    Infallible logic!

    My serious guess is 12 per season.

    Haha...there's actually a reason behind it. This year I bought this really nice (well...Ikea nice) upright cabinet with a solid wooden door on the lower half and a clear glass door as the upper half. I bought it just for my fragrances. Anyway, the shelves on the bottom half are easy to access but not exactly easy to view from a normal upright position, so I decided there's really no sense in keeping my bottles there. But there are three shelves in the upper half that are basically right at eye level and easy to reach/display. On each shelf I can comfortably fit 16 bottles (four rows of four), they're spaced out nicely so that it's not too cramped and most are fairly easy to see. So, 3 shelves with 16 bottles on each...48 bottles. Right now I'm using the 3 bottom shelves for stuff I'm selling off, but once that's gone I'll probably just keep my boxes down there.

    Keep on learning and exploring. Buy less, because I already have enough, and when I do, buy the things I love instead of "oh, it's quite a nice mini, might do for this summer" or "it costs next to nothing, so why not to get some joy out of it", because I already have enough of these. (Though I'll allow me some cheap thrills to keep it interesting - but not too often.) Finish the bottles and minis that I love less to make more space and time for the ones I love more. Keep on updating wears on SOTD feature, because I'm interested in seeing how the numbers shape up after a while and what they show me about my habits and preferences. Write more reviews/impressions. I see quite a lot of things that I test or often wear are lacking in reviews - my nose is far from the best or the most experienced, but at least some opinion on a perfume page is better than none. Also, it's nice to see these notes later to remind you of the scent and what you thought about it.

    I do actually plan on wearing the best stuff more often. Burn, baby, burn.
    What happened to the ChuckW who was strict on the 30 bottle limit?

    My goal is to buy nothing, only add fragrances by receiving them as gifts from my husband. :-) I’m not overly optimistic but I’m going to try.
