Is it possible to be an active member of this board with falling prey to temptation and buying more fragrances? This is posed as a serious question; I must have spent between 5K - 6K this year and I'm beginning to think that it's getting a little ridiculous. Yes, I love fragrances, but I'm getting to the point where I can't fit any more on my shelves and am finding it difficult to keep all fragrances in my rotation. I'm just coming to the realisation that if I don't spend anything buying more fragrances, I can put the money to better use. Whether it's a family holiday, (more) home improvements or simply allow the money to sit pretty in my account. There are bottles that I have only used once, Jubilation XXV (100ml), Mona di Orio's Oud and Pardon come to mind as being underused for the price I paid for them. I'm interested to hear others' thoughts on this issue. Sure, it comes down to willpower, but I often find myself visiting the board to find out what's new and FBW, thus leading to a purchase. 140+ bottles is surely enough for anyone?! More than enough to last for the next 20 years. I don't need to buy anymore and think I should call time on this hobby for the foreseeable future.
