Due to regular changes to chemical and EU regulations a fragrance manufacturer may be required to re-formulate or adapt existing fragrances to meet new regulations, which demands a change in ingredients. Changes to ingredients can result in a slight adjustment or change to the fragrance itself.
Notice: Large thick roller bottles require polymers to minimize leakage to comply with regulations to be able to ship the products. Polymers will cause the consistency to thicken somewhat. In a few cases our lab noticed that the polymers are causing a chemical reaction with the perfume ingredients, and can cause a separation/lumping of colouring used in perfumes. Although this is not common and only occur in a few isolated cases, it will not affect the fragrance but is a chemical reaction. Shake the bottles to spread the colouring out. We are trying to resolve this by replacing perfumes with artificial colouring with colourless retail demonstration testers that contain no artificial colouring.
