    Default 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?

    Do you actually ever finish a bottle before you bin it or give it away or lose it?

    So far I have only finished around 6-7 bottles. I did give away a fare share of bottles throughout the years tbh.

    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.
    Spring/Summer Rotation:

    Versace Pour Homme
    Kenzo Pour Homme (vintage)
    Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme (vintage)
    D& G Masculine
    Christian Dior Dune
    Guerlain Homme (EDT)
    Bond No9 Riverside Drive

    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.

    Seems to me it would take an awful lot of 100 ml bottles to equal one new Porsche...

    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.

    This is just too true, that's why decants are so great! (By the way, this guy does an awesome job with splits)

    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.

    Hello Ruben,

    what do you layer your Habit Rouge with most often, other frags or just same frag in perfume and EDT version ?

    The math I'm coming up with is 1000 bottles at an average price of $80 to $100 a bottle. A niche heavy collection even at 500 bottles with and average of $140 per bottle is still $70,000. Might not be a Carrera or Turbo, but it's not going to be a Boxster.
