    Right now i have around 30 but i just started. I blind buy a 1.7 bottle every week based off of reviews and hype. Every now and then ill go to marshalls or tjmax to pick up a few bc im so impatient. Hopefully in 5 years from now ill have over 1,000 bottles. I also buy 3 niche sample per week and will buy only the niche bottles i like.

    After getting close to 70 bottles, I'm down to under 60 now. I've more or less instituted a buying freeze, save for usable sized decants (30 ml or under), and wouldn't mind getting under 40 within the next two years.

    They're stored in a large temperature controlled walk-in storage vault currently under renovation. So for now I have had to purchase 5 four-tiered tall shelves to store all in a cool place which is a bit cramped but will do the job until the renovations are completed.

    As of 48 hours ago, I was at well over 200 but the need to downsize my collection is evident. I heavily gravitate towards certain fragrances and saw I wasn't ever wearing the bulk of what I had first bought. My nose mature a little too fast, so much so that I hope to get my collection down towards 60 commonly used frags.

    Under 100 but just barely and not counting samples with no decants. I also buy only what I like...

    I try to buy the smallest cost-effective size, given that I will never use up what I have already.

    Actually it's over 100 if you count multiple bottles of things.

    Wonder what the ideal sized collection is. I've seen one on here that numbered in the thousands and was kept at several locations.

    When my bottle of Aperitif arrives from Fragrancenet arrives that will be bottle 97. I have several smaller bottles and samples as well. Current plan is that when I officially reach one hundred I want to level off there and try to save for some more expensive choices I've been foregoing while obtaining some cheaper ones that interested me.

    Currently have 44 bottles.

    Also have around 7 decants and around 90 samples.

    For those who don't do decants....can I ask why? Is it a collectors thing where you prefer to have the bottle? Or is it down to fear of degradation during the decant process?

    I'm at 70-something according to wardrobe, but over 100 actual bottles. Some of them I have various concentrations and vintages of (about a dozen each of Habit Rouge and Shalimar). A few of my 70+ are 50ml splits. I have about 10-15 decants and I stopped tracking samples.

    I have around 130 bottles and do wear them all at some point. It just means that they will last me forever! The worrying thing is that I'm in the process of purchasing more; I don't really want to own more than I can enjoy.

    Main reasons for not doing decants:

    1. Very expensive relative to samples (free) or bottles on a per ounce basis.
    2. I like things in the real bottles.
    3. I try to get 4-15 ml. of things I won't use very much. Much cheaper and more convenient than decants. Then I buy larger sizes if I think I will be using a lot of them.
    4. Decant companies seem flaky and unbusinesslike (see "Surrender to Chance" scandal).
    5. Decant bottles are boring and all look the same, like something out of a Chem lab.
    6. You never really know what's in those things.

    I keep considering decants for things it is impossible to get otherwise, don't come in small sizes, or are absurdly expensive in full bottles, but have always had other priorities.
