Carolina Herrera Pure Oil Of Musk For Women And Men 15ml
Known for its soft sensuality and its enveloping,
Perfumes, whether for men or women, contain a fragrance concentrate (essential oils) diluted in a mixture of alcohol and water.
In reality, the fragrance concentration percentage and its level of alcohol influence how long the scent lasts, and determine its category.
There are four types of perfume with specific characteristics:
Its concentration varies from 20% to 40% in an extra-fine alcohol solution of 96%.
This fragrance lasts longer than other types and is generally reserved for special occasions, especially for the evening and night.
Base notes make up most of the fragrance.
The perfumer places emphassis on the noble quality of the base notes to reinforce its tenaciousness and volume.
A few drops of perfume applied directly to the skin, preferably on the pulse points, are sufficient to reveal its trail and intensity.
Sometimes called parfum de toilette or esprit de parfum, its concentration varies from 12% to 20%.
Eau de parfum is long-lasting and remains for 5 to 10 hours. The middle notes make up most of the fragrance.
The perfumer highlights these notes to enhance the perfume’s sparkle.
