Guide To Different Perfume Types

Shopping for new perfume can be somewhat overwhelming, especially when you have to think of all the elements to consider. This can be anything from the type of perfume to the scent profiles.

However, before you consider all the add-ons, it is important to know the different types of perfumes that are available on the market. Thus, below we have outlined an in-depth guide to different perfume types for a proper introduction to the world of perfumes.

 Types Of Perfumes

Typically, there are five types of perfumes on the market. These include Parfum, Eau de parfum, Eau de toilette, Eau de cologne, and Eau de Fraiche. The main difference between these perfume types is their fragrance oil concentration; which ultimately, affects other behaviors and characteristics of the perfume.

 Parfum

Parfum is the purest form of perfume available on the market. Otherwise known as Extrait de parfum or pure perfume, Parfum boasts the highest fragrance oil concentration.  Typically, Parfum contains between 15% to 25% fragrance oil concentrations. However, sometimes, you may find premium perfumes with fragrance oil concentrations of up to 40%.

Due to this high fragrance oil concentration, Parfum tends to be the most expensive perfume type on the market. This is caused by the high cost of obtaining the fragrance oil. For example, you need up to 10,000 roses to make a single 5ml bottle of essential rose oil. Thus, the fragrance oil extraction phase can be quite costly.

It gets even more expensive for perfume makers that make their perfume using rare and premium ingredients.  Additionally, because of this high fragrance oil concentration, Parfum tends to last the longest amongst all the perfume types. When you apply Parfum, it can last on your skin anywhere between 6 and 24 hours.

Because it has a higher fragrance oil concentration, this means that it has the lowest alcohol concentrations. So for people with sensitive skin such as dry skin, Parfum is an excellent option, if you can of course afford it.

Eau De Parfum

Eau de parfum, also known as EDP, has the second-highest fragrance oil concentration after Parfum and has a higher alcohol concentration than Parfum. Similar to Parfum, it is a better option for sensitive skin as well, because its alcohol content is still relatively low.

Generally, Eau de Parfum contains anywhere between 15% and 20% fragrance oil concentration. It is generally less expensive than parfum, nevertheless, somewhat expensive. When applied on your skin, depending on the scent profile and ingredients, Eau de parfum will last you between 4 and 6 hours.

Amongst perfume types, it is one of the most commonly sought after as it is suitable and somewhat reasonably priced for everyday wear. Its longevity means that you can go a whole day and refresh it just once or not needing to refresh it at all.

Eau De Toilette

Eau De Toilette, also known as EDT, has the third highest fragrance oil concentration. EDTs have a fragrance oil concentration of between 5% and 15% and similar to EDPs, there are amongst the most popular perfume types. However, EDTs exist with false presumptions amongst most consumers – probably perpetuated by salespersons – that they are not as good as EDPs. Don’t fall for his trick!

EDPs are not at all better than EDTs – well, except in situations where you are comparing a high end EDP with a low end EDT. Eau de Toilettes are a variation of EDPs with less fragrance oil concentrations. Thus, their difference is that they are less strong (scent wise) than EDPS. However, their quality is the same.

Eau de Toilettes are designed for individuals that are looking for the same scent but an option that is more subtle rather than strong and pungent. Typically, many perfume experts consider Eau de toilette a daywear fragrance and Eau de parfum as a nightwear fragrance.

 Similarly, Eau de toilette will last you anywhere between 4 and 6 hours. So the next time you are perfume shopping, compare these two perfume types only based on the strength of their scents rather than longevity or quality – EDPs are not necessarily better than EDTs!

Eau De Cologne

Eau De Cologne, also known as EDC, is formulated with one of the lowest fragrance oil concentrations amongst other perfume types. Eau de Cologne has a fragrance oil concentration of between 2% to 8% and the highest alcohol concentration.  The lower fragrance oil concentration makes EDCs quite cheaper.

 Many EDCs come in bigger bottles as you may require you to apply more compared to when you apply Parfum or Eau de parfum. Typically, many EDCs are formulated for men as lighter fragrance variations for stronger perfume scents. Additionally, EDCs are used as colognes or aftershaves. Their recipes normally consist of herb and citrus notes as well.

Eau De Fraiche

Eau De Fraiche, also known as Fragrance water, is somewhat similar to Eau De Cologne as it lasts within an hour or two of application. Eau de Fraiche boasts the lowest fragrance oil concentration of between 1% and 5%. A good example of Eau de Fraiche is fragrance or body mist.

