I have no idea, though it's hard to imagine even a bottle that's turned smelling like feces and vomit - to me, bad Mitsouko is pungent, but in a varnish-y way. Maybe Mitsouko has been reformulated yet again, and you smelled a fresh bottle of a bad blend. Vintage is the way to go with Mitsouko, in my opinion. One needn't look for bottles earlier than the late 80s through the 90s to find a good one.Was this just a bad bottle? When I’ve smelled Mitsouko before its been more like a typical chypre with a napthalene mothball top. Seeing as there are Mitsouko aficionados in the room could someone please throw some light on what this was or could have been?
(Note - I believe the tester strip was clean because it was in a tall pot behind the counter and not reachable by customers).
