If you often use perfumes, you will find that some perfumes are long-lasting while others last for a short time. Why? First of all, it is related to the type of perfume. According to the concentration of fragrance, perfumes are generally categorised into five types: parfum, eau de parfum, eau de toilette, eau de cologne and eau fraiche. You may often ignore their differences, but in fact, they vary in duration, efficacy and price. Parfum is composed of 25%—40% concentration of fragrance and lasts for 5-8h. Eau de Parfum is composed of 15%—20% concentration of fragrance and lasts for 5-6h. Eau de Toilette is composed of 5%—15% concentration of fragrance and lasts for 3-4h. Eau de Cologne is composed of 2%—4% concentration of fragrance and lasts for 1-2h. Eau Fraiche is composed of 1%—3% concentration of fragrance and lasts for about 1h. Generally speaking, with higher fragrance concentration, the perfume lasts for a longer time. Perfume that smells fresh and light, such as cologne, lasts for a short time. In addition to the concentration of the fragrance, the spraying method also matters. Following these two points makes the perfume last longer: First, when you spray it on your wrist, don't rub your wrists, otherwise the top notes may disappear faster. Second, moisturizing your skin before using perfume makes the perfume more long-lasting.
Everyone has different personal fragrance due to the skin condition, temperature and environment, so one perfume may diffuse various scents with different duration on each individual. However, the duration only represents different types rather than quality.
