    Default What the heck do I do with my Kilian box?

    Because I don't want/need it. I live a pretty minimalist lifestyle and don't really hold onto things I don't use. So, do people actually sell fragrance packaging and whatnot? I've looked around Ebay but have never seen anyone offer up stuff like it. In my case, specifically, I'm talking about the vintage cigar holder-looking box, made of wood and bronze-finished metal. It's nice, I'll admit.

    But I just want to keep the bottle and juice.

    Keep an eye on the "Fragrance Wanted" forum. I've seen folks want a box a time or two in the past.

    I guess it depends on the individual person. In my case, I have purchased fragrances with very luxurious and beautiful packaging - that is almost an art in itself. Nevertheless, I simply dump the boxes. I have no interest or desire in keeping boxes no matter how attractive they are. Only interested in the bottle. As others above have stated, you could always sell it if you choose.

    I sent mine to a fellow Basenoter who wanted one... but I can see it makes a nice sample box. :-)
