    Default Re: (2014) A New Year and a Fragrant Resolution

    I resolve to expand my fragrance collection because it's probably to small. Since it's possible that my parents generation is the last mortal generation I feel it's my duty to stock up for my infinite existence. The prices we pay now for masterpieces will be looked back on as the golden age of fragrance. The people that are shrinking their collection and depriving themselves of new purchases are making a huge mistake.

    I hope your investments don't go bad in a few years...

    I'm doing very well with mine. I haven't bought anything new yet this year, and I've rediscovered how much I enjoy some of what I have that I'd been overlooking. I may treat myself to a first fragrance purchase of the year in March.
    I have a 100ml Gucci Pour Homme 2003 that I'll swap for Reflection Man or De Bachmakov. PM me if interested.

    I went over my Jananuary's budget slightly and need to behave this month

    I agree about appreciating what you have. With my humble 30 bottle collection this is more than enough for me. I'm sure as the months go by I may start getting rid of a bottle here, a bottle there. I'll dwindle my collection most likely and stick with what I wear most because having bottles around that you never use is just a waste and I'm not one to hold bottles around just because they look good in my collection. In a way, I think as someone goes further into their fragrance journey, cutting back on the bottles you have is a sign of progression since what you'll have left are the fragrances you most admire and wear without the clutter and distraction of everything else.

    Haven't bought any FBs
    this year, but my decantshop.com addiction is alive and well. They've been having some kick b*** deals this month.

    I have cut back on the number of bottles, but not the money I spend. Quality, not quantity is my 2014 mantra.

    I'm still going on strong. My last purchase was in mid-December. Enjoying what I currently have and I do not regret my decision at all. My resolution is a bit easier because I still do get fragrance gifts on special occasions (such as Valentines Day) from my wife.
