Admittedly, perfumes are one of our weaknesses. We don’t mind dropping half of our paychecks for a bottle of designer fragrance, if it means smelling sexy AF the whole day.
That said, we’ve been constantly researching on ways to prolong the lives of our favorite pabangos, and we stumbled upon advice from Mark Knitowski, Senior Vice President Of Product Development and Innovation for Victoria's Secret Beauty.
Speaking to Byrdie.com, Knitowski explained that instead of letting our perfumes sit pretty on our dressers, we should be keeping them somewhere cool and dark, like a refrigerator.
“It can make the fragrance last up [to] two years longer. Why? Because when fragrance is in heat and sunlight, it loses its intensity and impression due to heat’s ability to evaporate the fragrance character. The more you store the fragrance this way, the better," he said.
Of course, you should wrap the bottle in aluminum foil or place it in a resealable bag to keep it from spilling and possibly affecting your leftovers.
Time to rearrange our vanity, then!
