Looking for ideas for that special Christmas present in 2023 for him or her?
One always wants to get a present that is accepted and really appriciated for the months following Christmas, so what do you get?
First ask the person well before Christmas if they have a wish list. If they haven’t thought of what they like, when shopping next, guide them through the cosmetics area of your local department store and see which cosmetic brand they like and get them to try a few fragrance testers. Now note what they like and especially for the men, make a note on your phone, email or text to yourself so that you don’t forget and have the information available when buying later!
Please do a search for fragrance products and compare on our website. If you are confused about seemingly different results and price extremes for the same product name, it may be because they are actually different products based on their mix of alcohol (ethanol), water and scented oils and in some cases, the mix is just ethanol and those precious scent oils, the best.
So what’s the difference between Eau de Cologne, Eau de Toilette (EDT) and Eau de Parfum (EDP) Sprays?
The rule of thumb is that the higher the concentration of those perfume oils, the longer a scent lasts on the skin. Therefore the more expensive it’s likely to be!
Cheapest is Eau de Cologne, like the quick spash of aftershaves in the morning lasting an hour or two at most.
Next is Eau de Toilette spray lasting two to three hours and the best is Eau de Parfum (EDP) Spray with a concentration of between 10 to 20% of scented oils and will last around 4 to 5 hours or longer.
