    Default My collection is rounding into form...

    I really enjoy a lot of what I own.
    Sometimes in the morning, I have a hard time deciding between a few of them.
    Almost to the point where I wish I had fewer choices.
    Buying has been fun (especially on the cheap), but I've really slowed it down, as I've filled out all my gotta try's.

    My top 5 overall are (so far):

    Green Irish Tweed
    Terre d'Hermes Parfum
    Gucci Pour Homme 2003
    Polo Modern Reserve
    Kiton Men

    I've found out that I really enjoy scents that highlight: Fresh greens, violet leaf, suede leather, fresh cut tobacco, pineapple, lemon verbena, sea notes.

    You have a nice collection. It's great that you feel you have filled out your "got to try's".

    This makes me happy to see others enjoying their perfumes as much as I do!

    You have some great stuff there!

    You said you admired Violet leaf, then you gonna have to try Some Narciso Rodriguez for Him, and Tom Ford's Noir both very well made: noir is more powdery but very enjoyable and both frags are tremendous asset to have if you admire the violet leaf in a well blended concoction...

    I took your advice and tried it.
    Bought 2x .84 oz travel sprays (1.7oz) on eBay for $19

    Im not sure what to make of it, it may be oxidized juice from the first spray but this makes me think of "an evening gone wrong".
    You're running in a damp alley in the city, you're running for your life, panic and fear. Danger is in the air.
    It definitely made me anxious smelling it only on paper.

    I may end up selling it off, it was worth a shot, but its just not something I'll wear and enjoy.

    I've really gone out on a limb testing out the last couple of fragrances and it hasnt worked out well.
    Im just not the type to wear a statement, I guess.
    I've sold off a few bottles of DO-NOT-WANT I think I may go in for a bottle of LIDGE and call it a collection.
