  • I think they're alcohol based or something. I've never known them to go bad. I have a vanilla scented one in my bathroom that I purchased about five years ago. You could see if the manufacturer's website has more information (although, a lot of times, manufacturers say things expire before they might in order to cover their own gluteus maximus.

  • Supposedly if they are bad, they will begin to take on a heavy alcohol odor.

  • I know perfume wise it is generally 3 years but who is gonna being counting the days so if it starts to have the alcohol funk to the smell then pitch it and it maybe be past the 3 years mark :)

  • Expensive perfumes can last 3yrs or so(maybe longer if kept in a cool, dark place) but these cheaper body sprays DO start to smell more like alcohol after about a year, some less 8-10mos. I throw mine out after a year for sure.
