    I find it difficult to narrow it down to one house, but here is what I currently have among my top 20 all time most worn:

    Creed: Aventus, GIT and MI (Royal Oud will eventually displace either GIT or MI).

    TF: Grey Vetiver, Neroli Portofino and Ombré Leather.

    YSL: L’Homme, La Nuit and M7OA.

    Easily Dior.

    Fahrenheit EDT
    Sauvage EDP
    Homme EDT
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    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.

    This is a very interesting excercise.
    Whatever house I choose, the perfect three has to contain a great zingy and juicy citrus, an enveloping and sensual preferrably vanilla based scent and something either aromatic, woody, musky or just beautiful and elegant something in between.

    GUERLAIN:
    Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune
    Aqua Allegoria Ginger Piccante
    Mon Guerlain

    DIOR:
    Poison Girl Unexpected
    Fahrenheit Cologne
    Addict

    MOLINARD:
    Les Amoureux de Peynet
    Habanita L'Esprit
    Vanille Fruitee

    L'OCCITANE:
    Pamplemousse Rhubarbe
    Terre de Lumiere
    Ambre

    HERMES:
    Pamplemousse Rose
    Eau des Merveilles
    Twilly Poivree

    I would be probably happiest with Guerlain - I just love Aqua Allegoria line too much and they know what to do with vanilla.

    If Hanae Mori had a third masculine to go along with H.M. and HiM, I could see myself being happy with that as well.

    I want to try all Amouages I think, I don't have Overture currently and I have about 12 samples to go through, but I'm sure I'll get to it someday

    This is a tough one. I currently really dig Cariter, about 3 or 4 really good ones from them, but they kind of have a more serious vibe to them. John Varvatos is the most interesting but they're missing that one, dumb grab crowd pleaser. Tom Ford has some good ones but they're way too niche to wear all year round.


    Versace
    Pour Homme for every day use. Work, casual, date, whatever.
    Dylan Blue for every type of evening except summer.
    and either Versace L'Homme for a warmer retro scent for cold weather, or Versace Blue Jeans for a soda syrupy 90s scent for cold weather.

    Common themes for the house are dry woods and incense with open use of synthetics. I’d say CDG is niche in style if not by strict definition (as it is a fashion designer house). Often a somewhat pared back style, aiming to balance wearability with experimentation.

    Thanks for the input. Sounds good, although incense is hit or miss for me so far with my trying out Amouages
