    The opposite applies too.
    Some may replace a part by adding Montana's Parfum D'Homme.

    If you have a collection of more than 30 fragrances... than you don't need anymore!

    I'm sure that most basenoters including myself would disagree with the above statement.

    A good wardrobe needs one carefully selected Chanel, Guerlain, Serge Lutens / Shiseido, etc.) For any additional perfume from the same house the law of diminisihing returns applies. Perfume houses sometimes copy basic patterns of other houses' greatest hits. And they always seem to copy the best of their own creations again and again. Result: if you own X you do not need to also acquire Y and Z even when they get more public echo. In a few cases Z may render X obsolete though, because it's the 'better' variation within the same breed.

    However, If you are a collector of a certain line like leathers, for example, you may actually need them all . I'll never stop collecting the classic citrussy colognes even though one smells like the other, and in spite of the fact that these are the most volatile waters you can waste your money on !!!

    This is going to be contentious...

    If you have Tiffany for Men you don't need Chanel pour Monsieur or Chanel Monsieur Concentree.

    The Tiffany is better than either. (Although oddly, I have all three!)

    If you have CDG 2Man you do not need LeLabo Vetiver ** or LeLabo rose 31, Molecule 01, Gucci PH and Tommy Bahama.
    If you have Yang and Vetiver Extreme by Guerlain you do not need Vetiver Extraordinare Fredric Malle.
    If you have Chanel PE you do not need YSL L'Homme, Burrbery for man, Herrera, Himalaya, D&G PH.
    If you have the dreamer, you do not need Dzing!
    If you have an armani scent you do not need another armani scent...
    You do not need an Hugo fragrance.
    If you have CDG Soda you do not need Happy.
    If you have CK Be you do not need Gendarme.
    If you have Black Aoud you do not need Any other of the Rose Aouds.
    If you have Unforgivable, you do not need, Unforgivable Platinum, MI, SMW, Wall street, Hamptons.
    If you have Pi you do not need vanilla l'artisan.
    Agree with alot, especially the bolded. I see that. Funny stuff.

    If you have Eau de Baux, you really want Ambre Narguile, but don't need it and would be better off spending the money saved on something else

    If you love Tea for Two, you don't need, but will inevitably get Eau du Fier, Un Crime Exotique, Harmatan Noir

    If you have A Taste of Heaven, you don't need Caron Pour un Homme or that lavender shaving cream (Don't get me wrong, I enjoy ATOH)

    If you have Le Boise, you don't need Tumulte

    If you have Jubilation XXV, you don't need Duchaufor's other incensey frags.

    If you have Biehl mb03, you don't need Elternhaus' MoslBuddJewChristHinDao (both by Buxton, mb03 = +chamomile -hemp)

    If you have Fougeres Marine, you don't need Tommy Boy
    If you have Cool Water, you don't need GIT
    If you have XS, you don't need Himalaya
