    In terms of aftershaves I always thought a guy only needed 2, maybe 3, tops. And at one time that was all I owned. And now I have 15 and 3 more in the mail. I think I might have a problem...aftershave acquisition disorder. But I am not seeking treatment, only affirmation that there is always room for one more.

    I had to go and count ..... I stopped counting at 20.


    With duplicates maybe 50-60. :shocked029:

    Your secret is good with me/us. I think we can all safely admit we have a secret stash of extras in a drawer somewhere out of sight.

    16. I had to go and count too, and @Enrico I know your wife. (2 of these statements are true, can you guess the false one? :).

    I must have, at a minimum 50 different aftershaves with 3 more on the way.

    I was thrilled when I found my first bottle of Shulton Old Spice. It does have a slightly different scent from the modern P&G version. Then I found a second Shulton. Think I have 4 or 5 bottles now, and AS & cologne in the Leather scent. I no longer look for it. Proraso Red & Green lotion, and the Blue balm. 4 or 6 Pinaud products, a dozen vintage Avons (but I don't collect the bottles, just the juice). When I bought a full sized puck of Stirling soap I got the matching AS. It was my second set after the LE Jeeves soap and AS. I don't count the Ginger's Garden soap as "set" since the M&L Florida Water matches but is made by different companies. Or the Route 66 Barbershop Hop soap & Canoe AS & cologne.

    I'm less scatter brain about it now. Working on making matching scent soap and AS. You didn't ask about how many soaps I have. :cool:

    I have a plan for a nice soap&AS match, for late summer(to add to the many cold-weather sets). That's the way to do it...match em up.

    Wow...just wow! Any chance of a picture. You might need a wide angle lens with that many.

    image.jpg Just got in the mail THB SR-71 Slant Razor and Rich Man Shaving Espresso Shot 30mm synthetic brush. This brush is the largest I own and the razor is the heaviest safety razor I own weighing in at 5.1 ounces!

    I got up to around 127 and then I got interrupted and didn’t want to start over.
    I was only counting full sizes (no samplers or travel) and I only counted one if I had A/S and balm the same. I also didn’t count colognes, EDT’s, toilet water, extra stock, etc..
    I didn’t count museum stuff which might only get rare usage or isn’t usable. Same goes for stuff I don’t like but maybe it’s part of a collection or in a unique decanter.
    And then there’s probably a few in storage that isn’t readily accessible.
    So, I guess I have a few dozen total maybe.

    I only own 2, but I'm going to start growing that. I'm going to pick my favorite scents and get the matching aftershaves, starting with B&M Seville.

    Most of the ones I own are classics, old spice, brut AV, etc. I do have a few adidas ones since they were on sale at Christmas time.
    Probably in the realm of 15-20. I rotate through them however, so I'm not sure of the exact count at this moment.
