    Default Anything you need to replenish right now?

    Two scents I wear a lot that are running low are Angel edp and Chanel No 5 edt. Will need to buy more within the next few weeks.

    What are the scents you don’t want to run out of that need to be restocked?

    Bonheur and Coup de Foudre.

    My roja dove Kuwait bottle has 2/3 remaining but the 1/3 gap is already making me feel edgy.

    Understandable for sure. I start to get edgy at around half full, which feels more like half empty.

    For myself right now: nothing to very little - the filling level of most fragrance bottle owned (even the ones without backups) being quite high

    Needing to replenish and not wanting to run out of something aren't exactly the same, :P.

    I definitely get that hoarding mentality where I want to get more than one bottle of something.

    As far as actually running low... nope, not on any bottles at the moment!

    My first bottle of Areej - Russian Oud is between 1/3 and 1/2 full. My second (and last) bottle is untouched. Such a peculiar, mildly uncomfortable feeling every time i spray it. I feel like both bottles will be gone in 6 months when in reality it has taken me almost a year to get the first bottle to 40% empty.

    Unless I originally only have a small amount of something, I usually don't replenish at all. When it's gone it's gone and I move on to something new. Having enough bottles and decants at hand to rotate, I don't often run out of anything anyway.

    No, nothing running empty right now. What I'd like to buy is perfume I don't own.

    My bottle of Divin Enfant is rapidly diminishing so I have another on the way, my first bottle for 2019.

    Nothing to replenish per se, but definitely a few vintages to back up before scalpers get to them. A few have painfully already doubled in price since I bought my first so I'm looking to secure "my take" before price gouging seals me out of them forever. The associated stress and anxiety is part of why I'm sliding over a bit more into niche and modern, so I can take my time acquiring what I want instead of "chasing the dragon". This vintage haul will be one of probably just 2 for 2019 before retreating into vintage Avon again and focusing on the niche houses I like.
    oh look, I have a signature

    One place I have seen vintage Avon is in thrift stores. I don’t collect it but some of the bottles, especially of the men’s colognes are like sculptures. I did buy one for the bottle, a polar bear on an ice floe.

    Additional bottles of Shalimar Ode a la vanille Mexique and Madagascar. This would justify to owning 2x 50ml bottles of each fragrance which would be equivalent to a full size 100ml Shalimar bottle.

    Guerlain Vetiver, Fahrenheit, Eau Sauvage. But at this point I have so much other stuff that would just be stupid, so barring an amazing price or hitting the lottery. (I will do it for Antaeus when that runs out... Don't have anything that fills that particular gap in the collection)
    In rotation: YSL PH HC, Devin, Aramis 900, Halston 1-12, CdNIM, Helmut Lang Cologne, et al.

    Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille. I’m down to my last 4 ml. But talks of reformulation have kept my wallet shut.

    Thankfully, I'm in good shape.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    To stay on topic, hmm, I probably am going to get another 30cc bottle of Nicolai New-York soon. The one I have is passing halfway, and 15 cc is not a lot of jus.
