Don’t let your perfumes go bad in the heat and changing climate! If you have various perfumes like me that you might wear according to season, occasion, time of day, etc. then you will want to know the secrets of keeping your perfume fresh all year around and for years to come!
1. DO NOT I repeat DO NOT leave your perfumes in the bathroom. This is the worst possible place that you can store your perfumes. When you take showers and it starts steaming up in your bathroom it becomes humid and wet. The humidity of the air and temperature changes in your bathroom will make your perfume go bad very quickly.
2. Avoid sunlight at all costs! Put your perfumes in a dark drawer or cover them with something to keep the sunlight from reaching them. Do not put your fragrances next to a window, as you may go to spray after a few months and see that your perfume has turned into some awful concoction and have wasted all of your money.
3. Avoid heat! This goes along with storing your perfume in dark, dry places. Don’t leave perfume in your car or anywhere near anything that generates heat. The heat messes with the chemical bonds in your fragrance and you will be left with something very rotten when exposed to heat.
4. Buy atomizers! If you have to spritz throughout the day, don’t bring the whole bottle along with you. Instead, use an empty atomizer and fill it with the fragrance that you wish to spritz throughout the day.
