    Cool Today I Got Rid Of...

    Anybody trying to reduce their collection?

    Trim the fat or sell a bunch to get that one special bottle?


    What did you get rid of today?



    I got rid of:


    Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree

    Dior Eau Sauvage Fraicheur Cuir

    Parfum de Nicolai New York


    Decent fragrances, but they weren't doing it for me.

    Not bad but not something I want to wear much.

    I need to do some culling myself. I have lots of good bottles that get neglected and someone out there can appreciate them more than me. Im surprised you got rid of Chanel PM

    Today I got rid in a swap of 100ml of Bleu, 125ml of Lonach, 100ml of Roadster...but, at the same time, I'm supposed to receive 125ml of Knize Ten EDT, 225ml of Knize Ten Aftershave, 100ml of Van Clef Pour Homme, 125 ml of Yatagan (all back ups bottles)...I can't say I'm reducing my collection.

    I'm in the same boat. Anything I would consider unloading wouldn't have much trade or resale value, and I'm happy with all my more expensive purchases. And honestly, with a $20 or under bargain cologne I only need to wear it a few times a year to feel like I got value out of it. I don't mind a decent sized stock of cheaper stuff on hand because I don't feel any pressure to wear it, and am comfortable just throwing some on for random days.

    However, what I have been unloading are samples of things that aren't really appealing to me. Gotten rid of at least ten in the last month or so.

    Didn't sell anything today from my BN for sale ad. I'm thinking, however, about another round of reducing what I have that I don't seem to wear very often.

    The Chanel was a tough call, but I own others that I would prefer to use in similar situations that would call for it.

    Great thread though... sometime less is more and trimming a frag collection can be a great idea if you want a more focused use of fragrances.

    Im not "getting rid" of any of my frags in the sense, but Im phasing out alot of stuff atm. Meaning when theyre gone, theyre gone. The frags being faced out is:

    Armani - Acqua de Gio
    Armani - Code
    Givenchy - Pi Neo
    Dolce&Gabbana - Light Blue
    Issey M. - L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme Intense
    Issey M. - L'Eau Bleu
    Tierry Mugler - Pure Malt (yeah... THAT one. I like it but dont really need it )

    My most recent sale was Eau du Coq. And I traded away a bottle of Set Sail St. Barts. Besides that, my sale thread appears to be D.O.A..

    I was trying to do the right thing and sell one per new acquisition, but that ain't happening.

    I've slowed right down now, but in the last couple of months I've gotten rid of the following:

    Because they weren't doing it for me anymore:
    Antaeus
    Aventus
    Roadster
    Eau Sauvage Extreme
    Chene
    Tabarome Millesime
    Obsession for Men
    Davidoff Cool Water

    Because I needed the cash/ space for other purchases:
    Azzaro Intense pour Homme
    Givenchy Vetyver
    Fahrenheit Absolute
    Terre d'Hermes parfum
    Original Santal
    Fierce for Men

    Because I have backups:
    Kouros Eau de Sport
    vintage Vetiver Carven

    Passed onto my mom because they were too feminine for my tastes:
    IO Capri
    Royal Water
    Ambre Narguille

    Passed onto my unfortunate friends and enemies because they were gross:
    L'Eau D'Issey pour Homme
    Dirty English
    Diesel Zero Plus
    Ed Hardy Man

    Trying to rid myself of Cuba Gold, after being surrounded by a group of Le Male (I assume) smelling boys on a train journey.

    Also found a new home for Cartier Declaration Bois Bleu. My biggest blind buy dud yet.

    I've never gotten rid of any fragrance.

    I'm pretty sure I will do some culling in the future, but for now, I'm keeping them all.

    Ok lets see:

    Swapped 70ml of Straight to Heaven & 50ml of Azure Lime (all retail) for Bois Oriental, Mandarine Mandarin & Tuberuese Criminelle (all in bell jars and all between 70 and 90%).

    I outright sold GIT & Chergui (and bought other perfumes lol).

    Swapped Aventus (80%) & SMW (90%) for French Lover.

    Gave my mom Anonyme OA- OU123 because she loved it.

    I also traded 40ml of Tuscan Leather and 35ml of Purple Patchouli (decants) for 60ml of Coromandel.

    for swap/sale:

    Well, as I am somewhat of a fragrance hoarder I doubt I actually *will* get rid of these, but based on my preferences I most likely will never wear these again (or at least very rarely) and could have skipped buying them in the first place:

    212 Men
    Calypso Homme
    Cefiro
    Déclaration
    Geir
    Mémoire d'Homme
    Polo Sport (a gift)
    Royal Copenhagen (a gift)
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
    9) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
    9) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie

    Giving them to my parents count as getting rid of them?

    If so, Quorum, because it's suits my father way better than me. And he uses a lot of cologne, i need to keep my loved ones out of his reach!

    I've retired Fahrenheit 32 and Le Male. Can't take that synthetic powdery shit anymore.
