    It's still around £20 per 75ml bottle. How much is the "ridiculous discounted" price?

    I probably have about 750 ml worth of vintage Chanel Pour Monsieur. (some splash, some "spray cologne" and EDT's all older. The "youngest" one I have is dated about 2002 (and the only one with Eau de Toilette under the Chanel name).

    Also, I'm beginning to grow my vintage Annick Goutal Eau de Monsieur with two 100 ml bottles of the vintage, one 50 ml of the vintage and one 100 ml of the recent release.

    the M7 collection:
    1 vintage 100 ml bottle
    1 2nd version 100 ml bottle
    1 original apres rasage lotion.
    1 100 ml bottle of M7 Fresh
    1 50 ml bottle of M7 Fresh.

    I have 2-3 bottles of various older Antaeus, Eau Sauvage, Eau Sauvage Extreme, Fahrenheit.

    I could never finish all these, but I like to feel I am rescueing them and giving them a home.

    300 ml Boucheron pour homme edp
    200 ml Montale Black Aoud
    240 ml Mancera Cedrat Boise
    200 ml Montale Aoud Lime

    Probably lots more, but I don't have anything of which I have at least 1 litre!

    It was £10 for 30ml, which for me was ridiculous for me because it smelt so good and lasted for a decent amount of time.
    I looked at getting it again but the ones ive tested dont smell anywhere near as good!

    By accident - YSL La Nuit de L'Homme. I bought 100mL of it then won another 60mL in a raffle, along with the accompanying shower gel and aftershave balm. Tempted to gift the gift set to a family member anyway so that'll undo my backup-bottle situation!
    I'm always looking for/at fragrances so I'm not overly concerned with discontinuations/reformulations. If I don't like how one has been altered, there's still 20 more to get through before all of my current fragrances have been exhausted.

    I have one backup on several of my most used Guerlains and other faves, but I have two backups of Chanel no. 5 Eau Premiere and Quiksilver, the latter for its Australian sandalwood.

    I feared a damaging reformulation of Eau Premiere when the bottle changed, and I also LOVED the tall square bottle. Had to have one of those in spare, plus the new one. Turned out that the change was minimal, IMO.
    I wish I could get more (or better) inside information. I loved the Egoiste from circa Nov 2016 so went and purchased another bottle a few days later -- I mean who knows what might be done to fragrances in a year?

    Creed is a minefield imo

    Really? Wow? So how does one determine if a perfume is 'properly made with no unstable elements'?

    How long should a bottle of Terre d'Hermes pure parfum last, for example?

    When stored properly (out of light and at constant cool-ish temperature) hard to say how long, but certainly decades. I have vintage bottles from the 60s that smell wonderful, better than the stuff out there today. Have one from the forties that has lost its top notes but still good.

    I only have a handful of fragrances backed up because I decided to stop buying backup bottles altogether. I figured at this point in my collection, I’d rather have a wider variety, than more of any given fragrance.

    To answer the question:

    Sarah Jessica Parker Stash. 1 bottle currently going, and two backups. My GF has the same.
