The following are definitions and facts about perfume that you may not know. This information might enlighten, delight, and educate you when purchasing the right fragrance for you or for someone else.

Perfume Pleasant odor, a preparation used for scenting, fragrant, sweet, or agreeable in smell. (parfum)

Perfumery A perfume house that creates perfumes.

“Nose” A nose is a person who creates fragrances. Years ago perfume making was handed down throughout generations among families. However, now there are schools dedicated to the science of perfume making. Currently, there are three major French perfume-makers having their own in-house blender. These three are Chanel, Guerlain, and Jean Patou.

Eau de Parfum (EDP) 10-30% aromatic compounds. Usually has the most intensity and longevity.

Eau de Toilette (EDT) 5-20% aromatic compounds. Usually is less intense and less longevity than EDP. NOTE: Different design houses may vary the intensity where EDT may be stronger than EDP.

Eau de Cologne (EDC) 2-5% aromatic compounds. This is a type of light perfume that originated in Cologne, Germany and is defined by its typical concentration of about 2-5% esential oils. Eau de Cologne, or just “cologne”, has now become a generic term. Ironically, however, the original Eau de Cologne from Cologne is not an Eau de cologne, but anEau de Toilette, because it contains more than 5% aromatic compounds.

Why do many older people use too much perfume? As people get older, their sense of smell diminishes. Therefore, they apply too much perfume.

Does a fragrance smell the same on everyone? No. Everyone has a unique body chemistry based on skin type, hair color, and the environment in which we live. It is important to try a fragrance on your skin to see how it reacts with your own body chemistry. Also, different skin types affect the fragrance. Oily skin holds scents much more than dry skin. People with dry skin need to reapply more often.

How long can a fragrance be stored? Fragrances do not last forever. Fragrance bottles should be stored in a dry, dark place. Keep them away from heat as extreme temperatures can detroy them. Colognes and eau de toilettes (not parfum) may be kept in the refrigerator to keep them fresh. Fragrances can last up to three years from manufacture date. Take care to check dates.

Does perfume stain clothing? Most perfumes are safe to spray on your clothes without leaving a stain.
