I tried to do a search but came up with nothing. Mods, please move if needed! I'm wondering about buying designer perfumes at discount stores. I was in Gordman's today and found D&G's the one. I just ordered it from Sephora with the friends and family discount but had it shipped to my mom's because it's a Christmas gift. Anyway, I was excited to see it there and sprayed the perfume but it didn't smell right. It didn't stink, but didn't smell like I had remembered it smelling at Macy's. It didn't smell nearly as good. At first I was really disappointed, thinking I had ordered this perfume and now am realizing I don't like it, but I know I loved it after spraying it on myself at Macy's. It lasted all day. It's now not even 2 hours later and I can't smell it on my wrist at all. So my question is...are the perfumes at stores like Gordman's, TJ Maxx, Marshall's, etc., old, or something? Or maybe it was just that particular tester bottle. Most of the other perfumes I smelled today smelled like they normally do.
