    I thought it would be a good idea to celebrate the new year with a second edition, where I encourage everyone who wants to show their up-to-date collection to inspire me and others!

    Cheers, and happy new year everyone!

    Where do you get the cabinet?

    The 3 glass cabinets are from Ikea. The smaller cabinet, also from Ikea, holds my niche decants.

    The 3 tall cabinets come with overhead lights, and even though I think it would make the display look better, they're never used, as I understand light and heat are no-nos for fragrances.

    BN porn? Those are some amazing set-ups, and a drool-worthy picture from jrd4t. I spent quite some time scrolling through the other thread as well. Jrd4t, you should post the successive pictures of your growing collection from the other thread all together, I really enjoyed seeing it evolve.

    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Thanks so much!

    I have 2 shoeboxes full of fragrances that didn't quite "make the grade," but I re-evaluate them from time to time, and some have made their graduation to the collection!

    I lost my job several months ago, and when I think of how much money I spent on these guys, it makes me cringe. Still, I wouldn't sell 'em for anything. Well...

    It looks a bit like the old houses along the canals. They are tall and thin, plus they have big glass windows on the facade.

    JRD, I'm not worthy. Jiminy crickets! That is gorgeous. You are right. It makes sense to put it all where you can see it together. I'm really inspired now to finish my organizing project. It won't compare visually but it will be nice to have everything together in one place at last.

    had a bit of trouble with the flash ( or lack thereof) but here are some gold bottles, some red, black and purple, and finally, men's fragrances:


    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    you perhaps have solved the puzzle! and that would make sense, since my husband is a painter and is obsessed with architectural details and urbanscape:

    That's some awesome painting, there!
    Stereo: I'm a nitpicker, so while I think you're right, I'd add that it reminds me more of the warehouse-type houses, like the attachment and the 2nd house from the right in your picture.

    Felt inspired by your pretty perfume tray, so here's my rendition:

    Still need to find a better system for that.

    rtamara - that bottle of Atrape Couer looks familiar.... ;-) Nice to see it in such good company.

    This is my current 'top shelf' of sorts (it's constantly rotating):




    Sorry for the bad resolution - I need to use something better then my cell camera, but my camera recently STB.

    Here they are sorted by house (front to back) There are a few missing.
    Sorry for the weird angle, and nasty lighting - once I get proper storage for my fragrances I'll take another.

    O Gawd

    In another thread Im saying I bought to many bottles in one year to really enjoy each perfume in its own right, and now all i can think of is just to get more pretties and how to display them nicer

    Futami´s display is close to mine, an open cabinet but mine is more..disorganized except for the L´Artisan shelf.
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    jrd4t your collection is breathtaking...I hope to have a display like that someday.
    Thank you both and right back at you again.

    XXEnNyXx, I just recently discovered that Burberry Brit is wearable (recieved it in a swap). Having had problems with London and Touch before I was naturally sceptic. As it turns out, I very much like its fresh powdery accord and now I better understand the_good_life's praise for it.
