    Default Re: What's your wardrobe's number-of-perfumes to number-of-houses ratio?

    Full bottles only; 107 fragrances across 43 houses, so 2.49:1.

    Highly represented brands are:

    Serge Lutens, 14
    Hugo Boss, 9
    Mugler, 9
    Guerlain, 9
    Dior, 7
    L'Artisan Parfumeur, 6

    The rest I usually only have 1-2 of.

    No exact statistics, but I have a ton of Serge Lutens, Guérlain, L’Artisan, Frédéric Malle, Tauer, and Kilian.

    Those higher represented of houses drive up the ratio. I'm in the same boat.

    Indeed. I just had a quick squizz at copying my wardrobe into Excel and this is what I came up with; more than half of the houses I own, I own only one fragrance of, with the ratio then changing exponentially:

    4711 - 1
    Anna Sui - 1
    Atelier Cologne - 1
    Bond No. 9 - 1
    Bottega Veneta - 1
    Bulgari - 1
    Burberry - 1
    Cartier - 1
    Estée Lauder - 1
    Etat Libre d'Orange - 1
    Heeley - 1
    Hermès - 1
    Lavanila - 1
    Montale - 1
    Nasomatto - 1
    Odin New York - 1
    Prada - 1
    Rouge Bunny Rouge - 1
    Shiseido - 1
    Truefitt & Hill - 1
    Vera Wang - 1
    Yves Saint Laurent - 1
    Body Shop - 2

    Ooh, fascinating.

    My my wardrobe isn’t so up to date, but it says 51 fragrances with 26 houses, so a ratio of 1.96. My collection is relatively heavy on Dior and CdG.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    If you had 75 frags from 50 houses, the ratio would be 1.5 to 1.
    75 ÷ 50 = 1.5

    So, Zealot, with 324÷123 has the ratio of 2.63 to 1.
    Right?

    A ratio of 2.43 or 204 fragrances across 85 houses.

    As an amateur anthropologist (and aren't we all exactly that?), I find your reactions to your own statistics kind of amusing, like watching a toddler study themself in a mirror.

    Full bottles?
    Very close to 1:1, thirteen bottles from 11 houses (two Guerlain). This is in flux, slowly, the only houses I've had multiple bottles at the same time from are:

    Guerlain
    Neil Morris

    I try to achieve two objectives with the little collection - stay around 12 bottles, and always have Mure Et Musc Extreme and Reglisse Noire.

    there are often a metric shit ton of samples in the box, too. For variety.

    I am sorry for probably a very stupid question, but what do you consider as full bottles?
    100 ml only? Any official bottle, including 30, 50, 75 ml, excluding travel sizes and minis?

    If it's 100 ml bottles only then I'm a proud owner of two and they're both singletons.
    Probably half of my wardrobe consists of mini sized bottles and I like it that way. I consider some of my samples as part of my wardrobe and don't consider some of my bottles as part of my wardrobe even though they're listed here as I'm not exactly using them and they will be most likely given away when I find someone happy to receive them, that makes this excercise quite difficult. Basically it's still too early to say something about my wardrobe as it still needs quite a lot of shaping that will only come naturally with time - finishing or giving away bottles I don't like that much (mostly gifts), finishing or getting rid of minis I bought treating them as samples and didn't love that much and getting my hands on several things I truly love with finding more great things along the way.
    But yeah, I tend to like some houses more than others and if I'm really crazy about some fragrance I'm likely to love something else from the same house, too. With unlimited finances and shelf space I would probably own about half of what Molinard, Hermes and Narciso Rodriguez has to offer. Gucci Guilty Absolute is probably the only exception to this rule as I don't think I liked anything else from Gucci enough - but I don't have a bottle of that one (yet) either.

    Good question. Personally, I consider full bottles to be everything that isn't decanted from a third party, a sample, a miniature bottle, or travel size below 20ml.

    Oooh, interesting Q, Mrs. Q!

    60 bottles, over 26 houses.
    11 x 4160 Tuesdays
    10 x Guerlain
    4 x HdP
    3 x MFK
    3 x NR
    3 x FM
    3 x TF
    The rest are all ones or twos. Interesting to note that I think 4160s and Guerlain have something in common, aesthetically...
