    I hope this works. It's my first encounter with a photo hosting site.

    My husband is a whiz at solving storage problems. Whenever I have a storage problem, he just makes me something to suit. Perfumes are easy, compared to storing some of my artists materials.

    Our bedroom is small, so we've gone to wall cabinets, to save space.

    The first picture is the two cabinets closed showing their position on the wall.

    The second shows my current set up. Note the clever solution to keeping samples upright. Just some blocks of wood drilled to an appropriate depth and size to hold the vials.

    The third shows the crowded situation with trying to keep perfumes and makeup together.

    I already want to take another pic adding the stuff I got the other day at Ross and Marshalls. (Will talk about these on another thread, probably the one about L de Lolita.) But I have no idea where to put this stuff or if I might return a few things!

    LiliB, what nice cabinets! I like the idea of wall mounted storage, and the wood drilled with holes as sample holders sounds great. Nice that your husband is handy and willing to makes those things for you.

    Yes, more!

    I failed to type what I was thinking earlier about Volley's photo, which was something akin to: Aaaaaaaahhhh, oooooohhhhhh. Words often fail when the visual cortex gets over-stimulated. Suffering the same vocabulary shortage with LiliB's open-door photo. It's just so darned satisfying, I can't express it.

    What I see in Lilybelle's closet is a pure love of fragrance. It's all about the nose experience. There's no ulterior collector's obsession, nor ego-infested need to show off. This attitude is fascinating and attractive to me because "casual" is so difficult for me.

    Took down Mr. L'belle's pic? No matter. I've got it memorized: smirky smile; dark gray t-shirt; two big watermelon drips on the right side of the belly; light-colored, smooth-profile cabinetry; microwave over black stove; small-tile backsplash. The mister's more charming and vigorous looking than he appeared in that shot from the Christmas party at L's mom's house.

    Galwaygirl, you have a terrific combination for someone claiming "beginner" status. I envy the journey you are on.

    Yes, pity our poor husbands. We are unreasonable.

    Most have seen my obsessive-compulsive stashes, but I'll provide these updates which reflect a paring down of bottles and ever-tightening regimentation of samples and decants.

    Oooooohhh....aaaaahhhh....Quarry! Your shrine. Just gorgeous! ♥ ♥ ♥ That is what I aspire to. Thank you for your kind interpretation of my messiness. Yes, hubby is happier in his own home than in my mom's. You are extremely observant! What a great visual memory you have!

    Quarry, Your aesthetic is stunning. And your ribbon-laced tray is inspired, not to mention gorgeous.

    lol bookwyrmsmith, "skin for extra testing" - himself is not impressed with that suggestion!
    volley2 - love your collection - I'm only on basenotes a short while, but I recognise most of the bottles now! You must be the best smelling person in shanghai!
    Quarry - thank you! Your bathroom is beautiful - so elegant!
