    Default What's a Lifetime Supply For You?

    What do you consider a "lifetime" supply. For me it's 3.4oz or larger. Except for Grey Flannel which I wore daily for many years, I've never even finished a 1.7oz size. So, I think that I'm safe pretty much for life anytime I buy a "big" bottle -- 3.4oz or larger. What say you?

    In my reserve stash I have:

    Witness by Jacques Bogart .. 8 X 100 ml
    Iquitos by Alain Delon ......... 4 X 100 ml
    Lapidus PH ....................... 4 X 100 ml
    JHL ................................. 2 X 100 ml
    Ungaro III ........................ 1 X 100 ml

    This is in addition to the 25 bottles I have in my current rotation. I doubt that this is a lifetime supply but who knows, I could get hit by a bus tomorrow.

    At the moment I am in a dilema on if I should bid on this item, its 22 bottles of 75ml Rive Gauche for a bargain price. The question is should I or should not?

    I have noticed that but I know a trick to get around that, I click on the items for sale and than, click completed items and than I can check the items sold and see the feedback.

    But I think I am not going to bid, but it is tempting, its less than £5 per bottle including shipping.

    Kept at room temperature and in the dark I expect that well sealed bottles of fragrance will remain fresh for a decade or more.

    Really? I always thought that they would smell bad after a year or so.

    You don't own anything older than a year? Don't think the bottles in the store - whether at Aedes or Macy's - just rolled out of the factory. Chances are good that your "new" bottle is months or years old before you get it.

    Must be some pretty cheesy juice, or poor storage conditions. Ive tested entire stashes of 10+ yr old juice stored correctly and have seldom hit a bad one, theres no mistaking it when they turn.


    Back to the topic, a lifetime supply (if I were to live for say, 50 more years) would be about (6) 1.7oz bottles of my favorite go to scents. Substantially less for special occasion or parfum strength.
