    I've yet to finish a bottle. But I have been using fragrances for somewhat less than two years.

    I probably won't buy any more FB's because I have about a dozen or so that is taking me a long time to finish. However, is it a lot more expensive per ounce to buy decants compared to just owning a bottle? I know you have to compare prices with different sellers, but has anyone looked in it much? I'd rather have four 1-ounces of different juice than just a 3.4 FB of something since there are so many great scents out there these days.

    You know I feel the same way. I've started to buy smaller bottle sizes because I don't like the idea of wearing just one or two fragrances for too long. I think one year is my limit and then I move onto another scent. I aso hate the thought of having a collection of fragrances. I think 4 bottles is enough.

    I've been deep in the fragrance game for about four years and have yet to use up a 100ml bottle. Knowing this, it's easier for me to purchase expensive bottles as I know they're an investment I may have for a decade or so...

    How long does it take you to use up a fragrance bottle? Have you actually ever used one up?
    It depends on many factors such as how much the atomizer releases with each spray.

    It mainly depends on how big your collection is and how often you use your fragrance.

    If you have a collection of less than 5 or 10 colognes, you can expect to use most of them up in a few years.

    If it is one of your favorites, it could be used up in a year or two.

    If its your only cologne and you wear it regularly, probably about a year.

    If you are a serious collector and have 50 to 100+ fragrances, most of them will probably never be used up entirely. Half of them will probably never even be used 20%, in your life time.

    If I only use one bottle (100ml) it would last 3 months.

    I have actually emptied six or seven 100ml fragrances, but back then I had 3-4 fragrances and now I have 20. So I don't see myself using a whole bottle of certain fragrance (Creed in my case) in next 2 yrs.
    Right now I think that I have all the fragrances that I want.

    To me, a 1-2 years minimum, since I alternate scents very often

    Completely agree on this!
    When one uses a normal rotation with, let's say, 50 bottles, it will take years and years.
    When owning only two bottles, only some months.

    I use for two full wearings (day/evening) like 1.5/2 ml a day average in total, so let's say finishing seven 100ml (3.4 Oz) bottles a year, but you can better say 700ml divided over some different juices.

    Could be 3 months or never.

    I own a lot of bottles and they usually last at least a couple of years, but I've used up several 100ml (or thereabouts) bottles in 3-6 months. That was especially true when I used to wear more Creeds, most of which have the bone structure of a sea cucumber, and I sprayed them a lot in an attempt to get some satisfaction out of them.

    In 10,000 years, when aliens are excavating the ruined relics of human civilization, I'm sure they will find all of my bottles still unfinished. I simply cannot imagine ever finishing an entire 100 ml bottle again.

    It depends on how you think of it. I would say one every 3-4 months. I have been into this about 3 years and have only "emptied" one bottle, but I have used about 800-900 ml of juice in those three years, thats 300ml a year, so 100ml every 4 months or so...

    Before basenotes I only had 3 fragrances. It would take me about a year or more to go through a 3.4 oz bottle. Now that I have a collection that's growing including samples, splits/decants I barely go through any of them.

    Way to long, a better question would be how long does it take for you to use up a 15ml decant?

    hmm i've never gone through an entire bottle until i got my burberrys (london & brit)
    they were both gifts to me of a higher end fragrance so i love them very much W______W
    they are not 100ml bottles but both bottles combined lasted me a few months over a year
    edit: i just looked and they are 50 ml bottles ^^

    i do have a 100ml bottle of chanel 19 which ive been wearing quite frequently since last december
    i havent even dented it, which is great because i love the airs of the fragrance lol

    i would say 2-3 years for me

    Default Re: How long does your bottle last?

    I haven't ever used up a bottle. Some of my older frags (some cheap frags I got as a present) I didn't like any more before using them up. I've almost used up a 30 ml of Bulgari Thé vert extreme, which I still love. Now I don't use it that often any more because I have that many frags.
    Whenever I even see a significant decrease in the level of a frag I panick and think of stocking up (fear of reformulation etc. etc.). One of the bottle I see that might be used up relatively quickly is Chanel's Egoiste- I bought it used (only 25 ml) and find it very addictive

    I've used up over 50 bottles, back in the days when I wasn't collecting and I also used to give away to friends many quarter full bottles after buying new scents but now, as I started to collect again, and especially to stock up on my favorite fragrances (those ones in my wardrobe are only the 100% full bottles, with back ups, most of them sealed in their boxes and untouched) I guess that 100 ML of juice should last about 1 - 2 years.

    4 months for finish a 3.4oz bottle if I wear the same fragrance everyday.

    Like d4N13L above, I enjoy wearing one fragrance for a few months, so I could through a bottle between 4-6 months.

    Just finished off a 90mL bottle of Spicebomb and it came out just over a month ago. What can I say: I like it. :-)
