    Cleaned house - divested off bottles that no longer were getting worn or appreciated. A number vintage acquisitions took their place but managed to stay under 50. It be nice to get down to 40.

    Sort of have been having this idea as well on the mind, lately When I retire, the 88, 89 backups will be far more valuable and I can just keep one and sell others

    This is actually right. I almost have every year covered, except a few. As well as some limited editions.

    I have around 120 to 150 full bottles. I am quite satisfied with my collection. It is heavy with the classics.

    Something over 500 bottles back-ups inclusive.
    I have decided to drastically reduce my collection to a max. of 45-50 perfumes (not 50 bottles, just 50 perfumes).
    My top 20 perfumes will always remain in my collection. The rest of them will be subject of reevaluation.
    I still get surprised from some of the new stuff out there (rarely i must admit) so i suppose that some of the non top 20 perfumes in my list will be replaced in the years to come.

    Probably 400 bottles at this point and 100+ attars.

    I have been on a buying spree last 3 months mostly on vintage.
    FYI: I spray all fragrances on clothing, never on skin.

    Close to 300 bottles at the moment. I can see I have had a sniffer problem. But I really get a boost during the day wearing various scents.

    I'm not sure really. At my last count, it was in the 500's. I am dispatching some to sell and giving others away that I no longer appreciate. I'm setting a goal to get down to 20 or less. I obviously don't post my SOTD regularly nor my purchases due to time constraints. However, I'm just a regular guy and hope to get it down and wear what truly enthralls me instead of the others sitting in an abyss of neglect.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I currently have over 670 scents available to wear. That includes full bottles, samples (not all are listed in my wardrobe), and decants. More than enough for the rest of my life.
    When I was young, we called it "personal space", not, "social distancing" like nowadays. Actually, shouldn't it be called Public distancing?
