    Default New fragrance question

    Is it possible for a brand new fragrance to pump on the first try (without warming up, that is)? Or is this a sign of use?

    I don't think that that's way out of the ordinary. I have had sealed boxed fragrances spray on first pump before.

    Never happened to me with brand new sealed in a box fragrance.

    Hmmm... I wonder if it's technically feasible (given the science of the whole matter here). But I don't know. Maybe if it was laying on its side for a while? Makes no sense to me--

    How in the world can a fragrance be already primed in a new, sealed box??

    Do you trust seals?

    I wonder how easy is to pack an used bottle into his box and spit some glue on the cellophane. I suppose that's the way greymarketers work, since there is no other way to erase batchcodes... And I've seen plenty of authentic greymarket products in perfectly sealed boxes.

    However, I don't recall any brand new bottle without vacuum in the atomizer. Not even from greymarket.

    But I don't trust cellophane seals...

    Interesting! I had a definite gray market frag - sans the usual sticker - that was full, but sprayed on the first pump. Some dude sitting in a back room somewhere probably took a shot. I suppose it's a perk of the job!

    But yeah - otherwise, they almost always need 2+ pumps.

    Interesting ideas, smeller. I guess I really don't trust seals. Or greymarketeers. But I picked this one up at Sephora. Guess I expected more from them, though I suppose...

    Never happened to me. If that were me I would return/exchange it.

    What was the frag? And sephora is pretty trustworthy I would think. Unless it was a return and someone rewrapped it.

    I suppose it's possible, but I've never had it with any of my new boxes
