    Default How many frags have you actually finished a bottle of?

    One for me. Burberry Touch. The big bottle, too.

    I feel like Caron PuH will be the next to go top to bottom.

    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....

    None in the past 2 years or so.

    Before I would buy 4 or 5 100ml bottles every 6 to 7 months. Finish them then get new ones.

    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.

    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 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

    Makes sense, I also like to buy the smallest size. Cheaper and gives me a chance to experience more fragrances.

    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...