Eau de Fraiche has the lowest fragrance oil concentration, however; it doesn’t have the highest alcohol concentration. Instead, most of the remainder of Eau de Fraiche is water; which accounts for the name fragrance water.  

Whilst there are different perfume types, the key principle to stick with when choosing a perfume to invest in is that a higher fragrance oil concentration equals higher perfume cost. However, a higher fragrance oil concentration also equates to stronger perfume scent and sometimes, longevity. It is also a good idea to know the ideal purpose for your perfume.

For example, Eau de parfum is ideal for nightwear whilst Eau de toilette is ideal for nightwear. Eau de cologne is mostly formulated as a cologne or aftershave. Fragrance water on the other end is ideal for refreshing whether you are at the gym or the beach. After equipping yourself with the right information about perfume types, your next step would be to learn about the perfect scent profiles.

Pearl Jam Announces Vote-By-Mail Initiative

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band Pearl Jam today launched an initiative to encourage their fans to join them and take the “Take-Three Pledge: Vote by Mail, Recruit Three Friends, and Don’t Wait”.

Voting by mail increases participation and ensures that voters can cast their ballot easily, safely and securely.

“Voting freely and easily is our ultimate right as citizens of these United States” said Pearl Jam Bass Guitarist Jeff Ament. “It’s a hard-fought gift from our foremothers and forefathers.  Join us in our Take Three Pledge: Vote by Mail, Recruit Three Friends, and Don’t Wait. Learn more www.pearljam.com or text PJVotes to 52886 and join us.”

Pearl Jam has had a long history of activism and political involvement dating all the way back to 1992 when they hosted the free “Drop in the Park” concert in Seattle that registered thousands of voters.  For nearly three decades, the band has played in countless benefit concerts, been outspoken advocates for progressive causes, and donated millions of dollars to local and global non-profits personally and through their Vitalogy Foundation. Pearl Jam was active in the 2018 general election in its Rock2Vote initiative, which registered thousands of voters in Montana and secured commitments to vote.

“We believe America is at its best when every voice is heard,” said Eddie Vedder. “This is the most important election in our nation’s history. Our democracy is at risk. Your vote is your voice, and it’s time to use it.  Join us by voting by mail — something our band has been doing for almost three decades, since we began touring in 1992.  It’s safe, it’s easy, and it’s secure.”

Aisles Releases New Single

AISLES SHARES CRUSHING NEW SINGLE “SMILE OF TEARS”


The release serves as an introduction to new singer Israel Gil.

Stream the song on Spotify and Bandcamp

After almost two years of searching, the Chilean rock group Aisles welcomes their new singer, Israel Gil, with the re-recording of the song “Smile of Tears.” The track, taken from the album In Sudden Walks (2009), has a strong electronic influence from Depeche Mode’s eighties era and blended with the band’s own modern twist. “This song affects me a lot because when we recorded it, social distancing and the pandemic were starting in Chile –says Israel- The title makes a lot of sense to me, because in these lockdown days, with video calls and contact through social media, you pretend in front of the camera that you are happy, but you are suffering on the inside.” Germán Vergara, Aisles’ guitarist and producer, points out that they chose this song because “we have rarely played it live and we thought that this was a good opportunity to bring it back and to introduce Israel to our audience”. Israel is replacing longtime vocalist and founding member Sebastián Vergara, who stepped down as frontman of Aisles in October, 2018.

Israel, a classically trained musician and student of Music Theory at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, was discovered through the social network Vampr, an app that connects musicians from all over the world who have interests in common. German explains, “we liked his voice because it is honest and clear, it is very special”. Israel adds: “I saw this band in the app, German sent me a message because he liked a video I posted, and after that first contact I had a revelatory moment: singing would become my priority. I had never bet this much in my life.”

After an intense audition process, where the musician had to learn old and new songs of the band, Israel was chosen because of his motivation, his discipline, his attention to detail and his friendliness. “We feel that he has been part of the band for years –says German-even though we have really shared just a few months. There has been a lot of chemistry, a lot of conversation. We need to work with someone that makes you feel comfortable because the creative process is too intimate”. Israel adds: “After the audition process, I realized this is the path I want to follow, I want to see how this mechanism works. In this band, there’s a constant search and there are also different opinions, which makes it complex and also extremely motivating.”

