    The percentage on the bottle is typically the alcohol percentage -- not the oil percentage. And, no, Tom Ford is nowhere remotely close to 100% concentration.

    This is also the case with Gio Essenza, if I'm not mistaken. The bottle has the same dimensions, but the internal volume is different. The bottom and sides are thicker on the 75ml version.
