10 from my collection, going for variety if this is all I could have:

Frederic Malle Eau de Magnolia (fresh)
Frederic Malle French Lover (woody and versatile)
Frederic Malle Uncut Gem (synthetic amber addicitve)
Frederic Malle Une Fleur de Cassie (floral musk)
Chanel Bel Respiro (floral green)
Chanel Le Lion (amber resinous)
Hermes Cuir d'Ange (suave leather)
Gucci Hortus Sanitatis (woody incense)
Les Indemodables Escale en Indonesie (one cologne to rule them all, tough choice between this and Chanel Eau de Cologne)
Hermes Galop (rose)

Really wanted to include but decided they'd be redundant: Malle Angelique, Vetiver and Une Rose, Chanel No.19, Coromandel and Rue Cambon, Hermes Rose Ikebana and Epice Marine.... I could go on
