    Probably bought about 40 got rid of 50 as I whittled my collection down even further. But of the purchases that I kept I would say I am enjoying jubilation XXV the most.

    Can't keep track. Much too many. Too hard to pick a favorite.

    Added 10, got rid of 13, drained 2.

    So with a few exceptions of mainstays like Straight to Heaven and M7, my collection is basically brand-new this year.

    As for the favorite acquisition: the ever-controversial Leather Oud, with Bamboo Harmony a close second.

    Bought somewhere in the 20-30 range, finished none and in no particular order, Eau des Baux, Mugler Cologne, La Martina Hombre, Giorgio Beverly Hills for Men, Lapidus pour Homme and a few backups of Lancetti Uomo and Heritage are among my favorites

    I think I bought about 30 bottles and I emptied none of my collection. Have 135 bottles now.

    Some of my favorite acquisitions were:
    • Mancera Aoud Black Candy
    • Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur
    • Perris Monte Carlo Rose De Taif
    • Roja Dove Amber Extrait

    If I have to name one I'll stick to Mancera Aoud Black Candy because I discovered the Mancera house in 2015 and Aoud Black Candy is a very nicely done gourmand with a fantastic licorice note. After testing hundreds and hundreds of scents this one had the ability to surprise me in a positive way...

    I'd estimate I've acquired around fifty to sixty in 2015.. maybe more. I'd really need to count.

    Very difficult to choose one. There's so many, and I've really got into the Creed house this year.

    But if I had to choose one, just one, it would probably be Tom Ford Tuscan Leather.

    Cant really but this year was the least since getting into it about 10 years ago.

    I guess about 10 bottles maybe? Maybe a handful more.
    In my defense, 2015 has been the worst year for perfumes in many decades.

    Added 23 bottles, which is definitely a lot but then I added zero bottles in 2013 and 2014 (just got back into the hobby recently).

    My favourite is a toss up between Creed Royal Mayfair and Frederic Malle Carnal Flower. Can't decide.

    Not a lot of buying for me this year, money has been tight. I would say Bel Ami Vetiver and vintage Joop Homme were equally impressive.

    Hope that the year 2016 brings me also nice things!

    .... can not remember the number precisely; about 20 to 25 I guess ... most of them were backups. The ones I like most are Eau Sauvage Parfum & the sadly disc. Lui de Rochas

    Added around 20. My favorite is Obsession Night for Men. I'm not a huge fan of Obsession itself or the flanker Dark Obsession, but I picked this one up after reading it had pear in the top notes because I love pears. The scent was better than I expected, far better. I wish it lasted longer but those first 20-30 minutes are intoxicating. The more expensive fragrances are better for professional or social events that ask for cleaner sophistication but this is the perfect scent to put on in the evening just for myself. It's so good, I had no idea all this time.

    I added seven new FBs:
    31 rue Cambon
    Blue Agava & Cacao
    Bluebell
    Mimosa & Cardamom
    Le Parfum de Therese
    Oud & Bergamot
    Timbuktu

    My favorite is a toss up between 31 rue Cambon and Le Parfum de Therese. Both are stellar!

    I don't own a single niche offering, and have almost no interest in new releases in general. Still, it was another big year of purchases in the "vintage designer" category.
    My favorite of the ones I bought this year is vintage KOUROS. I got two 50ml splash bottles from 1982. This fragrance has given me so much enjoyment, and it's funny to think there was a time, back before I had tried it, that the negative reviews and forum comments had convinced me that KOUROS was not something I would like at all.

    Been wearing fragrances for about 20 years on my own and thought I was pretty well versed until found BN in January 2015. Well, lets jut say 2015 was a very expensive year. 2016 will be much more focused and less bottles. My top 3 finds would be Royal Oud, Rive Gauche and Pure Malt.
