    I can see Etat Libre D'Oranger!
    And I consider Guerlain as niche.
    Nice collection

    Yeah, that's about it for the niche offerings for the time being, apart from the Lutens miniature and the Ormonde Jayne purse sprays. Thanks, I've a way to go yet.

    I did. Thanks. My normal camera isn't great. I need to get a macro lens. I like the look of the fragrances up close. Although, some of the expansive shots on here from others are fantastic as well.

    Talking Re: Post a Picture of Your Scents - Edition VI

    Just got a new glass cabinet, have re-organised the collection and thought I'd upload some pics. My collection is almost niche-free, containing only one Creed frag, but I have my eye on another Creed, a few Tom Ford and maybe some Amouage in the future. It houses approx 160, where the frags near the top are typically my favourite, with the lower levels are 3*/2* rated scents, with the remaining 30+ remaining rejects being cast to the shoe box under the bed :P Recently got back into buying again so will hopefully replace all the poor scents with ones off my wishlist very soon. Any comments appreciated

    This Dior Homme pic is my favorite so far (helps that I really like the Dior Homme line bottles in general). Love the colors, composition, clarity and artistic nature of it. Amazing that you did this with an iphone. Really enjoying all of your pics!

    It is actually a normal 2-door fredge
    but slightly smaller than standard size
    I specifically bought it after my recent Roja & Clive
    purchase, which are worth upto 10 times the price
    of the fredege, bare in mind
    that I live in a place where the temp shoots to 50c in the summer!

    Haha touche sir. The Light Blue has been in here for 4 years, it was a gift from an ex, even more of a reason not to wear the crap. I really need to start selling some of the stuff I don't wear, to make some money back for better stuff

    Very nice recent picks and I can imagine your taste relatively by your collection, standing nearly in the same line of scents.
    And I like and wonder small bottle sizes you've bought! Do you think they're enough?! I go through the Aventus in maximum 6 months plus using other ones in rotation!!!
    I appreciate tha you dared pay more money per ml for your purchases!
    Overall congratulations! Enjoy them...

    Thanks, nfn It's a neat collection I've got but I want to expand it with so much more. I can honestly tell you the only scents I use are Aventus, TdH, Encre Noire, Oolang Infini, Spicebomb and Nautica Oceans there. There rest I consider "old" and only keep it because I can't throw them away. Also I have purchased so many samples that I sometimes wear them as my daily fragrance. The Aventus was a blind buy just going on the raving reviews and I'm so glad that it smelled so good, considering its price tag. It would have been foolish to buy a full bottle of it, although I know that I'd easily be able to sell it.
    I would love to buy a larger bottle now but there are other scents on my wish list and as you can see the bottle is 98% full so I'm in no rush to do so

    The rare Paco Rabanne Tenere bottle I bought just because it's rare, I didn't feel that scent was that wearable. I occasionally sniff it just to remind myself how it smells Same goes with the now discontinued Viktor & Rolf Antidote that stands next to it.
    The Joe Bloggs bottles behind them only cost $5 dollars each; I used to wear them a lot 2 years ago but that was before entering the niche market. Now I feel cheap if I wear them but I'm too kind to let them go.

    Are there any scents you could recommend to add to my collection as we seem to have a similar taste?

    Got really happy with your answer!
    One thing I can tell you that I myself experienced is stop yourself and do NOT buy fragrances just because they are discontinued or rare to find unless you've planned to be a collector! Only and only buy scents that you really appreciate, because in the past decade perfumery has progressed and many really GREAT scents have been made worthy of purchase. So if you just continue buying rare and discontinued scents without considering if they appeal to you or not (what I've done in the past 3 years and I'm regretful of that now really!) soon you'll face a large but just semi-effective collection that has costed you many dollars!!!
    Now I prefer to buy larger size bottles of the scents I really LOVE than just buying ok and just good scents!
    Also consider that life maybe too short to pass with cheap smells!!!
    Really will be happy to know what you think.
