    Default Re: A need for Back Up

    I have about 60 different bottles in my wardrobe and about another 95 of said bottles on back up. Pretty much all vintages, discontinued etc..., no need for back ups of current stuff unless it's on an easy trade or a crazy sale of something I use pretty heavy.

    Thankfully we can get a heads up here if there is any chance of a current being discontinued or if there has been a significant reform over time. Otherwise I'm going to need to think about getting a storage unit. Lol

    Happiness is knowing I have enough backups of my favorite juice(s) to a) wear for the duration of my existence and b) be embalmed with.

    My appetite has changed over the years, so I find I have lost interest in most fragrances that I used to love.
    The stuff I love (both old and new), I have backup bottles of. Especially stuff that is limited.

    If you love it, duplicate it. There is a chance you will grow out of it or get over it, but an equal chance you will miss it later.

    The stuff that's discontinued, I'm trying to get backups for those.
    Others, I try to get a backup if the bottle is dropping below the halfway point. Like my POLO, my current bottle is about 2/5ths full. So I grabbed a new bottle about a month ago.

    Another good reason for backup is many perfumes benefit from aging: Chanels, Muglers, Lutens—these are some examples of likely brands. I’m sure there must be many more.

    FiveoaksBouquet, your signature is yet another valid reason to buy multiple backups!!

    Yes, indeed. That quote is by a lady who was caught up in the Boxer Rebellion and could not access her perfume sources. A cautionary tale!

    Wow! But why do you need so many backups?! You realize you'll never wear them all?
    I personally have only one backup on 50ml fragrance only because second one was dirt cheap
