    Default Post A Picture of Your Scents

    I remember someone started this thread and I enjoyed it very much. We should do it again. So please post a picture of your collection.

    I think that's a great idea too, I enjoyed those threads. I'll definitely get a picture tomorrow for this.

    The coffeebeans do overpower everything else in my fridge, so the only thing you smell upon opening the door is... coffee

    But it must be on your PC and stored at a hosting site such as www.photobucket.com .

    Don't have any of my scents right now.

    Here are some poorly-stitched panoramas of my collection. Sorry about the lighting.

    The PopTart box holds most of my samples. The small bottles in front of it are some perfume oils and decants.

    Doesn't matter, I love the shot !! I will experiment with pb then. When was doing the Zurich Shopping Guide, I could not insert pictures.
    So I resigned to linking only, and it still looks like a construction site! I would like to add one taken in theTauer shop recently. I use Firefox.

    Cool composition! And what a delicious mess! I wouldn't mind being locked in that room for 24h !

    This is an aesthetic masterpiece! Very nice photographs, and beautiful for the European eye. You just inspired me!

    I love seeing these pictures. It's like seeing a picture of a good friend in the newspaper or something: "Hey! It's my friend Rive Gauche, looks like he's been hanging out with HackerX et al!"

    Someone with more spare time than me should take it upon themselves to take pictures of their bottles to fill in the blanks in the Basenotes Directory.

    Nice collection, Costello. I see many "old friends" in there.

    But, it looks like your freezer is trying to eat your decants. Thaw that sucker out, or else you'll find your Coriolan enveloped in ice!!! j/k

    You are right. It looks like my fragrances have to spend a nice 2-day vacation in my regular fridge while thawing their home.

    DAMN nice display! And a whole shelf devoted to Creed. That shelf alone looks like it's worth well over $1500! You have the temp set about the same as my fridg but mine is not near as perty.

    Johnny_V!!! That's what's up!, as we say in NYC!

    I do not have a digital camera right now. As soon as I do I will join this thread. I am very impressed with the mini fridges for storage. Nice work!

    Thanks everyone for your comments.

    Supermarky - I got it at Second Cup Cafe for about $10-$15 CAD.

    MadScientist - It's alot more than that - I got most of the stuff at an auth dealer here in Canada. 3 are testers and 3 were purchased online with a discount. The rest are all legit. As for the temperature - I set it at 15C - but since I was openning and closing the door taking different pics - the temp went down. I set it on 15 but the unit varies between 12 and 16 degrees. At 16 degrees the motor kicks in and stops at about 12-13. The unit itself can go as low as 5C.

    I wish I had gotten the bigger cooler - the one that's the size of a fridge. The problem with this unit is that there are too many bottles (or the unit itself is not big enough) - it's a pain to try and get something in back. Not to mention that I always got to bend over to get something inside it.

    Anyways - keep posting

    A stupid question from a neophyte:

    What is the best way to keep the fragance bottles in perfect conditions? A dry place? Cold compartiment? Maybe a fridge? At what temperature?

    I dont have idea!!

    Dan, I've never seen you say anything about your Dorissima Narziß or maybe I haven't been paying attention. Lovely fragrance and not very talked about. I wish it was a part of my wardrobe...
