    Great question indeed. If I could only buy five more vintage
    perfumes in my life, I'll have to go with these babies - all of
    which are sadly missing in my collection as of now.

    Bois Noir
    Tabac Blond
    Diorling
    Jicky
    Chanel N°46

    The last four in parfum concentration.
