Usually, a perfume bottle has a shelf life of about 3-5 years from the date of opening. But you can prolong the life of a perfume bottle if it is stored properly and properly. So let’s learn the best ways to preserve perfumes to avoid fragrances or scent changes before you don’t have time to use them up.
Keep the perfume paper box
When you buy perfume, you will usually remove the paper box because it is very inconvenient to open the paper box each time you use it. But the manufacturer that created the perfume paper box has its own meaning. That is the medium used to preserve very well for a perfume bottle. So, please don’t leave this box.
Do not store in places subject to high temperature and direct sunlight
Like cosmetics, perfumes should also be protected from direct sunlight. Therefore, you should not leave perfume bottles near windows, direct sunlight, or too high temperatures such as the trunk of a car, it is easy to change the scent, as well as make perfume bottles fail faster.
Store in a dedicated refrigerator
You can store the perfume in the refrigerator. But remember that the refrigerator must be clean or have a separate compartment completely separate from the food. Otherwise, the fragrance will be mixed with the smell of food, which is very unpleasant. And you may have to give up your favorite perfume bottle.
Do not leave perfume in bathrooms or wet areas
Many people have a habit of leaving perfume in the bathroom for convenience after bathing. But you do not know that a humid environment will help harmful bacteria multiply, making fragrances susceptible to change of scent.
Leaving the perfume in dry, airy places will help prolong the life of your perfume bottle.
Try to keep the cap on the perfume bottle
The cap of a perfume bottle is used to help compress the vapor to prevent the scent from evaporating too quickly. When the cap is lost, the perfume is easily exposed to air and light, leading to oxidation of the solution inside, making the fragrance as well as reducing the scent. Therefore, please try to keep this lid.
If you accidentally lose the cap, you can cover it with food plastic film. Although it is a bit unsightly, it is better than a bottle of perfume you love that become fail
