    Amouage Lyric Man - Many fans of this but soapy, fresh, lime, incense rose smells off putting to me. I like darker roses such as POAL, TF Oud Fleur and the like.

    Zegna Acqua Bergamotto - Wife smashed the bottle. Casualty of her protesting my hobby.

    Ferrari Radiant Bergamot - I love my bergamots and this is just not getting any wear. Gave it to a friend.

    MFK Oud - Smells funny. Blind buy fail. Sucks because I can smell genuine oud in it but its combination of smoke and elemi (?) ruins it for me.

    Amouage Reflection Man - Gross. Ill stick to what Amouage is fantastic at: Powerhouse, dark, oriental.

    ADP Cedro Di Taormina - Will be selling soon. Boring. I have too many cedar/woods citrus scents that does a better job.

    I have a wide range of taste, from freshie to indie-weird btw.

    L'Air du Desert Marocain - doesn't work on my skin, gets way too sweet and cloying

    She runs to my cabinet and does a swipe of the front row if I dont reach her in time so I only have cheapies up front now. That Zegna bottle is fragile than most apparently. She's very good to me, Im the one that should be more reasonable actually lolz.

    I swapped a sample of Histories de Parfum - 1725 Casanova. After testing it out I can say that this is not my type of fragrance.

    Finally sold my bottle of Lalique White.
    eBay offer for $10 coupon on $10+ sale made sense to do it.

    Binned an almost full 100ml bottle of Encre Noir Sport and a half 100ml bottle of Dior Homme Intense. I also binned about 20 or more samples. I may throw out more in coming weeks or move some fragrances to the bathroom and use them as air freshener.
    I'm tired of some fragrances and want to downgrade so i can use the ones i love more often without feeling sorry about the others not getting used.

    Selling off Christian Dior Dior Sauvage EDT 100ml, just losing it’s wow effect for me everyone around me though seems to enjoy it but I’m getting bored with it.
    Fragrance is my favorite thing. So much so that if I leave the house and I don't put any on, I'll turn around and go back home.

    I'd never bin any perfume. If I'm tired enough of it to toss it, I give it away. Seems particularly decadent and wasteful to just trash it XD
    oh look, I have a signature

    I've thrown out exactly one, perfume over the years. It was the most hideous thing by Al Haramain - I would have not given it to my worst enemy. It not only stank to high heaven but, it leaked around the sprayer and the top attached piece, the faux metallic coverings / decorations flaked off - it was a mess. Worst thing I ever purchased from Notino.

    Today I gave away a very swollen one gallon plastic zip-lock bag of about 1,000 mixed men's and unisex samples. Felt good doing it. I don't use samples at all. I still have three more full plastic zip-lock gallon bags and a large tupperware box filled to overflow with samples - all accumulated over many years from vendors with whom I make bottle purchases.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    My samples end up going to coworkers, the full bottles to friends/family.

    Al Haramain has some great scents! This particular one is discontinued so, I doubt you'd run into it and dang, if I can recall its name...
