Perfume Terms:

Fragrance Strength Scale

Perfume is a combination of fragrant oils diluted in a high-grade alcohol in a concentration containing about 15-25 percent oil, the alcohol being about 90-95 percent pure. This is a parfum. Any mixture with a lower proportion of oil to alcohol is an eau (water).

There are different strengths of eau, their names measure the strength of a fragrance, or what percent of pure perfume oil the product contains. It does not affect the smell (they will smell the same) but will affect how long the fragrance will last on your skin.

EDC - Eau de cologne is the least concentrated form of a fragrance (2  - 5% perfume oil dissolved in water and alcohol), then comes...

EDT - Eau de toilette (4 - 10% perfume oil), followed by...

EDP - Eau de parfum (8 - 15% perfume oil), and finally the most concentrated....

PARFUM or Perfume (15 - 25% perfume oil)

Since the perfume oil is the expensive ingredient, price goes up accordingly with the strength.

Sometimes, manufacturer's will come up with other terms to define a fragrance strength, such as "parfum de toilette", "millisime", etc. Where these strengths fall depends on the company using the term. For example, "parfum de toilette", will usually fall betwen an eau de parfum and parfum, but some might use this term for an eau de toilette.

What is a Tester?

Testers are distributed by the manufacturer to promote their fragrances. They allow the consumer to sample a fragrance to determine if they like its scent and how long it lasts. All of our testers are sold completely unused with the entire original amount present. Many testers are sold without a box, or in white unmarked boxes. We save a considerable amount by purchasing unboxed testers, and we pass that savings on to our customers as well. Testers are an excellent option when buying fragrances for yourself.

Fragrance Groups

Floral - This is the largest category, and it includes fragrances who's primary ingredients are derived from flowers such as jasmine, rose, violet, carnation, orange-blossom, gardenia, ylang-ylang, etc.

Oriental - Generally full-bodied compositions that create an exotic, warm impression due to the inclusion of ingredients like spices, musk, balsams and resins.

Chypre - pronounced "sheepra", French for :cyprus" and first used by Froncois Coty to describe his impression og aromas he encountered on the island of Cyprus. He created a woodsy, mossy, citrusy perfume named Chypre, which is no longer made, but the word is still, used to describe fragrances that are made in that style. Chypre fragrances generally owe their soft, sweet, earthy natures natures to ingredientslike bergamot, oakmoss, citruses, and that 60's favorite, patchouli.

Citrus - These are compositions where teh inclusion of citrus fruits like lime, lemon, tangerine, mandarin and bergamot (often called hesperides) are blended to create a fragrance that has effervesscent or exhilarating qualities. This is more common in men's fragrances, but is increasingly popular in women's too. It's one of the oldest fragrance categories, dating back to ancient times.

Fougere - pronounced "foozh-air", French for "fern", these are fragrances with fresh, herbaceous notes on a mossy fernlike base.

Green - These are compositions where the predominant notes are derived from green plant parts and notes such as pine, juniper, grass, leaves, and herbs.
