The scent you choose to wear defines your character and personality, so when it comes to finding a new fragrance it can be slightly overwhelming. The first place to start is to determine what note you’re most attracted to and then explore our fragrances from there.
- A fragrance is made up of notes; the top note is the first hit of scent, the heart notes make up the main body, and the base notes add depth to the fragrance.
- Base notes don’t fully release until thirty minutes after application, so don’t make any snap decisions on a new perfume, it may smell completely different from first spritz.
- Always keep your perfume bottles out of direct sunlight, and avoid submitting them to any extreme temperatures.
- Cologne is not just for men! Cologne is simply a certain type of fragrance which is made in masculine, feminine and unisex scents.
- Eau de Toilette (EDT) is not a weaker version of the Eau de Parfum (EDP). If a fragrance comes in both EDT and EDP form, this means they are likely to consist of different notes.
- Eau de cologne has the lowest concentration of essence, containing just 2 – 5% essential oil.
- Eau de toilette means a concentration of 5 – 10% essence and it lasts longer.
- Eau de parfum is typically 10 – 15% and is a bolder option, but still lighter and more subtle than perfume.
- Perfume has the highest volume of essential oil and should be used sparingly - anything from 15 – 40%.
