Understanding the Types of Fragrance

As you shop for women's fragrances, you'll find that products have different names like eau de parfum and body spray. It's important to understand the features of these various types of fragrance so that you can choose the right one for your needs.

  • Eau de parfum formulas are roughly 15 to 20 percent perfume oil, giving them the most powerful and longest-lasting scents.
  • With 5 to 15 percent perfume oil content, eau de toilettes are slightly lighter and often more economical than parfums.
  • For a light, subtle scent, you can choose an eau de cologne, which is usually 2 to 4 percent perfume oil.
  • The lightest fragrances are body sprays and eau fraiche products. These formulas are mostly water and have a refreshing feel on the skin.

Interpreting Notes

When you understand how perfumes are described, you can get a feel for how the products will smell even when you're shopping online. The various scents found in women's fragrance products are referred to as notes. When you first apply a fragrance, the top notes are most noticeable. These scents quickly fade and are replaced by the mid notes or body of the fragrance. Mid notes linger on the skin for approximately 1 to 2 hours before the base notes of the fragrance become apparent. Depending on the type of fragrance, the base notes may be detectable for a few hours or the entire day.

Other Considerations When Shopping for Fragrance

There are a number of other things to consider when shopping for women's fragrance products online and in stores. Think about what season you'll be wearing the fragrance. During the summer months, fragrance products smell stronger. As a result, you may prefer to use a lighter eau de toilette or cologne during hot, humid weather and an eau de parfum during winter. You should also take into account the occasion. Stronger perfumes are often best for special occasions and evening wear, while lighter, fresher scents tend to be better suited for daytime and the workplace. Lastly, consider the size of the bottles as you compare your fragrance options. Small bottles will give you the ability to try a fragrance to see if you like it and are a convenient choice for travel. Larger bottles give you a longer-lasting supply and often are more economical. Some brands offer gift sets with travel and full-size women's fragrances, giving you one bottle for home and one for use on the go.
