Hi, I'm Stephanie, from, and I'm going to answer your question, Does perfume have an expiration date? Perfume doesn't necessarily have a defined expiration date. There are some ingredients in perfume that will get better with time, when they age, they'll actually become a more pleasant aroma. There's also ingredients, that when they age, will degrade, so some of the ingredients when they oxidize, will change the aroma, so your perfume years from now, may not have the same aroma, that you fell in love with, when you first bought your perfume, but it doesn't necessarily have an expiration date, so when you buy your perfume, it may change over time, but there is not a defined date, that you'll need to throw your perfume away.
