    Grey Vetiver, Spicebomb and Prada Luna Rossa.

    Already bought some of the Prada as I saw it very cheap recently, may not have repurchased had it not been for the price but I find it quite versatile so I think I would have missed it and regretted not getting it for the price I saw.

    I've used approximately 10% of my Aventus flask, but somehow I feel like I desperately need another bottle because I am close to running out.

    Weird.

    My bottle of Aventus is from 2010 and only about 20ml left which I'd like to hang onto, so this will most likely be my next purchase.

    Other than that, Nasomatto Absinth. But it'll have to be a 'vintage' bottle. Because when i went to Barneys recently and used the tester, its so light and lasted a couple hours before disappearing. Sad

    Grey Vetiver has an EDP that just came out, you may wanna try to look into that too. Haven't tried it yet, but a couple people I spoke to said it's just a stronger version of the EDT which sounds promising.

    Indeed - rare for me, too. The last bottles I finished (and replaced) were Floris Vetiver and Creed Bois du Portugal.

    My only almost-empty bottles right now are three that are very difficult to replace: Gucci pour Homme, Envy for Men, and M7 (vintage).
    For swap/sale: Vintage MPG Santal Noble, vintage Tiffany for Men, 1 Million Absolutely Gold, 1 Million Intense, Bentley Intense, Prada Amber pour Homme DELUXE version, Loewe Pour Homme, Pure Malt 2013, Floris Vetiver, vintage YSL Rive Gauche pour Homme, Dior Homme Intense, M7 gel, Roma (women's), Spicebomb, Obsession, others...

    Isn't it the other way round? The new one is the EDT?

    It’s my older ones, the ones I’ve had a while before I got carried away over the last couple of years and began building a more substantial rotation. Other than the 3 above it’ll be a while before I finish any of my full bottles again.

    No! No new bottles for me! My bank account says no, my wife says no, everybody thinks I'm crazy owning so many bottles of cologne! No new bottles, no decants, no samples, nothing! I'm done for the year, I'm so done!

    I have a bottle of Italian Cypress by Tom Ford that's about 30% full. I use it maybe once a month. So I'm not close. Everything else I own is at least 80% full. I would want to replace that TF IC when it's gone, though. 2017, maybe?

    Any Guerlain in my collection, even if finishing a bottle of this might still be somewhere in the distant future- for some reason, this fragrance house always seems to make me want to repurchase more and more.

    Grey Vetiver is almost the only thing I've ever bought again after finishing a bottle, other then D&G The One back in the day. Most other things, I just move on to something else. Getting close to finishing Woods of Windsor For Men, though, and I'll find that hard to resist for the price.. there's nothing like it for just sitting around the house feeling sophisticated

    I always look at the huge amount of bottles and think I have enough to last 3 lifetimes but then realize that I really only wear about 10 frags and just sometimes spray the others on my arm to smell them.

    Aventus is down to about 25 mL, but I have another one on the way. It should be here today, actually.

    Italian Cypress is the only fragrance I own a back up bottle of. I don't think I'll ever run out at the rate I'm going, which is a good thing because it's one of my favorites.

    That said, I may be replacing my bottle of GIT. It seems to have lost all of it's green notes, and went completely metallic. I don't know if it's the actual fragrance or my nose, so I'll have to order a small sample just to make sure. Sucks since it's my favorite cologne.
