    Different Types of Perfumes
    Perfumes are made from water, alcohol and perfume oil (fragrances). Eau de, a French word meaning "water of", are the least concentrated perfume types:

    * Aftershaves (AS), lotions & splashes: the least concentrated of all perfume types containing 0.5% - 2% perfume oils
    * Eau de Cologne (EDC): is usually used interchangeably with eau de toilette and contains 3% - 5% perfume oils
    * Eau de Toilette (EDT): contains between 4% - 15% perfume oils
    * Eau de Parfum (EDP): contains between 15% - 22% perfume oils
    * Parfum: the highest concentrate of perfume with approx 22% oils

      Wow..thanks.

      I'm glad I wasn't the only person out there who is perfumally challenged.

        if it's any consolation to you, I wasn't quite sure I knew the difference either... but I had no idea that eau de toilette was such a small concentration!!
