Intensity Secret

The intensity of a scent depends on the fragrance percentage, which is the content of the fragrance composition in the solvent, usually alcohol. It is assumed that for parfum the minimum fragrance percentage is 16% – this is why parfum is the most durable, intensive and remains on the skin for longest.

Parfum

– from 16% to even 30-40% of fragrance composition (pure fragrance essence)

Perfumed water (Eau de Par fum, EDP)

– from 8% to 16% of fragrance composition

Toilet water (Eau de Toilet te, EDT)

– from 4% to 8% of fragrance composition

Cologne water (Eau de Cologne, EDC)

– from 3% to 5% of fragrance composition

Refreshing water (Eau f raîche)

– from 1% to 3% of fragrance composition
