Tips and warnings

  • Purchasing decant perfume (full perfume bottle opened and divided for resale) online may be seen as unethical, and it may be illegal in your jurisdiction. Opening a perfume bottle may also alter the scent, giving an unauthentic aroma, taking away the company’s hard-earned work to formulate the scent for you.
  • Opening a perfume bottle to decant could be dangerous and result in injuries from broken glass or splatters into mucus membranes.
  • A rash could occur with any perfume sample if it does not agree with your skin or sensitivities.
  • Buying or selling samples with labels, “Not for resale” may be illegal. Laws and rules regarding the resale of samples may change over time. Check with the company you purchase from before buying, making sure your potential purchase is legal. Confirm this information with the designer’s company.
