    Fun game!

    I would pick Serge Lutens and get rid of Santal Blanc, Un Bois Vanille, Nuit de Cellophane, Santal Majuscule, Arabie, and Jeux de Peau. Just because I don't like those.

    Nnnnnoooooo! This game is turning into a vicious, massive, aimless mud fight.. And that's hilarious

    My turn:

    NORNE.. Bye bye.. See you when you can get people outside of BN to actually like you.
    GIT.. The overhyped, overrated, ugly synthetic mess that I'd use as a coal starter before putting it on my skin.
    BDP.. Old Spice is gone and there is no need for a replacement.
    All Montales and Lutens: remake them and get the incense out of them. Incense is just cheap and gives such an awful sinister feeling.
    Creed OV, Creed Vetiver, and all other vetiver based scents: vetiver smells like my mom's cooking. I don't like smelling like an entrée.
    A*Men: no need to give a reason on this one. Just axe it, please.

    There! I feel a little exhausted, but in a good way

    Actually, it would appear they are planning on cutting it from their line. I got the following from Gucci yesterday:

    "Unfortunately, the item you have requested is currently unavailable for purchase online. At this time we are not informed if it will be included in future collections."

    The item I was inquiring about was GPHII. Although it's still available in some department stores. I would expect to see this come off the shelves rather soon.

    I know I'm alone on this one, but I really dislike most of the Serge Lutens line. I'd trim it down to a half dozen frags.

    Many Montales would go. But I'd keep Dark Aoud and Full Incense.

    I would attack the house of Creed with a vengeance. First SMW GONE. then OV, Royal Water...ALL GONE. I would hold MI hostage until they spent a little more money to make the rest of their frags last 8hrs and until they hired someone for quality control.
    I have a TON of Full Bottles/Decants/Samples for trade/sale. Montale, Oud Oils, Amouage, Mancera, Penhaligon's

    The fragrance house of Hugo Boss would provide me with "enough room to prune", but I'd most likely and most eagerly prune the fragrance Hugo (1995) at first, even though I like or at least don't dislike most of its flankers and female versions/flankers/variations.

    Clive Christian-Shut down the entire overpriced pretentious line. Bring back Crown Perfumery and apologize to the World, in sackcloth and ashes, for wanton destruction of a classic house, go back to designing kitchens.

    My favorite post of the week.

    But screw it, I'll play: DESTROY ETAT LIBRE D'ORANGE! Can't make even ONE decent fragrance. Confuses crass, juvenile imagery with naughtiness or supposedly pushing the envelope. Releases unwearable fragrances and actually convinces gullible hipsters with money to burn that they're "conceptual works of olfactory art."

    Kill it. Kill it with fire.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    LOL! Surely that game would be far less interesting.

    Now, you can all destroy fragrances houses, if you want, but how about more selective omissions from a house's catalogue?

    Well, I don't care how many Molecule and/or Escentric Iso-propil-metil-poopil juice would come out from the lab of Geza Schoen. But Kinski is the strongest candidate to be my new signature scent. I reckon this IS a rather selective omission - everything but one
