    17 according to my wardrobe, with 8 of them being Creeds. I am currently trying to increase my collection by having atleast ONE fragrance from every house: next up on my list of purchases are Grabazzi, Terre D' Hermes, Fahrenheit and Allure ! (the hermes, Dior and Chanel purchases will be my firsts for these houses! )

    In my "active" collection, about 35. I have sold quite a few lately. There are about a dozen more on my swap list that I'm not currently using.

    In my heart, I'd love to take it down to about 15-20 total. I'm in one of those moods where I want to simplify. I'll keep paring it down. Keep an eye on my sale list!

    My wardrobe (link below) says 40, and there are a couple that are not yet in the 'robe because they are not yet in the directory (e.g. Givenchy Very Irresistible Summer). I am actually happy with the size of my collection, and now just want to improve it by weeding out/using up some of the more generic scents that I no longer reach for as often (if at all). Reading these boards for years has definitely had its impact - those lightweight scents (e.g. Victoria's Secret, CK, etc.) aren't nearly as appealing as they used to be. Not when wearing one of them means I am NOT wearing something as byootiful as Geir, which I've become obsessed with lately.

    Crikey - looking at my post of almost a year ago - I've probably doubled my collection since then.

    I will hardly go below fifty and hardly reach 100 ever. I have no big aims by basenotes standards. The wardrobe counts just below 70, but that includes 15 I may dismiss for good. Some fragrances I will just let phase out, but I always have a wish list between five and ten scents. That will hardly change, I imagine. More important: I really love 90% of my frags, from Antonio Puig to Yves SL, and I know why I do not want to own some top favorites !

    I'm at 70 happily, and don't wish to go more unless something really striking hits me...

    My current selection is about a dozen bottles and around 20 or so samples.

    Most of my bottles are 50ml, with a few 100s and other sizes, and I tear through them at a frightening rate (yes I'm a 20-spray sillage maniac!), so am continually replacing, or buying different ones.

    I use my stuff too quickly to accumulate it.

    Right now I have only:

    Bvlgari PH
    Polo
    Very Sexy for Him
    Burberry

    As soon as I get out of grad school and get a better paying job my collection will grow quickly, though.
