    Question I can't find my bottle of:

    With so many other topics that we frequent on a regular basis, it was time for this one.

    I can't find my bottle of: Paloma Picasso Minotaure. I honestly dunno where I put it, I checked every shelf, and I never leave stuff laying around. Wanted to wear this one because I smelled something that reminded me of it. The search continues!

    Edit: Ok it has been found! It will be my Sotd tomorrow, and smelling it now in the air, it's just as I remembered. Fun Fact: this is David Letterman's favorite and signature fragrance. It kind of remind me of Steel Sugar, which I have a bottle coming, mostly because I missed it, and wanna do a side by side, plus I heard Steel Sugar is now discontinued, so I'm sure prices will skyrocket soon. Fwiw, this is not vintage Mino, it's the reform which is very different than vtg.

    I love David Letterman. My mom was in a college class with him.
    When I separated from my exwife, I was without many of my fragrances. We were reunited about a year and a half later.

    Likewise.

    I have a vintage first-release bottle of this one. Love it. I believe it was the only masculine fragrance she ever did. Glad you found your bottle in the end.

    My Maxim's Pour Homme mini. I think I might have given it away.

    I lose bottles fairly often, but the last one to be lost has been found (in the car).

    Glad that you found this fragrance and its bottle. Also luckily so far the current lineup still is both small enough and accessibly stored not to really lose nor have difficult access to any fragrance do really wear and/or know where to find.

    I can’t find an old Guerlain gilded bee bottle for EDC Impériale I was looking for to see if they will refill it at the Guerlain urns. Looked through all the closets and boxes with no luck. Next step: everything out of the closet, start from scratch...

    Couldn't find my bottle of Dune (30ml) for years, then it re-emerged when I moved, wore it again, sold it.

    Burberry London (30ml....) disappeared a few times, re-emerged, sold it.

    Also struggled to find Dior Homme at times but still own that one.

    I'm OK with bottles but samples and decant go missing on the regular, usually to be found weeks later in a bag or drawer. There's a Safran Troublant that I haven't yet found, and a sample of Nuee Bleue that I would dearly like to find again...

    Frequent cases of mangled hand from fishing down the back of sofa - the disappointment at only finding coins and not the coveted sample vial gone MIA is truly painful!

    Bottles of Quorum and Faqat Lil Rijal, which I had placed in a cardboard box in a different room for some reason.

    Most recently "lost" were some bottles of Halston 1-12. I love this fragrance, and after reading a thread that mentioned recent formulations not being great, I went looking for my backups I bought like 9 years ago. I couldn't find them and thought maybe I had given them away, but eventually found them tucked behind other bottles in my fragrance cabinet.
