    Probably 24 Gold. Reason being that I didn't give it enough time. Made my mind up on it after a day and sold it. Fairly sure I made the right call but should have given it more of a chance.

    Black Code and Bulgari Aqua are only 2 that I sold. I was tired of Aqua and Black Code is not that great but I would wear it once in month for sure.

    Homage Attar - Loved the smell but found it to be too feminine for my tastes at that time which now having smelled way more frags I wish I had kept it.

    100ml McQueen Kingdom, I had a small bottle of it already and assumed I wouldn't finish it so sold my big one (back when it was readily available) - that sucks, because the same thing costs me 10x the price now and I still love it.

    Green Valley by Creed, back in the early 2000s I thought it was good but nothing special. However, it has really grown on me over time and now I regret not keeping the bottle I had and stocking up on additional bottles before it was discontinued.

    I keep answering male discussion threads - i hope you guys don't mind?

    When i came over to Alaska, i had to part with about 13 bottles, as space in the case was limited, but of those, the only ones i regret parting with, because they are irreplaceable are Flowerbelle Leilac and Flowerbelle Rouse the company no longer exists, and i have not been able to find them anywhere. It still makes me sad to think of it

    YSL Nu EdP.

    I sold it a few months ago, relatively cheaply, during a purge of my collection, and almost immediately regretted it.
    Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.

    I've sold off/given away/thrown away quite a few without regrets.

    I don't get rid of things quickly, though. They have to be on my unused list for some time before they go. Unfortunately this applies to many other things in the house...which reminds me, I have some stuff to take to Goodwill today.

    I never got rid of anything for quite a while and went through a period where I didn't buy anything new. Then I started to run low on some favorites and there were a few new things I wanted to buy. So I ruthlessly went through my collection and put everything I didn't wear regularly on a sales thread. For the most part, I don't regret it and found it very liberating, plus I picked up a little cash.

    As I posted above, YSL Nu EdP is the only fragrance I really miss. However, I somewhat regret selling my backup bottle of Escada Magnetism, especially since I didn't realize it had been discontinued and let it go for a very low price, thinking I could always repurchase it reasonably if I missed it.

    I did give Azzaro Chrome away because it made me sneeze. I don't regret it, I just wish whatever was in it didn't make me sneeze, as I find the fragrance versatile and wearable.

    I've no regrets, as I usually muse it over for several weeks or months. But, if I could improve one of the fragrances I no longer have and then reinstate it, I would select Fumerie Turque - the longevity on me was abysmal.

    Probably Frapin 1270, as the longevity on me was terrible. I do adore the scent...maybe I will get a sample/decant...

    It was Rochas Lui until I reacquired it recently. Vintage M7 is probably first, and vintage Michael Kors is probably second.

    Sometimes, though, I have to remind myself that I probably was not too crazy about them in the first palce to have parted with them!

Found it too feminine from day one and only sprayed it two or three times and never gave it a full wearing, Sat in my cupboard for months till I decided to sell it. Then saw it again in all these YouTube reviewers top winter list and now thinking if I made the right choice..

    Maybe Acqua di Parma Assoluta, felt it wasn't appropriate for my age, but deep down inside personally I adored the smell of it. Regret giving it to my uncle (sigh)

    MPG - Route du Vetiver, Vintage. Regret it immensely; I swapped it about 10 days before I became aware of the significant reformulation. Still hurts.

    I was somewhat shocked the first time I smelled La Nuit De L'Homme on a card. I thought "this is what everyone is raving about?" The SA at Macy's kindly gave me a sample and I would wear it only when going out for the evening. You're correct, it's a little on the feminine side but over time it grew on me and I ended up buying a 100ml bottle.

    For the most part, no regrets, though I occasionally crave Bond No. 9 Gramercy Park from time to time.

    But I do wish that I had bought replacement bottles of Terre d'Hermes and M7 after I ran out of those two (so far, the only colognes that I have ever emptied). Maybe one of those two will be on my Christmas list.
