    all of them- just not as frequently as someone with fewer bottles.

    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 45. Hopefully, should be able to stop at 50. After that, finish one then buy one. Been at it since 1975

    Last option. Around 160 full sized bottles. Cannot be more precise as not all fragrances that I own are listed in the fragrance directory.

    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.

    I would like to see some pics of you guys with your 1000+ bottle collection!

    I was at a little over a 100, but I sold most and am now down to 20 or so.

    I have around 35 bottles. Just barely started in November, however.

    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.

    If you have time, please list the missing ones in the "Missing fragrances list" in the forums. There are many of us now trying to update the directory and entering missing fragrances every week.

    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.

    Currently own 125. Really looking to get that number to sub 100. Oh, did I mention that I have about 10+ on my wish list. sigh

    I mistakenly chose under 60 but had to state that as of now I own 67 bottles including two minis (15 ml and 20 ml) and two or three large decants (50 ml).
    Plus I own quite some decants.

    Where do you store them? I imagine the storage space smells lovely. Or does it?

    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.
