    Default One scent you've been through the most bottles of [used - not stocked up]

    Hi,

    I was browsing through a thread where everyone listing the bottles they have in duplicates / stocked up.

    My question is two-fold.

    - Which is the one perfume you've been through the most bottles of;
    - Which scent would you always have in your collection, even if you reduced your collection down to only a few bottles.

    For me; it's Burberry Touch.

    I've been through around three 100ml bottles over the years.

    This is probably one of the bunch of perfumes which really got me in to it all. I absolutely love the scent. For me its refreshing and quite serious at the same time. I don't use it as much now but its one I think will always have.

    How about yourselves? [apologies if this has been done before]

    Several Amber Sultana during high school.
    Several Micallefs (can't remember which one exactly - transparent bottle with faded colored trim)
    3 Armani Onde Mystere
    5 or 6 50ml of Tuscan Leather

    for swap/sale:

    Several Helmut Lang EDT
    Several CDG2Man
    Several Helmut Lang Cuiron...

    These would also be three fragrances that I will always try to keep in my wardrobe (unfortunately Cuiron is getting very hard to find nowadays). I'll add Onda Extrait and Jicky.

    The only 2 bottles I've every finished are:

    Bleu de Chanel and Guerlain Homme L'Eau

    My heavier scents tend to stick around longer due to the environment in which I work.

    Over the last few years I've bought three bottles each of Egoiste, Mugler Cologne, and original M7 so they tie for most bottles used.
