Perfume Tip #1


You know which are the three usual suspects that reduce perfume shelf life? Light, heat and humidity. My best suggestion? Store your fragrance bottles in the box they came in, in a cool, dark, dry place. If you do this, your chances of owning beautiful fragrances for many years increase dramatically. Just think of those precious bottles as vampires. They cannot see the light of the sun.

Here's another tip: When buying testers, pay a little extra to get one with a cap and box. It makes a difference in the longevity.

Thanks Iris. It definitely does! A cap helps keep oxygen out - another usual suspect.
