  • Perfume and Cologne – What’s The Difference

    Fragrances are available in different forms; colognes, perfumes and deodorants being the most widely bought and used among the lot. They appear the same for many. After all, both are fragrant potions that help you smell good. Dab a drop or two on your skin and you are good to go. If you think so, you’re mistaken. Perfume and cologne differ in their ingredients, their scent strength and their overall quality.
    When buying branded fragrances, you want the best value for the price you pay; not an inferior quality potion passed off as a high-end product. So, here are tips to tell the difference between perfume and cologne.
    1.    Ingredients:
    Both the fragrances use essential oils as the primary ingredient. The essential oils are mixed into bases of alcohol. The difference arises because of the percentage of essential oils used. Good quality perfumes are stronger and contain a higher concentration of essential oils. It is 30%-40% of the total mixture. On the contrary, cologne has a very low concentration of essential oils. It is only 2%-5% and the rest is alcohol and water.
    2.    Scent Strength:
    The scent strength varies based on the composition – the percentage of essential oils, alcohol and water. Perfumes last longer, in terms of wear, because it includes essential oils in their concentrated form. Perfume dabbed on the pulse points can last between 4-12 hours on an average and sometimes more than that. Cologne lingers for a few hours only. For this reason, people looking for mild fragrances often choose cologne. If you want to make it last longer, you will have to apply it in large amounts. You might also have to reapply it every few hours.
     3.    Cost:
    The cost is a major distinguishing feature between perfumes and colognes. Perfumes are generally more expensive than cologne. The price difference is on account of its composition. Essential oils are costly substances. Thus, a higher concentration translates into a higher price tag. But, the cost of a perfume bottle does not seem like a trouble because it will last you twice as long as a bottle of cologne of the same or larger size. The reason is one uses more of cologne to make its subtle scent intense and long lasting. Thus, in the bargain, perfumes offer better value than cologne.Perfumes are sprayed on the body from a distance while cologne is splashed, dabbed or rubbed on the skin. Perfumes are packed in fancy, colored and innovatively shaped bottles while the packaging of a cologne bottle is rather simple.So far, the most widely accepted difference between perfume and cologne all these years is that the former is for men and women while the latter is only for men. Scents are gender specific, but cologne is not only for men. Its subtle scent is the main reason for it being a popular pick with men. However, it can be used by women as well.These were the primary points of distinction between perfume and cologne. Even though one outperforms the others, it all boils down to a matter of personal preferences.

    Tips To Select The Best Perfume For You

    We often regard clothes to be a reflection of one’s personality and taste in fashionable items. Perfume is another such luxury item that enables others to draw an estimate of your personality. So, here are tips to help you choose a signature scent.
    Fragrance Notes
    When it comes to selecting a perfume at the mall or online, you will often come across the word “notes” in the form of top notes, base notes and middle notes. A single note perfume contains a single scent. In case of a bouquet – a blend of varied scents, one fragrance dominates the others. The scents are kind of arranged in layers and released gradually.
    The first scent detected by your nose is called the top note. It is strongest when you apply, but dissipates quickly. Middle notes are the most conspicuous and emerge once the top note becomes weaker. The base note is what lingers on. It is rich and can be sensed only 20-30 minutes after you have sprayed the perfume.
    Understanding fragrance notes is an important criterion to choose the best perfume for you. You must have come across occasions when a perfume that smelled perfect at the beauty counter didn’t smell very appealing when you landed home. This is because it is layered. The top, middle and base notes will help you understand what to expect from a particular fragrance. Fragrances are usually described based on their top note as musky, spicy, fruity or floral.
    Personal Preferences
    Everyone has a personal preference. Some love the intimate fragrance of lilacs and mellow fruits. There are others that regard the floral and fruity scents too overpowering and prefer the smell of freshly cut grass, woody undertones and clean laundry. Choose a fragrance that you like; one that won’t make you sick.
    Take Cues from Your Personality
    There are 9 primary fragrances – Floral, Fruity, Oriental, Green, Chypres, Citrus, Oceanic, Woody and Fougeres. Floral scents complement women who are optimistic, spontaneous and active. Orientals are the best choice for young women with an introvert and reserved nature. You can wear Chypres if you are an individual who loves to socialize. Spontaneous, lively, energetic and outgoing men and women often find citrus perfumes very appealing. Citrus options are also the perfect match for those who love simplicity and simply want to smell fresh and clean. Conveying a sporty attitude, Green perfumes are the best choice for those who love adventure and sport. It is for those who live a carefree life. Men can opt for woody scents owing to their masculine appeal. Wear a glamorous, captivating smell if you want to capture attention.
    The Occasion
    The occasion also dictates your choice of a perfume. Sweet-smelling floral scents can be worn to different occasions. The events include at a family wedding, at a church ceremony, an outing with friends or to a dinner date. It is inappropriate to wear a spicy or fruity fragrance to a job interview. It is best to stick with subtle scents such as citrus or oceanic perfume. Greens can be worn to outdoor events such as a game of golf, football, a campfire, a hike or a market stroll.
    Ask for Suggestions
    Ask your friends and family for suggestions based on your personal preferences. After you have purchased a perfume, ask for their opinions.

