    Talking Am I obsessed?

    To people who are not fragrance enthusiasts I might seem a bit obsessed, but wanted an enthusiast's opinion. It's not that I spend an outrageous amount, although I do have 160+ frags. I collect the minis (5ml/7ml) to go with the big bottles, and if I can't find them I get the correct sample sprays so it has the name of the frag on it. I'll then use these to decant from the big bottles into them and carry them around with me so I can top-up on a particular frag throughout the day and it looks good with a big and mini bottle next to each other. I also fanatically clean my display cabinet and shuffle and re-organize through my best 50 (as this is the top amount that can fit in the cabinet) every time I buy a new bottle. The other 100+ get put in the draw. I don't spend an excessive amount on a single bottle (that's why I don't have and Creeds) but I do trawl through websites everyday to try and find the best deals. I don't have to have a fragrance as soon as it comes out as I have so many on my wishlist/to try list already but do my utmost to test all new releases. Do I take it too far or are you lot worse :P

    Nothing's strange with that. It's a normal behavior after joining basenotes. I've got lots of samples waiting to be tried, and already have more than 400 bottles. We're all obsessed with fragrance, and this will be more intense as time goes by for some, and less for another. Wait and see which group you'll fall into. Some people just suddenly lose the interest in something, like I did with coffee. I once was crazy for it and had tried the coffee beans from many parts of the world. I still drink it anyhow, but just don't care to try new beans.

    I think its a fragrance lovers gene in us
    we need to learn how to control it before it controls us (I think we are a little too late for that though lol)

    That's what I'd call part of being a good curator.

    But 161 bottles... and only one with a five star rating?
