    This week I finished my bottle of Chanel No. 19 EDT. I shall buy a backup bottle

    I shall also finish the remaining of Les Parfums de Rosine Ecume de Rose before Christmas.

    I just sold my half bottle of Tom Ford Black Orchid Vol de Fleur - old love has fallen apart.

    It took me two years to downsize my collection to just above 50 bottles. I am in the middle of documenting, sorting my pile of samples.

    Last bottle I finished was a 50ml bottle of CK Euphoria. That was about 18 months ago, I think. I mostly used it as an inoffensive work scent. I don't think any bottles I currently own are anywhere near the end. I still have a 100ml Hugo Boss splash that I bought in 2006 that's still half full!

    l've recently finished bottles of Jasmin Noir & Ghost.

    l still have the purse spray of Jasmin Noir that came in a set, & l'd already bought a back-up of Ghost, this time in the 100ml bottle. lt was only when l got it out of the box that l realised this bottle is HUGE, it towers over the rest of my collection! l really love it though, so l'm pleased l won't be running out anytime soon.

    A 3.4 ounce bottle of Prada Amber Pour Homme. Used it as a room sprayer for the guest restroom, it smells very well sanitized. Won't be repurchasing a bottle of it ever again.

    Myrurgia vintage Maderas de Oriente in "locion" formula, the big bottel to the left. I still have the "perfume de tocador" formulation. The locion is gamier, a dirty sandalwood if you will. I used this most often sprinkled into bathwater, and that is how I finished today. There is something I love about Spanish perfumery. Jonesing lately on Magn soap by LaToja.

    What a great thread teardrop!!!!!!!

    Realised that recently I put a bottles of Ambre Extreme by L'artisan and Ambre Precieux by Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier at the back of my cupboard as I was going through them so quickly.

    The perfumes I have I like to revisit. They are like my library ....I don't know if I will ever completely read Resurrection by Toltsoy again, or everything by Proust.......but I know I will want to read parts of them.

    There are about ten perfumes or so I know I have to have back up of as I wear them so often....Coco, Tient de neige, Chanel No 22, Rozy,Carillon pour un ange, Coze, Nahema, Vol de Nuit, Saffron Rose, Poal, Fille en Anguilles, Ambre Sultan, Poudre de Ritz, L'ombre fauve, L'humaniste and Liturgies des heures.

    About to finish Graciella by Tocca...love the bottle but it is not like Stella or Cleopatra ....so it will probably go.

    Have this feeling Nanban by Arquiste is going to join the *must have back up* .......it's just so beautiful!

    Will report in when the next bottle is finished.

    Again a great thread teardrop...thank you !

    My bottle of vintage Eau d'Hadrien (what was left of it) has turned, so that's finished. I snoozed and lost. No backup available: seriously contemplating Guerlain Aqua Allegoria of some kind as consolation. Not the same at all, I know, but taking it as a sign to move on.

    The last, last, last drops of Caron Acaciosa extrait (discontinued, I understand). Finishing this festive scent on my birthday seems just right.

    Finished the 14 ml travel spray of 1740 Marquis de Sade that I had.

    Excellent perfume, but the sillage seems to die quickly after one hour.

    Will not repurchase.

    There is no doubt in my mind that the last quarter of any bottle needs to be finished off! Moreso if not a spray. I've taken to finishing off the very last in an flurry of daily, lavish use. Nothing like a festive send-off!

    I have not actually finished them yet, but the goal is in my sights and I am determined to accomplish it. I have a partial bottle of Cuir Beluga and Angelique Noire that are getting old and I fear they will go off as the color has gotten quite dark and the smell is slightly altered. I am bathing in them before bed and drifting off in a sweet cloud every night now. Will report when the last ml has been sprayed, goal is by April 27 when I head back to Montrêal for the summer. I have not finished a bottle in many years so this will be cause for celebration!

    Yesterday I finished Villoresi Sandalo, a vintage bottle.
    I'm OK with finishing a lot of my fragrances, just have a hard time letting the pretty bottles go. But I've learned to say goodby and put them in the recycling bin (after a proper goodbye and a last sniff from the sprayer). I don't want to accumulate a lot of stuff I don't use even if they're pretty and decorative. I would send them to interested people but the postage fees are unreasonable.

    This week I almost finished a 1.7 oz bottle of vintage Villoresi Vetiver. By almost I mean I gave the last few millimeters to a good friend of mine. He's a vetiver fan and I just wanted him to experience it. But anyway it's now gone (whispers: and I kinda miss it ugh).
