    Default Your 500ml Wardrobe

    I’ve been thinking about this concept for some time. What would my wardrobe look like if I could only choose a maximum of 500ml of fragrance? Maybe as a way to hone what I enjoy the most and if I was forced to choose what that might look like but then also factoring in how strong the fragrances I own are and how often I wear things or would want to.

    You can choose any fragrances you want and how you allocate amounts, full bottles aren’t necessary, but when all’s said and done the wardrobe total can’t exceed 500ml. (The idea being you can’t purchase more until you’re entire wardrobe is empty.)

    Please share your 500ml wardrobe build. I’ll share mine once a few others have started the ball rolling.

    I think I would do 10 50-ml bottles (but 100-ml bottles of the first five would be ok, too):

    1. Bel Ami
    2. Antaeus
    3. Polo
    4. Jules
    5. Givenchy Gentleman
    6. Moschino Pour Homme
    7. Egoiste
    8. Platinum Egoiste
    9. Patou Pour Homme
    10. Patou Pour Homme Prive

    I'm loving Platinum Egoiste this week.

    I would take my current wardrobe and make decants.

    There are enough I could trim (the clones from my early ignorant days) to make myself 8 ml decants of most of my wardrobe.

    If I could start over, I would do exactly that.

    A lot of wonderful carefully handpicked wardrobes being created here. Keeping this under 10 fragrances is doable but I wouldn’t want to at the moment.

    I get through so much Chanel Pour Monsieur EDT to get satisfactory wearings that I couldn’t justify more space for it, but couldn’t leave it out either.

    I must confess that reading the thread title had me stumped for a few seconds, wondering why on earth anyone would have a total of 500ml of fragrance.

    Then I did a quick calculation of just about a third of my scents... and I am kind of speechless.
