    Default Youre going away for 6 months and have room for only ONE fragrancewhat 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?

    Where am I going?

    Default Re: Youre going away for 6 months and have room for only ONE fragrancewhat fragrance do you take?

    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.

    Good question and some interesting responses. Versatility is key if committing to one fragrance for 6 months. I would go with Aventus. Bleu de Chanel would be a close second.

    Default Re: Youre going away for 6 months and have room for only ONE fragrancewhat fragrance do you take?

    If elegance was the main issue/target/task/request etc., it would most likely be Armani Eau pour Homme

    If versatility was the top priority: Rive Gauche pour Homme
    If it mainly involved a casual, informal, outgoing atmosphere favoring gourmands: Burberry London, Gucci Envy, Very Irresistible by Givenchy
    If it mainly involved a casual, informal, outgoing atmosphere, however favoring far more scents on the light side: Mugler Cologne or Voyage d'Hermes EDT
    And these are just immediate, near spontaneously imagined examples about how I'd handle the situation, even more variables could influence my possible decision.

    This being said, I guess it would depend a lot on my place of destination, the type of travel, the economic, cultural etc. context of my destination etc., so the choice of a fragrance would become less predictable and highly depending on the context.
