    Default Today I finished my bottle of................

    Hi,

    I don't know if a thread like this exists but maybe it's fun to write down here the fragrance bottle you just finished and if you're going to rebuy it or not!?

    I will start by saying I finished today my 100ml bottle of Antonio Puig's Don Algodon 'Cool!' Who didn't grow up with it?!
    A cheapie only for sale in Spain for €9.99 with the deodorant and with it's 1 hour longevity I used it as a kind of body spray for it's extreme freshness. I won't rebuy it but it was fun while it lasted.

    My Top '10' : (In no particular order)

    - Dolce & Gabbana: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Pal Zileri: Cuoio
    - Loewe: Esencia/Pour Homme/Solo
    - Davidoff: Leather Blend Edp
    - Revillon R
    - MPG: Santal Noble
    - Acqua di Parma: Colonia Intensa /Leather/Oud
    - Knize Ten
    - YSL: Kouros (Fraîcheur)
    - Dior: Aqua Fahrenheit

    I have a bottle of Platinum Egoiste by Chanel with a few drops left. I purchased it two and a half years ago. Maybe I need to just spray it so I can be done with it.

    And no, I won't be buying this again for myself.

    I like this...
    Unfortunately for me, I doubt I'll ever be posting in here. I've had a bottle of Lacoste PH for 8 years...it's still 60% full.
    Although my 40ml of L'Homme might be gone before the end of the 2013 year!

    Interesting thread, Slayerized! I had a bottle of Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male that I bought in Paris in 2000. The small amount left had turned. But, I kept that bottle as a memory for a while...and, about 6-7 months ago, I bought a new Authentic bottle to replace it. Although I like other scents in the similar realm even more, Kurkdjian created something unique and unmistakeable in the striped blue/aquamarine sailor's torso. I had to replace it.

    That was the last "full-size" bottle I finished and replaced. Holding onto some other scents (stored properly) that still have enough in them to enjoy in the months & years ahead.

    Cheers.

    Undoubtedly, Le Male is not what it was in the 90s. It is like M7, as masterpiece in my opinion. Why did YSL reformulate this fragrance?

    I don't think I'll see myself posting here either. None of my 18-ish bottles are in danger of running out any time soon. All are at least 80% full or more at this point.

    I have only a few drops left of Eau du Coq and Eau de Cologne Imperiale - a liberal application would exhaust either. I've already ordered two more bottles of Eau du Coq, and one of Imperiale. I shall have probably finished these in turn by this time next year.

    Both lovely fragrances. Those Guerlain eaux seem to get used up in no time.

    My wife is more of a bottle killer than I - in the last year, she's drained an Idylle 100ml, a Shalimar vintage EdC 90ml, and a Shalimar EdP 75ml.

    I've finished a 30ml PdN New York and a 100ml Habit Rouge EdT. I have a 250ml bee of Imperiale that I decant into a 50ml atomizer that I've refilled once in the last 6 months or so. This stuff does go fast. I'll sometimes freshen up by misting all over with it and rubbing it in, though I suppose I should use a sponge or washcloth. A sponge bath with Imperiale would be better than a real bath, I think - it disinfects and leaves a nice base for your Guerlain of choice to lay on. I'll spray my brush down with it sometimes too.

    It's been ages since I finished a bottle, but I'm at the end of samples of both of these:

    Bond No. 9: Andy Warhol
    Hanae Mori: HiM (not to be confused with H.M.) I'm near the end of a sample of both the EdT and EdP, with a preference for the EdT, oddly enough.

    Definitely. My bottles are bound to be used up at some point. I get incredibly paranoid with some of my bottles and how much I've used up so I tend to spray conservatively. My Aventus, for example, drives me crazy each time I use it because I can see it slowly disappearing. At least with GIT and SMW I'm blissfully unaware lol.

    Why? I am almost the opposite of this! Unless discontinued and not to get anymore juice is involved, I just use and spray how and whatever I want. When it's empty I will buy a new one or move on with my other bottles (depends). You only live once! Enjoy your scents to the full I'd say instead of getting conservative.......but again, to each his own.

    If you don't mind me asking, what did you not like about Platinum Egoiste to not purchase another bottle? Just asking bro.

    You love those Keslings! Ultra hard to find. I've only tried Be Bop pH -- too much incense for my taste.

    Oh man, I finished a 4 oz. bottle of Silver Mountain Water in an insanely fast time.... about 2 1/2 months. I wore it everyday and while the projection is fine on me, the longevity was what killed me. I reapplied this one many evenings after wearing it all day. I'm glad I did it.... it was worth it.... I will be getting another one.... maybe a huge flacon.... but not until next spring. I can't afford to wear this one year round.... but that's okay since IMO it's definitely a spring/summer scent. One of my favorites.
    If I Could Only Have a Dozen:
    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Creed Silver Mountain Water
    3. Guerlain Vetiver
    4. Acqua di Parma Colonia Intensa
    5. Creed Bois Du Portugal
    6. Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree
    7. Creed Tabarome Millesime
    8. Guerlain Heritage
    9. Penhaligon's Sartorial
    10. Creed Royal Oud
    11. Chanel Egoiste
    12. Creed EROLFA

    Today I finished my 4.2 oz. bottle of



    and I will replace that jewel sometimes in the near future, it is too good not to have it in your wardrobe.

    I also finished Trophee by Lancombe (1.7 oz), Paradise Homme by Alfred Sung (3.4 oz) and Pursue by Dunhill (3.4 oz) during the last couple of months and none of those will be replaced.

    I've finished a good amount of bottles because I usually stick to 3 at a time and get rid if the ones I know I'll never finish.

    About 3 years ago I killed off 2 3.4oz of YSL L'Homme

    I highly doubt that I will ever finish off any of my bottles now.

    None. Only bottle that came close recently was SL Daim Blond, with about 5 ml left. Even then I've already secured a backup. I get anxious when a favorite scent is running low. That's when I stop wearing it at least until I buy a replacement. In a nutshell I'll never finish a bottle as the last 5 ml will be kept for reference.

    I'm sure I'll be able to post here soon enough. I'm getting pretty low on a couple of my favorites, New Haarlem & Tobacco Vanille. While I would love to get backups before that happens, I'm quite short on extra funds atm, & it will likely take a good amount of time before I can replace them. I'm sure I'll weep quietly when this happens...
