    Yes. I'm very familiar with my fragrances.

    Not really, after 50+, it would become difficult, yet I'd still recognize some of the personal favorites.

    With ease. When I smell a fragrance and understand it (if that makes sense), I can form sort of mental image of it. It's very similar to remembering face of a person you know.

    Yes, I have only about 20 different scents and they're distinct enough from one another that I can tell them apart.

    Fun challenge...I'll have to try sometime. Right now, I think my collection is small(ish) enough that I could probably do it. To be fair, when I hunt for a frag, I'm hunting for something specific...so I'm usually not looking for frags that smell similar to each other.

    If it were just smelling the atomizer (something I do a lot) then probably yes. If it were something after it's dried down it might be a bit harder.

    I should hope I can - I don't usually pull the trigger on a full bottle or even a large decant unless I like it enough to tell it apart blind from the other things I've sampled.

    Most of them. All of them? Doubt it. I'd probably struggle to say which is which when it comes to some of my "old men's scents".

    I am a bit diffident about these data.....
    The REAL blind test is the following: 1-spray each fragrance on paper, 2-write on the edge the name of the fragrance, 3-then mess up all the papers (35 fragrances=35 papers) and 4-smell and try to identify , without reading.
    I have NEVER seen a 100% accurate when the fragrances are n > 25
    Even more difficult, after 6-12-18 hours...

    (BTW this is a very good test to check perfume quality: if you can smell something on paper, after 24-36-48 hours, THIS is a proof of great quality of "ingredients" used)

    I only have about 25 scents, so I definitely could tell them apart since most are not even remotely similar. Of the samples I have though, I probably couldn't identify them all since I rarely wear some of them.

    For my bottles, yes. For my samples, no.

    I am pretty sure I could, though I only have around 30 bottles. Sounds like a fun exercise to try on a rainy day though! I will have to give it a shot.

    I have an extremely small collection, so it's a no brainer, but I hope I never get to the point where I'm buying bottles that are so close to something I already have that I can't tell the difference.

    That seems like a great test!

    I could do this for my 10-12 fragrances without any problems.

    Yes, so long as I get to look through the bottles once before.

    The full bottles, yes; the samples, no.
