    Default Dior Homme Eau - juice discoloration

    Hello fragrance people,

    I just got a bottle of Dior Homme Eau that I bought from eBay. It came brand new and sealed. I have no question it's legit. The packaging was immaculate, well wrapped, etc. The batch code is 7S01.

    But the juice color is a yellow-green! It's not the light blue I saw in the tester at Nordstrom the one time I sampled it. Did it go bad? Does the discoloration signal that it was left in the heat or some other unfavorable storage environment?

    I don't want to use up to much of it in case I can return it. Does anyone have experience buying potentially spoiled fragrance on eBay? Any suggestions/insight would be greatly appreciated.

    How long ago did you sample the one in the tester at Nordstrom?

    It was actually just three weeks ago. They had a tester and one bottle left over in store.

    First time seeing it not being blue. Haven't heard of any reformulations.

    Well it turned out all good. I wore it today. It smelled great, didn't smell off. Longevity seemed normal (around 7-8 hours). Definitely going to wear it again tomorrow. My first full bottle of the Homme line.

    I was expecting it to look more like the stock photo: pale blue. It definitely has a pale yellow/green tinge to it. Oh well.

    I think the coloration may be sensitive to heat. I've had bottles that vary slightly maybe in color, all being 2014/2015 batches.
