    Default Your Biggest Volume of Scent

    I like stocking up on scents that I like, when they are going ultra cheap. At the moment my biggest volume of scent is Eau de Rochas, where I have three 100ml bottles - 300mls in total.

    My next biggest holdings are about 250 mls of Boss Elements, 230 mls of Lagerfeld Photo, and 230mls of Chrome (in 8 Bottles!). My first three are always located in a handy position for frequent use. Chrome I've stocked up on for forthcoming trips overseas - as it was the only one that never let me down in the freshness stakes during my European vacation last year.

    What's you biggest volumetric scent holding?

    75ml

    Right now I'd rather put every nickel into broadening my collection with new scents instead of buying larger quantities. I was very close to buy a bigger bottle of Guerlain - Vetiver, though.

    EDIT: where the heck did that guy with the green hat come from? It's not St patricks yet! (I know it's not, because i googled!)

    Interesting. I didn't know Mugler Cologne was sold in such a big bottle.
    I could be wrong, but while guys wouldn't mind it, I think some women wouldn't like receiving something that heavy.

    My largest volume is 100 ml. *I try to stick with decants, if possible. *And I deliberately avoid actually buying a bottle until I am positive that I want that fragrance in my life on a permanent basis. *I follow this strategy so that I can accumulate a library of fragrances at a fairly reasonable price. *I am thinking, though, of stockpiling some bottles of discontinued fragrances that I like.

    110ml of tea for two. But I've owned 200ml of Cool Water before the other bottle ran out. I like to buy new stuff before I get more of the same thing....unless it is Tea for Two. I sweat that scent. I think I'll make it my SOTD... ;D

    I am also one who can't wear the same scent for a longer period, while I apply very little.
    So my biggest bottle is 100ml of M7 Fresh, but I guess my 30ml of A*Men will last longer, since one spray is enough....

    I have no duplicate bottles, since I hardly ever run out of anything.

    You may. Maybe "hording" would be a better term than "stocking-up" in this case.

    I also have 2 bottles of JHL (200ml) and about 150ml of Santal Noble - a little more reasonable, eh?

    Excluding the two vats of Kouros and L'Autre down in the cellar...

    Of single scents in high volume, I have

    6 bottles of Jean Patou Pour Homme. Three 3.0 testers and three 2.0 oz bottles for about a total of 15 oz of solid gold.
    10 collected ounces of Tabac Blond

    Those should last me.

    Yes, interesting the varied responses. Some have a big volume of something they like and which is still available, a few have stocked up on discontinued scents, some have stocked up in anticipation of the scent being discontinued, and some just can't resist a bargain.

    I do agree but is it practical to buy a buttload of a certain scent knowing that it has a shelf-life? I mean, I've seen really big bottles of Eau Savage. O_o

    I thought it was a 200ml bottle of Lagerfeld Classic that I didn't pass up when it was going cheap - but I've just checked mine, and it is indeed a 240ml bottle.
