    because of the limit to 10, versatility is a factor that comes more into play, and weaknesses like weak longevity are less forgivable).

    No chance. I couldn't even cut it down to ten per season!

    I could live with just first 4 but if I could pick 10 just for pure variety it would be probably:

    Dior Homme Intense - comfort scent
    L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme - versatile, sophisticated, masculine
    Timbuktu - fresh, sophisticated
    Gucci PH II - signature scent
    Coromandel - classy scent
    Sycomore - green vetiver scent
    White Aoud - exotic, comfort scent
    Al Oudh - exotic, dirty scent
    L Air Du Desert Marocain - masculine, power scent
    Dior Homme - formal scent
    TOP 3 hot weather:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Lalique Encre Noire
    3. Creed Millesime Imperial


    TOP 3 cold weather:

    1. Dior Homme
    2. Eau Des Baux
    3. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme

    Creed Windsor - for the rose note if nothing else.
    YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme - the ultimate barbershop fragrance.
    Borsari Aqua Classica - a nice Italian colonia, and I enjoy this more than Acqua di Parma.
    L'Occitane Eau des Baux - my favorite winter scent.
    Lubin Itasca - perfect for fall, I feel myself walking through the woods.
    Hermes Terre d'Hermes - great work scent.
    Creed Aventus - nothing else quite like this.
    L'Occitane Eau des 4 Voleurs - magical, magical stuff. This scent makes me happy.
    Tom Ford Tuscan Leather - need a leather here, and hard to choose between this and Knize Ten.

    The last one would be a sandalwood. I'm currently waiting for Santal Noble and AOS Sandalwood to make a final decision on which I would take, but for now let's just put down Diptyque Tam Dao.

    Most likely, 2 bottles of (almost any) citrus scents, 2 bottles of (preferably non-reformulated or vintage) powerhouse scents, 2 gourmands, 2 scents even more formal than any of the aforementioned categories, 1 "green"/grassy scent and also some very rare, unusual, quirky, creative, overly expensive, luxurious etc. niche, irrespective if the niche scents may already belong to the other existing categories as well or not.
