    Default Fragrances going bad just in transit...

    Hey its one of these threads again! But ok not the normal not storing fragrances properly idea. What about just when ordering fragrances or decants/splits from someone. Has anyone experienced the fragrance going bad this way? Im thinking about it today because its been pretty hot and humid where I live right now, and I got my recent bottle from a split today and it was very hot to the touch. What are the chances of stuff like this effecting fragrances do you think? Thanks

    I think you shouldn't worry at all.

    Just let it get back to room temperature in a cooler place for a bit of time and you'll be fine.

    That shouldn't cause a problem with the fragrance.

    Roja Dove Diaghilev
    SHL 777 Khol de Bahrein
    Mona di Orio Oud
    Creed Green Irish Tweed
    Heeley Cuir Pleine Fleur
    Dior Cuir Cannage
    Acqua di Parma Leather

    The transit time isn't long enough to damage it.
    I live in a desert & regularly buy stuff online from abroad in the summer.

    for swap/sale:

    Tending to agree that simply allowing the fragrances to be stored cooler and allowing the temperature of the liquid to decrease will solve the problem. Whenever I ordered fragrances online during summer, never had any particular problem with the quality afterwards.
