Why Is Perfume Kept In The Dark?

Ultraviolet light can damage the delicate structure of a liquid, alter its smell and even destroy it, according to some scientists.  The bathroom is the best place to keep perfume because humidity and temperature caused by the shower can reach the perfume even when it is in a closed cabinet. Applying the fragrance directly from the shower is a clever way to extend the durability of your fragrance, but don't be fooled to leave the bottle in the bathroom. 'The best way to store your fragrance would be to use an airtight container, such as a glass bottle or plastic bag with a lid.

 On the other hand, some people believe the worst place to keep your scent is in the bathroom, where most people prepare for their day, according to a study from the University of California, Berkeley.  Some perfume boxes provide protection, which makes it last longer, but it seems wrong because most perfume bottles can be works of art. If you don't have a box or if it's too damaged to use, you can easily make a pretty box that looks attractive and keep your perfume safe.  To increase the longevity of your fragrance, it is also good to close it after use.

Although primarily decorative, perfume cans, even if they maintain a stable temperature, serve two purposes: to keep the fragrance away from light, prevent oxygen from entering the bottle, and maintain stable temperatures. The refrigerator is one of the best ways to avoid oxidation and chemical degradation, because it maintains a coordinated temperature and keeps scent away from light and heat. For example, if you take a shower, you will be in a graveyard of scents, so keep your scents away from the light.  Others also think that, you should consider a perfume bottle less as a statement piece and keep it in the fridge to extend its shelf life while preserving its fragrance and quality. Once opened, it is best to enjoy the scent while it is empty, and make sure you have kept it properly until then.

It is often recommended to store perfume in a cool, dry place, and the refrigerator is the best place to store expensive perfumes. I answer the question: can you put perfume in the fridge to preserve its fragrance and quality?

Perfume has its own shelf life and needs a cool and dry place so I think the place is to store it in the refrigerator.  Many perfumes have no set expiry date and can last between 1 and 10 years. However, three to five years is often the average shelf life of a fragrance and most fragrances will still work for that time.  Some compare perfume to fine wine: it gets better with age, it only becomes less effective and does not last beyond its use.  You can tell by looking at the bottle whether a perfume has turned bad: it changes colour, with the liquid usually becoming darker and more opaque. Perfumes and concentrates should be kept in a cool and dark place and kept in labelled, dated dark glass bottles or tightly sealed bottles.

It is best when it is convenient to place the bottle on a dresser, or a bathroom counter. To ensure that you keep your perfumes for as long as possible, store them in a cool and dry place that are slightly colder than room temperature, but do not freeze it.
