When you spend that much money on a perfume you expect
it to last a long time. There are several different
reasons why a perfume will not last long after you
purchase it but the main reasons why is due to heat,
light, oxygen or ingredients.
Heat can harm the perfumes preservation, not to
mention it can be flammable. It is a great idea to
store them away from heat, such as a heater, heating
vent, stove, etc.
This can cause the heat to dissolve the natural
ingredients and the chemical used to preserve it may
be ruined. Light is not good for perfume life.
If the perfume is left in the light for too long, it
can cause it to become discolored and the scent will
become weakened. Oxygen can develop inside the bottle
as you use it.
When the space that once stored your perfume fills up
with oxygen, that oxygen can cause the perfumes smell
to become altered as well as the color.
There are several ways to preserve your perfume.
Perfume should last for up to one year on a full
bottle. As you use it, the quicker it will expire.
Buy perfumes that come in aluminum containers or use
the original packaging to keep the bottles stored in.
Glass bottles are beautiful but they can ruin the
perfume quickly. You can?t control the oxygen that
gets into the bottles.
Buy perfumes that come in a spray like aerosol. The
spray bottles hold the scent longer and prevent dust
and other particles from getting to the perfume.
