Today we will draw aside the curtains and take a peek behind.
How many bottles of perfume do you currently own?
What is your number?
Is it too little, too many? Are you happy with your collection? What would you like to add, what should go?
At this moment I own 104 bottles of perfume.
I know it is too many. Aside from the fact that non-perfume people think this is nothing short of insanity, I don’t feel good admitting to such a number.
My goal is to reduce to the basics, to the bottles I don’t want to live without.
I am at a point in my perfumed life where I want to stop experimenting and rather wear what I have and re-buy my favorites that get depleted by daily use.
What is my ideal number then? I’m not sure yet, but a bit less than half would suffice. Eventually a core wardrobe of only around ten bottles seems to be my goal.
What about you? What’s your real and what’s your ideal number?
