What is the difference between Perfume, Eau de Parfum or Parfum de Toilette, Eau de Toilette and Cologne?
IS there a difference between EDP (Eau de Parfum/ Parfum de Toilette), EDT (Eau de Toilette), and Cologne?
A new fragrance buyer may be puzzled by these terms. In this post, we will be covering the differences.
The differences are represented in the concentration, strength of the fragrance oil of the scent. Starting off, the strongest is the Parfum (Perfume). They last the longest and are composed of 12 to 30 percent perfume oil.
Newer Eau de Parfum variations are nearly as concentrated as the original extracts.
EDT(Eau de Toilette) , on the other hand are lighter in concentration. Fragrance levels are around 4 to 18 percent perfume oil in this case.
Eau de Cologne refer to any light fragrance, usually consisting of 1 to 3 percent oil and greater alcohol content.
EDP and EDT are centered around female fragrances. Male fragrances are usually referred to as cologne. However, that doesn't mean there aren't any male fragrances that are EDT.
Here at Beauty Vibrance, we carry a wide variety of all three.
