    Default How do you organize your wardrobe?

    I'm curious to see how everybody places the bottles in his collection.
    1-Brands: by the brand (a CK group, a Creed group,...)
    2-Olfactory: bottles are arranged by the olfactory group (Oriental, Aquatic,...)
    3-Nationality: disposition is by the nationality (Italian, French,...)
    4-Use: disposition by the use (daywear, summer, winter,date,....)
    5-Perfurmer: disposition by the perfurmer (Cavalier,Morillas,...)
    6-Chronological: disposition by the year (from oldest to newest)
    7-Aesthetic: disposition by aesthetic impact (as in a flower arrangement) ex: bottles of the same color, or colors that go well together...
    8-Random: disposition is random
    9-Other

    I originally organized them based on a sort of mix of season and therefore loosely olifactory group from lightest to heaviest but have now rearranged them in a line based on pure olifactory group. Soapy, Floral, Aquatic, Citrus, Green, other fruits/fresh, leather, musk, ambers, incense, gourmand... it's not perfect but I'm still "working" it. plus there are a few that are quite tough to classify.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    By brands. But then again I only have one brand: Good ol' Chanel.

    I stack them as someone would stack empty beer cans although I have been thinking about changing to the 'chenga' method of stacking....

    I said "use," but by that I actually meant, "how often I use them." Then I read your definition. Oops. Other than that, there is no pattern.

    Default Re: How do you organize your wardrobe?

    I tried olfactory, I failed. Now I put them

    top shelve: special occasions/dating
    middle shelve: office, clubbing
    third shelve: summer/spring

    All in all I find it kind of messed up so I decided to let it go without particular order. I started a similar thread once.

    Try seasons: spring/summer; winter/fall; whole year. In my opinion it's doable

    Default Re: How do you organize your wardrobe?

    Presently, mostly by brands. I have the Lutens, Villoresis, Delraes, etc. together.

    But if I had more space, I would like to organize them by olfactory notes, wood, rose, oriental, etc.

    Aesthetic, by general bottle size/shape, although I'm not too picky about it. Usually ends up vaguely organized by brand too---most of the YSL's for example, have roughly the same bottle.
    Looking for Hermessence Ambre Narguile and for TFPB Moss Breches (50ml bottle), willing to pay in cashdollars. PM me!

    Mostly (1) alphabetical by house, mixed with a pragmatic variation on (7) aesthetic: the row that sits on TOP of one shelving unit is dedicated to minis and a few squat/stable bottles, to ensure nothing gets knocked over.

    I go by seasons. Fall/winter scents are up front right now for daily use & aquatics are in the back until late spring.

    Default Re: How do you organize your wardrobe?

    As I have been whittling down my collection to a Top 12ish list (debating 15), I'm pretty cognizant of how I rank them in preference. As of now, I have them in that 1-12 ranking. Previously I had done by use and/or season.

  15. #15

    Default Re: How do you organize your wardrobe?

    I have them in an open box in a drawer.
    Bottles on the left.
    Minis in the middle.
    Samples on the right.
    I also have a bag of stuff I'm going to sell sitting on top of my chest of drawers.

    Default Re: How do you organize your wardrobe?

    I organize by season then subdivide by olfactory group. I am torn between doing it that way and subdividing by use (when I wear it). For instance I have ones just for work, ones for day, ones for night, ones for romantic, ones for comfort etc. then by olfactory group.

    Pretty much how I do it too. Within these categories I will also organize based on temperature and try to establish an ideal range for each fragrance.

    Same here. I suppose I could organize by season, what with dry season starting.


    edit: I do have all 4 of my Knize bottles side by side

    I organize by season. Right now I have my fall and winter scents out. Everything else is in a box in my closet. If for some reason I'm craving a lighter scent, I'll just go in the closet and pull it out.

    Geographically -- a pile here, a scatter there, an odd one lost somewhere, some prepacked in luggage. True description.

    With as many as I have, there is no logical way to do it other than by brands.

    Default Re: How do you organize your wardrobe?

    I would like to do it by olfactory group or some type of usage criteria, as I think that way might be more useful, but like hednic, the only way I can keep up with things is to organize them alphabetically by house.

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    By house or brand but, if there are some orphans, by olfactory theme (e.g. Arabie paired with LADDM).

    Not in the UK! LOL! I gave up on developing a spring/summer sub-wardrobe, solely due to the temperamental weather - I just wasn't using most of what I had.

    Mostly by seasons but not 100% so

  27. #27

    Default Re: How do you organize your wardrobe?

    Mostly by season and size. My fall/winter frags more to the left, and summer/spring to the right. However, I dunno if size is the appropriate word to describe it. They're kind of in a puzzle form to save space, but very neat. Some are horizontal and some are vertical.

  28. #28

    Default Re: How do you organize your wardrobe?

    By Use. I have one box for hot weather, one box for cold weather, and another for all weather. That also helps reduce the # of bottles I have to look at each morning (for example, the cold weather box doesn't get looked at in the summer), thus making my choice a little easier.

    I believe you. In Croatia summers are hot and dry, spring sunny with +10 to +19-21. Autumns are rainy, misty and gray with temeratures +5 to +16 Celsius, winters are cold with -15 to +5 celsius

    So it's doable in Croatia

    I percieve UK as a very gray country with summers not overly hot, maybe 25 degrees celsius top
