    Yes, Hednic. I bought a backup bottle of it in Paris back in March. Thanks for asking; it's a staple:

    BTW: Have a wonderful trip to France if you decide to go there again this summer. Such a beautiful city fraught with friendly people.

    Just finished my purse spray of Jasmin Noir. l've enjoyed this one, but don't feel the need to replace it.

    I polished off a little lot of Estee Lauder Private Collection. Some years ago, I purchased 3 older EDP minis and two vintage cologne sprays. One of the cologne sprays was badly off, so that one got tossed. Gave one EDP mini to a friend. I kept and used the rest; this morning's drops of EDP were the last of it. Would love to repurchase this one in vintage extrait.

    Yesterday I polished off a bottle of Cheap & Chic I Love Love by Moschino. It's sort of a grapefruity answer to D&G Light Blue. But more fizzy and fun and without being a huge sillage monster. I use it like a body spray on warm days and it never seems to get overpowering.

    Since I'll probably use another bottle this summer, I already had a backup bottle on-hand from the clearance area at TJ Maxx. ($15!)
    My only regrets in life are the people I haven't stood up for,
    and the perfumes I've thrown away.

    Wow. I have never finished a full bottle of anything. I tend to sell anything I have lost interest in, and buy back-up bottles of my true loves.

    I have used up many, many decants and samples though.

    I believe the teardrop shaped minis are extrait; they certainly smell and wear identical to the extrait I pnce had in the purse sized "flame" flacon. I just searchebay with "EL private collection mini" and got many results, most under $10.

    I finished my bottle of Lorenzo Villoresi Donna.

    I got a partial of this in a blind swap. I love roses, and I like the powdery rose in the drydown, but you have to navigate past a pretty sour/fruity rose to get there. One partial was enough.

    Love this thread--love especially the first post. I have...well, "hoarding tendencies" seems excessive, now that reality TV has shown us what that can really mean. I have a tendency to save up the last bits for a special occasion. (I went to England in 1989 at age 15, discovered the body shop, and SAVED that bar of coconut soap for like 4 years, using it once every few months.) But I'd rather avoid that, and enjoy, and then get new things to love.

    That said, I haven't used up much...a purse spray of Light Blue, and a mini of L'Occitane Jasmin & Bergamote. But I HAVE used up lots of samples and decants, and I'm getting much better at just pouring the .7 all over instead of trying to make it last for 2 wearings. So...progress!

    My first No.5 EDT that I ever bought, the beauty of which I discovered thanks to the much-missed Warum. 3.4 oz from 2011 and I wear this very often. Excellent mileage for my money.

    Mind you, this doesn't help get my collection down at all; I've bought backups of backups of this since I bought that first bottle.

    The Indult Tihota bottle from the sampling pass has recently been depleted which means I'll need to splurge on a bottle.

    I'm sorry, I don't know how I missed this! The little minis I had were rather teardrop shaped, and did have stickers on the bottom stating EDP. This version is also very, very good and I could be happy with more of those. But who knows, maybe these bottles were also used for parfum? That would be quite a treat at that price! Hopefully I'm not too late; will have a look around. Very belated thanks, jujy!

    Poor N.Cal, ouch! Nice to know the sample pass bottle was thoroughly loved, though!

    I cannot recall when I finished anything last time. Maybe a few samples, but not full bottles.

    CC, no need to yet as I still have four bottles waiting in the wings! Are you a fan of Eau de Charlotte? It's not very discussed.

    Glad to hear you have plenty of juice left. I really liked Eau de Charlotte when I tried it but I didn't want to wear right away so I never purchased it. I'm ready to order some samples & there are two Annick Goutal perfumes that I'd like to sample/resample - Eau de Charlotte & L'Ile au Thé.

    Two favourites! Looking forward to your impressions.

    Finished my bottle of Shalimar Vanille Mexique. Since it was a limited edition & it's getting hard to find, I'm not going to bother with replenishing this perfume.

    Well, not exactly today, but over the course of last few months... I just never got around to posting

    Ok, here we go...

    Givenchy Organza 1.7 Oz - This was my second bottle, first one was a beginning of a very beautiful friendship, but I don't know yet if I will replenish.

    Parfums de Nicolai L'Eau Chic 1 Oz - Will be getting another, but not very soon.

    Guerlain Shalimar 1.7 Oz This was 80's vintage EdT which my mister helped me finish, to be fair. I have EDP still and might repurchase EdT again.

    Chanel No 5 EdT 1.2 oz - took me forever, but after experiencing French version I realized that American made is not half bad.You were right PerfumedLady! Will repurchase.

    10 ml decant of Tauer's Incense Rose - Took me forever as well. I will repurchase in half ounce travel size, full bottle is just way too much.
