Lifestyle: Women’s Fragrance Edition

Hey lovelies! Happy Independence Day to my readers hope your holiday was fun. This week we dwell into the luxury world of Perfumes and Eau De Toilettes.
It’s hard to explain why we associate luxury and perfumes but back in the days a women was considered as from the high society by the way she dressed and smelt. As only a women from higher class had access to these good fragrance oils it was always related to better lifestyle.
So that’s enough history on how we landed here. I’m here to break it down for you my ladies (You can thank me later)
Q. What is Perfume and Toilette / why do we have so many names, when they all cordially mean the same
So basically the entire science is around the concentration levels of the perfume / oil used in the mix. The Essences are named from the Highest to the lowest levels of Concentration.
1. Perfume
2. Eau De Parfum
3. Eau De Toilette
4. Eau De Cologne
A cologne has the least concentration ranging from 2-5% perfume oil. Followed by Eau De Toilette containing 4-10%, Eau De Parfum has 8-15% and a Perfume which is sometimes referred to as Extrait contains 15-25%!

Q. What is the difference between a Deodorizer and a Perfume?
A Deodorizer is applied directly on the body whereas Perfume is sprayed on Clothes. Also the concentration level is much different with Perfume again having the highest concentration.
