    Default How long does it take you to finish a bottle of ur signature scent

    Took me 2 years and a few months to finish a 6.7 ounce bottle. I was averaging about 3 sprays every time I used it and I wore it almost everyday

    Finishing a 100ml bottle would be a huge effort for most here. Let alone 200ml. Life's too short.

    I'm pretty new to the fragrance game so I've yet to finish a bottle. I've finished some 15ml decants. That took 2-3 years but I had fewer scents then.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.

    I don't have a signature scent, I do have preferred scents. With such an amount of bottles, it will take me years to finish just a 100ml bottle.

    +1. No signature scent and too many bottles. I go through a couple of mls a day on average, so I have enough to last several lifetimes.

    Honestly I have some of the worst skin known to man so i go through fragrance faster than most would. This is probably why I like the heavier denser scents as they last a bit longer. I dont even want to admit how fast I can go through an average bottle.

    I don't think I have ever finished a bottle in my entire life. Even fragrances that I remember getting down to half full, I think that I either threw them away or gave them away. That is my goal next year though. Finish a bottle or decant of something in my collection.

    I own more than 400 fragrances now - most are 100-125ml bottles, few are 50 ml and 75 ml and 200 ml bottles, and I don't have a signature scent.

    Probably will take me 6-8 years to finish one of the fragrances I tend to reach for more often than others.......

    One thing I notice with YouTube reviewers is they are often holding up bottles that have barely been used.

    Back when I had a 'signature scent', as in using the same scent on a daily basis until the bottle was finished, a 100ml bottle would last anywhere from 1-3 months.

    Not more or less than any other fragrances in my "signature rotation", since I do not really have a clear favorite within this rotation. And since I rotate 10-20 or more fragrances more or less regularly, it might take years until one out of increasingly more bottles is finished.

    Just killed off a 30ml. bottle of New York I've had for a number of years. Will get another soon, and I expect that's the only bottle I will ever finish.

    It'll never happen again. I have too many bottles. Back when I had 4 or 5 it would happen. Probably 20 years ago.

    I have 30. You know, they just might go bad. I never hang on to a bottle long enough to tell. I swap or sell just about everything, but I have about 5 that I'll never part with, Lord willing.

    I will not swap or trade.. Personal Experience will answer my question in a few years.

    I finished a 50ml bottle of Terre d'Hermes and a 50 ml bottle of Dior homme sport--was so proud of myself when I did that!--but other than that, I have never finished another bottle and probably never will.

    With my current wardrobe size, ~350 bottles, I doubt I'll be finishing much.

    I do spray about an ml & a half per day (2 wearings).

    I don't have a signature scent. And I have no idea how long it'll take to finish a bottle.

    about 2+ years, assuming I spray a 100mL bottle 3-4 times every day. If I use it occasionally, oh man...who knows...I have a 100mL bottle of YSL Opium I've had for about 10 years now and it's still about 25% left and still smelling great. My signature scent was Chanel Allure Homme before I got into fragrances, and I'm currently on my third bottle, which is about 65% full. Been wearing it for about 8 years now. I;d be wearing my second bottle still if I hadn't dropped it and it broke.

    So wearing scents can take an average of 2+ years, to a decade, to possibly a lifetime to finish.
