The Different Grades of Perfume

The Different Grades of Perfume

When it comes to perfume, there are a few different grades to choose from. Each grade has its own unique concentration of fragrance oil, which affects how long the scent lasts and how it projects.

Here are the different grades of perfume, along with their concentration of fragrance oil:

  • Parfum (also known as extrait de parfum or pure perfume): This is the highest grade of perfume, with a concentration of fragrance oil between 20-40%. Parfums are the most expensive type of perfume, but they also last the longest. They can typically last for up to 24 hours on the skin.
  • Eau de cologne (EDC): This grade of perfume has a concentration of fragrance oil between 2-5%. EDCs are the lightest and most refreshing type of perfume. They typically last for 1-2 hours on the skin.

In addition to the concentration of fragrance oil, there are a few other factors that can affect how long a perfume lasts:

  • The type of skin you have: People with oily skin tend to hold onto scents longer than people with dry skin.
  • The climate you live in: Perfumes will evaporate more quickly in hot, humid weather.
  • The amount of perfume you apply: The more perfume you apply, the longer it will last.

So, which grade of perfume is right for you?

It really depends on your personal preferences and needs. If you want a perfume that will last all day, then a parfum or eau de parfum is a good choice. All of our perfumes at Zaydan NYC are no less than eau de parfum grade, which mean they are long lasting and very potent throughout the entire day. 

If you're on a budget, then an eau de toilette or eau de cologne is a good option. And if you want a light, refreshing scent, then an eau de cologne is a good choice.

Here are some tips for choosing the right grade of perfume for the occasion:

  • For formal events, a parfum or eau de parfum is a good choice. Check out our collection at Zaydan NYC
  • For casual wear, an eau de toilette or eau de cologne is a good option.
  • For hot, humid weather, a lighter scent like an eau de cologne is a good choice.
  • For cold weather, a heavier scent like a parfum or eau de parfum is a good option.

No matter which grade of perfume you choose, make sure to apply it correctly.

The best way to apply perfume is to spray it on your pulse points, such as your wrists, neck, and behind your ears. This will help the scent to project and last longer.

With so many different grades of perfume to choose from, there's sure to be one that's perfect for you.

So, take some time to explore your options and find the perfume that you love. A good place to start is Eau de Parfum, which will ensure the scent is long-lasting and enduring enough to truly experience throughout the date.

Here are some additional tips for choosing and wearing perfume:

  • Don't overapply perfume. A little bit goes a long way.
  • Avoid applying perfume to your clothes. This can cause the scent to fade more quickly.
  • Store your perfume in a cool, dark place. This will help to preserve the scent.
  • Enjoy your perfume! Perfume is a great way to express your personal style and to smell your best.
