    Default what is the specific problem with keeping your fragrance in bathroom?

    the atomizer is one-sided so no material can get into the bottle.
    the temp of the shower is no radical imo and I can put it in the draw when no sunlight will hit the perfume.
    so what is the specific reason? thx

    Under those conditions there's no problem in keeping the perfume in the bathroom. Plus, it's really about very long term preservation (ie decades). If one uses the perfum within a few years, there's no issue even with a warm bathroom (direct sunlight though can be a problem even at shorter times).

    Also if the bottle is properly ventilated and spared from extremely high temperatures, combined with this very fast rate of using/wearing a scent, possible spoilage becomes highly unlikely.
    Both due to a fast use up rate and also the next (best) choice to appropriate storage even considering the temperature, humidity and airing conditions existing in bathroom.

    They should be fine given the situation stated.

    so I run a test in my bathroom door and windows closed at all time:
    before shower - temp is 26.1 degrees celsius and humidity 33%.
    after 7 min of hot shower - 26.9 degrees celsius and humidity 75%.

    like I thought the hard radical change in degrees isn't there but the humidity is jumped high.
    is there any problem now with those details for fragrances?
    do know that the whole time the door is closed and the window also closed and is it more of a stress test because a lot of people open the doors/window after or while they take a shower. so the humidity can disappear more quickly.

    Shouldn’t be a problem I just never desired to test or chance it I keep them in my bedroom away from light since I plan to keep them for a very long time.

    It’s cause I have trouble deciding which one I will carry to take a shower with me.
    I don’t understand.It is so vast that surpasses all understanding.Understanding is always limited.But not understanding can have no boundaries.I feel like I'm much more complete when I don't understand.Not understanding,like I say,is a gift.Not understanding,but not as a simple-minded.The good thing is to be intelligent and not understand.It's a strange blessing, like having craziness without being crazy.It is a meek disinterest,it is a stupid sweetness.

    I have many fragrances in spray bottles kept maybe 10-15 years in a bathroom in dark drawers. Still excellent.

    Humidity is not your friend when it comes to fragrances.

    As long as they are all spray bottles, humidity shouldn't be an issue. My theory is that a bathroom's temperature can increase by 15 degrees F whenever one showers. Of course it depends on the size of the bathroom, too. If that's good or bad, I don't know, but I'd rather not risk it. Plus there is not enough room for my fragrance wardrobe in my bathroom.

    I've had spray scents in my mirrored bathroom cabinet for 20 years.
    They all smell fine to me.

    The only one that ever went off was a splash bottle.

    I've never believed there was a problem keeping perfumes in a bathroom.
