    Default How to understand the "year of production" of a single bottle of scent?

    Hi all,
    there is a way to understand "year of production" of a single bottle of scent? In a general way, looking the cardboard box we can assume that parfume was produced during , for example, 1972-1985, but this is too generic...

    Sometimes there is a batch number (or similar sequence of numbers) on the box, but how to use it?

    Sites like http://checkcosmetic.net/ can be of some use.
    Not always reliable, though.

    Aside from checkcosmetic, some boxes will list a "best by..." date (which I have yet to see myself). Regardless, if stored properly your fragrance should last much longer than the recommended 3 years.

    thank you...and yes, I have a bottle of Eau Sauvage Christian Dior, 20 yrs old, and still perfect!
