5. EAU DE COLOGNE(EDC), EAU DE TOILETTE(EDT), EAU DE PARFUM(EDP) SOIE DE PARFUM, PARFUM & PERFUME OIL WHAT DO THEY MEAN?
These terms are refer to the strength of the fragrance, or more specifically how much high grade alcohol and/or water that has been added to the fragrance oils. Parfum (generally the most concentrated form you can buy) has 15-25% perfume oil dissolved in alcohol. Any mixture with a lower proportion of oil to alcohol is known as an Eau.
- Eau Fraiche (3% or less perfume oil)
- Eau de cologne – EDC (2 – 5% perfume oil)
- Eau de toilette – EDT (4 – 10% perfume oil)
- Eau de parfum – EDP (8 – 15% perfume oil)
- Soie de Parfum (15 – 18% perfume oil)
- PARFUM (15 – 25% also sometimes referred to as Extract or Extrait)
- Perfume oil (15-30% perfume oil in an oil rather than alcohol base)
You may also see the term Parfum de Toilette. Most companies use this term to describe a concentration that is either the same as Eau De Parfum, or between Eau De Parfum and Parfum.
The 3 most common perfume fragrances you will purchase are:
- PARFUM – This is one of the strongest perfume fragrance available. This means that you need to use less and the fragrance will last much longer depending on skin type. Will last 6 to 8 hours.
- EAU DE PARFUM – EDP This is lighter than the Parfum and is less expensive, but still has long lasting fragrance smell. Will last from 3 to 5 hours.
- EAU DE TOILETTE – EDT This is a lighter fragrance and is therefore most used for the casual everyday use. It is less expensive than Eau de Parfum. Will lasts for 2 to 4 hours.
6. HOW LONG IS PERFUMES SHELF LIFE?
Most perfumes have a maximum shelf life of 3 to 5 years from their production date. Fragrances made with quality ingredients, and those that come in dark or opaque – as opposed to clear – bottles, will last longer.
7. HOW TO KNOW WHEN A PERFUME HAS GONE BAD OR OUT OF DATE?
The first thing is to check the colour of the liquid that is inside the bottle. Extreme heat and direct sunlight oxidizes the perfume. This causes the water and alcohol to evaporate and the oil to become unstable so the colour of it will be darker, so the chances are it’s gone bad and it’s time to dispose the perfume. But if the color is turning only slightly, the life of the perfume still can be extended: don’t throw it away yet.
Another signal is a sharp change in the aroma. If it doesn’t smell as flowery, musky or spicy as the perfume once did and aroma develops sour or has a vinegar smell, the chances are it’s gone bad and it’s time to dispose the perfume.
8. HOW TO MAKE PERFUMES LAST ON YOUR SKIN AND WHERE DO YOU APPLY?
- First of all make sure that your skin neat, clear and free from odour. The best time to apply perform is right after shower once you wipe your body dry when your body is moisturized and the skin pores are all open.
- The application of perfume to the pulse points of the body helps in lasting for long. Back of ankles, behind the ears, base of the throat, temples, wrists, cleavage, bend of elbow, and the back of knees are the pulse points. They secrete heat, helping in releasing the scent of your perfume time to time.
- Do not rub the pulse points, especially wrists, once you apply the perfume as it breaks the molecules of the cologne, wiping away its fragrance.
- Try not to spray on your clothing as it may stain your clothing, also then scent of the perfume will not last if you apply on clothing. Please take note if you have sensitive skin we will advise you to spray on your clothing instead on your skin, to prevent any skin irritations or allergic.
- Spray a mist of your favorite fragrance scent on your hairbrush. The aroma will last for hours and make your hair smell wonderful!! Some people will even spray a few squirts of their favorite fragrance directly into their shampoo and/or conditioner for a added fragrance smell.
- Last but not the least apply perfume properly. Hold the perfume bottle at about 12-inches away from your body, with its opening towards you, and spray it towards your body. Now it will create an aromatic cloud all around your body and then it will thin out to all parts of your body within few seconds, lasting longer.
