    My beautiful swap package arrived, so +1 to Wardrobe (10 ml mini of Rose Magnetic, so pretty) and +6 to Samples (lots of amazing goodies, I am speechless how wonderful people can be). I traded out samples decanted from my bottles, so no negative changes to my numbers.

    Edit: I also rethought my strategy of where to put big decants, so I tweaked some numbers (+2 to wardrobe and -2 to samples)

    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 +14 (-17; +31).
    Samples balance: +21 (-8; +29)
    Backups balance: +6

    Hey, so you went for Love! Congrats! My girlfriend keeps talking about this one, but it is quite costly for someone who isn't in to fragrances the way us BNers are.

    You were the one who recommended it! I wasn’t too sure at first because the opening is very sweet but after a short time it dries down into a really nice, non teenagery marshmallow scent that was just what I was looking for.

    I got myself Jungle L'Elephant that was in my wishlist for quite a while and a backup of Samsara that wasn't in my wishlist as I'm using the new version anyway and it isn't going anywhere, but the prices for the two were just too good to pass. It's hard to resist a good bargain - it's money spent that seems like money saved.

    +1 to Wardrobe: couldn't resist and got myself a LPRN Black Perfecto (EDP). I had an EDT before and traded it away as it didn't feel right for me, but this one does. Sometimes small differences matter.
