    Default Fragrance Storage

    I understand that you're supposed to store your fragrances in a cool dry and dark place. Is it cool if I store mine in my closet? I have my heater on sometimes and my room becomes pretty warm, that is on purpose though lol.

    That's fine. Those fluctuations aren't a big problem. It become a problem when if your room goes back and forth from cool to oven temperatures.

    It's certainly fine to keep them in your closet as long as it stays cool inside, since your running a heater. I don't think the heater is going to make it warm enough to ruin your fragrances, but it's best to be safe than sorry.
    You will find some members actually keep there expensive frags in an electric wine cooler or mini fridge! I keep mine out on my dresser because my bedroom does not get that warm and my fragrances are out of direct sunlight and they do just fine.

    I just bought a floor cabinet with front door and drawer. Instead of clear class, it has privacy glass(wavy,can't see straight thought it)
    Does anyone else store theirs in a cabinet like this? I'm a little apprehensive about getting a fridge since these fragrances aren't meant to be stored cold. Couldn't you get water inside the bottles from condensation if you put them in a fridge?
    Some say yes, some say no... I don't really know so the floor cabinet works for me

    Your storage cabinet sounds fine. No need to get a fridge.

    It's only direct sunlight that should be avoided

    Sunlight is a fragrances biggest enemy, if you store them properly they can last up to 10-15 years

    Would like a small wine cooler or something similar one day, but for now I just use a drawer in a dresser. Dresser itself is not exposed to large amounts of direct sunlight.

    Closet/cabinet storage was more than OK for me so far- never affected the fragrances stored there any way.

    Sounds fine. Just never in the bathroom or in sunlight.

    Hey all,

    I have 2 vintage bottles that are in great condition but open and I need to figure out a way to seal those babies up nice and tight to store. Also have 8 other bottles that need to be stored as well. Should I put them in a temp control safe?? The place I'm keeping them is dark and not cold but moderate throughout the year. The climate in Colorado does swing but not where I am currently keeping them, not fluctuations. I wanna keep everything protected but also properly stored so fragrance is not altered if you catch my drift. it is of utmost importance I get these guys bundled and tucked away. Got some cool stuff!! Checked out the container store and they didn't have what I assumed would be okay for storage and have no clue what to do with the open GN and GBGA. For those who know this stuff, please get back to me. Thanks!

    Hey there.. by open are you referring to splash bottles? If not you don't have anything to worry about.. atomizers are air tight. Most frags have caps simply for looks and to keep them from spraying accidentally. And as long as they're not reaching extreme temperatures or being exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods of time a drawer or closet is fine for storing them.

    I keep mine in my walk in closet with the door shut so the warmth of the heater doesn't get to it. sounds like you should be fine
