Perfume Storage Tips
Perfume can be an expensive indulgence. It only makes sense to ensure your perfume lasts as long as possible. If you’re trying a new scent, it may make the most sense to purchase a sample or mini roller to see how much you like it. If it’s your favorite perfume of all time, you may want to invest in a larger size bottle. These perfume storage tips will help your fragrance last as long as possible.
Keep your fragrance out of direct sunlight. Sunlight can degrade the oils and alcohols in the perfume and cause the scent to break down faster. You don’t need to store it in the dark, but be sure that it isn’t right in front of a window.
Heat can have the same effect on your fragrance that direct sunlight can. Be certain not to place your perfume near your furnace vent or radiator wherever you store it. Avoid storing it in places that get warm and humid like the bathroom.
Don’t shake your perfume. Perfume is designed to remain stable so there is no need to “mix” the perfume by shaking. Shaking can incorporate air into the fragrance which can degrade the scent.
Keep it clean
If your perfume is applied using a roller ball or applicator, be certain to keep it clean. Rolling or dabbing against your skin can introduce bacteria into the scent.
Handle with care
Be certain the perfume bottle is stored where it cannot break. I store my perfume on a tray with a raised edge which makes it less likely to be knocked off the dresser. Some people like to store their perfume in the original box.
Don’t risk spills when traveling. Purchase a small travel size mini roller to bring along with you in your suitcase or in your handbag. Make sure that it is the FAA-approved travel size if you are flying.
