    Default Where do you keep your fragrances?

    The bulk of my wardrobe is in a cabinet in my bathroom. I have an emergency bottle in the console of both vehicles. Some samples in my desk at work. Backups are stored in my basement.

    Did I read that correctly in the bathroom @_@ oh the horror! Hehe, I keep mine in shipping boxes away from light all lined up ready to wear when I’m ready to. Back up bottles and sealed boxes are in spare room in shipping boxes stored away from light and excessive heat.

    I keep mine in a dark walk-in closet within a temperature-controlled room. I recommend against keeping any in the vehicle because they can be exposed to extreme heat which may ruin the fragrance. Same with the bathroom... the humidity can be damaging.

    I keep mine in a dresser in my master closet. A also keep a few in the master bathroom, but it's so big and I keep the doors open, there's never a humidity issue.

    In a safe, in a temperature controlled room, with a cover on top. Better safe than sorry. Fire & water resistant safe; I also had prior bad experience with water damage at a previous place . Safes aren't really that much, and offer peace of mind against thievery and fire/water.
    Except lately I've exceeded the safe 'limit' and have more arriving. Luckily I'm moving in not too long and will probably just get another safe. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Yes, I had to have a special air filtration system built in throughout the confines initially to protect my wife's artwork and other valuables kept there. Also fireproof.

    In covered shelves.
    FYI: I spray all fragrances on clothing, never on skin.

    Default Re: Where do you keep your fragrances?

    In a small 2-drawer cabinet in the pantry. A room that is always dark, always cool.

    I actually get a kick out of this place being part of my morning routine. There is even a little space always kept clear to place my espresso on, since caffeination and fragrance application go hand-in-hand. It’s just one of those little moments in each and every day that is just right.

    For me it's the top of my dresser drawer. I'm not such a collector I feel the need to display them and I like to keep them out of the sunlight, but sometimes I'll set a bottle or two out that are in seasonal rotation. I'll also seasonal ones back in their boxes and store them away until the seasons change, I like the feeling of this seasonal line up change.

    In their boxes, in a couple of cabinets/drawers in the basement. Consistently cool, dark, and dry.
