    Default What's Your Limit for the $ You'd Spend

    on 1 bottle? Let's say 50ml so the numbers will be relative.

    I guess I'd spend $300 tops.

    really depends on, when searching for niche, or just a designer.. though my designer limits are like 60 dollars (around 45-50 euros..) for any perfume.. wether 50 (1.7 oz).. 75 (2.4 oz) or 100 (3.4 oz) ml.

    US$ 50 for a 100ml bottle. Yes, I'm stingy for this. He he he.

    $350-400 if it's a really good scent.

    it really depends.
    Luxury, designer and selective scents - about 150-200 euro. But I`m going to slow down and cut the limits.

    Vintage and discontinued perfumes is just another story - I shelled out about 500-600 bucks per bottle. It was Djedi Guerlain 1996, by the way. And it was real bargain for one of that limited edition bottles.

    I'm only willing to pay up to approx 90 US cents per ml. My most expensive perfume purchase so far has been Narciso Rodriguez for Her, 100 ml, at approximately US$90.

    No niche for me, ever.

    The 150 euros per 50ml bottle for the Tom Ford Priavate collection is a limit I do not dare go close. I even avoid testing them for fear of actually liking any of them. I tried only Oud Wood but Oud by Le Labo which I already ordered is better I think.

    My limit used to be no paying over $200 for one bottle, but Amouage Homage Attar is so beautiful that I probobly going to cough up the $350 for the 12ml bottle sometime in the near future.

    I tend to prefer 100/125ml bottles if available. Hence, I don't own very many 50ml bottles. The most I have spent on a 50ml bottle is $200. The most I have spent on one bottle is $600, but that was a humungous 16oz, and I split it with a friend.

    I agree...Amouage Homage is just awesome....The dipstick in the empty vial that I received from a friendly basenoter just had some juice sticking to it and that just gave me one chance to wear it and decide.....I was blown away....What a pity that I missed out on grabbing a bottle of Homage when 'moreda' was selling a few bottles for US$225.....

    If I cannot find what I want for under $25 USD on ebay, I do not need it that badly.
    Mind you, I am the girl who spent $1300 regularly on Guerlain limited editions, that was before they started selling juice I would not use to fumigate with.
    I think most things on the market today do not merit my money, let alone the astronomical amounts they want. Most of the scents I have smelled recently I would not have spent more than $15 for, yet I am shocked when the price is $140 or more.
    Makes me remember the days, 10 -15 years ago, when Guerlain was releasing such beautiful "specials" such as : Guet-Appens, Cherry Blossom, Philtre d'Amour, etc... which were all very reasonably priced, usually $40 -$100. Those days are over.

    The most I paid was $520 for a 60 ml bottle of Guerlain Quand Vient la Pluie EDP, and I asked for a 30ml parfum tester with it as well.
