Changes or aging occur in all fragrances, whether organic or conventionally manufactured. MAX-SUE appreciates this evolution because it allows us to embrace the vibrancy and natural life cycle of organic fragrances. We intentionally do not use synthetic preservatives, which is why the shelf life of MAX-SUE perfumes is slightly shorter than that of conventionally manufactured perfumes. The perfume is not “spoiled”, the fragrance just begins its natural, oxygen-related aging. Therefore, the scent is likely to change a little over time, compared to when you first bought it.
