Ever had FO go bad? Bad batch?

I bought some ICS FO samplers about a month ago. They all smelled great OOB. I wanted to make some tarts out of a few last night, so I smelled them again and WOW! 3-4 were completely terrible smelling. Christmas Wish, Biscotti were 2 I LOVED OOB a month ago, but now... YUCK! Even my husband thought they smelled bad, so it wasn't candle nose or anything like that. I'm SO disappointed. I've had BCN FOs for almost 2 years that still smell great.

Any advice? Commiseration? Rants?

I have never purchased from them, but I was told once to shake the bottle and let it sit for a while and it should be fine. I am not sure why but I had a FO that I purchased about 6 months ago and the scent was so faint that I thought about throwing it all out. So after 6 months I went to smell it and it really smelled like the scent I ordered. The color even darkened.

My English Toffee sample from BCN morphed on me after about 6 months. Smelled exactly like toffee when I bought it and NOTHING like toffee (or anything even remotely decent) when I opened it up again last month. A couple of my oils from The Candle Source seem a bit "off" too, but nothing like the toffee.

The one that kills me is my Peak's Pink Sugar that I wanted to use last night. I poured a body spray with it that smelled AWFUL. No clue what happened there. It was about 6 months old, but it's been in my dark closet in the amber glass...sigh...

So, I think it's possible, even with the oils I consider "quality".

Hmmm... now I'm searching message boards like crazy to see if anyone else has had my Pink Sugar problem before. I thought my lost bottle of Peaks (which I adored) was a fluke, but now my back-up bottle from The Candle Source is bad too. It's the exact same "off" smell in both batches...weird...:sad2:

Back to searching for the world's "best" Pink Sugar...
