How to properly store your perfumes

How to properly store your perfumes

How do I store perfumes properly?

One of the most frequently asked questions is 'How do I store my perfume correctly?'.

To ensure the best shelf life for your precious perfumes, we are happy to answer this urgent question here.


1. The expiry date

The expiration date actually begins with the opening of the perfume.

It is the supply of oxygen to the perfume that triggers the gradual degeneration of a fragrance, i.e. when a perfume bottle is opened or an atomizer is pumped for the very first time.

However, if you store your perfumes with care, you can extend the life of your perfumes for many years.


2. The enemies of valuable scent molecules


Your perfumes should always be stored upright and preferably in their original packaging. The exposure to light over a long period of time will definitely lead to a deterioration in the quality of your fragrances. It is also a good idea not to buy perfumes that are on display in the shop window when you want to buy perfumes.

You can store them in a nice box, a dark cupboard or in a drawer. As beautiful and precious as your bottles may look on a chest of drawers or windowsill, light in all its forms (especially direct sunlight) is the enemy Number One!



Unfortunately, even though it's really convenient, perfumes should never be stored in the bathroom. Extreme temperature fluctuations spoil your scents quickly, so that the quality decreases rapidly.

Every time you or someone of your family showers or enjoys a hot bath, the temperature and humidity in the bathroom rise enormously within just a few minutes and then quickly fall again. This fluctuation destroys the molecular integrity of your perfumes and sours them swiftly.

Be careful not to store perfumes in other places where extreme temperature fluctuations may occur, such as in cars.

Some fragrances last much longer than others, so there are no absolute guarantees when it comes to storing your perfumes. However, by following these two simple rules, you can enjoy your perfumes for longer without compromising quality.
