In this article, we are going to talk about the different types of fragrances and how to choose the right fragrance for you.
The different fragrances in the perfumery world
Eau de Toilette
An eau de toilette is appreciated for its lightness and subtlety, thanks to the choice of its aromas. Ideal all year round, we like it in summer for its freshness. An eau de toilette is a perfume that can be worn everyday. It makes you travel.
Eau de Parfum
Unlike perfumes which are much more concentrated, an eau de parfum has a lighter scent concentration. One of the aspect of an eau de parfum is that it has more powerful base notes, which allow a better hold on the skin. These strong base notes stay on for a long time after spraying in skin or clothes.
Known for its lightness, an eau fraîche has very little alcohol concentration. Itcan have different properties: invigorating, soothing or even energizing. Thus, wearing an eau fraîche is a way to take care of your body while wearing a lovely smell on a daily basis.
In the perfume world, perfume absolutes are the most widely used raw materials because of their concentration. Just like essential oils, perfume absolutes are made from flowers and resins. The plant is macerated, then the alcohol evaporates to obtain the essence of the plant itself.
Eau de Cologne
Eau de Cologne was created by an Italian perfumer who settled in Cologne, Germany in the 18th century. Less concentrated than perfume, it is a fresh and ultra light water that does not stay long on the skin or on textiles. Everything will depend on its composition and the choice of aromas for its base notes.
