    I've seen perfumes change colors like a chameleon at Fiesta.
    Yea i saw a bottle of burberry men at sephora the juice turned pink.. i thought it was a new frag or something haha.. the lady had put the bottle in front of the burberry men boxes & i was like umm i don't think that's right cuz burberry men is an amber/yellow color. No telling how many years that bottle's been sitting there. Lol

    Heat is bad as well, so they should not be near a heat source. Ideally, a cool place is better. The osmotheque, the perfume "library" in Paris, keeps its perfumes at 12C, in the dark, and in argon filled bottles (oxygen is also bad, but there's little one can do for that).

    Do not assume youtube or stores give the good example. For instance, Sephora keeps their perfumes on sale under hot lights, which is as bad as it gets. Same for the creams, which get spoiled even more easily.

    Which is why I do not purchase fragrances or body creams from Sephora.

    I buy fragrances from sephora but i never buy the ones they keep out under the warm lights.. I always buy the ones they keep in the drawers below where they keep the extras.
