    AdP Colonia - have a stock of some earlier versions but have now found alternatives as the current version is not to my liking.

    Great question, but I really don't know. Nowhere near finishing any bottles. All bottles I have that I don't like I keep around - just in case. Samples too.

    However, there is a chance I will never wear Bentley for Men Intense (bad blind buy) this year. Or My split of Atelier Gold Leather. Probably a lot of samples I wont get around to in 2014... But I keep them around just in case.

    Actually I think I will get rid of the samples that I find horrible - not much chance I will change my opinion on Xerjoff Zafar or some others. I like to keep them around for reference though.

    Encre Noire
    Bentley Intense
    Mont Blanc Individuel

    Those are very favorable to the BN Community..
    I have to agree with Bentley Intense also though..
    Happy I only have a small decant.

    At first I was holding on to My bottle of Bond No. 9 I Love NY For All to remind me to never blind buy again but now I will be able to remember that without keeping the damn thing.

    If somebody wants to buy it ;-)

    Beyond Paradise - bad blind buy influenced by a rave write up in a perfume book. It was so cloying I felt as though I'd suffocate. I learned a valuable lesson and that is to either test a sample or cross check write ups and reviews carefully. Luckily my experience was relatively inexpensive.

    Thought this one might be a bit over-hyped.

    Mine is Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille. Glad I only wasted $50 on a decant rather than buying a bottle blindly from favorable reviews. As I found with much of the TF line...waste of money IMO.

    French Lover - Pierre Bourdon/ Frederic Malle
    Eau de Camille - Annick Goutal

    Both impulse buys, both ultimately disappointing. You live and learn, but I doubt I'll never buy on impulse again!
