    Well, mine has one celebrity fragrance, although it's a very non-celebrity fragrance sort of celebrity fragrance: Cumming. And I hope to always have a bottle in my wardrobe. I think I wear it at least once a week. I must say I get loads of compliments when I wear it too. I've been told it smells like 'your skin, only better.'

    Wow, what a hard question to answer! A year ago I didn't even own 10 scents & my taste just keeps evolving. For now I would have to say:

    Lyric Woman
    Ubar
    Hypnotic Poison
    Apree L'Ondee
    Bois des Iles
    Cuir de Lancome
    Ambre 114
    Ambre Narguile
    L'Eau d'Hiver
    Eau de Guerlain

    No particular order here. Wonder what our lists will look like next year!!

    This is a very hard question....
    OK, here is mine list of top 10 that I must have to survive (in alphbatical order):
    Chanel No. 19
    Guerlain Nahema
    Guerlain Vol de Nuit
    Kai Kai
    L'Artisan La Chasse aux Papillons
    Les Parfums de Rosine Ecume de Rose
    Ormande Jayne Champaca
    Ormande Jayne Ta'if
    Parfums MDCI Enlevement au Serail
    Serge Lutens Bois de Viollete

    Default Re: If You Could Only Own 10 Fragrances

    Not easy, but the practical pure 'wearability' list would probably look like this (if they were all still available):



    New York (Nicolai), Granville (Dior), L'Heure Fougueuse (Cartier), Sous le Vent (Guerlain), Eau de Cologne Imperiale (Guerlain), Tiffany for Men, Santal Noble (MPG), Derby (Guerlain), Extrait de Santal Mysore EDT (Crabtree & Evelyn), Patou Pour Homme.

    Ubar or Attrape Coeur might well nudge Derby out of the frame

    You have a wonderful way of putting things.

    You're right, Mike, I missed Cumming, and we've had the addition of Deneuve. Let's just say, there are celebrities and there are celebrities.

    Bal a Versailles PdT
    Mitsouko PdT

    My list looks like no one's, but everyone's... i.e., different.

    I like these lists - they sharpen my awareness of where I am, as opposed to where I've been, fragrance-wise. But that doesn't mean the narrowing down process isn't excruciating:

    In no order:

    Chanel - No. 19 (vintage is best, but I'm not broken-hearted over the re-formulation)
    Nasomatto - Narcotic Venus
    Serge Lutens - De Profundis
    Serge Lutens - Rose de Nuit
    Diptyque - Opone (I'm still mourning its demise - I ran out of my bottle, and am now haunting ebay for a replacement )
    Guerlain - Jicky
    Susanne Lange - Vanilla Coconut
    Thierry Mugler - Cologne
    Penhaligon - Amaranthine (It's not green to anyone else, but it's my new green)
    Dolce & Gabanna - Light Blue (I almost feel guilt over this one - it's so light, powdery and airy I feel the need to dismiss it, but I keep coming back to it. It just smells so nice on me)

    I look at everyone else's lists and think "I'm not worthy!!", but here goes:

    Estee Lauder - Knowing
    Stendhal - Noir Divin
    Chanel - Coco
    Chanel - No 19 Poudre
    Bond No 9 - Chinatown
    Bal a Versailles
    Balmain - Ambergris
    Guerlain - Nahema
    Hypnotic Poison
    Fendi

    I might add, I didn't know half of these when I started with Basenotes. Wonder what the list will look like next year.
