    Default Making a list and checking it... Twice?

    So I started out thinking I'll make a list of all the fragrances I liked and loved. Figured it made most sense because it would likely be smaller than those I don't and easier to maintain because of it. However, now I'm wondering if it wouldn't have been best to make a second list of those I hated also. I mean, there's far more of them, so it's hard to remember exactly if I have tried something, especially since I recognize the name of it, whether from ads, samples, or just seeing them discussed here.

    In fact, there's so many that I truly detest that is astounding. And even more that I've tried and found utterly lacking, especially compared to others, and determined as unworthy because of this.

    Just a thought. Really wish I had listed them all with thumbs up or down next to each.

    No time like the present to start keeping two lists, then!

    Can be done on Fragrantica and perhaps even on this site via the star rating.

    I have found listing my "Tried" and "Own" in Wardrobe has brought some measure "Knowing Thyself" "Truth"

    The interesting part could be how these lists evolve and change several months or a year from now. A lot of things I hate initially, I come around on them and love them. POLO being a prime example.

    Two lists sound fine
