The right perfume

Choose the perfume that combines with the character and essence that you want to convey is easier than many think.

Knowing how to differentiate fragrances, intensity and aroma is what you need to know to achieve the ideal fragrance.

The types of perfume are differentiated by the concentration and intensity of the perfume oil that they contain, for example the Eu de Cologne contains a concentration of 2% to 5% and lasts up to 3 hours (it is the frequent intensity in the types of perfume).

Eu de Toilette has a concentration of 4% to 10%. They tend to be fresher and lighter than perfumes and last between 3 and 4 hours. Eu de Parfum usually with a concentration of 10% to 20%, is the common variant in female fragrances, so it would not be the first choice for dad. Its trail lasts between 5 and 8 hours and its true smell appears with the background notes at 2 hours on the skin. And the Perfume contains the maximum concentration of pure perfume essence, up to 20% and 30%, of course it is the most expensive version and the smell can remain up to 24 hours.

In terms of how the evolution of the smell perceived over time is defined, the olfactory pyramid represents the structure of a perfume. It starts with the starting notes, they are the first impression of the perfume, softer notes, with the shortest duration (between 15 to 30 minutes) and disappear after time.

The heart notes, depending on the nature of the perfume and the skin, last approximately two hours; Also called medium notes are those that form the essence of the perfume and are usually perceived after 30 minutes.

The smell that appears when the perfume has almost disappeared and is mixed with the smell of the skin are the base notes.

They are base notes that take time to be perceived and long-lasting odors predominate. They can last from 8 hours to a whole day and change drastically from one person to another as they are the essence and the real character of a perfume.
To speak of its aroma we must say that there are olfactory families, and at present there are more than 10: Floral, Fruity, Green, Aromatic, Fougère, Citrus, Cyprus, Woody, Oriental, Musk, among others.
