    Thank you. Crazy thing is I just started collecting about a year ago, Kinda scary.

    Those lights are diodes and don't light up much. After seeing JRD4T's setup I'm thinking of getting some of those lights instead.

    JRD4T: are those lights battery powered or electric?

    I agree...I like Burberry Britt alot, on me it is very mild...sweet but not too sweet...the others are Burberry London the Fabric edition and it is nicer and warmer than the original Burberry London although it sometimes has a grape smell in the beginning, and the other is Burberry The Beat...I haven't tried Burberry Touch yet.

    this is rather addicting.
    here is a girly view. the cabinet is from my mom and the black box in front is my childhood jewelry box. the kind with a ballerina that twirls around to the music. the ballerina broke off, but I fit a nice collection of decants and samples inside. there is a mirror too, so everything inside is amplified.
    I miss the ballerina.

    There are two kinds in the cabinet and one in the drawer. The cabinet one are all electric - a couple bars of diode lights (that can be 5 different colors!) with a couple sets of additional diode down-lights. The drawer has one of those battery powered diode bars that turns on for a little bit when you open the drawer and back off when you close it. They claim that it'll last a long time.

    yes, it's Immortelle L'Amour, a comforting gourmand scent reminiscent of coffee and maple sugar. It's companion tea is also quite good.

    That's AWESOME collection you got there --- The total number is about 600, so even you change EVERY SINGLE DAY of the year, it will take you TWO years to rotate back given you don't add new ones!!! That's mind boggling.

    Exactly, it's Aspen.

    I am planning to conduct a side by side comparison between Creed Green Irish Tweed vs. Davidoff Cool Water vs. Coty's Aspen. I've heard so many things about the similarities which intrigues me. But given all the fake GIT flying around the internet, I haven't got a good and reliable source to buy GIT yet.

    .
    You can wait for a poorly listed 2.5oz on eBay. Or just pay the $120-$130 for an authentic 4oz. at a reputable discounter. I'm fairly cheap, and after setting up specific searches on ebay for regular emails, I now have 2 authetic 4oz '07 and '05, for $138/8oz, that included shipping. the lot number and glazing on the bottle text is key.

    As for the comparison, Aspen shares the mintiness/citrus/ and some herbal greenness in the mid-notes, and cool water onviously shares the entire top and has a wetter-violet leaf-type middle. But neither have the Sandalwood/vanilla/Ambergris base with the lingering lower registers of leaf of violet like genuine GIT.

    2 more great for comparison are Truefitt & Hill's Freshman (the happiest synthetic GIT/Cool Water), similar to the 90's cool water, not the new lavender-loaded swill sold as cool water now. Also, Chez Bond copies the dry violet leaf of GIT exactly, but Chez's base was not for me, too much grape kool-aid powder.

    Sorry for thread-jack, back to pics...
