    Re: Recommend me an INCENSE scent

    Incense Rose is my favorite. I know its technically classified as a ladies fragrance but it wears so well on men imo. I own it and love it.

    Re: Dealing with the expired perfume

    Sephora is the only retailer I know of that allows a return once the product has been opened and used. I know they allow an equal exchange of product.
