    If by "charmed" you mean lose their potency over time, I would say yes.

    Air exposure would certainly alter the fragrance over time. Spray bottles would be preferable or decant fresh flacon juice into atomizer containers.

    I love that expression, "getting charmed"! Degraded perfume as a changeling...if I'm interpreting the OP correctly, that's such a poetic description of what happens to a fragrance exposed to the elements and irrevocably changed. Yes, Matixx, splash bottles are much more vulnerable than sprays.

    Perhaps you mean "harmed"? lf so, then l would say yes.

    If it's sealed up after use, I wouldn't worry too much about it. I only have a few splashes, but I use parafilm for extra protection after decanting.

    It certainly is! I'm going to retain it as part of my perfume vocabulary.

    Probably would. That's why I prefer spray bottles.

    In theory, would say yes, while also admitting to have been-at least so far and even if based on blind, random, uncontrollable luck alone-blessed with splash bottles and especially with fragrances in these very splash bottles affected by little or no spoilage nor significant, noticeable decrease of performance over time
