Understanding Perfume Concentration

The following list details the different concentrations in the production of perfumes. Your experience regarding longevity or sillage (scent trail) might be effected based on a particular concentration. There are different percentages of natural oils or aromatic compounds used in the production of these products which directly effect potency of the perfume.

Perfume or Parfum: The ultimate luxury and long lasting hold with 15-40% aromatic compounds

Esprit de Parfum: 15-30% aromatic compounds. This is a very seldom used strength

Eau de Parfum: A long lasting concentration that can be used more generously than perfume with 10-20% aromatic compounds. You will sometimes see this as “millésime”

Eau de toilette: A light concentration with 5-15% aromatic compounds

Eau de Cologne: 3-8% aromatic compounds

Perfume mist, Brume de Parfum, Voile de Parfum, Eau Parfumée, Eau Sans Alcohol: 3-8% aromatic compounds and typically non-alcohol solvent

Eau Fraiche, Splash and After shave: 1-3% aromatic compounds
