    I only have a modest collection of 272 - 282 if I count the 10 bottles I just paid for online 1 hour ago from cheapsmells.com and beautyencounter.com

    If I count my backup bottles in, I'm past the 300 mark now......

    I currently own 21 bottles (Bleecker St should be in today excited about that). 3 I don't really wear at all. The others I rotate pretty frequently.

    I own about 17 samples (Mostly Bon Bons)

    65 and I'm pretty damned happy with them.

    However, I've slowed down considerably recently and future purchases will have to really blow my socks off.

    > 100 full bottles, about half dozen backups, and 10+ samples = Too.Bloody.Many. I will be downsizing in the coming months (July is my one-year anniversary).

    Great poll btw, noirdrakkar. I've often wondered this question myself. I'm suffering from some serious perfume envy with my sub 10 collection.

    That might be a good place to start. Somewhere where us guys with small collections can learn to accept that there are others in the world who have been blessed with massive collections. The important thing to remember is that having a small collection doesn't make you any less of a man.

    I have around 40 FBs - and that's only because I'm simplistic and brutal and will not let this thing grow out of proportions. I have a radical principle of getting rid of a bottle pretty much every time I acquire a new one. It's not really all that hard - I'm a restless person and get tired of most fragrances after a while. In fact, I can't remember actually using up even a 50 mls bottle for years. As I buy new stuff all the time, others will soon have to go - at the moment Tam Dao and Lumière Noire are staring into the abyss...

    i've got no idea, probably over 150. it doesn't matter so much to me. i like all of them a lot, maybe 2 or 3 duds, love most of them to bits.

    Just over 100, but there are probably 30-40 of those that I will always have in my collection. For the people who have over 100, how many do you actually reach for?

    Default Re: how many frags do you own

    I have 3 dozen but I'm wanting to slim that down to about 2 dozen and then probably to stay in the 20s. If anyone wants to help you can see what I'm looking to trim away by what I have listed in my sale or trade thread which you get can to from the links in my sig. I don't really like having fragrances sitting around I don't wear since I'm not a collector, I'm a wearer. So the things I really love I will keep and things I don't will find a new home. The most amount of bottles I've had is in the 50s and I couldn't see myself ever getting back to that many.

    I'm both tickled and shocked as I read this thread. Wow, some of you have been collecting for a long time while others have been amassing bottles at an alarming rate! Its so interesting to hear about how others approach a hobby for which you are also so fond.

    I, too, have little trouble parting with bottles when its time to find some new ones. I vacillate between 20 and the low 30s. Couldn't see myself owning fewer than 15 or more than 40. That's just me...

    I have 33. I have started 7 months ago. Now I am buying 2-3 a month. I can only afford designer. I think I would have 15-20 that I use regulary and the rest wont be replaced after the bottle gets empty. I am gaining lot of experience which ones are the best and worth to be kept.

    I try to use them all evenly but there are a dozen or so that I find myself reaching for more frequently than others.

    I have about 70, but I have some I deliberately choose not to count that sit in draws and other places, so it could be as many as 80.

    Actually just counted everything last night and Im at 53 not counting the Vintage M7 and Kiehl's original Musk oil I just ordered. Ive made up my mind not to surpass 75, but like most people I have some bottles that I need to get rid that I blind bought early on. We should organize a huge BN online swap meet and trade our unwanted bottles. People on the Swap Boards are wanting very specific, and mostly High End and Niche bottles, and this would be a cool way to get rid of stuff you dont use that other people might enjoy.

  42. #102

    Default Re: how many frags do you own

    I voted for under 40 (true number is probably in the mid 30's), but this is only counting full size bottles that I own. I have a good number of mini's and a very large number of decants and samples (no way am I going to attempt to count those) that I don't think count in this poll. I am fairly new to having many frag's. In the past I have owned only a few, but since joining here my collection has grown significantly...

    A year ago 1 fragrance.
    Today about 75 fragrances plus even more samples.
    On a personal level very satisfying to have discovered Basenotes and fragrances and the fragrance community.
    On a financial & accounting level more worrisome as it fits a known pattern of collecting and spending.
    On the plus side, the fragrance community is friendly, supportive, and entertaining and writes the very best damn reviews. I'm not sure which I'm more enchanted by, the frangrances or of the reviewer's descriptions.

    IMO it has been getting out of hand. Honestly I envy those that have 1-2 scents that they love and wear daily. I look at my collection as a great wardrobe of fragrances but nothing that I can't live without. I am consistently searching for "the" scent.

    I'll try, when time/opportunity permits. From memory, some of the fragrances were already on the "missing" list. I will have to pull out ALL of my bottles from the closet/boxes. Something that I do only once or twice a year.

    Haven't counted but my guess would be around 500. Part of the collection is in San Diego and part in Montreal in my other home, a few are duplicates but not a lot. I have three shoe boxes full of samples and decants too but I rarely use them except for reference as I prefer 100 ml bottles for collector reasons.
