What’s the difference

Ever wondered about the differences between colognes and Perfumes?

Eau de Cologne
Eau de Cologne is 3 to 5 percent oil in a mixture of alcohol and water. It tends to be lighter and refreshing, typically with a citrus oil component.

Eau de Toilette
Containing about the same amount of perfume oil or a little more, somewhere between 4 and 8 percent  than Eau de Cologne, Eau de Toilette is mixed with alcohol instead of water.

Eau de Parfum
A higher percentage of perfume oil, roughly 15 to 18 mixed with alcohol makes up Eau de Parfum. It is more expensive than Eau de Cologne and Eau de Toilette.

Perfume is 15 to 30 percent perfume oil mixed with alcohol. Because it contains such a high percentage of perfume oil, it is far more expensive than Eau de Cologne, Eau de Toilette, or Eau de Parfum.

Papillon Perfume has a 20% oil to alcohol ratio!   These fine oils are imported from France and Switzerland.
