    Question Can perfume evaporate?

    I was going through my fragrances yesterday & saw that my bottle of Insolence seemed like it was a third used. I know for sure that I have only used it a few times & can't have used that much. I have had the bottle for about 4 years however, kept in a dark location.

    Can perfume evaporate? If so, what's the best way to prevent it?

    Perfumes can evaporate if the bottle is not well-sealed. When you spray it, is there leakage from around the sprayer button?

    can perfume evaporate? the stuff is made to evaporate!

    but it shouldn't evaporate from a closed bottle. however, anyone who has old stoppered bottles will know this happens nonetheless. i've never noticed it with any spray bottles, and i don't think with screw tops either.

    Perfumes can evaporate if the bottle is not well-sealed. I know some bottles as an example from Guerlain the L'art et la matiere line comes with the puff sprayer. Those actually help the evaporation process.

    There doesn't appear to be leakage around the sprayer, I'm bewildered. I wonder if this is something that happens to the Guerlain Insolence bottles. I have 100ml.
