    Parfumerie Generale Bois Blond
    Heeley Cadinal
    Serge Lutens Chene
    L'Artisan Parfumeur Dzing!
    L'Artisan Parfumeur Dzongkha
    Serge Lutens Fille en Aiguilles
    Robert Piguet Fracas
    Jo Malone French Lime Blossom

    Not in priority order - if I had more time to think, there'd be more Lutens and Parfumerie Generales and I'd let the l'Artisans, Jo Malones, and Fracas wait a while longer.

    Lalfeogrigio or Lalfeorosa or Diaghilev. If the shop carries vintage stuff I'd go for Djedi or Guerlain's Cuir De Russie or Vega. I can spend $1000 in a nanosecond and I would probably still have to add the balance.

    Slumberhouse Pear+Olive (as if they'd have it... whatever)
    A couple extra bottles of Burberry London (I wear the crap out of it)

    And then I'd just start grabbing random bottles I'd never smelled. Might as well take the opportunity to discover new things!

    Cool scenario! For me, I think it would be:
    Creed Aventus
    Creed GIT
    Chanel Sycomore
    Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille

    I've never owned or even sampled any of these, but feel fairly confident I would like 'em. So that's how I would blow my $1000.. on the pricey ones I will probably never own otherwise

    Largest Aventus falcon there is (just because of the hype)
