    Default Today I Sold/Swapped/Binned

    Hi guys,

    I'm sometimes more interested in what people are getting rid of than what they are buying.

    Tell us what you have disposed of today and the reasons why.

    Cheers,

    Nick

    It was a couple of weeks back but I purchased Crabtree & Evelyns Leather Musk and binned after one wearing. Two words describe the scent, utter crap.lol

    Sold recently:

    - Black Orchid
    - Dior Homme (2012)
    - L'instant De Guerlain Extreme (Dark Rim)

    Lost some love for all of the above and extra money to take with me on my vacation was more than welcomed. The Dior Homme was a regret purchase to begin with hence i think the 2015 version is way better. The other two i just simply don't like them anymore.

    I sell / swap mostly the stuff I bought blind. Some of it I keep some I sell or swap to finance the next blind buy. That was the reason I posted Chanel PM Concentree and Ungaro II for swap.
    Not long ago I binned CK Be: got tired of it.
    Shame that some countries including Australia do not allow to ship fragrances. Limits the sale opportunities to one country only.
    Great post btw.

    Good thread concept and I hope it has some legs going forward. Might encourage me to move some out that I never wear and have been sitting on out of sheer laziness. I could certainly stand to free up some storage space for new acquisitions.

    There's a thread like this over on Fragrantica. I think it's a great idea to have one like it over here on Basenotes! I'll list stuff that I've recently (or so) sold! Look in the parenthesis for a possible explanation as to why I sold it off.

    I'll just start from mid-June or so to current. All sold:

    D&G Light Blue Living Stromboli (Tester. Not that fond of tester packaging nowadays.)
    Creed Orange Spice x2 testers (still have 2 of them)
    Bond No. 9 I Love New York for All (Still have 1.)
    Nautica Voyage (Not a bad smell, kinda cheap, didn't really feel like wearing it.)
    Bond No. 9 Riverside Drive (Got it secondhand, which I'm not into. Smell was okay; made me think of pickles?)
    V&R Antidote (Secondhand, smaller bottle. Decent smell.)
    L'Occitane Immortelle de Corse (Decent smell, got secondhand.)
    Rochas Man (Not a bad smell, but would rather have New Haarlem or something probably.)
    Gucci Guilty Intense Pour Homme (Good opening.)
    Curve for Men
    Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui
    Salvador Dali Pour Homme
    Everlast 1910
    Angel EdP (Not my type of smell.)
    Ho Hang Club (unboxed. Have a boxed 50ml.)
    Carven Homme (I think I sold two, not sure when I sold the other though..)
    Burberry London for Men (Same type of thing as with Carven Homme)
    Azzaro Pour Homme (Sold non-refillable, and kept refillable...?)
    Guerlain Habit Rouge Sport
    Givenchy Play Intense ('vintage')
    A*Men Pure Shot
    CK One
    Montale Aoud & Pine (Still have one.)
    Allure Homme Sport
    Mugler Cologne
    DHS 2012
    Platinum Egoiste
    L'Eau Bleue d'Issey Pour Homme
    Luna Rossa
    Xeryus Rouge
    Fahrenheit (50ml. Don't worry, I still own Fahrenheit. One of my favs. I might have a 200ml, and a 50ml at the moment.)
    Frank No. 2
    Black Orchid EdP
    L'Artisan Parfumeur Fleur de Liane
    Armani Eau d'Aromes
    Montale Red Vetyver (50ml) (Own TdH Parfum. Plus, I got the Montale secondhand and it's a smaller sized bottle.)
    Allure Homme
    Allure Homme Edition Blanche EdTC
    D&G Pour Homme (tester)
    Boucheron Pour Homme EdP
    Obsession for Men
    Millesime Imperiale (Tester. Still have a regular packaging.)
    Hermes Jardin sur le Nil (Not a bad frag. Just didn't 'do it' good enough for me.)
    B*Men 100ml Collector's Edition (Had two. Sold one.)
    D&G The One for Men EdT (Had decanted some for my brother and never quite felt the same about my bottle. Ended up getting a bigger sized EdP - so I sold off the EdT! haha)
    L'Anonyme ou OP-1475-A (Not bad. Not good enough.)
    Opium Pour Homme EdP (Not bad. Just felt like too much of a mushed together fragrance. Just felt like a blurred frag.)
    Vanille Absolument (Meh. Don't really care for the smell.)
    Frapin 1697 (Don't really care for the smell, like with Vanille Absolument.)
    Opus 1870 (I like it, but it just seems more like a pleasant safe frag. Not sure about staying power.)
    Mitsouko EdP (I dunno man.. there's just something about it that I don't really get along with.)
    Versace Pour Homme 200ml
    Versace Man Eau Fraiche 200ml
    Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme
    Guerlain Homme Intense (older 'metal plate' type)
    HdP Olympia 2oz (Smells like motel/hotel bar soap?)

