    Default Which do you buy backup because you like it so much

    Which do you buy multiple bottles because you like it so much.

    For me:
    6 x bottles 125ml of vintage Le male
    2 x 200ml Hermes Terre D'Hermes Parfum
    2 x 100ml Hermes Terre D'Hermes Edt
    4 x 50ml vintage D&G poor homme
    2 x 100ml Allure Home Edition Blanche
    2 x 100ml Dior homme intense.

    Am I crazy to buy so many? Anyone same like me, buy so many?

    Default Re: Which do you buy backup because you like it so much

    1x 100ml of Nautica Voyage
    1x 75ml of LIDGE
    1x 100ml of DHI
    1x 100ml of vintage Bel Ami

    Thinking I also need to add backups of:
    1x 100ml of L'Occitane Eau des Baux
    1x 100ml of L'Occitane Vetyver

    For Voyage, mostly because it's $20 and I spray it like mad during Summer, but also because the new Voyage N-83 sucks and I'm fearful that this may be the replacement for the original. For both the L'Occitanes because of the recent mention of discontinuation, and I'd hate to not have both of these in my wardrobe if they become scarce.

    Everything else I'm willing to take my chances on at this point, because I feel like there's sufficient availability, or I just wouldn't care that much if it ran out.

    These first four are preventive measures, prior to reformulation:

    Tom Ford Noir, Black Orchid, LIDGE, Eau Sauvage Parfum

    The following are various vintage formulations:

    Mugler Cologne (original flacon w/ more musk)
    Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui (vintage)
    M7 (vintage)
    Guerlain Vetiver (ribbed)
    Rive Gauche PH (tin can)

    I regret not buying several bottles of Dior Homme when it first came out.

    I have backups of these:

    Dior Homme Sport 2008
    Dior Homme Sport 2012
    Dior Vetiver
    D & G The One
    Dirty English
    Creed Royal English Leather

    and a few others that I can't think of at the moment. And many more I would like to get.

    Default Re: Which do you buy backup because you like it so much

    Yes I do. 2 bottles of DHI (original forumation) 100ml and 2 bottles of L'instant de Guerlain Eau Parfum 75ml.

  17. #17

    Default Re: Which do you buy backup because you like it so much

    Chanel Pour Monsieur (1955) [because it's very tough to find in the USA]
    Patou Pour Homme [because I was able to acquire some backup before it became ridiculously expensive]
    Stardust for Men [because I thought it was going out of availability]
    Guerlain Vetiver [because of incremental reformulation]
    Chanel Allure Homme [for fear of future reformulation]
    Caron Pour Un Homme [because the enormous bottle was so inexpensive]

    None. Not having backups make what little I have left even more precious. But it sure helps with the wardrobe rotation.

    Default Re: Which do you buy backup because you like it so much

    I haven't found any fragrance that I'd want to backup except for Gucci Envy for men - 2 bottles 50 ml and 150 ml. If I were to find it somewhere, I'd most likely buy one more bottle no matter what size - just to be "safe".

  23. #23

    Default Re: Which do you buy backup because you like it so much

    I think that I'd only buy backups if I heard it was going to be or was discontinued. The price wouldn't skyrocket much until after it becomes discontinued, and I can spend that money on newer fragrances.

    Default Re: Which do you buy backup because you like it so much

    Nothing. For me personally, that would be pointless. All juice will expire eventually, and I'll never use up all I have. I'd rather burn through my collection than duplicate bottles I already have.

    Default Re: Which do you buy backup because you like it so much

    I have a few, though I don't know why since I will likely never even finish off a first bottle, let alone a second. Still, I love each of these enough to have backups for, just in case:

    Rive Gauche
    Halston Man Amber
    Vintage Z-14
    Vintage 1-12
    Tous Man Sport

    Of these, I would probably buy another bottle of Halston Man Amber, since it is discontinued and is one of my favorites.
