    Just 3: Polo Green, JPG Le Male, and Gendarme. It's kinda weird that it's those three because they're solidly department store price point fragrances. Amouage Reflection Man I use almost with abandon. Same with Old Spice, The One, and La Nuit De L'Homme. For whatever reason, those 3 get the ''special treatment'' and thus are less used. I think it's because each is emotionally attached to rather special, life changing moments in life.

    I tend to agree with this. I love my Vintage Tabarome, but there's no point in not wearing whenever I want until it's gone. By then I should be onto something else.

    No one gets out alive. I don't want my last words to be "but I still have an ounce of Tabarome."

    I save my bottle of Chanel No. 5 Eau Premier because it was a gift from my students and it's so sentimental to me that I want to keep it because it always makes me smile and think of them. I also save a vintage bottle of my grandma's Chanel No. 5 that she used to keep on her dresser. I only wear it on her birthday every year and when I really really miss her.

    None, currently. I'll even wear my Amouage's to bed if the mood strikes me (and I am on a student's income!). I once calculated out the approximate cost per spray of Lyric Man and it came to a mere 18 cents per spray, and it's a one spray scent for me. 18 cents for 10+ hours of enjoyment is very inexpensive, in my opinion, and so I don't hesitate to enjoy it whenever I'm in the mood for it.

    The only time I'd intentionally save a scent is one that is discontinued and impossible to find. If I can get more, what's to worry about?

    None! I wear my favorites more often, not less often. Fragrances don't generally improve with age.

    I have so many fragrances that I haven't actually finished a bottle in years (and I have backups of my very favorites that were discontinued.)

    When I eventually get down to the bottom of a bottle that I don't plan to replace, I may save a couple of ml. for reference.

    Doing the same with Vetiver Tonka, which I passionately love, but some 140 quid for 100 ml is a bit of money... So, not very liberal when spraying. A friend of mine was literally using drops of the now mithycal Davidoff Relax!

    I usually wait for a little occasion or for the right mood to "open" my most recent expensive or rare purchase, sort of like wine, eh? After that, I don't care. If I love a fragrance so much I have a backup (or should!) that I never have to worry about using it to often.

    I don't have any discontinued or rare fragrances, except Narciso Rodriguez for him MUSC, which isn't rare either but it's a limited edition. The other one is Ambre Precieux vintage, but I think my 4 bottles will last me long enough, especially when I keep buying the newer bottles just not to use the older ones xD. Than that, I don't have something super rare like vintage tabarome, or a vintage that's very expensive and smells much better than the current version, or a really really expensive bottle. If I do, I'd probably wear those little.

    Wearing my vintage perfumes is such a 'push - pull' thing with me. Reason says, it ain't gonna stay good forever so use well and enjoy it. On the other hand, the Other Voice says that the vintage I have is expensive and it'll run out, so save it !
    I get by between the two but I make sure not one drop is wasted.

    Orris by Andy Tauer, because once it's gone I won't find any on e-bay-- like some
    old Carons and Guerlains that with patience (and thick wallet) can be found.

    The exact opposite.
    The fragrances I love, I wear them often and heavily,
    to the point it necessitates buying huge amounts of my favorites.

    I always love your takes on how much you should wear something, you got balls man. Today we live in a society where everything that remotely invades someones "personal space" is offensive and bad mannered.
