    Default You Know You're Obsessed When...

    ...you dream about a fragrance! I just had a dream about discovering a cache of discontinued cologne at a store! The cologne in question was Romeo Gigli "Sud Est."

    Anyone else out there find themselves with similar symptoms of scent obsession?

    ...you actually help pick out fragrances for your parents.

    ...you go straight to the fragrance counter whenever you visit a department store.

    ...you want to disregard your parents and secretly go to the nearest store that sells Creeds, L'Artisans, etc., even though it's 45 miles away, hitching a ride in the process because you don't have a car, but decide not to go at the last second.

    - "Do I really need a new shirt? I've bought a new shirt six months ago but I bought my last scent two weeks ago..."

    -" (Insert any fragrance here) is on sale! I don't need it and I don't really like it, but hey, it's on sale!"

    -"I'm not addicted, I could stop buying fragrances anytime if I wanted to. But I don't want to right now!"

    - All your friends and relatives are getting scents for christmas, birthdays, bar mitzvahs...

    when you try to sneak past Perfumania and the saleslady waves and smiles at you. Man, I haven't gotten a new shirt for over three years. That's pre-Basenotes days.

    Some other obsessions...bought three pairs of running shoes so far this year.

    Actually, obsession is when your response is to break up with her.

    REAL obsession is when you begin keeping new fragrance purchases in your office cabinet so she doesn't see how much money you've been spending on them.

    Default Re: You Know You're Obsessed When...

    Your co-workers are confused because you wear a different fragrance every day.

    You call local perfume shops asking for L'ANARCHISTE and get frustrated 'cause the only reply you get is "L' WHAT?" :P
    Are you not entertained??? Is this not why you are here??

    ...you dream about a fragrance! I just had a dream about discovering a cache of discontinued cologne at a store! The cologne in question was Romeo Gigli "Sud Est."
    Amusing conicidence, was searching on Romeo Gigli here since I wore it (not Sud Est but the eponymous product) to bed last night and I also had a dream early this morning about Rome Gigli. In my dream I was trying to identify the animalic basenote in the fragrance. I see from the Basenotes pyramid that it is civet.
    All these moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

    JP said in a post concerning how long a fragrance last without going bad, that optimum temperature would be 10-12 degrees (Celsius obviously...) and that a wine chiller is good for that so I think:

    ...When you are buying wine chiller(s) for your fragrances

    ...You are worried that you can take only [insert any number] frags on a trip because of limited space(like "Gah, I can take only ten frags on a weekend trip&quot

    You have all your packages delivered to work, so you can get rid of the packaging and then sneak them home in your purse/bag/briefcase/coat pocket. Then when your family/SO notices a new scent you can say oh that, I've had it for quite a while already.

    You go scent sniffing on your lunch break 'cause who needs lunch. Spending more money on food means less money for fragrances.

    You get the shakes when you can't get to the store to buy your latest must have fragrance find.

    A friend not only did but double-did this almost twenty years ago and I still haven't forgiven her! :-[

    But then again, she had to nerve to try to sell them to me when she realised they didn't suit her... : ;D

    It happened to me with Jicky. I wore it for years and refused to tell anyone what it was. Then one day I slipped and three friends ran out to get it. I was devastated, but I got over it.

    You buy colognes in twos...a 3.4 (or so) ouncer for display...and a smaller one for actual use.

    Coz cologne bottles don't look as good when they're half-way empty :P

    Default Re: You Know You're Obsessed When...

    You have more colognes you are trying to trade in your collection than most normal people own.

    You start referring to people who only own 1 to 4 colognes as 'normal' people.

    You don't wear certain colognes to work because you've smelled them on your coworkers.

    You can name more colognes than your coworkers (actual coworkers' names).

    It takes you longer to decide what cologne to wear when you get up than it does to decide what clothes to wear.

    You've taken a shower for the sole purpose of changing colognes.

    .............when all the sales assistants give you a secret sign in every scent-selling shop meaning "I know who you are and I know that I should not say ANYTHING to the women beside you"

    ............when you check your oven for scents before you bake - just to be sure
