Default does wax ever go bad?

i have a box of unused wax from a season or two ago... does it ever "expire" or is it good indefinitely? i'm assuming it's good 'till u melt it on something.

Should still be good, there is nothing perishable inside wax and the chemicals are quite stable.

my guess is it's just dried up, but should still be fine once melted on the board.. fragrance might not be there anymore, but that's not important.

Snowboard wax shouldn't be fragrant. The oils in fragrance wouldn't be good for a snowboard.
