    Default Sprayed vs unsprayed Brand new bottle

    Im wondering if there will be a difference with shelf life between a sprayed bottle or a brand new unsprayed bottle.

    Don't see any difference. As long as it is stored properly.

    I would think not.

    So is it rumors when one tells me that once its sprayed, i bring oxygen into the bottle and it can start to oxidize?

    if you buy the cheapest cologne in the world it will still be hard to make it bad. if you keep it outside, in direct sunlight or inside a very hot room it can be bad. keep it in a drawer or the box it came with if it doesnt have a lid. normal room tempeture is fine "around the 70s or 20's in celsius.

    think about it as food. if you keep food outside in the hot sun it will get bad. if you keep it in the fridge it will not. the only difference is that colognes dont really have any date to expire.

    I have read (but cannot find) that Olivier Creed has said that the "clock starts ticking" on a fragrance once it is sprayed, and if property cared for, Creed fragrances can last for 6 years, or more.

    You'd be hard pressed to find any perfume company that doesn't tell you such crap.

    "Spray mechanisms are by the very nature of their construction air proof. If air is going to get into your bottle, it won't be from the spray mechanism but from the crimped seal where the metal edge of the bottle meets the glass, or, these days, with more modern bottles, where the plastic sleeve that fits over the top of the bottle meets the glass."

    Exposing fragrances to light will do more harm than anything else in the long term. For splash bottles that also includes exposing them to oxygen, which will also degrade them fairly rapidly. The average fragrance kept consistently in the dark and in cool temperatures (preferably mid- 50's F) will most likely be good for for fifty years or more.
