    "We all know there is plenty of Chanel out there"

    Not Chanel No. 5 Voile - although Chanel No. 5 Eau Premiere smells very similar and lasts longer.

    This actually happened to me a couple of years ago. The building next door burned down and I had to quickly evacuate. Having given this no thought ahead of time, I grabbed Clive Christian X For Men. Somehow I know it was by "only bottle available" go-to. And it was the perfect choice.
    Has everyone checked out my Top 100 Blog??

    In no particular order and with few/no changes to the list (even if I would have posted this earlier, few to no changes in my preferences and choices would have occurred), namely:

    Armani Eau pour Homme
    Guerlain Heritage
    Knize Ten
    Aramis Havana and also Tuscany from the same house
    Lapidus pour Homme
    YSL Rive Gauche PH (especially considering that I was lucky to get almost a vintage, at any rate a by now quite collectible "tin can" release)
    YR Cypres et Pamplemousse
    Eau des Baux
    Versace l'Homme

    LOL! I was trained by FEMA and BDLS when I was on the Go Team with Hopkins, and we actually had some discussions on 'go bags". I was wearing Hanae Mori pretty much as a signature scent at the time, and made a penned note in one of my trainings to place it in my go-bag from then-on.

    Scent can have a very powerful psychological impact. Patients I have treated who suffer from PTSD have some powerful associations with scent, some positive, some negative. I have learned for me, having a familiar scent around me when treating a traumatic situation is critical for MY well-being and serves as a focal-point.

    As to what I would grab now?
    1. Hanae Mori - she's been there, done that - familiarity, and what I wore when I met my husband for the first time.
    2. Chanel Misia - reminds me clearly as if I were there of my grandmother's vanity. Warm happy peaceful.
    3. Chanel no 5 - Beautiful and classic. Stability.
    5. Chanel Coco - sensual and mysterious. Sexual Connection is important in marriage, especially in light of disaster.
    6. Vent Vert - people do the unexpected and kind and we should pass it on. Best of humanity.
    7. Bottega Veneta - strong and sure - pick ourselves up by our proverbial bootstraps!
    8. Ostara - I'm simply addicted. Addiction.
    9. Oud Ispahan - Roses and Oud - so beautiful! There is beauty after the pain
    10. A la Nuit - Jasmine is great for anxiety and is also sensual and just simply lovely.

    Perhaps I got a bit too into it, but there you have it! And biy was that hard choosing only 10!!! About had to take some Ativan! LOL!

    In no particular order.

    1 - Vintage Shalimar
    2 - Jo Malone Vintage Gardenia
    3 - Jo Malone French Lime Blossom
    4 - Jo Malone Silk Blossom
    5 - Houbigant Essence Rare
    6 - Gucci Envy
    7 - Vintage Opium
    8 - Chanel Coco
    9 = Illuminum Rose Oud
    10 - Margaretha Ley Escada

    And if I can sneak it in Ralph Lauren Lauren and MFK Aqua Universalis Forte. Although Coco and MFK I could replace but there is no more Lauren. The MFK is very expensived so I might keep that and give up the French Lime Blossom since it too can be replaced.

    Who started this? I am driving myself crazy here. I would probably be dead by the time I made up my mind.

    This is different to a top 10 list, as I'd take the fragrances that are difficult to replace:

    Amouage Taifi Rose, Tribute, Homage, Badr al Badr, Al Shomoukh, Ayoon al Maha
    Amouage Dia Man, Jubilation XXV, Gold Man (vintage)
    Chanel Bois des Iles parfum (1930s)
