THE BEST PERFUME TYPES GUIDE

Perfumes and fragrances are sold at different scent strengths which are based on the level of oil extract mixed with water and alcohol. The oil extract primarily determines the overall strength of the fragrance.
Fragrance levels are as follows:
  • Parfum (PAR): 15% – 30% oil extract (most expensive, lasts approx. 6 hours)
  • Eau de Parfum (EDP): 8% – 15% oil extract (lasts approx. 3 to 5 hours)
  • Eau de Toilette (EDT): 4% – 8% oil extract (lasts approx. 2 to 4 hours)
  • Cologne (COL): 3% – 5% oil extract (least expensive, lasts approx. 2 hours)
Please note: The above may vary for different skin types/nose sensitivity and is a rough guide only. Retailers may not refund/exchange if you feel the above is not met.
