    Default There's a fire, you can take only one.

    You have a huge collection but only seconds to get out. A small travel bag, most of your stuff will burn, all of it. You can save only 1 bottle, which will be your daily scent until you can start building up your collection again. Time is running out.


    Which will it be?

    Logistics alone, Gucci Pour Homme. Everything else is more easily replaceable.

    In terms of wearability, probably Aventus.

    If there was a fire, I wouldn't take anything but myself, and my loved ones. Fragrances are a luxury, not a necessity.

    This.

    But, in the spirit of the game, Songe d’un Bois d’Ete. Not a daily wearer, but something to get me through the hard times and make me feel passion for fragrances. Also, expensive enough that I probably wouldn’t repurchase if I lost it (I guess insurance might cover it though...).
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    In the same spirit, probably Crown Perfumery Sumare—not because it's my favorite, but because I think it would be the hardest of my preferred frags to replace.

    Without needing to think,

    Of course I'm grabbing my preciously rare spray-flacon of Creed Spice & Wood.

    My runner up would be the even more rare 1980's Shulton Old Spice Long Lasting Cologne exclusive store tester bottle.

    Arden for Men Sandalwood (1957) is remarkably close. Not identical, but a kissing cousin.

    There is an 'only one' thread about halfway down this page, LOL!
    Oh but this one is different because there's a fire.
    Next week, it'll be the yeti is chasing you and have two bottles. One of them you can keep, but the other one you have to throw it at his head to slow it down so you can get away!

    I'm not complaining. The more the merrier, I'm just amused by the different angles for the same question.

    Anyway, I choose POLO!

    :-) thanks for entering into the spirit, ))) I forgot to mention that there is also a Yeti chasing you through the fire ,,,,

    My dilemma is much easier, because all I have to do is grab my 200ml bottle of Eau Sauvage , and it will see me through my "putting my life back together" phase.

    In fact, I think I'm addicted to it, should probably see a counsellor or something.

    Dude, don't be ridiculous. You're talking like what matters about a fragrance is how it smells.

    Do you have a rare vintage or just the standard fare bottle available at retail?

    Hahaha

    I'd grab my 10K01 Royal Oud and/or my 14L01 Aventus. Probably the "rarest" frags I own.

    That being said, frags would be 3rd on my list of things to grab in fire. First is the cats, second is the guns, third is frags.
