I only have these pics of my collection.
They were taken i August 2013.

I have since then bought 40 niche fragrances and 10 designer fragrances and sold 10 frags. I'm currently at 325 unique full bottle (50 ml - 200 ml) fragrances and have maybe 30-40 backup bottles I have at my GF's condo.

Would be interesting to see what you gents pack in your fragrance collections.

I have not pictured my after shaves though - I own circa 15 after shaves, but try not to have anything too strong that will clash with my fragrance du jour Smile

Some are still hidden and not including samples.

Cold weather line up is on the shelves and the summer line up is chilling in the wine cellar.

I'm sorry, but I have to tell you 3 things:

First of all, I don't know you, but I hate you. You have a bottle of YSL M7. Biggrin

Second, how do you like Montale's Black Aoud?

Finally, do you feel that keeping the fragrances in the fridge helps to retain the scent? I've heard arguments both ways, but finally decided against it.

All jokes aside, that is an impressive collection, you have some of my favorite fragrances there, and others I wish I had! Wink

The Black Oud is awesome, a dark rose with some incense plus sillage plus lasts a long time. If you like dark rose, oud and incense I recommend it highly.

When my frags are out of season I store in a wine fridge so it is not that cold. The main reason is to just keep them out of light.... And out of sight of my girl friend. I usually hide about 1/3 of the ones on the shelf in a drawer.

The M7 was a lucky find I used to love but now it is a little too sweet for me.

Thanks for the info, I've ordered a sample and hope to try it soon. Smile

If you decide to sell it, please let me know. I've been searching for one for some time now.

There's not a lot left of it - I sold off quite a few bottles to release capital for shaving stuff.

Decant and sample-wise, I'm down to a few bits of Serge Lutens, Frederic Malle and L'Artisan Parfumeur.

My modest collection below with decants acquired from Basenotes. I've learned after much trial and error to sample and purchase fragrances that are highly recommended, they're usually right Wink

Amouage apparently fares a lot better in the West than its native land Smile just a thought..

Amouage has stopped the production of their entire line of attars to comply with IFRA regulations. They've shifted their focus towards western perfumery. Out of their 20+ attars, I highly recommend their Tribute and Homage attars while they can still be found. Al Andalus, Ayoon al Maha and Badr al Badour are also excellent however may be harder to source. Once they're gone, they're gone Angel

Wonderful fragrance collections gentlemen, I'm quite envious (which doesn't usually happen for me on a shaving forum)... Biggrin

That's the thing. In the Middle East, aside from the Gulf countries, you smell that stuff you start running.. There's a stigma towards scents of these nature, but seemingly to Western noses it's 'exotic' and desired. Makes sense Smile just saying

Have you tried any of the Amouage attars? There may be some you may like such as Tribute, Homage or Taifi Rose. Keep an open mind.
