I recently bought a bottle of.a new range just released by a very well known store we all know and love. There were no testers available (Covid rules?). The perfume is called Sandalwood. When I got it home I was amazed to find it smells more like jelly babies. Horrible. I would never have bought it. I range their head office. Obviously it caused a commotion. Never happened before, no guidelines are issued by them. I asked, can I take back with receipt and change? Seems because I bought in-store I am not able to. Any ideas anyone?

Personally I would not buy an unknown scent without having smelt it on my skin first as everyone's personal chemistry is different. My mum used to wear L'Air du Temps by Nina Ricci and it smelt lovely but it smells like petrol on me!
I can only assume it wasn't John Lewis in either the Trafford Centre or Liverpool as they both had testers available up to last Saturday... even my local big Boots has testers albeit locked away.
