I find Geir way way way overrated.
I, too, got a bottle blind after all the acclaims here and was bitterly disappointed. After the fresh top notes faded, all I got was the sickening sweet florals for some 5 hours.
To tell you the truth, I could not wear it in summer. Back home (Dunedin, NZ) our summer gets to 20-22 degrees for around 2 hours a day in late February. For the rest of it, 16-19 degrees is pretty much all we get for maximum daily temperature. Just how people wear Geir in warmer summer is simply beyond me.
Unfortunately I can't help you on the bottle issues you are having. I finished mine long time ago.
