    Including samples, no problem.

    Not including samples, I'm missing I, J, K, Y, and Z. Shockingly, I had Q and X though...

    Not including samples, I'm only missing "K" I think.

    If we include samples then I got "K" covered.

    Statistically speaking, almost twice, judging strictly by the number of distinct fragrance brands, not by the letter they begin with

    Missing Q, U, W, X, And Y. If one includes samples, I'm good. Kind of surprised that U and W aren't covered in my wardrobe; those are fairly common letters.

    I cheated a bit on Z... Z-14.

    U was probably my hardest letter. I actually had to check a fragrance website to see if something caught my attention, since I don't have any Ungaro. Luckily, I remembered Usher. I still have about half a ml in a sample vial LOL.
