I’m sure everyone owns at least a bottle at home. You might have a signature collection or maybe someone gifted it to you on Christmas. Have you ever wondered if our perfume has an ‘expiry date’?
The answer is yes, perfumes do go off. But just how long can we store our perfume before it goes bad? The shelf life of a perfume depends on different factors, such as the storage method and the scent’s chemical composition.
Most perfumes don’t have a label for expiry date, as they can last between 1-10 years. But the best period would be between 3-5 years.
According to experts, perfumes with heavier base notes will last longer as compared to perfumes made up of mainly top or middle notes. Some examples of perfume base notes include patchouli, cedarwood and frankincense; while top notes include lemon, orange and bergamot.
Perfume storage is a huge factor which can affect the shelf life of a perfume. Correct storage allows the lovely scent to last much longer. Storing your perfume away from direct sunlight or freezing temperatures can help to prolong the shelf life of fragrance.
Don’t make the mistake of storing your perfume in the bathroom! The humidity in the bathroom will destroy the molecular integrity of your perfume.
If you have a perfume just sitting on the shelf for a long time, don’t let it go to waste! Perfume can be a very accessory used to bring out your unique personality!
