    Default Your precious, unopened, Back Up collection!!

    I have a few stored/unopened bottles that I purchased just in case the unimaginable happened and they were discontinued

    So I am currently hoarding the following: These will not be touched for at least the next 12-18 months.

    Burberry London EDT x 100ml
    Fahrenheit EDT x 50ml
    Pure Havane EDT x 100ml
    2 x Pure Malt EDT x 100ml

    Anybody else got some 'Back up's tucked away?

    Going to be buying an extra bottle of Dior Homme Sport (2008), and Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche soon.

    And I think I am going to by a 250ml bottle of Creed Spice and Wood very soon... I hope... I just need to bring myself to pull the trigger -- not for a lack of love, but that pricetag... jeez.

    I have been trying to track down an unopened bottle of Creed Royal English Leather for a backup... but can't seem to find one just yet...

    I just visited the coveted back-ups yesterday and to my dismay... 4 had leaking issues. Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!

    Three were from overseas and were tightly bubble wrapped. They were so nicely wrapped that I decided to leave 'em be when I received them a couple summers ago. WRONG. The problem was that the vendor had taken the nozzle off the stem and duct taped the stem opening. The vendor did not warn me they had done this. I really dont know why they did this, doesn't make any sense to me... no other vendors have ever done such a thing. Anyway, laying them on their sides evidently sealed their fates and I'd imagine slow leaking occurred. 2/3's of the juice evap'd!

    BIG LESSON(s) LEARNED: 1) Unwrap everything you get down to the bottle OR cellophane; 2) Do not lay a frag down on its side for storage; 3) No matter how strong you think the frag is, if you can smell it 'about', you better check throroughly for leaks.

    Planning to get a back up of Spiritueuse Double Vanille and trying to look for a used vintage bottle I think having a back up is great if you 100% know that you are going to get another bottle once your done with it. Since the prices of fragrances usually goes up... for example Creeds Inflation sucks Zzzzz

    M7 vintage. And I have several bottles of Dior Homme, and its vintage variations, in my collection. So that's kind of a back-up strategy. Any time I buy a very large bottle I consider it a back-up strategy. Any Creed flacons, for example - so large, you're well backed-up, unless you frequently drench yourself in it.

    Although I don't have a source, there was someone who said they spoke with a TM rep and they said PM will be staying, and PH will be discontinued (again?).

    Anyway, I'm too new to have any back up bottles of stuff.

    I only have 29 fragrances (and counting) and I enjoy all of them and love a few, yet I alternate so much that I highly doubt that I will be able to ever finish these bottles off. All of my fragrances are at minimum 95% full, therefore I see no need for back-ups.

    I see some of you with 2,3 and 4 back up bottles of 3-4 different fragrances and some of you have massive collections.

    So I ask you guys, do you get these backups because you actually love and wear them a lot and you're scared they may be discontinued and you won't have any more, or are you just getting back ups for the sake of having backups???

    No backups, but I should probably go and get those bottles of Gucci Pour Homme II at the local fragrance store before they disappear. It's a lovely scent and unlike most people, I get no longevity issues with it at all.

    Meh, I started collecting backups before I realized that a) I'll die before I'll finish any of them, and b) there's always something different, whether it be new, old, or simply overlooked. The only thing I think I'll get a backup of is Ormonde Man, and that's only because they only come in 50ml bottles. Over this past weekend, I sold my service DHI, and two June 2010 (gasp!) bottles of DHI on ebay. My only regret is that I sold them so low. I am still getting messages with people offering around $200 a bottle.

    I don't keep many backups, but do have a few of Giorgio of Beverly Hills (vintage) and Terre d'Hermes. I wish I had those 8 Cuiron backups ezink has as those apart from smelling incredible are worth a small fortune... Alas I have just the one. :-(

    There are others but these are the main ones, especially Sous le Vent & Tiffany for Men. Some are already discontinued, most have already suffered at the hands of the EU/IFRA hatchet job so you're late to the party and if they haven't already they will soon because of their ingredients.

    If you know what you like and want to be able to wear it in the future then my recommendation would be to check on the potential for reformulation (there are plenty of threads about IFRA) and if it is at risk then consider backing up because (a) the version you buy in the future will be at best a pale imitation of what you now know and love, and at worst an insult to your intelligence and (b) it will also cost more (just to add insult to injury), because prices do not go down

    I went crazy with the backup thing for a while and, like others, realized that I had more than enough. Almost all of my backup materiel (spelling is correct) comes in the form of bath and body products, because that's mostly what I use and the b&b products tend to get discontinued before the edt does.

    8 bottles of the lovely, long gone Indian Vetiver by Bath&Body Works.
    5 bottles of my dearest Nicole Farhi Homme.
    4 bottles of Kenzo's Air Intense.
    3 remaining big bottles of my beloved, now extinct Herbissimo Bambú (I bought like a dozen just before it vanished from the shelves).
    A couple of backups each for Davidoff's Good Life, Lacroix's Tumulte, Celine's Fever and Yves Rocher's Kiwi.
    Also, replacements for Matsushima's Very Male, Givenchy's Greenergy and Gucci's Rush.

    I think that's it.

    3 x 75ml of Creed Green Valley, purely because it has been discontinued and I love the stuff.

    Should be enough to last me until the old toes turn up.
    Life's a bitch. If it were a slut it'd be easy.

    Just one: YSL Kouros in the 3.4 OZ bottle. It's actually not a back-up...I sold my main bottle, but I kept this one tucked away for sentimental reasons (my wife and kids bought it for me and it was my main scent when we were dating). Don't know if I'll ever open it.

    I have one backup bottle of Pure Havane, which I doubt I'll ever get into considering how many bottles I've acquired this year. Might give it to my brother.
