    Default What lasts longer? Which has more sillage?

    1. What lasts longer?

    Perfumes made with natural oils or those made with synthetic extracts?

    I read somewhere on a "natural essential oils" site that commercial perfumes produced with synthetic extracts last longer whereas those fragrances made with natural essential oils go away quicker so they need to be repplied during the day. Is this correct?

    2. What has more sillage?

    EDT-s or EDP-s?

    I would tend to think synthetic fragrances have stronger lasting power and more linear development on the skin

    eau de Cologne
    eau de toilette
    eau de parfum
    extrait de parfum

    also parfum de toilette
    eau de parfum haute concentration
    and mists etc


    different concentrations for the same fragrance doesn 't just mean the same formula at different concentrations!!
    usually eau de toilette don 't have the same formula as the extrait de parfum and even eau de parfum

    when it comes to classic perfumes, as we all know most if not all of them have been reformulated but extraits de parfum remain the closest to the original formulas

    i.e you 'll only find the rare and precious 'jasmin de Grasse' in Joy and No 5 by Chanel in their extrait de parfum version that 's replaced by a cheaper jasmine for eau de toilette and eau de parfum concentrations.

    I didn't know that! I have #5 in Parfum and EdP and see if I detect a difference in the jasmin aspect (I probably can't..)
