Now I just need to find the time to separate what can go. Lol
    I'm in the process of doing exactly that. After rough sorting I've put 2/3 of my collection up for grabs.

    I’m certain I could easily do the same. I just need to dedicate the time to sort out who’s leaving and who’s staying. Ironically, I’ve only done the opposite over the last month... by purchasing at least 4 fragrances. LOL! Pathetic huh? But only one was new, as the others were backups to stuff that I just can’t live without... like Xerjoff’s Nio. It’s just one of those fragrances that work well with my chemistry and style.

    Not at all pathetic. On the contrary. It makes perfect sense backing up/acquiring fragrances you love. At least that's what I'm aiming towards. Trying to emotionally disconnect from the bottles you must rid of is hard, but very doable, and gives you a relaxed feeling of ease when done. Problem is when the loved ones and backups one wants to acquire come with a steep price-tag LOL!

    Pierre Cardin Pour Monsieur

    This smells a bit like a 70s musk, but there's I guess an orange note that makes it more tolerable to my nose and kind of welcoming. This isn't necessarily something I would wear, but I can definitely see why it was popular in it's day. It's pretty nice. I was actually pleasantly surprised by how much I ended up liking it.

    I don't think you'll see Bally Masculin much anywhere. I chased it down based on a couple of BN raves, and I am not disappointed. If I had to guess (and I do), I'd say Bally paid good money for the formula but didn't account for an adequate promotion/distribution budget. Maybe they just sold it in Bally stores. They even had a shaving kit:

    But I've never seen a Bally fragrance ad. A sole eponymous feminine seems to be the only other fragrance Bally ever issued, and that one is even more obscure.

    I think renting storage space for personal fragrances would be an indication that one has too many. For now, I just need to think about buying a second cabinet.

    Yes indeed! This effort will certainly cost me more than I’d like and I won’t be able to just flip what I have into something I want without taking some sort of hit. BUT, I’ve taken far less of a possible hit due to far Basenotes members who are selling and, of course, the graciousness of close members. To all I say thanks for that. And as we speak, I’ve reached out to someone with stuff for sale and anxiously awaiting a reply! Haha!

    Bought it from an Italian eBay seller. Turns out they dropped their last 100ml bottle, but offered to send two 50ml instead, so it’s all good. I can confirm after it arrives if you need a source.

    Been a lot of talk about them both in the forum of late. I’m more curious about the Oleg Cassini because I love the original Jovan version, but I figured I’d spring for both to get the most out of high international shipping costs.

    Good choice to go along with all the cooking smells today! I'm betting you'll like the cumin and cardamom.

    I like it. Not a big fan of cumin (in perfume) but this one is mild.
    Pasha has a similar vibe but declaration is better.
    I can see why you like it

    Hey, all he did was save my life. I'm the one who had to eat hospital food for a month!

    I'm game for a sync. I have L'Elephant on right now, but would happily wear Declaration for a SOTN to go with Thanksgiving dessert!
