    Default Refurbished Wardrobe -- What's Missing?

    We're getting ready to move soon, so I started heavily culling my collection. Only keeping what I wear pretty regularly.

    But I'm a bit of a compulsive collector and can't just ditch the thrill of the hunt.

    What are some obvious gaps, here?

    CdG 2 Man
    CdG Blue Santal
    CdG Blue Encens
    DS&Durga El Cosmico
    Gucci Guilty Absolute
    Caron Yatagan
    Cumming
    Grey Flannel
    Bowling Green
    Fragrances of Ireland Patrick
    L'eau D'Issey Bleue
    L'Occitane Eau Qautre Voleurs

    We're moving from ridiculously hot climate to mostly hot climate, so that's not much of a factor. Thanks!

    I think you are fine the way you are.

    Brilliant thinking, taste-wise as I did leave off the little bit of remaining GV. Might be worth a re-up. Like the Eau Sauvage idea.

    Would add very little, if anything to an already outstanding refurbished wardrobe.

    Yet since vetiver scents were mentioned among recommendations, would also like to add good options for warm climate like Eau de Vetyver, Mugler Cologne, Aadolfo Dominguez Vetiver Hombre, Creed OV, Chopard Noble Vetyver and also a fine barbershop style scent, gentlemanly but also appropriate for warm climates like Rive Gauche, l'Occitane, Sartorial to a possible (re) testing list.

    Talking about Eau Sauvage or GV sent me off on a bit of a citrus hunt. Capucci pH maybe? Something from the AdP line?

    What are some slightly less civilized options in that summer herbal citrus range?

    I'm with Hednic. I've been refurbing my own wardrobe lately and I've had to realize that there ARE going to be gaps in it, because I just don't like everything equally. Is there anything YOU keep find yourself wanting, that you don't have? That's the hole that matters.
