Perfume has the ability to stimulate and enhance our sense of style and is an add on to our personality. They contain natural extracts and Essential Oils that help in reducing stress and allows you to focus better. By using and carrying a premium quality perfume you can spend the entire day feeling fresh and confident. We all have perfumes and use them on a regular basis, we often neglect a very crucial part of perfumes that is the storage, considering that, we need to be specific about the temperature, light and place of storing. Perfumes usually stay longer and are ideal if kept in a dark and dry place at cool temperature. Perfumes lose their fragrance and colour if not kept in a desired manner for a long time. It is necessary to use a premium quality of fragrance as the consistency determines its longevity. Keeping the bottle inside the box can protect the glass container from light. Sometimes people go as far as to the fridge to store the bottle but it is not realistic for everyone, so a closed cabinet works well. Here’s all about where/where not to store your perfumes and do’s/don’ts to keep them fresh and last longer.

Where to store and Do’s ✔️

⋆ Store in dry and dark place

⋆ keep the bottle sealed when not in use

⋆ keep the bottle in original box

⋆ carefully read the back of the product (the description box)

Where not to store and Don’ts ❌

⋆ Avoid keeping exposed to windows.

⋆ Avoid keeping in direct light or in washrooms.

⋆ Avoid constant change in temperature of storage area.--

⋆ Not in any direct contact to fir or even near to such area as it can lead to ignition

Average shelf life

The average shelf life of perfumes is 4 years, it can increase on to several more years if the seal is intact. If the perfume has high content of alcohol or water, it is likely to get oxidised once opened and may expire soon. Perfumes should not even be kept near fire so as to restrain them from igniting. Storing in excessive cold temperatures like a fridge can also lead to damaging and decreasing the level of intensity. Hence, constant fluctuations of temperature can lead to contractions of liquid inside the bottle. Storing them correctly is essential to maintain fragrance, quality and longevity. These tips can help you for optimal perfume storage allowing you to enjoy the scent that is signature to a specific brand for years to come longer than the usual expiry time. Even though the perfumes don’t have any definitive expiration but in order to maintain the quality and shelf life it is important to learn about the tips and tricks. Light fragrant, natural and citrus notes tend to degrade faster than the woody notes that have longer durability.
A simple trick of keeping the bottles on the lower shelf could also help the bottle last longer. If you expose perfume to light it can expire in 6 months. Transferring the liquid from one bottle to another should also be avoided as it can completely damage the product and ruin the liquid completely. The composition is definite so storing them in a plastic bottle will retain the scent particles, losing the authenticity of the perfume. Heat and oxygen can accelerate the ageing process of fragrances leading to oxidising of the liquid and ruining it. Shaking perfume bottles, not sealing the cap tightly is another reason for ruining the fragrance.
