In general, there are 5 common types of scents. These include the following;
- Eau de parfum
- Eau de toilette
- Eau de cologne
- Eau de fraiche
The main difference between the five types of scents is their rich aroma of oils.
Parfum is a type of perfume that is very fragrant, and it is for this reason that it is always very expensive in the form of perfumes. Typically, perfumes contain about 15 to 40% fragrance oil. Making it harder, stronger, and oily/greasy.
Because of its durability, survival, and oily content, only a few dabs at pulse points will last all day or longer hours. Its strong aroma makes it easy to spot compared with other types of fragrances.
Eau De Parfum
Eau de parfum is sometimes simply called parfum and holds a fragrant oil of 10 to 15%. Therefore, they hold a lighter concentration of oil and more alcohol and water concentrations compared to perfumes. However, Eau de parfum is still a strong fragrance and will stay in your body for 6 to 8 hours. In contrast, eau de parfum is not as easy to spot as it is stored in a spray bottle or lid.
Eau De Toilette
Eau de toilette contains 4 to 15% concentration of aromatic oils. This light fragrance is usually stored in a spray bottle due to its fullness of low aroma and high alcohol content. Usually, it lasts anywhere from 2 to 4 hours; which means you will have to renew it at some point during the day. Or replace it with powerful eau de parfum at night.
Because of its light body, make it an ideal choice for office wear for any occasion when you do not want your perfume to irritate. Eau de toilette is ideal for warm weather during the summer and spring seasons.
Eau de Cologne
The type of perfume Eau de cologne is originally designed for people who want a simple variation of a particular scent. Over time, however, it has become a popular men's fragrance. However, you can still find some of the women's fragrances listed in the eau de cologne list. Eau de cologne contains 2 to 5% aromatic oils. Eau de cologne also lasts two to four hours.
This type of perfume is not only simple but also offers the option of your favorite fragrance at a cheap price. However, many expensive men's fragrances that come in the form of “eau de cologne” are often marketed as fragrances or after shaving.
Eau De Fraiche
Eau de fraiche, also known as fragrant water, is less expensive and less concentrated in perfumes. Typically, eau de fraiche contains between 1 and 3% concentrations of aromatic oils. Due to this fragrant oil and high alcohol content, the eau de fraiche will usually disappear within an hour or two and be spray-treated. Eau de fraiche also translates freely into freshwater. Therefore, it is a great summer product for beach or gym events. You can use eau de fraiche to relax after a workout or when relaxing at the beach.
