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.
