    Default How many bottles have you bought in the last few months?

    I started "collecting" fragrances in May of this year. Started with Savauge (I've still got the full bottle) and took off from there. Here's a simple video of my humble collection minus the 11 more that have come in since this was recorded.


    This is a video, sorry I couldn't figure out how to embed it here

    I don't keep track but my guess would be close to 100.

    I put 4 to 10, mostly small bottles of old fragrances from eBay.

    I have bought 2 bottles in the last 3 months. I have a feeling the next 3 months will net many more

    Honestly, with how easy it is to get samples and decants, I almost never buy full bottles anymore unless I find some sort of crazy deal. I have probably enough bottles to last my entire life as is. Nowadays its almost always just decants.

    I'm proud to say only 1.

    I've been trying to curb my buying, and only recently started having some success.

    I found this way easier to do once I got into decants. Still scratches my shopping addiction itch, but much more cost-effecient.

    Looking over my shelf, it looks like around thirty including a few I haven't received yet. So, more than I thought, but not as many as it could be!

    I don't but new bottles too often. I like to have a pretty small wardrobe anyways. I tend to be quite the minimalist.

    l've only bought two bottles since June. My buying has slowed down a lot in recent years, & l'm another who finds that decants often scratch that itch quite nicely.

    Six bottles in three months:

    Three were replacements due to using up scents in the “permanent collection” (2 Nuit de Cellophane, Mon Guerlain)

    Two were unexpected thrift-store finds (Sycomore, Vétiver Oriental)

    And one was a planned venture into new territory (Naughty Fruity)

    Since the middle of June I bought 4 bottles and several minis.

    2 bottles of Narciso Rodriguez For Her L'Absolu, a bottle of Gucci Guilty Absolute pour femme, a replacement bottle of Salvador Dali (now called Dali Classic) PDT, as my small pen-bottle is getting emptier and even started leaking, and I found this one for very cheap.

    Also, a mini of Salvador Dali Le Roy Soleil (amazing blind buy, bought several more as replacements and/or to give out as gifts), Salvador Dali Itislove (a very unsuccessful blind buy, at least it was very cheap and only 15 ml) and a set of Agent Provocateur 5 ml minis to test them out as testers are unavailable anywhere around (original AP. Lace Noir and Blue Silk).

    I think I still fit into 4–10 bracket. I plan to buy a bit less in the future, I don't want my wardrobe to explode. The hardest part is to pass up good deals for minis in discounters for scents I would like to try out. They do not cost much and don't take up too much space, but that might accumulate quickly, and I feel a bit stuck when I don't even like the scent.

    0 bottles in the last few months.
    After I have acknowledged that I'm starting to have a problem with buying too much perfume (probably ~15 bottles a year) tight with a very low budget due to buying a house, having a kid, buying a car etc. I have started to focus on sampling. And with all this sampling, I have become very picky with what I'd like to buy. I have bought 2 bottles in the last 3 years and I have split both, so the expense was quite low in the end.
    Of course I have a wish list and from time to time it's itching me to buy, but I'm resisting. I really want Malle French Lover and Houbigant Iris des Champs though...

    The last few months? 0! Lots of samples though, looking for that homerun

    Correction again: Back to six because I had to return Naughty Fruity due to a seeming allergic reaction.

    I selected “who’s counting?” because there was no option for over 10. I do count them up from time to time- I’m not sure how many exactly, but I know it’s over 10 the last three months.
