    I wouldn't, because many of them would be redundant and a waste of money, since I generally only like several from one house enough to buy them.

    Agree with Duke, but great idea for a thread/poll Tony.
    I would pick up just the best ones that I like from each house. That said I have "more than one" frag from Amouage and Creed than any other, but too many from other houses (incl ultra cheapies) to push them to one side and ignore.

    Maybe if I had all that money I would buy out YSL and force them to start remaking Rive Gauche in the original formula again!

    I've got the entire Tom Ford Prive line already (minus the Jardins).
    So i chose Bond 9! They get a lot of hate around here, but i like them a lot!

    I also agree with Duke.
    ...that being said...
    I'd want the Amouage line.
    I'd be wiser to choose the Tom Ford line.
    Oh, or maybe Creed...?

    Amouage but guerlain would be tempting for educational purposes. Cdg would realistically have the most wearable scents for me as I find so many of them fbw

    Not much to think about. Guerlain is the greatest perfume house in history by about a million miles. Ridiculous how many great fragrances they've made since Jicky in 1889. Not to mention all the unique and high quality bottles they've been housed in ! As Maurice Roucel said, it's the one house every great perfumer still wants to work for.

    I doubt I could bring myself to buy the entire line of any fragrance designer firm. There is just so much more I'd like spending cash on.

    That being said, I'd go for neat flacons / bottles if I had to. My choice and one not listed is Perfumes MDCI. Gorgeous flacons and great juice. Expensive but well worth it.

    Being rich would be irrelevant. Ive yet to try a line and like everything ive sampled, so for me it would be a waste of money.

    Id probally have to go for Creed, and id be happy to settle for just Aventus, GIT, OS, OV, VIW and PWC. I wouldnt want anymore than that from what ive tried yet...

    Edit: Perfect example, ive just recieved a sample of Spice & Wood! I totally respect different tastes but this is horrible. I hate the clove, it is far to prominent and makes it smell medicinal to me. Maybe i dont have any class but this just smells wrong. Why the hell is this £415? I get Pure White Cologne, i understand it, but that is plain nasty...

    As I'm not a collector, more a "wearer", I only buy what I like so there would be little point in buying a whole line if I'm not going to wear all of them.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I have to say I am right with you on this both in terms of the fragrance you mention and along with your overall point about there not being a fragrance house that has a complete range that's worth owning.

    I have no clue. I'll have to become rich first, and then I can make a decision.

    Well, as of now (not rich), I'll go with;
    Tom Ford
    Bond no 9
    Amouage
    Boadicea The victorious

    I would buy every big bottle of The perfume house of ROJA DOVE and other rare Arabian frags available at UAE or Dubai....but this after taking care of more prompting issues , as per helping other people in need and starting a foundation that helps the poor obtain a trade and help others in more important issues of the soul and Spirit by including the Gospel to those I'm helping with The LORDS blessing....then I would do the afore mentioned.....peace and Godbless

    If I won the lottery I'd buy my own perfumier!! On a serious note as I have not tried enough of any of these houses, I really cannot give an honest answer but based off of the quality of all of the fragrances I have sampled from each house I would have to with Amouage although Xerjoff would be a very close second.
    Current Favorites:
    Roja Parfums Sweetie Aoud

    Easiest question ever posed on Basenotes. I'd buy the Creed line in a second.

    None...

    I've never liked "every" parfum created by a house. Slumberhouse is the closest, but I don't have a few from the time the house started.

    Even if I hit a lotto, I'd still pick and choose what I like from a house. I'd go for every vintage Guerlain worth buying, all Amouage attars, select few from the other houses that I want to buy. I'll still stay away from xerjoff, bond not 007 and roja dove's (filthy expensive for a parfum) - maybe I'll buy his patents and make his creations sell at a human price...

    I'll probably finance a few upcoming perfumers too, with no obligation to my financing...
