    You know you're obsessed when you pillage boxing day sales, filling a cart with perfumes you've never smelled because they were on sale.

    Well, you have to know what scenic sites you want to hit on your trip right? I laughed at this post because I have definitely put my wife and kids through this on trips we have taken.

    I get insomnia and lay awake all night thinking about my next trade or purchase. It drives my wife nuts and can't be very good for my health.

    You keep a secret PayPal and checking account hidden from your wife so you can purchase fragrances.

    Or when you check the mail again a few times after already receiving it, just in case you missed something the first time around.

    I think, based on the contents of this thread and how many of them apply to me (a worryingly large number) I think I ought to say at this point, 'hello, I'm medusa, and I'm a scentaholic'.

    There, got it off my chest now.

    I think there are a fair few of these that are just indicative of someone passionate about their hobby. I think if you were doing things like going without food or not paying bills, or ruining your financial situation due to fragrances, sure, that's an issue.

    But, smelling your fragrances often, taking a while to decide what to wear, that's normal to me. Same with spraying a fragrance because it crossed your mind. We're dealing with powerful memory triggers here, since scent is the best way to remember something it seems fine to spray it.

    Didn't mean to derail the thread or anything like that, so I suppose I'll add one I don't really do myself:

    When you sit in your room and try and name every fragrance you own and their dominant notes, and you can do so perfectly...and you're collection is very large. That's dedication!

    When you install a state-of-the-art alarm system, including high-tech lasers, just to guard a few bottles of perfume

    When you are willing to go on a LONG road trip every weekend just to see their new products

    When you are willing to wait outside in the rain, snow, and extreme heat just to be at the launch of a new perfume

    When despite the horrors of air travel and airports you are prepared to take a two flight journey because after checking the in flight sales magazine, the releases at strange airports and countries you don't like visiting you don't have the patience to wait for a perfume released somewhere in the world you like (despite not liking the place!).

    When you know the man who everyone in town trusts to clear out Granny's dressing table when she dies.
    Those vintage gems sell for peanuts in his junk shop.
    So find yourself eyeing up every expensive smelling old lady in the street and wondering about her age and state of health.
