Ok, so I know we have had various discussions about realizing patterns about our wardrobe, and various experiments involving trying to define our "tastes". I can't speak for everyone, but these experiments ended up proving only that my tastes are ever changing. So, for the sake of satiating my personal curiosity, I propose a similar, yet different activity. Look at your wardrobe and go back, let's say one year. Look at your purchases/acquisitions from the beginning of this time period versus the purchases made closer to the present. Are you still using the older frags with the same frequency as you were when you first made the purchase, have they become a favorite or have they falling out of favor, etc? Do you notice any distinct growth in your tastes? I for one, can clearly say that I have learned, the hard way, to sample thoroughly before making a purchase, because various frags that I had purchased get less and less play as I purchase newer scents that I truly love. For those amongst us that have been into this hobby for a long time may have a difficult time as they may have figured out what they love a long time ago, but if you would like just participate by looking at a snapshot of the 2008 year.
