    +1 to Wardrobe, +13 to Samples (including 2 decants, but there's nowhere to list the decants, so to the Samples they go).

    Current wardrobe balance 3 (-6; +9).
    Samples balance: 14 (-1; +15)
    Backups balance: 2
    Acqua Colonia Lime & Nutmeg by 4711 just came in the mail. I know I'm cheating and finding ways to add more fragrances when I should seek for ways to declutter, but I felt that I needed a big bottle of inexpensive, light and cheery cologne to pick me up and make me smile and spray in abandon in the mornings. At least I talked myself out of getting two or three of the line under the excuse that I'm paying for postage anyway. One is enough, dear Alice. Finish this 170 ml bottle first and only then think about adding another light cologne to keep in the fridge.

    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 4 (-6; +10).
    Samples balance: 14 (-1; +15)
    Backups balance: 2

    +47 for the year (46 bottles, 1 decant). The last was a super risky blind buy so we will see how it goes.

    Once I hit 100 bottles or so I will try to hover around there, in the low 100s, for a while.... Probably.

    Between the two, I decided to get the TO. Last time I sampled the Intense version, it reminded me too much of John Varvatos Dark Rebel.

    Edit:
    - 2 to Wardrobe.
    I really couldn't bear seeing several perfumes that I decided to not wear anymore (Assenzio by L'Erbolario, Tiare by L'Erbolario and a 10 ml mini of Blue Silk by Agent Provocateur), so I packed them up and stashed them far and away. I think I'll try to swap them or find them better owners after the closedown ends. They all are good, interesting and quality scents, just not for me. I moved them from "have" to "had" in BN Wardobe section, too.
    I feel a little bit better now, as if I decluttered/purged a bit for real. I want to have only those scents that I do like and do want to wear. I already know what I want to finish when I can and not replenish to make some space (at least in my head) for the ones I truly love, and I'm okay with using up the ones I merely like or wear without a bigger passion, but if I don't want to wear something at all, it must go.
