Perfumes and Eau de Parfums have the strongest concentration of fragrance, usually between 18-20%: scents such as Marem, Beatrix Rose, Orchid, LX48, 2571, and RÒS will all last longer on your skin and have the most sillage and strongest scent. Our Number Six EDP contains the highest concentration of oils, containing 20% fragrance oils.
Eau De Toilettes, such as our Honeysuckle, Gardenia, Lilac and our Centuries and Heritage scents are the next strongest with a concentration from 12-14%.
Our colognes in our Gold Cap Collection and our fragrance tonics in the Yellowstone Collection are next, with a concentration of 10%-12%.
After Shaves have the lightest fragrance, and the initial scent is sometimes slightly more bracing with additives such as Menthol that help condition your skin and close your pores after shaving.
Our fragranced triple-milled soaps usually have a much lighter concentration of fragrance, 2%-3%. The scents that we offer in Perfumes and EDPs are usually also the strongest scents in soap, but will still be much lighter than wearing the scent.
How long a fragrance lasts and how it projects to others also depends on how you apply it. Pressing (not rubbing) a small amount of fragrance into your pulse points will last longer; if you prefer a lighter application, spray a 'cloud' and walk through. One application is usually plenty with our high quality fragrances. Fragrance oils also reacts with your body chemistry so everyone's results will be slightly different.
