What Is the Difference Between Perfume, Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette, Cologne?
Shopping for fragrance can be confusing at best, or overwhelming at worst. Not only are there top notes, middle notes, and bottom notes, but whole classes of scents. What’s more, once you’ve decided on a scent, another decision must be made: perfume, eau de parfum, eau de toilette or cologne?
Fragrances are available in perfume, eau de parfum, eau de toilette, or cologne form. The main differentiating factor of these is the concentration of aromatic compounds in a solvent – that is, how much fragrance is in the formula’s composition. The more actual perfume concentrate it contains, the longer the scent will last on your skin, and the more expensive the product. Following is a breakdown of these categories.
Perfume, also referred to as perfume extract, is the most concentrated formulation, and is usually the most expensive. It contains highly aromatic compounds. Due to its high amount of aromatic compounds, it also tends to last the longest when applied to the cloth. It is usually sold in small bottles of 1 ounce or less.
Eau de Parfum
Eau de parfum, also called eau de perfume, is the next most concentrated formula, and one of the most popular purchases. It consists of normal range aromatic compounds.
Eau de Toilette
Eau de toilette is also a popular choice, and is less expensive than the perfume or parfum formulations, although its scent will not last as long when applied to the cloth. Eau de toilette contains less aromatic compounds.
Cologne, or Eau de Cologne
Short DescriptiEau de Cologne originated in Cologne, Germany. Today, it is a generic term that defines a class of scented formulations by its typical concentration of about 2-5%. Cologne products are available for either men or women, and are sometimes mistaken for aftershave, which is actually a formula containing moisturizer, an antiseptic agent, and perfume. In addition, aftershave can be a gel, lotion, or liquid.on

Why do some men wear Cologne, and others prefer to wear After Shave?
After Shave Lotion will usually sting as well as help close the pores after shaving. After Shave Balm is actually soothing to the skin. After Shave Gel also soothes the skin, but cools the skin as well and relieves razor burn.
What do fragrance notes refer to?
Fragrances are comprised of many different scents, these scents are called “notes.”
Top notes are very light and last just a few minutes (5-10 minutes). Middle notes become apparent in about 15 minutes after application. These can last up to an hour or more. Bottom notes are the heavier ingredients. These last the longest, usually for several hours.s.
How can I keep my fragrance from going bad?
Keep all fragrances in a cool, dry area, and away from windows as sunlight can unbalance the various ingredients. An opened bottle should be kept in its box to insure a longer shelf life.
My fragrance has been discontinued, how do you still have it in stock?

My perfume does not spray, nothing comes out, is it broken?
To get your fragrance spraying again please follow these instructions below:
Hold one finger against the spray nozzle.
Use your other finger to pump the spray 10-15x.
Remove your finger from the spray nozzle.
Pump the spray another 10-15x as needed.

What is the difference between a splash and a spray?
There is absolutely no difference in the fragrance. The difference is in the method of application only. However, a spray bottle, being sealed all the time, may actually have a longer shelf life. Making the decision between spray and splash is entirely a matter of personal preference.
