    DEfinitely silly of people to search out vintage or anything over 5-6 years old. Fortunately, I will kindly accept all fragrances over 5-6 years and, erm, "dispose" of them free of charge

    I have fragrances of 10+ age after the purchase date (not even considering the manufacturing date, just calculating based on the very moment I bought them) and they have never gone bad so far, nor significantly lost longevity, projection etc.

    I have a rose from 1918 as lovely as the day they were picked. Admittedly that one is an oil from Grasse.

    As for the rest. Occasionally I get one that has gone off, but actually it is not as common as you would expect. Much of that is marketing hype to make you all buy more and new.....

    You stay that way, so I can bag the bargain old ones.. I shall dill away without you... lol
    The vast majority of my scents are over 6 years old. The only one I think has changed slightly in its topnotes is Tiffany For Men.
