I know there would've been threads like this before but I just wanted to know if you guys store your scents in their boxes or out of them?

I ask because I've been storing mine on a pedestal in my room, in their boxes even though my room never gets any direct sunlight. I've decided now to keep my collection private and have moved all the bottles into a cupboard. The bottles are gorgeous and the only time I get to see them is when I'm about to wear the particular scent.

Have any of you had scents go bad when stored out of box?

Also, I know that when in the box a scent should easily last 5 years, would it last for significantly less time if not stored in the box?
