How many bottles of perfume do you own?

I've just been sorting mine out and it's rather a lot. 78 bottles. I will say (in my poor defence!) that my job means I'm sent quite a bit and well, I've clearly bought quite a lot over the years. There's vintage bottles in there too and discontinued perfumes and remarkably - none have gone off

How about you?

About 8.

About 5, all presents.

About 40 full bottles, I'm not counting the samples!

Far too many. Several dozen, at least. I sold quite a few on eBay a few months ago and made a few hundred quid, though.

None. I only wear unscented deodorant.

About 6.

5 now, I think. Two Penhaligons, two Thierry Mugler and a Chanel. I'm very picky with perfume.

About 7 , 2 of them are small sample sizes, but they still seem to last me forever.
Did have a lot more but have a fair few that I didn't like on ebay.

Two, which is one too many. I like to only have one on the go at a time.

5 .
2 ‘every day’
2 ‘going out’ daytime
1 ‘going out ‘ evening

Wow. I thought I had too much and I’m trying to get it down. I have 3. I love perfume, so if I let myself go wild I’d have 78.

A rather embarrassing number. I love perfume! Some of them are dupes for every day use, some are ones like J-Lo and I love 4711 in summer.

Miseryisabutterfly Wed 05-May-21 19:30:18

7, but I only use 2 of them.

2. But only because one is almost empty...

osbertthesyrianhamster Wed 05-May-21 19:30:31

In really hot weather I soak cheap face flannels in 4711 cologne and water and roll them up and put them in snack sized resuable plastic zip bags and put then in the fridge. The kids love to grab one to wipe on their faces.

1. I only like one scent though and it's been discontinued so soon to be 0 sad

Cherrycee Wed 05-May-21 19:33:04

I'm scared to count...

I'd say at least 15 full size and about 10 minis/samples.

In my defence, quite a few of them were gifts.
