    I haven't bought anything yet - not even samples. But, even more importantly for my resolution: I've been rediscovering what I have. I'd completely forgotten how nice of a scent Play Intense is. The bottle is so awful - so juvenile - but the scent really is quite nice. It's dark but not heavy, and sweet but not cloying. And it's quite nice in the winter.

    Must be nice to be able to afford to get bored with a new BMW 7 series after 6 months and replace it with a new XJ8.

    Rediscovering what you have is KEY. I grew tired of amassing bottles that I hardly ever reach for. That's why I'm down to 23 and I plan to buy only 1 great scent per month, rather than the 4 or 5 mediocre ones i've been buying per month. If I don't wear them, I want them gone. My 30 bottle limit is my critical mass for regular pruning.

    Absolutely - a period of fragrant abstinence can often trigger a renewed appreciation. I made a decision to become reacquainted with a number of my infrequently used scents and have only purchased one full bottle so far this year.

    Been doing good so far, haven't purchased anything other than a 10ml decant in the last 4 months and actually boxed up 5 bottles to give away to some relatives. I am in the market for something new, however, and will be ordering about a dozen samples over the next week. Trying to limit myself to no more than 4 new bottles this year.

    I've only bought one bottle this year, Creed Royal Oud. I'm trying to limit my purchases to only the scents that I absolutely love, which is tough because there are a lot of likes.
    Current Top 10:
    Creed Green Irish Tweed
    Creed Silver Mountain Water
    Creed Royal Oud
    Amouage Jubilation XXV
    Tom Ford Tuscan Leather
    Tom Ford Amber Absolute
    Tom Ford Italian Cypress
    Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan
    Bleu de Chanel
    YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme

    Didn't buy anything yet this month, not because of a resolution but because most if not all recent releases have been uninteresting and crappy so more money saved, which is a good thing!

    I had a vague plan to buy only 4 new bottles this year, that lasted about 3 weeks... so far I have purchased 6 bottles and 2 decants. So much for that plan!
