    Default Favorite from your collection?

    Out of the fragrances that you already own, which is your favorite?
    If you had to choose just one to keep for life, which would you choose and why?

    haute luxe - roja parfums, such a beautiful, quality smelling scent that has everything i desire in a scent. good smell,projection,sillage,longevity and makes me feel in such a way when wearing it that no other perfume in my collection does.
    Anas b. Malik reported that Allah's Apostle (ﷺ) used to come to our house and there was perspiration upon his body. My mother brought a bottle and began to pour the sweat in that. When Allah's Apostle (ﷺ) got up he said:

    Umm Sulaim, what is this that you are doing? Thereupon she said: That is your sweat which we mix in our perfume and it becomes the most fragrant perfume.

    Probably Guerlain Héritage EDT.

    My other two "top three" contenders aren't as versatile as that one.

    Probably Dolce & Gabbana The One, I don’t get any compliments when wearing it, the projection and longevity are terrible but I love the character of the scent.
    My Most Complimented:

    1). Aventus - Creed
    2). Sauvage - Dior
    3). Allure Homme Sport - Chanel
    4). L'Homme - Prada
    5). Acqua Di Gio Profumo - Giorgio Armani

    Vintage Armani Pour Homme. It was the fragrance I associated with my first love, unlocking fond if bittersweet memories of yesteryears. That it’s a classy and versatile scent is just icing on the cake.

    Probably vintage Antaeus, but over time, I think there’s something in my collection I’ll grow to like even more, such as Jules or vintage Givenchy Gentleman. For now, Antaeus: it smells classic, impressive, animalic, and woody. It’s equally good in the opening and the base.

    The opening of Antaeus Sport is even better. Givenchy Gentleman has the best base.

    My collection isn't that big, but it's probably GIT.

    It's just very versatile. Strong but not overpowering. Such a unique scent to me.

    Dior Homme Parfum. I would wear it a lot more often if it wasn't apparently discontinued in the UK.

    Terre d'Hermes. My first love, and a good year-round option, appropriate for any occasion, and most importantly - it smells amazing, especially on me

    Most likely, Armani Eau pour Homme-due to being both a long term and current personal favorite, as much as covering most or even all (personal) requirements regarding versatility, freshness, timelessness, elegance, several favorite notes credibly rendered.

    To tell you the truth, I can´t decide between Antaeus or Eau Sauvage Parfum. And I´ve been thinking a lot.

    Probably Crabtree Evelyn Extract of Mysore Sandalwood, the first fragrance I ever bought and, it turned out, an enduring Mysore reference. Other top contenders are vintage Domenico Caraceni 1913 because it permits me to pretend I am a viscount or Romeo Gigli (1991) because it invariably brightens my mood.

    Darvant has nice things to say about this one in his Gengis Khan review. I've had a decant from Epapsiou that grew on me quickly over a couple wearings.

    I'd have to say my bottle of 'Isle Ryder' by D+S & Durga. Out of production and nothing else like it.

    Either that, or my vintage Borneo.

    Thanks for pointing this out. I personally do not place Romeo Gigli and Gengis Khan in the same mental pigeonhole, not even close.

    I, too, find them poles apart but then my nose is not as refined.
    What I did notice is that Pandora Pour Homme/Meditarrenum base is very similar to Romeo Gigli

    I wouldn't wear this in mid-summer, or maybe I would. This is my current favorite fragrance in my collection.

    I thought Romeo Gigli was as a bit like Egoiste. Super delicious in either case.
