Can cologne get stale?
I'm just getting back into using cologne and one bottle I have is almost ten years old. I know who I was dating when I bought it which is why I know exactly how old it is. :-)
Anyway, it wasn't cheap and it's still about 60% full, so I'd still like to get some use out of it. On the other hand, I heard that cologne can change its scent over time, so I don't want to slap on bad stuff.
I guess the only way to find out for sure if I should hold on to this cologne is to try it and see how it smells. But I don't completely trust my own nose. I was wondering if others had any experience with colognes going off if they get too old.
