    Can Perfume go off?

    Used one of my perfumes earlier that i've not used in a while and it smells weird - certainly not like it used to!
    Could it have "gone off?"

    yes im sure it can.

    yes they do, not for a while i think though, dont they have a use by date?

    yes it does go off.

    i guess it depends on the ingredients-but im sure i had an expensive one changed dramatically years ago and was disgusting!

    Yes they do, if they have been in a bright or warm place, or have been open for a few years. The best way is to store them in their box in a cool dark place. They will last much longer.

    Hth!

    Not that i saw - think i have had it for 3 or 4 years! Didn't think for one minute they did!! That will teach me for using it sparingly to help it last!!:roll:

    Yup they go off, we used to sell perfume at work and the testers would start smelling wierd after 18 months or so.

    then again I had a cheap Blue jeans bottle which did go off, I think it depends on the quality

    Always try to keep them in their boxes and out of the sunlight or heat, then they last better.

    Doesn't matter if expensive or cheap, same rules apply.

    Eh? What you mean you still use the same bottle even though you keep getting all this free stuff on your "modelling shoots"?

    Mind you "aftershave" is best worn after shaving. Probably explains a lot!
