    Default What do you think of my collection so far?

    Just barely started getting into fragrances back in early December. Sorry in advance for all of you Le Male and Platinum Egoiste haters. Here is what I have collected so far:





    Here are my samples:

    You seem to have done a lot of sampling. If so, and you like your bottles, that's all that matters. Some BNers are into popular stuff, some only wear niche, some prefer vintage, some even wear a lot of "women's" frags. The opinions you will get will mostly reflect such preferences, I'd guess.

    I don't know why do you have to feel sorry about what you love (Le male, egoiste)? I like your collection, keep it up

    Looks good. I like most of the ones I know, incl. Le Male. Wasn't too fond of Brit myself but it's not a bad scent.

    Yeah, Le Male and Platinum Egoiste are great fragrances. Burberry Brit, on the other hand, I just could never like.

    Looks nice - I like Egoiste Platinum (Lovely Lavander) - trust your nose only.

    Nice collection. Is that dior higher energy? I think that dior higher energy and platinum egoiste smell similar.

    A year from now take a look back and see how your nose has changed

    Nice Collection

    I started this hobby in August 2011, and I'm on 135 Designers and 12 Niche now

    Egoiste Platinum is AWESOME !

    I love it, sometimes I blend it with the cheap fresh Nautica Voyage with very nice results.....

    Don't be afraid of experimenting - trust your own nose as said by another wise BN'er above !

    The square one in the middle is Intimately Beckham. I got it for $4 at Kohls. And those 10 mL samples are of Musc Ravageur.

    I really want to like Burberry Brit, I just can't.

    Nice collection! I'm a bit jelly.

    I also see a very diversified kind of smells, of notes. You didn´t choose many scents alike each other, that was nice.

    I've spent quite a bit so far. I'm currently saving up for a new car, so the collecting of cologne will have to slow down for now. As for I Love NY For ALL, it's a really nice fragrance. It's sweet, just what I like.
