For this weekly feature, we pick the brain of beauty's best and brightest to try to make your life easier.

I've never had a signature perfume. I always wanted to have a lot of fragrance choices, so since high school my bathroom has been cluttered with bottles. That all changed when I met Fabrice Penot, one of the co-founders of Le Labo, a few years ago -- now my fridge is cluttered instead.

This tip is an oldie but a goodie; extreme heat can make your fragrances go bad and even though winter is upon us, it is still beneficial and money-saving to protect your fragrances throughout the year by storing all your perfumes in the refrigerator, I thought it was weird, but I did as told. (Because when attractive perfumers with French accents make recommendations, I tend to listen.) Bonus: In summer it also feels cool and refreshing when you spritz it on your neck and pulse points. Love Story by Chloe, one of my favourite scents ever, sits next to Alien Eau Extraordinaire, which sits next to my new favourite winter fragrance, Escentric 01 by Escentric Molecules (It's delicious -- get it here.)

Just a word of warning, though. Extreme cold can be just as bad as extreme heat, so if you have one of those refrigerators that freezes the veggies in the crisper, skip it. This is one of the reasons I keep them on the door, because the temperature isn't as low there.

Happy spritzing!
