    This is a public display of neuroticism that is interfering with overall functioning.

    He’s reached the point of needing some help.
    With apologies in advance if in any way off-topic, but since we are sharing film quotes on this thread anyway, this remark reminded me of one quote from "Wall Street II: Money never sleeps" (2010, quotes also visible here: https://www.springfieldspringfield.c...y-never-sleeps), where one of the more important characters, although it becomes clear (though no major spoiler) that he may be one major self absorbed characters and even one of the main villains of the sequel, nevertheless quite poignantly remarks:

    "
    Do you collect?
    No.
    Only the obsessive-compulsive
    and the insecurely egotistical
    feel the need to collect things." (BN contributors naturally excluded)

    For some reason, this reply did remind me of this particular film quote-minus the more dramatic voice of Josh Brolin and the more inquisitive, but also more calming one of Shia LaBeouf in acting this particular scene.
    Did not manage to find this very line on YT, even if there are plenty of clips including of the respective scene but oddly not the actual quote on this online platform.

    Looks more like old stock but either way, nice collection.

    Well, there is that to consider.

    I was struck by how haphazard it was. All those beautiful bottles just thrown into boxes. Sigh. I agree, clutterer-hoarder type "collection".

    That is not a collection, looks more like storage, as most of the bottles are sealed.

    Get that man some help, someone! Looks like someone suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder. What is this guy's story anyway? Did he own a store at one time or other? Is he an online seller? If he doesn't sell online maybe he should and put the money into fixing up the dump he's living in. Or buy a couple of 8' high bookcases and organize them. Having them scattered all over the house like that is really nuts.

    I think you are right. As an aside, I wonder how many are fakes?

    I do agree with some assessments that this is probably someone's hoarding gone out of control, or it was inherited and the new owner was simply overwhelmed. I'd like to think the person who put this collection together had done so with admiration for the fragrances.
    It's more likely someone had a store that went out of business and instead of liquidating his inventory, for whatever reason, took it with him/her instead.

    That's what I thought. It's great to have passions or interests that occupy your mind and keep you out of trouble, but there is a difference between hobby and pathology.
