The beauty of fragrances is their longevity, with some products lasting over 10 years, but this is all based on the fragrance scent's chemical composition and how well it is stored.
In most cases people we get tired of a scent before it ever expires. That's why purchasing fragrances is the best beauty investment you can ever make. Foundation and mascara dry out or lose their consistency after a year or two unlike fragrance products.
Since fragrances are in an air sealed container this lowers the direct effect of oxygen impacting the product. The glass bottle and box packaging protect it from light, moisture, and chemical breakdown.
The best way to store your fragrances is to keep them in their original box packaging in a dry, cold room.
A common mistake is to store fragrances displayed on a bathroom vanity. The moisture and/or steam from the shower can affects its quality.
Opt to store your fragrances on a shelf in a closet. Since closet typically do not have windows and are normally interior rooms, they are dry, making them a great location to store your fragrances.
