I just finished a bottle of EDT 31 Rue Cambon -- so sad to see an elegant bottle empty and nothing to do with it but throw it in the garbage.

Congrats on a job well done! Will you be getting more 31 rue Cambon?

ClockworkAlice has some good ideas. I don’t keep the unrefillable bottles either but The parfum bottles I do. You never know when you might come across a parfum deal in a damaged bottle and be able to transfer it. Of course those occasions are kind of like the odds of winning the lottery but one can hope… :)

Finished my first niche purchase (2 years ago): Bleecker Street by Bond n9.
Actually feels good to finish something, it is a bit weird.
I am not a big fragrance collectioneur (have 5, now 4, full bottles and 2x30ml decants). So I feel I can reward myself with a new bottle quest without culpabilities :) Will not repurchase this one. Got a bit tired of it, although it was one of my wife's favourites.

EDIT: OUPS SORRY, did not see it was feminine discussion forum, I type "finished bottle" in search engine without paying attention.

First of all - congrats on your finish! Do you already have something new in mind, or will the search just begin?

Secondly - no worries! Everyone is welcome to join the discussion on recent finishes.

Thank you that is kind :)
I do, I am thinking of purchasing Philosykos edp, but I will also consider something like Chanel n19 edp. But that is for next year, since I will hardly wear them in this upcomming cold winter anyway :)

Both seem to be great choices for spring - but you're right, you still have plenty of time to decide which one you like better.

Congrats, GWM! I feel the same way about those bottles. Ideally they could make the bottles refillable and I could decant into the smaller bottle for ease of handling. The big bottles are too bulky for a firm grasp and the small bottles are not economically feasible for a frequent wearer. (Not that the large bottles are economically a bargain either! ☺️)

My guess why they don’t do it is their tight anti-tampering/counterfeit control. They don’t want the bottles filled by anyone other than Chanel. Understandable but I keep dropping those bottles. Luckily they’re very strong.
