    Default At what temperature is the fragrance industry/community definition of "Extreme Heat" for fragrances

    I apologize in advance if I posted this in the wrong sub-forum.

    At what temperature is it considered "extreme heat" for your fragrances.
    I have read about sun light being bad for the fragrances. But I have also
    read about "extreme heat" as well being bad for them.

    At what temperature is it considered "extreme heat" ?

    I only ask because I have been ordering from FragBuyCA a lot.
    The packages come in thru New York and Im in Oregon. So my
    orders generally take 7 to 9 days by Fed Ex Ground Delivery.

    Also I live in a town in the high desert portion of Oregon that is
    pretty hot from May thru September and my house can be from
    78 F to 85 F daily during those months. The temps do cool down
    a little at night.

    Thanks in advance for any help with my question. This is a great
    forum and I always appreciate the help everyone provides here.

    Before I move my fragrances to their final permanent place which is set at 57 F, they are probably at 74-75. For me extreme heat would be keeping them in the high 80s to low 90s.

    I agree here. Other places not good for a fragrance would be prolong sun exposure in a hot metal mailbox or vehicle where temperatures can exceed 100 F.

    Frankly, I would not worry about it, which I don't anymore. Cases of fragrances are transported inside semi-trailers all over the world where the ambient temperatures are in the 90s or higher. If this was a real concern I'm sure fragrance manufacturers would have taken special measures to protect their products during shipment to the retail outlets. So far I haven't read anything that indicates that extra precautions were put in place for that purpose. I have read users post their experiences where a box was left in an USPS outdoor locker box for days during the summer heat. They did not perceive any differences between a bottle they already had and the new bottle left in the heat. The real concern here is direct sunlight as it can wreck a whole lot of stuff, not just fragrances.

    So this is the logic I use to keep my mind at ease because I use to worry about heat in the summer when I ordered fragrances.
