Most people seem a perfume, cologne, or an Eau De Toilette, and think that they are all the same thing. People basically equate them all to being the same thing. People see all these different types of fragrances as being the same since they all basically have perfume oil in it and are used to make you smell good. But using this logic, you would not see much of a difference between a 4 percent beer and a 40 percent whiskey. We all know that they are widely different things and so are all these different classifications of fragrances. So in this article we will write a quick guide on the major members of the fragrance family and how they all differ from each other.
The first thing we will talk about is the lowest concentration, which is a Eau Fraiche. This usually is marketed to younger people and often does not last more than a hour. This has the lowest concentration, usually 1 to 3 percent. This is the cheapest but also the least effective.
On the other end of the spectrum we have Parfums, which is not a typo for perfumes. These fragrances have the highest concentration of perfume oil, at around 20 to 30 percent. These are slightly oilier to feel than the others as the perfume oil is quite concentrated, and it will last you over 8 hours with ease. These are the most expensive and the most effective. These are an all day sort of scent and should be chosen with care.
Below the Parfum, we have Eau de Parfum, or perfumes, then below that we have Eau de Toilette, below which we have colognes, and then finally the Eau de Fraiche. To get even stronger scents that last longer, you could get RawChemistry perfume oils.
