    Default Post A Picture of Your Collection

    In the mens thread, this has become popular. Now it's your turn to show off your collection.

    I've always had one on my public profile. Take a look-see. I call it my Perfume Shrine, and it resides in my drawer, all nice and dark and scentful.

    Been checking out the men's thread too and just waiting to borrow work's digital camera so I can post one of my modest collection! I think this is fun

    Well, I see this thread never caught on, but I'll add to it, here's the box where I keep everything:



    Here's the newest addition to my collection:



    And here are most of them, out of the box just for a picture:

    I keep my perfumes in an old wooden hutch that my great, great grandfather made for his bride as a wedding present. He was not a professional furniture maker, but inspired by love, he turned out an heirloom that I treasure.

    I don't know how to attach pictures to a post, but I have pictures in my album "Behind Closed Doors" in my public proflle.

    Thanks cello!

    Pomander, I love your hutch. Very nice that it has at least two different sizes of shelves, so you have one for parfums, and others for FBs. I am going to need a different solution at some point because there are already some things that are fitting pretty awkwardly.

    I'm ready to bite on some more FBs. I get a little gun-shy once it gets around the 100 dollar mark. But my decants of LADDM and Diorella are dwindling. Will probably also add one of the Poisons.

    I hope more people post pictures, I love seeing them.

    This subject shows up under various titles and then ebbs away. In hopes of getting more to post pix and get them congregated in one spot here in the female forum, I'll take the liberty of copying pix from this thread.

    LiliB and Pomander photos are a bit large to post. On that note: If you upload your photos to webshots.com, you're given multiple posting size options.

    Quarry Is that your bathroom?? Forget the bottles, that bathroom is to DIE for! Love it. (The collection is nice, too, though)

    And leads me to a question that you have probably answered in some other thread around here on storage, but can you explain that nifty storage you have on the tray holding your decants? What is that contraption? Ribbons? Elastic bands? I'm soooo intrigued and think I can make something similar work for me if only I know HOW you did that??!

    Hi, chaplain ~ Thank you. I'm hopelessly in love with my home (quarryschool.com). We have been excrutiatingly faithful in its restoration, except for my powder room, which I wanted to turn into a girlie grotto (the boys' urinals used to be lined up against that wall you're looking at).

    Here's a link to the thread about the tray strung with ribbons. Originally I wove the ribbon in a caning pattern, but needed more holes, so restrung it in a simple criss-cross pattern.

    Why have l only just found this thread?! l think it's a great idea to have all our pics collected in one place, just like the boys do!

    Quarry, thankyou so much for including mine! l've only added 2 bottles since then; L'Heure Bleue EDP & Anne Pliska extrait. Quite a few new samples though. l really must get them all out sometime soon & take some proper pics. l'll post them here when l have!

    ln the meantime, l wanna see more perfume porn, please please people!

    I thought I'd go ahead and post my current favorites, because I think they look nice on my new dresser, which I refinished and 'antiqued'.
    I chose the large format for better visibility.

    WOW....Thanks Hilaire. What a fantastic vintage bottle of HABIT ROUGE. Great
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am.

    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”

    Thanks, Teardrop. No, not at all, I just felt like taking a picture for the thread. I otherwise keep each bottle boxed.

    I love the composition of your photo, Nuria. It must have been fun setting up for the photo shoot -- like playing with dolls. Thanks for taking the time to provide us with this display.
