​Perfume vs. Eau de Parfum/ Toilette/Cologne: What’s the Difference?

Posted on

If you’re convinced that perfume, eau de toilette, eau de parfum, and eau de cologne are not all the same substance, you guessed right. Each fragrance-type is classified according to the concentration of aromatic oils it contains.

It’s hard enough finding just the right fragrance to suits your preferences. It’s time we break down the categories so that at the very least, you can begin to narrow your search:

Perfume: In the mid-16th century, perfume was originally characterized as nice-smelling smoke from a burning substance. Due to the high concentration of essences (25%-40%), this is the longest-lasting of all the scent categories, and thus the most expensive. Perfume is usually sold in smaller quantities because of the small amount needed.

Application: Only a drop or a single spray on the wrists and throat is usually enough to last up to 24 hours.

Eau de Parfum: Eau de parfum is a fragrance for both men and women. With about half the concentration of aromatic essence (15%-20%) there is in perfume, it’s much cheaper.

Application: Ideal for spraying on hair or clothing and usually lasts between 5 and 8 hours.

Eau de Toilette: Great for warm summer days, eau de toilette is refreshing when applied, due to the dominant top notes it contains and low concentration of aromatic essence (10%).

Application: Because it evaporates fairly quickly, this can be sprayed over clothing all over the body. It lasts for about 3 hours.

Eau de Cologne: Also refreshing in the hot weather, this scent-type contains only about 7% of oil essences. Because of its low oil concentration, it is ideal for younger males.

Application: Lasting about 2 hours, this can be frequently reapplied directly on the skin.
