Eau De Toilette Vs. Eau De Perfum: Understanding The Different Perfume Strengths In Detail
Are you shopping for a new perfume?
If yes, there are a lot of things you should know regarding the strength of your future fragrance and the choices – which can certainly be overwhelming. Not only there are countless scents available out there, there are also many fragrance concentrations and different things you should have in mind when shopping for a new fragrance.
We have all seen the popular fragrance labels such as ‘Pour Homme’ and ‘Pour Femme’ which refer to fragrances for men (homme) and women (femme) accordingly. However, what’s most important here is to understand the popular etiquettes that relate to a parfume’s strength – such as ‘eau de toilette’,’eau de perfum’ and many others.
In order to help you see the difference, we are listing the meaning of each label below.
Eau De Cologne (EDC)
Also known as EDC, the ‘eau de cologne’ label has a much lower concentration of fragrance than the below mentioned types of perfume. The fragrance concentration here is somewhere between 2% and 4% along with a high concentration of alcohol.
As such, the ‘eau de cologne’ fragrance type is much cheaper than other types of fragrances – and the scent lasts for up to two hours. That is why the ‘eau de cologne’ bottles are usually bigger and have more of the fragrance inside.
Eau De Toilette (EDT)
With a fragrance concentration of between 5% and 15%, the ‘eau de toilette’ label is probably the only one that is ‘in between’ all the fragrance types. As such, it is the most popular type of fragrance out there and one that normally lasts for two to three hours.
This type of fragrance is ideal for daywear (while eau de parfum is ideal for nightwear) and the term derives from the French slang ‘faire sa toilette’ which means getting ready.
Eau De Parfum (EDP)
After parfum. ‘eau de parfum’ is the strongest type of fragrance with the highest concentration. Also, this is the ideal choice for a night perfume or a winter one (when talking about seasonal fragrances). With a fragrance concentration of between 15% and 20%, ‘eau de parfum’ lasts for four to five hours and is less expensive and more familiar than the strongest type – parfum. In fact, this type is one of the most common fragrance types and is perfect for daily wear.
Parfum (Extrait De Parfum)
The meaning of ‘eau de parfum’ refers to pure perfume, which has the highest fragrance concentration. Basically, a ‘parfum’ contains anywhere from 15% to 40% fragrance. However, the concentration is generally between 20% to 30% in most of the perfumes out there.
Of all the scents, perfumes last the longest (six to eight hours) and generally commands the highest price of all the fragrance types due to their high concentration of fragrance. On top of that, this category best suits people with sensitive skin as they have far less alcohol than other fragrance types and are therefore not as likely to dry out the skin.