    How To Make Your Perfume Last Longer

    If you use a strong smelling perfume, this may not be much of a concern for you. However, persons who wear mild fragrances often face a tough time making it last throughout the day. It wears off easily. Here are a few helpful tips to increase the life of your signature scent.
    1. A Proper Selection:
    The ingredients packed in the bottle dictate how long a perfume lasts. Ethyl alcohol is a commonly used ingredient. It is added to dilute essential oils. However, these additives make a fragrance less robust. You should choose a potion with the highest concentration of essential oils. Manufacturers state that these potions have a life of 6 hours. It may vary based on an individual’s body chemistry.
    2. Place of Application:
    You might have observed that while you spray the perfume on your body, a few of your friends or colleagues apply it to certain areas of their body. The specific points include behind the ears, at the back of the neck, behind the knees, temples of the face, at the base of throat and on the inner wrists. There is a reason for it – these are pulse points. Applying perfume to pulse points increases its wear. The pulse points produce heat that release perfume in subtle shots.
    3. Time of Application:
    The time of application determines how well the perfume clings to your skin. The best time to apply it is after a shower. The skin pores are open. Fragrances also sit well on naturally oily skin. Cosmetic experts suggest applying a tiny bit of Shea butter, cocoa butter or olive oil to the pulse point prior to applying the perfume. The oils bind with the scents and release it gradually.
    4. Method of Applying:
    Many people dab perfume on their wrists and the next moment they rub one against the other. They do this believing that it will intensify the smell. As a matter of fact, this destroys the perfume notes. You should gently dab drops of scent on your skin and leave it to absorb naturally.
    5. Layer Fragrances:
    You might want to apply perfume in layers if you want intensify it. What do we mean by layering fragrances? It is easy. For instance, there are soaps, bath salts, body washes, body lotions, shampoos, conditioners and perfumes in floral and fruity scents. Layering fragrances implies using different products with a similar scent. You can use a scented soap or body wash while showering, a lotion after you bathe and dry yourself. Dust talcum powder and finally top it with cologne. It will make the perfume linger for a longer time. If you do not get you signature scent in body care products, you can make your own. Add fragrance concentrates to unscented products.
    6. Storage:
    Storage will also decide how long and how strong a perfume shall smell. 3-5 years is the shelf life of most perfumes. You should store a bottle away from excess heat and light. Too much of heat or light might alter its composition, color or smell. Store the bottle in its original case.
    A general tip as we sign off. You should spray perfume before you wear your clothes and jewelry. Some potions tend to leave stains while other strong formulas may damage precious jewelry.
