    For only one month in the hobby, this is an excellent collection. One of the best I've seen from a beginner in the hobby.

    Thanks, I've acquired more since then and let some go that are in the pic. Since that picture I've obtained bottles of.. Bleu de Chanel, Allure Homme Edition Blanche, Black XS, B*Men, LIDG, GPHII, Pure Malt, Spicebomb, L'eau D'issey PH, Prada Amber PH Intense, Portfolio Elite, and others. As well as decants such as Antidote. (Currently waiting on Aventus and Guerlain PH Intense bottles )... I've been 'busy' gathering more frags, haha.

    Harvey Nichols in Central & The One (Nathan Rd) carry the full line. I have been lucky to pick up a few vintage from a couple of smaller old shops but there's not much here at all.

    Thanks! - I am looking for Eau de Guerlain (bee bottle atomizer) should be able to find here i suppose!

    Malaysian Guerlain is pathetic!

    I'm a relative newbie to the fragrance world, and I'm still waiting for a few Creed decants. I also clear out and reshuffle fairly frequently, having just got rid of a few about a week ago. Regardless, here's my current selection of good, bad and ugly:



    I think that the Topman and the Lanvin (both on the far left) will be on the way out soon. At least they were only £20 combined, but they sadly just can't cut it with some of the big boys in my collection. Also trying to get rid of the final bit of AHS, a fragrance I won't purchase again.

    Pic quality doesn't look that good, hah. Anywho, updated pic.

    ALL of these frags are since May of this year, with exception of Drakkar Noir and maybe Axe ones in pic.



    There's ones that aren't visible/blocked a lot such as LIDG, Play Intense, The Dreamer, B*Men, PAPHI, Rochas Man, Animale Animale, Original 1910, Chrome, The One for Men.

    @Rubegon : very nice cabinet and superb collections. I think you should make it much larger than it is as it seems to be full already lol. Perhaps you could make another larger one to accomodate all your future purchases hehehe.

    Thanks, everyone. I am pretty proud of my handiwork. I went to Ikea and came back with $400 worth of flat pack. 3 days later ... voila! I was worried about the weight, so I screwed oak boards to the walls with long wood screws, and then attached the cabinets to the oak. I wasn't going to trust the collection to 4 drywall anchors!

    I still have a little tweaking to do - neater routing of the wires for the lights, and the doors need to be adjusted. you can tell they aren't square when they are all closed. I may also add more LED lights to the bottom shining up. Still, it looked nice enough that I was motivated to break out the SLR and tripod rather than using my iPhone as usual (all my bottle shots are iPhone/iPad photos).

    My plan is to try to manage the collection to what fits in there. My backups, vintage hoard, and special bottles are stored separately in a closet, so I have some overflow. I can also probably pack a bit more tightly if I have to. Worst case, I can buy 2 more narrow cabinets of the same type - with a wood finish perhaps - and add them to the sides. Wife might kill me in my sleep if I do though.

    MR - I just realized you have the Amouage Sandalwood attar - very nice! I looked for it in Oman, but they don't seem to have it there, or perhaps they stopped making it. How is it?

    For only one month in the hobby, this is an excellent collection. One of the best I've seen from a beginner in the hobby.



    Hardcore designer collection right here.
    You might want to reconsider where you put your bottles. There seems like a lot of sunlight coming in from that window......

    Yeah - I only get insane about 1 thing at a time, so it gets kinda concentrated.

    Y'all need to come over! In a couple weeks maybe?

    How do you get some special decants from Khun Kiat, such as Amouage and Noir de Noir.
    I've never seen those be available on his shop a year ago, Why?, it not fair
    ...anyway I believe your collection is so much more interesting, I think I've seen KarmaKamet one there.

    Mine are all in boxes, on shelves, and I don't feel like getting them all out to take a pic, however I might take a pic of the current position regardless.
