Over 2 years easy. Too many fragrances to go through.
Thread: How long does your bottle last?
I've never in my life used up a whole bottle of a fragrance. I see people say how some frags are so expensive but in terms of cost per wear (3 spray average) I think they're one of the cheapest things I own.
How long does it take you to use up a fragrance bottle? Have you actually ever used one up?
Over 2 years easy. Too many fragrances to go through.
Tom Ford Private Blend Splits Costa Azzurra / Mandarino Di Amalfi / Oud Wood / Tobacco Vanille / Tobacco Oud / Neroli Portofino / Noir de Noir / Tuscan Leather / Plum Japonais/ Oud Fleur / Italian Cypress / Venetian Bergamot / Jasmin Rouge / Café Rose / Amber Absolute HERE
havent even gone thru a 50ml bottle yet, much less a 100ml
used to take me about 1 year. now it would take about 35 years.
Want to trade - Chanel Platinum Egoiste for Dior Eau Sauvage...
2 years plus with ease.....way too many bottles.....If I only had one bottle a 3.4 would last around 6 months!!!
I have never finished a bottle, not even a mini, and some go back more than 20 years. So I try to buy the smallest sizes available.
Wow...Never?? Man, I recently finished a 50ml that was given to me as a gift just over 4yrs ago. Now, it wasn't something I wore as a daily fragrance much but I did wear it out at night quite a bit one summer. I'm talking about Bvlgari PH Soir, one of the smoothest scents I've ever owned.
Thierry Mulger A*Men Taste of Fragrance
Calvin Klein Euphoria Intense for Men
Iceberg The Fragrance for Men
Byredo Black Saffron
John Varvatos Original
Dior Homme Intense
If smelling good was a crime, I'd be serving a lifetime sentence....

With all the expense I'm glad at least my fragrances have lasted years and with a lot of them for many more too come.
Never finished one bottle. One of the very first bottles I bought when I started this hobby was a 100ml Body Kouros and that is still 85% full. In the past 2 years I don't even notice the juice level in bottles depreciating.
the last 2 decades I only owned 3-4 bottles of juice per season, 3-4 100 ml EDT for winter and 3-4 100 ml EDDT for summer, and I used these up regularly, then bought new stuff.
Didn't have a collection per se - only 3-4 bottles at a time.
So I would say for the average EDT user, it will take 5-6 months with 3-4 bottles in his collection.
For the average base noter, I think a 100 ml bottle of EDT juice will last in the region of 5-10 years depending of size of collection and how much the user use that particular juice.
I personally probably will go through a 100 ml EDT every 8-10 year, and my collection is growing with 15-20 bottles a month at the moment......

I have a really small collection of 30 fragrancea and I have not used up to 50% of any bottle so it may last at least 2 years easily.
I bought a bottle of perfume as birthday give to one of my superviser every year --two years ago we worked together as secretaries to the director of our devision. It took him around 6 - 8 months to finish a bottle.
***My favourite from my collection***
-------- Amouage: Tribute Attar, Jubilation XXV, GoldMan
------ Serge Lutens: Chêne, Tubéreuse Criminell, Ambre Sultan
-------- Les Exclusifs de Chanel: Sycamore, Coromandel
------ Tom Ford Private Blend: Noir de Noir, Tobacco Vanille
------- Hermès: Terre D'Hermès Parfum, Ambre Narguilé
------ EDP Frederic Malle: Carnal Flower
-------- Neela Vermire Creations: Trayee
------ Parfum MDCI: Invasion Barbare
I used to have over 100 full bottles as I'd only buy 3.4 oz's. At that rate it'd probably take me 12 years to go through a bottle. I have 15 fragrances now and by the looks of my collection will take about 2.5 to 3.5 years to go through a 3.4 oz bottle. Anything over 20 full bottles is going to be 10 ml decants. I love fragrances, but I'd much rather own a brand new Porsche, used Ferrari, or Lamborghini instead of thousands of bottles of something perishable.

Used to be around 6 months but now I'm not sure how long it will take. I'm starting to wonder if I'll even get through a 100ml bottle again.
I said 1-2 years. I have a bottle of Habit Rouge EdT that I've used about 1/2 of in 6 months. That will be gone by the end of the year. I also have a 500ml bottle of vintage EdC that I'm using at an even faster rate - maybe 100ml in 9-12 months. I often layer them. I use the EdP and extrait too, but in lower volumes.
My others will last for ages - most get worn about once or twice a month, with a few getting several wears a month. Ones that I will probably drain within 5 years are Egoiste, New York, Ambre Sultan, Mitsouko, and Jicky.

If it is my signature scent 1 1/2 months tops. If I am on vacation 1 month.
I could never be a fan of niche. Can you imagine ? I'd be the best smelling homeless person at the shelter.
When I wasn't a frag junkie, I only had 4.2 ounce of CK Obsession and that lasted me 4 years. Only after that ran out, I got into fragrances.
Thank God that ran out.
