    Looking at my collection I will have to go with Narciso Rodriguez for Him. It's just so versatile and I can even see myself wearing it in the warmer weather if applied properly. I have a backup 50 ml bottle but if I'll be wearing it for the next five years I'll have to invest in another five 100 ml bottles because I love to spray liberally!

    So, something that performs for me equally well in hot and warm weather. A fragrance that somehow feels light and easy, yet has surprising depth. Since I am using it every day, it can't be too coying, should be a moderate projector, and have good longevity.

    I think based on this I am going with Tom Ford NP.

    Since my fiance is a fan of almost all of my perfumes, i'd let her pick it. I don't own anything i don't love, so pretty much anything she picked would be ok with me.

    My pick would be Francis Kurkdjians Oud.

    Thats tough. 5 years is a long time. i would say Dunhill edition. It's actually my SOTD, and I was just thinking, I really could make this stuff my signature scent. I do know I need to wear it more often. I say that every time I wear it.

    Well, if someone was going to give me like maybe a couple of million dollars for doing it for 5 years, I COULD I guess, go with Eau Sauvage IF I lived in a generally warm climate that is - if I had to deal with actual SEASONS then I don't think I could do it.

    On second thought, probably GIT. Italian Cypress is excellent, but I can't imagine wearing it in sweltering summer heat. I think GIT is a little more of a year around scent. Aventus would not be bad, either.
