Only one: Shalimar Extrait.
One for me. Burberry Touch. The big bottle, too.
I feel like Caron PuH will be the next to go top to bottom.
Only one: Shalimar Extrait.
Much too many to count
None in the last couple of years......
Want to trade - Tom Ford Extreme for Windsor, Amber Absolute, Aventus x02....
CHEAP CREED SPLITS
Millesime Imperial, Original Santal, Green Irish Tweed
Himalaya, Aventus, Tabarome
plus Amouage Honour & Fate Man
Probably around 17 or 18 finished. I used to only keep one bottle at any one time so would go through them very quickly. I only started collecting properly in November last year. I'm now up to around 30 bottles in my collection.
Don't think I'll be finishing anything for a while....
Molton Brown's Cool and Fahrenheit are the last two I finished off.
Only one that I can remember: Givenchy Gentleman, some 20 years ago.
Quite some bottles (~10) in the past year or so.
Zero so far.
I've finished many bottles of Egoiste and Antaeus over the years.
Those days are over
Finished off HM by dropping it on a barbell. Else none yet.
One, back when I was a teenager, lol!
Kurt smells like Teen Spirit
A lot from the uneducated days:
Versace Blue Jeans
Jean Paul Gaultier
Paco Rabanne Ultraviolet
Paco Rabanne 1 Million
DKNY for Him
D&G The One
Dior Homme Intense
Dior Hypnotic Poison
Creed Virgin Island Water
Creed Green Irish Tweed
YSL La Nuit de l'homme
Haha my tastse have improved somewhat.
I do find it harder to get through a bottle now though as my collection grows.
Probably about 10 in my lifetime but none in the past 3 years or so. The problem with me is that I have to finish it. I won't throw it away no matter how old or how much I do not like it anymore.
Original Polo, Cool Water bought when it was first released, and Giorgio Red for Men (also bought when it was released). The only one I replaced with another bottle was the Polo. Edit: Oh yeah, there are a couple more recent ones that I forgot... Bellagio for Men and Floris Eau de Santal (both also replaced).

About 9 or 10 when I was teenager (only brazilian colognes, from O Boticário).
Now its almost impossible.
Actually, Im finishing a bottle of Cool Water, but I bought it used (here at basenotes). 40ml with about 50% only.
So I think it doesnt count.
Too many to count.
5 all together
last year I've managed to destroy one;-) YvesSaintlaurent - Live Jazz
2 bottles went to the Toilet because I found them mediocre fragrances:
- Calvin Klein - Escape + Calvin Klein Contradiction
Next candidate to the toilet - Daviddof Adventure
None, I can't imagine what that's like
None since the mid-90s!
Six in the last year. Sous le Vent , Granville, L'Heure Fouguese, Cologne du Parfumeur, du Coq & Imperiale. These are the ones I tend to wear most, so it figures I guess.
3- Abercrombie Fierce, Bulgari BLU, and Happy for Men. Not gonna lie, a couple of those spritzes were dedicated to making fire balls.
I don't know.
Surprisingly, a bottle of Carven Vetiver (which I would also spritz on OH) and a bottle of Florame Vetiver (same deal concerning OH). I haven't finished any that I don't share. Clearly it takes Two users to get through a bottle in this household
I have more but dont remember now
Literally hundreds. 15 or so in the last year
Polo Double Black
and my Cool Water is almost finished.

If i dont lik e a fragrance I dont have the heart to throw it away thats why I rarely blind buy
and most recently, a bottle of L'Homme Gingembre.
Only a few, and those were small bottles; 50mls or less.

Rive Gauche - maybe 1/2 a dozen

Christalle edt - 3

What an odd set of facts to remember. Now, the numbers of bottles sitting there that haven't been finished............
im close to finishing an other
ln my lifetime, around thirty. And l currently have three or four that l'm close to finishing. l like making room for new & better things!
"What is this secret connection between the soul, and sea, clouds and perfumes? The soul itself appears to be sea, cloud and perfume..." - from Zorba the Greek by Nikos Kazantzakis.
will report back in 2032
The last bottle I actually emptied was back in the ealy 1990's I think.....
A Scent Rescuer
Every great perfume deserves a good home
I don't remember when was the last time I finished a bottle of perfume, but in my youth I went through several: Chanel No. 5 (maybe three times), Eau de Patou (four bottles), Cristalle EdP, Calandre, Eau de Givenchy, Lauren (the original red cube), and several others that I don't remember. That must have been in the 80s
Don't know exactly, maybe around 30. I don't get through as many now I have a bigger selection and tones of samples to get through.

I have lost count, but there have been few indeed.
Green Irish Tweed
Diesel Pus Plus
Armani Black Code
All I can remember off of the top of my head right now. I don't finish bottles as quickly anymore since my collection has grown so much.
None. Some I've had more than 20 years. I try to buy in the smallest cost-efficient size so I might go through some at some point. But I doubt it, even though I wear frags 24/7 now. I'll have to put them in my will I guess...
Too many to count. Most recently, Narcisse Noir EDT, Vol de Nuit, Cuir Ottoman and Cuir de Lancome.
"No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this." Desert Rose by Sting and Cheb Mami, Album 1999.
Only one, .5 oz of Calvin Klein Truth, not even a full bottle and that was back in high school, I think I have too many now!! :/
Do they turn bad if you kept them for too long?
Only 1. The one that really got me into fragrances: My first bottle of Acqua Di Gio.
"I am a robot and I like cheese"
1. Axe Kilo
2. Lectric Shave
3. Vicks Vapor Rub
4. Febreze Pour Homme
5. Preferred Stock
