-1 to wardrobe as I'm putting Loverdose travel spray away to give it away to someone who likes it better
+1 to wardrobe as my Guerlain Lui arrived
-1 to samples: giving away a sample of Datura Blanche to a friend

Wardrobe: +13 (-18; +31)
Samples: +58 (-7; +69)
Backups: +7 (-2; +9)

I can see that my maths on samples are clearly off, I think I either forgot to add some additions or to minus some finishes/pass alongs. Oh well. At least the others seem right:)

The Tragedy of Lord George is great!

Yeah, it's nice!


I have an urge for buying new fragrances now. I don't know why but I really want to try new fragrances :) I added a decant of V&R - Antidote and ended a sample of Penhaligon's - Quercus. So a neutral balance the last week. But I want more! :)

Bottles: -1 (+2, -3)

Samples/decants: -20 (+19, -39)

I’m trying to reduce my collection. Sold about 40 and replaced them with about 10 that I will actually wear.

I already have about 30 in my collection so I started with a total of 70 and ending with 40. Still a lot but I feel like an average of 10 per season isn’t bad at all (for basenotes standards).

Congratulations!
I hope you'll enjoy your updated, trimmed, renewed and refined wardrobe :thumbsup:

-2 to Wardrobe (Contradiction, Sunrise in Cadaquès - I see I pretty much never want to wear them, so they go away)
+3 to Wardrobe (Smuggler's Soul, Mitsouko EDT, + opened Miroir des Majestes that I bought half a year ago)
+2 to samples

Wardrobe: +14 (-20; +34)
Samples: +60 (-7; +71)
Backups: +7 (-2; +9)

I bet you'll enjoy a pared down collection...I know I do. But, I've been down this road before...we'll see if I can stick to it this time.

Since the new Basenotes now has a Decants section in Wardrobe, I'm doing some rearrangements.

-1 to Wardrobe: Lush Twilight goes to Decants (it doesn't go to this year's count as I have it from before)
-1 to Samples: Boudoir goes to Decants
+1 to Wardrobe: bought a small bottle of Bvlgari Omnia
-1 to backups: finished a small bottle of Alaia Nude and opened a big one (wardrobe count didn't change)

Wardrobe: +15 (-21; +36)
Samples: +51 (-15; +70)
Decants +1 (-0; +1)
Backups: +7 (-3; +10)

I've had a sample of Festival Vibes by Hollister that just got added to the directory. Now it's time to start wearing it then :) I also ended a sample of Patchouli Ardent by Guerlain. It grew on me!

Bottles: -1 (+2, -3)

Samples/decants: -19 (+22, -41)
