    Default Display/Storage problems? Where to put them all...

    So what do you all do about displaying/storing your fragrance bottles?

    I share a bathroom with my fiance so half of our large two-sink bathroom counter is hers. I keep my favored bottles on a tray and the others in a cabinet under the sink, but I'm running out of room everywhere. Even my fiance, who is a product hoarder, is starting to make fun of me.

    Stories and suggestions?

    Since I'm in an apartment with no air conditioning, everything is in a minifridge. But before I moved, I used to just have everything on a shelf in my closet, or in the drawer of my nightstand (deep drawers). I would say a good bet is a nice little endtable with a couple of drawers in it, or if your collection is really big, a small sideboard/cabinet with doors or drawers. I would advise against continuing to store things out on the counter, or in any cabinet with glass doors, since fragrance can be destroyed over time by light.

    On a shelf in the hall closet. Not only does it have the most available space, it's also dark and also the coolest spot in a very hot house.

    bbBD do NOT continue to store your fragrances in the bathroom counter. You are subjecting them to two of the worst conditions for fragrance storage: drastic changes in temperature and light.

    Keep them in a dark, cool area. I keep mine in my closet, on a shelf.
