    Default You’re going away for 6 months and have room for only ONE fragrance…what fragrance do you take?

    You’re about to go on a 6 month trip and are limited to carrying ONLY ONE fragrance from your entire collection. What fragrance would you choose if you were limited to just one?

    I'd take the top off an empty 8.4 ounce Creed bottle and fill it with 5ml decants :P

    Decants aside though. Depends where I'm going. If I was headed somewhere beachy and tropical I'd take Montale's Sandflowers if it were the dry season and Embruns d'Assouria for the wet. If it were beachy but not tropical I'd consider CSP's Aqua Motu or Annick Goutal's Sables with Sables for a cooler clime and Aqua Motu for a hotter one.

    If I was going to a big city like New York or London I'd take something flexible but seriously high-end like Opulent Shaik no.77

    If I was going Skiing I'd take a big gourmand like New Harlem or Chocolate Greedy.

    If I was going on holiday purely to chill and recharge I'd take a comfort fragrance, something I can wear when I haven't shaved in a week without feeling unbalanced. Probably vintage Givenchy Gentleman.

    Lastly if it was more of a wilderness-type holiday, adventure stuff or camping, fishing, anything like that I'd take something like Worth Pour Homme, or some other really old-fashioned 'fresh' powerhouse fougere.

    I would prob take MI by Creed since I find it to be the least offensive and works in pretty much any scenario.

    just can't live on one fragrance for the whole 6 months, can't survive that long with just one frag

    i'll take Chanel Sycomore with me and will be purchasing a few more bottles once landed.

    And if I told you, "you're gonna be going everywhere...choose one" what would you take?

    Tough call, but as if right now I'd probably go with Gucci Pour Homme II because of it's versatility.

    Probably Aventus. If not, GIT since I'd want something super versatile and non-offensive.
