    Default Fragrance Displays

    My modest fragrance collection is tucked away in the sock drawer and is put to shame by the display shelves featured in many member's pictures. At what point do I move the bottles from their cozy hideaway to a curio cabinet or my wife's china cabinet?

    When you need the space for more socks. Seriously you'll know when it's the right time and if it's something you want to display more openly for your viewing enjoyment.

    I recommend keeping perfume in the dark in a cool place. Don't let light, or heat destroy your scents.

    As long as its cool and dark, you're good.

    Your sock drawer is likely the best place to keep your frag. LIght damages perfumes. If you want to use the frags within, say, 5 years, keeping them outside (but out of sunlight) could be good, but otherwise, better in the dark. Many of the displays you see here are actually in dark parts of the house, where they don't receive light.

    Even if I had the space I would not spend hundreds on these cabinets..

    I found these leather covered boxes at hobby lobby for about $20 each. I keep my perfumes, decants, samples and decanting supplies in them. You can store them in a closet or on a table.

    Thanks! Sorry the picture is so dark. The box on the left has cut outs for handles. I have stacks of these here and there.

    Agree. I don't display my collection. I keep my full bottles in large rubbermaid containers in my basement. Cool and Dark. I put 5ml into atomizers, and keep the atomizers in my bathroom closet. Easy to organize, easy to find, all at my fingertips.

    I like the look of that box. It will match the one I use to organize keys and such on my nightstand.

    Only some of my fragrances are openly displayed, most of them are simply kept in closed, cool and dark cabinets.

    I store my fragrances in their original boxes. I keep them cool and in the dark.

    I store my frags in their boxes in a dark cabinet. Sometimes I display my Scent of the Day on top of my dresser for a day or two to enjoy the beauty of the bottle. Otherwise, the bottles are well protected. I believe some, but not all, of the photos on BN are staged for photographic purposes and are not their regular display/storage.

    I have my collection stored in an antique cabinet. Included is a small library on the subject & my seasonal rotation in a leather chest. I use a cigarette case with my seasonal/travel samples, while the rest of the sample collection is in a bedside dresser drawer.
