Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Perfume, Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette, and Eau de Cologne?

The difference between these types of fragrances is the concentration of the fragrance oils. Perfume has the highest concentration of oils, followed by Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette, and Eau de Cologne. The higher the concentration of oils, the longer the fragrance will last.

Why do some fragrances seem to last much longer than others?

There are a few factors that can affect how long a fragrance lasts. These include the concentration of the oils, the type of skin you have, and your body chemistry. People with oily skin tend to have fragrances last longer than people with dry skin.

Why do fragrances smell different on different people?

Each person's body chemistry is unique, and this can affect how a fragrance smells on them. For example, some people may smell a citrus note in a fragrance, while others may smell a floral note.

How can I make my fragrance last longer?

There are a few things you can do to make your fragrance last longer. These include:

  • Applying it to pulse points. Pulse points are areas of the body where your blood flows close to the surface of the skin. This helps the fragrance to evaporate more slowly.
  • Using a moisturizer. Moisturizing your skin helps to create a barrier that can help to keep the fragrance from evaporating too quickly.
  • Avoiding heat and sunlight. Heat and sunlight can cause fragrances to evaporate more quickly.
  • Reapplying throughout the day. If you want your fragrance to last all day, you may need to reapply it throughout the day.

What is the difference between a splash and a spray?

There is no difference in the fragrance itself between a splash and a spray. However, a spray bottle may have a longer shelf life as it is ostensibly sealed.

Why do some men wear Cologne, and others prefer to wear After Shave?

Why does fragrance contain alcohol?

What are the differences between After Shave Lotion, After Shave Gel, and After Shave Balm?

After Shave Lotion is the most common type of After Shave. It is a liquid that is applied to the skin after shaving. After Shave Gel is a thicker, more gel-like product that is also applied to the skin after shaving. After Shave Balm is a thicker, creamier product that is also applied to the skin after shaving.
