eau de huh? whats the difference?

Not all scents are created equal. If you’re going to wear it, you need to know the difference:

Perfume extract (Extrait): 15-40% aromatic compounds. This stuff is powerful and like most deadly poising it only comes in very small packages. A little goes a long, long way.

Eau de Parfum (EdP), Parfum de Toilette (PdT): 10-20% ( aromatic compounds. Sometimes listed as “eau de perfume” or “millésime”. Concentrated but not deadly.

Eau de Toilette (EdT): 5-15% aromatic compounds. No, it’s not made with toilet water.

Eau de Cologne (EdC): Chypre citrus type perfumes with 3-8% aromatic compounds. Light and bearable.

Splash and After shave: 1-3% aromatic compounds. Like the name, splash, mostly water.
