What is the shelf life of your fragrance?‏


Here are some useful tips from Carlos Ugalde, Founder of Sasha Varon Luxe Parfums about the shelf life of your fragrances:

Most fragrances have a shelf life of 2 years but can be extended up to 5 years if kept out of the light and in a cool place. Many factors go into this….One factor is the oil to diluents (alcohol and other ingredients other than fragrance /essential oils) ratio. The more alcohol, the less concentrated and pronounced the fragrance is but the shelf life is longer.

Many people ask if refrigeration can prolong fragrance shelf life and the camps are definitely split.

Here are two views:

1: From thegloss.com : “Keep essential oil perfumes in the refrigerator to slow oxidization (but this depends on the carrier – oil or wax-based scents can go bad faster than alcohol based ones).”
2: The Fragrance Foundation. This is the premier resource for expert fragrance information. Here is what they have to say: “It’s important that you keep your fragrance protected against extreme cold or heat. Only colognes and toilet waters should be stored in the refrigerator. Perfumes should not be exposed to extreme cold or heat because either may upset their delicate balance. Notes can be affected by extreme temperatures.”

So, if not the refrigerator, where should you store your fragrances?

Do store fragrances in cool, dry spaces away from sunlight:

>Cupboards
>Dresser drawers
>Dark closets

Don’t store fragrances in:
>Bathrooms (generally moist and warm)
>Windowsills
>Direct sunlight

NEW from L’Oreal – Sublime Mousse by Healthy Look!

Do you dye your own hair? If you do – you’re gonna love this! If you don’t – this new product may make you change your mind!

The geniuses at L’Oreal have made dying your own hair as easy as applying shampoo. Seriously! Make Her Up is happy to introduce to you L’Oreal’s new way to dye hair – Sublime Mousse!

I was sent a box of L’Oreal Sublime Mousse to try for myself (color #41, Iced Dark Brown) and I was absolutely thrilled to try it! (PS: Why does my picture have an 80′s glow to it? Time to clean the lens…)

I dye my own hair, and I’ve always used L’Oreal products. One part of dying my own hair that I hate – is the mess. You get the drips down your face, on your ears, on the sink/counter/etc. (Okay – maybe I’m just messy!) But this new product takes away all of those issues!

It’s hair dye – in mousse form! How perfect is that? It’s a permanent conditioning haircolor – that makes your color look natural, your hair shiny and healthy!

Have grays (like moi)? No problem! This product covers your gray’s perfectly! I don’t know how this dye does it – but it seems to capture the highs and lows naturally found in your hair – my hair doesn’t look one-dimensional or flat. I looks great!

This product is so easy to use, it’s crazy. It comes out like a mousse – and is the simplest way to apply hair dye that I’ve seen yet. Just massage the product into your hair – no more parting or separating! The mousse expands once it’s in your hair – surrounding every strand, so even the hard to see back of your head – are easily covered!

GO HERE TO WATCH THE APPLICATION VIDEO! See for yourself how easy it is!

In order to create the perfect product, L’Oreal did their homework!

WATCH IT HERE! Kate Moss’ New Dior Addict Lipstick Commercial

A commercial for Dior Addict lipstick starring Kate Moss has been released (or inconveniently leaked).

The 90-second spot shows the blonde supermodel getting dressed in a lush Parisian apartment overflowing with statement-making gowns and heels as Duran Duran plays in the background. With perfectly painted cat-eyes and slick black nails, Moss seductively applies the glossy pink Dior Addict lipstick before stepping out into a paparazzi cloud as she’s driven away to Dior’s Spring 2011 fashion show.

What do you think of the Dior Addict lipstick commercial?
