Thread: how many frags do you own
Sync'in and Think'in in 2015!
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 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 am now about to hit 100. I wonder what the ideal size is?
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 own 107 bottles and 50 cologne oils. I have about 15 fragrances on the wish list.
My top 5 changes like the Tennessee weather.
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

11full bottles, 5 1.7oz (3 are splits,) 62 samples. A few bottles and samples in the mail.
Before Basenotes I had 1 full bottle of L'Homme, 1 half bottle of vintage Jazz. 2 months ago.
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.
Around 200 bottles.

I still have under 20. (excluding decants and samples)
I just started buying bottles of fragrances i like. Up to 5. Trying to stay under 10.
12 now... Started collecting 2 months ago. Before that I used 1 bottle at a time until it was done.
@hednic post a pic of your collection here!
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.
