Lavanila Vanilla Coconut color looks different from the picture?

Hi All! I recently ordered Lavanila's Vanilla Coconut perfume. I'm sadly disappointed by the smell - I hardly smell any vanilla or coconut and feel like it just smells like alcohol. On top of that, the picture on the Sephora website shows a light-colored clear liquid:

However, the bottle I received has a dark brown liquid:

I'm going to return this because I don't like the smell (I sniffed the lotion and body wash at my local Sephora, but they were out of stock of the perfume), but I'm wondering if this is just a bad bottle (do perfumes expire?) or what. Does anyone have any clue on what may have happened here?

 

Thanks for reading!

Is there a date on it anywhere?  Vanillin darkens like that as it oxidizes.

Hi Nuke,

 

Hmm that's interesting. I'd recommend contacting Lavanila directly to inquire about why this may have happened. 

Whimsically yours,
Janine
