    Default if you went with 2 houses for life, what 2 would you pick ?

    I have a brief conversation last night, with anohter BNer, and I told him I should have just gone with Amouage and stuck to my guns. He said Amouage would be far too rich and would like something lighter. He chose Micallef and I went with Amouage and YSL or Dior, as a second.

    What would you go with, if you could only buy from 2 houses, from now on ?
    Currently wearing: Antaeus by Chanel

    Probably Guerlain and Creed. It is tough to choose only two, with so many good ones out there, including Amouage. I just find that I wear more Guerlain and Creed than any other house.

    Tough decision, but I think I would go with Histoires de Parfums and Editions de Parfums.

    Guerlain and Hermes. Runner up: Dior. (Tough choice, as I think I have exactly three top houses now-- those three.)
    I send thee this sweet perfume a fragrance to the fragrant, as one would offer wine to the god of wine.

    Definitely Maison Francis Kurkdjian, number 2 is difficult but maybe Comme des Garcons...

    I can't think of a house that has a consistent range of fragrances that I like enough! L'Artisan de Parfumeur would qualify but their longevity on me is middling. Lutens - nice but the bases all smell the same to me. Amouage - good but too rich and again, similar.

    Hmm...I'd say Histoire de Parfum and...I can't think of another one just yet.
