    Default Looking to minimize….help me pick 10!

    So I’m looking to get rid of my collection with the exception of keeping 10 bottles. I’m looking to have a diverse line-up so I could have like 3-4 day cologne (or warm weather), and 3-4 night cologne (or cold weather) and the other few could be used for special occasions or multi-use. For example, I have Hamptons and SMW, and Boise Fruite and MI (both duos to me smell pretty similar), so I’m looking to pick the better choice. My goal is to have a minimized fragrance collection with ones that are mostly inoffensive with a couple exceptions!

    Here’s my wardrobe right now:

    GIT
    SMW
    Erolfa
    Original santal
    MI
    Himalaya
    Givenchy ph Blue label
    Bond Hamptons

    Personally I'd say you should only get rid of the fragrances you don't like and know you'll never want to wear again...you never know when you're interest in a fragrance will rekindle. I'm always going through my collection, sampling bottles I haven't used in a long time. Sometimes I find I have a whole nrw appreciationn for scents I once lost interest in. It's easier to just put a bottle away in the closet then sell it and have to repurchase.

    if you insist om downsizing I would keep those hardest to replace and/or those you like the most. If it were me it would be the Malles, Chanels, Dior Homme, Rochas Man, and Bois Fruite.

    Okay, 15 is fine! But I can't imagine keeping more than 15, right now I just don't want 40 bottles laying around (some of which I won't even use more than once a month). :-)

    Fair enough, even though I LIKE 40 bottles lying around, knowing I HAVE got them

    Anyways, I'd pick :

    GIT
    Erolfa
    Himalaya
    Musc Ravageur
    Boss Bottled
    Versace PH
    Versace Dreamer
    Versace Blue Jeans (darn, they do make quite a few good frags )
    Rochas Man
    Dior Homme (might exchange for joop jump)

    It is probably faulty if we assume these are all equals.

    I bet there are definite preferences you have. I wouldn't weed them out based on what our impressions may be, but rather on what you like best.
