I have had perfumes that changed after a year and others that seem to be the same after 10 years. Generally, I would say that most perfumes are usable for 5 years and more if stored in a dark place without much temperature change.

Open it, try it and you will know!

Only very few perfumes "age" like a good wine by getting more concentrated over the years. Some simply loose fragrance while others get an unpleasant rotten smell. Also, flocculations may be visible.

I just learned a new word! Smile

I can see myself going back to the shop, complaining to the S.A. about the flocculations...

- "Sir? inocculations?? ovulations?? United Nations?!?!?!?"
