I went to Easton Mall to purchase this product and they were out of stock, so I went to Tuttle Mall and they had one bottle left, so I purchased it. A few days later, I opened the box and the contents looked really a dark colored brown and since I had only purchased the toilette spray in the past, I wasn't familiar with how the parfum should look. I started using it, but I really could not get a sense of smell from it. The scent that comes from this product is so faint that you don't even know that it is there. I am disappointed with this parfum and I won't be purchasing it in the future, I will go back to the toilette that I used to purchase.
