    There hasn't been a fragrance that made me hungry, however, I feel extremely thirsty every time I wear Bal à Versailles. I think it might be the vetiver.

    You are right, this question is so dependant on parameters. So I rephrase my question:

    How many wearings (average dose) do you get out of a 7,5 mL bottle of pure perfume approximately?
