Q: Is your Sandalwood made from "real" sandalwood or is it an artificial fragrance?
A: Our Sandalwood Essential Oil is in a 10% solution of almond oil. This essential oil is totally derived from natural sandalwood essential oil. Our sandalwood line begins with sandalwood fragrance and has musk and other wood notes to round it out.
Q: What does triple-milled soap mean?
A: Triple-milled refers to the production process that pushes the glycerin by-product back into the soap to make it gentle and mild. The three passes through the milling process also press fragrance in while squeezing water and air out. The result is a dense, long-lasting bar with fragrance that lasts to the final sliver. Caswell-Massey triple-milled soaps do not float. They are mild and gentle. Extruded soaps like Ivory have no glycerin, have lots of air, float and seem to melt quickly in the shower or bath. A 5.8 oz. Bar of our Almond & Aloe Cold Cream Soap can last up to one month in the shower. However, it may crack around the edges as it absorbs moisture. This is not a defect but a sign of a dense, triple-milled soap.
Q: Which is the most concentrated fragrance? The most "staying" power?
A: Perfumes and Eau de Parfums have the strongest concentration of fragrance, usually between 18-20%: scents such as Marem, Beatrix, Orchid, LX48, 'Supernatural' Number Six EDP, VIC and ROS will all last longer on your skin and have the most sillage and strongest scent.
Eau De Toilettes, such as our Honeysuckle, Gardenia, Lilac and our Centuries scents are the next strongest with a concentration from 12-14%.
Our Colognes in our Heritage and gold Cap Collections 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.
