  50. Re: Such a dilemma: to spray or not to spray rare vintage?

    This is very true. The containers that samples are stored in, how they're sealed, and how they're kept is important. Even then there's no guarantee a sample will be good for the long term.
  51. Re: Such a dilemma: to spray or not to spray rare vintage?

    I try to buy only things that I know I will wear however recently I too found myself being reluctant in wanting to crack open sealed bottles particularly from Guerlain.
