Imagine you have accumulated a rather sizable collection of perfume over the years.
Imagine you have a treasured closet full of gorgeous bottles holding precious fragrant liquids each holding a story, a memory or simply just smell freaking good to you.
So far I think everyone is with me, no need to imagine much at this point, as all of you have a collection of at least two bottles.
Now imagine that you cannot use your collection anymore. No matter the reason, but imagine it is a permanent issue that makes it impossible for you to keep on wearing your perfumes.
What would you do?
Would you sell it? Get rid of it all as to not remind you of things you’d rather forget?
Would you keep it? (And risk letting it go bad?)
Would you sell a few, give away a few and keep a few, no matter what?
Or would you do something else entirely?
As you, dear constant readers, know, I can’t wear the majority of my perfumes anymore because of my asthma which seems to be settled in for good (as far as my doctor is concerned the chances for it to completely recede are slim to non-existent).
So I am faced by a beautifully stocked closet of perfumes that seem to mock me every day. I still wear perfume (take it from me over my dead body!), but it is a select few that I can tolerate in homeopathic doses. The vast majority sits there usused and unloved (yes, unloved, since my subconscious mind seems to want to blame them!).
Help me today! What shall I do with my collection? I would see it as a real shame to see them go to waste unused.
Shall I do a blog sale? Would you be interested?
I have given away some bottles already, but local fumies are quite a rare breed…
What would you do if it were you?
