I never feel like throwing away the perfume bottles after they get over. So I have been keeping the bottles since last 2.5 years (approx)

This is the pic of all my perfumes in that last 2.5 years or so and today, I picked up the Gucci by Gucci. Next perfume will most likely be Trussardi.

Which Trussardi, the 2011 Uomo?
I haven't even tried most of the ones in your pic, but I have the Burberry which I love, and the 2011 edition Trussardi Uomo which I love even more. Have only sampled the Gucci, and yes , I love it too, shortlisted among a few more [ Armani Mania , Armani Code , Burberry London , Azzaro Decibel , RL Polo Black ] for future purchase when I deplete my existing stock. Really like the Gucci's unique signature and longevity. Italians, they don't make only gorgeous wheels and great food !

Most reviewers don't really like the Trussardi much, they say it's lost the charm of the original. I have never smelt the original from the 1970s/80s/90s , my only complaint being this doesn't last very long.

I frankly don't remember which model of Trussardi but its in a black opaque bottle. Irrespective of the brand, I think majority of them are made in france. DKNY Men is one of my favorites.

This is the one I have and in my perhaps non-connoisseur opinion, smells divine.

This is exactly the one I was talking about and the one next in line for me. Its awesome. But I might also check out the broader collection at Mehak perfumes which is on Richmond road in Bangalore. I had visited them long time back and they had awesome collection of varied brands.

My current collection, I will repeat these bottles as and when they go empty on me;
1. Mont Blanc 'Emblem'
2. Yves Saint Laurent 'La Nuit De L'Homme' (Eau De Toilette)
3. Armani (Eau Pour Homme)
4. Pacco Rabanne 'Invictus' (Eau De Toilette)
5. Yves Saint Laurent 'Body Kouros' (Eau De Toilette)
6. Bvlgari 'Aqua' (Pour Homme)
7. Hugo Boss 'Boss Orange' (Eau De Toilette)
8. Mont Blanc 'Homme Exceptionnel' (Eau De Toilette)
9. Paco Rabanne 'Ultraviolet Man ' (Eau De Toilette)

Frangrances I discontinued due to my growing dislike for them;
1. Givenchy 'Gentleman' (too very sweet and musky on the nose in the beginning)
2. Hugo Boss 'Dark Blue' (no presence and dies out fast on my skin)
3. Narciso Rodriguez 'For Him' (too very dry appeal start to finish)

Looking forward to buy shortly;
1. Jean Paul Gaultier 'Le Male'
2. Thierry Mugler 'A*Men Pure Malt'
3. Chanel 'Bleu De Chanel'

Today, picked up one of the all time best sellers - 'Aqua di Gio' by Giorgio Armani. My Gucci isn't over yet; still went ahead and splurged on the classic fragrance. Although I am not a big fan of aqua frangrances, I was kinda okay with ADG and skipped Trussardi which I had planned last year.
Next one ought to be CH for men by Carolina Herrera, or the Dolce & Gabanna .

Rudra Sir, What you have picked up is a classic and popular. Many feel that this perfume must be inducted into the hall of fame for greatest perfumes of all time. Keep the bottle always.
