    Default Level of fragrances

    Hello, i have a question, it's maybe a silly one, but is there a way to check the level of fragrances such as zino davidoff, kouros, antaeus - that have colored boxes.
    would there be any damage to fragrance if i put the the bottle near a normal room light bulb (for cca 1-2 min.)and than see how much is left in them?
    thanks in advance

    I doubt holding the bottles next to a light bulb for a second will do any damage. The other obvious way to do it is by weight.

    Don't know how much success you'd have, but I can't see great harm being done.

    Yeah, holding it up to some artificial light for a few seconds to get an idea of the level is fine, just don't store it there.

    Of course you can. Just keep your fragrances from prolonged exposure to light.

    As long as you don't continuously expose them to light, you should not be worried about them lasting.

    Indeed, as long as the exposure to light is not permanent/continuous, this temporary use of light in order to determine filling levels can most likely do little or no harm.

    Ok, thanks guys for your reps...as i said it just hold them for cca 30-60 sec. in the light to see the level of fluid, so i think no damage can be done (they are stored all the time in a dark place).
