The bread box storage makes it difficult to actually reach many of the bottles, as they're lined up in claustrophobic little rows, front to back. My favorite scents - currently L'Eau Rare Matale, Cristalle, Ivoire, and the oxygen-depriving florals like A La Nuit - hang out in front, or even cluster on the shelf above, improperly exposed to light. (But not, I promise, direct sunlight.) Those of least interest - Mitsouko, Philosykos, Sweet Lime & Cedar, and other worthy scents that I should just give away because I seem incapable of appreciating them - migrate to the very back and never see the light. It seems unfair that the least favorite gets the most protection.
Sometimes a favorite gets pushed into the wrong territory and has to be rediscovered when I'm digging deeper for something new. That's how I found Jasmine White Moss. I wore her, and she was lovely, though I don't have anything new to say about her - rather than blooming extra big in the heat, she burned off and ended up as a faint, but nice, veil of green. And now she's hanging out on the open shelf with the other favorites, all of them cringing from the light. I really must tidy up.
