    Talking Multiple bottles of the same perfume!!!

    We all like some of our fragrances so much that we tend to gather multiple bottles of some of them for reasons of scarcity or pricing etc..These bottles are our prized possessions and we stash them..we love them so much so that the idea of not having them one day haunts us..

    Our greed shows up when we see a bottle somewhere and we just try to snap it, the only hindrance being our limited resources...We ofcourse take pride when we look at them and feel happy seeing these bottles nestled in our wardrobe...

    Well i have 2 or more bottles of each of the following fragrances:

    M7 Fresh
    Witness by Jacques Bogart
    Antaeus
    Havana


    Name yours

    Two 30ml bottles of Nautica Latitude Longitude. They were on sale at 5 euros each, so I grabbed one, liked it and got me another one, seeing that it's discontinued.

    Harry Potter EDT, 2 bottles

    CK be...I have 2 3.4oz bottles...but I'm also working on a 6.7oz bottle of CK one so even though it's all in one bottle I think I have more CKone than CKbe.

    Speaking of big bottles...I also have about half of a bottle 4oz bottle of TM Cologne...and a 95% full 10oz bottle

    I'm hoping to get a second bottle of Bvlgari Black for Christmas. I have half of a 2.5oz bottle @ the moment.

    I own two bottles of Pi EdP - they were only £9 each, so I just couldn't turn down an offer like that!

    I've also got two 50ml bottles of Havana.

    I was thinking of buying a second 50ml bottle of Fumerie Turque but I'm still thinking about it...

    DK Fuel - 3 bottles

    Richard James - 3 bottles

    Aramis Havana - 2 bottles

    Helmut Lang Cuiron - 2 bottles


    All except Richard James are due to their scarcity/discontinuation.

    I never, EVER want to be without ANY of these four.

    CJ...am surprised that you just have 1 bottle of Bvlgari Black..Your love for BB & LL au masculin is so obviously reflected in most of your posts...maybe if BB or LL am were to become scarce some day i bet you would stash a dozen of each :-)

    Oh yeah! I forgot about my Brit stash. I have half of a 3.4oz bottle, a 1oz bottle that I bought from a friend who bought it blind & didn't like it, & another half bottle that's on the way. I bought that as part of a lot of 5 colognes. I plan on giving my dad the full 1oz bottle for Christmas.

    I have backup bottles of Gucci Nobile and Hermès Rocabar.

    My other bottle of Rocabar is very low, and the Nobile is discontinued and hard to find, so I snapped up a bottle I found. It's one my favorite green scents, very elegant and a smooth blend. I want to have some extra. I'm keeping it in the box and away from heat and light.

    I figure that the 'cost' of perfume advertising, packaging, and juice are maybe 1:1:1, and consider 3.4 bottle most economical (thumb rule). Therefore I avoid having two bottles of the same for myself. They or I might not live forever.

    Right now I have two bottles of Trussardi Uomo and 3 bottles of Halston 1-12. The Trussardi is hard to find and Halston 1-12 will soon be harder to find as well since it's been discontinued.

    I need a straitjacket, that is certain. Seriously addicted Hamster. But of some scents I have more bottles because I use the Parfum, EDP and EDT. So, three bottles is not unusual. And Guerlain...it just was sensible to have a stash before they began to change formulas. I am glad I still have the 'old' Shalimar and Jicky.....And a Guerlain never turns in my experience. Well, maybe after fifty years?

    Miyako (Annayake) : limited edition
    Theorema (Fendi): will be discontinued or already is
    Shalimar: wanted a stack of the 'old' formulation
    Jicky: like Shalimar
    Chamade: like Shalimar
    First (Van Cleef & Arpels): uuhmm...several special editions, I suppose...
    Pamplelune (AA Guerlain): Yes! Sale!! Never could resist. Have overdone it a bit, though
    Chergui: already had a bell bottle but when you receive the limited export edition under the Christmas tree....Would you refuse?
    Rahat Loukoum: using that one like water, so: bare necessity
    Vetiver Oriental: same story as with the Chergui
    Angelique Encens (TWO 250 ml. bottles!): will anybody believe SALE?
    Amouage Silver (because it is discontinued)
    Vaniglia, Bourbon & Mandarino di Sicilia: ordered it in Italy and with these shipping costs you better order more bottles
    Eau d'Hadrien: DH uses this as well, so this is just sensible (please, say it is)
    Chanel 5: no comment.

    I'm gonna figure that 1 for material, 1 for labor and one for profit may be the same rule that contractors use to work up an estimate. Of course, since the pyramids, you always get cost overuns (slave dies, nobody shows up after a 3 day weekend). There's always something gnawing at the profit. And if it's a good customer (Egypt) you'll go into the hole and use a lot of creative billing techniques and the next job.

    That is because I am not allowed to look at Camelot, dear poet!
    "But in her web she still delights...". Well, read 'scents' for web, and you see my point.
    BTW, the Lady was 'half sick of shadows" as far as I remember, LOL. Adapting poor Tennyson??

    But I suppose I asked for this with my horrible confession *whispers* I left some names out in order not to look like a complete nutcase (and don't even THINK of quoting Tennyson again )
