Everyone loves to smell great. And while perfumes might not be the 'love potion' as advertised, we have to agree that there's something magical about a good scent. When you find the right one, it becomes an instant a mood-lifter, an intense memory maker and of course, an impression maker. So it is not surprising that most of us want our perfumes to last for long.
I love it when I can smell the whiff of the perfume that I applied in the morning on my skin when I'm back from work. This happens because I mostly choose Parfum or Eau de Parfum over Eau de Toilette, Eau de Cologne or Eau Fraiche. Confused by what these terms mean? We're here to help.
Parfums generally have the highest concentration of fragrance, between 20% to 30% to be more specific. Hence, it lasts the longest, for about six to eight hours.
Eau de Parfum can last up to five hours as the fragrance concentration in it varies between 15% and 20%. If you have sensitive skin, you must go for EDP instead of Parfum.
Eau de Toilette has a fragrance concentration of 5% to 15% and it can last for two to three hours.
Eau de Cologne has 2% to 4% of fragrance concentration and Eau Fraiche has 1% to 3% of fragrance. Both can last up to two hours.
Now that you know which type of perfume will suit you the best, let's move on to these incredible, long-lasting perfumes that'll keep you feeling fresh and classy.
