The existing variety of perfumes can make the process of buying a perfume more complex and more difficult. Each type has different characteristics and can meet different needs for each one of us. That is why it is important to know the features of each type of perfume and what they have to offer, so that we can evaluate which one the is right for us.
A perfume is characterized by its notes and can be categorized based on their strength, which is determined by their conciseness of aromatic oils, which also affects the shelf life of the perfume.
Before we explain in more detail the characteristics of each type and the differences between them, we must clarify the difference between the aroma and the cologne.
Aroma & Cologne
The fragrances are made from natural or synthetic essential oils, including water and high-quality alcohol, which corrects the fragrance. The higher the concentration of these oils, the more the scent remains on our skin.
In the case of cologne, we are referring to perfumes that have a high alcohol level and a low concentration of essential oils.
These acronyms are used to characterize a fragrance and define its type.
EDP - Eau de Parfum
EDP (Eau de Parfum) is one of the most common fragrance categories and is the deepest and most intense fragrance. It has an 8-15% concentration of oils, while on average Eau de Parfum perfumes last 3-5 hours. It is the type that people with skin sensitivities prefer, as it does not contain large amounts of alcohol. You can find a variety of authentic long-lasting Eau de Parfum fragrances such as Calvin Klein Euphoria Women EDP at Perfume Heart online store.
EDT – Eau de Toilette
EDT (Eau de Toilette) are usually cheaper than Eau de Parfum as they contain fewer aromatic oils and their shelf life is between 2 and 3 hours. The eau de toilette is suitable for use during the day as it is a lighter fragrance than the eau de parfum, which is suitable for evening outings.
