    It has a sharp/metallic accord, and the scent is soapy... despite the hype of its lasting power, it has a short life span on my skin, which is good because I didn't enjoy the scent on me. However, I don't mind smelling it on others. I bought a small bottle for my father last June(?), and he finished it in September.

    I'm much younger compared to the veterans on this site, and I have a relatively small collection (18 fragrances) but I can never imagine myself actually finishing a fragrance.

    That's why I normally go for the smaller sizes (1.7 Oz or 2.5 Oz)

    So, in 10 years or so all your 1.7 OZ bottles are all still filled with juice and none of them is empty yet?? Strange.........

    There was a similar Thread earlier this year, actually

    I have managed to knock another Eau de Cologne du Coq and a Tiffany for Men 50ml on the head since this was taken. And my new Granville is almost done . . . it was long, hot summer.

    Nearly done with my bottle of L'eau d'Issey, and will eventually replace it, but not for a while. I may get one of the summer flankers instead.

    Yes, why not. Maybe it's interesting to mention if you will buy a full bottle of it or not when it's empty?!............

    Haha I think it's because I really haven't found a signature scent yet, so all my rotating makes me think I'll never really finish a bottle. Although, my YSL L'homme is 30% used and it's a 60ml. That one is the closest to finishing I think.

    I'd recommend trying to find the Summer 2009 edition, very hard to find these days. But in my opinion it is much better than the original and the best one of them all, I was quick to grab myself a few bottles. Although, if you really want it, I'd be happy to send it your way.

    My fav is finishing the sample that led to a full bottle purchase after I get the bottle.

    You must constantly smell amazing. This picture makes me desperate to give the Cartier and Granville a second chance - I wasn't a huge fan of Granville on first sniff but something about it keeps making me want a bottle... will try again on my next visit to the boutique.

    Granville is not for everyone, it is a deft mix of old school and modern, but the oakmoss (such as it is, the 'legal minimum I suppose) adds a sense of depth underneath the garriguey pine that's unusual in contemporary stuff. I've heard it described as 'stale' by some, which is probably due to only being acquainted with very recent synthetic 'men's stuff' - Granville has a complexity and maturity to it that's rare these days. I suppose if the proposed zero tolerance for oakmoss legislation goes thru they'll kill this one as well . . .

    That will be a sad day indeed. Both superb fragrances in my opinion.

    As for myself, I finished a 5 mL sample of Aventus a week or so ago (that I refilled with a 2mL sample a few weeks earlier). I ended up buying 50mL via a split.

    Well I finished a bottle of Boss Orange before it finished me! I got it as a present but didn't like it at all! So although it was 90% full I expelled it from my galaxy!!!

    In the last month I've finished and replaced all of the following 100ml bottles:

    Z Zegna Extreme (could only find a 50ml replacement for this )
    Essenza de Zegna Summer
    Kouros Cologne Sport
    Rive Gauche Pour Homme (I already had 2 large 125ml back up bottles but couldn't help myself getting another )

    The following are almost used up (in the next month or so) and I'm currently sourcing replacements:

    Allure Homme Sport
    Kouros Tattoo

    Although I have 250plus large bottles in my collection, I seem to always be running out of something!

    The last one I killed was Un Jardin Sur Le Nil, but that was before I was sucked into this never ending and temporarily satisfied fragrance hobby. I am dangerously close to dusting my only bottle of Wallstreet (hang in there Gekko).

    Not sure what the etiquette is on reviving old threads, but Bulgari Black. Sent to me by a Basenoter a couple of years ago when I was first starting out. In two minds about re-buying. Unique stuff, but not the best performer. I'm leaning towards re-buying (although I guess I never technically bought it in the first place).

    Cool thread. I don't see anything wrong with reviving it. There are lots of other Frankenstein threads shuffling around these days.

    I drained a 100ml bottle of Eau du Coq last weekend. Took about a year. I already had another one queued up, so no service interruption resulted. ;-)

    Thanks!

    In the meantime I finished a 50ml bottle of current version of Paco Rabanne pour homme which I won't rebuy as it is too soapy and too different from vintage of which I fortunately still have some good stash! I also finished Gillette Cool Wave, 2x Caractere (aftershaves), 2x 30ml bottles of Azzaro Chrome edt (my fav. aquatic), an old 50ml of Tabac edt (no rebuy) and a 100ml of Aqua Quorum edt by Antonio Puig (no rebuy either).

    I never kill a bottle. Can't remember the last time I did for sure. I know I have finished GIT off at least twice in my life.

    It is quite a while since I haven't finished a bottle any longer, due to fragrance rotation, backups etc. But judging by the filling level, the using frequency and such, it is quite likely that a bottle of Ungaro III will be the first finished.

    Great thread!

    Recently finished my Beckham Homme which was a nice cheapie though I doubt I'll replace it. My Rochas Man. Live Jazz and Body Kouros are all very low and will be done within 6 months I predict.
