    Default How much have you spent on fragrance in your lifetime?

    ...and how much is your current collection worth if you were to sell it all today?

    I have probably spent close to $3000 in my lifetime and could probably sell my current collection for roughly $1000.

    If I'm not counting the fragrances (odd one or two every 3/4 months) that i've bought before February (When my fragrance 'journey' began) I've spent £180, on approximately £350 retail value stuff

    I've been buying frags for a little less than a month, and I've got a collection of 9 bottles that I've spent...let's see...about $350 on. That's no good, that means I'm averaging $4200 a year on fragrances!

    I have spent about $4000. Shocking, indeed, since I usually don't buy a lot of luxury products. My clothes are normal. I wear Lee and Wrangler jeans. Polo shirts of Janzens, GQ, and Hazard. Shirts of GQ, and other middle-ranged brands, nothing expensive.

    $300. That's barely anything compared to most people here. Even then, I think 9-10 bottles is way too much for me, especially if SA's at Sephora are giving me generous samples of fragrances I woulda worn 2-3 times anyway.

    I don't wanna know.

    I do know i've spent too much, and that's without even paying full price for the very few niche frags i've had.
    Are you not entertained??? Is this not why you are here??

    I'd say easily between $5,000 and $10,000.

    Ahh Despite my family being comfortable financially, my dad is extremly frugal, but, he has one vice too, watching cricket, he'll fly half way across the world (He is across the world, in Sydney!) just to watch India/England play.

    But, he moans when I think about spending £70 on a fragrance, and says 'other stuff is just as good' and then he gives me lectures about how his first car was only £150 (Which is a load of bollocks, according to my mom) and that I spend that much on jeans. Hypocrite

    But, hats off you to you, more than your parents first house I just beat first car!

    Only about $400 or so. There are a lot of fragrances that I sample and think are nice but very few that I feel compelled to own. Sadly, I already own quite a few that I no longer (or never really did) love. I'd sell them, but I got them cheap enough that it's not worth it, and I like to keep them around for reference as I blend my own.

    Let's see what the statistics says: I own 131 scents and I got about 15 as a present... It means that I spent about... 5.200 EUR/7.800 USD. Principally, I buy two scents monthly. I have to say that my salary is circa 500 EUR/760 USD (the average salary in my country is about 350 EUR/525 USD) and that shows how huge my "sacrifice" is... or how great my love toward scents is... or how idiotic I am...
    However, after all these years of the scent collection, I still believe that it is the most beautiful vice which someone could have.

    I haven't spent so much as to make me feel guilty about enjoying my fragrances.

    So far, fragrances are a source of joy to me. Their cost is worth it. No regrets.

    I've spent around $3,600 on my oud oils alone!
    I would probably have heart failure if i figured out what i've spent on my whole collection. I would rather not know..

    I don't know really, but I think most of my friends and family would say "too much" without hesitation

    I guesstimate that I've spent around $700, mostly during the last year.
