    Default What fragrance do you have the most back-up bottles of?

    For me it's the Rive Gauche tin can. When I saw that these were becoming extinct, I scooped up at least a dozen.

    Default Re: What fragrance do you have the most back-up bottles of?

    None. And I will never have any back-up.

    I use MAXIMUM 300 ml per year - 3 full bottles.
    This year I bought over 30 full bottles, 100 samples and tested dozens of perfumes. Next year is likely to be the same because I often discover new good perfumes.
    So I don't have time to consume everything I buy.
    It makes no sense to back up.

    That opening is pretty good, eh? I'm trying to sell one of my bottles right now. I have one spray and one splash, but definitely prefer spray. It's the rarer all-black glass version.

    Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Winter Delice - never tried it, not sure whether to open it or flog it,
    L'Artisan Parfumeur Passage d'Enfer - was dirt cheap and I love my 50ml bottle.

    And that's it, really. Not a big believer in backups. Though I might look for one of my favourite fragrances which I think has been ever so slightly reformulated. But we'll see.

    Wow. Can that still be classified as "backup", or has it crossed over into "hoarder" territory?

    Okay, this is decidedly impressive! (I can't even find ONE bottle of Fumerie Turque, much less seven.)

    Never say never lol. I actually had never intended on going hog wild, but in this case, it was a no-brainer. It's something I never want to run out of, and I know that some of my friends here feel the same,. I can help them out, saving them from paying inflated ebay prices.

    Gladly managed to find reasonably priced backups of two truly pretty vintage ones (and I actually wear this stuff ... ):
    Basala Shiseido
    Gainsboro Exception
    Also pretty fond of old bottles of Jungle Elephant.

    Impressive to say the least lol, DHP with that amount enough for a few lifetimes haha. I enjoy spending money on fragrances so I see no harm done although would make a great hoarders episode lol.
