    Default how much do you wear per year

    Someone asked a question on how long a 3.4 oz lasts. Of course, it depends on variables, how often you wear it, how much you put on each wearing (projection/longevity, essentially) and how liberal the sprayer is.

    Generally, I've noticed that, before I started collecting and I only owned 1 fragrance, Cool Water (which I wore regularly), I probably used about 100ml of it a year. And now that I have more bottles, it's harder to measure, but generally, it seems like I use 100ml as well.

    I don't want to set anything in stone, but I'd generally suggest to people that a 3.4 oz that you buy, if it's the only one you own, will last you 1 year, give or take. If you have 5 bottles in your collection, it will probably last you 5 years. Assuming that you use all of them and don't buy any more.

    Probably about right, as a rule of thumb. That's a handy way to look at it.

    So with this handy formula, we can deduce that hednic will be over 1,000 years old when he finishes his!

    I just finished a 15 ml bottle of fragrance, and then looked in my wardrobe and it indicated I had worn that fragrance approx. 40 times. Now, I may have missed a few days of tracking, but I think that I probably go through around .5 to .75 mls a day because I apply twice usually.

    So, I go through about 2 100ml bottles per year I need to spray more

    I can't even begin to imagine what I wear in a given year but it's much less than miniscule.

    Overall, given colognes, EdTs, EdPs and extraits, I'd estimate I go through at least 500-700 mls a year of fragrance. Maybe more considering I sometimes wear one fragrance earlier in the day and something else in the evening. Fortunately I am in no danger of running dry!

    A few hundred ml during a year, roughly and very approximately estimated.

    Not that much.

    Default Re: how much do you wear per year

    Probably around 300 ml, give or take. ETA: Long ago I gave up trying to conserve scents, so now I just spray with abandon and reapply whenever I feel it is necessary.

    Probably around 500ml.

    Usually 2 sprays per day, sometimes different perfume at night. Then it ll be something between 50 and 80 ml per year. Not that much.

    Default Re: how much do you wear per year

    Figure on average about 8 sprays equal 1ml.

    I spray myself about 5 to 6 times a day (application and reapplication)

    I do this about 325 days out of the year, so....

    Approximately 243 mls per year, or around 2 and a half full size bottles a year.

    if world war three ever happens, hednic would be able to re-start civilization with all of the fragrances in his bomb shelter.

    Around 400ml for me, at least it's what I want to believe, so I can buy 4 new bottles every year.

    It's an interesting question. In a sense, it's hard to answer due to the plethora of variables. How strong is the scent? How long does it last? How strong is the sprayer? Etc etc etc.

    If I had to guess, I'd guess that I go through 2 oz per year (I'm a 3 to 4 spray guy) but it really depends on the sprayer. Creed sprayers waste a lot of liquid because they produce such a powerful yet fine mist (not to mention the sweet PWWWWSHSHSHS!!! sound) a good portion of which is lost to the air. If I only wore Creed, I'd easily go through twice as much juice per year. On the other end of the spectrum, if I only wore Interlude Man, I'd probably struggle to go through even 1 oz per year because 1 spray of that stuff, applied as 2 half sprays, is still crazy strong and lasts lasts lasts.

    2 oz is my best guess, but that's just for scents I wear. If you include test sprays... holy cow, the number would be so much higher.

    Default Re: how much do you wear per year

    I mostly wear 2 or 3 sprays, 4 to 5 with some weaker fragrances (and wear these less often). I can estimate up to 80 mls get used in a year. Which is awfully miniscule, considering the number of bottles I own. I cannot remember when I had to throw away an empty bottle...

    This question is very sobering, I must say!

    Default Re: how much do you wear per year

    I use approx 1.5 ml to 2 ml daily x 330 days a year somewhere near 495-660 ml total ( about 35 days yearly no perfume use)

    I take it hednic must own an incredibly large amount of fragrances? Too many to be contained in a single wardrobe I would imagine.

    Default how much do you wear per year

    Wtf... 1ml is like 8-10 sprays

    I use probably 3 spray a day, so about 1000 sprays a year.

    Less than 100ml a year.

    Those using 500ml or more? You use it to cook or what? That's like 20 sprays a day...

  21. #21

    Default Re: how much do you wear per year

    I normally spray 8-10 times, so at 1ml per day, about 365 per year, plus the few extra I spritz on days I wear some to bed... maybe 400-500ml per year.

    I'm probably at 400 year.

    I have to reapply those summer ones like non other and that pulls things up a bit.

    Default Re: how much do you wear per year

    3 to 5 sprays per day depending on the fragrance selected so I suppose I do consume about 125 to 150ml per year.

    This is interesting. At this point, I tend to put on less as I'm afraid to use it all up! I think I may be a hoarder.

    I'm in awe of those that are using 500ml a year or more.
