    Default To finish out a house collection or not...

    So far, I have Bogart PH, Bogart, OMS, OMS Gold, Witness, Silver Scent and City Tower. I also have samples of Silver Scent Extreme and the story red story blue that I am waiting on. I have yet to be disappointed with any of these. So, out of the ones that aren't terribly difficult to find, I don't have Eau Fresh, Arabian Nights, Force Majeure, and Riviera Nights. For those of you that are familiar with these last four do you think that they are worth the purchase? Is there anything similar you might compare them to so I could get an idea? (I'd most likely be ordering some of them from Europe so I'm just a little hesitant to bite the bullet. Thanks for any input, I know that these aren't the most expensive frags, but I could get something else with the cash that I would spend on these, and my finite cologne cupboard space means I have to be selective. I'm just kind of a completest .

    I have 15 Bogart fragrances in my collection including the two newest: Story Blue & Story Red. I also have all that you are considering and IMO they are all fine and worth the small asking price for large bottles. You should also consider Furyo if you can find it.

    If you're happy with One Man Show Gold, then Arabian and Riviera Nights should be fairly safe purchases, I'd say.

    If you are in the U.S. you can get a set of samples on ebay for a pretty reasonable price. I can update with my impressions as soon as I get my samples in.

    Yes but only IF the house has gone the way of the Dodo. Otherwise the 'completist' in you will see you buying every house release no matter how wretched it is.

    I find Arabian Nights to be way too feminine... and too sweet as well. But the others I have tried; excellent

    The collection seems appealing and diversified enough to deserve a completion.
