    I am up 6. My birthday and Labor Day shopping has bloated my collection a bit, so I sit at 59 bottles ( not 30, who would pick such a low target?...not 60, isn't that 1 too many?).

    But I kid...I'm a kidder!

    I found the same, since quarantine I've been going through houses I always wanted to explore as kind of a hobby and it has resulted in a lot more purchases than usual. First it was Chanel and I ended up with No. 18, 1957 and Paris-Deauville. Next was Hermes and I got a 4 15ml set, full bottle of Rose Ikebana on the way, and Neroli Dore from the cologne series. I figure what else am I going to spend money on while my social life is still rather restricted haha.

    So me for the year
    +6 full bottles (the 3 Chanel, 2 Hermes, and 1 Frederic Malle)
    +7 travel sprays (4 hermes, 3 Frederic Malle 15ml)

    +1 to Samples (Olympea Legend, a sweet and salty boozy vanilla - I decided I probably don't need even a small bottle of it, but a sample is very nice for sweet-and salty, savoury gourmand cravings once in a while).

    I started 2020 with:
    Wardrobe 37 (including minis and travel sprays)
    Samples 11
    Backups 2 (+4 minis)
    My goal this year is -2 in wardrobe and +2/+5 or something along the lines in backups. I have no goals for samples.

    Current wardrobe balance +9 (-17; +26).
    Samples balance: +17 (-5; +22)
    Backups balance: +3
    Currently wearing: Infusion d'Iris by Prada

    +3 to backups, +1 to Samples (Moonlight Patchouli), -1 to Samples (finished Borobudur), +1 to Wardrobe (a 10 ml bottle of Alaia Nude - I already regret this purchase. It should have been a bigger bottle.)

    I started 2020 with:
    Wardrobe 37 (including minis and travel sprays)
    Samples 11
    Backups 2 (+4 minis)
    My goal this year is -2 in wardrobe and +2/+5 or something along the lines in backups. I have no goals for samples.

    Current wardrobe balance +10 (-17; +27).
    Samples balance: +17 (-6; +23)
    Backups balance: +6
