How do you store perfume in your wardrobe? 

Perfume is a delicate product that can be affected by heat, light, and air. To preserve the quality and longevity of your perfume, you need to store it properly in your wardrobe. Here are some tips on how to store perfume in your wardrobe:

  • Keep your perfume bottles in their original boxes or wrap them in tissue paper. This will protect them from dust, moisture, and light.
  • Store your perfume bottles in a cool, dark, and dry place. Avoid places that are exposed to direct sunlight, heat sources, or humidity. These can alter the chemical composition and smell of your perfume.
  • Store your perfume bottles upright and tightly closed. This will prevent leakage and evaporation of your perfume.
  • Don't shake your perfume bottles or expose them to sudden temperature changes. This can cause air bubbles or oxidation of your perfume.
  • Don't keep your perfume bottles for too long. Perfume has an expiration date that varies depending on the ingredients and quality of the product. Generally speaking, most perfumes last for 1 year after opening. However, some perfumes may last longer or shorter depending on how they are stored and used.

  • Colour: You can group your perfume bottles by the colour of their liquid or packaging. This can create a visually appealing display in your wardrobe.
  • Size: You can group your perfume bottles by their size or shape. This can help you save space and find them easily in your wardrobe.
  • Category: You can group your perfume bottles by their scent category, such as floral, citrus, oriental, etc. This can help you choose the right perfume for every occasion and mood.
