    Default Where do you guy's keep your colognes ?

    I was wondering, where do you guy's store your colognes? do you also store them in a dark place with the original box in them as well ?

    I read posts from powerful basenoters, recommending that you keep perfumes in a small compact fridge, used exclusively for this purpose.

    In a cool, dark place, with the original boxes if I have them.

    I think it's kinda stupid in a way, having them in a fridge letting them run 24/7 lol, just my opinion.

    yes the almighty powerful Basenoters... (lol)

    You're going to get mixed answers. Some say "Well Frederic Malle keeps his stuff in a chiller" to "cool, dry, dark cabinet is fine."

    If it's a dark and clean area, and you plan on wearing them often , I wouldn't hassle with taking them in and out of their boxes. A box is redundant in that situation anyway (it's not going to protect from light, because it's already dark. It's not going to protect from dust, because it should be clean in the storage area anyway). A cap would be more essential I think, to reduce any small amount of evaporation.

    Keep them in the drawer. It's a cool, dark place, it's the best way possible.

    In a closet and/or drawer:

    - If it came in a box, it is stored in its box
    - I do not believe refrigeration is required
    - I do not display fragrances

    Default Re: Where do you guy's keep your colognes ?

    I keep mine on a couple of fancy trays on the dresser in my bedroom. No direct sunlight, it's hardly ever above 70 degrees fahrenheit, and I really like to look at my collection any time I please. I'm just not anal enough to worry about refrigeration. As for boxes, some I keep, some I toss, but I NEVER keep a scent in its box. Seems silly to me. I toss the boxes either in the trash or into a cabinet under the bathroom sink. I like my scents, but I don't coddle them! The only ways I baby them are by keeping them out of the heat and humidity of the bathroom, and by never having them in direct sunlight. I think my bedroom is sufficiently cool and dark enough for them to suffer no harm.

    On shelves and in cabinets, all dry, not exposed to light and cool around my room - no additional storage spaces, appliances or facilities required (so far, at least)

    Bought a free-standing, mountable medicine cabinet from Target for less than 50 bucks. Has one door and a mirror, and is completely dark inside. It sits on my dresser, and houses most of my collection.

    Guys it's fragrance, not plutonium. Mine are on my bathroom counter, not in a box. Seriously who wants to look at all those cardboard boxes?

    I keep 2 or 3 on the bathroom counter top (the ones that are currently my "favorite"). The rest go under the sink in a cool dark cabinet.

    I keep mine in a unused wine cooler, unplugged. I just like the thick insulation to keep them at a constant temp.

    Default Re: Where do you guy's keep your colognes ?

    As my collection has grown, I've needed to move them around. Currently, they're in drawers in my basement bathroom (doesn't get used that often and no showers).

    Most of my fragrances are flacons and they are kept in a wine cooler.

    Generally in the bottle they came in.

    Cardboard boxes. I store the boxes separately. Some I display in a bookshelf in the bedroom.
