There aren’t many people in the world that do not like perfumes. One might not like a particular type of perfume. However, there is going to be some kind of scent that you are going to fall in love with. And once you do, you will cherish it forever.
At its core, perfumes are just some chemical combinations. But there is something magical about fragrances. Humans love good smells and run away from bad ones. In a way, this is hard-wired into our brain. We are going to be that way forever. Moreover, pleasant smells also help people to lift their moods and feel good. Anyone would love to be in a place or with a person that smells good. Read this article to find out more about perfumes. Having a better understanding of them will help you make the right choices when you are shopping for them.
A brief guide to buying perfumes
Probably, the best thing about scents is that they are available in huge varieties. Although this is great, this also makes it difficult for less experienced people to find perfume that they would actually end up liking. It is impossible to go through millions of different fragrances to find out that perfect one, is it not? However, you don’t have to. This article will tell you all about the four different categories of perfumes and how to choose them. In this article, you will find some really helpful tips that you can use while shopping for them as well.
When you consider the concentration of essential aromatic oils in a perfume, Eau Fraiche has the least of it. A typical Eau Fraiche will have around one to three per cent of essential oils in them. This also means that the fragrance from Eau Fraiche will last only for an hour or so. In fact, the term “Eau Fraiche” itself means “freshwater”. This should give you an idea about what that really is. If a perfume is any lighter than Eau Fraiche, then it is probably just plain water. Eau Fraiche is also the least expensive type of perfumes that you will find out there.
Eau de Cologne
Eau de Cologne will contain a slightly higher concentration than that of Eau Fraiche. However, not significantly high. The concentration of essential oils in the average Eau de Cologne will be between two per cent and five per cent. While the smell of Eau de Cologne spreads significantly quickly, it doesn’t last much longer. You can expect the fragrance to last for a couple of hours. That’s it. Considering the concentration of perfume oils in things like aftershaves and moisturising oils, you can classify them as Eau de Colognes.
Eau de Toilette
The concentration of perfume oils in Eau de Toilette varies quite a lot. At the lowest end, it would contain four per cent of essential oils, and at the highest end, it would contain around fifteen per cent of essential oils. Because of that, the price and durability of Eau de Toilette can vary quite wildly from each other. But one downside of Eau de Toilette is that among all other perfume categories, it has the highest concentration of alcohol. And when it comes to the longevity of the fragrance, Eau de Toilette can last for around two or three hours after spraying.
Eau de Parfum
If you are looking for a perfume that lasts the longest, then here is your answer. Eau de Parfum contains the most concentration of perfume oils. It can be around ten per cent or fifteen per cent. The rest of the mixture will be alcohol and water. In fact, Eau de parfum is the best option for people who want a really long-lasting perfume but need more control while applying than pure perfume oils. Eau de Parfum is, therefore, lighter than pure perfume oils but yet provides fragrance that can last all day. You can expect the fragrance from Eau de Parfum for six or even ten hours.
Tips on buying Perfumes Online
Finding the right type of perfume can be much harder than you might think. One of the reasons for this is because there are thousands of different fragrances out there. To make things even more difficult, the difference between some scents can be very subtle and will require a trained person to identify the difference. However, it can be easier if you know what factors to consider in sprays and scents. Here are some tips that you can follow when you are shopping for them.
Type of perfume – First of all, you have to decide what kind of perfume you want to buy. It can be a concentrated perfume, Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette, Eau de Cologne, or Eau Fraiche. The difference between all of these is in the concentration of perfume oil. A concentrated perfume can contain up to forty per cent of perfume essentials. On the other hand, the number of essential oils in Eau Fraiche can be as little as one per cent.
Choose your scent – There is a countless number of scents you can find out there. While it is easy to decide whether you want Eau de Toilette or Eau de Parfum but choosing the right scent can be ten times more difficult than that. Also, this completely depends upon personal preference.
Linear vs non-linear – This might sound like some complex mathematical concept. However, it is not. If a perfume has linear nature, that means the fragrance stays pretty much the same until the smell completely disappears. Non-linear scents change their fragrances from the time that you spray it until the scent completely disappears.
Pricing – The pricing of the scents and sprays are interesting. There are really cheap sprays to ridiculously expensive ones. You will come across scents that cost fifty or a hundred dirhams easily. To a great extent, this difference in price can be because of the difference in the concentration of essential oils. A fragrance that is difficult to mix will naturally cost more than others as well. But some of it is also because of the difference in the brand.
There are many different types of perfumes on the market. These include aftershaves, body lotions, colognes, roll-ons, and of course, the good old fashioned sprays. Regardless of what exactly you want, you can find them easily using our shopping search engine. That way, you can also compare the prices and features of different products and find the best ones out there. Finally, don’t forget to check out all the amazing products from the Perfumery category.
Question & Answer
Why do we wear perfume?
Well, this is actually an interesting question. The reality is that nobody knows exactly why humans wear perfumes or when we actually started doing that. However, we can assume that people started wearing perfumes to mask the unpleasant smell of their perspiration. But today, it has become a lot more sophisticated. There are much more variety of scents available these days for really affordable prices. Today, people also wear scents as part of their personality. Some people choose a scent and even make it a part of their lifestyle.
Why do some perfumes get discontinued?
There are a few possible reasons why a company might discontinue a specific scent. One obvious reason for this can be a drop in sales. If a scent is not performing well in the market, the company might find it not worth producing it anymore. Another indirect reason can be the increase in prices of the ingredients that go into the making of that particular scent. Or even worse, those ingredients might even go extinct. So, when you can no longer find your favourite scent on the shop shelves, maybe it’s time to look for another scent.
Why do some perfumes cause headaches?
Even though it is a very common problem among some people, scientists have no clear explanation as to why some perfumes cause headaches. Also, not everybody might get a headache because of the same scent. One assumption is that this type of headache is psychological. So, there might not be a clear scientific reason. But scientists also suggest that some chemicals in some perfumes can cause the blood vessels to dilate and increase the blood pressure. When this happens, the person might feel a headache for a short period of time.
