    Argh...the internet makes it too easy to order stuff. I now have enough juice to last me 2 years of daily wear. It's enough (more than enough), but I know I'll just want to order more. $500 worth of cologne since January. (At least I smell nice) Help!

    The problem is, as many have noted, is that there's no Holy Grail of scents, or maybe that there's too many of them.

    I am ashamed to say that even after 2.5years of starting this thread, things haven't changed much for me. I am buying as vigourously as ever and this time the purchases are even more pricey!

    OMG I am running out of room for cologne. I am freaking out because I can not stop buying it. What shall I do?

    Perhaps time to find another less cost prohibitive pastime!

    Your probably right. But I can't stop the addiction of buying colognes.

    Would you be able then to gradually ease up on the amount you buy?

    How long have you been into fragrances? I think any fan experiences a period of "enthusiasm", then you'll naturally start to buy less and less once you focus on what you like - and you realise you don't wear many bottles you own. But on the contrary if you've been doing that for long and if that is becoming a serious issue for you or if you feel it is about to, considering seeing a therapist seems the only way to understand why you're doing that - which is the only key to stop that (or at least. a starting point). Replacing this with another "addiction" or compulsive hoarding won't help.

    That's very good advice. Nicely said.

    JugtownHero,

    Your wardrobe only has 9 fragrances listed. Are these purchases all since joining Basenotes last month?


    Discussion boards can easily fuel buying. You might want to take a vacation from reading Basenotes and other fragrance discussion boards.
