    Default Gucci Envy Dilemma

    A few months ago i bought a 50ml bottle of Gucci Envy. It was the new juice in bright neon colour. Last night i noticed there was a little leakage..so after looking at the bottle properly i noticed that there were large scratches maybe cracks on the top part of the bottle..just below the sprayer. Leakage occurs whenever i spray or turn the bottle upside down...although not a lot leaks out i still think of it as a waste. As i really enjoy Envy i got very frustrated because i assumed leakage means air will get in and spoil the juice much faster.

    So out of frustration i went out today and bought another bottle for cheap. when i got home i noticed that the leaky bottle was the new neon green juice and the one i just bought was the older darker green...old stock no wonder i got it cheap. To me both smell the same.

    So right now i need some opinions. Which bottle should i use up 1st? Leaky bottle or older juice bottle? I keep my frag in the box in my drawer with no exposure at all to light. I would prefer to use up the leaky bottle 1st but as the older juice bottle should be at least 4 yrs old im worried it might go bad 1st.

    I do envy you for having two bottles of envy. lol.

    I'd use up the leaky bottle first since the 'exposure' to air (however minute) could be a cause for concern.

    Then I'd send the new bottle to a fellow basenoter in the neighboring country cause I'm a nice guy.

    On a serious note, I think you should go back to the place where you bought the first leaky bottle for a one-to-one exchange.

    Haha...

    Well i did go back to the shop i got it from. The ppl there were kind of dismissive about me trying to return the bottle because i purchased it in January and its already May. I used up like 10-15ml already. They insisted i dropped it which i didn't. Return/refund policies in msia is almost unheard of.

    thanks.
    I would love to love it but I have tried it more than ten times and for some reason I do not get it, nice and all that but I do not feel that "master piece" element many of you do. Perhaps I should like it for what it was when released-

    gucci envy is not a masterpiece.

    i am an artist and i make art for living.
    90% of my work is NOT art!
    yess they are nice drawings but u simply cant label evry thing an artist makes
    as ART.

    Same with perfumes, some of them are just a fragrance and others are
    masterpieces.

    Mo, I know it is not a masterpiece but it is highly regarded and ,at some point it was a breakthrough fragrance, yet I do not get it

    Why not go buy a cheap atomizer and decant the broken bottle?

    Gucci is just using a brighter shade of green to color the juice as I smell no difference.

Of noble hearts, I am the noblest - and the most generous of those that yearn to give love in return. - I am a human being, I love death and I love life."

    This was the 1st thing i wanted to do when i discovered the leak. But all i can find here are small 10ml decants. I think i have about 40ml left so i need to go look for one that has a bigger capacity.
