    Default Fragrance Categorization/Organization

    As a obsessive person, I am continually looking for the best ways to organize my growing collection. Thus out of curiosity, I'm wondering - how do you guys organize your collections, particularly those of you with 30+ bottles.

    By brand? Fragrance category? Shape of bottle? Color of juice? How do you guys keep track of this many bottles?

    I organise roughly by categorisation, shoving them either in front or along the the side the clothes in my dressing table drawers - chypers, fougeres, ambery fougeres, citruses, ambery orientals, spicy orientals all have their own drawers. But niche ones I just threw all together in one drawer.

    The cheaper ones, or those I have more than one bottle of (because they were cheaper), I keep in the bathroom cabinet.

    Being half Scottish I like to economize when I can. I found a cast-off bookshelf that admirably holds much (though not all) of my collection. I group things in a vaguely systematic way, in family categories (citrus, wood and spice, incense, fougere) which are my main interests. I have to stack them two or three deep sometimes, but I'm tall and can peer behind the various boxes. And I store them all in boxes, no bottles in view.

    I store my stash on a curio-type shelving unit in my 2nd floor hallway. I organize them by "scent family" like citrus/fruity, floral-fruity, "just" floral, marine, oriental-spicey, foody-gourmand and so on.... The ones I tend to use most are lined up in front. I display mine out of boxes, because I like the look of "pretty bottles."
