When you buy fragrances, do you buy 50ml/100ml?

Just curious here, since you almost always get a better "deal" when you buy the bigger bottle, which size do you go for when you're shopping for cologne/perfume?

its usually marginally more expensive for the 100ml so i get the 100ml, but then again, i only wear a few specific scents so if there was a larger size, i would probably get the larger ones since im goin to use it up anyways.

if you are going to use it, buy it. if not, get the smaller bottle

I just make a pit stop at Shoppers, The Bay, or Sephora when I need to smell all pretty.

And I spend about 30 minutes at different sports stores to get my dumbbell workouts in a few times a week.

That's THE way to go.

I usually get samples and if I like a particular scent and I find that it lasts I go for the big bottle.

50ml, colognes have a life before they lose their scent (aka expiry) you won't be using the 100ml enough before this time and the smell changes. coudl be good/bad but usually just go for 50/75.

i might be entirely wrong though, but that's what ive been hearing from a reliable source.

Colognes can go bad? If that's true, how long do they usually generally last? :confused:

It's true.

I think I remember hearing that after 2 years the perfume starts to lose its scent. But it's not like it "expires" and will cause skin irritation or anything like that... it might smell differently, that's all.

Colognes don't go bad...I have had a couple bottles for almost 5 years and they smell the same.
