    These three fragrances have earned permanent places in my collection for as long as they are made (and then some): Straight to Heaven, Encre Noire, and Back to Black.

    If I run out of any of those three, I will restock (or in the case of the Kilians, refill). But I can live without everything else that is currently in my collection. In some cases, some scents have gone on hiatus after I first bought them (M7, Mugler Cologne, and Terre d'Hermes) only to later show up again. In other cases (A*Men being the most notable), I've had the scent for a long time but can live without it for a long period of time.
    Top 5 for Winter:
    1) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
    2) Back to Black - By Kilian
    3) M7 (vintage or Oud Absolu) - YSL
    4) Aventus - Creed
    5) John Varvatos Vintage

    My mission statement: "I am not afraid to keep on living - I am not afraid to walk this world alone."

    Recently, GPH2. I just got it today and had never tried it, but after spraying it on my skin, I instantly got that "Where have you been all my life?" feeling.

    But generally, if I cared enough to buy a full bottle, then obviously I can't be without it.

    When you step back from stressing the parts,
    when the mind becomes still, the rose comes to you,
    unfolds in you in all her glory.
    The perfume invades you completely.
    The rose is you. You are one.

    Whatever it is, I always come back to the below scents. Not that they are unique or spectacular, but they are so versatile that I pick them up to spray for the day without even thinking about it.

    To be honest, I suspect I could quite easily live without any fragrances, but seeing as I can have whatever I want, I can't see myself being without Tam Dao or 2 Man.

    Perhaps Hinoki, too.

    I think Oud Wood is moving into that category, but the price is causing a psychological stumbling block.

    Yes I would feel very confident you would. Touch base with Hednic for his opinion. Also, I would check with MDM because they are down to 30 bottles left per a recent reviewer on here this past week.

    In hindsight Hednic with his extensive collection always has spoken highly of this fragrance for quite some time.

    I've given this subject thought and I concluded that there are three:

    Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui - I've only smelled and owned the vintage, and not only is it a beautifully complex scent but it is worn by my father and his father. Such powerful memories of such important people make it impossible for me to part with this.

    Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree - The first bottle of fragrance that I chose on my own that made me understand "sophistication" in a fragrance. That time was during my senior year of high school and then into college - I was constantly reminded of the difference between what was being worn around me in a small town in West Texas versus my Pour Monsieur.

    Last would be Vol de Nuit - this is a relatively new love for me and I cannot see myself being without its beauty for the rest of my life. It's as simple as that.

    Except for a lifetime love of Eau Sauvage, my tastes change constantly so there are prolly none really I couldn't LIVE without, if there were NO scents already available wherever I was I'd be crushing and extracting stuff from flowers or the like
