What is the difference between Eau de Toilette and Eau de Perfum?
The difference between Eau de Parfum and Eau de Toilette
It is a common belief that selecting a perfume is not just choosing a smell, you’re also choosing how people will remember you, as you showcase your personality. It, therefore, goes without saying that a fragrance is undoubtedly one of the most personal products you will purchase.
It is crucial, therefore, that you have an understanding of the difference between the fragrance world’s two foundational categories: eau de toilette (EDT) and Eau de Parfum (EDP).
Eau de Toilette vs. Eau de Parfum
The answer is not long-winded. Instead, it is rather straight forward - Eau de Parfum (EDP) has a higher concentration of fragrance oil than an Eau de Toilette (EDT).
Every fragrance will differ slightly, but in general Eau de Parfum is composed of 15% to 20% perfume oil, while an eau de toilette is lower, from 10% to 15%. Interpreting this you can say eau de toilette is “lighter and fresher” fragrance. Eau de perfume on the other hand can be described as being “denser and richer”, due to its higher concentration.
Eau de toilette (EDT) is one of the most popular fragrance choices because it lasts well and has a lower price point than Eau de Parfum. As you would expect though, EDP (Eau de Parfum) will last much longer due to its greater concentration.
