Marie, to be clear, when I mention that others can't smell my perfume, I mean that usually if I walk past one of my friends or family you can still smell a hint of my fragrance (not like the amount you get when someone bathes in their perfume and it travels feet in front of them). My job requires me to be close to people- not to mention I like to be able to smell my perfume too- and I CANNOT- which is the problem. Smelling the perfume slightly when you walk by or when you smell the area that you sprayed it is different from not being able to smell it at all... and I cannot smell it at all

At first I thought it was just me (because I had a cold a week or so ago), but when I had other people smell where I sprayed it (on my wrist and on my shirt), they couldn't smell a drop of it either. Strange.

I did find a creation date on both bottles that I've been through now and they were both only 3-4 months old. I called the actual company and asked if they reformulated, and they said no. They should be telling the truth... right?

Let me tell yall something. The only thing I read in this post was the word "perfume" which made me remember something. Every woman in my life is a perfume addict to the point where I don't even want them to wear fragrance anymore. I've smelled all sorts of notes or whatever from every corner of globe multiple times over. Wifey, her mother and sister keep Sephora in business. Apartment looks like the perfumania warehouse. Its to the point that I rather wifey not even use scented soap anymore if I can help it.

About a month ago I was in midtown NYC, and this middle aged Japanese woman walk past me leaving the trail of the most beautiful, mystical, feminine aroma I ever smelt in my entire life of living. Cant describe it but it was airy and "natural". It was a smell lacking whatever chemical inherent in all perfumes, because I've never smelt anything like it and I thought I done basically smelled everything. I wanted to stop and ask her what she was wearing, not to mention I wanted to have sex with her just off the aroma alone, but when I saw her face, she looked too damn angelic to talk to. Just letting some of you relationship-challenged females know that some strong pheromone like stuff out on the market. Get that.

Could they really have changed a perfume that's been around for years? This is frustrating!
Yes, they could have. It's unfortunate when it ruins a good fragrance, but there are plenty of others out there. If they give you a hard time at the counter, you can always say you'd like to use the refund to purchase something else, and ask for their help in selecting something new.
