High-quality perfumes come with a hefty price tag. Therefore, when you invest in one, you expect it to last for a long time. But this is only true if you store the perfume properly; in a dark, dry, cool, and enclosed space. Without proper storage, the quality and potency of your scent will decrease. As a result, you will need more perfume than usual to achieve the same level of scent. Sometimes, the scent of the perfume may become strange making it unusable.
Yes, the deterioration of perfume is imminent. Fortunately, there are a few steps you can take to keep your perfume fresh for as long as possible. Below, you'll find some tips on how to properly store your perfume for a longer life.
1. Keep perfume bottles out of direct sunlight
Well-designed perfume bottles made of glass are attractive and make people want to display them outdoors. However, direct sunlight can degrade perfumes quickly. Some perfumes packaged in dark and opaque bottles can be left outside, and some bathrooms may be dark enough to keep perfumes in good condition, but it's usually not worth the risk. In general, the darker the location, the better the perfume will keep. If the perfume or essential oil blend is stored in an amber bottle rather than a clear glass bottle, this helps to keep the blend out of direct sunlight, which will keep the perfume longer!
2. A dry space is ideal for storing perfume
Humidity is a no-no for perfume. Just like air and light, water affects the efficacy of a perfume. It can alter the formula of a fragrance, cause unwanted chemical reactions, and shorten the shelf life of a fragrance.
3. Do not expose perfume bottles to high temperatures
Like light, heat destroys the chemical bonds that give perfume its flavor. Even prolonged cold temperatures can destroy perfumes. It is vital to keep your perfume collection away from any hot air vents or radiators.
4. Use glass bottles instead of plastic
As seen in the market, most perfume bottles are made of glass. Perfumes contain some chemicals that are prone to chemical reactions with plastic, which can affect the quality of the perfume. Glass is stable and will not react with perfume. From an environmental point of view, glass bottles are also a better choice compared to plastic bottles!
5. Consider a small perfume bottle
The truest scent is experienced immediately upon opening, and even when stored under ideal conditions, it will eventually degrade over time. Try to store your perfume for as short a time as possible, and if you rarely use your perfume, a smaller bottle is the best option.
6. Travel perfume bottle
If possible, buy a small bottle to carry. Many popular perfume brands sell bottles suitable for traveling. Or use a clean sample atomizer. Spray or pour a small amount of perfume into this bottle. Because it will move around as needed, leaving a portion out allows the rest of the perfume to stay safely at home. Women who like to reapply perfume repeatedly throughout the day should consider carrying a small bottle of perfume for traveling with them.
7. Don't turn perfume on and off too often
Because air, temperature, and humidity all affect perfume, it should be sealed with a cap and kept in the bottle as tightly as possible. Some brands even use a bottle design that can't be opened but only sprayed, which is the safest way to preserve the scent. Spray your perfume with a vaporizer as often as possible and avoid opening and closing the bottle too often. Exposing your perfume to the elements can damage it.
8. Minimize the use of applicators
An applicator such as a roller ball will bring a small amount of dirt and oil back into the perfume bottle. While many women prefer the precision of using an applicator, using a spray is better for perfume. Women who strongly prefer direct application can use a disposable applicator stick so that no new oil is created after each use. Women can also wash off the applicator after each use to keep it clean and free of contamination.
