Thread: your collection

  1. #1

    Default your collection

    are you satisfied overall with your collection?

    and who do you think has the best or most abundant collection in basenotes forums? (who has the most number)

  2. #2

    Default Re: your collection

    also who has the the smallest collection? I have only 3, technically 4 bc I have an eternity mini.

  3. #3

    Default Re: your collection

    I have six (excluding samples). No collector here, just a sniffer Check my wardrobe to see what I've tried so far (although I couldn't care to mention all the fragrances I've tried so far).

    In a word...NO, well maybe.

    I just wish I had become a bit smarter about it sooner so I wouldn't have spent several hundred or so on all those mainstream/designers, many highly regarded here, and put it on some better selections instead.

    My collection numbered 23 at the last count and still need a few more to round it off.

    The thing is if you consider:
    - time of year
    - type of occasion
    - style of dress, etc, etc

    you need loads, and then some more!

    I used to think about 6 was ok. Now I would say about 20 minimum. I think I have one to go.

    I'm not satisfied quite yet with my collection.

    Currently, there's 4 bottles in my collection: Mugler Cologne, A*Men, B*Men, and Guerlain Vetiver.

    I don't have any good woods yet (hopefully, that will change when I get M7), nor do I have Creed MI (one scent that I really want after I tried it). I hope that my collection doesn't reach any more than 10 scents tops for multiple reasons (logistics, freshness, and cost). I want to do the maximum with the minimum.

    Four down, four to go (YSL M7, Creed MI, and two as-yet undecideds)...
    It's really quite pleasant, except for the smell (...)

    I am not satisfied with mine, hence the previous top 5 thread. I have nine, and a ton of samples. I truly enjoy six. Oh, if I could find a refined citrus and something very light and fresh.

    I like AZTEC's collection.

    Right now, I have 57 1.7 or bigger bottles. I also own around 40 1/4 to 1/3 oz decants (almost all of which I've swapped for). Of the 57, I wear about 50 of them at least semi regularly. Of those, 20 are winter/fall fragrances, 18 are summer scents and the remaining 19 are unseasonal. I try not to overload on one season.

    My name is scent, and I'm an addict!

    I currently own about 700 bottles of fragrance.

    Need to work Step 1: I admit that I am powerless over my fragrance addiction and that my life has become unmanageable.

    If only the swap board would open I could sell some fragrances to help pay down my credit card bill.

    Hi all,

    Currenty...I own 40 DIFFERENT bottles of Cologne and 14 bottles of Madini Oils. Now...I did have more but...I swaped MANY and I have finished several fragrances altogether. I am also close to empty on several others. I am also about to swap a TWO more of my 40 fragrances (which drops me down to 38 DIFFERENT fragrances). I have several (but not enough) BACKUPS of SOME of my fravorites such as TABAROME, BANDIT, BODY KOUROS, EAU DES ILES, YOHJI, and LORENZO VILLORESI DILMUM soon to arrive.
    Now...checking my "to buy/wish list"...I would like to own the following but...I would be LUCKY to buy a few:


    Now...I also checked my "INTERESTED IN TRYING LIST"
    and...well...there is at LEAST 20 more I am interest in trying! I am HOPING to hold my collection to NO more than 50 bottles! Truthfully...due to cost...I don't think this will be too much of a problem. If I reach a TOTAL of 45 bottles in the next 12 months...I will be VERY lucky indeed!

    I've got about 33 bottles and about 35 samples. I would like to have more but I do feel pretty comfortable that I can smell good for any occasion.

    Some 40 in all make up my collection, from Lacoste Homme to Hanae Morae, Baldassarini to Ultraviolet, Spark to Kenzoair, BalMan to CerrutiSi, Gucci pour homme to Minotaur, Jungle to BalMain, Faonnable to Rykiel Grey, Rochas Lui to Varvatos, Magnetism to Live Jazz, Emporio Night to Jacomo Rouge, Azzaro Vetiver and Lavender to Versace Man and Couture Jeans, and the list goes on.

    And you know what? After a couple of weeks of usage, I tire and require new and different, no matter how dynamic each is.

    Just me or do you guys have the same short-lived fascination for fragrance, at least until a new one makes an appearance?

    I tend to switch as soon as something newer hits the market, and then go back rarely...

    I probably have about 50 bottles, but some are decants between 1/3 - 1 oz. No doubt that number will grow. Countless samples.

    God bless you guys who only have a few scents; do not aspire to have a massive amount of scents. It takes long enough just to go through one bottle. I haven't done it yet!

    My guess is that I have spent about $1000 on scents this past year (fortunately a good number I got at a discounter or decant or swap). I expect I will spend less but the dollar amount per bottle will go up.
    In rotation: Greenbriar (new), Silver Mountain Water, Dunhill for Men (1934), Acqua di Parma Colonia, Habit Rouge EDC, Ho Hang, B*Men, Agua Brava

    I won`t list a number ( ) but I am very happy with my collection. There are a number of wishlist scents I`d like (the new Hermes and Dior scents sound intriguing) and recently, I lost a couple of bottles in an earthquake (how I miss my Musc Ravageur and Balenciaga for Men) that I`d like to replace. I have WAYYYYYYY too many samples and decants of various sizes, so I leave my small samples in a bowl on my desk at work and encourage folks to dip in and experiment.

    Because there are so many new releases every season, it seems difficult to cap my collection, so I`ve come to accept that my collection is ever-evolving. I`ve also thought about making 15 ml decants of most of my collection, keeping only the decants, and selling the bottles because there is NO WAY I could ever use all that I have!

    Recently at parties in my home, I give small atomizers to my guests and let them choose a scent and decant away. They all go home with a new fragrance and I`ve spread the joy of my addiction!

    I have six though I will have seven when I buy next summer's refill of Eau d'Hadrien.

    I have quite a few samples and I have tried hundreds of perfumes but but very rarely buy any. I don't want more than I can possibly wear!
