    Haha, might have a good cloud going around for you a while!

    I currently have 11 Kouros bottles, so this'll be 12 by the time it arrives if I haven't sold off any of my other ones. Kouros is my fav frag of all time. I... went overboard with hoarding it, but then again if I see a deal for it, I kind of can't help myself. lol.

    Lol. I totally understand that. I never talk about backup bottles in my collection but I for sure have some. BTW, do you also collect the flankers? Sorry if the information is in your BN wardrobe. I havenít looked. I have Fraicheur, Eau de Sport, Tattoo, díEte 2002, Body and Silver. My favorite changes but Iíll say that Iíve been Tattoo as evening wear very much over the last couple months.

    Yes...Epocha is the first release.

    Space is a concern for me with the size and variety of my collection, plus the fact I have a condo and not a palatial manor with a vault dedicated to several lifetimes worth of fragrance storage, so I tend to keep most backups to 300-400ml or about three to four 3.4oz-2.5oz (double if 1.7oz or 50ml). I don't forsee using more than that of any one fragrance before civilization unravels and I'm looted by roaming war bands or climate change wipes out all life on earth.

    Trying to get more into the user mindset instead of collector mindset. I've done a decent job so far. Mainly keeping things I actually love and enjoy myself. Wardrobe may be drastically different than it was a few years ago.

    But at the moment, no I don't have any Kouros flankers. I did have Eau de Sport and Fraicheur. Kind of regret selling the Fraicheur.

    Oh, I had Cologne Sport as well.

    Oh, Kouros is an outlier as far as backup bottles - not the norm! I'd like to limit other backups to just 1, possibly 2. Kouros is my fav frag, so I pretty much hoard it whenever I see something I gotta have.

    Space is also a concern, and a physical limitation - as I keep my stuff in a specific container. Bought another container before, but it didn't quite feel right, so I got rid of it (I let her have it, so she stores her papers and such in it now, haha). It somewhat keeps the impulse buying and such in check.

    I believe RoRo mentioned 1994 while Bavard recently stated 1995, he also stated 1997 a bit earlier.

    The New York bottles will make the dating difficult since there's a different batch code system.

    My 100ml bottle 'Paris' only is from November 1993. I bought it BNIB sealed, those are such a treat to have.

    Ah, okay. I should get my nose on No. 5 more, see if my opinion of it has changed - and the flankers.. heck.. feminine marketed fragrances in general. I'm really out of the loop on them unfortunately. :/

    I actually didn't see Pour Monsieur when I visited the Chanel Boutique just recently. No Egoiste or Antaeus either.

    I applaud your efforts. The user mindset is better overall for budgeting. The collector budget has no ceiling and can be dangerous. I actually recently looked at my collection and thinking that I really need to cull the herd down to owning just what I consider an 8/10 or better. There honestly is a lot that I enjoy smelling but never wear and donít know that I will anymore. Some folks might faint if they knew some of the items that sit untouched in my wardrobe.

    Yeah, collection was over ~3x as big in the past - but I've learned and changed my ways a good bit. Trying to keep it more to loves, kind of ignoring 'compliment getters' and dumb reaches that don't really give me satisfaction. Ideally it'd just be stuff I truly love - that 8/10 is a good idea!

    Pray tell of the untold goodies you have!

    My outlier is Avon (of course) but it happened by accident. Diddy knows the story. $1 a bottle for deep vintages. Filled 3 backpacks.

    I understand totally about the dumb reaches and all that. And 8/10 and above is my love term goal really. If my budget were actually higher and I had a cellar, Iíd likely curate a pretty Hednic-like (respectfully) collection. A museum essentially.

    Every now and then Iíll slip thoughts on goodies across PM, and, even more rarely, in open on threads viewable to the public. A lot of what I have are the usual suspects for vintage lovers. Stuff that I got at really good prices or through the graciousness of others. But, there are a few goodies buried within the mix that people may not expect. My 8/10ís arenít always tethered to high prices. But my unicorns are frustratingly accurately called unicorns, as in good luck finding them or anything about them... which is why I donít mention them aloud for fear the one bottle left find it to unappreciative curious hands! Lol. So instead I say things easier to find, but that are still outstanding, like Bel Ami.

    Let me tell you all right now, in case ya donít know - if you want to find an Avon right for you, ZC is your hookup. Thereís a lot in the Avon collection thatís ok but wonít blow the doors off the competition. Then youíll come across something unexpected and ahead of its time like BOOM where did that come from! And itíll cost you the price of a McDonaldís hot apple pie.

    Avon is perfect for my needs, since I save the big bucks for my Guerlain fix. I’m not “done” yet.
    I'm gonna run riot on Guerlain one day and scoop up bottles of VdN, l'hB, AL'O, and the classic EdCs like Imperiale, but not yet.

    I did buy a mini of Roger & Gallet Santal. Nice soapy/floral with a light sandalwood touch.

    Which bottle style did you wind up buying, LJ?

    Had food poisoning over the weekend and this is the first day I've felt safe exposing myself to a heavier scent without being at risk of further vomiting.
    Ouch. No fun.

    I already had the bottle and misposted in to the bought today thread! But it's the frosted cone/cylinder bottle. Cool looking thing.

    Sticker isn't on bottle, but I'm kinda hoping it's inside of the bag. I'll check after it arrives, .





    Haha wow, it arrived today and I actually did go and look inside the bag...

    BOOM!



    It actually was in the bag!! Woo

    Awesome! Congrats on that. Iíll be curious to read your thoughts on how it smells versus other distributions.

    I smelled it from the bottle, but haven't applied it yet. Smelled good to me! I might do a kind of solo wearing first, and then another time mix it up with adding my Sanofi type.

    That reads like a good plan to me.

    Inspired by a local swamp monster....

    Prince de Galles Sport

    Preliminary impressions only: Crispy! Super buoyant, almost fizzy. This is one fine vetiver, maybe just a smidge sweeter than I usually like my vetivers, but that is balanced with some crunchy nutmeg. No soap in sight.

    I see Cuney has been been wearing this one too. I'll take it for a full shakedown cruise this weekend.




    Between this and the half-case of Florida Water, I've been on a bit of a cheapie binge. But at least I'll be able to douse myself lavishly in the summer heat without a twinge of conscience.

    Never heard of it. Do posts your thoughts post cruise.

    As for me, a friend mentioned that she used to wear this but could not find it anywhere. She thinks it has been discontinued. Not sure. Anywhoo, I was able to snag a couple and I must say they are really nice but smell like reformulated versions.
    Any info on these Houbigants.

    I know squat about Houbigant, but I'll bet Grayspoole has the goods. She doesn't check in here much, you might want to PM her.

    Pretty bottles, though.
