Does Perfume Expire?

Many perfumes don’t have a hard-and-fast expiration date. Some will begin to expire in less than a year and others will last upwards of 10 years. However, three to five years is the average shelf life of a fragrance. According to experts, perfumes with heavier base notes will last the longest.

You can tell if your perfume has expired by simply checking for a number of key signs; scent – does it smell different, appearance – has the color changed and date – some perfumes may have an expiry date. Test How it smells – one of the most obvious ways to tell if your perfume has gone off is to smell it.
