There is a saying that you are not fully dressed without a smile. While the previous statement holds true, it is also essential to consider how good you smell.
Each perfume or cologne consists of different ‘notes’. These notes consist of three different layers; base note, top or headnote, and middle or heart notes. They all work synergistically and create different scent notes like rose, gardenia, masculine notes, or even leather-based ones.
How to choose a concentration?
Fragrances come in four different levels of concentration. And with each increasing level, the price increases. Usually, colognes with high concentration have a much more powerful scent and last longer.
The highest concentration is called perfume or parfum, which lasts all day with just a single application on the wrist. The lower level is referred to as Eau de parfum, which typically lasts about 6 hours of application. The third level of concentration is called eau de toilette, which is affordable and something you find in retail stores.
