Although when placing on the window sill, in the sun, your perfume bottle looks very sparkling, beautiful. But actually this is the worst place to store perfume. Sunlight can affect perfume, causing it to degenerate earlier, unable to retain the original smell.

Perfume will be most stable when you store it in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight.
