Choose your Scent Concentration

Perfumes have different names depending on their lasting power. Typically, the most expensive perfumes are the ones that last longest, while cheaper perfumes do not have as much staying power. You can usually see the type or concentration of the perfume under its name on the front of the bottle.

Eau de cologne has the lowest fragrance concentration, lasting about two hours. It is 3-5% oil in a mixture of water and alcohol.

Eau de toilette is a slightly more concentrated type of perfume and will last three to four hours. It is about 4-8% oil.

Eau de parfum has a higher oil concentration than eau de cologne and lasts around six hours. It is 15-18% oil mixed with alcohol.

Choose your Perfume Family

Consider which scents you or the perfume recipient enjoy. Perfumes generally are separated into four scent categories, though many perfumes contain a subtle mix of scents. If you are buying perfume for someone else, see what kinds of perfumes they use. If you have no idea what kind of scents you like, don’t worry: you can figure out what scent family you prefer when you are trying perfumes in the store.

  • Floral/Sweet perfumes smell like freshly-cut flowers.
  • Citrus/Fruity perfumes smell like fruits, particularly citrus fruits.
  • Oriental/Spicy perfumes smell musky and complex.
  • Woody/Chypre perfumes smell woody and earthy.

Ask Others About Their Perfume

Be conscious of the scents people around you are wearing, no matter if you’re at work, on the train or in class. If you catch a whiff of something you really like, ask the wearer what kind of perfume it is. You never know, you could find your new scent without even stepping into a store.

Compare Perfumes side by side

After you have visited all the perfume stores you planned to and have several choices, gather all the samples and blotting sheets. Use the same procedure as in the store to test each perfume. Keep narrowing down your options until you make your decision.
