Anyone experienced THIS with a Tommy Bahama (or any other fragrance) bottle?

Well now I've seen it all. I've worn fragrances for a long time and owned many in my lifetime. But tonight something happened that I've never seen before.

Over the last couple of months, I've intentionally been trying to dig deep into my wardrobe and use some fragrances I haven't used in a long time. Tonight was no exception.

I grabbed for a bottle of Tommy Bahama for Men. It's a fragrance that's been discontinued for several years, but I always liked it. It just got pushed to the back of my collection over the years.

So I sprayed it on and immediately remembered why I bought it. It's a great scent. It's versatile and can be worn anytime of the year. Many think it was the best TB fragrance ever. Yep, they're cheap, but many of them DO smell really good. Most are EdC's though, so they don't last that long.

Anyway, a minute or so after I sprayed it on I noticed that there were 10-15 rather large brown flakes of something all over the palm of my hand. They were really stuck to my skin and I had to work to wash them off. It didn't immediately click what it was, but then I realized it must have had something to do with the Bahama bottle. So I got it back out and noticed wrinkles and cracks in the coating of the brown bottle. The brown tint of the bottle was literally cracking and peeling off like paint.

I thought about just leaving the bottle alone, but then my OCD got the best of me and I felt I had to clean all the loose "glaze" (or whatever it was) off of the bottle as best I could. So I got a wet paper towel and started to rub the bottle. I was stunned to find that flakes over the entire bottle started coming off. It was extremely sticky and messy and I wound up going through several paper towels before I got it all off.

Imagine my surprise when the brown bottle became completely clear! In all my years of using fragrances, I had never seen such a thing happen. I've seen a scratch or two in the coating of a bottle, but never seen the entire coating coming off. I suppose I never really thought about it. Imagine this bottle becoming clear....

Haha...oh well, at least the fragrance itself is still good. But I wondered if anyone else had ever experienced this with a Tommy Bahama (or any other fragrance) bottle. I've been using fragrance for many years and have never seen or heard of this particular problem.
