    Unhappy did I ruin my fragrances?

    I've kept some EDP's in my mini fridge inside their boxes for over a week but now they dont smell the same. Did I ruin them? They're made from all natural ingredients and I read on the company's website that their lifespan would only be a year as opposed to three years when compared to designer ones. That's why I decided to keep them in the fridge. They both smell noticeably different right now. Can anyone help me out? Or share some experiences with me? Right now I've placed them in a cool dark closet hoping that they return back to normal when they reach room temperature.

    I can't imagine scents going "off" by a week in a refrigerator! Shipping by ground this winter would put a scent through more cold than that.

    Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

    Let them return to room temperature and see if they don't return to their original quality.

    This. Re-assess them in a few days. My bet is that they'll be back to the way you remember them.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    This sounds like the best thing to do.

    Let the fragrance return to normal temperature. Also WEAR and SPRAY your fragrances too avoid loosing money and not even enjoying the fragrance you bought.

    hhhhh, I did that once actually long time ago, and my perfume return to the same scent in days, but I felt it a little different and loved it even more. Good luck with yours.
