    Default How do you know that your fragrance is too old/bad?

    I have this bottle of ADG for 1 year and I remember it to be fresh watermelon bomb at opening. Now, its no way fresh, just sweet and synthetic mess. Later (10-15 minutes) it became quite enjoyable and I think its exactly same as it was before, longetivity is good too but I am not sure about strange top notes.

    Can this bottle be just too old right now? Or does my taste changed that I can no longer appreciate top notes? How do you know that your fragrance is old? What to do to keep them still fresh?

    Strange topnotes sounds very much like an old bottle. Especially since it returns to normal after some minutes. I know this can take away the fun of using the scent, but normally the drydown counts, doesn’t it?

    You can keep your scents in the fridge. Don’t forget to turn off the light.

    If your fragrance yells at the kids to get off the lawn, then it is too old.

    Keep the fragrance in a dark, cool place, away from any source of light (not the fridge, that is bulls#!t) and never forget to put the cap on. Every fragrance has a shelf life, whether it's 5 years, whether it's 100, in time it will go bad, that's life.

    Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.

    I had a small bottle of Aqua Di Gio which I kept by a window which after six months went sour. So I always keep fragrances in a cool dark place.

    I think anything that yells at kids to get off the lawn ... is too old.
