    Default "particles" floating in juice??

    My friend was going to sell me a bottle of Tommy, and I noticed that there was literally like particles(?) floating in it. I sprayed it and it smelled fine. But has anyone seen anything like this? Is it a benign issue? What the hell causes it to happen?

    Thanks for any info!

    You are not alone and it is actually something very common. At some point I estimated that 5 to 10% of the bottles I have seen have something, little particles inside. From Aqua velva to Serge Lutens. A while ago I was selling a bottle of Eau dOrange Verte, but I had to break the deal with the buyer at the last minute. He probably would not have noticed, but I knew there was stuff inside the bottle . My bottle of obsession night has this huge ball of fluff floating in it... I wonder if I can sue CK

    The only thing that worries me about all that, is the fact that the sprayer may eventually fail if the particles are too big.

    Ah, well that's good to hear, because I went ahead and bought it from him. I wonder what the hell it is? And you don't think it has any discernible affect on the actual scent of the fragrance? I mean, these particles are definitely large enough to be seen--but are FAR too diminutive to clog the spraying mechanism, haha.

    I have over 150 bottles of juice and only 1 has particles floating around, Burberry Brit. Juice still smells good though.

    the particles must be cockroaches forced through the filter
