If it is tempting to expose your bottle of perfume on a bathroom shelf, this is not the place to keep it in the best conditions! The sun, the humidity and the heat are the worst enemies of a perfume. We advise you to place your bottle of natural eau de parfum away from the light in a temperate room like a bedroom for example, or why not in your dressing room, next to your accessories and jewelry?
How long can I store my perfume?
Our natural fragrances have a date of minimum durability superior than 30 months. They can be kept for several years up to 3 years or more if they have been kept away from light, and temperature variations.
A perfume changes in time in a variable and unpredictable way. Perfumes are very sensitive to oxidation. Their aging is closely related to how they are stored. After several years, a perfume may be slightly shaded. The best way to know if your perfume is still “good” is simply to feel it.
