    No, not at all. Obsessive-compulsive dissorders are quite normal... aren't they?

    One fragrance for every pair of shoes.

    Well, it's as good as any other scale. I could have gone off on the whole "normal" thing.

    Yes, in the 20-something crowd and I find it commonplace--literally.

    Well if you think about which shirt to wear, and why and when to wear it, then your cologne should be no different. Least that's how I see it.

    Normal is overrated. But I'd imagine the typical male owns no more than 3 or 4.

    For your average Joe, I would think that around 12 would be normal.

    The Well Groomed Gentleman

    Perhaps the poster meant "How many should a well-groomed man own?" At a minimum, using 1 (casual/office-type) fine fragrance. Using 2 (evening/romantic & office/casual) fine fragrances is enough to be in the "well-groomed" category, by MOST people's standards. If you have seasonal weather, then the above replyer's wisdom of using 8 shows an attention to detail found in the most well-groomed gentlemen.

    With the above in mind, I say, whatever works. Experiment. Don't lock yourself into any number. Broaden your horizons.

    as many as you need/want.

    i started out with one, now im on basenotes so...

    personally, i say the AVERAGE guy should have 1-2 (a lighter and heavier one, be it aquatic, woody, spicy, oriental, whatever you prefer) and i think if youre going to have 2, you better make damn sure that those are THE scents for you.

    i think most basenotes are people that, heres one for the psychology people, fixated on the earlier stages of fragrance developement. quite simply basenoters never have been able to find/be content with the fragrances they own, there can always be a better one

    so for the average guy? 1-3

    I think it's pointless trying to formulate a number of fragrances that someone, normal or not normal, should have. I think you should have as many fragrances as you feel like having. You should explore your tastes, discover what you like and what you dislike, and try to stick, maybe, with one fragrance of each type that satisfies or tastes. Maybe this will make you have 5 fragrances, or 10, or maybe even 50 fragrances.
    But i should advise you to always buy something that you like, even that you already have what you think to a satisfying amount. Those days you never know what'll be discontinued ot reformulated in the future. So, if you like something, don't take the risk of waiting to buying it and discovering that it doesn't exist anymore or is not the same as it used to be.

    hmmm... we're not going to count samples right??? I mean, anything less then a large decant shouldnt matter really.
    Or multiple bottles lest something important get discontinued or reformulated while our back is turned???

    I'm safe then.

    I'd say that most men would have 2, or 1 and a body spray. Step up to guys working where a fragrance would be considered de riguer and it'd be 4 to 6.

    I have 5 (not counting duplicates) in regular use plus another 4 that I wouldn't miss but I'll use them till they finish. I don't think its necessarily about quantity sometimes, so much as liking what you have and being able to cover most occasions with them. I mean, how many desert island fragrances threads are about this place... and we all seem to get it back to 5 or so pretty easily. THEN it gets tough.

    Anyone should only own as many as they feel comfortable owning. Whether it be 2 to 200.

    I believe that the word NORMAL is making us all feel guilty to the actual number of bottles we all have accumulated on the way.
    Lets put it this way - we all agree 4-6 is a good round wardrobe!
    So were going through a lot of bottles to find those very 4-6 that we eventually want.

    If we're talking the "average" guy I'd guess one to two, with the second seldom used. For someone who appreciates the sublimest sense there's never an end to the experiences that can be collected in memory & glass.

    Not that it matters, but I'd think a normal guy wouldn't need fragrance. They just need food, shelter, ect... A normal person lacks all that is unnecessary. Just like Normal health would mean lacking any ailment. Nobody is normal when it comes to possessions, because they are unnecessary. We should use the word typical...because that describes relative to some certain standard (i.e. a social standard in a certain community/location).

    ANYWAY, the typical guy probably needs 1-7 colognes. Guys who don't mind fragrance much would have 1-2, where as guys who just like variety (but aren't necessarily fragrance fanatics), could use 1 per day of the week.

    "Normal" I would say 3.

    I am an enthusiast though, I hope to build up to about 30-40, and then narrow it down to 10.

    Indeed. The last thing I aspire to is being a normal man.

    For me, it's about finding a balance between a versatile, varied wardrobe and my own minimalist preferences, which allow me to keep an uncluttered house and mind while still enjoying my hobbies.

    "Normal" is relatively subjective. Personally, the OCD side of me wouldn't feel comfortable with less than 50 (and I can't go on without all 5 of my guitars).
