    Default Candidates for Backup Bottles in my Collection

    I am considering taking Escentual's 25% discount promotion as an opportunity to buy backup bottles in case of re-formulation for fragrances in my collection. I am excluding ones that are already re-formulations or I have already bought backup bottles for like Dior Sauvage EDT.

    I was wondering if of these are worthy for backup bottles purely on speculation of re-formulation:

    Carolina Herrera CH Privé for Men EDT
    Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme EDT
    Chanel Allure Homme Sport EDT
    Dior Homme Intense EDP
    Dolce & Gabbana The One For Men EDP
    Dunhill Icon EDT
    Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gio Profumo
    Jean Paul Gaultier Ultra Male EDT
    Montblanc Individuel EDT
    Prada L'Homme EDT
    Thierry Mugler A*Men Pure Malt EDT
    Valentino Uomo Intense EDP
    Versace Pour Homme EDT
    Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Extreme EDP
    Yves Saint Laurent Nuit de L'Homme EDT

    Any suggestions welcome please.

    Many thanks!

    I might worry about future discontinuation of Pure Malt if you truly love it. It started as a limited release, then was brought back. So, you never know.

    Depending on how badly you want or need backups of them, worthy IMO any of the ones below :

    Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme EDT
    Chanel Allure Homme Sport EDT
    Dior Homme Intense EDP
    Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gio Profumo
    Jean Paul Gaultier Ultra Male EDT
    Montblanc Individuel EDT
    Thierry Mugler A*Men Pure Malt EDT
    Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Extreme EDP
    Yves Saint Laurent Nuit de L'Homme EDT

    Backup the one you enjoy wearing the most. Speculating on fragrances is a futile exercise IMO.

    Based on reform...

    Spicebomb Extreme, Acqua di Gio Profumo perhaps, and Ultra Male. I've already sold off a 2nd bottle of Ultra Male because it seemed weaker than the 1st bottle I had.
