COLLECTION: Storing Perfumes

If you watch my daily vlogs you'll know that I recently invested in another piece of makeup storage.  Things were getting out of hand so I picked up my first 9 drawer IKEA Alex (I already have three of the 5 drawers but desperately needed more storage).

Now I really wanted to find a good way to store my perfumes and a few of my favourite beauty items on top of this new homeware addition.  It took me a while, but I've finally nailed it!





I decided that in order to maximise the space to fit more on there, I needed a second tier for storing fragrances so I spent a little too much time scouring the internet for a suitable prop.  'Cake stand' seemed to be the most suitable search term and I finally settled on this mirrored stand with a cut out lace-look trim on eBay (link here) for around £20.  It's perfect!  It's now home to a good selection of my favourite fragrances.  Next to it is also a silver tray I picked up from H&M home (I think) which holds more sweet smelling bottles. 

I also keep my favourite luxury lipsticks in a clear acrylic lipstick holder and a vase of beautiful flowers on top (and occasionally a candle in the evening) and I couldn't be happier with the outcome!

I also wanted to show you guys my newest favourite piece of artwork for my home.  You all know I am map obsessed and this London print from a company called 42 Pressed is just perfection. (link)  I also have a Paris one and my current hunt is for the perfect frames to display them in (I'll do a full separate post once they're hanging in my new office)!

Hope this has helped some of you who are struggling for ideas on how to store your fragrances with minimal space!

How do you store your perfumes?

  1. This is a very good idea! My perfume bottles tend to just clutter up my dressing table until I get fed up and organise them better. I don't really want to put them in a drawer to keep them out of the way, as the bottles are always really pretty, so I think this is a really nice idea. :)

  2. Looks lovely like that! But since I always hear it's better to store them away from light I keep all my fragrances in a box.
