    I'm down to 143 from around 154 at the beginning of the year, so it's been a progress!

    What would be your ideal collection size? I'm glad I never allowed my collection to reach that size.

    I... I think I'll add my Alaia bodycream I got as a gift as an item in my fragrance Wardrobe, so +1 to my wardrobe.

    It's a body cream and not a bottle of EDP or EDT, but I believe I should log this as a fragrance everytime I use it, because it probably projects more than some of my EDPs or EDTs and everytime I wear it either alone or with another fragrance I feel like I'm wearing a fragrance or layering two. I guess in this case I can add it as a fragrance in my wardrobe, because it behaves like one anyway. And it's a full size item, so not a sample, too. It's not helping make my wardrobe smaller, but I think it's only fair. And I'll probably use it up through the course of the year anyway.

    I started 2020 with:
    Wardrobe 37 (including minis and travel sprays)
    Samples 11
    Backups 2 (+4 minis)
    My goal this year is -2 in wardrobe and +2/+5 or something along the lines in backups. I have no goals for samples.

    Current wardrobe balance 9 (-11; +20).
    Samples balance: 13 (-4; +17)
    Backups balance: 2

    I'd like to reduce to 125 or less by the end of the year! In the long term less than 100.

    That's a much more manageable size. Will you consider backups of your most favorites?

    Another bottle is on its way, which will put me at +4 for the year in total. Not a bad pace.

    I will aim to finish my old bottle of Une Fleur de cassie, as well, only got like 5ml left, I think it's great for summer. Then maybe only buy a new one next year.
    Not have anything planned beyond this. So +3 currently
    Ok so +4 now in total. Bought 50ml Papyrus de ciane.

    Welcome to BN! That's about the path I took to find this site. Careful - your wallet might be hurting before long.

    Thanks a lot guys! My wallet already suffered a great deal

    But, like many of us I suppose, I also had/have other hobbies (in my case: former mountainbiker and current synthesizer freak) and in my case they are quite/even more expensive^^ — but I didnt spend a lot of money on them recently, hahaha!

    Not particularly, unless they are most favourites and are at risk of getting discontinued.

    Thanks guys, really appreciate this community! The Moschino actually arrived an hour ago. Put a tiny bit on a strip first and the whole room smells of juicy, elegant roses. First impression is positive

    I’ve bought 12 bottles this year and sold/swapped 5, so overall I’m +7. Collection currently sits at 25, and I don’t want to be over 30 at the end of the year.
