    Ugh that's better than mine. I get money every 2 weeks, and for a particular month I was only getting paid once for the month. I blew all of my money on the 3rd and lived on 50 cent packs of ramen for the rest of the month. But hey, at least fragrances love me back.

    You check Basenotes before visiting any major city, to get a heads up on perfume shopping locations to Google map.

    When your roommate asks if you subscribe to something that sends packages every week.

    When you scrounge around your stuff looking for things to sell to offset the next purchase you have planned.

    When you have a detailed spreadsheet with seasonal/yearly plans on which fragrances to purchase/buy.

    When you've spent more time watching fragrance reviews/impressions than any other media.

    When all of the above is true...

    When you have convinced yourself perfume art work knows no price limits.

    When you weigh up all other discretionary spending as temporary and shortlived compared to how much a new fragrance purchase can give you.

    You are obsessed ... when you live in Florida, and during January/February it does get cool ... and it is necessary to heat the whole house with the from the ceiling heating system. And you know that the heating bill is twice that of the Summer air conditioning bill. And you live without heat, and sleep under a high pile of blankets, just to continue to buy your darling niche fragrances and follow the sample path !!! LOL

    I don't have a wife (and never will :')) but, I constantly get "Nahh.. you care more about your perfumes"

    When you're loved ones are having a serious conversation with you and all you're thinking about is "So if I bought ***** last week, I have £100 to spend on ****** then pay day is Saturday so I can get..."

    How about... as a reaction to your loved ones complaining about your obsession, you decide yes, you need a break from bottled frags and then find yourself buying incense sticks in a (very) wide variety from a wholesaler?
