What's the difference between "Eau De Cologne" and "Eau De Parfum"? Does "Toilette" means I have to use it in the comfort room?" We'll try to make it simple and comprehensible for you with this list.

Here are the different kinds of perfume you need to know about:

Eau De Fraiche

"Eau Fraiche" literally means "Fresh Water". This type of perfume has the lowest fragrance oil concentration and diluted with more water than alcohol, making it the least perfume to last the longest. This kind of perfume is best to wear as post shower fragrance.

Eau De Toilette

Eau De Toilette, or also labeled as "EDT", is not something you use just in the comfort room. These perfumes are the most popular type since they are well-balanced and they are more budget-friendly. With its 5-15 percent oil concentration, these scents are enough to last you the day, but not until the evening. These are perfect perfumes to wear during work, since they contain fresh notes, and not too heavy for the nose.

These scents are perfect to wear on occasions where you would need the scent to last from start to finish. Also, take note that these perfumes are more expensive than Eau De Toilette scents.
