    Default change of heart with backups bottles

    Am interested to hear did ever happen to you that you own 2-3 bottles of something and you stopped wearing it for a while, and then your taste changed...or you got bored?

    Interested to hear, which scent was it?

    :-)

    I don't have any back up bottle, because i never purchased the same scent after i used up the whole bottle, now that i know my taste better and am more picky making some backup feels closer, but still not sure.

    I have Rive Gauche, Gucci Pour Homme II, Fahrenheit and Burberry London back ups. I got Rive Gauche because the Tin Can version is going EOL, the Gucci because they will almost certainly discon it, Fahrenheit because its prone to reformulation and I love the formulation I have and I have London, because I got a great deal. Always a risk that your tastes will change I guess, but I don't see it happening for me on the ones I have back ups for.

    This has never happened to me.

    Never happened to me either, I truly must enjoy a fragrance (and continue enjoying it over time) in order to buy backup bottles.

    I haven't stopped wearing it for good.

    It's a mood thing.

    I'll eventually come back to it. Hence the backups.

    for swap/sale:

    GIT - bought 1 then within a few days was offered another which I couldnt refuse, both are still sitting in my wardrobe, use them once or twice every 3 months - i try to rotate every frag I have, so buying back-ups is not too cost effective for me.

    That said, these are a few for which i might buy a new FB as soon as the current bottle reaches less than 50% - all Slumberhouses / all Nasomatto's / Knize 10

    I have backups of RL Chaps (1978) because it's becoming harder to find and I LOVE it, got a great deal too. I doubt my taste will change on that one. I have a backup of Swiss Army as well, because it was a gift and I already had a bottle. Not sure if I'll ever get to it but not sure what I'm going to do with it!

    On that note, what to do with backup bottles you're fairly certain you'll never use?

    Swap, give away or sell on Basenotes would be my choice should it happen to me.

    I only have back ups for Fahrenheit and Dior Homme Intense, I try not to get hung up too much on certain frags I really like as there is always something new on the horizon.

    Thank you for all the answers, i think i should have
    started another thread on question of loyalty , what was the scent that sticks with you the longest over the years and how many years is that?....like Hedonist said he is coming back to them even if making a break

    I have a lot of backups - probably unnecessarily so. Man, I hope I don't get sick of some of them!
