    Default You keep backup bottles of the following fragrances...

    Concerning my collection,I own:

    Two x 50 ml bottles of Trussardi L' Uomo (I used to think that this one was the best masculine ever made.EVER).
    Two x 50 ml bottles os Havana by Aramis (well,that's more obvious).
    Two x 50 ml bottles of M7 Fresh (I trully dislike the original,but this one is another story:sparkling,light,versatile, plus the second bottle was a bargain at about 15 Euros).
    Two x 50 ml bottles of Boss Sport (not only a rarity, but also the best Hugo Boss scent ever made in my opinion).
    Two x 100 ml bottles of Liquid Karl by Karl Lagerfeld (I bought the first just by curiocity and a second one because I thought that it was an extremely rare/expensive item.Of course that's not the case.I do not wear it,neither I intend to sell/swap it).

    What about you?

    The only backup bottle I have is, of all things, Caswell-Massey's Persian Leather. I stocked up on it a year or so ago when it was removed from their catalog and was my signature scent at the time. Then I discovered Basenotes...
    I'm not sure I intend to stock backups unless, as with PL, I'm sure that something I love will be discontinued.

    Not yet, as my collection is new and most bottles are 60-90% filled so far... so no need unless something is going to be discontinued.

    Armand Basi is the only one so far... It was the first scent I really liked when I first got into this fragrance addiction... It was so good (and cheap) that I felt the need to have an extra bottle on had in case it ever got discontinued.... I still enjoy the scent, though I realize that I didn't need an extra bottle of it...

    As of right now, I have full bottles of all the scents that are worth backing up. I wouldn't back up anything that came out in the last few years, so that leaves me with...

    Havana
    Havana Reserva
    Gai Mattiolo Uomo
    Loewe Para Hombre

    Exactly. It's expensive enough to keep buying the scents that I don't have yet. I only buy back up when my current bottle is almost finished, or when the scent is being discontinued and I find it cheap. So far, I have

    Default Re: You keep backup bottles of the following fragrances...

    I only get backups of something if I'm almost finished a bottle, or if it's something rare or very expensive (usually both!) that I wear often, and that I don't have a 100ml of, and I see it pop up at a very good price.

    Therefore the backups I have are all Lutens exclusives or Haute Concentrations since they're expensive, or rare, and come in 50ml bottles:

    Chergui
    Vetiver Oriental
    Chypre Rouge
    Cèdre
    Arabie (I got this because I thought it had been discontinued! In any case my first bottle is running out.)

    I used to have a backup of Fumerie Turque, but I found I wasn't wearing it enough to merit keeping it, and I sold it off. Same with Opium Pour Homme EDP, especially since it's not super hard to find.

    Almost everything else in my collection is 100ml

    I try to keep a back-up bottle of my favorite cheapie (That Man by Revlon) and also the delicious but discontinued Balenciaga pour Homme. (No back-up bottle right now, but I hope to change that soon.)

    JHL is the only back up I have. I am thinking of getting a back up of Dunhill for Men, but I am a slow user of product, and I wonder how long the great Dunhill would last even in the frig.

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."
