Perfume is a mixture of essential oils, aromatic compounds, fixatives and solvents to give the body a pleasant smell (Wikipedia 2011).
Perfume types generally reflect the concentration of aromatic compounds contained in the perfume.
The most common types are described below to help you choose what perfume type you would like to purchase.
- Eau de Perfume (EDP) contains 10-20% (typically 15%) of aromatic compounds.
- Eau de Toilette (EDT) contains 5-15% (typically 10%) of aromatic compounds.
- Eau de Cologne (EDC) contains 3-8% (typically 5%) of aromatic compounds.
The concentration of perfume types can vary according to the designer and brand of perfume.
The concentration of a perfume determines the intensity and longevity of a perfume. Therefore as the concentration increases so does the longevity and intensity of a perfume.
You might like to consider where you will be wearing your perfume, the occasion and the impact or statement you would like to make.