    There's different reasons for me selling stuff off..

    If I got it secondhand, I'm more likely to sell it. I don't like buying from other people, and I maybe never will again in the future (most or all of the secondhand ones I had were probably from buys I did in 2012-2014). Not including samples. I'll gladly take secondhand samples .

    If it's a tester packaging; I'm a sucker for packaging.

    Wanting to lean out my collection with more 'loves' and less 'likes'. Generic dry downs. Ones I'm not that interested in wearing.

    To get money, or if I already own a similar type fragrance that I'd rather have instead - such as Red Vetyver VS TdH Parfum. I'd rather have the Hermes. And the D&G The One for Men. But there can be other reasons included, such as the bottle being used, the size of the bottle, whatever.

    Edit - Wow, that list is maybe longer than I was expecting. Whoops. My future ones will be shorter! Haha.

    Plus, I got a little lazy with reasoning on some of them as to why I sold them. In general, I liked almost every one that I sold. A thing I've been thinking about lately is having more 4/5 star frags, and less 3 or less star frags.

    My 19 year old son is finally getting into wearing something other than Axe... He asked me for a bottle so, we sat down and went through some 30 scents. He finally chose Fahrenheit Parfum... But, I also gifted him the other few that made it to his final, which are:
    Dunhill London, DHI, L 12.12 Blanc, Midnight in Paris and Versace pour Homme Oud Noir.
    He is well happy!

    Today, I was meeting with a banker regarding the Xscentrik business plan. He was incredibly impressed by it - and even moreso when I told him that I wrote it completely by myself. He's been in the Fort Wayne banking business for almost 25 years and looked at hundreds of business plans, which made the compliment even more flattering.

    We have many more meetings in the works in the months ahead. But before the next meeting, I wanted him to get a taste of niche. So I gave him hand-decanted samples of Straight to Heaven, Musk Oud, and L'Humaniste, along with a mostly-unused mini of Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt. The two By Kilians were chosen because of my nose-changing meetup with Kilian himself. L'Humaniste was chosen because of the Frapin brand and how he might not know that they make perfumes. And the Jo Malone was chosen because that brand was one of the things that made niche what it is today.
    It's really quite pleasant, except for the smell (...)

    I swapped a Kobe bottle with about 35mls left.
    I have a full backup 50 ml bottle and a small .25 oz bottle left over from my discovery set so this one was tradable.
    I received a partial 35-40 ml bottle of Vetiver Extraordinaire (which has been on my list for a while)

    I also obtained, via trade, today:
    Bond No 9 Eau De New York

    I gave up:
    full backup bottle of Lidge (I have a backup)
    A full bottle of Al Rehab (I have a backup)
    A full bottle of Grey Flannel (because it smells putrid)

    Most recently sold:

    Mimosa Pour Moi. I like it but I like Essences Insensees better on all counts.

    Sel de Vetiver. Liked it a lot at first but went off it and I have lots of preferred vetivers.

    Mugler Cologne. Liked it when I tested a single spray in the shop, then bought it and found it nose-piercingly synthetic to wear.

    Parfums d'Empire Cuir Ottoman. Got a sample, tried, passed on to an older gentlemen. I'd have to be a little older to appreciate the scent. At least I know TF Tuscan Leather will be my go to Leather Frag.

    Recently sold off Creed Aventus, MI and C&S No. 88

    That's right - no more Creeds for me, except for GIT which both I and my wife loves. Didn't wear MI much and Aventus will soon be replaced by something similar.

    As for C&S No. 88, although I like it, I prefer Egoiste as a rose-woody scent, of which I now have 2 vintage bottles.

    Soon I will be finishing my 3rd tin can bottle of YSL Rive Gauche PH.

    I've only sold one bottle....Aramis Havana. I liked it but it smelled like other fragrances I own. I saw it on another members "want" list so I offered it up.

    I did swap DHI for Penhaligons Sartorial recently.

    I don't have enough posts nor have I been a member long enough to create a For Sale, Swap, or Wanted thread .

    Of the fragrances I own, I would like to swap Ferragamo F Black. It was a bad blind buy based on YouTube hype, but I only have abt 20mls left. Sometimes I'll layer with a heavy dose of La Nuit.

    Haha, there's more than one reason for me selling it.

    1. The sprayer got messed up, I really don't know how, as I've hardly even used the frag.
    2. Talk about the egg smell from it.
    3. I've been selling off a lot of frags lately, and I have AdG and AdG Profumo. if one or two has to go, then probably Essenza first (aside from bottle size), then regular AdG.

    That said, if the sprayer wasn't messed up, I'd most likely not have just tried to sell it! Oh well.

    No plans to repurchase.
