What’s The Difference Between Eau De Parfum And Eau De Toilette?
It’s not that confusing after all.
A quick trip to the fragrance department of any store can quickly become overwhelming. Aside from it being a lot to handle for your senses, the many different types of fragrances can be downright confusing. (And they’re all in French!)
So have you ever really thought what those fancy French words really mean? Say for example, the real difference between the two most common terms we see in the store, Eau de Parfum and Eau de Toilette?
We did some research about this and it turns out, the only difference between them is the concentration level of the perfume to its alcohol or water component. This will determine how long a fragrance will last on your skin.
A fragrance tagged as Eau de Parfum has a high level of concentration, around 10-30%. It’s the most common type of fragrance people have, as it’s quite long-lasting as it is. On the other hand, an Eau de Toilette, like the Black Water Women Gold, has a concentration of 5-20% only, so it’s not as long-lasting as an EDP. Naturally, an EDT is more affordable than an EDP.
We hope this short explanation clears things up for you. Now go ahead and splurge on your next scent!
