    Default One vintage that you can't (or would not want to) live without

    Name the one that you consider a must have. Just One please. I will update the OP to keep a list of most popular ones as a reference for all of us and especially for new comers.

    Samsara for me

    Winners so far:
    1) L'Heure Bleue
    2) Balenciaga PH
    3) Samsara and Shalimar
    4) Kouros and Bel Ami

    Wonderful stuff.

    Since the OP specifies 'one' vintage, I'll say Chanel's Cuir de Russie.

    L'Heure Bleue for me too. I don't wear it so much, but the thought of running out brings me out in a cold sweat and I hoard the stuff.

    Chanel Pour Monsieur is my answer today. I love something that's both light and strong; at least strong in terms of longevity and development.

    I'll never be without Vintage Samsara EDP (80's) or Vintage Shalimar Extrait (60's-70's).

    I need to get my nose on some others, but taking it slow...trying to figure out what may have triggered the massive migraine "infestation" after I purchased a huge amount of vintages last year.
