    Creed and Dior.

    I think between these two, I will have all my bases covered. But honestly though, if I could only buy from those houses, I would only end up with 5 scents because they are not cheap.

    I may just buy small decants of them..

    Aventus
    M.I.
    Fahrenheit 32
    DHI
    DHS

    Though more realistically, burberry would be in there. Maybe dolce gabbana.

    This is solely based on what I've been exposed to, so I'd say Creed (many great fragrances, and I couldn't live without MI and Aventus) and really the second one is harder since I love so many. Tom Ford I guess (I love TV and NP, also enjoy NdN).

    Also worth mentioning MDCI, Slumberhouse, and TM.

    If you're saying I can only buy from two house the rest of my life then the answer is easy. I just choose the two houses that make the two fragrances I love best. Miller Harris makes Vetiver Bourbon, so that's one, and By Kilian makes Pure Oud so that's two. I could get by just wearing those two for the rest of my life though there's always the chance I'd regret it later. The other fragrances the houses make are irrelevant to me, though they would be available as a bonus. Fortunately we only live in the hypothetical universe here in cyberspace so we don't have to make these kinds of sacrifices.

    By the way, I feel like I'm not really answering the OPs question as he intended it. I'm sure it's more of a "What are your favourite houses?" type of thing. None the less that is my only solution to that hypothetical.

    Serge Lutens and Christian Dior (later due to three fragrances only which are vintage versions of Eau Sauvage, Eau Sauvage Extreme, and Dior Homme)..if Dior had not produced these three gems, maybe Malle or Amouage in place of Dior

    That is difficult...Houses like Creed have only 2 frags that I would own, but they top my list. Bn9 has 2 frags I own, and have tried about 20 others and dislike. My collection isn't like some...20 bottles, all Creed, with a little light above, and a Creed label painted on the wall with candles around... Mine has no more than 2 bottles from any one house.

    Vintage Guerlain and Caron I think. But if I can't secure a lifetime supply of old stock I might just drop the notion and go for something entirely contemporary like Slumberhouse.

    Assuming I would have access to their whole back catalog, I'd go with Guerlain and Comme Des Garcons. No doubts.
