    I'm scared. Where do you store anything from 100-500?Is it like a wine cellar and the secret door opens and you grab the Sex Panther?

    I have 59 different fragrances. I didn't include backups, but did count smaller sizes of parfums and .5 oz perfume oils.
    Truly, it's too much for me. Apparently, I'm not a collector, as it bothers me to see the bottles (even the LEs) that I don't wear. I think my collection is a result of searching for a signature. I've found several I would never want to be without, but the others just snuck up on me. I would really like to have no more than 12 different perfumes, tops.

    Currently have 16 in stock...never really go over 20 at any given time . Don't really see a need to. Can't even imagine how many bottles I have gone through over the years . Hundreds and hundreds . I think I'm going to start saving the bottles .

    i love this hobby...but having over 1000 bottles is pretty f*cked up. LOL.

    149 including about 15 - 20 vintage bottles.
    + roughly 300 decants
    + a huge amount of samples

    The main idea was to create my own little "osmothèque" ...

    I have finally gotten my collection down to the 20 bottle mark and am so proud of myself. I cannot see ever owning more than 25 again. I could see, if I really squeezed myself, getting comfortable with 16 in my collection.

    I thought for sure I only had 11 or 12 bottles (of >= 30 ml), but it turns out I have 18! Eep! I think I've got bottle-creep!

    140+ and counting! But I would say atleast 40 of them are steals from sloan0813, Jock_With_Scents, scentemental and rach2jlc. I would have atleast 3 more if Jock_With_Scents decides to trim his wardrobe by 3 more! lol

    7 today. 8 tomorrow. Probably 9th by next week. Then it's time to call it good for a bit. I wanted to get my bases covered for this upcoming fall/winter, then stick to sampling to decide what I want for next summer.

    If I end up at a mall in a weak moment, I wouldn't be too surprised to walk out with a bottle of Burberry London though.

    62 single fragrances, anywhere between around 70 and, at most, 100 bottles (backups, various sizes, fragrances not listed yet included, but samples, matched scented grooming/cosmetic products etc. excluded).

    Default Re: How many bottles do you own?

    Just had a count up and I have 93

    Not that impressive however, 12 months ago the number was around 20 so in excess of 70 bottles have been bought as a direct result of this website

    And my compulsive nature may also play a part

    Ok sorry I just couldn't help it. Kevin Smith's fans will get it.

    I'm between 20 and 30, just too lazy to check. I think I'll get rid of 2 or 3, and keep on exploring ...

    I narrowed my collection to the 20 I'm extremely fond of, and do own decants of others and have learned to decant from splits on newer or unknown scents before promoting them to FB.

    Another interesting stat. Bottles per month. Would be interested to see everyone's calculation

    Mine: 38 bottles/42 months = 0.9 bottles per month. Hmmm, almost exactly a bottle per month, not bad.

    I'm at 15 bottles right now, but it will probably increase to 18 in a month or two. I'm planning on reintroducing Guerlain Vetiver to my collection, buying a bottle of Bleu de Chanel for my birthday, and adding a mini of a cheapie like I did last winter (in this case, Dana's English Leather - don't laugh).

    Still under my all-time high of 26 bottles, though.
    Top 5 for Fall:
    1) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
    2) New York - Nicolai
    3) Terre d'Hermes
    4) Aventus - Creed
    5)
    Flower of Immortality - By Kilian

    Another note...I apologize if I sound preachy in my posts. Just because 30 bottles is my right size, that does not make it right for all. I'm working on some financial discipline and I'm coaching myself right now.

    Just because I'm downsizing does not mean others should not be upsizing! Party on my fragrant friends!

    Somewhere around 150. All are worn on a regular basis. If I lose interest in a fragrance, it is promptly given away.