Aisles, formed also by Rodrigo Sepúlveda (guitar), Felipe Candia (drums), Juan Pablo Gaete (keyboards, synth) and Daniel Concha (bass), are working on their fifth studio album, which will be released in June, 2021. “Most of the music is already recorded, we only need to record the voice and we hope to start showing new material starting on January,” says German. This album leaves behind the sound and visual complexity of their previous album “Hawaii” (2016), keeping the melancholy and instrumental passages that have defined Aisles throughout their career, adding influences such as Porcupine Tree and Animals as Leaders.

About Aisles

Based in Santiago, Chile, and having released four highly acclaimed studio albums, Aisles have become South America’s most important progressive band of the past two decades. Their daring combination of rock, fusion, jazz, and world music illustrates the band’s eclectic approach. The group has toured the Americas, Europe, and done extensive touring cycles in Chile, opening for household names such as Marillion and Focus. Their latest studio album, ‘Hawaii’ (2016), was called a “masterpiece” and chosen among the best albums of the year by media outlets such as Prog (England), Neoprog (France), Raw Ramp (England), and Chile’s premiere rock magazine, Rockaxis. After parting ways with long-time vocalist and founding member Sebastián Vergara in late 2018, Aisles has found a new singer and is starting a new phase with a different line-up and a new sound. The band will start releasing new music in September 2020, leading up to their fifth studio album, to be released in the first semester of 2021.

Tim Draper Invests in Blockchain Venture

Goren Holm Ventures, the Los Angeles blockchain accelerator and incubator known for producing one of the world’s leading blockchain investment conferences, Crypto Invest Summit, announced today that renowned venture capitalist Tim Draper has invested in Goren Holm Ventures and has expanded his partnership with the firm, now rebranded to Draper Goren Holm.

REMARKS BY ROLLS-ROYCE CEO TORSTEN MÜLLER-ÖTVÖS

The following below is spoken from Rolls-Royce’s CEO himself Torsten Müller-Ötvös.

 

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Welcome to the House of Rolls-Royce here in Geneva!

Each year we come to Geneva to update you about our business and to share with you some truly special examples of our wonderful products.

And this year is no exception.

As the world’s pinnacle luxury brand, celebrating our 115th anniversary this year, we take great pride in these beautiful and precious items, lovingly handcrafted by the nearly 2000 people who work at the Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood.

This celebrated facility in West Sussex, is acknowledged as a global centre of luxury manufacturing excellence. It lies at the very heart of the Rolls-Royce success story.

Our Home is a very unique place – a creative oasis where we are constantly guided by the vision of our founding fathers, Charles Rolls and Henry Royce to “Strive for perfection in everything you do”.

Since 2003 every Rolls-Royce in the world has been created here.

Ladies and Gentlemen, at Rolls-Royce, our clients are our life-blood. They are our heroes and our friends and we are obsessively focused on providing for their needs and desires. For them, being within the warm embrace of the Rolls-Royce family is an unbelievable experience, like no other. And they are deeply appreciative of our hyper-centric attention to the smallest of details.

The Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood has become a must-visit destination for large numbers of our valued clients.

They come from around the world to specify their Rolls-Royces and to meet our designers, engineers and bespoke craftspeople.

Many return later to view their creation being built in our factory or to take delivery of their Rolls-Royce in our fully bespoke Customer Suite.

So, from Goodwood to Geneva, this year, we have brought some of the best examples of products for you view and to enjoy. They are all truly lovely!

We have our complete product offering on our stand today, led by the world’s most exclusive luxury product the Rolls-Royce Phantom, described by many of you in the media and by our customers as “the Best Car in the World”.

Phantom is at the core of our company’s success. It is a global expression of ultimate achievement and I am pleased to report that more and more of our younger customers are experiencing our Phantom short-wheelbase as a self-driver’s car.

Phantom is flanked by Ghost, now in its 10th year of production and still in strong demand around the world. Ghost is a global favorite among our powerful, entrepreneurial clients.

Then, we have brought from Goodwood examples of our two highly contemporary, seductive coupe models.

Wraith – here in its Black Badge guise – is the ultimate powerful and agile Grand Tourer. Edgy and menacing, Wraith appeals to our young clients who are trendsetting, cosmopolitan citizens of the world.

And then, Dawn, our truly beautiful sexy and seductive drophead coupe. Dawn is much loved by our more social, fun-loving customers who crave the sensual pleasure of open-air travel.

