Perfume Tips & Guide

Hye Readers,

Today im going to share with you the guide for perfume..i think most of you might know it already but its no harm in reading it twice..hahahaha

These terms refer to the strength of the fragrance, or more specifically, to how much high grade alcohol and/or water that has been added to the fragrance oils. Parfum (generally the most concentrated form you can buy) has 15-25% perfume oil dissolved in alcohol. Any mixture with a lower proportion of oil to alcohol is known as an Eau.

Eau Fraiche (Usually 3% or less perfume oil)
Eau de cologne - EDC (2 - 5% perfume oil)
Eau de toilette - EDT (4 - 10% perfume oil)
Eau de parfum - EDP (8 - 15% perfume oil)
Soie de Parfum (15 - 18% perfume oil)
PARFUM (15 - 25% -- also sometimes referred to as Extract or Extrait)
Perfume oil (15-30% perfume oil in an oil rather than alcohol base)
You may also see the term Parfum de Toilette. Most companies use this term to describe a concentration that is either the same as Eau De Parfum, or between Eau De Parfum and Parfum.
The 3 most common perfume fragrances you will purchase are:
PARFUM - This is one of the strongest perfume fragrance available. This means that you need to use less and the fragrance will last much longer depending on skin type. Will last 6 to 8 hours.
EAU DE PARFUM - EDP This is lighter than the Parfum and is less expensive, but still has long lasting fragrance smell. Will last from 3 to 5 hours.
EAU DE TOILETTE - EDT This is a lighter fragrance and is therefore most used for the casual everyday use. It is less expensive than Eau de Parfum. Will lasts for 2 to 4 hours.

Spray a mist of your favorite fragrance scent on your hairbrush. The aroma will last for hours and make your hair smell wonderful!! Some people will even spray a few squirts of thier favorite fragrance directly into their shampoo and/or conditioner for a added fragrance smell.
As we all know, fragrance scent rises, so for a longer last to your perfume smell, spray all your pulse points, from your ankles, behind the knee, wrist, inside your arm, neckline, ect.... Remember to FIRST put on your fragrance scented body lotion or body creme before your perfume, this will help ensure your smell will last hours longer and you will not need to use as much of your perfume :). So, if you get the gift set with all those added fragrance goodies, use them!!

Thank you for reading the guide, hope it has helped and you share it with ur fren if you think its necessary..hehehe..
