    Default Best Thing About Having a Collection.......

    When you wear something you haven't worn in a while and you think "WOW, this is great, I should wear it more!"

    Agree. That is the best thing about having a collection. And also the worst thing about having a large collection.

    ... time permitting, when you read an interesting thread/post concerning something in your collection you can easily check it out and compare/contrast your impressions with those of others. It enhances the hobby/past time aspect and learning a thing or two never gets old.

    There is something for every occasion or mood and you never get bored. Plus, you reach a point where new releases often become less desired because new formulations lack that certain "something" (thanks IFRA) that elevates the scent to the level where it becomes a "must buy".
    Some Favorites
    1. Amouage Epic man
    2. Dior Leather Oud
    3. Perris Monte Carlo Oud Imperial Black
    4. Le Labo Patchouli 24
    5. Amouage Opus VII
    6. Byredo Bullion
    7. Masque Milano Russian Tea


    Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

    The ability to smell something new and decide either "nah, I don't need that, I already have 3 musky white florals and they don't get worn" OR "yes, I love leather-apricot-chypres and I need them ALL."

    Giving away great fragrances to family and friends that they may not have purchased on their own. Having someone go through your collection and finding a signature fragrance for themselves or my personal favorite, having your friends come to your house before they go out because they know you have a fragrance for every occasion

    I smell fantastic and I take a scent journey whenever I feel the desire.

    I think the best thing is never having to worry about it. There's always something to wear.
