What to do with unwanted cologne

I have a bottle of cologne that I do not like, and has just been sitting there for a couple of years. It is open, I do not have the box, and has been sprayed a few times. It's a somewhat high-end cologne (Mont Blanc Individuel) so I'd rather it not just sit around and collect dust.

Other than throwing it away, what is the best way to get rid of it? I've been looking at eBay, and no one is buying this cologne. Are there any good cologne/perfume websites that have a classifieds section? I seem to remember stumbling upon a fragrance site that had a trade section, where member could send each other bottles of unwanted cologne, but I can't seem to recall it.

Basenotes might be a possibility. (Their site has been down for a while because it got hacked. But you should check it out once it's up again.)

basenotes is a total rip off. unless you've had an account with them for over a year you'll have to pay $60 just to post in their marketplace forum. I've got lots of cologne up for trade if you're wanting to get something different. If $ is what you want then eBay would be your next best bet. It may take a lot of failed attempts and constant re posting but eventually someone will bite.

Haha, trying to sell it to someone will be difficult unless you are going to sell it to a buddy. I would never buy an opened bottle of cologne online, no matter how cheap it is.

Like MikeHeath says, just cut your losses and give it to someone close to you. I'm sure your father, brother, or close friend would appreciate it.
