Difference between Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum

Question by Translated Content | 06/04/2012 at 12:36

On my perfumes, there is always a label below with the inscription Eau de Toilette or Eau de Parfum.

What does that mean exactly? With a toilet in the sense of a lavatory, the parfume has surely nothing to do, right?

These are different classes of dilution of the applied essential oil. We distinguish the following classes depending on the concentration of the fragrance oil:

TypeEssential Oils
Eau de Cologne3-5%
Eau de Toilette6-9%
Eau de Parfum10-14%
Extrait Parfum15-30%

Therefore, the strongest and most intense, but also the most expensive parfume, is Extrait Parfum, because it contains the most essential oils. Eau de Cologne, however, is correspondingly cheaper, but do not keep as long as the other ones.

Eau de Parfum-scents contain more essential oils than Eau de Toilette-scents. Accordingly, Eau de Parfum is also much more expensive than Eau de Toilette. The usual scents are mostly of the kind Eau de Toilette.
