    Default 4 colognes to live with for the rest of your life. Niche and Designer.

    If you guys had only 4 (4 seasons) colognes to live with for the rest of your life, what would you choose and why? Here is a list of my niche and designer choices.

    Niche:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed - Its versitile and timeless. Smells great and people truly enjoy the smell. The drydown is amazing to me.
    2. Amouage Reflection - This would be my smell during the cooler days. Makes me feel smelling rich and delicious. sweet deliciousness.
    3. Creed Aventus - Great amazing fresh complex transitioning cologne. The opening top notes is one of my most favorite. I actually didn't like it to much when i first sampled it, but I love it now.
    4. Bond 9 Bleeker Street - My go to cologne. I go to this whenever I can't decide. Its safe and awesome.

    Designer:

    1: Chanel Allure Homme Sport - All the time, any time!
    2. Joop Nightflight - Fresh, citrusly, and great! haha
    3. Bleu De Chanel - Girls love it
    4. YSL La Nuit - Makes me feel like a lady killer.
    5. Thierry Mugler Pure Malt - Gourmand deliciousness

    I'm sorry in advanced. I had alot to drink today, i'm drunk..... hahahaha

    The more I see your posts and sig, the more I realize how much the Amouage grew on you huh ? They ARE amazing. Surprisingly i love them all but changed the order a lot among them. Jub XXV was my fav at first and is now after epic, reflection, silver, memoir and lyric (in this order) in my book. Love its drydown but struggle a bit with the fruity openinig at the moment.

    Dullah, I am quite familiar with Eau d'OV by Hermes, but not at all with Concentre D'Orange Verte.

    The former captivated me initially... then it turned into pleasant detergent and little else.

    Should I still investigate Concentre D'Orange Verte? Thanks.

    Yup, there's just something about the Amouage line (well, most of it) that I love. They aren't the most natural scents and they can be loud and brash, but there's just something truly artistic in the development and evolution of most of their scents. It's hard to articulate exactly what it is about them that I love so much.

    Agreed. I think the trick, besides the amazing development they have, might be the wonderful drydown they all have. Complex, beautiful, but very conforting and peaceful if that does make sense ^^ .

    Ironically, wearing - even in minute quantities, as it is my wont - various Amouage EdPs gave me headaches, allergies, and frosty stares from others, which were unmistakable in conveying their message: "Addict, you stink!".

    Oy.

    I'm not out to convert anyone, but on the flipside, I have a hard time not going on and on about what I love. Hope that's allowed, too!

    Don't need separate categories. These four would do for me for life, and someday the wardrobe may be only these:

    Comme des Garcons 2 Man (niche)
    Montale Red Vetyver (niche)

    If I were adding a few more to the mix, say 3 more designers and 1 more niche, I would choose:

    Thanks. I think you and I have similar tastes generally, so I always take your recommendations to heart. As for a small wardrobe, yeah, I just feel more comfortable that way. I have gone as high as 30+ bottles, but I'm just not happy with that much clutter nor do I wear them all. Minimalism makes me happy.

    Absolutely. I'd be disappointed by the alternative, perhaps. (-:

    Limiting usage to 4 niche and 4 designer frags is something impossible for me to do. One? Yes and that would be Old Spice. After that the floodgates open.
    I am so weak. No....I am too enthused. LoL.

    Niche:
    New Haarlem - Bond No. 9 (relaxing, delicious and laid back)
    Rose 31 - Le Labo (perfectly balanced spices with cedar and rose. Unique and masculine)
    Virgin Island Water - Creed (Fun, unique and relaxing that reminds me of a vacation)
    Menthe Fraiche - Heeley (Fresh, invigorating and just love the smell)

    Designer:
    La Nuit De L'Homme - YSL (favorite "going out" fragrance, sexy and alluring)
    Tobacco Vanille - Tom Ford (deep, comforting and very rich)
    Rochas Man - Rochas (worn this for years, brings back awesome memories and biggest compliment getter, works VERY well on my skin)
    Grey Vetiver - Tom Ford (formal, powerful and something about the grapefruit and overall composition that is very addicting)
    Imagine there were no hypothetical situations.

    what a wonderful thread for me to have easy access to the favorites of fellow basenoters. I am still trying to find my way in fragrances. When I was young over 20 years ago my father had a bunch colognes from our home country of india that all had this fierce, intense smell that often was spice mixed with woods and some type of musk or incense. I've been trying to find something similar but thus far have been unlucky as most frags I've tried were layered with alot of sweetness. One of the tom ford line opened up in that way but lost its energy and died down rather quickly. Since I'm still new to the world of great scents I'm going to list the past few colgnes that I've purchased and been wearing alot.

    Gucci Pour Homme II - nice smell but lacking projection and longevity.
    Burberry London - nice smell but again, lacking projection and longevity.
    Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme - this one i feel has it all, not as spicy or as masculine as I would have liked but a very good smell and it projects and lasts a ridiculously long time!