Finally, to complete our product line-up we are joined this year by our hugely successful Rolls-Royce Cullinan, our first SUV.

Cullinan was launched to great global acclaim last year and has received effusive headlines in the media and an enthusiastic welcome from our customers.

I am delighted to tell you that our forward orders for Cullinan stretch into the fourth quarter of this year.

We are in full production at our Goodwood factory and continue to make substantial investments, including the employment of an additional 200 associates, in order to meet this very pleasing customer demand.

I can confidently say today that Rolls-Royce is set on a continuous and successful growth trajectory.

And speaking of success, it is with great pride that I can tell you that 2018 was another exceptional year for Rolls-Royce.

We set an historic business record, achieving our highest annual sales in our marque’s 115-year history.

We delivered 4,107 cars to customers in over 50 countries around the world and in doing so achieved year-on-year sales growth in all regions. The Americas remained our largest market.

But at Rolls-Royce it’s not all about volume.

Our unique and successful business model focuses on preserving the rarity of our products, which is a key demand of our customers, while at the same time achieving record levels of profitability.

This, we believe, is the real hallmark of how a true luxury brand should be managed.

In this regard I am happy to report that the Rolls-Royce business generates pleasing profits and we continue to contribute to the bottom line of our shareholder, the BMW Group.

Ladies and Gentlemen, please take a close look at and enjoy all the fine Rolls-Royces on our stand. Each one contains unique and beautiful examples of our world- renowned Bespoke offerings.

No other manufacturer of luxury goods can equal customer personalization to this level.

Indeed, today more than ever, it is globally recognized that “Bespoke IS Rolls-Royce”.

To more fully understand our Bespoke offering, please do take a particularly close look at this beautiful Phantom Tranquillity.

Created for those who conceive and achieve the impossible, Tranquillity is an expression of Phantom’s standing as the rarest and most desired object in the luxury world.

The Tranquillity Collection is strictly limited to just 25 examples worldwide and I am pleased to tell you that they have already all been purchased by discerning Rolls- Royce collectors.

Look into the car and see the tasteful integration of wafer thin shavings of the Muonionalusta meteor that fell to earth in Sweden over a hundred years ago.

And enjoy the highly reflective stainless steel, 24 carat gold plating and space grade aluminium elements in the car.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the contemporary Rolls-Royce of today – a 115 year old brand, completely relevant in the present and moving purposefully into the future. A vibrant, successful and sustainable business, providing the most discerning people in the world with the rarest and very best luxury products and service on Earth.

As for the future: well, as you can imagine, we are not standing still!

We are imagineering and already engineering an exciting future for Rolls-Royce. A future that will be fully electric, digital and technologically innovative while never overlooking our commitment to the custodianship of the great Rolls-Royce brand.

This is what our customers and the world expects of us and rest assured, this is what we will deliver.

But for now, thank you for listening and I invite you to join me and my colleagues on the stand for a closer look at our lovely cars.

Thank you.

YUNGBLUD’s new single with Halsey and featuring musician (also former Blink-182 band member) Travis Barker is out now. The song titled 11 Minutes “tells the story of a perfect tragedy that reflects modern love within our society. We are so distracted and focused on what’s next, we can fail to see what is actually in front of us. We don’t realise how much we need something until it’s taken away from us,” says YUNGBLUD.

YUNGBLUD – 11 Minutes (with Halsey feat. Travis Barker)

Made with producer/songwriters Matt Schwartz (Cold War Kids, Kylie Minogue), Zakk Cervini (Good Charlotte, Mayday Parade) and Chris Greatti (Grimes, Black Veil Brides), the hypnotic track combines moody guitar work and high-powered drumming with Halsey and YUNGBLUD’s urgent vocal exchange to spin the story of a couple that sabotages their relationship before it’s really even begun by caving in to societal pressures.

With Halsey – the GRAMMY® Award-nominated, multi-Platinum singer/songwriter who recently topped Billboard‘s Hot 100 with her 2x Platinum hit “Without Me” – and GRAMMY® Award-nominated musician Travis Barker – who has sold millions of records with his bands blink-182, Transplants, +44, and solo work, and made Rolling Stone’s list of the greatest drummers of all time – YUNGBLUD found like-minded souls who shared his vision.

“Working with Halsey and Travis was a fucking dream – at the end of the day we’re all rock kids,” says YUNGBLUD. “We grew up with a mutual adoration for the genre so it completely makes sense that we would come together and try to modernise it.”
