Then, once shopping malls and big box retailers proved more convenient, people dropped their Avon out here the states and moved into designers since every town had a Macy's or Penny's. Avon had to go downmarket to compete on price point, and that was the nail in the cheapo coffin they now share with old Revlon, Coty, and Dana perfumes.

    However, my next-biggest backup horde may surprise you:

    Azzaro, Van Cleef & Arpels, Rochas, and assorted Chanel.

    Pretty much the only backup for me, too. I have 2 vintage ones I save for when I feel extra saucy, and then just get whatever is on the shelf for my daily wear and tear.

    Someone earlier said Midnight In Paris, which I have a few bottles of but never wear, so I don't know if I would so much say they are "backup" as much as "maybe I will make a few pretty pennies off of these previously $15 purchases that I decided I really didn't enjoy".

    Other than that, with the ones I wear very frequently, I might have two bottles of as making little overnight bags n whatnot they can get lost in the mix sometimes.

    So I don't have time to consume everything I buy.
    It makes no sense to back up.

    I think Fahrenheit is down to around 260 ml, but there are 5 bottles (100 ml, 50 ml, 50 ml, 30/100 ml, 30/50 ml)

    I have a few with around 250 ml.
    A year later:

    Pour Monsieur is up to around 400 ml.

    At 300 ml, Bois Noir and Antaeus have been joined by Egoiste, Antaeus Sport, and Jules.

    I've recently decided Versace L'Homme and Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree are twin scents when I wear them (although not in the openings), and I have about 150 ml of each - so I also have 300 ml of mossy patchouli and vanilla.

    For some other favorites, I'm at around 250 ml - which can be one or five bottles.

    I've got 2 bottles of a couple of things, one by winning 2 auctions simultaneously, and one by forgetting I had something and buying it again, but otherwise I don't buy back-ups. Every backup bottle could be a new bottle of something else. Of course you run the risk of a favourite scent being discontinued and then you're screwed, but there's always a new favourite to find. That's just me working on a limited budget though, I mean if you've got the dough or are a real serious collector, best of luck!

    Only 1, it's a back-up bottle of JPG Le Mâle and I'm using it. My older bottle (10-15yo) has a different formulation imo.

    Was the EdT actually completely transparant 10 years ago like it is now? Anyway the color on my old one went ambery brown.

    And then, not really a back-up, but I have a clone of JPG Ultra Mâle, Zara Gourmand Leather, to back the real one up.
