Types of fragrances according to their concentration

Types of fragrances based on their concentration

Fragrances are classified and distinguished by the percentage of concentration of the pure essence that is diluted in a base of water and alcohol. Depending on the concentration of the pure perfume, the fragrance will be more or less intense and long-lasting.

Which fragrances last the longest?

Normally, more concentrated perfumes are longer lasting, meaning they have a more extended fixation on the skin until the fragrance disappears completely.

However, a distinction must be made between duration and projection. Projection (sillage) refers to the scent’s trail, its ability to be felt. A perfume can have a lot of projection but not be very long-lasting: an Eau de parfum can have more projection than an eau de toilette, which does not necessarily mean that its sillage is longer-lasting.

One factor determining the perfume’s duration is its raw materials’ quality. At Àuria Perfumes, we work with high-quality raw materials to ensure that the fragrance has a long-lasting trail – an attribute that consumers highly value – regardless of the concentration chosen by our customers: eau de parfum, eau de toilette, eau de cologne, etc.
