    Good info, thank you for sharing.
    I have a food saver vacuum sealer. I use it with all my falcon/splash and with some of my more expensive/unique spray bottles.

    The only one I worry about is my bell jar of Chene. I have had it for over a year now. Only opened it once to decant 10ml. Hopefully the 65 ml remaining in the bell jar is still ok. I think I might just order an empty spray bottle for the remainder of the liquid.

    I think I only have two other splash bottles but they have screw caps so I don't worry about them.

    It may be simple but it certainly isn't cheap.

    I'm also using parafilm with many of my bottles. But I think a dark, dry (& cool) place is most important.
    I have some rare italian splash aftershaves & musks of the 70s and early 80s that are in rotation since years. I do not use Parafilm for most of them but normally they are kept in dark & cool climate if not in use and they're still smelling devine. At times when I'm wearing and using them I don't care too much, keep them in the bathroom, take them to gym and things like that. Same with my 100+ miniature collection.
    But there are months, even years when they rest dark and downstairs.
    Can't help but I think it's also a bit of a psychological thing: Some nice extra care for the babies. Nothing wrong with this. Time will tell.

    That's not a lot. Plus, that might be waaayyyyy more than you'll ever use in your lifetime if you're gonna use it for perfumes. Look for a smaller size, .

    where do you find the small plastic caps?

    the vintage bottles I have purchased with these caps have been very well preserved and want to do that to all my bottles. thanks

    Perhaps a silly question but I want to be 100% sure. Regarding light.... storing a fragrance in its cardboard box, the box the fragrance came in - that should be sufficient right? I don't -- for example -- have to store them in a dark cupboard if they are already stored in cardboard boxes (I keep mines in their boxes on a book shelf).

    You are good if they are in their boxes. A lot of people store their fragrances in their boxes on top of a bureau or whatever, so they can have them out in the open where they can be seen and admired, but protected from light. A trick I remember one person doing, was they actually cut off the bottom of the box, so that its super easy to get at the bottle!
