    Default Storing fragrances in the fridge temperature?

    I'd appreciate your advice: Is it OK to store fragrances in the typical fridge temperature (3....6 Celsius = 37...43 Fahrenheit) ?
    Or is that too cold temperature? TIA

    There shouldn't be any problem at that temperature.

    I have heard of horror stories, more than once, the fridge would go out for some time and destroy the fragrances in there, since it can get hot and humid very quickly once the power is out.
    I know of many who use wine coolers as well.

    Mine are stored at 18 Celcius / 64 Fahrenheit.

    I don't set temperature too cold in case of technical problems.

    Apparently (according to the osmotheque), the ideal temperature is about 12C, which is obtained not in a regular refrigerator, but in a wine cooler or the like. Whether refrigerator temperatures are better than regular room temperatures I don't know, but my gut feeling is that a refrigerator is probably better than a room without air conditioning and that can get occasionally 30C or more. But I'll let the experts chime in on this.

    How about the clueless chime in?! I use a mini-fridge and and tend to believe that this actually gives my paltry amount of scents an advantage. I am probably wrong but I do not care. It seems to me to make sense that cooler temperatures equals more longevity. Then again maybe I am a moron . Either way, I sure do enjoy this crazy point of view

    I've been using a standard refrigerator set at the highest temp. setting available for everything that I own except for things extrait strength and above. There are about 300 bottles in the fridge.

    The thermometer in it reads at 46F degrees today and has read similarly for 10+ years. I haven't yet have a fragrance go off or be altered in any way that I can tell. There have been numerous power failures, some a long as 5 days after a hurricane as well as humidity changes, etc. etc. etc. No problems, no worries.
