The difference between a
Perfume, an Eau de Parfum (EDP) and an Eau de Toilette (EDT) is the
concentration of the fragrance oil. Perfumes have the highest concentration of
oil, followed by the EDP and thereafter an EDT.
There are no expiration
dates on fragrance products, although recently manufacturers have indicated
approximately 3 to 5 years from the date of production. Others say
approximately 3 years from date of first use. Manufacturers have also indicated
PAO (Period after Opening) on most of their products.
Over time, contact with
air, exposure to sunlight and high temperatures may affect the integrity of a
fragrance. To maximize the shelf life of a fragrance, it is recommended that it
be kept in a cool, dry place and and away from sunlight. Always place the cap
back on the bottle and use the box (if applicable) for additional protective
Top notes provide the
first scent impression of a fragrance once it has been applied to the skin.
They are usually lighter, more volatile aromas that evaporate readily. Their
scent usually lingers for between 5 and 30 minutes.
Heart notes (or middle
notes) make up the body of the blend. They may be evident from the start, but
will usually take 10-30 minutes to fully develop on the skin. They are the
notes that classify the fragrance family (floral, oriental, chypre, etc, see below).
Base Notes are those with
the greatest molecular weight. They last the longest, and are also important as
fixatives, that is, they help slow down the evaporation rates of the lighter
notes, giving the fragrance holding power
Perfume testers are
exactly the same as the original fragrance, only without the fancy retail
packaging. Testers may come with or without a cap and usually come in a variety
of Tester packaging, as originally produced by their manufacturer. Fragrance companies
use testers for the purpose of demonstrating their products and therefore the
quality of the fragrance is equal in all ways to the retail product.
All perfume and cologne
testers are brand new and unused. Take advantage of the considerable savings
for foregoing the fancy box.
Perfumes, colognes or
other beauty products indicated as having Imperfect Packaging are those whose
packaging have become slightly dented, scuffed or worn through shipping and
handling. The perfume or cologne inside is brand new and unused, yet it's
respective packaging is not in it's original retail condition, although not
deemed useless. Imperfect Packaging perfumes are discounted relative to their
"in perfect" retail condition counterpart.
