    Default Fragrance longevity. 2 questions..

    I have 2 questions.

    1. How long do frags usually last if kept in a drawer away from light and heat?

    2. Is there any way to tell when the fragrance was made?

    I made the mistake of stocking up on some good frags before leaving my old job for my new one. I didn't even consider that I wouldn't be working in a frag free environment.

    All help is appreciated.

    1. If kept at "room temperature" (72-78 F or so), years most likely. Generally, the cooler (no lower than about 50 F) and darker, the longer they'll keep.

    2. Usually, no. Most fragrance houses stamp the bottle and/or box with a propietary date/lot/location code. You could try contacting the manufacturer to see if they'll help you identify your code/bottle. I've done this with Chanel a couple times. Some codes may be more straight-forward and actually give you useful information, although I haven't seen one yet - except for Creed. Creed stamps the year of production on their boxes.
