After the wedding, many women keep their perfume bottles in the bathroom, which is actually not the ideal place for storage. The steam from the shower and inherent humidity of a typical home bathroom affects both the aroma and color of perfume. It is optimal to keep them in a in a place without direct sunlight and relatively low humidity, such as your bedroom dresser or wardrobe closet.
If you rather show off your pretty bottles, perhaps display them on a tray or in a basket that can easily be moved to a closet shelf on occasion, such as when you are away on vacation or on a long weekend. This will help to extend the life and vibrancy of your favorite fragrances.
