    I have 10 bottles and a lot of samples.

    My family doesn't understand why I'm having this hobby, not to say that they find it weird.
    It's costing me a big ammount of money. (samples are free?? yeah right)
    Although it costs me a lot of money, I'm not telling anyone I have this hobby (some kind of embarassment?).
    Some people accused me of being gay.
    And currently my taste is changing towards the more sweet and feminine fragrances.

    To make things even worse, the forum added under my name that I am a junkie!!! LOL
    Help!!!

    I totally understand JBL. My wife thinks I'm crazy. She doesn't understand my hobby at all, "How many bottles of cologne do you need anyway?"

    I have a wardrobe of approximately 50 frags. Only 18 of them are full bottles though. The rest are decants and samples. I'll probably try to keep the full bottles to 20 or less. Love my decants though.

    I can completely relate. The family thinking it's strange, not considering it a hobby or even a proper interest, and jokingly being called gay. Kinda annoying, but what can you do?

    I have about 20 proper bottles with a handful of samples. No end in sight, and I like it that way

    Well, if there's one thing I've learned: whatever round number you think is a good limit, there's always another, larger round number just beyond it.

    I have a small collection compared to most Basenoters; 12 & increasing. I'm lucky no one thinks I'm cracey because i have more than a couple of bottels, they see it as ome of my many hobbies. I never do anything by halves. I have a cluttered house to prove it.

    Why is it seen as strange, if a man has more than a hand full of bottles of cologne while having more than a dozen bags or shoes for woman is seen as normal? I will never understand the contradictions that exist across the genders!

    I have around 35 full bottles. About 10 of those are up for sale. My wife would not care if I had 100, which is a very dangerous thing. 60 has been my high water mark, about three years ago.

    I just tell people that I have "a lot." So that's good enough for me. I have a lot.

    'bout 20-something...anyone who has actually seen my collection says i need help, sarcastically of course, but every joke has some truth :P "how many bottles do you need?!"

    simple fact is half my collection is my old, teenager stuff from when i was a noobie, some is that transition stage stuff (the cheaper designer frags)/special occasion ones (Varvatos is impossible to wear non-formally to me), and the rest is wear all the time and carefully picked

    35 scents including 20 full bottles, 6 miniatures and the rest is decants and vials

    116 full bottles, 14 minis, a couple hundred samples and decants.
