    As of today,

    25 bottles
    4 large decants
    (dozens of samples)

    1 cheapie on the way (Set Sail St. Barts $23) and ordered a 5ml decant of Naxos to try in spray form after having used up a dab-vial..
    Like others, have cut way back on my collection, which was over 70 bottles a year and a half ago.

    Oh well, I guess it doesn't have to be -6 by the end of the year, but as long as it's minus-something I'll be content.

    Do you have any specific wardrobe-related goals?
    Just vague plans in my head that not really have changed the last two years. Two years ago I might have failed, the last year I succeeded. The so called plan is to not expand my collection either in samples or bottles. If I end a bottle it is OK to buy a new. But not just the first that pops up in my head, well chosen with good quality. It is a tough goal and I, like you, might underestimate the time and wearings it take to finish something off.

    Yesterday I finished a five ml decant of Eau de Guerlain I've been wearing he heck out lately. Weird timing in the winter, but working indoors the difference is not that huge.

    A five ml decant of L'Homme Ideal Cologne by Guerlain is now done. It was nice! Maybe it is because of my shrinking wardrobe, I'm ending a lot right now...
