    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.

    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

    My goodness, these are nice pictures! Amazing, wonderful, inspiring pictures! I have enjoyed looking at your pictures so much! Thanks to each one of you for posting these pictures. I don't have a camera, but suddenly I see a good reason to get one.

    I am surprised to see so many refrigerators and even a wine cooler. I had no idea so many Basenoters were using refrigerators or coolers to store the bottles of their wardrobes. It just so happens that my fragrance storage situation has been getting awfully crowded, and also I might be moving to a new home soon. Hmmm, maybe I should buy a new fridge and just have it delivered directly to my new home.

    The two main things seem to be light and heat. Cold and dark is good. If I stop being lazy and clean out my old dormroom fridge, I'll use it.

    There was a thread a while ago saying that the Grasse Institute keeps their reference stores in cold storage, but I can't remember if a specific temperature and/or humidity were specified.

    Thanks, Paul. The sad thing about it is that's just one room (I didn't even get into the bathroom, where I keep a lot of daily-use frags) in my apartment here in the 'states... at my closet-sized apartment in Japan there's even more...

    So, (INSERT SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION HERE), that's much of the reason why I've put so many decants for offer in the swap/sales forum. After doing an inventory over the holidays, I realize that I'm just never going to use all of it. After a while, you find yourself asking, "how did I end up with this much stuff?"

    I thought that once so I sold most of my stuff, gave away about 30 bottles to friends and then started over. I'm getting in deeper and more expensive now...
