Eau de Parfum, Parfum or Eau de Toilette?

A fragrance is something we always associate with luxury, fashion and a even a certain life style.
It can become our essence and signature as well as it can make us happy, fell in love and remember something or someone...

My friends where asking me the other day what's the difference between Eau de Parfum, Parfum  and Eau de Toilette.
I write this post in their honor explaining every variation, the way my wonderful mother explained to me one day.

-Parfum:
True perfumes are very powerful, containing 40% concentrate of the scent and a strong fixative, like skunk urine, so that the durability is very high and sharp.
Of course the quality and price are higher as well. Some people suffer headache with these concentrates, still some of them are delicious.

Joy's  appearence in 1930 has been an unprecedented event in the history of perfumery.
The designer Jean Patou in the middle of an economical crisis told to his perfumist Henri Almeras to forget about the pressure and  choose the most beautiful flowers to create a scent.
To creat 30ml of this precious perfum, 10,600 jasmine flowers and 28 dozen roses are needed. Jean Patou is the world's second largest natural jasmine consumer and owns flower fields in Grasse.
The bottle is designed by Louis Hsueh and consists in Baccarat crystal cut and polished by hand, decorat with fine gold.
For this reason Joy costs nothing more nor less than 957 euros and is sold, since its inception, accompanied with the slogan "Joy, the world's most expensive perfume".
I would say it is like liquid gold, because the scent is magnificent!

-Eau de Parfum:
"Eau" means water in french.
This means this solutions might have a higher porcentage of water in it.
Beacuse of that some people call it dilluated perfume. It also has a weeker fixative like alcohol that don't lasts as long as the one used in parfum.

Jour d'Hermès is a fresh eau de parfum perfect for spring / summer . It is very different from what the maison had done so far; with no hints of leather and a bottle created by the artisans of Hermès, Jour d'Hermes celebrates life and embraces the power of the sun god Hermès by letting light in and proudly displaying the maisons symbol at the golden bottle lid.

-Eau de Toilette:
Eau the toilette as well as Cologne are the most dilluated versions of a scent.


They are commonly used as daily fragrances.
Aire Loewe was the first fragrance created by the spanish luxury brand in 1985.
It hasn't change since then and still is a great choice if you are looking for a fresh and classy scent for the season!

This are 3 of my favourites fragrances Joy de Jean PatouJour d'Hermès and Aire de Loewe.
All of them are top quality!

We can say in conclusion that the only difference between eau de parfum, parfum and eau de toilette is basicaly the porcentage of scent and water as well as the fixative.
