All fragrances are largely the same, but they’re given a name based on the concentration of oil in alcohol and water. The higher the concentration of oils – the greater the strength of the fragrance. The strength determines how long an application of the fragrance lasts on your skin and this makes the difference between Perfumes.
Perfume (Parfum): It is the strongest fragrance available, consists of a 15-30% concentration of perfume essence. This means that not only do you need to use less, but also that the fragrance lasts longer, typically for more than 8 hours, depending on skin type. Parfums are rich, heady and strong, so they’re not for the light-hearted. They’re special occasion fragrances, with a price tag to match.
Eau De Parfum (EDP): It is lighter than Perfume, with an 8-15% concentration, but still has long lasting characteristics, from 5 to 8 hours. It is less expensive than pure perfume. Some people reserve their Eau de Parfum for the evening and only wear an Eau de Toilette during the day, but there are no real rules in fragrance!
Eau De Toilette (EDT): It is lighter than EDP, with a 4-8% concentration of the essence. It usually lasts for 2 to 4 hours.
Eau De Cologne (EDC): Eau de Cologne is the lightest strength of the family. It is lighter than EDT, often referred to just as Cologne and has the greatest dilution of fragrances with a 3-5% concentration of perfume essence. It usually lasts for 2 hours. People tend to call men’s fragrances“cologne”, but Eau de Cologne isn’t just for men, and men can wear other fragrance strengths too.
Eau Fraiche is a scented substance worn in a manner similar to perfumes and fragrances. The difference between Perfumes lies in its lower price, which is due to the percentage of perfume oils it contains, typically 1-3%. I hope this is useful to you, and can certainly help you make a better shopping decision if you’re looking for a fragrance to wear.
