    I currently have
    Aventus
    D&G The One
    D&G The One Sport
    Bleu De Chanel
    Le Male
    La Nuit
    Last night and today I ordered decants of Creed MI, Dior Homme Intense, Allure Homme Sport, Reflection Man and samples of Tobacco Vanille, Angel Men and L'eau D'Issey.
    Hopefully I will find a couple I like out of these.
    I also want a sample of SpiceBomb.

    Yup. This forum can get expensive! Then again, I've saved a lot of money (sort of) by buying samples from The Perfumed Court, Luckyscent, Parfums Raffy, etc instead of buying bottles. I've been surprised by how many fragrances I desperately wanted to buy turned into scents I didn't need to own once I had a sample.

    Samples rock!

    Same I would rather own a bottle, cause if anything you can get cash back by selling decants.

    Than again, at least in my particular case and form my own limited experience (as I might have mentioned before on other threads), while still not cheap, this site has genuinely helped me save money, as opposed to having acted out/given in to/acted on/undergone etc. my fragrance hobby unsupervised and with no guidance, advice, information whatsoever.

    If you hang around here long enough, you may have to forget buying that new car or boat in the near future.
    But when you do get it, you'll smell darn good driving or sailing around in it.

    One of the things I like about this hobby is that it can be as expensive or inexpensive as you want. Nobody every forced me to buy anything.

    I like the fact that I can find fragrances that I never would have known about if I didn't become a part of this forum.

    I bought 130 bottles last year. So... yes, I am aware of the symptoms.

    Every time I think I have found "the one", I smell another and wonder how I missed this one and so on.

    Sampling and decants are the way to go. When you have a good number of fragrances in your wardrobe, a nice 10-20 ml decant can last a loooooong time

    Fragrance collecting is a hobby, the more the better , I also think fragrances are a great investment.

    Hi,
    I registered myself in this forum in November 2012 and at that time I had about 10 fragrances.
    Yesterday I bought my fragrance number 350, so I start to get worried!
    I'd rather not think about the money I've ever spent.
    But at least this addiction is not harmful and gives me a great pleasure.

    The most money I have ever spent on has been on fragrances. This all started after joining basenotes.

    It is good to spend money on fragrances. It is good for the economy of the countries that produce the perfumes. It creates jobs. And it makes you a better person, because the charm of smelling good is undeniable.
