    Default Where do you keep your fragrance collection?

    Just curious where you keep all your frags...Do you keep them all together? I usually keep some on the dresser or in the closet.

    All of mine are on two shelves in my bathroom closet.

    I keep all my fragrances inside their original boxes in a dark wardrobe.

    Lightninrod, I would be very wary about keeping fragrances in the bathroom. They would experience large fluctuations in temperature.

    I keep mine in the lower bathroom cupboards because they're the coolest place in my home.

    Default Re: Where do you keep your fragrance collection?

    i, too, am curious on how these basenote masters keep their fragrances

    i have this ikea wood side table mini cabinet thing....
    two shelves inside
    top: winter
    bottom: summer

    and i have all my samples and decants in a drawer in my desk along with grooming essentials and the scent i used that day

    SA said...just a cool and dark cabinet....but also recommended a fridge...

    would a wine cooler be a good place...to maintain the cool temp....not necessarily FDA meat storage temperature?

    i have a question about boxes: keep or throw away

    i have heard people say it will convenient when moving....
    college in in 2 years...

    so what are your pros and cons?
    wishlist:
    Chanel - Cuire de Ruissie and Eau de Cologne
    Penhaligons - Quercus, Castille, and Raquets
    Dior -Eau Noire, Dior Homme Cologne, Dior Homme Intense, and Dior Sweet Sun
    Frédéric Malle - Angelique sous la pluie and Eau d'Hiver
    L'Artisan - l'eau de l'artisan and bois farine
    Hermès - Elixir des Merveilles, Jardin sur Nil, and Hermessence Confret.

    In my wardrobe.

    Default Re: Where do you keep your fragrance collection?

    In my bedroom away from heat & light, in the back of a swivel mirror.

    I keep all of the boxes, in case I ever decide to swap or sell something that's fallen out of favor.

    Default Re: Where do you keep your fragrance collection?

    I keep mine on a vanity. I am a vampire by nature. I keep my apartment very dark. I don't like bright light anywhere. I have black curtains over my windows. I keep it 65 degrees in my place year around. So, it's always cool in there. I can't stand the heat.

    Default Re: Where do you keep your fragrance collection?

    I keep mine in a dedicated medium-size fridge between 55 and 60 F.

    I keep all frag boxes, opened and flattened in other, larger boxes stored in the garage.

    Default Re: Where do you keep your fragrance collection?

    Inside my bathroom's cabinet. I know, large temp. fluctuations, but thing is they look dead sexy all arranged in there with their respective box and in height order. I do have a little fridge in my room, but the problem is that I can't get the temp. to go above 4 Celsius and I am scared that it is too low and will just ruin my fragrances.

    Default Re: Where do you keep your fragrance collection?

    I keep mine in a dresser drawer, cool & dark. They are sepereted between two.

    One drawer holds the ones I don't go to that often (designer scents) The other holds the ones for more everyday use (more of my 'niche' scents).

    Default Re: Where do you keep your fragrance collection?

    The majority of my frags are kept in a cardboard box in my bedroom. I do keep a couple random ones in the bathroom under the sink. I have a few cheapies in my bathroom as well, that are kept on a shower rack that's nailed to the wall, lol.

    Default Re: Where do you keep your fragrance collection?

    Mine are on my dresser right now. but I don't have much after moving so often and throwing stuff out. Yeap. I fell prey to the idea that I needed a "signature" scent. I suppose if any scent fit that bill its Pink Sugar unfortunately...but its not right for every day and situation.
    Always remember you are unique; just like everyone else.

    Mine are kept in my study, inside a doored shelf - it looks quite nice... all lined up!

    (Some are hiding behind my chess books though... the ones that I don't want to see so much and don't yet want to give up! )

    Mine are mostly kept on top of my chest of drawers in my bedroom. Some are kept actually inside the drawers.

    Mine are on shelves in my closet. It is probably the room that keeps the most constant temperature throughout the year. And the only light it sees is when I go in there.

    Default Re: Where do you keep your fragrance collection?

    I keep mine in their boxes on the bottom shelf of the hall closet on the way to my bathroom. It's cool there and if there's a quake I don't have too worry much. I know it's anal but I decant most of them into the smaller sprays I got before I bought full bottles

    Those in rotation are in their boxes on my desk in my room! Exactly in front of my eyes when I stay in home!
    Others in the wardrobe.

    Is there real proof to keeping them in a fridge, or is that simply fable or lore that has perpetuated from one generation of basenoter to the next??
