Different kinds of fragrances

Perfume, Eau de Parfum as well as Eau de Toilette – it’s easy to become confused with all the different kinds of fragrances that are on offer.

Perfumes are in fact essential oils which have been diluted with up to 78% to 95% denatured ethyl alcohol; the fragrance depends on the percentage of the dilution.

It’s all about the strength
