Fragrance turns oily/greasy?

    Fragrance turns oily/greasy?

    Hey.

    The juice in one of my bottles has turned really oily and greasy when sprayed on the skin. It feels sticky. The bottle is about one year old, hasn't been stored superbly but not in a damp bathroom either.

     

    It still smells fine, but I'm afraid to spray it on my clothes for fear of stains, and it feels pretty gross to have that oily feeling on your skin.

     

    What has happened to it? Has it started to turn or does this happen with fragrances?

    Years of evaporation can make the remains more concentrated and almost oily, but it shouldn't happen so quickly. which perfume is it?

    Probably the mixture of the notes in the fragrance.

    Tat oily feeling is quite awful.

    What is the fragrance?  Alcohol based fragrances don't usually feel greasy.   It could be that some evaporation has occurred but even then it shouldn't result is this.

    I've seen some Amouages in store being very greasy/leaky around the sprayer. Don't know if that is due to the sprayer or the fragrance itself.

    The fragrance is the original Bvlgari Pour Homme. I'm certain it's not an old bottle since I bought it new and from a local store.

     

    Evaporation was my first thought too but the cap is always on and it hasn't been standing around in heat either. It makes no sense, really.

    This happens occasionally -- like a greasy sheen. Horrible when it does though.

     

    I got this from Tamboki Wood by S. Lang --

    i've had it happen a handful of times. it's usually a result of holding the atomizer too close to your skin when you spray
