IMO 10 to 15 is the most you should have, unless you are a very heavy user. I still am hoping that I can use up what I have before it goes stale. That being said...
This topic has been discussed many times before and many respond that they have fragrances over several years or decades old that are still good. Many have dozens of fragrances in their collection or even more than a hundred. Since it's a hobby for many, that's fine for them. It just seems highly improbable that fragrance can stand the test of time for so long (over 5 years I would think). Since I've never done that myself, I'll have to take their word for it.
