    Default Obsession reformulation question (costco purchase)

    I recently purchased a bottle of Obsession at Costco. I have fallen in love. After reading some reviews about the reformulation I wondered if everyone was crazy, surely this amazing perfume couldn't be the one everyone is talking about (and how bad it is) My bottle doesn't have the gold rim, so I assumed it was new, now looking at it I realize it looks like there is SUPPOSED to be something at the bottom of the lid (it is indented all the way around, like a trim, but bare) Someone else mentioned that the new bottles have plastic white nozzles (mine is plastic but gold)

    So my question is, does Costco sell sealed but imperfect bottles of perfume, could this be the original formula ? If it is, I must run there and buy all the bottles left, otherwise I have fallen in love with a perfume that will be very hard to find again, sniff sniff (unless this is a reformulation and I just happen to like it)

    It is easy to know if original formula or reformulated.
    Original was made by UNILEVER
    Reformulation is manufactured by COTY PRESTIGE.

    Read the box and you will find it.

    I agree. New formulation is great. It is OK for me, and I enjoy it very much, but at the same time I would like to own an old formula bottle.

    regards

    I never thought about that, I checked , it was made by coty, so if I love this new , lesser version , I can just imagine how amazing the original must be!
