Thread: 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.
In my case, won't be happening any time soon!
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
Can't see me ever doing that.
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.

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.
This thread is an excellent idea.
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.
There is an identical thread started by Kevin Guyer back in 2008.
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:
Eau Sauvage Extreme
Obsession for Men
Davidoff Cool Water
Because I needed the cash/ space for other purchases:
Azzaro Intense pour Homme
Terre d'Hermes parfum
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:
Passed onto my unfortunate friends and enemies because they were gross:
L'Eau D'Issey pour Homme
Diesel Zero Plus
Ed Hardy Man

We're all in the same game; just different levels. Dealing with the same hell; just different devils.
My swap list
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.
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:
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) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz) - tie
4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie
6) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio)
7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
9) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
9) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
9) Coeur de Vetiver Sacré (L'Artisan) - tie
9) Polo vintage (Ralph Lauren) - tie
9) Patou pour Homme Privé (Jean Patou) - tie
9) Oud Shamash (The Different Company) - 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.
