What rules do you have in place to limit the number of bottles of perfume you buy?
Do you have a perfume budget or allow yourself a certain number of bottles a month or year?
Do you perhaps only allow yourself a full bottle of perfume once you’ve finished a decant of it first ?
How is your chosen strategy working out for you and are there exceptions to it?
Or is there no limit on your purchases?
I’m lucky in as much as I don’t fall in love with a new perfume very often, so I don’t yet feel the need to impose a strict monetary budget or particular number of purchases per year. However, I do feel most comfortable with my collection at around the 25 bottles mark. Certainly under 30, anyway. For me, that is a usable amount and a figure I feel OK with. Too keep within that limit I sell the bottles I am tiring of, to make room for more. This may change at some point (probably when I hit 31 bottles!) but right now that works for me.
Now, I know methods for sanctioning and preventing new bottle purchases vary widely from perfumista to perfumista, so please share yours .
