    From the list:

    Azzaro pour Homme
    Horizon - Guy Laroche
    Salvador Dali pour Homme

    Two get a nod, but are not "absolute must haves" by any means:

    Midnight in Paris

    Not too many from that list, but I've only tried maybe a third of them. And some of those I'd consider essential I'd only consider so in their vintage form Azzaro PH, Zino, etc.

    Azzaro PH
    Bulgari Black
    Caron pour un Homme
    Yatagan
    Zino Davidoff

    A bunch of others I'd like to try, some that I own already but either don't really love or could easily part with. So whittled it down to the essentials, not simply stuff I sort of like. I'd just as soon get out of that habit of keeping around stuff I only sort of like, but wear infrequently.

    In no particular order, I think these 5 would give one a good spread of options, there are others in the list that I love but these are quite wearable. You should add Cacharel pour L'homme to the list, it's a great one

    1 - Caron pour un Homme
    2 - Havana
    3 - Hommage a L'Homme Lalique
    4 - Jaïpur Homme
    5 - Rive Gauche pour Homme

    These are all truly great and so different to each other. Caron's L'Anarchiste seems to not get much love.

    On point: Azzaro pH, Yatagan, Havana, Versace L'Homme, Elsha 1776 Russian Leather (not on list - should be!)

    If time travel were possible, I'd go back to the time before I began accumulating bottles and I'd have this conversation with myself concerning that list:
    - If nothing I suggest changes your behavior, you will acquire over 70 of these.
    - You will later give away, throw away, sell or try to sell over 40 of those.
    - You will acquire more expensive fragrances. Many of them. This cannot be helped!
    - You'll see significant overlap between some of these more expensive acquisitions and some 'cheapies' on this list, making those listed lesser 'must haves'.
    - Based on your tastes and how you've valued all your acquisitions relative to one another... and remembering, generally, that older/vintage works better for you...go get the following groupings, in order:

    1. Most Appreciated / Highest Regard - Azzaro pH, Yatagan
    2. Appreciated / Highly Regarded - Havana, Versace L'Homme, Elsha 1776 Russian Leather (not on list - should be!)
    3. Then get these - Aramis, Visit, Bijan for Men, Bogart PH, Bulgari Black, Caron Third Man, Jaïpur Homme, Maxim's pH, Montana Parfum d'Homme (redbox) <not necessary, if you get Havana>, Tabac Original, Vermeil pH <not necessary if you have Davidoff '84>
    4. You will find enjoyment from the following and consider them 'keepers', but given other fragrances you will have acquired, most all these are certainly not 'must haves' for you and arguably are not even necessary: 4711, Agua Brava, Catalyst <not necessary if you have Dunhill Edition>, L'Elbolaro Meharees <not necessary if you have Musc Ravageur>, Nicole Miller for Men <not necessary if you have LeDandy>, Old Spice, One Man Show Bogart, Perfumer's Workshop Tea Rose, Pinaud Clubman Special Reserve, Pino Silvestre, PS by Paul Sebastian, Quorum, Rive Gauche pH, Ungaro III

    Sometimes, we overthink these things!
    Wanna Shop? --> Buzier's Sales

    MY TOP SHELF: Azzaro pH, Bel Ami, Blackbird, Blend 30, Cuba, Davidoff '84, Derby, Edition, Equipage, Jules, Knize Ten, Kouros, Leather Oud, Puredistance M, Santal Noble, Tribute Attar, Yatagan
