I have recently got into the fragrance game and have been immediately drawn to the Yves Saint Laurent house. I have a question I'd like to please ask if anyone can offer their more experienced advice.
I have purchased a sealed bottle of Jazz Prestige from eBay (perfect quality), and have been contemplating purchasing a second bottle from the same seller to keep in reserve; however, I am unsure of what would be the best way to go about testing the bottle for its freshness.
Both bottles are 1.6oz, and I intend on keeping the second bottle stored for at least a few years (opening after the first is depleted). I suppose I'm just afraid that spraying the second bottle might cause it to turn faster. Would it be better to just sniff the atomizer and base my judgement on the faint scent? Or would I be able to get away with spraying it? I just don';t want to jeopardize the quality and at the same time not get swindled by a soured fragrance.
I am new to basenotes and have tried my best to search the forums to see if this question has been previously posted. If this is a repeat, I sincerely apologize.
If anyone has any advice I'd surely appreciate it. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration!
