Does this stuff hold the scent from so long ago? Does it change?

EDP (eau de parfum) ,concentrated oil-based holds really well especially if kept out of sunlight,not exposed to air and constant cool temperature (Never in the bathroom!), water-based EDT or EDC (eau de toilette/eau de cologne) is not as stable and you often lose the top notes,can smell a bit off but after it's on your skin,in 20 minutes the top notes disappear anyway and you are left with pretty much the same scent as when it was made. If the bottle has been opened,kept in bathroom etc , the only use is in a vinagrette.

when you are looking at bottles over $2000.00, believe me, they take care of it. I know a perfumista in Hawaii who has a temperature-controlled vault!

Hey Jad, I was talking to my sister yesterday about our Mom and our grandmother. My sister asked me if I remembered our Grandma always smelling of roses, which I didn't. She said she thought it was the perfume she wore. This would have been as long ago as the late 50s. Would there have been a lot of rose scented perfume back then?
