How Many Fragrances is "Too Many"?!

I've gotten into Fragrances and I'm beginning to wonder, how many is too many?

I haven't done a count, but I currently have at least 70-75 bottles, most of them 100ml or more. Say for example.. I wear two daily. A scent of the day and a scent of the evening.. That kind of a collection is still going to last me a long, long time. I find it somewhat difficult to genuinely wear all these fragrances, and my collection is somewhat tiny in comparison to most Basenoters.. Time passes by and many never get a chance to be truly worn..

I'm actually beginning to wonder can I realistically use this amount of fragrance in one lifetime. :p Some bottles I reach for more often than other, obviously. I have my favourites. If I had to pick a dozen for example, I definitely could. Others I buy.. then try.. then stash them away and they're rarely if ever used again. I hear stories about fragrances going "off" over the years, when I hear things like that I begin to worry a little about my more expensive/niche bottles..

I've decided to put the brakes on the whole buying thing. I've covered most bases that I want to really, I feel like anything else that might interest me is too similar to what I already own to warrant buying a full bottle. I'm beginning to see similarities in fragrances already to the extent of where I feel I don't really need the two. Sometimes I feel as if I'm buying a fragrance as much for the fact of owning it as the juice in the bottle (which may be somewhat similar to what I already own)

I was just curious to know what you fellow members think is an ideal size of a collection? How many bottles do you own yourself? How often do you wear each bottle? And most importantly, how many you think is too many?!
