    I am at 33, but I should really pare down my collection. Ideally, I should have only the fragrances I absolutely love to wear.

    Usually when this exercise turns up, we start at 1oz bottles.

    Either way, it's all good. Any amount of juice works for me. :-)

    Between 30 to 40, not sure exactly. That seems to be my sweet spot. I have about 8 up for sale right now.

    I currently own 15 bottles in my wardrobe. I smelt them all, last night, and still love them all (equally) to bits. I also have another 3-4 floating around either unwanted or solely for the office. I may raise my wardrobe limit to 20 one day but, for now, I'm pretty content.

    No. I have so many bottles because I make decants.

    If it included samples, decants and minis I'd probably have about 600

    I didn't count decants. I figured anything under 50ml didn't count as a "bottle".

    But, as you say, either way, it's all good!

    Hi all,
    i have 18 bottles...till last month i had been a part-time working student
    but im sure my collection will be enlarged after i find a "real job.":-)

    Well, and in my opinion, i think it is better if a man have 426 fragrance bottles, as Noggs, than if he doesnt
    use a fragrance at all. Im from the Czech Republic and there are lots of Czech men who do not use even a deodorant. I think it is cool if a man likes fragrances, have many of them and first of all uses a fragrance every day.

    Currently have 147 bottles in my collection. I like to periodically offer for sale about one third of my collection on the MarketPlace for sale board - in order to reduce my extravagence down to those items I consider active and that I might use. Also, having room for everything is a consideration. I've sold over 70 bottles to other basenoters this year! Is this hobby/obsession getting out of hand?

    i own about 10 or something like that? haven't counted....i don't want more than 15 bottles ever....mainly because of storage space (NYC apartments don't have alot of that!)

    WHO in the world owns more 500? i'm assuming that's a joke.....or is it?

    Is that representative for active Basenotes posters all over the world??
    Or are these the few who (from the northern heisphere) are not on summer holidays ??
    Between 1 bottle and 500 hundred - what surprises me is how owners are so evenly spread.

    I honestly don't know any more how many I own - roughly 100 plus/minus 20, I guess. (I stopped actualizing my wardrobe, when that went down). I am ashamed of any number beyond 50. Are they really that great to cling to them? Trouble is - I hate anything to do with post and customs offices. On the other hand I can't get me to dump perfumes in the garbage bag either. I just stopped counting the ones I do not care for any longer.

    I'm in the 60-70 bracket at the moment, the reason being is that I am currently selling a few on Ebay which I either don't like that much or I bought cheap with the intention of selling. I am currently weeding out stuff I don't really wear that much or can do without.

    But I also have new stuff in coming and so once I have pared down to the stuff I really like, I expect I will be moving towards the next bracket up with great velocity.

    I think I have about 25-30, counting back-up bottles. I also counted a handful of .5oz bottles that tend to last a long time anyway due to rotation & that I have a pretty light spritzing hand.

    hednic, i really want to know how you store your stock. Im bordering 60 and already having some trouble. a pic would be great!! or a link to a pic you have already posted before I need some good storage ideas. Ive already purchased a mini cooler and almost maxed out my shelf space in the closet. i dont have a basement, and the only place i am allowed to exploit is my room. Thx in advance. anyone who has any ideas, do pls contribute. Im already stressing out trying to make space, i know i sound like im over reacting, but yes im quite desperate.

    I've gone from zero to 16 in less than 2 months (all blind buys). I wish I felt like I could stop sometime soon. Thanks basenotes.

    I own 9 at the moment with 1 on the way. I have at least another 7 or 8 that I have on my "to buy" list that I plan on purchasing in the next couple of months.

    I have a small batch that floats around the 10-12 bottle range. When one is depleted, it will be replaced with the same or possibly another carefully tested selection.........

    Got carried away some time back and, as a result, accumulated over 70 bottles, most of which saw more dust than action...... Not carefully thought out purchases most of them........

    A personal preference obviously, but streamlining was and has been the best course of action...........

    more than 60 less than 100, almost all purchased within the last year..... sometimes I wonder if it's a bit silly, seeing as though at most I'd wear each every 2-3 months (assuming I rotate, which I don't).

    Then I remember that this is a hobby, like any other - there are many facets to the hobby. Of course there is the enjoyment of fragrance and seeking to discover new ones. There is also the 'collectible' aspect of the hobby - seeking out rarities, oddities, new, or strange fragrances for the sake of seeking them out. One can be a completest - collecting everything in a line, or from a house. Some seek out bottles - vintage and/or unique.

    Though I sometimes feel odd that the fragrance I've been looking for and just spent a bundle on is now sitting on a shelf with 50 others (and now, onto the next challenge), it's all part of the fun.

    I just broke 1000 and now have 1001, but I suspect that I started long before most Basenoters. I note that I only buy 3.4 or 4.2 oz. sizes unless only smaller ones are made. I have another 50 of the same ilk in reserve for out of production stuff. I have about a three year rotation to get through them all. I have few other illnesses.
