Perfume Concentrations – Perfume Strength

Perfumes consist of a concentration of perfume oils. The more perfume oil in a fragrance, the more ‘strength’ the fragrance has. The strengths are divided into the categories you see below:


EDP and EDT are simply different concentrations of the raw perfume—called “concentrate” or “oil” by the industry—in an alcohol solution.

Eau de Parfum (EDP):
Longer lasting as it is more concentrated and contains less alcohol which is good news for your skin – alcohol can have a dehydrating effect and act as an irritant for certain sensitive skin types.

Eau de Toilette (EDT):
A cheaper and generally more popular concentration and suitable as an everyday fragrance.
