    At the moment I have backups of:

    Iceberg Twice Homme
    Nicole Farhi Homme
    Acqua di Portofino

    All of the above bought cheap at TK Maxx

    Caron PH
    Caron 3rd Man
    Caron Yatatgan

    Bought reasonably on line from a local supplier.

    I will also be buying back-ups of all four of the Laliques, as well as the rest of the Carons I don't have backed up yet.

    Patou pour Homme - hard to get! I had to pick up an extra when I stumbled onto it.

    CdG Avignon and Kyoto - when the "soon to discontinue" scare was hitting basenotes I had to lay in back up supplies of these two.

    I used to have a hoarding problem, lol. Now, I just get big bottles of everything. I do, however, keep an extra bottle of CK be on the chance that the discontinuation rumors are true.

    I don't suppose this counts, but I own two bottle of Antaeus by Chanel, since the first one got cooked in my car on day [only took about an hour and a half.


    ...Consider that an expensive lesson learned.

    I have a great deal of backup bottles, specially of Égoïste (I literally buy one bottle whenever i see it), but some of these other backup bottles were planned and the others unplanned, sometimes i even forget what i already have. But i prefer it that way: if you have one, you may as well have 4.

    Terracotta Voile d'Ete - have 2 backups, and will probably buy more
    Mille et Une Roses - 1 extra
    Parure - 1 extra

    Thinking of backing up Un Jardin en Méditerranée & Un Jardin sur le Nil, both of which I've just bought - thanks to BN - and adore, but much to my distress keep reading mentions in blogs that these may be discontinued. Can someone who is more familiar with Hermes comment on this rumor?

    I fail to see your logic; nevertheless, I like the idea. I may consider incorporating it into my own frag philosophy.
