    1 of each of the following:

    Gucci PH II
    Armani Prive Oud Royal
    Jubilation XXV
    Epic Man
    24 Gold (x2)
    Bentley Intense
    L'erbolario Dolcelisir
    Gucci Gucci for Men (or whatever it's called)
    Ralph Lauren Safari
    Diaghilev - back up 30ml decant
    Bond Harrods Oud - back up 20ml decant
    Black Afgano
    Kilian Incense Oud
    Kilian Pure Oud
    Kilian Extreme Oud
    Spice and Wood (does having 1 x 250ml count as a back up?)
    Aventus

    I think that's the lot.

    I have sort of given up on backups now. I will add another Armani Oud though. Love that stuff.
    There are also quite a few 50ml bottles with a decant too. Back ups are weird as some come as 50ml bottles, others 100ml, so I could have 2 x 50ml bottles and 1 would be classed as a back up but 1 x 100ml bottle wouldn't. And then you've got the 200ml and 250ml beasts. Meh.

    I have circa backup bottles of 35-38 of my bottles because I got a good price on them and like to have a somewhat wide selection of good designers to bring along with me to work, where I stay at a hotel for 3 night every second week, year round.
    I don't bring niche frags with me for travel, so all my backups are designers (except for one) - I can remember these:

    Ysl L'Homme
    Ysl La Nuit
    Dior Homme
    Dior Homme Intense
    Chanel Egoiste
    Chanel Platinum Egoiste
    Kiton Men
    Lolita Midnight Oud
    Aramis Havana
    ZINO Davidoff
    Carolina Herrera CH
    Thallium Black
    Versace PH
    Versace Man Eau Fraiche
    Ysl Kouros
    Jpg LE Male
    Chanel Bleu EDT
    Creed GIT (only niche I have backup of)
    Mugler Cologne
    Lalique Encre Noir
    Van Cleef Arpel Midnight in Paris EDP
    Ysl Rive Gauche
    Ysl Body Kouros
    Armani ADG Essenza
    Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui
    Mont Blanc Individuelle


    Can't remember the rest........

    Not sure of the # of bottles of each of the below, but none more than 3 bottles except 2 - Dior Jules & Chanel Pour Monsieur:


    Vintages:
    Chanel Pour Monsieur - different vintage versions in 4-5 bottles adding up to approx 400ml
    Gucci Pour Homme 1976 edition
    Eau Sauvage edt
    Nina Ricci Phileas
    Christian Dior Jules old version (5-6 bottles X 50ml)
    Nino Cerruti Uomo
    Nina Ricci Signoricci 2
    Guerlain Derby
    Lancome Balafre Monsieur
    Lancome Sagamore
    Balenciaga Pour Homme
    Bogart Furyo
    Shiseido Basala / Basara (have 1 of each)
    Chanel Egoiste


    From current releases:
    Slumberhouse - Ore, Norne & Zahd.
    Bogue Maai



    Future plans:
    Not many, but will be looking to add back up's for Balenciaga Ho Hang, Giorgio Beverly Hills VIP Special Reserve, Chanel Antaeus, Dior Fahrenheit, Armani Eau Pour Homme, Davidoff by Davidoff (1984), Serge Lutens Fumerie Turque, Ettore Buggati edt, l'Humaniste, Gucci Nobile, Gucci Pour Homme (1976), Revillon French Line, Furyo, Santal Noble & Route du Vetiver from Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier, Capucci Punjab, Rochas Moustache & it's concentree version - damn - the list just never stops...bad idea, maybe I should just remove the "to buy back off's" - if not, my aim to not buy anything in Nov might fail

    I've got my back-up bottles down to seven right now. I figured since I have yet to finish one bottle of ANYTHING, it was time to start selling some off

    GPH 1- Two NIB 100ml bottles
    Givenchy Play, two bottles received in trade.
    VC and A- Cologne Noir. Got it for a great price, and so have two. Really like it, but not sure it is back up bottle worthy.

    None. The only scents I plan to repurchase when I run out are Tam Dao and 2 Man.
    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.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    With a good sized collection that I can never finish, back up bottles are simply redundant! But I repeat myself. LOL. I do have back ups of Original M7, Amouage Epic man, Andy Warhol (discontinued) and LIDGE. Can't think of any others...
    1. Epic Man by Amouage (33 wears)
    2. Leather Oud by Christian Dior (31 wears)
    3. M7 by Yves Saint Laurent (27 wears)
    4. Oud Imperial (black) by Perris Monte Carlo (22 wears)
    5. Russian Tea Ritual by Masque (20 wears)
    6. Fate Man by Amouage (19 wears)

    None really. I can’t afford to buy everything I want but don’t own, never mind backups of ones I already have.

    Recently bought Prada Luna Rossa, which I already own, but not sure that counts as the original bottle is almost gone and whilst I was in two minds whether to replace it, the price on my new bottle was too good to resist.

    I've 3 bottles of vintage M7 (one on sale though), 2 bottles of vintage Tiffany for Men, 2 bottles of vintage Equipage, 3 bottles of Jil Sander Man.

    Edit: forgot to add Gucci pour Homme I, got a cracked 100 ml bottle I got for pennies (because of the crack).

    I have 2 backups of Pure Malt.

    1 backup of Rive Gauche in the tin can.

    2 backups of Issey Miyake Summer Edition 2009.

    2 of Burberry London because I believed the rumors that it was discontinued.

    1 backup of Guerlain Homme L'eau (I had 4, but realistically, how much can I really use?)

    1 backup of Dior Homme Sport 2007 version.

    1 of Monsieur Balmain

    1 of Bergamatto Marino

    1 of Arpege Pour Homme

    I would like backups of the following:

    Invasion Barbare
    Eau Sauvage Parfum
    Royal Oud
    1899
    Eau Radieuse
    Uomo (Villoresi)

    But it's going to take some time to acquire these.
    My wardrobe is up to date as of 10/09/17, and anything on my "Swap List" is for sale. You set the price and we'll negotiate from there. Inquire within!
